Morning Spark

When I was training with my friend, Eric, over the summer, he started talking to me about AdvoCare. I don’t know how much you’re familiar with the company, but they make products for athletes as well as a line of products to help folks kick-start their weight loss.

At the time, I didn’t know much about them, but I am always hugely skeptical about multi-level marketing companies. Naturally, I thought Eric had been taken in by this company’s marketing, and bought it hook, line and sinker.

“Okay, Eric, maybe I’ll try some of that one day.” But, I never did try any.

Then, our third child came into the world and we were facing those late nights and early mornings again. Eric’s wife, Amy, introduced my wife to this product, called Spark. It’s a really popular AdvoCare product that is basically a vitamin water with caffeine. Since my wife only tolerated coffee for the sake of the caffeine, she was very open to trying some samples that Amy provided.

Wouldn’t you know, it was almost love at first taste. She was able to drink some Spark first thing in the morning and the combination of vitamins and caffeine would keep her going all day. Like Eve in the Bible, it wasn’t long before she was telling me, “You have to try this stuff, it’s good!”

So, with a skeptical “okay”, I let her make me a glass.

Needless to say, I fell in love with the product, too.

Since I’ve been using Spark, there have been some major changes in my life. First, they advertise that it will sharpen focus. Though this seems to be a ridiculous claim, I began to notice that I was much more tuned in at work and able to be more productive, especially early in the morning.

They also advertise that it will give you energy. Duh, there’s caffeine! What you might not know, though, is that I’m very sensitive to caffeine. I cannot drink a Mountain Dew without getting the jitters. The energy from Spark, however, doesn’t make me jittery. There’s just enough caffeine to wake me up, but not enough to make me crazy.

What’s most impressive, and not advertised by the company, is that our health substantially improved when we started using Spark. It’s loaded with all the vitamins and minerals we don’t usually consume enough of in our daily diet. So, when cold and flu season hit this winter, neither one of us got sick. No joke! All of the kids had a cold/ear infection and we breezed right through. I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the same results, but the only thing we did differently this year is use Spark every morning.

I joke with Eric that Spark is the “gateway drug” to AdvoCare. Seriously, though, after having so much success with Spark, we started trying other products. Eventually, we signed on to become Independent Distributors. I’ll periodically review the other products I use as time goes on. For now, I want to encourage anyone that is looking for a healthier alternative to their morning java, to consider adding Spark to your routine.

Happy Running,
