Mineral Water, Coconut Water, Cane Sugar, l-Arginine = Versatile nitric oxide precursor. Arginine supports nitric oxide formation, important for healthy dilation of blood vessels, circulation, and blood flow. In a prospective, double blind trial, l-arginine supplementation supported healthy endothelial function in blood vessels of male volunteers. In other studies, l-arginine promoted healthy platelet function and enhanced exercise tolerance. In men with low urinary nitric oxide values, l-arginine may support healthy sexual function. Some but not all research involving l-arginine supplementation for sperm motility has produced positive results. Arginine plays a role in the synthesis of hormones such as insulin and growth hormone, and has demonstrated the potential to support glucose metabolism and growth hormone production respectively. Because of its effect on nitric oxide production, l-arginine is theoretically best avoided by individuals with migraines, depression, autoimmune disorders, and kidney or liver disease. Arginine is contra-indicated for individuals with the herpes virus. l-Arginine is a safe, versatile amino acid precursor of nitric oxide associated with promoting cardiovascular health, immune support, sexual function, and memory.);
l-Carnosine=Antioxidant dipeptide for cell protection: l-Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) occurs naturally in the body's muscle and nervous tissues and is formed by the amino acids alanine and histidine. Levels of this dipeptide can decline with age. It is a water-soluble antioxidant with free-radical scavenging activity and is believed to promote cell health and cell longevity. In vitro, l-carnosine maintains healthy advanced glycation end-product, or AGE, activity. These end-products are formed when aldehydes (such as aldose and ketose sugars) and lipid peroxidation by-products bind to proteins. l-Carnosine plays a role in maintaining DNA integrity. l-Carnosine may also support superoxide dismutase activity. In addition, l-carnosine may help to maintain healthy peptide metabolism in the brain and its membrane-stabilizing properties support healthy lactate dehydrogenase activity of cardiovascular cells. The concentration of l-carnosine in muscle may prove to be an important factor in high-intensity exercise performance based on a recent human study. l-Carnosine provides unique protective mechanisms in the body to maintain healthy protein and cellular function in various tissues. Supplementation may support optimal levels of l-carnosine, which can naturally decline with age;
Balanced B vitamin as a complex. The B vitamins are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system and are perhaps the most important nutritional factor for healthy nerve cells. The B vitamins also play a role in the conversion of carbohydrates into energy, in the metabolism of fats and protein, and in the maintenance of muscle tone in the GI tract. The B vitamins support the integrity of the skin, hair, and liver. This balanced combination of functionally interrelated B vitamins provides wide ranging benefits, yet is specifically supportive of the nervous system. As part of a well-balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, folic acid, vitamin B, and vitamin B may reduce the risk of vascular disease;
Ascorbic Acid = Potent antioxidant support. Vitamin C offers a wide range of support for the human body. It is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It supports the body's defense system by enhancing white blood cell function and activity, and increasing interferon levels, antibody responses, and secretion of thymic hormones. It is essential for the formation and maintenance of intercellular ground substance and collagen. Vitamin C aids in the absorption of iron and the formation of red blood cells and converts folic acid to active folinic acid. It maintains healthy histamine release and supports lymphocyte formation. Vitamin C is also required for the synthesis of carnitine and steroids. Vitamin C, one of the most potent dietary antioxidants, provides optimal nutritional support to all physiological functions, including, notably, vascular and capillary integrity in support of the circulatory system Niacitol Well-tolerated, no-flush niacin Niacitol is a form of niacin, a coenzyme, which assists in the breakdown and utilization of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Niacin also maintains healthy lipid metabolism and is involved in the synthesis of sex hormones and the formation of skin and digestive tissues. Niacitol is well tolerated and is unlikely to cause flushing, a common side effect of niacin;
Guarana=A unique source of energyGuarana is a unique source of energy, distinct from caffeine; this is to take advantage of the fact that not many consumers are aware that caffeine is found in a wide variety of plants. In general, South America obtains most of its caffeine from guarana. Guaraná soft drinks are very popular in Brazil.In addition to other chemicals, the guarana plant contains caffeine (sometimes called "guaranine"), theophylline, and theobromine. Water extracts of the guarana plant are central nervous system stimulants due to the content of these alkaloids. Energy drink manufacturers typically add synthetic caffeine or caffeine derived from coffee decaffeination, though many advertise "natural" caffeine but the only natural is those from the seeds of guarana. Brazil, which consumes the third-most amount of soft drinks in the world produces several brands of soft drink from guarana extract. In fact, sales of guarana drinks in Brazil are even greater than that of cola drinks. They claim that the consumption of guarana does not result in jitters associated with the consumption of coffee. However this may be a placebo effect or result from the presence of additional substances. Guarana Seed PowderStudies involving guarana show benefits to cognitive function. These studies have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration or any similar government agencies. The Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics published a study in June 2001 showing an average 11.2 pound weight loss in a group taking a mixture of yerba mate, guarana and damiana, compared to an average 1 pound loss in a placebo group after 45 days.
