Awakened Energy, Zen Tranquility.
The Zenergize formula harnesses ancient wisdom, combined with modern science, to provide you with calm yet highly charged wakefulness, vigilance, razor sharp cognitive processing, improved memory and enhanced physical performance.
The Zenergize formula consists of adaptogens coupled with theacrine, tyrosine, l-theanine, B vitamins and time-release caffeine. One of the main benefits of Zenergize is that it provides calm, focused energy without the anxiety or subsequent crash typical of other stimulants. It stimulates both alpha and beta brainwaves. Alpha is a "flow state" or "Zen state," commonly described as a feeling of being "in the zone." It is "the power of now"; being here, attune to the present. Alpha waves aid overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind/body integration and learning. Beta waves are omitted when we are vigilant, engaged in problem solving, judgment or critical thinking. Zenergize is formulated to stimulate both alpha and beta waves for optimal executive functioning at the highest levels of cognitive endurance.
Of the 10 powerful ingredients, 4 are ancient adaptogenic herbs, namely Panax Ginseng, Rhodiola Rosea, Mucuna Pruriens and Guarana. These Adaptogens have been used for thousands of years in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, as well as by the Shamans of the Amazon. Adaptogens, as the name suggests, help our bodies to adapt to emotional and physical stress, as well as to toxins . When you’re out of balance, adaptogens recalibrate your body in exactly the way it needs to reach equilibrium. When you feel tired, Zenergize can wake you up. When you feel restless, Zenergize can help you sleep. When you feel anxious, it can calm you down. The fact that adaptogens tailor their effects to exactly what your body needs to reach homeostasis is what makes them so remarkable. What’s more, they are non-toxic and extremely beneficial for health, longevity and wellbeing. Some might say, adaptogens are miraculous. Although adaptogens have long been hailed as a divine balancing force of nature, only recently is scientific light being shed on their astounding effects.
In creating Zenergize, we at Zenstra combined the power of these ancient adaptogens with the cleanest energy-inducing compounds which modern science has to offer. We use microencapsulated, time-release caffeine, which provides a smooth jolt of energy, lasting hours without the crash.
Another key ingredient in Zenergize is a newly discovered compound called theacrine. Theacrine is a natural alkaloid which is similar to caffeine. It is found mainly in the leaves of Camellia assamica var. kucha. It provides crystal clear stimulation, without the unwanted side effects which usually accompany stimulant use. Whereas most stimulants cause anxiety, a racing heart and soaring blood pressure, theacrine simply induces wakefulness . What’s more, it’s impossible to build a tolerance to theacrine, so you will never need to increase the dose to get the same effects.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid which is a precursor for dopamine, norepinephrine and adrenaline. If you have plenty of tyrosine in your bloodstream, it replenishes these neurotransmitters before they become depleted by stress, allowing you to stay sharper for longer without getting burned out .
L-theanine is an anxiolytic compound found in green tea, black tea and some mushrooms. It helps reduce anxiety, while also promoting alertness [4, 5]. It has a chemical structure very similar to glutamate, a naturally occurring amino acid in the body that helps transmit nerve impulses. Some of the effects of theanine appear similar to glutamate, and some effects seem to block glutamate.
- Panax Ginseng: Known as the “king of herbs”, panax ginseng is a root that grows in the mountains of Eastern Asia and is traditionally used as a warming, energizing and stimulating herbal medicine that fights stress and improves resilience. Panax ginseng regulates the body's secretion of hormones such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine, to calm down a heightened stress response . It also boosts resistance and endurance in stressful situations by mildly stimulating the central nervous system, as well as by increasing circulation to the brain to improve cognition, clarity and memory .
- Rhodiola Rosea: Rhodiola is a fatigue-fighting adaptogen, hailing from cold mountainous regions throughout the Northern Hemisphere. It soothes symptoms of stress by mediating the release of cortisol while simultaneously increasing concentration and alertness . It's an ergogenic acid – a herb that enhances both physical and mental performance . Studies have found that stressed-out students who took rhodiola achieved significantly higher grades than their peers who took a placebo . The USSR classified Rhodiola as a viable performance enhancer for space travel .
- Mucuna Pruriens: Mucuna pruriens is a legume native to Africa and tropical Asia. In herbalism, it is used to improve mood and motivation [12, 13]. It contains the most bioavailable form of L-Dopa found in nature. L-Dopa is a precursor for dopamine. Dopamine is the neurotransmitter responsible for motivation, memory, and cognition. Thus, it can help replenish one's motivational life-force. Mucuna pruriens has also been shown to have brain-protecting antioxidant abilities and may help to remove toxins and heavy metals from the body .
- Guarana: Guarana is a fruit resembling an eyeball which is indigenous to the Amazon basin. It contains the highest concentration of caffeine found in nature. It works in synergy with our slow-release caffeine to boost energy and cognitive performance. A 17th century Jesuit missionary noted that guarana gave members of an Amazon tribe "so much energy, that when hunting, they could go from one day to the next without feeling hungry." It also contains powerful tanins and catechins which may protect the brain against age-related memory loss and cognitive decline . It is speculated that these tannins cause the caffeine in guarana to release slowly.
These ingredients work in synergistic harmony, helping you wake up, find your Zen and overcome any obstacle in your path.
