Living on an island can shape our perspective about how our lives impact the planet and either positively or negatively affect sustainability. We’re not suggesting that we are green experts. Rather, we are interested in highlighting how we think, shop and spend can evolve so that can sustain the earth’s future for our kids. Plus we’re looking at some really cool stuff! Stay tuned!
The question above is what drives product development at Rise-n-Shine and so with the potential of that premise, we tried Wake Up on Time, a natural time-release energy supplement. You can take it just before bed and the special time-release formula gives its user energy in the morning and throughout the day. I say “we” tried it but I actually didn’t get a chance. This was yet another product that 14 yr old First Born claimed as her own when I opened the package.
Some info from the website:
Wake UP On Time consists of a select group of 100% natural ingredients proven to be safe in the food supply.Top research and over 50 years of manufacturing experience have combined for the first time to create the most effective and science-driven time released morning energy product in existence. Our patent-pending formula includes specialized and tested ingredients such as: Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12,and our Synergistic and Proprietary blend (Guarana seed extract, L-Tyrosine, Eleuthero Root Extract, also known to some as Siberian Ginseng).
Wake Up On Time is absolutely 100% guaranteed. Numerous of the active, 100% natural ingredients, are proven to significantly increase energy and alertness levels and have been cited in thousands of scientific studies. Taken before going to bed, the release of the ingredients are delayed to disperse throughout the body only at the end of the average sleep cycle so you wake up feeling great, refreshed and full of energy. Wake Up On Time is the only time released product of its kind with a 100% money-back guarantee. Wake Up On Time is the product of major research and testing, and is considered the one and only effective, time released energy supplement available today!
So let me just contextualize how “we” tried it. First off, my First Born daughter is attending an extracurricular class *before* school starts every morning. A 9th grader, she wakes up most days at 5:45 am, goes to her before-school class that starts at 6:15, and then gets on the bus for school. She has committed to this for the whole of her high school years. I’m proud of her because getting up so early is HARD. Most days I don’t even do it to make sure she gets up. So her ultra-full schedule and her early morning class is the reason why she snatched Wake up on Time away from me. And it works! She takes two pills (we checked the label to make sure these weren’t off limits to her because of her age) before bed and wakes up before her alarm goes off. She is bright-eyed and bushy tailed for her before-school class and this feeling of alertness and well-being lasts for her through out the day. The only drawback is that after using Wake up in the Morning for 6 or 7 days straight and then stopping, she had a headache (we’re guessing that this is because of the natural caffeine content–22%–in the guarana). We have dealt with this by making sure she skips taking this supplement every third or fourth day. Pretty soon she’ll finish the bottle—and probably will want to order more.
Mahalo nui, Rise-n-Shine, for keeping my teenager alert and on top of her schedule!
