Lacie and I both are glad to have you reading the post here at A Seed Planted Mobile Herb Shop. We are a small family business located in Chesterfield, Virginia. It is our goal to help you become A Healthier You! The topic of today’s newsletter is Motivation.
The key to successful motivation understands the why. Why is it that you want to commit your time and efforts to creating a healthier you? Is it because you want to look better? Is it because you want to be alive long enough to see your child graduate? When I was training to be a Certified Nutritional Consultant my instructor said: “Good health starts when you have identified why you want to live longer, why you want to feel better and why you want to look better.”
Everybody has different reason for achieving their health goals. These reasons may even change over time. This is okay.
In the comment section below please post your reasons for achieving your health goals.
Knowing exactly where you want to be and identifying the steps to get there is the key to a healthier you.
It is the goal of A Seed Planted Mobile Herb Shop to assist you in creating a plan to help you achieve your health goals.
Featured Product: EnergyFix Beverage
NEED A LIFT? Try EnergyFix Beverage
Created by LIfe Extension Scientists for their own use.
EnergyFix® is specifically designed to provide nutrients that your brain can use to make more neurotransmitters. Nuerotransmitters are not drugs. They are natural substances made by neurons in your brain from certain nutrients in your diet. These nutrients, which many of us are lacking, are required throughout the day for alertness, energy, ‘get up and go‘, making quick decisions and effortless memory. The amount of activity that you can perform has a lot to do with the supply of neurotransmitters available to your brain. Taking EnergyFix® 2-3 times a day will help your brain naturally make these great neurotransmitters.
WHY ARE NEUROTRANSMITTERS SO IMPORTANT?
Everything that you do begins in your brain – every thought, every memory, and every will to move a muscle. Everything that goes on in your body happens because of the release of neurotransmitters. EnergyFix® is specifically designed to provide nutrients that your brain can use to make more neurotransmitters. The results are pretty remarkable.
Mental fitness formulations were created in the early 70’s. Noradrenaline, the brain’s version of adrenaline, is required for alertness, activity and ‘get up and go’. When you have ample amounts of noradrenaline you can make quick decisions and have effortless memory. There is a related neurotransmitter called dopamine. Dopamine is important in the reward system of pleasure. It is also essential for memory.
Neurotransmitters are not drugs; they’re natural substances made by neurons in your brain from nutrients in your diet. The neurotransmitters transmit nerve signals across the synapse from one nerve to another.
The amount of activity that you can perform has a lot to do with the supply of the neurotransmitters that are available to your brain. That supply, in turn, depends on the availability of raw materials the brain receives from your diet or from supplements.
HOW DO WE GET MORE NORADRENALINE?
Phenylalanine is a precursor of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline and is available in the typical diet. Most of it, however, may be squandered through competition with other amino acids for transport across the blood-brain barrier or used for other purposes such as building proteins or for gluconeogenesis (making glucose from amino acids). The problem we face is not just the availability of precursors. Co-factors are also an issue. If you go into a health food store, you’ll be able to find phenylalanine capsules easily. Sometimes you take them and something happens; you get more energized. Many times nothing at all happens. Part of that is because other nutrients such as vitamin B6 and vitamin C, folic acid and copper are needed in order to convert phenylalanine into noradrenaline and dopamine. These are essential nutrients that are required as co-factors to enzymes that are involved in the process of conversion. These materials – the copper and the vitamin B6 – are also required to convert phenylalanine into beta phenylethylamine, which is a neuromodulator in your brain that modulates the effects of noradrenaline and dopamine and probably some other neurotransmitters as well.
DISCOVERING HOW THE BRAIN USES NUTRIENTS
The specific pathways along which these nutrients operate has been studied and this information is used in the design of EnergyFix. Once it was discovered that noradrenaline and dopamine were being depleted by excessively hard work, the obvious question was how does the brain make them? It is important to know what nutrients, enzymes and co-factors are required. Most of this has been known since the mid-1960’s. The metabolic pathway charts, which show each step in the process of going from phenylalanine to noradrenaline, are widely and readily available.
Experiments have shown how much noradrenaline can be produced. One experiment involved army personnel who had to fly halfway around the world and then engage in simulated combat. They used a related amino acid, tyrosine, as a supplement. They found that tyrosine could help fight the fatigue and brain fade that occur. Another study involved the breakdown products of noradrenaline and other neurotransmitters that are found in the urine after various kinds of activities. It is known that more of the breakdown products of noradrenaline appear after mentally fatiguing activities, such as working long hours.
In an experiment performed on office workers in Japan who were given difficult mental tasks to perform it was discovered that if the difficult mental tasks went on for only a couple of hours a supplement didn’t make a drastic difference. However, in an all-day task of eight hours or more supplements made a real difference – particularly as the day wore on – in terms of the person’s alertness and ability to perform.
HOW DO I TAKE ENERGYFIX FOR BEST RESULTS?
Do not take EnergyFix® with proteins. Wait at least one hour after consuming protein and then do not consume proteins for an hour after taking EnergyFix. When your stomach disassembles protein certain amino acids can interfere with the transport of phenylalanine across your stomach into your blood stream and particularly across your blood-brain barrier into the brain.
There are protease enzymes in your saliva that start the digestive process as soon as you start chewing. When protein reaches your stomach it starts to be taken apart by protease enzymes. Our bodies are very efficient at breaking down food into usable nutrients.
EnergyFix® Capsules are designed to do the same thing as the EnergyFix drink but without the low glycemic fructose. You’ll get better results if you take carbohydrates with EnergyFix® and EnergyFix® Capsules . We recommend a piece of fruit with your drink (or capsules) both at 10:00 AM & 3:00 PM. This is a good way to get your two pieces of fruit for the day along with the necessary fiber.
CHECK IT OUT WITH YOUR DOCTOR
One fascinating statistic is that 80% of the population does not get the FDA’s recommended daily allowance of one or more of the essential nutrients you need to make the most important neurotransmitters, dopamine and noradrenaline. So it is understandable that the number one complaint doctors get from their patients is that they feel chronically tired or fatigued. Now we hasten to warn against the assumption that if you are chronically weary then all you need is one of our supplements containing phenylalanine and co-factors. You may have a medical condition, which needs to be treated by a doctor. If you feel chronically tired, go to a doctor; have him or her do lab work for you. If everything checks out then EnergyFix® may be your best solution for feeling better.
