WHY WOULD I TAKE IT?
Ever get that feeling at the end of your workday where you’re wondering if you have the energy to even go to the gym? That’s where Specimen shines! Not only does it have enough caffeine to get you off the couch and in the car, but it also gives enough power to take you through your most strenuous workouts.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Specimen V2 works mostly by promoting hydration, vasodilation, and higher energy output. This works through the use of our comprehensive electrolyte blend in combination with osmolytic agents such as taurine, betaine, and glycerol.
HOW DO I TAKE IT?
Specimen is best taken 30-45 minutes prior to exercise. You can either take 1 scoop or 2 scoops dissolved into 16oz (500mL) of water, and mix vigorously!
WHY WOULD I TAKE IT?
Sometimes either excessive psychological stress or overtraining can cause an increase in a catabolic hormone, Cortisol. Cortisol can cause decrements in muscle tissue and also make the body more susceptible to storing fat. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can also cause alterations in mood or judgement. That’s why we’ve created Serenity - to dampen the effects of excessive cortisol and improve mood and sense of well-being.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Serenity works by modulating three separate mechanisms within the cortisol production pathway. The leading hypothesis on Phosphatidylserine is that it has an inhibitory effect on secretion of ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic hormone) - which actually stimulates cortisol production. Secondly, in an attempt to inhibit 11-beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase we’ve employed Quercetin and Magnolol to block this enzyme’s ability to convert cortisone into cortisol. Quercetin also utilizes a secondary mechanism that inhibits steroid 11β-hydroxylase, which is an enzyme that creates cortisol from 11-deoxycorticosterone. Then finally, we utilize Shoden®, a form of Ashwagandha with 35% Withanolide content to also support further stress reduction.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
Serenity is best taken approximately one hour before desired effect to relieve stress - 3 capsules per serving. Please note: do not exceed three doses in 24 hours.
