I don’t leave home without Rush
“Like most, I lead a very busy life and I am always looking for ways to utilize my time most wisely and productively. I had never had an energy drink before I discovered RUSH. I had already committed to a healthy lifestyle and have never been a fan of chemical induced products so, it wasn’t that I was even looking for an energy drink.
However, before I discovered RUSH, I would typically begin a workout already exhausted and would just wait patiently for those endorphins to kick in and utilize my ‘self-talk’ to get through a long run or workout!
Now that I drink RUSH before every workout, it has totally changed my energy level before, during and after a workout. Not only does it have an amazing flavor, it is easy on my stomach, there are no jitters or heart racing and I have increased my pace and my strength at a greater level than I’ve ever been able to do in the past. I’m 53 and feel better than I have in 20 years!
RUSH is now a ‘staple item’ in my workout bag. I keep it in my locker at the gym, I keep a few packets in my car, and I keep a few packets in my purse… I don’t leave home without it!” ~Charlotte H.
I will always be a drinker of Rush! VIDEO
Give Your Workout a Rush
The Spanish study, published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, found that trained athletes who took in caffeine pre-exercise burned about 15% more calories for three hours, post-exercise, compared to those who ingested a placebo. The dose that triggered the effect was 4.5 mg of caffeine per kilogram of body weight. For 150-pound woman, that’s roughly 300 mg of caffeine, the amount in about 12 ounces of brewed coffee, a quantity you may already be sipping each morning.
If you’ve always thought of coffee as a vice—one you’re simply not willing to give up—you’ll be happy to know that it’s actually a secret superfood. And if you exercise, caffeine can offer even more functional benefits for your workouts.
The Skinny on Caffeine
“Caffeine is a stimulant that acts on the central nervous system, the heart, and possibly the ‘center’ that controls blood pressure,” all of which play a vital role in helping your mind and body push harder in a workout, says Heidi Skolnik, M.S., a sports nutritionist and owner of Nutrition Conditioning, Inc. “It can also increase the release of feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine, which effects pain receptors and mood” while you’re working out.
In other words, you’ll actually enjoy getting sweaty and it will feel easier when you’re powering through those last few reps. Plus, researchers found that when people caffeinated before a workout, they ate 72 fewer calories later in the day and had an easier time keeping cravings in check. Not a bad deal.
Here are six more reasons to enjoy it as part of an active lifestyle:
(1) Improved Circulation
Recent Japanese research studied the effects of coffee on circulation in people who were not regular coffee drinkers. Each participant drank a 5-ounce cup of either regular or decaffeinated coffee. Afterward, scientists gauged finger blood flow, a measure of how well the body’s smaller blood vessels work.
Those who downed “regular” (caffeinated) coffee experienced a 30% increase in blood flow over a 75-minute period, compared to those who drank the “unleaded” (decaf) version. Better circulation, better workout—your muscles need oxygen!
(2) Less Pain
Scientists at the University of Illinois found that consuming the caffeine equivalent of two to three cups of coffee one hour before a 30-minute bout of high-intensity exercise reduced perceived muscle pain. The conclusion: caffeine may help you push just a little bit harder during strength-training workouts, resulting in better improvements in muscle strength and/or endurance.
(3) Cognitive Performance
A study of 68 Navy Seal trainees—published in the journal Psychopharmacology—found that caffeine, in a dose-dependent manner, mitigated many adverse effects of exposure to multiple stressors. Caffeine (200 and 300 mg) significantly improved visual vigilance, choice reaction time, repeated acquisition, self reported fatigue and sleepiness, with the greatest effects on tests of vigilance, reaction time, and alertness. Marksmanship, a task that requires fine motor coordination and steadiness, was not affected by caffeine. The greatest effects of caffeine were present 1 h post-administration, but significant effects persisted for 8 h.
Even in the most adverse circumstances, moderate doses of caffeine can improve cognitive function, including vigilance, learning, memory, and mood state. When cognitive performance is critical and must be maintained during exposure to severe stress, administration of caffeine may provide a significant advantage. A dose of 200 mg appears to be optimal under such conditions.
(4) Burn More Fat
Caffeine stimulates the nervous system, which sends direct signals to the fat cells to tell them to break down fat. Another thing that caffeine does is to increase our blood levels of the hormone Epinephrine, which is also known as Adrenaline. Epinephrine travels through the blood, to the fat tissues and send signals to break down fats and release them into the blood.
This is how caffeine helps to mobilize fat from the fat tissues, making it available for use as free fatty acids in the blood.
(5) Muscle Preservation
In an animal study, sports scientists at Coventry University found that caffeine helped offset the loss of muscle strength that occurs with aging. The protective effects were seen in both the diaphragm, the primary muscle used for breathing, as well as skeletal muscle. The results indicate that in moderation, caffeine may help preserve overall fitness and reduce the risk of age-related injuries.
(6) More Muscle Fuel
A recent study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that a little caffeine post-exercise may also be beneficial, particularly for endurance athletes who perform day after day.
The research found that compared to consuming carbohydrates alone, a caffeine/carb combo resulted in a 66% increase in muscle glycogen four hours after intense, glycogen-depleting exercise. Glycogen, the form of carbohydrate that gets stockpiled in muscle, serves as a vital energy “piggy bank” during exercise, to power strength moves, and fuel endurance.
Moral of the story: caffeine makes your workout more fun and helps you push a little bit harder during your workouts and burning more fat. Cheers to that!

ActiveBlendz Rush White Paper
Energy metabolism is the general process by which living cells acquire and use the energy needed to stay alive, to grow, and to reproduce. As we age, we experience stress in many forms. This could be physical, emotional, mental, etc. Much of this stress diminishes our energy levels through oxidative damage that can weaken the cellular proficiencies in the body. To improve metabolic efficiencies that result in increased energy, Rush stimulates the central nervous system and helps to protect from this detrimental oxidative damage.
By formulating the beverage Rush, Javita met consumer demands for an effective energizing natural product that could provide an immediate feeling of energy but also help improve energy metabolism for long term positive benefits. RushTM accomplishes this through the combination of caffeine from green coffee beans and EGCG from green tea. Caffeine provides the initial stimulation to the circulatory system, resulting in improved performance and endurance for the immediate tasks at hand. EGCG, a powerful catechin from the leaves of green tea, works as an antioxidant, helping to regulate overall energy metabolism. This allows for existing energy reserves to be utilized more effectively. It also plays a beneficial role in protecting cells from future oxidative stressors that might be contributing to cellular fatigue.
This combination product is delivered in an easy to transport powdered drink mix that can be consumed anytime during the day when immediate energy is needed. Its energizing effects will be felt up to 6 hours after consumption due to the caffeine content, yet the internal cellular benefits from the EGCG will have more long term benefits for regulating energy metabolism.

I absolutely love giving my body an all natural, pre-workout boost that gets me through without feeling jittery, nauseous or guilty for drinking something with artificial ingredients or extra unwanted calories!
My workouts consist of weights, running and pilates/yoga type exercises depending on the day.
But whatever I’m up against, I rely on ActiveBlendz Rush to help energize and ActiveBlendz Flex to reduce inflammation!
In fact this last weekend, I competed in an 8.7 mile, 26 obstacle Spartan race and an hour before start time, I added a Rush to my 40 oz water bottle. I was sooo happy I did!! It was a brutal venue, but thankfully I got started off right and with a great little energy boost!!
I am one happy-40 year old who relies on these products to help me reach my health & fitness goals! I wouldn’t change a thing!” ~Chelsea H.
I love the joint support and energy Rush gives me
I’ve always had joint/knee issues my adult life, from an active adolescence playing sports. I’ve taken many supplements, some helped, some didn’t, but they were always the kind you HAD to take every day to keep helping. Flex is different. It helps me so quickly, and so well, that I only really need to drink it during a workout, and sometimes after. When I started drinking it about 8 months ago, I noticed how fast I felt relief from the ache in my knees, so I started taking it while working out, figuring it might prevent the aches in the first place. I was right! I mix Flex with Rush, so I get a one-two punch of joint support with energy. I love it!” ~Vanessa C.
Flex has improved my husband’s quality of life
“My hubby, Grant Seeger, has MAJOR back issues (extruded discs, fragments sitting on nerves, & degenerative disc disease!
“FLEX” has improved his quality of life BIG TIME!!!
WAY less pain, no more severe night time leg cramps, increased mobility, less stiffness.
Not to mention E + Mind has taken his workouts, energy, & business focus to an entirely new level!!! GO GRANT!!!”
Flex allows me to recover faster
“I have a daily workout at 6:30 AM. The first thing I do as I wake up is drink Rush with a 10 oz water bottle. This gives me a great kick start to my morning and adds just enough energy to maximize my workouts.
Our CrossFit workouts are high intensity and require us to keep track of certain reps and times.
I’ve noticed that Rush helps my mental concentration on remembering these numbers.
After my workout I immediately drink another 10 oz bottle with Flex. I have always had issues with my knees and joints hurting before Flex. Since I have been using Flex, there has been a dramatic decrease in pain and inflammation on my joints. Flex allows me to recover faster and continue on my day without discomfort.” ~Gilbert L
