Strong and Smart

Have you ever sat down to do something significant and possibly urgent, but you simply cannot concentrate for more than a few minutes? Have you ever gotten to the gym and felt like turning around and walking back out to hit the couch, or worse the fridge?

Or how about being so nervous about a big test or presentation that facts and figures are all jumbled in your mind? And you cannot seem to remember anything you painstakingly reviewed in the last couple of days.

In all of these situations, caffeine could help wake up and focus your mind and body. But using caffeine alone, especially in higher doses, can leave you jittery, shaky, and unable to focus. There is so much more to an energy boost than the ability to just keep going like an energizer bunny.

Thrivous Surge offers a relaxed, focused energy boost by adding L-Theanine and Panax ginseng to complement Caffeine. Skip the jitters and crashes caused by caffeine by adding Thrivous Surge to your performance boosting regime.

Thrivous Surge

Thrivous Surge contains:

  • 200 mg L-Theanine
  • 100 mg Panax Ginseng Root Extract (7% Ginsenoside)
  • 100 mg Caffeine Anhydrous

How Caffeine Works in the Brain

Humans have used caffeine for centuries to help them wake up and get going. Coffee, green tea,  black tea, yerba mate, and even cocoa beans are natural sources of caffeine.

Note that the Food and Drug Administration notes for healthy adults, up to 400 mg of daily caffeine is “not generally associated with dangerous, negative side effects.” The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages children and teenagers from consuming caffeine. Caffeine use should be limited when pregnant or breastfeeding.

Biochemistry explains how caffeine stimulates the brain.

With every waking hour, adenosine levels rise and accumulate in the brain. Adenosine acts as an inhibitory transmitter to relax and sedate the brain for sleep. With a similar chemical structure to adenosine, caffeine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and interferes with adenosine binding.

It takes about forty-five minutes from ingesting caffeine to reach maximum blood serum levels. Depending on the person, the biochemical effects caused by caffeine can last up to six hours.

Interrupting adenosine binding increases the uptake of acetylcholine, dopamine, serotonin, and adrenaline to promote energy, cognition, focus, and recall.

  • Acetylcholine helps encode new memories to support working memory, cognition, and recall.
  • Dopamine is best known for boosting mood. However, it is also involved in relaying nerve messages to enhance movement, memory, attention, learning, and cognition.
  • Serotonin is the neurotransmitter associated with “feeling good”. Besides enhancing mood, it also supports focus.
  • Adrenaline is the hormone and neurotransmitter responsible for the heightened senses in fight-or-flight responses. It increases oxygenated blood flow and releases stored glucose to increase focus, strength, and speed.

Along with increased mental focus, caffeine taken pre-work has been clinically shown to enhance strength and endurance performance in high-intensity exercise.

Benefits of Caffeine Anhydrous

Anhydrous means without water. Caffeine anhydrous is derived by isolating and dehydrating the caffeine contained in natural caffeine sources. As pure caffeine, it is easier to determine the exact dosage and conveniently package it into pills and powders.

How L-Theanine Works in the Brain

L-Theanine is a non-protein amino acid found in certain plants, especially green tea. It has a similar chemical structure to the neurotransmitter glutamine and passes the blood-brain barrier within 30 minutes of ingestion. Researchers believe L-Theanine increases the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA and neuromodulators serotonin and dopamine to relay neuron signals in a calm and relaxed manner.

My high school-aged daughter deals with extreme anxiety. After researching the calming effect of L-Theanine, we decided to see if it could provide some relief. What a difference it has made for her!

She has chosen to take L-Theanine (150 mg) when she feels highly anxious. Within fifteen minutes, she reports feeling a descending calmness. The things that were threatening to overwhelm her dropped to a mild annoyance.

Research indicates daily use of L-Theanine (200 mg) promotes better sleep, helps reduce stress-related symptoms, and improves cognition.

Benefits of Adding L-Theanine to Caffeine

Taking L-Theanine with caffeine reduces the jitters associated with caffeine use alone to improve attention, focus, and motivation. Research shows using L-Theanine with caffeine may improve cognitive performance, as shown in a clinical trial involving attention switching and memory tasks.

After reading clinical research concerning the benefit of adding L-Theanine to caffeine for highly anxious students before test-taking, we decided to try that out for my daughter, too. She reports feeling highly focused but calm during tests and that the combination enhances her working memory and recall. The combination increases her confidence to work through difficult situations in an organized manner.

The effect has been so startling that she now takes caffeine with L-Theanine before any AP test, standardized test, or dance audition.

Panax Ginseng’s Effect on the Body

Panax ginseng studies show it has a highly consistent ability to increase acute cognitive functioning. Scientists theorize that Panax ginseng stimulates the system to reduce mental fatigue through its glycaemic properties (how it affects blood glucose levels).

A study of healthy volunteers found a single dose of 200 mg of Panax ginseng may increase mental performance by reducing fatigue in sustained cognitive activity.

Another study showed short term use of Panax ginseng may improve mood and aspects of working memory when taken at 200 mg or 400 mg doses.

A long-term study indicates maximum benefits of Panax ginseng are associated with short-term use. Participants demonstrated improved social, mental health, and cognitive functioning at four weeks of daily use (200 mg). At eight weeks, the improvements had not continued, suggesting the body may build a tolerance to Panax ginseng.

Ginseng with Caffeine for Athletic Performance

A 2011 study indicates using Panax ginseng with caffeine may increase athletic endurance, especially in hot, humid conditions. Vitals and metabolic markers appeared similar in the double-blind randomized study. However, the caffeine-Panax ginseng participants lasted longer on the treadmill.

Increase Your Performance with Thrivous Surge

Thirvous Surge is designed for occasional use to promote a clear, calm, focused, and energized state. It is the perfect product for times when you need exceptional performance. When you have an important task or event in front of you, trust Thrivous Surge to help you accomplish it in a calm and focused style.

In addition, Thrivous color codes Surge with orange carmine, so you can’t mix it up with other supplement products. The orange capsules are a reminder that it is a stimulant. It will keep you awake and alert for up to six hours after ingestion.

Given the nature of caffeine and Panax ginseng, Thrivous Surge works best when used intermittently. The body naturally builds a tolerance to caffeine, requiring higher dosages to experience the same results. To break a caffeine tolerance, simply stop using it for a few weeks.

Overusing caffeine can cause anxiety, insomnia, jitters, nausea, headache, and a fast heart rate.
