Niacin (Niacinamide - Vitamin B3)
Vitamin-B3 helps to improve blood circulation and is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects on the body. A major medical benefit of vitamin B3 is the elevation of good (HDL) cholesterol levels. Higher HDL levels significantly reduces the risk of heart disease. Ingested Vitamin-B3 has also been useful for treating acne. Niacin can be found naturally occurring in red meat, yeast, eggs, milk, green vegetables and beans.
B vitamins help the body with conversion of carbohydrates into glucose (fuel), used by the body for making energy and supporting metabolism. Vitamin B6 is specifically useful for neurotransmitter support, chemical signals that carry information between nerve cells. Vitamin B6 assists the body in making the hormones norepinephrine and serotonin, positively affecting mood stabilization, and melatonin, supporting the internal biological clock.
Vitamin B12, as with other B vitamins, plays an important role in metabolizing protein and fat. Vitamin-B12 helps the body cultivate new red blood cells and maintain the central nervous system. Many people over 50 years old are unable to absorb vitamin B12 from food sources.
Taurine supplementation can relieve symptoms associated with epilepsy, anxiety, depression and hyperactivity due to deficiency. Taurine can be found in eggs, meat and seafood. The heart and retina contain high concentrations of taurine as well. Taurine helps protect the heart and exerts anti-inflammatory effects on the body.
Caffeine is used daily by millions of people around the world to increase alertness and wakefulness. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, increasing wakefulness, alleviating fatigue, while improving concentration and focus. Some people are more sensitive to caffeine than are others. If your not sure about your caffeine tolerance, we recommend using only half of an E6 Energy Shot to assess your tolerance. Too much caffeine, too quickly can cause the unwanted side effects associated with caffeine. Most people metabolize caffeine 4 - 6 hours after ingestion. Our energy shots contain 235mg of caffeine per bottle.
Research shows that supplementing D-Glucuronolactone assists the body's own natural defense mechanism to fight carcinogens and their effects. D-Glucuronolactone is mostly prevalent in apples, grapefruits, oranges, and cruciferous vegetables. This natural, non-toxic compound is produced by all mammals in small amounts, including human beings.
Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid, the body requires it for healthy functioning, but cannot manufacture it. Phenylalanine must be acquired from food sources or supplementation. L-Phenylalanine, found in proteins naturally, is used to support mood, memory and alertness.

L-Tyrosine serves as a mood enhancer while combating the negative side effects of stimulants by lowering anxiety. During times of stress, L-Tyrosine helps regulate blood pressure, memory, and performance. L-Tyrosine is the precursor to several important neurotransmitters.
