The new and improved Zenergize was formulated to support focus, motivation, mood, memory and cognitive performance.
The hectic demands of modern life often lead to exhaustion. As a result, many people turn to energy supplements which can often cause nervousness, jitters and a severe crash in the evening. Some energy drinks may also contain artificial sweeteners or other chemicals.
Cognitive performance shouldn’t have to come at the expense of health and serenity.
Not only does the new Zenergize promote autonomic arousal, it now contains additional key ingredients for supporting dopamine levels and the functioning of dopaminergic pathways. It also includes new components for promoting cognitive enhancement, memory support and increased neuroplasticity.*
Autonomic arousal is often associated with stress, but healthy levels of epinephrine and norepinephrine are conducive to sustaining attention. Zenergize was formulated with consideration given to mitigating the potentially unwanted physical effects associated with autonomic arousal.*
Dopamine is the neurotransmitter associated with reward and motivation. Zenergize provides unparalleled dopamine support to help you to wake up feeling invigorated, alive, razor-sharp, and relishing the day ahead.
Zenergize contains eleven high-quality ingredients, three of which are adaptogenic herbs, namely Panax Ginseng, Rhodiola Rosea and Guarana. Panax ginseng and Rhodiola have been used for thousands of years in China and India, while guarana has long been used by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforest.
Research indicates that adaptogens, as the name suggests, can help our bodies adapt to stress and regulate homeostasis.* Although adaptogens have long been hailed for their balancing properties, scientific light is only recently being shed on their astounding effects.
DL-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine together provide comprehensive dopamine support, combined with caffeine, guarana, ginseng, and B vitamins to promote norepinephrine synthesis and release. In addition, we added L-theanine to help balance autonomic arousal with calmness. L-theanine is a soothing ingredient found abundantly in green tea.
Finally, Zenergize now contains additional nootropics to enhance brain function, learning and memory.
Citicoline is a compound naturally produced by the body as a precursor to critical plasma membrane phospholipids. Citicoline also serves as a choline donor for the synthesis of the key parasympathetic neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is vital for learning and memory formation. In addition, scientific research has proven citicoline to have neuroprotective properties and to encourage endogenous neurorepair.
Citicoline has been shown to promote arousal, attention, learning and memory formation. It’s also one of few compounds proven to support neuroplasticity. Remember when you were a child, how you could learn completely new subjects in a short time? That’s because the mind of a child is what’s referred to as “plastic.” Neuroplasticity is a remarkable feature of the nervous system. In fact, it’s the defining feature of the nervous system — its ability to change itself in response to experience. Everything that you know, everything you can do, and everything that you’ll ever be able to do, is bound only by the limits of neuroplasticity. Children have an abundance of the neurochemicals needed to form new neural pathways. However, as we age, our brains lose plasticity. As an adult, achieving neuroplasticity is possible, but it requires the release of neurochemicals associated with focus, engagement, and a strong sense of urgency. Citicoline has been proven to potentiate neuroplasticity.* Healthy adults frequently utilise it to improve focus and attention. Randomised placebo-controlled trials have shown it to enhance cognitive inhibition, attentional performance, accuracy, and impulsivity.*
Uridine is another one of the new Zenergize ingredients. Uridine is one of the five standard nucleosides that comprise nucleic acids – the biopolymers that form all human life. Pyrimidine nucleosides such as uridine help to maintain mitochondrial function, catecholamine-synthesis, and glutamatergic transmission. Uridine is a precursor to phosphatidylcholine, a choline source used to produce acetylcholine. As previously mentioned, acetylcholine is vital for learning, memory formation and neuroplasticity. Several studies have observed that uridine supplementation improves memory function and learning ability and positively affects mood and well-being. There is also some evidence suggesting uridine can slow brain atrophy and improve measures of cognitive decline associated with ageing.
Finally, the new and improved Zenergize also contains DL-phenylalanine, also known as DLPA. DL-phenylalanine is used to support mood, energy, stress resistance and maintain healthy non-malignant pain management. In addition, DL-phenylalanine is a precursor to tyrosine, which is a precursor for adrenaline, noradrenaline, and dopamine.
