Chances are, if a friend hasn’t talked to you about Happy Juice yet, somebody will soon. And for good reason. Happy Juice just might be the best-tasting, fastest-acting mental wellness supplement there is. But what is Happy Juice?
Happy Juice is Amare’s signature supplement. To be more accurate, it’s Amare’s signature supplement trio, as it’s actually a combination of three different but synergistic supplements.
It’s become so popular that many people think it’s the only thing Amare offers. But that’s not the case. In fact, there are many other powerful supplements for your needs beyond mental sharpness, clarity, focus, and calmness.
In this article, though, we’ll focus on Happy Juice: who it’s for, why it works, and how you can get started with experiencing more happiness right away.
What is Happy Juice?
Happy Juice is a combination of three different Amare supplements, each developed independently of one another. The trademarked name “Happy Juice” actually came from Amare customers and brand partners. They started combining the three supplements into a single drink, and noticed how quickly they started feeling happier. As it gained popularity, Amare created the Happy Juice Pack, where you can get each of them in a discounted bundle.
The three supplements that make up Happy Juice include:
- Amare EDGE
Each supplement is incredible on its own, but when used together, they pack a more powerful, synergistic punch. We’ll get into the science behind each supplement below.
A Note About Branded or Trademarked Ingredients
You’ll notice Amare’s extensive use of branded or trademarked ingredients. This is a key feature of their formulas. Here’s why the branded ingredients add so much value to Amare supplements:
- Quality Assurance: Branded ingredients often come with a higher level of quality assurance. Manufacturers of branded ingredients usually invest in clinical studies and quality control processes to ensure their product is effective and safe. This means that when you choose a supplement with a branded ingredient, you’re likely getting a product that’s been thoroughly tested and proven.
- Consistency: With branded ingredients, there’s a higher likelihood of consistency in the product. These ingredients are typically produced using standardized processes, ensuring that each batch has the same potency and purity. This consistency can be crucial for achieving the desired health benefits.
- Research and Development: Branded ingredients are often the result of extensive research and development. The investment in R&D not only ensures a high-quality product but also often means that the ingredient is backed by scientific research demonstrating its efficacy. And they’re often created in a way that offers superior bioavailability, meaning more of that ingredient gets into your body, leading to a positive physiological change.
- Traceability and Transparency: Manufacturers of branded ingredients usually provide greater transparency about the source and production of their ingredients. This can be particularly important for those concerned about where their supplements come from and how they are made.
- Efficacy: When a supplement brand uses trademarked ingredients in their formulas, they agree to use a minimum, efficacious dose. The ingredient supplier wouldn’t want companies using their ingredients to look good on the label and end up delivering no benefit. So, unlike when using generic ingredients, you know that you’re getting enough of that ingredient to make a significant difference in your health and fitness.
That’s not to say all generic ingredients are inferior. But it is to say that when a supplement uses branded ingredients, it’s likely to be the best of its kind available. Again, that’s a big reason why I got so excited about Amare supplements when I first looked into them.
By using Energy+, you can ditch the gas station energy drinks, which jack you up for a little while and leave you more fatigued than you were before you drank it shortly thereafter.
Energy+ gives you three types of energy:
- Physical energy
- Mental energy
- Mental awareness
It also comes in two slightly different formulas, with one containing 55 mg of caffeine and the other being caffeine-free.
Of the three supplements in Happy Juice, you’ll feel the effects of Energy+ the fastest. I, as have many others who’ve ordered Happy Juice through out, noticed a difference in mental clarity and energy within about a half hour of using it the first time. That’s been the case almost every day since then.
Energy+ Dragon Fruit (caffeine-free)
The caffeine-free version of Energy+ contains chicory root inulin, glycine, Pomegranate fruit extract, Rooibos Tea leaf, Asian Apple fruit extract, French Grape seed extract, and New Zealand Pine bark extract. Here’s the science behind each ingredient.
Chicory root inulin: Chicory root inulin, a type of dietary fiber, aids in weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness, reducing overall food intake.1Guess, N. D., Dornhorst, A., Oliver, N., & Bell, J. D. (2015). A randomized controlled trial: The effect of inulin on weight management and ectopic fat in subjects with prediabetes.

For those into fitness, a balanced gut microbiome, maintained by this probiotic, is key for optimal recovery and energy use during workouts.
Bimuno® (Galacto-Oligo-Saccharides): Bimuno®, a prebiotic supplement containing Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS), nurtures beneficial bacteria in the digestive system, essential for proper digestion and overall well-being.54Vulevic, J., Juric, A., Tzortzis, G., & Gibson, G. R. (2015). A mixture of trans-Galacto-Oligosaccharides reduces markers of metabolic syndrome and modulates the fecal microbiota and immune function of overweight adults. Journal of Nutrition, 145(3), 324-331. It’s especially helpful for feeding Bifidobacteria strains. Better gut health can lead to enhanced nutrient absorption and a stronger immune system, pivotal for maintaining physical health. Also, a healthy gut microbiome, supported by GOS, is linked to reduced stress and improved mood.55Schmidt, K., Cowen, P. J., Harmer, C. J., Tzortzis, G., Errington, S., & Burnet, P. W. J. (2015). Prebiotic intake reduces the waking cortisol response and alters emotional bias in healthy volunteers. Psychopharmacology, 232(10), 1793-1801. Additionally, Bimuno® may help manage weight by promoting satiety and reducing overeating.56Parnell, J. A., & Reimer, R. A. (2012). Prebiotic fibres dose-dependently increase satiety hormones and alter Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes in lean and obese JCR:LA-cp rats. British Journal of Nutrition, 107(4), 601-613.
SunFiber® (Galactomannan fiber): SunFiber, made from Galactomannan fiber, is a remarkable supplement feeding good gut bacteria. When Sunfiber reaches the large intestine, the beneficial bacteria there start to ferment it. This fermentation process is crucial because it allows these bacteria to thrive and multiply. The fermentation of Sunfiber by gut bacteria produces short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), like butyrate, acetate, and propionate.

Who would benefit from Happy Juice?
I suppose a better question to ask would be, “Who wouldn’t benefit from Happy Juice?” Clearly, this supplement trio significantly impacts mental wellness, from improving mental clarity, focus, and energy, to enhancing motivation and metabolism, to decreasing tension, irritability, stress, and anxious feelings. Who wouldn’t want that? Even if someone’s life is good and stress is minimal, most of us would love the mental edge Happy Juice provides. That’s why almost everyone I talk to (other than hardcore skeptics) says, “show me how to get some Happy Juice.”
If you’re thinking the same thing, tap here to get your Happy Juice.
Maybe another way of looking at it is, “Who would benefit the most?” In that case, those who are under significant stress, feel foggy-headed, experience the cognitive effects of aging, need more mental horsepower to remain productive during the day and handle the busyness that occurs after work, need to perform better in school, or who want a physical edge to stay in peak condition.
