Energy Stimulant + Mood Enhancer Supplement Ingredients
The formula works in three distinct, complementary areas.
The first area is the energy component. We have combined a specific amount of anhydrous caffeine with guarana and kola nut that have tannins and polyphenols attached to the caffeine molecules which result in less stomach irritation and slower absorption rates. Ginseng and Acetyl-L-Carnitine combine with key vitamins and minerals to optimize cellular energy function.
The second area are the mood effectors which promote the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine that improve disposition and feelings of pleasure. Our proprietary blend of L-theanine, L-tyrosine, and rhodiola ingredients have clinically proven positive effects on mood and focus. Research and testing shows that this unique blend has beneficial countereffects on depressive states, helping to rejuvenate your mind and spirit with feelings of enthusiasm, focus, and mental well-being.
The final area is designed to provide support to the body as it is being energized. JUMPSTART EX incorporates key B vitamins, magnesium, antioxidants like vitamin C and kola nut, and adaptogens like rhodiola, ginseng and schizandra which promote homeostasis and reduce sensitivity to stress. This allows this remarkable energy support formulation to have a broad ranging benefit to your vitality and mentality while minimizing any stress on your system in the process.
The JUMPSTART EX energy pill is a true smart formula (nootropic), crafted to be different, to be safer, and to intelligently address the best way of boosting energy. This energy supplement will give you a boost without the downsides of extra sugar calories, artificial colors or preservatives, excessive stress to the system, crashes or side-effects. We have done all the research to make sure this is the healthiest, smartest, most effective way to get a pick-me-up in both body and mind.
Here's what's in it:
Guarana is a South American berry that contains very high concentrations of caffeine (guaranine) and is used as a stimulant and appetite suppressant. For thousands of years, natives of the Amazon used the seed extract to help maintain stamina and physical endurance. Traditionally it was also used to assist in the relief of various ailments such as stress and nervous tension, weight control, headaches and hangovers. It is believed that due to the tannins and polyphenols attached to the caffeine molecule in its structure, it absorbs slower and causes less stomach irritation than caffeine from coffee. One study in 2006 at the University of Northumbria, showed evidence that guarana positively effected focus, memory and mood / disposition.
Kola Nut, also containing caffeine, indicates a strong stimulating effect on the central nervous system. Kola nut is unique in its combination of tannins and antioxidants, which like guarana, cause caffeine to absorb more slowly over time, minimizing stress and stomach irritation.
Anhydrous Caffeine has proven in studies to have a positive effect on mood, endurance, performance, and focus.
Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero) has been used for centuries to help enhance sexual and athletic performance as well as boost the immune system. This herb was hailed last century as an 'adaptogenic' (stress-protective) marvel. In a study of 36 children ranging in age from 3 to 17 years old, Ginseng was administered twice a day on an empty stomach for 4 weeks. At the end of the study, more than 70 percent of patients had experienced improvement in energy levels and on a widely used measure of attention problem symptoms (Lyon MR et al 2001).
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is an amino acid that supplies energy resources to mitochondria and is used to turn fat into energy. Although the body produces enough of its own ALC, supplementation improves the ability of certain tissues to produce energy, and has been shown in clinical studies to benefit cognitive ability, memory and mood.
L-Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid synthesized in the body from phenylalanine. It is an important nutritional ingredient and factor for biosynthesis of the brain neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine (key to positive mood.) By promoting the production of 'feel-good chemicals in the brain, tyrosine is very beneficial to improving mood and disposition.
Tyrosine is also used to produce one of the major hormones, thyroxin, which plays an important role in controlling metabolic rate, skin health, mental health, and growth rate. Tyrosine has been tested on humans for increasing their endurance to anxiety and stress under fatigue. It was proven in research studies that tyrosine supplementation results in increased performance over a control group (Avraham et al. 2001).
L-Theanine, derived from green tea, is an amino acid that has a direct influence on brain activity, such as balancing, focusing, and reducing stress, increasing production of neurotransmitters, and effecting glutamate levels. At higher doses, it has the ability to relax the mind without causing drowsiness. Research has shown that L-theanine counteracts the jittery, speed-like effects of caffeine without reducing its mind-energizing, or fat-burning features. It is particularly helpful when combined with caffeine in supplements for this ability to balance 'cellular nervousness.'
L-theanine's benefits on mood are now well-accepted and it has actually been patented as a mood enhancer. (US Patent Application 20040171624; Japanese Patent Application 2001-253740.) Furthermore, stress hormones, common in our modern day life, cause imbalances in brain chemistry that disrupt production of serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and other key brain chemicals. Drugs that suppress these stress hormones (glucocorticoids) are used as treatments for depression. However, research is showing that people who are depressed also have glutamate levels that are out of balance. Preliminary studies suggest that glutamate antagonists like L-theanine, which block certain signals in the brain activated by glutamate, may be as effective as antidepressants (Functional antagonists at the NMDA receptor complex exhibit antidepressant actions. Eur J Pharmacol. 1990 Aug 21;185(1):1-10.)
A handful of studies have also looked at the combination of L-theanine and caffeine on various aspects of cognition and mood (eg, alertness, attention.) For instance, one study compared the effect of caffeine with and without L-theanine on cognition and mood in 27 participants. Researchers gave participants placebo, caffeine, or caffeine plus L-theanine and measured their performance on several cognitive tests at baseline and then at 60 and 90 minutes after treatment. They found that the combination of caffeine and L-theanine improved speed and accuracy in an attention-switching task, as well as reduced the likelihood of distraction during a memory task. JUMPSTART EX takes advantage of this research as part of its remarkable formulation.
One study measured alpha activity in the brain, which plays an important role in attention. Thirty-five participants were given either 50 mg of L-theanine or placebo. Electroencephalogram (EEG) tests were done at baseline and then at specified times afterwards (45, 60, 75, 90, and 105 minutes). Researchers found that there was a greater increase in alpha activity in those who took L-theanine compared to placebo, demonstrating that the amino acid had an effect on the participants’ general state of mental alertness and arousal.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine, as mentioned above, also influences mood. Several studies have researched carnitines role in affecting mood. One double-blind study of 60 seniors with mild depression found that treatment with ALC daily over a 2-month period significantly improved symptoms as compared to placebo.
DMAE, dimethylaminoethanol, is exceptionally beneficial in helping increase the brain's ability to produce neurotransmitters. Also referred to as a 'cholinergic' (similar to choline), DMAE increases the levels of the acetylcholine, a chemical in the brain that regulates mental function. Results in clinical studies have shown that DMAE positively benefits focus and mental clarity as well as mood. One German sudy reported that 'DMAE can be interpreted to induce a psychophysiological state of better feeling of wellbeing on both levels of analysis mood and electrical pattern of brain activity in subjects suffering from borderline emotional disturbance.'
Magnesium, Vitamin B3, B6, B12, C are all critically involved in numerous functions in the body including being direct effectors of cognitive function. A recent laboratory study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reveals that an adequate amount of magnesium is necessary to maintain the 'plasticity' of synapses - the connectors that move information from neuron to neuron in the brain. When synapses are flexible to change, learning and memory are enhanced. Magnesium is involved in more than 300 metabolic reactions. Other conditions that have been associated with a magnesium deficiency include depression, anxiety and attention deficit disorder. Research suggest low levels of magnesium are associated with attention problems (Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Neurology, Georgetown University Medical Center, Oct 2000.) In fact, magnesium has been called the 'miracle nutrient' by some for its many valuable benefits.
Vitamin B in its various forms has many functions in the body, including assisting in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and forming myelin, which protect nerves. At least three studies have demonstrated that the combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 improved behavior, decreased anxiety and aggression, and improved mobility among subjects with focus problems (Nogovitsina Mousain-Bosc M et al 2004).
Rhodiola Rosea is an excellent adaptogen which helps supports the adrenal glands, working with the body to reduce stress while boosting energy, balancing the stimulants so as to not overtax the system. One particularly interesting aspect of rhodiola is that it appears to work differently within the body than other adaptogens -- the best known of which is the very popular herb Siberian ginseng. Rhodiola's unique mechanism of action excites researchers because it means this herb may be able to provide a therapeutic alternative to established adaptogens.
Schizandra (Schizandra chinensis) of the family Schizandraceae, is a creeping vine with small red berries that is native to Northern China. As a traditional medicinal herb, Schizandra, called Wu-wei-tzu in China, has been used as a tonic for the treatment of chronic fatigue. Studies conducted on schizandra's effects have noted that the herb has a stimulating effect in low doses (Pharmacological studies on Schizandra fruit. I. General pharmacological effects of gomisin A and schizandrin (author transl). Maeda S, Sudo K, Aburada M, Ikeya Y, Taguchi H, Yoshioka I, Harada M.)
Siberian Ginseng as mentioned above, has positive benefits as a boost to the immune system and has been hailed as an 'adaptogenic' (stress-protective) marvel. In 1991 the German Commission E (the European authority on the use of plants in healing) made it official by declaring that it was highly effective in boosting the immune system.
Bioperine is an effector of other ingredients. It is known to have enhancing and synergizing properties and when used in a mix of ingredients, increases the interacting potency of each.
As a synergistic blend, JUMPSTART EX is a remarkable energy support formulation. Just one dose and you'll feel fully charged and ready to be your best. We believe it's the healthiest and the most effective energy product you'll ever use.
Pep Supplement Usage:
The energy formula is balanced with other support ingredients, requiring a slightly larger dose. Generally the larger your body size, and the more commonly you ingest stimulants (red bull, coffee, pepsi, etc), the higher the dose you will need. The general guide is 1 capsule for every 65 lbs of body weight. Obviously, if you have food in your system, you will also need a higher dose.
It is important to create the right conditions for optimal effects because certain ingredients cannot easily cross the blood brain barrier when there are other competing amino acids in the blood stream, which occurs after eating a meal. When taken on an empty stomach, key nutrients are absorbed fully and will cross the blood brain barrier.
Here are the best two methods for use:
For a quicker effect, take 2 capsules on a completely empty stomach with at very least 8 fluid ounces of water or juice. You should feel the effects after 30 minutes. See how you respond and if necessary, increase the dosage by 1 capsule next time. If you feel any nervousness, eat a very small snack (fruit is best) 45 minutes later (this approach also prevents possible stomach discomfort.) The most common dose is 3 capsules (think 1 capsule for energy, 1 for mood, and 1 for support.) Try to drink a glass of water every hour for a few hours after taking.
If you are more prone to stomach discomfort or nervousness with energy pills, eat a small meal first, wait till the meal is digested (usually an hour,) then take 2 capsules with at very least 8 fluid ounces of water or juice. You should feel the effects in 30 to 40 minutes.
Finally, it is best to stick to just one good stimulant, so give your body a chance to adjust to JUMPSTART EX’s healthier and smarter approach and it will then have optimum results. Otherwise, expect its unique effects to get lost in the mix. Remember, how you take the supplement is critical to its effectiveness. Human biochemistry is a complex mechanism and everybody reacts differently.
Check with your physician before using stimulants, or if you are taking other medication. Do not mix stimulants! Keep out of reach of children and store in a cool place away from direct light. See warnings tab.
Important Information Before Using Any CNS Stimulant
Anyone using energy supplements containing one or more stimulant ingredients for the first time should check with a physician beforehand. Because of the general effect products like energy pills and diet pills have on your metabolic rate, if you have high blood pressure, it could be dangerous taking anything that increases heart rate. If you take any heart or high blood pressure medicine, do not use stimulants.
If you have a family history of heart disease or any heart condition, are pregnant or nursing, you should not take energy supplements.
This product contains tyrosine.
Levodopa interacts with Tyrosine. Tyrosine might decrease how much levodopa the body absorbs. By decreasing how much levodopa the body absorbs, tyrosine might decrease the effectiveness of levodopa. Do not take tyrosine and levodopa at the same time.
Thyroid hormone interacts with Tyrosine. The body naturally produces thyroid hormones. Tyrosine might increase how much thyroid hormone the body produces. Taking tyrosine with thyroid hormone pills might cause there to be too much thyroid hormone. This could increase the effects and side effects of thyroid hormones.
Do not combine with adenosine, certain asthma medications (theophylline, beta agonists such as albuterol), ciprofloxacin, clozapine, creatine, disulfiram, lithium, riluzole, or with other stimulants (e.g., amphetamines, methylphenidate).
Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, certain sodas) or eating large amounts of chocolate while taking this product.
Needless to say, you should not take any energy boosting supplement too close to bedtime unless staying up all night is your goal. The first time you try any energy pill, take it early in the day to determine how long it will stay active in your system and keep your energy levels elevated.
Everybody reacts differently to energy supplements depending on metabolism, weight, sex and physiology.
Women usually do not need the same amount as men to feel the effect. Start with half the dose just to be on the safe side and monitor how you react to it and how long you feel energized for. If the effect is not to your satisfaction, increase the dose but be careful about exceeding the recommended dose.
People that drink coffee, tea, caffeinated sodas, or use other stimulants like energy drinks or energy bars, don't usually get the same effect due to their bodies regular exposure and the consequent reduced sensitivity. Once you have experienced the unfettered effects of JUMPSTART EX, you will be happy to replace all your other stimulants with this healthier formula.
Never take more then one type of stimulant at the same time. Signs and symptoms that you have taken too much are nausea, sweats, heart palpitations, headaches and rapid pulse.
Lastly, stimulants place stress upon the body -- it's like revving your car engine constantly, even when stationary. The adrenal glands come under a lot of pressure and cause all sorts of consequences in all sorts of areas if continued unabated for extended periods of time. Do not take any stimulant continuously without regular breaks. JUMPSTART EX was developed specifically with this knowledge so as to place minimal stress on the adrenal system and has particular ingredients like rhodiola, schizandra, vitamin B's, and more that are adaptogens and actually support the adrenal system to help the body use the additional energy in a manageable and healthy way. JUMPSTART EX can thus be used more regularly without the damage done by other stimulants, but even JUMPSTART EX should not be taken every day without break. Pay attention to your body, but we recommend taking 2 days or so off for every week of daily use.
