23 Apr How the Active Ingredients in Dixie Botanicals® Kicks Provide Energy
The active ingredients in Kicks provide a boost of all-natural energy while promoting balance.
Whether it is first thing in the morning or in the early afternoon, we all face times when we need to increase our energy to get through the day. Often times we turn to a cup of coffee, reach for a high-calorie energy drink, or opt for a snack that is filled with sugar.
If you are looking for a healthier and more balancing way to get that much-needed natural energy kick, you are in luck.
Formulated to capitalize on the balancing properties of CBD, Dixie Botanicals® Kicks provides your system with active ingredients that naturally encourage heightened levels of energy.
What are Kicks?
Designed as a healthy way to stay balanced and energized, Dixie Botanicals® Kicks are bite-sized CBD energy chews. Available in three delicious flavors, Kicks allow you to take advantage of the balancing and restorative benefits of CBD, along with caffeine and energy-boosting B vitamins.
Both our chocolate and sour apple-flavored Kicks energy chews are enriched with award-winning hemp-derived CBD, 100 mg of caffeine, and B-complex vitamins for a healthy boost of energy to start the day or when you’re on the go. Rather than caffeine, our mango citrus Kicks are formulated with 60 mcg of Vitamin D3 per chew.
With only 20 calories and 2 grams of sugar per chew, Kicks serve as a healthier alternative to energy drinks and high-sugar coffees. Kicks come in 30-count jars, enough for a month’s worth of all-natural energy when you need it.
Healthy Source of Caffeine
There’s a good chance you’re like 9 out of 10 Americans who consume caffeine, in one form or another, every single day. Whether it’s part of your ritual in the morning or used as a much-needed pick-me-up in the afternoon, caffeine likely makes a powerful influence in your day-to-day.
Dixie Botanicals® Kicks is a healthy choice for those looking for an extra kick of energy. Each bite-sized Kick supplies your system with 100 mg of caffeine, about the same as a strong cup of coffee.
Caffeine essentially blocks the compounds in your brain that make you feel tired. It binds to the adenosine receptors, prohibiting adenosine from binding and slowing down nerve cell activity to cause drowsiness.
The controlled release of caffeine that you get from Kicks provides you with sustainable energy without the crash or extra sugar and calories that come with energy drinks, coffee beverages, or other energy products.
Many energy drinks exceed the daily-recommended intake of sugar, containing up to 50 grams or more. This high-sugar intake can eventually wear out the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, increasing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
At just 2 grams of sugar and 20 calories per chew, Kicks are also a healthier and lower calorie option than most high-caffeine energy drinks and high-sugar coffees.
B-Complex Vitamins for Efficient Energy Conversion
While B-complex vitamins don’t provide energy directly, they play a role in energy production. All parts of your body – including your muscles, brain, heart, and liver – need energy to work. This energy comes from the food you eat.
B vitamins help convert the forms of dietary energy that you obtain from food into a form of energy that your body can use to fuel your muscles and other working tissues.
Acting as coenzymes, B vitamins unite with a protein component to form an active enzyme that can then stimulate the chemical reactions responsible for converting the calories from food into a usable form of energy.
By helping convert your food into cellular energy, B vitamins help ensure that your body gets the energy that it needs to run at its best.
CBD for Balance
Kicks energy chews are also infused with 99 percent pure CBD, or cannabidiol, a highly sought after all-natural cannabinoid that comes from hemp.
Like all cannabinoids, CBD stimulates your body’s endocannabinoid system. Your endocannabinoid system is responsible for keeping nearly all of your body’s functions in balance.
Functions that are crucial to you maintaining optimal energy levels — such as like sleeping habits, metabolism, and energy balance — are just a few of the functions this complex system is responsible for regulating.
By interacting with the endocannabinoid system through cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, CBD supports the efforts of the system and encourages it to keep your functions properly balanced.
Of the more than 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants like hemp, CBD is often times the cannabinoid of choice for those looking to maintain alertness and be at their best. Unlike THC, the well-known cannabinoid found in marijuana that causes a high, CBD is completely non-psychoactive. This means it won’t slow you down mentally or physically by causing a high.
