Wake up and smell the antioxidants!(?!)

Note: this is a BzzReport. I am a member of the website, Bzzagent.com, which gives me free samples and coupons to create, well, Buzz about products. Today we are talking about the Green Mountain Coffee® Wellness Collection for BzzAgent.


Do you own a Keurig brewer? I do. It’s wonderful as it allows me to have many different types of coffee without having to make a whole pot and without having to worry about having several bags of coffee open (and quickly deteriorating in taste). One of the big producers of K-Cups is Green Mountain Coffee. Their coffee is spot on in taste. It’s neither too bitter, too bold, too weak, too light, it’s just right. So when I heard they were coming out with two new blends for their new Wellness Collection,” I was certainly intrigued.

The new blends (as seen above) are the Focus Blend and the Antioxidant Blend. At first I was a bit worried about how the coffees would taste with the addition of the vitamins and amino acids found in the blends. Don’t worry – they taste just the same. In fact, I couldn’t tell there was anything added to the coffee. But, as you will find out, the benefits are certainly there.

First was the Focus Blend. It contains 50 mg of L-Theanine, which I have discovered is an amino acid that helps relieve tension and improves your focus. I had one at the beginning of the work day and I did seem to have a bit more determination and focus for the rest of the day. And, as previously stated, the coffee tasted great, so it was not a problem getting it into my system. 

The second blend is the Antioxidant Blend. It contains the antioxidant vitamins C & E. Now, I am not saying that it helped prevent me from getting that nasty cold that everyone in the office had, but I was unaffected by that incident at least! That may have been coincidental but I did feel like it was a bit healthier drinking that blend.

You can pick them up at GreenMountainCoffee.com. I think it’s well worth it.

Have you tried it? Let me know in the comments.
