Nat­u­rally en­er­giz­ing brews with­out the jit­ters

Get a jolt with­out the jit­ters. That’s the prom­ise be­hind the lat­est power brews, which con­tain nat­u­ral pick-me-ups like red reishi, ash­wa­gandha, maca pow­der, roasted chicory, or B vi­ta­mins—but no ac­tual caf­feine. These drinks en­er­gize you, “but they’re less likely to make you feel shaky or keep you up at night,” says Meg Jor­dan, Ph.D., the chair of in­te­gra­tive health stud­ies at the Cal­i­for­nia In­sti­tute of In­te­gral Stud­ies. Look for caf­feine-free lat­tes on café menus, or mix your own us­ing El­e­ment Herbal Cof­fee, which is made with roasted chicory and ash­wa­gandha ($12, herbalele­ment.com).

MID­DLE GROUNDS Al­ter­na­tive drinks, like Four Sig­matic’s Mush­room Cof­fee Mix (from $15, us.four­sig­matic.com), have half as much caf­feine as a cup of java.
