Meal replacement drink makes mornings easier for people with chronic pain
Apart from fueling our bodies, breakfast foods are great sources of essential nutrients that include calcium, iron, B vitamins, protein, and fiber. Our bodies need these essential nutrients to jumpstart the day, but according to an article on The Huffington Post, 31 million Americans skip breakfast.
This is precisely the reason Mobius Nutrition was born.
Mobius is the first drink of its kind to be created with nootropics to help your mind stay focused, calm, and clear of mental fog. Nootropics supply energy, increased focus, and decreased stress with natural brain boosters. What some refer to as smart drugs, Mobius's nootropics are made up of herbs and amino acids.
Mobius shakes are packaged in single-serving packets, perfect for life on the go.
And since we already established the importance of key nutrients at breakfast, let's take a look at what's inside the package.
Coconut milk. The main ingredient in their shake recipe is coconut milk. Coconut milk carries several healthy fats that not only produce a source of energy for our minds and bodies but support in boosting our metabolisms, which can go a long way in back pain prevention.
Dr. Axe, a wellness physician, and popular radio show host says, "If you're looking to improve your heart, muscle, and immunity, look to coconut milk nutrition."
Nootropics. Google also calls nootropics smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers, which are found in supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that improve one or more aspects of mental function. Caleb L, who typically relies on coffee in the morning, thanks, Mobius and their nootropics for his transition into a healthier breakfast option.
“I am feeling more alert, focused, and calm than I usually do in the morning,” he recalls. “Typically I consume three cups of coffee each morning and get hungry from missing breakfast. Imagine Tweek from Southpark.”
Mobius's website creators graciously prepared a list of what nootropics are found in their meal replacement shake. Let's take a look.
According to the National Institutes of Health, L-Carnitine is an amino acid that transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of the body’s cells. The cells then burn this fat to produce energy. This is extremely useful as the majority of calories in Mobius Breakfast come from coconut fat. All of this will keep your brain energized throughout your morning.
Gotu kola: 500mg
Gotu kola comes from the Eastern medicine family, and is an herbal stress reliever. Studies published in the Nepal Medical College Journal and the Journal of Ethnopharmacology found that participants who took gotu kola had reduced stress and increased cognition.
Ashwagandha is found in India and is an herb used in Ayurvedic Medicine. In two double-blind, placebo-controlled studies published in the Indian Journal of Phsychiatry, Ashwagandha was shown to decrease anxiety.
Rhodiola rosea: 300mg
An herb that helps reduce mental fatigue. Studies were done with students and with physicians and showed that Rhodiola reduces the mental fatigue that the subjects experienced in stressful environments. The studies were both published in Phytomedicine: International Journal of Phytotherapy and Phytopharmacology.
Micronutrient dense. Mobius says that micronutrients are the quiet superstars to a happy, healthy, and energetic life. Imagine being able to start your day with an entire multivitamin without having to pop a handful of pills.
According to Fit Day online — a virtual resource for your fitness needs, “Several micronutrients that you may have heard of include iron, chromium, copper, iodine, and zinc.” If you are deficient in one or more micronutrients, it may negatively impact your overall health, which may be a contributing factor to your chronic back pain.
Micronutrients can be seen in many common foods you eat daily as well as in dietary supplements to give you that nutrient boost.
20 grams of protein. Beginning your day with 20 grams of protein aids in boosting our metabolisms and energizing our bodies. Protein from eggs or grass-fed beef collagen supports building strong muscles, healthy joints and durable hair and nails. If you don't have time to wake up and put on your chef hat to cook, take five minutes, mix the shake into your bottle of choice, and bam — your 20 grams of protein appear without any hassle.
Natural caffeine. Mobius includes 100mg of caffeine procured from Arabica coffee beans that have about as much caffeine as a hot cup of coffee without the acidity or aftertaste.

Electrolytes. Did you know our bodies are most dehydrated first thing in the morning? If you don't know — now you do. In order to combat this, we need an effective electrolyte blend that facilitates optimal hydration. Electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphate, conduct electrical charges that stimulate your muscles and nerves. In addition, electrolytes control a number of fluids in your body that may impact your body's cell function, blood volume, and blood pressure.
Since mornings set the tone for your upcoming day, we need all the help we can get. But why reinvent the wheel when Mobius did all of the work? You can still have time for a healthy breakfast that clears our mental fog while keeping us focused on what's really important — your health.
