What is C-STIM?
C-STIM is a collective product made of top quality, powerful ingredients that produce a stimulatory effect on the body which is designed to promote energy output, focus, and blood flow. The ingredients in C-STIM are a combination of the strongest stimulant ingredients legally available.
Key benefits of C-STIM
Some of the primary benefits associated with C-STIM include:
Promotes alertness and wakefulness
Because of the powerful, all-natural stimulatory ingredients found within C-STIM, one serving will provide users with a temporary boost in alertness and wakefulness, helping users to wake up and get in the zone.
Improved cognitive performance
C-STIM not only provides energy for the body, it also provides energy for the mind as well. The key nootropical ingredients found within C-STIM have been proven to enhance cognitive function and performance, helping to increase mental focus and alertness.
Helps relieve the symptoms of stress
C-STIM contains potent ingredients such as Rhodiola, which is used in herbal medicines as an adaptogen to help relieve the symptoms of stress. This not only helps to get you into the right frame of mind to train, it also helps lower cortisol levels, which can be detrimental to your training. The amino acid L-Theanine has also been found to provide a series of mental health benefits as it increases the amount of alpha brainwaves within the brain, which in turn has been found to reduce stress.
Another reason to utilize C-STIM is the fact that it contains ingredients such as Maritime Pine, which are enriched with Nitric Oxide. Nitric Oxide acts as a vasodilator, causing the blood vessels to expand. This allows more blood to be carried around the body. More blood means more oxygen and more nutrients for the cells in the muscles, which means a greater athletic output.
Great source of antioxidants
C-STIM is enriched with powerful antioxidants which help to protect the cells against oxidative stress and damage caused by free-radicals and harmful toxins in the body.
Other benefits include:
- Impressive muscle pumps
- Temporary increases in physical energy
- Temporary increases in mental energy
- Better focus
- Improved athletic performance
- Protects the cells and strengthens the immune system
- Relieves the symptoms of stress
- Improved circulation
- Combats physical and mental fatigue
What are the primary ingredients in C-STIM and how do they work?
C-STIM is enriched with a series of potent and natural ingredients that have been proven to benefit the mind and the body.
Caffeine functions as a potent stimulant in the body and is widely found in pre-workout supplements and fat burning supplements. Caffeine is a naturally-occurring compound which also happens to be an Alkaloid. It is found naturally within coffee and tea plants. Within these plants, caffeine actually serves as a natural defence mechanism to ward off insects and bugs that would eat the leaves of the plant. It functions as a potent pesticide in nature. Don’t worry though, because caffeine is non-toxic to humans and is completely safe. Not only is it safe in the right doses, but it also happens to be very beneficial as it stimulates the nervous system. Once consumed, caffeine gets to work in as little as 15 minutes, where it serves as a powerful stimulant to boost energy levels. It also has nootropical benefits as it has been found to provide significant protection for the brain. Caffeine functions as a mental stimulant by suppressing a neurotransmitter which is known as adenosine. Throughout the day, adenosine levels rise and rise, until eventually they peak. Once this happens, your body begins to feel tired and you struggle to keep your eyes open. Caffeine basically competes with adenosine and stops it building up so quickly, so you feel more mentally and physically alert.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that is non-essential. As it is non-essential the body can synthesize it naturally, although studies have found that increasing your L-Theanine intakes can have a number of positive benefits on the brain and body. This amino acid is naturally found within the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s because that is the scientific name for tea plants. Experts have found that L-Theanine supplementation can help to reduce drowsiness and stress by boosting mental alertness in the process. As you can imagine, this is very conducive when it comes to exercising and working out. This amino acid helps to promote brainwaves, alpha brainwaves to be exact, which play essential roles in relaxation and mental alertness.
Choline Alfoscerate is a water-soluble nutrient that is molecularly very similar to B vitamins. In fact, it is considered a member of the B-complex vitamin family. It serves as a precursor for Acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter. Choline is also important for the cells as it helps to protect the cell membranes. Choline has been found to provide significant nootropical benefits for the brain and it is currently being trialled as a potential medication for the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. In the brain it aids with the synthesis and conversion of neurotransmitters as it easily crosses the blood/brain barrier and makes its way into the CNS.
Rhodiola Rosea is a natural herb which grows in the wild in Northern Europe and parts of Asia where the weather is cooler. It is a herb which provides a number of mental health benefits, but it is the fact that it boosts ATP production, that helps make C-STIM such a potent supplement. The more ATP the body produces, the more energy you have, and the more energy you have, the harder and longer you can train.
This root extract has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years and is still very popular to this day. Ashwagandha root is an adoptogen, making it great for the brain, especially when dealing with stress. The root actively lowers cortisol levels, which not only helps to prevent stress, it also enhances mental focus whilst you train, plus it prevents muscle catabolism which can be brought on by increased cortisol levels. The less of the stress hormone, cortisol, you have in your body, the clearer you can think, and the easier you’ll find it to build muscle and burn fat.
Maritime Pine, also known as Pinus Pinaster, or Pine Stem Bark Extract, is a compound which provides very powerful antioxidant-like properties in the body. It provides substantial benefits for the circulatory system as it is enriched with flavonoids known as catechins which stimulate the natural production of Nitric Oxide. As you know, Nitric Oxide provides impressive muscle pumps, increased energy, improved vascularity, and greater oxygen and nutrient transportation around the body. For the brain, this is very important because it means more oxygen and nutrients can be transported to the brain, helping to keep it healthy and mentally sharp. Before hitting the gym to workout, this is very useful.
Grape Seed extract
Grape Seed extract, as the name implies, is derived from natural grape seeds. It is considered by many health experts and officials to be a wonder ingredient responsible for promoting a vast array of health benefits within the human body. Grape seed extract is enriched with a wide range of antioxidants and nutrients, including flavonoids, OPCs, omega 6 fatty acids, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Not only does grape seed extract help to strengthen the immune system, but the antioxidants it contains also help to keep the cells healthy and ticking over properly, including those in the brain. As a bonus, it also helps to keep the skin looking and feeling healthy and youthful.
Finally, the last ingredient which we will be looking at today is Panax Ginseng. Panax Ginseng grows in parts of Europe and Asia. Panax Ginseng is naturally enriched with ginsenosides, which have been found to stimulate and inhibit certain parts of the central nervous system. Many people supplement with Panax Ginseng to help improve their mood and their mental sharpness. Proven to provide substantial mental health benefits, panax ginseng helps improve your mood and enhance your mental alertness – perfect for when you’re struggling to get ‘In the Zone’ before training.
