The human brain is the most powerful "central processing unit (CPU)" in existence. E2^2 provides key nutrients to nourish the brain, enabling intense concentration and focus to support its complex processing abilities.* Additionally, E2^2 provides energy support, allowing you to tackle life's daily tasks and training regimens with vigor.* E2^2 contains all natural colors, flavors and sweeteners with no added sugar!
E2^2 (pronounced E2 Squared) provides key nutrients to nourish the brain, enabling intense concentration and focus to support its complex processing abilities.* Additionally, E2^2 provides energy support without the jitters, allowing you to tackle life's daily tasks and training regimens with focused vigor.* This is accomplished through a synergistic combination of Alpha-GPC + Huperzine A, along with Caffeine + L-Theanine. When paired together, this potent combination provides an energizing "E" effect much greater than its individual parts.* Appropriately, we named this phenomenon E2^2 for its ability to exponentiate (^) the power of energy.*
Caffeine has long been recognized for its ability to enhance cognitive processes such as alertness, reaction time, attention, and higher level brain function.* Along with its cognitive benefits, caffeine increases both endurance and anaerobic performance.*
L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid found in various teas. It has been shown to compliment the cognitive effects of caffeine, leading to enhanced word recognition, speed of numeric working memory, simple reaction time and task switching skills vs. consuming either alone.* Additionally, L-theanine reduces the jitters associated with caffeine use; allowing for a smooth, clean and focused energy.*
Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (Alpha-GPC)
Alpha-GPC supplies the body with choline, a precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which assists communication pathways within the nervous system. Research has shown that Alpha-GPC supplementation can lead to cognitive improvement in individuals with mild to moderate dementia.* Recent studies also suggest that supplementing with Alpha-GPC can enhance muscle force production as well as the body’s natural ability to oxidize, or "burn", body fat.*
Huperzine A works synergistically with Alpha-GPC to increase acetylcholine levels within the brain. It accomplishes this by blocking the actions of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme responsible for breaking down acetylcholine. Along with boosting acetylcholine levels, Huperzine A appears to be a neuroprotective agent.* Animal models have shown it to reduce oxidative stress as well as increase nerve growth factor (NGF) within the brain.*
No Added Sugar!
Sugar is sugar, and its excess in the diet is absolutely, unequivocally harmful to health. Whether refined or unrefined sugar — it doesn't matter. According to the FDA, experts suggest that, "For the average American, 16 percent of their total daily calories come from added sugars. The major sources are soda, energy and sports drinks, grain-based desserts, sugar-sweetened fruit drinks, dairy-based desserts and candy." The widespread health consequences of sugar intake are so alarming, that the FDA has finalized new changes for the Nutrition Facts Label which will require the amount of added sugars to be disclosed. E2^2, Orange Zest does NOT contain added sugar; it only contains naturally-occurring sugar.
No Artificial Colors, Flavors, or Sweeteners!
Sugars are not the only concern. Many companies use artificial sweeteners which also have numerous health concerns. Perhaps the most common artificial sweetener in the food and beverage industry is sucralose. Sucralose is a synthetic organochlorine sweetener that has been shown in clinical studies to alter the microbial composition in the gastrointestinal tract, reducing beneficial bacteria. Sucralose has also been shown to negatively alter glucose and insulin levels. E2^2, Orange Zest is sweetened with stevia leaf extract, a natural extract that is up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar. When directly compared to the artificial sweetener Aspartame, Stevia has been shown to reduce blood glucose spikes following a standardized meal.*
In addition, the food and supplement industry often uses synthetic food dyes (artificial color) to make beverages and food appear bright and bold. However, research strongly suggests an association between the ingestion of synthetic food dyes and attention deficit hyperactive disorders (ADHD).* Synthetic food dyes are made from petrochemicals and include FD&C Blue #1, Blue #2, Green #3, Red #3, Red#40, Yellow #5, and Yellow #6. E2^2, Orange Zest is proudly formulated using only ALL-NATURAL colors, flavors and sweeteners.
