So I and my wife are performance coaches for tech scale-up leaders and recently my wife started to struggle with brain fog. She had no energy in the afternoons and after giving all to her clients, by the end of the day.. really around 4pm, wanted to go to bed.
We did throid testing, hormone testing, menopause testing, heavy metals hair strand testing, stool tests, various scans,
and normal health testing as she is vegetarian so thought it could be iron. All came back very good. Which was actually a little frustrating... We also kept a food log and followed intolerance tests and removed all sugar.
Still, low energy and with business being busy, this was starting to become a concern.
We take a health stack from BS as well as a performance stack which we adjust depending on life. Thought we would try Mucuna after reading up on it...
Literally 1 capsule, not 2 on the same day, she had energy, focus and a good mood ALL DAY. We checked on day 2 and the same. Had a break for day 3 after reading a Dave Asprey blog about Mucuna and how you should use when needed, other wise your body can get used to it, so now we use it on big training and coaching days.
It's honestly amazing. Whatever the brain fog and lack of energy was, it's lifted it. No jitters which we don't drink more than 1 coffee a day so would feel, no feeling down which alongside high levels of gabapentin (for nerve entrapment) is a daily challenge and amazing deep sleep. The first night she had just over 8 hours with 1.5 hours in deep sleep, waking up ready to go. It's a great side effect! Oh and with higher moods, hello bedroom time ;)
Alongside the health stack of D3 and K2, Magnesium, C, Tumeric, B12 and A, and a performance stack which we pick and mix depending on the month of Lions Main (when needed), Reishi, NMN, ashwagandha (when needed for good sleep and focus as well as adapting to high stress times), Rhodiola, Alpha GPC, Tonga Ali (for the gym) and Resveratol (pairs with NMN for cell reproduction). We also take Collagen for gut health with glutamine which we pop into our daily coffees. Of course probiotics and minerals (salts and iodine etc). I can now say, until any peri menopauses hit, we have finally found the balance and knocked those tired days on the head. So, back to performance.
That and healthy organic real food (it isn't as expensive as you may think) daily walks, filtered water (we use reverse osmosis), less screen time, and intense strength workouts twice a week via 10x(amazing gains and body shape changes). We both have reduced our biological age by almost 10 years each! I'm 37 but after testing, apparently, 27 and feel loads better than when I was 27 as I didn't prioirtise my health. So, Dave Asprey and David Sinclair, watch out LOL :-D
Honestly, we can't rate BS highly enough, and this supplement! If you are into biohacking and need that boost here and there. Take it! It's better than blue methylene (smurf tongue) and loads cheaper! You also don't look like an idiot. Just stage it so you really feel the benefit when it's needed.
