So what is in AdvoCare Spark? Let’s take a look at the back of the box, and I will break down every single ingredient listed for you! Tell you why its important, and what it does!
There are a total of 15 calories packed into the punch of Spark! Spark contains vitamin A which is an important vitamin for the body for growth and development! Next on the list is Vitamin C. Vitamin C aids the body with stress, boosts the immune system, plays a role in protecting the body against heart disease and stroke. Next we see Vitamin E. Vitamin E works as an antioxidant. It helps protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are found in all our bodies, and are made when our body converts food into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals everyday by encountering cigarette smoke and air pollution. There is also thiamine and riboflavin within Spark. Thiamine is one of your B vitamins. It is your B1 vitamin. B1 converts carbohydrates into glucose within your body to produce energy. B vitamins also help the body metabolize fats and proteins. Riboflavin is your B2 vitamin, which also converts your body’s carbohydrates into glucose to fuel your body with energy. Niacin is next and is another B vitamin, it is your B3 vitamin. It helps similarly to B1 and B2. Going down the list of ingredients the next thing we see is Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12. Vitamin B6 is incredibly important to the body as it helps the body to produce neurotransmitters, which are chemicals that allow the body to carry signals from one nerve cell to another. Vitamin B6 is also needed for brain development and function. It helps the body to make our “feel good hormones” such as serotonin and norepinephrine. These hormones strongly influence our mood and our sleep hormone melatonin. Meaning that our mood is improved, and our sleep is being regulated! Vitamin B12 aids in keeping the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy. It aids in making our DNA, and the genetic material in EVERY single cell in our body! The rapid cell reproduction that is constantly going on in our body, every second of every day? Requires B12!! Next on the ingredients list we see Pantothenic acid, this is your B5 Vitamin… Are you starting to see how important your B vitamins are, and why Spark works so well!? Vitamin B5 works very similarly to B1 and B2! Zinc is up next. Zinc is similar to vitamin C, in that it helps the body stay healthy. It boosts the immune system by fighting off invading bacteria and viruses. Then we see Copper. Copper helps your body make red blood cells. What do red blood cells carry? Oxygen! The better you breathe, the more oxygen goes to your brain, the better you think! Copper also keeps your nerve cells and your immune system healthy. It aids in the formation of collagen and is a vital part of your bones and connective tissue. Chromium is up and it is awesome. Why? Because it helps control blood sugar, curbs carbohydrate cravings, and fights body fat. So what does that mean for you? It means that by taking Spark, you not only get the boost of energy you’re looking for, but it will also decrease your appetite. Further down we see Choline. Choline is a precursor of acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter vital to nerve and muscle function. Looking for better performance on and off the field? Spark has you covered! L-Tyrosine is seen next. It is an amino acid, which is a building block for protein. It has been known to help with depression, the inability to stay awake, and improving alertness. People have taken it for stress reduction, PMS and chronic fatigue, among many other things. Under L-Tyrosine we see Taurine. Taurine is another natural amino acid, that is a component of bile acids. Bile acids are important because they are used to absorb fat and fat soluble vitamins into the body. Taurine is used to help your body absorb all of the vitamins and minerals that is inside Spark! Up next is Caffeine! There is about as much caffeine in Spark, as there is in one 8oz cup of coffee. This is used to give you a quick boost of energy until the B vitamins, and all the other vitamins and minerals take over and kick into that long lasting energy you’re looking for! Glycine is also on the list, and is another amino acid (a building block for protein). Glycine is involved in the transmission of chemical signals in the brain, and is believed to improve memory. Next up on the list is L-Carnitine, which is another amino acid with in the body, and it’s job is to help the body produce energy! The last thing we see on the list is inositol. Inositol is a vitamin like substance that is found in many plants and animals. Research has shown that it can help with certain chemicals in the brain that could aid in conditions such as panic disorders, depression, OCD, and PCOS. Under other ingredients we see maltodextrin, citric acid, beet root powder, natural and artificial flavors, sucralose and silicon dioxide. Maltodextrin comes from natural plant starches. It is an easily digested sugar that helps sustain energy during endurance activities. It also replenishes stores of sugar in the muscle during recovery, after an intense physical activity. Citric acid does many things! It boosts your renal (kidney) health. It fights free radicals similar to vitamin E. It improves your body’s absorption of minerals. Meaning all those minerals in Spark, it helps your body to absorb and use them properly. Citric acid can also alleviate nausea by reducing gastric acidity. Are you worried Spark might upset your stomach? As someone who suffers from gastritis, I was! Hello citric acid. Thank you for the help! The beet root powder is for a natural color! Sucralose is an artificial sweetener used by diabetics or people looking to watch their weight. It is made from the sugar alcohol, maltitol. It has an excellent safety profile with more than 100 safety studies spanning over 20 years or research, showing sucralose to be safe. Last we see silicon dioxide. This is a supplement that is naturally found in the earth, in our body’s tissues and in our food. This is usually used to prevent ingredients from sticking together, or as an additive to enhance flavors!
