Can an Energy Drink Improve Your Performance
Today, people juggle work, family, school and other activities and are looking for any help they can get in meeting the challenges that life throws their way. Unfortunately, most energy drinks rely on huge amounts of caffeine which can cause jitteriness, nausea, heart palpitations or worse, not to mention the "crash" you experience when the caffeine wears off. Little wonder then that people are increasingly looking for a healthy drink that delivers more energy without relying on caffeine and without the crash.
A California company has seemingly developed a product that does just that, and a lot more.
The product, called FRS, was originally developed by a group of scientists as a fatigue-fighting health drink meant for high-performance athletes.
FRS actually stands for Free Radical Scavenger. Free Radicals are unstable molecules that move freely through the body and bond with other molecules in healthy cells, damaging chromosomes, enzymes, cell membranes and mitochondria through oxidization (the same process that makes iron rust) and resulting in decreased energy levels, accelerated aging and decreased mental performance.
FRS contains Quercetin, a powerful energy-boosting antioxidant found in the skins of grapes, apples and vegetables that has known anti-inflammatory effects and helps extend the body's natural energy. Additionally, FRS's patented formula of highly concentrated Quercetin and green tea extracts promotes thermogenesis, which increases the metabolic rate and helps the body burn excess carbohydrates and fat.
The company offers its patented energy-boosting formula in a variety of low-calorie product formats including drinks, drink concentrate and chews, all in a variety of flavors.
FRS has been proven to significantly boost athletes' performance, but recently, researchers conducted another clinical study with even more interesting results. FRS and a non-Quercetin placebo were consumed daily by two groups of workers at a university over a 3-week period. At the end of the study, the group that received the FRS with Quercetin reported a significant improvement in their level of work performance and their ability to concentrate. They also reported reduced fatigue and reduced feelings of frustration compared to the placebo group.
A low-calorie energy drink that doesn't rely on caffeine, doesn't produce a "crash" and may actually improve mental performance - sounds almost too good to be true.
The company is so confident that it works; they're currently
offering new customers a 2-week free trial of the product. They say
they're able to do this because so many people who try the product
get sold on its benefits and add it to their daily healthy
