    Default pick-me-up?

    Take it with you whenever you go for a quick pick-me-up.

    What does it of pick-me-up?
    (sorry, I lost the rest of the writing for you in better understanding of the whole situation.)

    It's something that gives you a quick burst of energy. I think what you posted probably came from an advert for a drink or some food perhaps. There are drinks and foods which can give a fast energy boost, so it sounds to me like they are saying that you can take it everywhere you go and eat/drink it when you need to get some energy quickly.
