I drink too much coffee, so recently a friend who is an AdvoCare Distributor contacted me and suggested I try AdvoCare’s Spark®. Understand that I wasn’t looking to lose weight with AdvoCare, I didn’t pay for it, and I’m not getting anything out of this. I was simply hoping to have an alternative to coffee, something that has hurt my stomach before (ulcers in 2013), and honestly — as a mom of three on the go, I could use more energy.
So with an open mind, I decided to give it a try. I sampled 4 packets (which I did once a day for a 4 day period) and in my own opinion, it worked for me. It replaced one of the two cups of coffee I drink each day. Note that Spark does contain caffeine. I felt that it did help with my energy levels and I am thinking about trying it again. It didn’t hurt my ulcers (win/win), either.
According to the company, AdvoCare Spark® is a unique multi-nutrient system that was developed as a nutritional source of energy and enhanced mental focus.* It’s sugar free with more than 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients that work synergistically to provide a healthy, balanced and effective source of energy that won’t overburden or over stimulate your body.* AdvoCare Spark® contains an effective amount of caffeine to give you the quick boost you’re looking for, B vitamins to enhance your body’s natural ability to produce and sustain its own energy, and neuroactive amino acids that help increase your mental focus and alertness by supporting your brain’s ability to receive and send messages. Note: Advocare is not for pregnant or nursing women.

To give me a boost of fruit, I created a smoothie with Spark. I used strawberries, pineapple, a packet of Spark in Pink Lemonade, and coconut water.
