Quercitin - The Incredible Antioxidant!
Q uses quercetin, a potent natural antioxidant, to deliver energy at the cellular level. Quercetin is found in small amounts in fruits, vegetables and grains. Quercetin shares the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties of other antioxidants, but studies have also shown that it can provide energy by increasing the body's natural ability to convert calories into energy. In other words, instead of simply adding more calories, Q helps you burn the calories you already have more efficiently. That means you have more energy that you come by honestly. It isn't a quick fix or a short-cut; it is a healthy choice for better energy.
Quercetin works at a cellular level by increasing the production of mitochondria. If you remember your high school biology, you'll remember that mitochondria are the "power-packs" of our cells. More mitochondria means your body naturally has more power. More power from your own cells means more honest energy to make the most of whatever you are doing.
Panax ginseng is one of the most highly regarded herbal medicines from Asia. The term 'Panax' is derived from the Greek 'panacea' which means 'all healing'. Proven to improve reaction times and mental awareness, ginseng is regularly taken to increase energy and to treat many ailments including fatigue and inflammation. In addition to adding energy, ginseng delays the onset of muscle fatigue allowing the body to go further in workouts
Like ginseng, rhodiola is an adaptogen. An adaptogen increases the body's resistance to stress, anxiety, trauma and fatigue. Rhodiola enhances the body's physical and mental work capacity and productivity, with actions related to strengthening the nervous system, fighting depression, enhancing immunity, elevating the capacity for exercise, enhancing memorization, improving energy levels, and possibly prolonging the life span. It is recommended to fight fatigue, improve sexual function and mental performance while increasing attention span, exercise ability, strength and mobility. Rhodiola has also been shown to improve memory function and the recovery of muscles after exercise.
Gingko biloba is another powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals in the body that cause damage to tissue and cells. Gingko biloba is the most frequently prescribed medicinal herb in Europe, with hundreds of studies reporting positive effects from taking ginkgo for both the prevention and treatment of various health complaints. By enhancing blood flow to the brain gingko biloba aids in cognitive function and memory. Research also suggests that gingko biloba extract prevents cholesterol from turning into plaque within arteries.
Derived from green tea extract, catechins are a powerful antioxidant that neutralize free radicals in the body that cause damage to tissue and cells. Catechins are also believed to support healthy weight management and are associated with a lower risk of cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. Catechins are recognized as having stimulant, astringent, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, thermogenic and anti-inflammatory properties
Also known as retinol, Vitamin A has antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body that cause damage to tissue and cells. It also supports eye function, helping your eyes adjust to changes in the brightness of light. In addition to its well known benefits for the skin, Vitamin A helps to maintain healthy epithelial cells (surface cells of many glands, organs, and the skin) and supports immunity by helping to facilitate effective barriers to infections
Also known as thiamin, Vitamin B1 is essential for muscular and cardiovascular function. Thiamin fights fatigue by helping your body convert blood sugar into energy. Thiamin keeps mucous membranes healthy and plays a role in the function of nerve cells, nerve tissue and nerve transmission.
Also known as riboflavin, Vitamin B2 works in conjunction with the other B vitamins to efficiently make energy from calories from fat, protein and carbohydrates. B2 also supports red cell production and contributes to good vision and healthy skin. B2 is necessary not only for growth but for continued healthy growth of skin, hair and nails. B2 participates in essential biochemical reactions, especially those that yield energy.
Also known as niacin, Vitamin B3 aids the function of the digestive system also contributes to the conversion of calories from fat, protein and carbohydrates into energy. High doses of Niacin have also been shown to reduce LDL ('bad') cholesterol and triglycerides while raising HDL ('good') cholesterol. Niacin promotes a normal appetite and healthy skin.
Also known as pyridoxine, Vitamin B6 works with folic acid to reduce a person's risk of heart attack. Like the other B vitamins, B6 also helps the body convert protein into energy. B6 promotes brain function and is necessary for the formation of hemoglobin and the growth of red blood cells.
Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is another antioxidant known to neutralize free radicals in the body that cause damage to tissue and cells. Vitamin C also helps strengthen the immune system, prevent cell damage and heal wounds. Vitamin C is also useful in helping the body properly absorb iron.
Vitamin D is critically important to help the body absorb and use calcium from food or supplements. Recent studies show that the majority of Canadians are deficient in Vitamin D. Vitamin D also prevents osteoporosis and helps in the formation of bones and teeth while supporting the function of muscles and nerves.
Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals in the body that cause damage to tissue and cells. Vitamin E also supports healthy circulatory function and assists in wound healing and blood clotting.
Electrolytes help to increase the absorption of fluids into the bloodstream. Electrolytes are salts that are naturally part of body fluids. If electrolytes are lost too quickly, the body does not have the ability to restore them as rapidly as they were lost. Introducing electrolytes back into the body helps keep dehydration from occurring, particularly during periods of intense exercise.
Q is designed to be as natural and healthy as possible. In addition to the Quercetin, great herbs and vitamins, Q contains less than 4 grams of natural cane sugar (that's 15 calories), natural flavours (derived from fruit), natural colours, stevia and a bit of citric acid to help with the flavor. That's it. No artificial preservatives, no additives, no artificial colors or flavors. We're not hiding sneaky caffeine with a fancy name (yeah, we're looking at you guarana), offering you an amino acid that is a major constituent of bile (hello taurine!) or using artificial sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame or saccharin (it's making a comeback). Q is just honest energy in a drink that's good for you.
