Given the natural circadian rhythm of the human body, 2 or 3PM often means naptime. Add a big lunch and a postprandial crash and you'll be fighting to stay awake by early afternoon.
Most people fix this with caffeine, but caffeine is better used tactically: morning or pre-workout only. Otherwise, you'll just adapt to it and it won't be there when you really need it.
Here's a better fix, something I think of as my no-caffeine energy shot:
1 serving MAG-10 with orange flavoring
1 serving of Power Drive
2 serving of Superfood
The fast "hit" of MAG-10 can perk you up all by itself, and Power Drive increases cognition and concentration. But why Superfood?
Dr. Lonnie Lowery notes that some foods that have methylxanthine ingredients which increase what's called energetic arousal. Berries and green tea -- both found in abundance in Superfood -- have cognitive and neuronal/motor benefits in both young learning animals and in ageing studies.
"In fact," Dr. Lowery said, "blueberry, spinach, and strawberry dried extracts have even been shown to reverse, not just prevent, neural declines. I think that these reasons are probably behind the sense of energy, elevated mood, and cognition being reported by those using Superfood."
This concoction also makes for a great "enhanced pulse" when using something like the Pulse Fast protocol. Give it a shot.
