Energy Drinks and Mental Fitness

Healthy Energy Drinks and Mental Fitness

Life Priority teamed up with life extension scientists, Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw® to market and develop a full line of healthy products called Designer Foods to improve and enhance your cognitive function, which spans not only memory, but attention, learning, problem solving, decision making, and reasoning.

Each new day presents challenges that, if not met and overcome, may leave you less fit mentally to control your life . . . to achieve your financial goals . . . to set the stage for pursuing your personal happiness.

By starting each day with a cool, refreshing glass of delicious LIFT™ (or LIFT Caps™) or Mind™ or Muscle Memory™), you can embrace a lifelong “Mental Fitness” program.

Life Priority healthy drink mixes, many of which are healthy energy drink mixes. These include the LIFT™ family mentioned above, all of which employ the amino acid phenylalanine, a precursor to an important memory molecule, noradrenaline, and your brain’s version of adrenaline. They also include the necessary enzyme cofactors vitamin B6, vitamin C, copper, and folic acid, along with natural flavors.

These formulations are based on the nutrient choline, which is the important memory nutrient involved in concentration and focus.* As we age, choline becomes less bioavailable, with serious consequences for memory function.

The “Mental Fitness” drinks are great-tasting, natural, fruit-flavored citrus cooler containing choline and essential nutrient cofactors plus the important amino acid taurine. Use Mind to help preserve and protect your memory function.*

Supplements for Memory “Loss”

Over time, the effects of too little sleep, aging, and the stress of a busy life can impair both your cognitive and memory functions. It may seem as if your memory has been “lost.” While many try to combat these effects with stimulants like caffeine, these only provide a temporary lift, and come with a host of unwanted side effects. Instead of masking the symptoms, why not improve the underlying problems instead? Try our Productive Sleep drink with choline.

Our formulas are carefully tested to ensure that they are safe and meet your needs. Often taking cues from historical findings, our scientists use their knowledge of the human body to create formulas based on scientific studies. They give real results.

Instead of settling for poorly designed energy drinks or caffeine pills that provide only a short burst of energy followed by a mental crash, consider products that have been developed using real science. Other sources can leave you feeling jittery, and carry the threat of weight gain from all the extra sugar and calories these drinks usually contain. If you rely on products like caffeine, you may also experience the symptoms of addiction. With Life Priority products, these are concerns you no longer have to consider. We carefully test all products to ensure that as long as the proper dosage recommendations are followed, you will notice no negative side effects from their use.

What Are Antioxidants? 6 Quick Facts About Antioxidant Vitamins

1)  What are antioxidants?

When discussing antioxidants, we mean vitamins C, E, and the provitamin Beta Carotene.

2) Where are antioxidants found?

These nutrients can be found in a wide variety of vitamin supplements and fortified foods. More specifically, Vitamin C is found in grapefruits, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, kale, potatoes and broccoli. Vitamin E is found in leafy greens and nuts. Finally, Beta Carotene is found in collard greens and spinach, as well as other dark green leafy vegetables, and in yellow-orange fruits and vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupes and peaches.

3) What do antioxidants do?

Antioxidant vitamins play an important part in keeping our body safe and healthy. Free radicals, highly-reactive and unstable molecules that may cause cellular damage, threaten our body daily. They are produced naturally within our bodies and can also be produced by air pollution and tobacco smoke. After recent studies and research, it’s now believed that the cellular damage caused by free radicals, in addition to other factors, may lead to the formation of many chronic diseases including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants are very important because they have the ability to neutralize free radicals and keep our body healthy.

4) What do doctors and other health professionals recommend?

Obviously doctors and healthcare providers recommend regular exercise, checkups on a consistent basis, less fatty foods and salts and no smoking. In addition to these healthy practices, it’s also recommended to eat a balanced diet that contains at least five daily servings of vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidant vitamins.

5) How about vitamin supplements?

Antioxidant vitamins can be found in numerous supplements and food products such as breakfast cereals and juice drinks. Many physicians believe taking supplements or eating fortified foods with vitamins and minerals is important for those who don’t have a particularly good diet or who have special needs. People are also strongly advised to read the nutritional labels.

6) Are there any risks to ingesting antioxidants?

Vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene are officially classified as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). In addition, the vast amount of scientific evidence obtained and gathered over many years supports the safety of antioxidants, even at high levels, but one should always follow label directions.

Need to get more antioxidants into your diet? A supplement might be an option. For example, One-Per-Meal LifeGuard™ is a multi-vitamin and mineral antioxidant supplement formulated for free radical protection and general nutrition needs.
