Fact: living a high-performance lifestyle can be exhausting.
Trying to climb the career ladder or run a business, achieve PBs in the gym, maintain a healthy diet, and keep some semblance of social life can feel stressful, to say the least.
Being in a constant state of stress has a physical toll on the body. Chronic stress triggers the production of cortisol, commonly known as the stress hormone. In small doses, cortisol can play a role in protecting our bodies and keeping us healthy. When cortisol levels are consistently high however, we can start to see symptoms like weight gain (especially around the torso), breakouts, muscle weakness, and headaches.
It’s not just our bodies that are affected, but our mental state - think fatigue, brain fog, and a sense of overwhelming or anxiety.
Bluenesse®, commonly known as Lemon Balm.
This revolutionary, cortisol-lowering herb can help you stay sharp and keep you cool under pressure, as well as helping to protect the body against the physical effects of stress.
When it comes to mental clarity and performance, Bluenesse can help you stay on top of your game. Not only has it been found to have a positive effect on memory, but it may also assist with mental focus and cognitive performance. In short, it can help you to prepare for whatever life throws at you.
When you’re leading a busy, active lifestyle, one of the biggest challenges is winding down from a state of heightened pressure. This feeling of being constantly ‘wired’ can make it challenging to sleep, leading to a cycle of fatigue and overstimulation that’s detrimental to rest and recovery.
Bluenesse® has the power to break that cycle.
In fact, one study showed that when healthy subjects were given a dose of Lemon Balm, they had significantly increased self-ratings of calmness after a controlled stress test and reduced self-ratings of alertness. Interestingly, they also found a significant increase in the speed of mathematical processing, with no reduction inaccuracy.
Another study that examined subjects with anxiety found that a dose of Lemon Balm was able to reduce anxiety as well as help to combat anxiety-related symptoms, including insomnia, eating problems, and fatigue.
Before you go looking in the back garden at home, this is not your average herb. We’ve harnessed a dose of Bluenesse® into our Clean Coffee TX100 to enhance the focus-boosting effects of caffeine while helping you to take the edge off your high-pressure lifestyle.
