A while back I wrote a blog post about about how I was experiencing daily symptoms of brain fog. You can read it HERE. Over the last couple months I’ve been experiencing extreme fatigue in the afternoon hours, horrible air allergies, poor sleeping habits and decreased strength and stamina in the gym. A lot of this stems from when I got severely sick last October but even though my stomach is better, the other issues have been causing all sorts of problems. I’ve tried medication (which I normally don’t like doing), local honey and sleep medication. The medication worked for a little while, I never really gave the honey time to work and the sleep medication helped a ton but after four months I started experiencing vivid dreams and the side effect of fatigue the following day. I stopped taking those about three weeks ago.
Last week I met with the owners of Nutra Summa who asked for a meeting with me in regards to a discussion about their gluten-free products. We had a great meeting and I also toured their lab in Phoenix where I was extremely impressed with how they test for heavy metals and gluten. I feel extremely comfortable with their products because of how important they consider food allergies. During the tour they highlighted where they test for gluten, the employees knowledge and quality control to prevent possible cross-contamination.
After the tour we sat down and talked about my concerns. So they gave me product to help with fatigue, brain fog, allergies, sleeping and strength/muscle recovery. They told me that it would take about 2-3 weeks to really start working but I have to say I’m impressed with what I’m seeing in the first 5 days. Here’s a summary of the products that I’m taking:
- Amino Clear – Amino Acid Supplement…Recover during your workout, not after
- Dragon’s Blood Herbal Supplement…Supports balanced blood flow for cardiovascular health
- Summa Lean – Metabolic Support…Helps mobilize stored fat so it can be used as fuel
- Pea Protein – Dietary Supplement…Complete protein from 100% vegan sources
- ZMA Plus – Zinc, Magnesium and B6 Support…Increases muscle strength
- Digest Complex – Dietary Supplement…Support digestive health
After the first 5 days I’ve had no afternoon fatigue, no need for naps, no brain fog and my energy and mental clarity is much improved. I’ve also noticed increased strength in the gym that I started losing last October. Most importantly, I’ve been able to shut my brain off at night and sleep a minimum of 6 hours straight without waking up. As stated earlier Nutra Summa said I wouldn’t really start feeling the ultimate effects for 2-3 weeks so I will be writing another post at that time with my findings. Also, I was on the phone with them today and they will be sending me a product to help out with my air allergies as well.
I’m extremely excited about how I’m feeling and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in the next couple of weeks. If you have any questions about the products please comment on the post and I will do my best to answer your questions.
