Caffeine is a naturally occurring substance found in over 60 plant species worldwide. It has proven benefits for increased energy, mental alertness and as an aid in weight management. It is provided in AdvoCare products as a purified ingredient or as a component of an herbal extract. With Spark you do not have the acidity of coffee.
I must admit that when I did my first Herbal Cleanse, I worried about giving up my coffee habit and getting headaches. Well, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the fresh taste of Advocare Spark Energy Drink, and never got a headache or any negative effects. In fact, I found that I was able to concentrate better, and didn’t have the “ups and downs” that I used to get when drinking coffee. In fact, I liked Spark so much, that I have never had a cup of coffee since, and that is pretty amazing given that I was choking down 2-3 cups a day prior to my first cleanse in October 2009.
