I have always bought my supplements from Healthspan in the past and even made a special visit to their shop when I was in Jersey. I take their Lipo Carn as I find it helps with digestion and stops bloating, and I also take their Peppermint Oil for the same reason. I used to also religiously take their Happy Days HTP tablets, which are a natural source of a substance that is converted into Serotonin in the body. When I was going through quite a 'down' period I found they made me feel much more able to cope with things and they even improved my sleep. They are also reported to help with migraines.
Because I love the brand so much I put myself forward to review one of their newer products; Energex Plus. Energex Plus has been designed to aid the strain that modern lifestyles put on our energy resources by providing a natural 'pick me up' that contains guarana, Panax ginseng, amino acids and the entire family of B vitamins. There is also 50mg of caffeine to give you a bit of 'get up and go'. The idea is that you take them whenever you need a bit of a boost, and you can take either one or two tablets a day.
I started using these a couple of weeks ago when I started walking the dog and running in the mornings. Because I have to get up at 6am to do this I usually awake feeling sluggish and still half asleep. I've been taking these as soon as I get up and they have me feeling raring to get out of the door. I don't take them at weekends or on mornings I'm not running because I don't feel I need them but they have become an invaluable part of my morning routine on my more active days. The caffeine in them is a lot less than a can of Red Bull so they don't leave me feeling wired during the day or with difficulty sleeping, it just feels enough to get me round the run and then ready to start the day. I actually had a real panic when I thought I'd lost my second sheet the other day as until I build up my stamina and energy levels through doing more exercise I'll be relying on these to get me out of bed and out of the door in the morning.
