All-Natural Fizz Sticks Help Beat the Afternoon Slump: Arbonne has designed a vitamin-infused water mix-in intended to beat the afternoon slump.
People who find themselves nodding off at their desk every day at 2 or 3 p.m. shouldn’t feel guilty. The “afternoon slump” is a real thing, part of the natural sleep cycle in those who must get up early for work, says Jill Kay, executive regional vice president and independent consultant for Arbonne International, which makes natural botanical products.
Arbonne has designed a vitamin-infused water mix-in intended to beat the afternoon slump. Its Energy Fizz Sticks—a blend of antioxidants, green tea, guarana, ginseng, B vitamins and chromium—temporarily boost alertness, cognitive performance, endurance and motor performance while reducing fatigue, she says. The sticks are vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher, with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
“They’re easy to use,” Kay says. “You just add a stick pack to eight ounces of water and stir—although you shouldn’t pour it into a full water bottle, because it fizzes and might overflow. Some people pour out a few ounces and then add the stick pack. Once it has dissolved, you just add ice or refrigerate. Have one two or three times a day when you feel tired.”
