Being tired isn’t always a result of a poor night’s sleep. Low levels of key nutrients can leave you feeling blah regardless of your bedtime. Here’s how Ka’Chava keeps you physically and mentally energized.
Boosting energy levels is about so much more than getting your morning coffee fix. To be truly energized, you need to exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and eat a well-balanced diet. Beyond that, several key nutrients play a critical role in converting food to energy and your ability to power through a hectic workweek—or workout—without running yourself ragged. Take a look at Ka’Chava’s energy-revving lineup.

Complex Carbohydrates and Protein:Support A Stable Energy Supply
Consuming refined carbs is like a rollercoaster ride. First, they give you a nice spike in energy, but what goes up must come down, and when your blood sugar drops, it leaves you feeling depleted and hungry for more. Fiber-rich complex carbs and protein, on the other hand, are like a leisurely trip in the countryside – slow and steady. That’s the even-keeled energy you need to get you through the day. Each serving of Ka’Chava contains 25 grams of complex carbohydrates and 25 grams of protein from sources that include pea protein, whole grain brown rice, sacha inchi, amaranth, and quinoa.
B-complex vitamins:Convert Food Into Usable Energy
B vitamins play a crucial role in helping you get the most energy out of the food you eat. All B-complex vitamins (which include vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folate, biotin, and pantothenic acid) help convert the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins on your plate into a form of energy that your body can use. Furthermore, vitamin B12 aids in the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout your body. Aside from vitamin B12 (found only in animal-based foods), B vitamins are found readily in a variety of fruits and vegetables, and one serving of Ka’Chava contains over 50% of your daily needs for all B-complex vitamins.
Iron:Provides The Brain And Body With Oxygen
Iron helps produce hemoglobin, a protein that allows red blood cells to carry oxygen to various tissues throughout your body. With low iron levels, insufficient oxygen reaches your muscles or brain, depriving them of energy and leading to physical and mental fatigue. In just one serving of Ka’Chava, you’ll get at least 30% of your daily iron needs from sources such as yellow peas, chia seeds, amaranth, and oats.
Vitamin C:Supports Energy Production + Boosts Iron Absorption
In addition to helping your body absorb plant-based sources of iron more efficiently, vitamin C helps make enzymes that synthesize carnitine—a compound that transports fatty acids into your cells’ mitochondria (a.k.a. the powerhouse of your cells) where they’re “burned” to produce energy. Foods such as citrus fruits, blackberries, spinach, and broccoli are high in vitamin C, and one serving of Ka’Chava contains about one-third of your daily vitamin C needs.
Phosphorus:Aids In the Production Of ATP
Phosphorus is vital to your body's energy-production game. It not only influences how your body uses carbohydrates and fats, but it also assists with the production of ATP—a molecule that your body uses to store energy and power a variety of biological processes. Phosphorus is readily available in many foods, and Ka’Chava contains at least 32% of your daily needs.
Magnesium:Aids In the Production Of ATP
Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in your body, including in the production and utilization of ATP—a molecule used to store energy and drive cellular processes. Nuts, beans, chia seed, flax seed, spinach, and cocoa all contain magnesium, and one serving of Ka’Chava packs at least 48% of your daily needs.
