The Overactive Brain

When facing a potential threat, whether it’s an angry bear, an oncoming car, or just an approaching deadline, our brains send a trigger to activate the physical stress response. Traditionally referred to as the fight-or-flight response, this activation of the brain releases signals throughout the body to prepare for the threat.

The sympathetic nervous system is the hub for this response. It makes up part of the autonomic nervous system which regulates involuntary bodily functions, including things like heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, stress hormone activation, and sweating. While activation of these functions may be appropriate and at times necessary in certain situations, too much sympathetic nervous system activity can be harmful. Symptoms of an overactive SNS may include frequent and ongoing experiences of increased heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, sweating, or feeling anxious, worried, distractible,inattentive. Your brain is unable to recognize that there, in fact, is no threat, so you are constantly in the fight-or-flight mode.

The rest and repair system, called the parasympathetic nervous system, is therefore unable to properly activate to slow the heart rate, decrease blood pressure, promote recovery and healing, and calm the mind and body. This can lead to increased stress, inflammation, injury, illness, and more.

To allow for proper relaxation, repair, and restoration of the body with an overactive SNS, our Better Calm and Better Sleep naturally encourage deactivation of the fight-or-flight response. Our supplements promote safe and effective results to decrease both the physical and mental manifestations of the body in distress. Your brain and body will thank you - even after you’ve outrun that bear.

The Underactive Brain 

No matter how many cups of coffee you drink or how many naps you take, sometimes you just can’t seem to wake up. You may feel foggy, fatigued, slow, inattentive, or in pain, and traditional stimulants may be either ineffective or have adverse side effects. This may be due to lifestyle-related causes such as alcohol/drugs, lack of exercise, diet, sleep disturbances, or improper recovery; workplace-related causes such as high sources of stress or burnout; or mental or emotional causes such as depression, anxiety, or stress.

Your sympathetic nervous system, the part of your body responsible for brain and body activation, may not be correctly firing. Improper activation can leave you feeling frustrated come time for high stakes activities like important meetings, exams, or competitions. Better Focus and Better Energy help activate your brain for higher daily functioning and before high performance enterprises. These natural supplements work to increase focus, alertness, mood, mental skills, athletic performance, and physical energy - all without the jitteriness or crash from traditional stimulants.
