NeuraVie: Why Natural Brain Health Supplements are Better for Your Overall Health – New U Life
Energy drinks have become increasingly popular these days among young people, with a study showing 43% of 13-15-year old’s having tried them (1). These types of drinks can also affect a student’s ability to study or stay awake for a brief time, but they are not good for the brain or body long-term. Research shows around this age, energy drinks can also cause heart palpitations, among other things.
And while there are many long-term consequences affecting teenagers and college-aged students, energy drinks are also harmful for people of any age. This is because energy drinks have high levels of sugar, vitamins, and herbal substances, that when combined, are shown to cause heart problems and other health issues. A certified rheumatologist shared in one article, that sometimes even healthy 30-40-year old’s around who have energy drinks (due to ‘megadoses of caffeine and other stimulants’) end up hospitalized for strokes or brain hemorrhages.
Many emerging brain health supplements have caffeine as an ingredient. While a moderate amount of caffeine has been proven to be okay, it may lead to caffeine dependence which has its own symptoms of withdrawal and fatigue. In one study, Caffeine “can influence objective and perceived cognitive performance by increasing alertness and wakefulness”(2). Another study shows that “when a single dose of 300 mg is administered, caffeine can increase anxiety and tension”(3) .
NeuraVie is a natural, caffeine-free nootropic, or brain health supplement. It’s meant to maintain cognitive function by targeting the 6 pillars of brain health: focus, memory, learning, accuracy, concentration, and reasoning.
