Last week my niece stayed with me for a couple of days for some work related stuff. Every time I saw her, she said how “tired” she was – this included first thing in the morning.
I said to her “you’re only 20 years old, why are you always so tired?!!”
She replied and said “I know… I’m just so stressed all the time with work, school and life”.
I didn’t say anything, but I was thinking “well, it’s only going to get worse as you get older because you’ll have a lot more responsibilities later on in life”. And then I was thinking how most people’s complaints, regardless of their age or sex, is being fatigued and tired and how most of the cause is due to “being stressed”.
And as the saying goes, “stress kills”… And it really does because it causes lots of negative hormonal changes in your body.
So today I’m going to reveal the 4 most powerful and clinically proven ingredients that will help
- increase your energy
- improve your memory and focus
- while reducing your stress at the same time.
The reason stress is bad is because it disrupts multiple biochemical pathways:
- including cortisol production (a primary stress hormone)
- adrenal production (a primary cause of fatigue)
- pro-inflammatory enzyme production (a primary cause of disease)
- and neurotransmitter production (a primary cause of brain aging).1-3
Sadly, an estimated 80%–90% of visits to primary care physicians are now related to the effects of stress.4
You may not be able to stop stress, but for longevity and health reasons, you need to give your body specific nutrients to help manage and reduce “stress side-effects”.
This way you’ll have more energy, improve your mind and memory, sleep better and look younger!
So here are the 4 clinically proven ingredients:
1- Bacopa extract (50% bacopa glycosides)
It is traditionally used to help support memory and concentration while easing stress and tension. It is thought to help nourish neurons while restoring depleted synaptic activity and is one of the most revered herbs for brain health
2- Sensoril® Ashwagandha extract
It counters some of the oxidative damage generated by nervous tension and stress.5 Clinical trials have shown a 26% reducing of the stress hormone, cortisol …. while also improving blood sugar levels and lipid profiles.6
Studies have also shown an improvement in energy, sleep, healthy outlook and well-being, as well as diminished fatigue.7
3- Sharp-PS® Green Phosphatidylserine (Soy Free)
It is required for normal cellular structure and function. Brain tissues are especially rich in phosphatidylserine (PS), but aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body.
Research has shown that in addition to improving neural function, PS enhances energy metabolism in all cells, memory, concentration, learning and word choice.8,9
Another major benefit to using PS is that it significantly modulates cortisol levels, resulting in a more relaxed state.
4- N-Acetyl Tyrosine
It is an amino acid that can be converted in the brain and in the adrenal glands to dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (adrenaline) hormones that are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs.
By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels will be improved.
Also, the N-Acetyl version of Tyrosine is more stable and soluble, thus resulting in greater bioavailability and effectiveness.
… so these are the 4 best ingredients for reducing your stress hormones, resulting in higher energy levels.
Now, there are a few other very important, clinically proven and safe ingredients that will dramatically increase full-body energy levels — both your body AND brain. Here’s my favorite formula that contains all of them…
