Caffeine – A natural stimulant; caffeine capsules can be preferable to many of the alternatives, such as energy drinks, which are often crammed full of sugar. Many people enjoy a cup of tea or coffee to give them a boost from time to time and increase alertness; it can help you to feel less tired and more awake during the days when focus and motivation is required. People can also get great benefits from caffeine in helping them to maintain their fitness regime during lockdown. We are all aware of the great rewards to mental health as well as the physical benefits that regular exercise can bring. Caffeine can be used to assist concentration, boost stamina and increase enjoyment from exercise. It is however important to remember to follow dosage guidelines carefully and be wary if you suffer from any existing conditions, or already rely heavily on caffeinated hot drinks, to avoid sleep issues avoid taking too late in the day.
Ashwagandha - Commonly referred to as Indian Ginseng, Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that has been widely recognised since ancient times. It has traditionally been used for its rejuvenating and restorative benefits. It is said to help boost the immune system as well as reducing stress and fatigue. By modulating the body's cortisol levels and the response to stress and changing environments, it helps the body to maintain its fine balance in order to cope with external and internal stresses we may face, particularly during these challenging times. Derived only from the roots of the plant, using a unique extraction process KSM-66® Ashwaghanda is the highest concentration full spectrum extract on the market.
Montmorency Cherry – Never has sleep been more important - Achieving the recommended 7 hours a night can keep our bodies working optimally and reduce the impact of the extra stress we may be feeling right now. Our bodies repair and recover during sleep, so the more uninterrupted hours you can get the better you will feel. Tart Montmorency cherries are rich in antioxidants and are also a known source of melatonin; a substance naturally produced in the body by the pineal gland helping to regulate the sleep-wake cycle.
NADH - NADH (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide + Hydrogen) is a coenzyme of Vitamin B3 (Niacin) in its reduced form. It occurs naturally in the body and plays a part in the metabolism and cellular respiration processes that generate energy. The brain uses so much of the energy our bodies produce, so symptoms of any energy deficiency we experience are likely to be first realised in the brain, with symptoms such as lack of concentration and mental fog. People therefore use NADH to help with mental clarity, alertness, concentration and memory.
CO-Enzyme Q10 - Co Enzyme Q10 is vital in energy production processes. CoQ10 is stored in mitochondria which is the part of the cell where energy is produced. It is used in processes during the synthesis of ATP. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the basic form of cellular energy, and is needed by cells to function efficiently and stay healthy, which is why CO Enzyme Q10 is so essential.
As an antioxidant CoQ10 helps to protect cells against damage from free radicals, and also plays significant roles in supporting and boosting the functioning of the immune system because of the high energy needs of the cells involved.
Vitamin B Complex - The busier and more active you are the more B Vitamins you will need, and as B vitamins are water soluble they need to be replenished through the diet on a daily basis. They are needed for numerous processes within the body, and are important in helping to support the immune system, as well as in helping to reduce tiredness and fatigue. Our Vitamin B complex tablets provide you with all of the B Vitamins needed in maintaining the release of energy from food - they help to convert the food we eat into glucose which gives you energy – much needed during these testing times.
