FAQs: Good Questions About GOOD IDEA

What Makes GOOD IDEA Stand Out From the Rest?

GOOD IDEA is not your average sparkling water. We've combined five essential amino acids and chromium, an essential mineral needed for metabolism, to create our patented formula. But what exactly does that mean for you?

Well, when you drink GOOD IDEA before and during your meal, it's like giving your body a heads-up to reduce blood sugar spikes. Our amino acids help to prepare your body for the food that's coming, while chromium increases your insulin sensitivity.* That means less insulin is needed to get energy from your food into your cells.

And voila, a more balanced blood sugar through a lower and slower glucose rise after eating!

And we aren't just blowing bubbles here. Our claims are backed by research with real people, not just lab rats.

*Insulin is a hormone that transports energy, in the form of glucose, into the cells, where it is used as fuel. Research has shown a connection between chronically elevated insulin levels and metabolic conditions.

What Ingredients Go Into GOOD IDEA?

Is GOOD IDEA a Carbonated Water?

At the heart of GOOD IDEA drink ingredients is a pure and straightforward ingredient - filtered, reverse osmosis water that has been lightly carbonated. This perfect balance of bubbles gives our drink a refreshing taste that will leave you feeling satisfied.

What 5 Amino Acids Are In GOOD IDEA?

Let's take a look at amino acids. Amino acids are essential for so many things, such as forming collagen, elastin, and even tooth enamel. And guess what? GOOD IDEA contains a blend of five of the best ones: L-leucine, L-threonine, L-lysine monohydrochloride, L-isoleucine, and L-valine.

These five amino acids work together to give you a glucose-reducing effect. They're like a dream team for your metabolism - helping slow down gastric emptying and priming your body for all the goodness that comes with each sip of GOOD IDEA.

But don't just take our word for it, let's break it down.

First, let's talk about three amino acids that are total game-changers: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids are part of the BCAA squad (branched-chain amino acids) and have some serious superpowers. Not only do these BCAAs have a major impact on glucose metabolism, glycogen synthesis, and insulin sensitivity - they also play a key role in hormone production and protein synthesis.

Threonine is also an absolute rockstar when it comes to maintaining protein balance in your body. But that's not all - threonine also helps form collagen, elastin, and even tooth enamel. Plus, Threonine is both glucogenic and ketogenic, meaning that it can be converted into glucose or degraded directly into acetyl-CoA

Threonine is commonly found in cheeses, meats, fish, and poultry so individuals on vegan and vegetarian diets are susceptible to experiencing low levels of threonine.

Last, but not least... we have lysine. Not only is lysine crucial for collagen and cartilage synthesis, but it also helps convert fatty acids into energy and keeps that cholesterol in check.

What Is Chromium Picolinate?

Let’s talk about a dietary mineral called chromium picolinate. Did you know up to 90% of Americans aren't getting enough of this crucial nutrient in their daily diet? Our bodies can't produce chromium on their own, so we need to make sure we're getting enough through our food.

Not only does chromium help with insulin and cholesterol levels, but it can improve your postprandial glycemic control (that's just a fancy way of saying how your body handles sugar after a meal). And for one in five Americans with metabolic syndrome, improved insulin sensitivity and glucose control can reduce the likelihood of disease and improve overall longevity.

When combined with the five essential amino acids found in GOOD IDEA (L-Leucine, L-Threonine, L-Lysine Monohydrochloride, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine), chromium picolinate becomes a powerhouse.

Together, these ingredients have been shown to reduce post-meal blood sugar by an average of 25%. This reduction helps to stabilize energy levels, reduce cravings, and improve metabolic health

Why Is Zinc Important?

Zinc is a tiny trace mineral that is essential for so many important functions in our bodies - from boosting growth and development to keeping our immune system strong, healing wounds, and even creating DNA. Unfortunately, a large number of Americans are not getting enough zinc in their diets, putting them at risk for deficiencies.

By adding zinc to our diets, we can help reduce inflammation and hello to stronger immune health and speed of recovery. Adding zinc to our diets can help to reduce inflammation, improve immune health, and speed-up healing. It is recommended that adult females consume 8 mg/day and adult males consume 11 mg/day.

What Does Potassium Do

Not only does Potassium help our nerves and muscles do their thing, but it also helps us metabolize carbs, regulates our heartbeats, and keeps our kidneys in check.

Moreover, potassium is important for the management of proper blood pressure by helping to reduce high sodium levels. The recommended daily intake of potassium for healthy adults is between 3,500 and 4,700 mg.

Does GOOD IDEA Use Natural Flavors?

We use flavors straight from the Swedish forest, like Swedish sugar buster and sea berry, to give our drinks their incredible taste! But what exactly are natural flavors?

Well, let us spill the beans (or should we say berries?).

We start by emulsifying berries to extract their essence or flavor. This process removes the caloric content of the berries, leaving behind only their delicious taste. By using emulsified berries, we can ensure that our drinks are free from any added sugar or sweeteners.

Now you might be wondering, why go through all this trouble? Well, because we care about your health and well-being. We know you want to stay away from carbs and sugar, and so do we! That's why we've perfected our formula to give you a refreshing drink that tastes amazing without any of the stuff you don't want.
