SO, WHY SWITCH ON?
SO, WHY SWITCH ON?
Sharpened focus, better memory, and improved mood
Greater motivation and energy, with no midday crash
Increased capacity to cope with stress and poor sleep
Reduced appetite and accelerated fat burning
Better workout performance and faster recovery from exercise
FEEL AND PERFORM BETTER, EVEN IF YOU’RE STRESSED AND SHORT ON SLEEP…
You want to be the best version of yourself each day. At work, you want to be so good that people can’t ignore you. But you also want to feel great in general – energetic, content, mindful – and you value your wellbeing.
But sometimes life feels overwhelming as work deadlines loom, relationships test you and your schedule goes out the window after a major life event throws yet another spanner in the works.
REPLACE LIFE HACKS WITH A SMARTER WAY TO START THE DAY
Your stress level rises, and as this happens your sleep, health and appearance start to deteriorate. You struggle to find the right words and keep forgetting people’s names.
You try different coping strategies – cold showers, meditation, a new morning routine, napping. Although you know they’re not good for you in the long term, you’ve even dabbled with “smart drugs”. These hacks haven’t quite done the job.
HERE’S SOME VERY GOOD NEWS FOR YOUR MIND AND BODY…
There are foods and nutrients that can both enhance how you feel and function when you’re under the cosh and support your long-term health..
You could get these ingredients via supplements, but you’d have to pop many types of pills, which would be an expensive faff. Fortunately, there’s a much more practical alternative.
INTRODUCING SWITCH ON
Switch On is a delicious dark chocolate drink that combines science-backed doses of the best ingredients to help you be your best, both mentally and physically… even when you’re burning the candle at both ends.
Switch On was specifically designed to counter the negative effects of poor sleep, but it will give you a boost even if you sleep like a baby.

How to switch on
Enjoy Switch On hot or cold, with 200 ml water or milk. One of our favourite options is to throw it in a blender with a banana – delicious!
For best results, drink Switch On 1 hour before beginning a mentally or physically demanding activity. At Resilient HQ, we generally use it at the start of a long day of work.
WE VALUE TRANSPARENCY
If you’re like us, you’ve felt disillusioned by nutrition and supplement companies who use the term ‘proprietary blend’ to mask the fact that there isn’t nearly enough of the active ingredients to produce the desired effects.
We don’t do this, and the proof is on the product label.
‘CLEAN’ LABEL and NO NASTIES
- Only 66 calories per serving
- High fibre (7.3 g per serving)
- Gluten free
- No added sugar
Great product – improves my concentration levels and helps me focus consistently throughout the day. I don’t get any afternoon crashes or low spots either, and my sleep at night is insanely good! Would definitely recommend!
Jay Worthy, father, adventurer, podcaster, VP at Brunswick
Simple, quick, and tasty - what more could you want! Switch On’s chocolatey energy was the perfect way to wake up before a hard day’s work on Everest! It was so yummy and such a great healthy energy source.
Adri Brownlee, mountaineer
Used this after a big day and 3 hours sleep in the mountains. Went into a briefing and was surprised at how normal I felt. Managing to recall things from previous weeks that really I shouldn't have. Took the boss by surprise. After a further 11+ hours climbing and sleeping on the hard mud floor, with a dry bag as a pillow, still felt good enough to crack on until late the following evening.
Great performance booster
Chocolatey goodness for mind, movement and mouth!!!
Calm focused energy
Great tasting product which noticeably improved both focus and alertness
Great tasting drink, and really helped boost my mental performance after a challenging night’s sleep.
