Our commitment to qualityHere at BOOSTme we know that quality and health matter. Let’s face it, life is way too busy to mess with anything less than the best. And in our busy, fast-paced, active and stressful lives we don’t have time to waste. That’s why we have committed to only the highest quality in everything we do, and we take great pleasure in delivering that quality to you through the best adaptogen supplements! To source the very best adaptogen herbs we go straight to the source – the Altai mountains in Siberia. Because like every wine-maker or farmer knows… what’s in the soil and water of what you grow makes a world of difference in the end result. Many adaptogens on the market today are grown outside of their natural habitat – which isn’t where they naturally thrive – and that just won’t cut it for us. Plus… Did you know there are actually two classes of adaptogens? Primary and Secondary. While all adaptogens are good for you Primary adaptogen herbs are, well, Primary… top dog… numero uno!! BOOSTme only uses Primary adaptogens, a.k.a. the Top Adaptogens, which are naturally found and wild-crafted in the Altai mountains. Our unique adaptogen formula has been vigorously tested and clinically formulated to be the exact right combination that your body needs to utilize the awesome power of adaptogens. Like a good wine, many vitamins and herbs are best in certain pairings… and wasted in others. So rest assured, you are getting T-bone-and-a-perfectly-aged-red quality here! A full description, and health benefits, of each plant in our adaptogen blend is below. To become a Jedi-master of adaptogens keep reading for all the good bits of knowledge you can use to impress at your next social event! We don’t just want you to buy our product, we want you to live a better life and be a better you… and we believe adaptogens are the key. We hope you join us!
BOOSTme: Four Primary Adaptogenic Herbs
The Stamina Booster
You’re lifting weights, or swinging a baseball bat, or running a marathon, or doing whatever kind of physical activity you’re into, and after a while what happens? You wear down. It’s not your fault: that’s how muscles work. They start to break down. Nothing is going to stop it, right? Wrong, actually, but more on that later… Now you’re studying. You’re pouring over your study materials to prep for an exam, or maybe you’re just reading a book for leisure. Either way: you can’t do it if you can’t focus, and after a while, no matter what you do, it becomes harder and harder to focus. Turns out: your brain is a muscle too. Same science applies. That’s just life. Actually, no it isn’t, but more on that in a sec… It’s been a hard day at work. You come home and you’re drained. Your mental faculties are tapped out, and to add insult to injury, now your mental fatigue is taking a physical toll in the bedroom. Hey, it happens. It’s not just you: there’s a mental/physical link here that is not working in your favor. But, actually, this relationship can be straightened out… In rigorous animal and human scientific testing, Rhodiola rosea extract has proven to give your body’s cells the compounds they need to significantly reduce the toll that physical and mental stress takes on you. That’s stress relief you can believe in. This grassy herb, also known as Golden Root or Arctic Root, hails from those Russian Altai Mountains we mentioned earlier, and when taken prophylactically (AKA regularly, rather than only when you see symptoms) is proven to help diminish the effects of:
- Mental Fatigue
- Muscle Fatigue
- Attention Deficit
- Sleep Disorders
Not bad for grass, huh? But Rhodiola rosea isn’t the only primary adaptogen out there…
The Muscle Maker
When you’re in Siberia, hanging out in the Altai Mountains, watching male stags fight each other over mating partners, you might be keen enough to notice that the stags do something very interesting after a knock down, drag out bout with a fellow deer: They dig up roots and eat them. And what roots do they dig up? You guessed it: Leuzia carthamoides. Or in the common tongue: Maral root. You’ve probably heard of steroids before. Maybe in relation to sports performance and athletes getting banned because they used them. Steroids — at least the kind athletes take to build muscle — are man-made concoctions with the ability to increase muscle growth after a workout. In other words: if two people do the same workout, but one is on steroids, that person will see greater muscle growth than the non-steroid user. Fair? Not really. But there is actually a way to achieve similar results without cheating… Get this: The key to muscle growth is increasing anabolic activity. That’s what steroids do. Problem is: they also decrease androgen function, which is why you hear about those less-than-ideal side effects that come from anabolic steroids. But here’s the best part: Leuzia is proven to increase anabolic activity naturally, without impairing your body’s androgen function. Basically: you get a muscle-building head start without the side effects. Luella carthamoides also have some overlapping benefits with Rhodiola rosea. All in all, it can help you:
- Grow muscle naturally
- Fight muscle fatigue
- Diminish mental fatigue
- Diminish insomnia symptoms
And we’re only halfway there. We still have two top adaptogens to go, including…
The Recovery Stimulator
You know that feeling you have after you play a game of basketball for the first time in years? You know, the one where you can’t get off the couch because everything is so sore that all movement seems like a cruel and unusual punishment? The same applies to any situation that has you thinking, “Man, I’m not as young as I once was.” Or if you’ve kept yourself in tip-top shape, maybe you can relate with the “plateau.” You know, that’s the one where you know your body just isn’t progressing the way it used to after workouts, and you’re not sure what to do. The bottom line is: You are experiencing a dip in your body’s ability to recover from repeated stress. Lucky for you, this is not a situation you have to accept. At least, not for long… Eleutherococcus senticosus, or Siberian Ginseng, has proven through decades of scientific testing that it has the ability to help the body recover more quickly from repeated physical stress when it is taken prophylactically – that is regularly. There are basically two reasons for Siberian Ginseng’s stellar ability to help athletes and laborers recover from their physical exertions:
- It helps activate the release of oxygen into tired muscles
- It regulates the activities of the endocrine glands.
And last but certainly not least, our fourth primary adaptogen.
The Reflex Manager
Our last adaptogen has been scientifically proven to affect a system we haven’t really touched on to this point: the nervous system. If you’re not familiar, your nervous system is basically the communications department in your body. Shooting messages back and forth along the — you guessed it — nerves! But just like communications departments, some systems function a little more efficiently than others… As a result of prolonged exposure to stressors, your nervous system, just like your muscular system, can begin to wear down. It can get a little sluggish. Those messages just aren’t zipping back and forth the way they used to. Normally, you wouldn’t really notice this, but there’s a reason you want those messages flying as quickly as possible… Long story short: A fine-tuned nervous system can save your life, thanks to these little things called Spinal Reflexes. Spinal reflexes are what happens when your body reacts to something without bothering to talk to your brain about it. It’s what people are talking about when they say they “reacted without thinking.” It’s what happens when the doctor taps your knee and you kick, even though you didn’t tell your leg to do that. And rigorous scientific testing shows that Schizandra chinesis, a lemony plant the Russians call “Limonnik,” has the ability to decrease the amount of time it takes for your body to respond with a spinal reflex. And when every second and split-second counts, that could just save your life.
