Energy drinks have been wildly popular among both adolescents and adults in recent years. In fact, after multivitamins, energy drinks are the most popular dietary supplement consumed. The problem with many energy drinks is that they are highly stimulative and built for quick, hard-hitting energy that is often short lived and followed by an overwhelming crash. Brain Armor has launched a product packed with natural and functional nutrients that provides a consistent source of mental and physical energy while also supporting brain health and cognitive function with no feeling of the jitters or after-crash.
Brain Armor’s mission is to improve cognitive health at every stage of life and on every field of play. Their new Focus Fix formula does exactly that by offering its consumers a whole lot more than just energy. This product offers a natural way to promote feelings of alertness and focus that is sugar free and gluten free with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. This is the ultimate cognitive performance drink mix that includes 25 vitamins and minerals and other functional nutrients that have been found to nourish the brain and support overall productivity.
One of these functional nutrients is Alpha-Glycerophosphocholine (Alpha-GPC). The primary benefits of Alpha-GPC include; enhanced retention of cognition in both elderly and healthy adults, and improved attention/focus. Studies have also demonstrated that Alpha-GPC can positively impact physical performance including increased power output and strength in athletes when taken before exercise.
N-Acetyl L-Carnitine is another functional nutrient that has been noted to increase attention and focus in both adults and children. Studies have demonstrated improvements in cognition and reductions in both physical and mental fatigue. Like Alpha-GPC, N-Acetyl L-Carnitine has also been found to influence physical performance. Improved exercise performance coupled with reduction of perceived exertion and reduced muscle soreness has been observed with supplementation in several populations.
Lastly, Focus Fix contains 120mg of natural caffeine derived from green tea extract. Caffeine has been shown to increase wakefulness, decrease fatigue, and increase subjective wellbeing and mood. Up to 400 milligrams of caffeine has been determined as safe for consumption for adults, so this product keeps you alert well within safe limits.
If you’re like most people in today’s society looking for a boost in energy and focus, choose the natural way to support brain health. Choose Focus Fix.
