For calm alertness try...matcha.
Matcha's energy-boosting power comes from caffeine (a teaspoon of this green tea powder contains half the amount of caffeine of brewed coffee). However, Desiree Nielsen, Vancouver registered dietitian and author of Un-Junk Your Diet, adds, "Matcha has an amino acid in it, called L-theanine, which helps to relax you and oppose the effects of caffeine – so it gives you a kind of calm alertness."
For managing hormones try...maca.
This powder is derived from the root of a Peruvian plant, and its most promising health benefits are aiding hormone imbalances and sexual dysfunction. It's also commonly used for an energy boost and fending off osteoporosis.
For a metabolism boost try...goji berry.
Also known as 'wolfberry', goji berry's weight loss powers come from two amino acids (L-glutamine and L-arginine), both known to increase growth hormones and boost metabolism.
