A proprietary blend of Adaptogenic Herbs, Vitamins, Aminos and Electorlytes. The first proprietary technology which creates healthy energy without the use of caffeine or other harmful stimulants.
The key to sustained healthy energy is stress reduction. Most people recognize that stress has a diminishing effect on energy. The key is cortisol, a stress hormone that is released by the adrenal glands into the body when any form of stress is present. When our cortisol levels are too high a “spike” occurs, the body shifts into a catabolic mode draining its protein energy and electrolytes. Too much cortisol is known to promote weight gain, cause fatigue and raise blood sugar levels. ADX7 works with your body to control cortisol levels.
ADX7 provides an Athletic Advantage. ADX7 works with your body at the cellular level to replenish your energy levels more effciently. Dr. Rik Deitsch, Ph.D., stated “The adaptogenic herbs have been shown in published trials to aid in increasing oxygen uptake into the cells, thereby increasing ATP production (the body’s energy currency). This spares muscle glycogen and allows you to be active for longer periods of time.”
The following will include details on our apaptogens, the central part of our formula, please click on these links for more infomation about the rest of the formula.
Adaptogenic herbs are a key component of the ADX7 Technology. Adaptogenic Herbs help the body adapt to all forms of stress causing the body to function more efficiently under pressure. This proprietary blend of herbs was developed using clinical trials over the span of many years in the former Soviet Union and the only supplement used by the 1988 Soviet Track and Field Olympic Team. The Soviet Union went on to win the highest number of gold medals (55) in Olympic history.
Adaptogens are protective and raise an individual's resistance to physical, chemical, or biological stresses. An adaptogen boosts recovery and has the power to normalize the physiological functioning of organisms suffering from various physical problems (homeostasis). Although powerful, an adaptogen must be harmless to the individual, disturbing natural bodily functions as little as possible.
Adaptogens have the most broad-spectrum healing properties of any herbal medicines. One of their primary values is that they specifically relieve stress. The main effects of adaptogens are an increased availability of energy during the day, a reduction of stress feelings, increased endurance, greater mental alertness, and deep and restful sleep. Adaptogens also significantly accelerate the recovery process after illness and sports activities.
As an adaptogen, eleuthero helps the body adapt to stress and bolsters the immune system. It does this by encouraging normal functioning of the adrenal glands, allowing them to function optimally when challenged by stress. Eleuthero has been shown to enhance mental acuity and physical endurance without the letdown that comes with caffeinated products. Research has shown that eleuthero improves the use of oxygen by the exercising muscle. This means that a person is able to maintain aerobic exercise longer and recovery from workouts is much quicker.
There have been numerous studies on schizandra's ability to quicken reflexes, increase work efficiency, promote longevity and increase stamina. Other reports have mentioned increased cognitive function and increased memory. Its strengthening effect is combined with system-balancing properties, making it ideal for such conditions as fatigue, nervous exhaustion, and lack of energy. Schisandra is one of the most popular adaptogenic herbs in China, where it is taken to beautify the skin and increase mental and physical exercise capacities. Unlike caffeine, schizandra stimulates the central nervous system without creating an excitatory effect.
This plant bolsters the immune system and increases stamina. Aralia Manshurica extract helps the body deal with toxins, enhances a person's ability for memorization and prolonged concentration and helps increase resistance, immunity, physical strength, and vital lung capacity. When your body is functioning at it's best, then it is free to answer to the demands that your day brings to you.
Rhaponticum Carthamoides contains a number of antioxidant flavonoids and natural sterols, including a substance called 20-Hydroxyecdysone, which has been shown to increase protein production at the cellular level, and in turn enhance the production of muscle tissue. Research conducted in Russia shows that extracts of Rhaponticum can significantly increase muscle mass, while decreasing body fat in athletes who use it while exercising. Research also shows that Rhaponticum extract can help to increase work capacity and endurance, while reducing mental and physical fatigue.
One of the greatest things Rhodiola does is enhance mental and physical performance. It has been widely used by Russian athletes and cosmonauts to increase energy. Rhodiola is cardio-protective, normalizing the heart rate immediately after intense exercise. It improves the nervous system and mental functions such as memory, by increasing blood-supply to the muscles and brain, and it also increases protein synthesis.
