I don’t normally indulge in energy drinks. I find passion goes a long way towards fuelling my daily task. If you’re living your dream, you tap into the Source and can keep going almost forever. So my first answer to energetic problems is to do what you love – and gradually turn that into your living.
However, when I was sent a natural, organic and fair trade energy drink recently, I was keen to try it out. The big O is a letter which immediately excites me. In my book it stands for a healed, whole and compassionately integrated world – my dream for this planet.
Some years ago Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy brought out their first energy drink. The founder is Toby Scheckter, the former racing driver. They are the makers of the world’s first 100% natural, organic and fair trade approved energy drink. The first one contained some organic sugar, which we know is no good for folk on a low G1 or weight loss diet.
low GI agave replaces cane sugar
So these clever people have now brought out a second, lighter version – the NEW Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy Lite.
Like the original, this delicious drink harnesses the power of nature to give a real energy lift whilst also boosting mental performance – but with the added bonus of using Organic Agave instead of cane sugar, which means it has a third less calories.
Each can of Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy Lite contains the perfect combination of organic ingredients to provide sustained energy. The blend of 100% natural ingredients releases energy over a longer period of time, as the Agave has a low glycemic index. This creates a sustainable energy lift that avoids the short lift and sudden ‘crash’ of other energy drinks.
farm-fresh lemon, pomegranate & elderberry
Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy Lite drink is made from a blend of organic fruit juices – lemon, pomegranate and elderberry – which give it the same great taste as the original variety. The other active ingredients remain the same as in the Original – extracts from organic raw green coffee beans and organic Guarana give the physical and mental boost from caffeine, Ginseng helps relieve stress and Green tea helps boost mental focus. As an added bonus all the ingredients are 100% natural and organic.
Toby Scheckter was raised on Laverstoke Farm, an organic farm in Hampshire. Involvement in the day-to-day activities of running the farm gave Toby a deep understanding and appreciation for the processes involved in producing quality organic products. Recognising that there was a significant gap in the energy drinks market for a healthier alternative, Toby spent two years developing the worlds first 100% Natural, Organic and FairTrade approved energy drink with a simple goal – creating the best tasting energy drink using only the best quality ingredients.
Following the success of the original drink, and due to unprecedented customer demand, Toby has spent the last 12 months developing Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy Lite and has managed to remove the sugar, whilst maintaining the delicious flavor.
“We have had such a great response from everyone on the launch of our energy drink and are thrilled about the demand for the Lite version. Fewer calories, doesn’t mean we lose out on taste!” said Toby at the new launch.
Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy Lite is available from Woolworths, Wellness Warehouse, Kauai, Engen QuickShops, Caltex, Fruit and Veg City, Melissa’s and Crave nationwide at a cost of R16.00 for a 250ml can. For more informatiion, click the banner below:
