The proprietary ingredients in Optimum Energy are plant extracts called Adaptogens. These unique herbs were discovered in the 1960s by Russian Scientists to help increase the performance and resistance to disease of Olympic Athletes and Cosmonauts (Astronauts).
By 1984 Russian scientists had published in excess of 1,500 pharmacological and clinical studies on the efficacy of adaptogenic herbs. Later research carried out in Germany and Japan demonstrated similar findings to that of Russians. There is no doubt that adaptogens increase an organism’s adaptation to stress and have a normalizing influence on our physiology.
WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENS?
Adaptogens are plant extracts that come from plants that grow in one of the most stressful environments on the planet, upper Siberia. The four main adaptogenic plants (found in Optimum Energy) have to endure ninety degree heat in the summer and up to fifty below zero in the winter. To survive, the plants release compounds that work to keep them in a state of homeostasis (balance). The same compounds that help adaptogenic plants remain balanced through stressful conditions also help our bodies remain in a state of homeostasis.
HOW OPTIMUM ENERGY WORKS
Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, often referred to as the stress hormone. Cortisol plays a vital role in counteracting inflammatory responses in the immune system. When cortisol levels remain high (due to stress) many negative effects can happen: blood pressure rises and blood sugar levels increase as insulin is blocked from doing its job leading to unhealthy fat building up. Gastric acid production increases in the stomach. And bone formation is hindered.
The Adaptogens in the Optimum Energy formula reduce the damage caused by excess cortisol. They aid in providing more cortisol when needed, or recognize when cortisol is being overproduced and needs to be suppressed. This strengthens and preserves our energy, also preventing stress from causing illness and even premature aging. In essence, Optimum Energy gives you more energy when you need it and also more relaxation when rest is desired.
Energy is life. Optimum Energy restores energy by not allowing physical and mental stress to rob your energy. You don’t feel a “rush” of energy when you take Optimum Energy. Instead you feel a bedrock of balanced energy working in your system 24/7.
Try it. You’ll like the way you’ll feel.
