Did you know that there are more herbal supplements than just caffeine which can help increase you energy and boost your brain power? Perhaps you need that extra focus when you’re sitting an exam, running a race, or closing a deal at work. Find out about these 5 superfood ingredients, how they work and how you can conveniently supplement your diet with them on the days you need to really have a standout performance.
Research suggests that caffeine may increase reaction speed, reduce feelings of fatigue and enhance mental performance. Caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain called Adenosine. This increases the firing of neurons and the concentration of neurotransmitters (chemicals responsible for carrying messages between the brain and different nerve cells in the body) like dopamine and norepinephrine (chemical released from the sympathetic nervous system in response to stress, that plays a central role in controlling alertness, rest cycles, attention and memory in the central nervous system).
Shine+ Drink to boost your brain power!
Shine+ is a formulated focus drink that is packed with each of these 5 ingredients. Perfect for those days where you need a boost in energy and concentration.
Not only does drinking Shine help you perform, but for every Shine sold, they donate one day of clean drinking water to someone in need. What a great initiative! It’s great to see companies doing their bit to help reduce the shocking fact that 1 in 5 children under 5 die from waterborne diseases. Shine have partnered with Water is Life who have developed a portable water purifier for easy delivery to areas in need, dubbed the Water is Life Purification Straw. Cleverly constructed, the Filter Straw is capable of turning any water source into clean, drinkable water! You can read more about this on their website.
Code to double the donation
So, a Shine+ 7PACK is a day’s worth of clean drinking water for 7 people. However, if you enter the discount code ‘SHINE+WATER‘ at checkout you’ll get 5% off your order, and Shine will double their donation and provide clean drinking water to 2 people for every bottle you purchase.
