A calorie is not a calorie. Calories from protein, fiber and fat are good calories.
Calories from sugar correlate with metabolic issues including obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Soda drinkers are real life examples.
We’ve gone to great lengths to create low calorie Punch’d Gummies with less sugar than other personal energy products on the market. Candy gummy bears are made with high fructose corn syrup, artificial coloring and flavoring and have 34g carbs and 22g refined sugar. Energy drinks and sodas have ingredients and chemicals in them that we can’t pronounce and up to 55g of refined sugar in every can or bottle.
Punch’d Gummies use real organic cane sugar, as opposed to synthetic, refined or fakey lab-made sugars. Cane sugar helps make our gummies consistency soft and springy.
The recommended dietary amount of added sugar per day is 25 grams (women) – 36 grams (men) grams per the American Heart Association. The FDA rounds up to 50 grams per day. 50 grams of sugar per day is more than 12 teaspoons - Yuck!
There are a lot of “healthy” foods that have a high amount of sugar. Popular greek yogurts have 15 – 20 grams of sugar in them. Cranberries and Cranberry juice add 30 grams of sugar per serving. When food products claim sugar-free, that’s the signal that they are using artificial sweeteners and other unhealthy additives.
Stop spiking those sugars. It’s the worse things we can do to ourselves. Those fancy coffees and energy drinks exceed the daily recommendation in one cup or can. The short-term feeling can be fun, but the long-term effects are awful on our bodies and organs.
The glycemic index of foods is how sugar reacts in our bloodstream. You want to consume low glycemic foods, Punch’d Gummies are very low glycemic. No sugar spikes. That’s one of the reasons so many people love Punch’d.
Reduce your sugar intake. Change your caffeine routine. Try Punch’d Gummies before or after a workout or other activity. Try them with a sparkling water, or coconut water. Try them in a car, on a train or in a bar. Wherever you try them, let us know how you felt when you personalized your power and took control of your energy and reduced your daily sugars.
