Introduction to Performance Lab Energy and my Review
Today I’m going to talk about Performance Lab Energy, a supplement that is supposed to give you energy without stimulants and act as a nootropic.
When We talk nootropics we automatically zero in on our brains because that is what nootropics deal with and often quite well. We have to remember and not forget that our body and our mind are all part of one big, complicated, but a fantastic system. Each part relies on the other for our bodies to work properly, and Performance Lab Energy addresses both.
Performance Lab is a great company producing some great supplement stacks and Performance Lab Energy is one of them. This supplement is designed to increase cell energy and vitality, and even burn fat.
To start, I always probe into the ingredients to see if they are top quality, the amounts are high enough, and they are the right ones.
The company behind this stack is Opti Nutra, a well-known company out of the UK that has a top-notch reputation. They use what they call Biogenesis to make sure their products are safe and clean for their users. The result is not only a potent product but an eco-friendly product.
They have no additives, no soy, no allergens, certainly no synthetic additives and no banned substances. They are vegan-friendly which grabs an increasingly large part of the population others don’t.
This is Opti Nutra’s patented technology they use to ‘clean’ up their ingredients and to enhance the potency and safety of their ingredients.
I think this is one of the great things that sets Opti Nutra apart than many others that don’t take the care Opti Nutra does in producing their products.
Some people have complained that the levels of some of the ingredients are lower than other products from other companies. The simple answer is that they use the more potent version of those ingredients and often don’t need the level you see in those other brands.
Now, we need to check out the ingredients to see if they stand up to what Opti Nutra says.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a well-known component of nootropic stacks and what we know about it makes it a great addition to Performance Lab Energy.
Acetyl-L-carnitine is another amino acid we need to look at. It is produced in our bodies and its role is to produce energy and is one good reason that is a staple supplement for many people.
Let’s go further.
It’s a precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and that in itself puts it in the category of a nootropic.
It can help us by enhancing our focus, and with our general overall cognition. It is good at fighting both mental fatigue and physical fatigue and has the potential to help with our cardiovascular health.
When exercising, ALCAR, as it is also called, can help us sustain our muscular energy longer and at the same time prompt our bodies to burn fat-stored energy. It has great benefits for the elderly but is also very good for a young and healthy user.
R-Lipoic Acid (as Microencapsulated Bio-Enhanced®)
I haven’t written about this one before, and haven’t seen it in any of the stacks I have reviewed, but it certainly is a welcome ingredient here and for many reasons.
What I like first about it is that it stops the body from creating any new fat cells and acts as an appetite suppressant. I like this because I’m an energetic guy who loves his Crossfit and I don’t need those fat cells:). Being an appetite suppressant means that any foolish between meal eating will be kept to a minimum.
Most products that include this ingredient use the inferior version which may cause some minor side effects. Performance Lab Energy uses the Bio-Enhanced® R-lipoic acid brand which is more stable and bioavailable than the normal lipoic acid supplement.
Researchers have discovered that it is also an essential coenzyme playing a vital role in mitochondrial electron transport reactions involved in converting glucose into ATP )Adenosine triphosphate) to produce energy.
Coenzyme Q10 (as MicroActive® Q10)
First, let’s talk about CoEnzymeQ10 alone. It is very much responsible for most of our body’s energy production. Good so far in this nootropic supplement. It’s kind of a spark that starts the cell’s energy cycle. It is also extremely important in the mitochondria to function at their best.
Have you heard the word ubiquinone? This refers to ubiquitous which means ‘found everywhere’. CoQ10 is part of the ubiquinone group of compounds so you get the picture I hope.
As we get older, the naturally occurring levels of CoQ10 start to decline and supplementing starting from the early 30s for peak energy levels is suggested. That is pretty early but makes total sense.
Supplementation is even more important if you take cholesterol-lowering drugs as taking these may cause you to be deficient of it.
Performance Lab Energy’s MicroActive® branded Q10 has much better bioavailability and a longer release, increasing CoQ10 levels for a longer period of time.
PQQ (as BioPQQ®)
PQQ is a micronutrient that acts as an antioxidant in your body that protects your cells and mitochondria from the effects of damaging free radicals.
Taking PQQ may be able to optimize the health and function of your entire central nervous system (CNS), improving your energy levels, memory and higher cognitive function.
Black Pepper Extract (as BioPerine®)
We all know what this is. It’s probably on your kitchen table or the counter next to the salt. We use it to spice up our food every day. It comes from black pepper.
In this case, we don’t care to spice up our food, we want a nutrient in the pepper called Piperine or Bioperine where Bioperine is Piperine’s trademark name.
In the case of Mind Lab Energy, Bioperine increases the level of absorption of nutrients in your body. What it really means is that you can get more from the nutrients you consume.
What Does Clean Label Mean?
I bring this up now because it is talked about a lot when looking at the Performance Lab Products and is what makes their products above the rest in terms of the clean versions and premium.
They are free of any banned substances, GMO, soy, etc as I said at the top and their clean label put that all out there for us to see.
None known. These ingredients are safe to take individually and when taken as part of Performance Lab Mind, they combine to make a very safe side affect free product.
However, if you decide to take more than the recommended dose you may find yourself with an upset stomach and or a headache. Don’t exceed the does and feel good!
- The ingredients are all of the premium quality and high potency.
- Clean and safe. Performance Lab Energy’s has clean capsules and safe ingredients.
- You can only purchase them from the Performance Lab website. They are not available on Amazon or places like eBay.
Who is Performance Lab Energy For?
Well, if you need a little more energy but aren’t interested in stimulants like me, then like me you may want to give it a try.
If you are a fitness lover like me, you may want it as well. Have long days where you want that extra energy? You may want this as well.
Do you want a very clean and safe product that will do what it says and offer no negative side effects in return, you may be someone who would benefit.
You can buy it on their website through this link here or by clicking on the bottle to the right.
To Wrap it Up
If you are looking for a bit of energy that doesn’t come from caffeine, Mind Lab Energy does work and work well.
They have all natural enhanced, safer and more potent that ensures you that you are getting a high-quality product that will deliver you the energy you want.
Don’t just look at this supplement as an energy booster. It isn’t just that. Just look at ingredients like Acetyl-L-Carnitine. This has many great nootropic benefits apart from energy.
ATP energy plays many parts in keeping our brains healthy.
If you would like a relatively new nootropic that gives you a 3-hour boost of energy with no crash, check out my article on Dynamine.
