Today we’re talking all about Taka, a nutrient packed energizing powdered vitamin drink from Globallee. This post isn’t sponsored but may contain affiliate links.
A few months after Lincoln was born (six years ago) I was complaining to my mom about post partum headaches I couldn’t seem to get rid of. It didn’t matter how much water I drank or how often I tried to sleep while the baby slept. She finally talked me into trying the powdered vitamin drink shed’ been taking for years and after a few days, I could feel a huge difference. I stuck with it, especially since it meant I could stop taking those huge prenatals I was still trying to power through while nursing/pumping.
Fast forward 12 months when I was pregnant again, exhausted, and very nauseas. I couldn’t keep down a prenatal and was THRILLED to find out my powdered vitamin drink had basically everything I needed except for the folic acid. Instead of trying to swallow horse pills, I cooked broccoli (or ate fortified cereal) and kept drinking my powdered vitamin.
I switched my formula six months ago to Globallee’s Taka and IT IS AWESOME. It gives me a a consistent stream of energy for a few hours after drinking it without a caffeine buzz and without a caffeine crash.
Plus, it tastes delicious. I cannot recommend it enough.
Taka is a powdered energizing vitamin drink. It is marketed as an all natural energy drink that combines the delicious and naturally occurring sources of energy. From flowers in Hawaii to roots in rural India, the formulators identified the otp ingredients that produce clean, natural energy. Taka is the all-encompassing solution to higher energy levels, improved gut health, and more mental clarity.
A few key ingredients:
- Turmeric Root
- Aloe Vera
- Ionic Minerals
Why do I take Taka?
I prefer to drink my daily vitamin rather than swallow a pill and Taka is packed with nutrients. It is marketed as a cleaner source of energy (which it is) but I initially made the switch because it had more nutrients than the other powdered prenatal I was taking (no, I’m not pregnant – prenatals are just great for your health, skin, nails, etc).
I love the way I feel drinking Taka and I love the way it tastes. It makes a huge difference in my energy levels and productivity. It can turn an afternoon of dragging with my kids into a living room dance party while we fold laundry. It can turn a morning of slowly wading through emails into powering through the more challenging tasks.
Does Taka have sugar in it?
Taka has lots of natural flavors and a natural sweetener called Stevia ( a plant grown in many parts of the world that contains part of the leaf that are naturally sweet). No sugar added to Taka (although I”m not sure you’ll believe me when you taste it).
Does Taka contain caffeine?
Taka does not contain caffeine anhydrous, an artificial stimulant found in many energy drinks. Taka gets its main energy boost from the Brazilian Guarana berry which contains the natural stimulant known as Guaranine. Unlike an energy drink, Guaranine gives you lower levels of more sustained energy without the crash. From what I have looked at, one stick of Taka has about as much caffeine equivalent as 1/4 a cup of coffee.
Do you have to order Taka on subscription?
Nope, you can shop as a retail customer but you don’t get the benefit of the member discount. There is no penalty for cancelling so I always recommend signing up as a member (that’s what I did when I started, too).
How does the website work? How do I order
I think the website is a little confusing because they’re trying to get you to sign up for a monthly subscription. It is worth signing up even if you just cancel after your fist shipment so you get the member discount. Here’s how to order:
- Click here to get to the Globallee homepage (that is my affiliate link, like with almost anything on this site/ most sites on the internet, if you sign up using that link I make a small commission at no additional expense to you)
- scroll down to “Taka” and click “Learn More”
- Click on “Become a Preferred Customer” (you can also click on Shop Retail and then select the 1 box of Taka or the 4 box pack but it is more expensive)
- Select your country
- Fill in your account info
- Enter your shipping info
- Select your product (click the “build your own” option and scroll down and add the Taka you want. I recommend the 4 box of hibiscus and blueberry lemonade mix)
What I order each month:
- Taka (Mixed 4 pack of Blueberry Lemonade and Hibiscus)
- TakaGlo (1 canister of either the Dragonfruit or the Pina Colada)
I drink 1-2 Taka per day and Ben drinks 1 daily so this covers us for the month unless we have company staying with us (they always end up loving + drinking it, too).
What other products does Globallee have?
There are tons of other products Globallee makes that are probably awesome but I have only ordered and tried Taka and TakaGlo (both of which I still order each month).
