Efficiency vs. Energy
The effect of maximizing efficiency for mental health.
Why have more energy?
Where the feeling of energy comes from
So what could we do better?
So how do we optimize our efficiency?
Finding balance with proper use
So then why do the Nootripure products contain caffeine if it is so bad? Well, caffeine isn’t bad. It is just a drug, with a particular function, neither good nor bad. In fact it has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for many thousands of years to help people with a variety of illnesses. But the key to using it as a tool to improve and heal the body rather than another drug to be abused is dependant on the circumstance and whether the drug is physiologically balanced or not. The side effects (effects that destroy the body and mind) of caffeine can be mitigated. The way we do it with the Nootripure products is to include magnesium to help keep the muscles from becoming damaged, L-theanine to keep the caffeine from over stimulating the neuroreceptors, and ashwagandha to keep the body from entering a “fight or flight” stress state. We use a multitude of other ingredients to further balance the caffeine’s affect on the body, but these are a few easy to understand examples.
So how do we know if the caffeine is helping us or harming us? Here is a simple test. After taking your energy supplement or Nootripure product, then ask yourself these questions:
- Do I feel energetic and like I want to get up and move around, or do I feel relaxed and peaceful like I am ready to meditate?
- Do I feel motivated to accomplish tasks, or do I feel simply “in the zone”?
- Does it feel like I am putting in a lot of rewarding effort into my actions, or do my efforts seem to come naturally and without much thought?
If ‘yes’ to the aforementioned option to any of these 3 questions, then the caffeine is abusing your body and mind. When thinking of creating mental health, think of what mental health looks like. What does mental health look like? We like to think of the ideal state achieved from the Nootripure products being that of a zen master. On one side of the spectrum, you have the wild-child who is energetic, motivated, achieving, and ready to get up, yell, swing their arms around, beat their chest, and do challenging things because they can. On the other side is a zen master who is calm, collected, patient, aware, humble, and yet ready to execute any performance of human talent with flawless mental clarity. The wild-child is energetic. The zen master is efficient. Both will accomplish the goal. Over time, using valuable resources from the body, one will end in mental illness, the other will end up more healthy. Now you get to choose which one you would like to be?
Nootripure is not in the energy business. Nootripure is a company for mental health; helping people undo the damage that was marketed to them by other companies who pride themselves on selling consumers “healthy” energy products. Many of our customers choose to pay a little extra for improving mental health only once they have burnt out on the energy drinks and lost their mental performance, but hopefully you will make the right choice before it gets to that point. If you do decide to make that choice, we are here to back you up and support you on your journey.
