Are you struggling with brain fog (or “Mom Brain”) and need more energy to keep up with your little one?
Confession: coffee is no longer my love affair. I have officially found the BEST thing for lasting energy and clear thoughts, and bonus –> it helps my mood and is HEALTHY.

Energy as a mom? Whaaaat? NO SUCH THING!
I know what you’re thinking, but yes…you really can have more energy (that actually lasts) and beat brain fog, even as a super busy and overwhelmed Mom! 🙂
I know because I have personally found the best thing for energy and getting rid of mom brain. And no, it’s not more coffee. Surprise, I know!
For years I have struggled with feeling awake or alert, and overall I just felt kind of “blah”. Then after I had my son I was tired all the time, which I figured was just part of being a Mom.
Fast forward almost 11 months and not much got better in terms of having energy or ever feeling fully awake. I figured I’d just solve the problem with more coffee, but that didn’t help. It probably made it worse, honestly.
So long story short, I was struggling to be a mom to a very mobile baby, stay on top of normal house cleaning and cooking, help my significant other build his business, run this blog, start another business, and all while being perpetually tired and feeling like my brain worked only 30% of the time.
One day as I sat on my floor watching my son play and thinking about everything that needed done and all these goals and dreams that I wanted to chase, I decided something very important; It wasn’t working anymore.
My life was (and still is) great, but I knew that if I wanted to accomplish these huge goals and be the best person, mom, and partner that I could be, I had to switch something up.
So I did! And I am so thrilled with the results that I want to tell every mom out there that there really is a healthy way to get sustainable energy, stable moods, and get rid of brain fog.
At least, that’s what it did for me.

The Best Thing for Energy and Getting Rid of Brain Fog Is…
Stop rolling your eyes, by the way. 😉
By superfoods, I don’t mean binging on blueberries, salmon, or kale (though I won’t stop you if you do). I mean a specific superfood mix by a specific brand.
Your Super is a dream come true if you want,
- a healthy alternative to energy drinks or coffee,
- something that actually makes you feel good,
- helps with hormones and moods,
- won’t give you the jitters or crashes,
- extremely versatile,
- minimal and real ingredients that are also USDA organic,
- want to support a business that gives back and cares about their customers and is transparent in their company,
- and if you want all of that at a really good price.
Those are the things that I personally not only wanted, but needed.
A Bit About The Company and Founders of Your Super
You may or may not have heard of this company before, but if you have it’s likely you stumbled upon their videos or ads in Facebook like I did. Honestly I was way too intrigued (and let’s face it: desperate) to learn more about not just the brand, but the founders.
If it just so happens to be that this is the first time you’re hearing of the brand, here’s the gist: Health coach Kristel and athlete Michael formed YourSuper after Michael was diagnosed with cancer at 24 years old. They both knew how important the right diet is for health, so being health-conscious already, Kristel decided to kick it up a notch and create super nutrient-dense superfood powders in the hopes of helping Michael through his cancer journey. Not only did the mixes give him more energy and make him happier overall, but they also cleared Kristel’s eczema and allergies! Cool, right?
Fast forward a bit and they decided to educate and inspire others to live a healthier life one scoop of superfood mix at a time. They want to make it easy to get your needed dose of greens and all the good stuff that comes with plants, all while being fully transparent about the process and giving back to those in need. And they totally knocked it out of the park!
From the founders themselves;

Benefits of Your Super Mixes
Specific benefits depend on each mix, but the majority of the benefits include:
- More energy
- Better mood
- Improved skin and hair
- Better focus and brain power
- Increased immunity
- Better sleep
- Easy way to get needed greens and plant intake!
all while having 6 or less ingredients! And no sweeteners or fillers whatsoever.
Things You May Not Like About Your Super Powders
Every good thing also has cons. And one of the cons about the YourSuper mixes is the taste. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever tasted, but it’s also not the best.
Out of the three mixes that I’ve tried so far, they all have one thing in common: they taste earthy. Which should be wonderful news to you because it just proves how real the ingredients actually are. But it also proves that the old cliche is true: if it’s healthy, it probably doesn’t taste good.
But then again, I did survive on black coffee in a time of my life where I was slowly weaning myself from dairy and sugar and all things tasty. If I can survive black coffee, I can survive anything! I know you can, too. 😉
Another thing that you may not totally love is the texture. It doesn’t always mix up the best and can leave your drink rather grainy (which is easily solved with their blender bottle that I’m obsessed with).
No worries, though because the benefits are MORE than worth the taste! (Again, it’s not horrible. If you like green tea, you probably won’t mind the Power Matcha. Also, the Forever Beautiful and Energy Bomb are both next to tasteless.)
But that’s the great thing about these mixes — you don’t have to even use them in drinks! You can mix them with dressings or smoothies or bake with them. You get the benefits either way.
My Honest Review of Your Super
Before I dive into my review, I just want to mention that I never recommend products or include affiliate links to products that I don’t personally use or love, or otherwise wouldn’t at least be willing to try myself. I have no time to bull-crap you, and I’ll be honest: I FREAKING LOVE YOURSUPER MIXES! Now that we got that out of the way, let’s continue…
What Your Super Mixes Do For Me
Is change my life too dramatic?
Seriously, I feel like they did change my life, though! I used to wake up around 7:00 or 8:00 AM, sip my first cup of coffee for an hour, and then pour another one, and not feel “awake” until 1:00 PM or later. And even then, I never felt like my brain was completely “on” and I had horrible focus.
It was either get stuff done and get the jitters from consuming 8 or 10 cups of coffee, or feeling too tired and brain dead to do anything. (I still love coffee, though. Old habits die hard, my friend.)
Not only that, but part of my love of coffee is the creamer. Of course that’s not good for the wallet or my health! So I slowly cut it out, and realized that no matter how much almond milk or cane sugar I used, it just wasn’t the same or as enjoyable. If it took me all day to drink a couple of cups of coffee, what’s the point?
This is what Your Super does for me…
- –> It makes me more energetic!
- –> Increases my focus and brain power (I FINALLY feel alert and awake even in the morning, and I am NOT a morning person! Hence the name Mommy Hates Mornings)
- –> Evens out my hormones and moods
- –> Improves my skin (MAJOR win!)
- –> Makes me feel good and balanced
- –> Took away my afternoon slumps
- –> Improved my sleep
- –> All without jitters or caffeine crashes
I LOVE them!!!
*Update as of 10/12/2019
I am now even more convinced that these mixes are amazing for so much more than giving you natural and stable energy. The last couple of weeks I forgot (or maybe just got lazy?) to drink the mixes, and started to rely on coffee again. Long story short, my skin started to look rough again and my mood swings (yep, I fully admit to having mood swings, ladies!) were ridiculous! Then it hit me… I was at my best emotionally, physically, and mentally when I drank my morning and afternoon Your Super mixes every day. So, being totally ready to rock my crazy to-do list and get things done in my life AND my business, I hurried my butt in the kitchen and shook up some of these magical powders in some orange juice inside my blender bottle and guess what! I had more mental focus that night, slept better, and woke up easier and NOT groggy.
Moral of the story? If you give the Your Super mixes a try, be consistent! I promise you (probably…because I can’t actually guarantee anything) will see a difference!
How I Personally Use Them
These mixes are so versatile and can be used in countless ways (more on that below) but I am a pretty straight forward gal and when I find something that works for me, I tend to stick with it.
With that being said, my morning routine is to fill my blender bottle with about 4 ounces of orange juice and 4 ounces of cold water, and then I add in 1-2 teaspoons of the Power Matcha and Energy Bomb. Sometimes I throw in a teaspoon of the Forever Beautiful, too.
I also use them in smoothies when I remember to make them!
Someday I’ll be more adventurous and try it in some dressings or use the recipes on the Your Super blog. But for now, simplicity is my friend. 🙂
How You Can Use The Products
You can use the mixes however you want, but here are some ways to get started with them!
- Mix them with water, juice, or other beverage
- Blend them into your smoothies
- Bake with them
- Matcha Latte
- Sprinkle them over/in your food
- Mix in with dressings
- In healthy shots
The Your Super blog has awesome and easy recipes that usually require just a few ingredients and a few minutes to make! They really are easy to incorporate into your daily life.
