Avitae is Dietitian Approved

4J_Eg5Vm

The world of advertising and marketing spends nearly $600 billion dollars every year to show you what products to buy and not to buy.  With this kind of media coming at you every day, from every direction it can become tricky to really know what is good for you and your family and what is nothing more than clever presentation.  As a rule of thumb, we say the simpler, the better. 

You don’t have to take our word for it though! Instead of advertising the great things about Avitae, we thought we would share with you the top six healthy foods chosen by Harmon’s registered dietitian, Kayla Womeldorff.  There are certain things most people understand, like less sugar is better, preservatives should be avoided, high calorie intake is not healthy and natural ingredients are best. These were the fundamentals that Kayla searched for, but then she required great flavor, simplicity in the kitchen and all in the aisles of her local Harmons.

Halfpops_New_Flavors_900x550Every health conscious individual is always looking for that perfect snack that satisfies the sweet, crunchy or salty craving but doesn’t add too much to the waste line.  Unfortunately, most “lite” snack foods either taste like cardboard or are not lite at all.  Until you’ve had Half Pops!  This whole grain snack is half-popped popcorn that delivers a punch of flavor on the outside and a mighty crunch on the inside! Sometimes you need more of the sweet and creamy, like ice cream, but what diet ice cream actually delivers that smooth, milky texture and rich, sweet flavor?  According to Kayla, Halo Top Ice Cream!  It has 1/3 the calories of Ben & Jerry’s with a super, simple list of ingredients!

Healthy choices should not just be made with our snacks.  How about a homemade hummus to spread on toast, layer between cucumber slices or use in place of mayonnaise for a chicken salad!  Usually hummus is very time consuming, but Kayla found Bush’s Hummus Made Easy.  Once more a simple ingredient list in a convenient package, and all you have to do is add chickpeas!  Another option to whip up a quick and savory dinner are simmer sauces.  Seasoning packets span the culinary globe from curries to Korean BBQs to Cajun spice.  This is a busy night timesaver if you toss the sauce with a bag of mixed frozen veggies and layer it all on a bed of precooked brown rice!

So you see the theme here? Foods that are convenient for life on the go, nutritious for the healthy minded and have a simple ingredient list that doesn’t leave you confused.  That’s why Kayla promoted Avitae as well.  Natural caffeine blended with pure water gives you your energy boost with your daily hydration. It has no sugar, no calories and no preservatives, so it won’t be adding anything to your system that you don’t want, and there is a label with ingredients you understand. We don’t need fancy advertising to let you know Avitae is where it’s at!

Hear what Kayla has to say here.

 

Like Your Caffeine Without Cream and Sugar?

post

We know for some of you this may be hard to believe, but everyone in the world is not obsessed with coffee! … We paused for your shock. There are actually times a steaming cup of joe really doesn’t fit the bill like an August morning in the south when it’s 102 degrees with 65% humidity or while running a marathon in Florida. There are also the moments when even the most die-hard coffee drinker really doesn’t want another cup, but right now we’re talking to those who are taking a stand and demanding the same caffeine buzz as their coffee colleagues without the cream and sugar!

It seems the industry of caffeine and energy is a bit abysmal for those who aren’t into java beans.  There’s soda, but let’s face it; that is not really a viable option for the long term.  One here and there won’t rock the health boat, but if you drink it every day, you’re bound to end up with a bulging gut and no teeth. Hmm, that kind of sounds like a relative or two.

You could chug a few energy drinks, but that’s not really caffeine as much as a kryptonite concoction of herbal and chemical energy. They may work in a pinch, but they also cause you to swing from the rafters.  And we don’t know about you, but there isn’t one aluminum canned energy bomb out there that doesn’t make our taste buds pucker up from a sweet or sour overload.

At this point you may be giving up.  Perhaps you should just learn to drink the piping hot, black sludge that turned your dad’s teeth yellow. Didn’t he always say it would put hair on your chest?

STOP!

kick sub photoWe have a solution to your problem. Avitae.  As long as you’re good with drinking pure, clean water, Pomegranate Acai, Tangerine, Blackberry or Strawberry Guava subtly flavored, waters or even some bubbly water, then we have your answer.

No we’re not delusional.  We know we were talking about boosting your energy.  See, Avitae isn’t your ordinary bottle of water.  It looks like it.  It tastes like it.  It won’t feel like it.  This water has been fused with caffeine from green coffee beans!  Now you get the same benefits as the cream and sugar crowd without that full brew process.  We’ve even broken it down on the bottle for you. Avitae offers the coffee equivalent of a half a cup, one cup or a cup and a half.  Check out the label to choose the caffeine level that is right for you.

Now you can join the coffee break crew with your water bottle, enjoy every sip and walk away with the same energy as everyone else. Bonus, you’ll be better hydrated than everyone else too!

An Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

There is nothing like a super productive morning! You’ve answered the emails, made the phone calls, set the appointments, sneaked a peek at your Twitter account and now it’s 2 o’clock. You’ve gotten so much done it feels like a nap is in order, but is that really exhaustion from a busy morning? Did you know your Circadian rhythm, or sleep cycle, kicks in at night and around midday? Craving a nap is actually your body’s way of keeping a balanced energy throughout the day. It’s also why we need that afternoon pick me up!

You already clocked out for a lunch break, so it’s not really feasible to leave again for the double shot latte. Besides after all the coffee from the morning, your body could really use some good ole water. But how is that going to help with this yawn fest you got going on? Did you know that water also gives you energy? Not directly, but proper hydration helps the body convert food and body fat into energy.

Hopefully this is a good incentive to drink your H2O, but if it’s not enough, maybe we can give you another reason.

What if we could offer you pure, clean water that has been naturally caffeinated? NowDSC_0501 that’s a midday option that should be on everyone’s desk! Avitae can hydrate you and energize you all at the same time. And unlike most bottled caffeine options, you get to choose your level of caffeine, half a cup, a whole cup or a cup and a half! You also get to choose your flavor. Unflavored water is an option but so is Pomegranate Açai, Tangerine, Blackberry and Strawberry Guava. We all have different tastes and your caffeinated water should too. Keep an eye out for our carbonated water line coming to you very soon!

This is an afternoon pick me up that takes care of your health and your energy levels. Every ingredient in these bottles can be read by a fourth grader, making it a smart choice. There’s also no sugar, no calories and no chemicals. That makes it a healthy choice. You don’t need to add cream and sugar, you don’t need to stir and you don’t have to drink it right away. That makes it an easy choice. Grab a bottle and throw it in your gym bag, in your car, in your desk or clipped to your bicycle.

Have we given you enough reasons to perk up your afternoon with Avitae?

How about one more! It won’t stain your teeth. Smile.

Do You Know What You’re Drinking?

DSC_0788

They say knowledge is power. We say knowledge is health. So does that mean smart people are richer and live longer? That’s a question for your guru. We don’t actually have all the answers, but we can give you less questions.

Here are some things you should be asking. But for a simple explanation, we recommend avoiding them all.

What is caramel E150d and 4-methylimidazole?

What is glucose, sucrose and fructose?

Should I drink phosphoric acid?

What is aspartame?

How does soda dissolve battery acid?

Can energy drinks really cause heart attacks?

Why does coffee turn my teeth yellow?

What beverages are actually diuretics?

Does coffee raise my cholesterol?

Don’t worry, we’re not here to waste your time, so keep reading to see how we can simplify things.

How would you like to open a bottle, drink it, get a burst of energy and not have any of these questions? We may not have the answers to the world’s mysteries, but we can give you pure, clean energy without any confusion. Avitae.  Water and caffeine.

BottlesYep, it’s that simple. Water hydrates. Caffeine energizes. There are no artificial ingredients, chemicals, sugars or colorings. This is a healthy energy choice without any side effects or secrets.

Seriously, take a look at the label! Purified water, that’s a simple one. Natural caffeine, that’s pretty easy too!  It is extracted from green coffee beans. Citric acid and natural flavors vary on what Avitae you choose!

We’re not Gandhi or Einstein, but we do know that your body needs pure, clean water to survive and your brain needs pure, clean caffeine to thrive. Now you can have both with no questions, no mystery and no calories.

The Healthy Caffeine

DSC_0138

It’s the 21 st century folks, and by now we know a few things. We know that chemicals are bad for us. We know that soda is bad for us. We know that high fat, high sugar beverages are bad for us. We know to read the labels on our food and drinks. We know to increase our water intake to stay hydrated and healthy. We know that life can get really busy, really fast and sometimes we need a little boost to our energy. But how do we get our caffeine without the added chemicals, fat and sugar?

Soda pop first released drinks that rotted our teeth, filled our systems with chemicals, sodium and sugar and packed on the pounds. We got a little smarter, so they released light and diet versions that rot our teeth, fill our systems with chemicals, sodium and artificial sweeteners and pack on the pounds.

Coffee it is then. We can’t knock coffee, as we all like a cup in the morning, but the calories in a pumpkin spice latte, well that is a whole other story. A cup of black coffee is the healthiest choice, but once you add in your creamer, flavorings and sugar, it’s no longer just a cup of coffee. Drinking it all day, every day will stain your teeth, not to mention bring on a bit of coffee breath. The acids in coffee can also be a bit hard on the stomach.

On to the energy drinks! Do we really need to explain why all those chemicals and sugars are just not good for you?

Then how do you get your caffeine without all the negative side effects?

DSC_0562You drink Avitae! Hello benefits of science. Fresh, clean water that is good for you and required by your body, mixed with all natural caffeine extracted from green coffee beans! Here’s a drink that keeps you hydrated, gives you the extra energy you need, doesn’t add any chemicals or sweeteners and has a nutrition label you can understand. You get the healthy benefits of water with the healthy benefits of caffeine.

Wait a minute. Caffeine has health benefits?

Yes, it does! Studies show that it enhances brain function, i.e., makes you smarter, increases metabolism, i.e., burns calories faster, reduces risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, i.e. protects your brain, and lowers risk of depression, i.e., makes you happier! That’s on top of pushing you through an all-nighter, revving you up in the mornings, boosting your workout, keeping you alert while driving and making that long afternoon meeting fly by.

So get with the times folks! Put a bottle of Avitae in your gym bag, briefcase, purse and lunch tote. Now you get to check off your water intake and caffeine levels all in one gulp!

What Is Water With a Kick?

Avitae.  What is Avitae?  A new kind of hydration that is going to change how you think about water.  This isn’t your standard bottle of H2O; this is water with a pure caffeine kick.  So you’re thinking it’s a soda.  Nope. Then it’s a tea.  Nope.  Well a type of energy drink then.  Nope.  Simple, clean water that is going to keep you energized when you need it most.

Life is constantly on the go from the board meetings, to the gym, to kids waiting at home.  We have our morning coffee to get us going, but what about all the other hours in the day?  Avitae offers you a natural solution that is required by your body, water.  This is a caffeine option that won’t dehydrate you and won’t fill your system with added sugar and chemicals.

Drinking your recommended daily water intake can be a real chore, especially if you don’t care for plain water.  That’s why Avitae offers four lightly infused flavors: Tangerine, Blackberry, Pomegranate Açai or Strawberry Guava.  There’s also the matter of keeping enough caffeine running through your veins to get through the day.  We understand, and Avitae was designed to help.

kick sub photoDepending on your needs, Avitae offers you three different levels of caffeine.  Does your day require a half a cup, a whole cup or a cup and a half?  If one cup of coffee will do, then grab our 90 mg level.  If a little less is better, then grab the 45 mg.  If you’ve got a long one ahead, then get your kick with the 125 mg option.

We also understand that many of you simply don’t want another bottle of boring water.  So to keep your taste buds interested, we are about to launch a whole new caffeinated water that will let you get your bubbles too!  Sparkling Avitae is the carbonated caffeine answer soda pop lovers have been looking for.  This sparkling water will hint at four subtle flavor profiles: Black Cherry, Raspberry Lime, Berry Kiwi and Mandarin Passion Fruit, or you can choose the unflavored soda water to drink or mix.

No matter the Avitae product you crave, you’ll always know what you’re getting. Each bottle serves up refreshing and healthy caffeine, extracted from green coffee beans, with as few as three ingredients on the label.  For flavored varieties, the water has a mild blend of all natural flavors.  All of this comes with zero calories, zero sugar and nothing artificial!

For simplicity that works, Avitae delivers.
