Patented ingredients are taking the industry by storm and for good reason – they have research backing their effectiveness, are trusted, and they actually work. Everyone from professional athletes, to fitness and bodybuilding competitors, all the way down to the recreational exerciser is looking for an edge to take their training and results to the next level. A new ingredient that has scratched their itch is SerinAid®.
SerinAid is a patented Phosphatidylserine (PS) chemical used to help boost both mental and physical performance. While SerinAid has been shown to help reduce perceived stress levels, the benefits run much deeper than that.
Do you know someone who is extremely sedentary, and you’ve noticed that both mentally and physically they are starting to regress? Their mind isn’t as sharp, they have a hard time remembering things, and their body just doesn’t work like it used to? It’s quite common. The key is to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs, provide it with activity to keep the muscles stimulated to prevent them from atrophying, and provide the body with the supplements it needs to keep your brain and body functioning optimally.
Stress is a major reason that we all tend to break down over time. The constant battling of free radicals and stressors can take its toll on both muscle and brain cells. Stress can cause a significant increase in cortisol – a stress hormone. When cortisol levels rise, it can cause you to gain weight, store excess body fat, disrupt your sleep patterns, decrease your mental and physical performance, increase your blood pressure, zap your energy levels, and put you in a poor mood. Sound fun? It’s not, and that’s why it’s so important to minimize the effects and keep your cortisol and stress levels in check.
If you want to take things to a deeper level, SerinAid aids in relaying messages from cell to cell. It also helps not only remove waste from the cells but also helps useful nutrients make their way into the cells to support their health and optimal functioning.
The great thing about SerinAid is that it can truly be used by anyone and everyone so long as it’s cleared by your doctor and doesn’t interfere with any medications you may be on. From a mental and physical standpoint, SerinAid is an extremely useful and powerful ingredient which when supplemented with can bring you many benefits.
SerinAid has been shown to help decrease both mental and physical stress while aiding in keeping your cortisol levels in a normal and healthy range. According to Chemi Nutra, the manufacturer of SerinAid, they have published on their website that some of the main benefits of supplementing with an efficacious dose of this powerful ingredient can:
From the benefits above, it’s easy to see that SerinAid can help a wide variety of demographics. Even those who don’t exercise at all can experience a boost in mental performance, mood, and a decrease in stress.
That being said, if you exercise regularly, SerinAid can be extremely advantageous. For instance, when you put it all together and think about how the benefits of its use coincide with your training program, that’s where the real eye-opening magic happens.
When you exercise (resistance training or cardiovascular activity), you need to be in a state of absolute focus. Lack of focus can get you hurt or injured. The focus and cognitive benefits from the use of SerinAid can help you become more aware of yourself, your spatial awareness, and how your muscles are being stimulated (concentric and eccentric movement). Think of this benefit during resistance training and you have a fantastic mind-muscle connection to help fully contract the muscles being targeted and aid in effectively breaking down muscle fibers. Intra- and post-workout you also get the recovery benefits to help you push harder in the gym and recover faster following those intense bouts of exercise.
Athletes can benefit just as much from this ergogenic aid and SerinAid can provide them with an edge over the competition. The ability to think more clearly, concentrate fully, recall information, and pull from an enhanced memory can provide you with a leg up on the opposing team or players. Additionally, the fact that you can reduce your stress level can allow you to play with a level-head and not be as anxious during competition. This can go a long way, especially with sports like golf where nerves can affect your swing and play.
If you’re looking for cognitive benefits only, you can take your daily dose of SerinAid at any point during the day. The key is to remain consistent and take it every day to get the most benefits from its use.
That being said, do you find it hard to sleep at night? If so, it would be best to take your daily dose of SerinAid at night as it can help decrease your cortisol levels, help you relax, and give you a better opportunity to get a good night’s rest.
Should you plan on implementing SerinAid into your training protocol, it is best to take it before your workout to help attain the enhancements in recovery (both during and post-workout), mind-muscle connection, focus and drive, as well as supporting your efforts with increasing lean muscle mass. On non-training days, you may take your daily dose whenever you wish.
