MRM’s Sparkling Vitamin C 1,000 is a complete and balanced immune formula with vital antioxidants, prebiotics, and electrolytes. Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc are potent antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals in the body. Together with the rest of the formula these antioxidants help to support your overall immune system function.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s natural immune response. Antioxidants are molecules that combat the negative effects of free radicals. Vitamin C is a potent free radical scavenger that protects our bodies and assists immune health.

Vitamin D3 is a unique micro-encapsulated cholecalciferol form of Vitamin D3 that is extracted exclusively from lichens. Vitamin D3 is very important in regulating the absorption of and utilization of calcium and phosphorus. It supports both bone and immune health.

 

Zinc is a mineral and considered an “essential trace element” because it is a crucial cofactor in up to 300 enzymes. It is found in several systems and biological functioning enzymes and is important to immune health. It also helps support antioxidant protection.

 

Electrolytes are vital minerals that are charged particles, or ions when in the body. They can get depleted when we exercise or are sick. Our formula helps keep electrolyte levels in the healthy range to support proper hydration, enzyme function and balance pH levels.

 

B Vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being. They have a direct impact on energy levels and help support brain and immune health.

 

Acacia fiber is a prebiotic fiber that can help support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut helping to create a healthy microbiome. Since most our immune system is in our gut, a healthy microbiome is important for supporting immune health.

 

How It Works

Vitamin C, known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient found in many citrus fruits. In the body, it acts as an powerful antioxidant, helping to neutralize free radicals than can cause damage to the body. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules from natural by-products of daily metabolism, exercise and even the environment that want to react with and thus damage other molecules. This can create a free radical cascade, a chain reaction of free radicals damaging healthy tissue. This free radical cascade causes major damage to cells, proteins, and DNA. Vitamin C and antioxidants in general are potent free radical scavengers that help neutralize free radicals and thus can assist in recovery and Immune health.

 

Vitamin D3 supports immune health by stimulating the release of naturally occurring antimicrobial peptides, which can support immune health. These antimicrobial peptides reside in immune cells throughout the body. Vitamin D3 is also a fat-soluble antioxidant that can help neutralize fat-soluble free radicals. Healthy Vitamin D levels help maintain calcium levels and can support immune health.

 

Zinc is an essential trace mineral and is critical for overall health and well-being. Zinc is a necessary mineral cofactor in hundreds of enzymes. Enzyme cofactors are minerals or vitamins that physically get incorporated into the enzyme or protein so that it can be biologically active. Research has shown that the activation of many zinc-dependent enzymes and DNA activity were adversely affected due to zinc deficiency. Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant and assists healthy inflammation response. Most importantly, Zinc is essential for supporting immune health.

 

B vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being. As cofactors of enzymes and proteins that contribute to a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain health, cellular metabolism and supports immune health.

 

Electrolytes support hydration which is a key element to maintaining total immune health. Proper hydration and pH balance plays a critical role for nearly every process in the body. Our immune health relies on our blood stream, which is mostly water, to transport fluids, nutrients, and important signaling molecules throughout our system. Staying well hydrated is important for assisting immune health.

 

Acacia fiber is a prebiotic fiber than can help support the growth of beneficially bacteria in the gut helping to create a healthy microbiome. The healthy microbiome is necessary for proper immune health as most of our immune system lies in our digestive tract. Acacia fiber is the optimal food source for beneficial bacteria to grow and thrive helping to create a healthy and balanced microbiome.

The Afternoon Slump: 12 (Mostly) Caffeine-Free Ways to Perk Up

I’m writing this in the midst of an afternoon slump, and dear reader I confess: I’m not practicing what I’m about to preach. Or at least, not in its entirety. I’m fending off the urge to lay down my head with green tea (sanctioned) coupled with a gluten-free ginger cookie (rookie mistake). I don’t believe I’m the only one battling the wave of afternoon exhaustion. According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults’ strongest biological urges to sleep occur between 2 and 4 a.m. and between 1 and 3 p.m. First comes the initial slump, then the yawn, and then the coup de grace—eyes so heavy that it takes everything you have to pry them open.

Why does the afternoon slump happen?

Scientifically speaking, the afternoon slump is a period of decreased alertness, focus and productivity in the afternoon. Afternoon fatigue sets in because of a natural dip in your biological sleep-wake cycle. The slump can get amplified, however, by skimping on sleep, eating a heavy lunch, or having a particularly draining morning. Before you reach for the cookie, here are 12 sound ways to get the better of afternoon sleepiness.

Afternoon Slump Solutions

Move

A 2017 study published in the journal Physiology & Behavior found that short periods of physical activities, such as 15 minutes of stair walking was more energizing than a cup of coffee. The study focused on chronically sleep deprived adults, who found themselves more invigorated by a brief spurt of activity versus the equivalent to a cup of coffee—a 50-milligram caffeine capsule. If you are feeling the approach of a wave of tiredness, stroll around the office, run up and down the stairs, or do a few stretches or pushups.

Catch a whiff

Certain scents can make us more alert or more relaxed. Peppermint is a known energy-enhancing scent. The scent stimulates the hippocampus area of the brain, the area that controls mental clarity and memory, particularly long-term memory. Peppermint’s menthol component triggers you to wake up and pay attention. Put a few drops of peppermint essential oil on your hands, rub them together, then rub them over your face (avoid your eyes).

Get outside

Take a break and get outside, as the outdoors has an inherently revitalizing effect. A 2010 study found that spending just 20 minutes outdoors could elevate energy levels.

Chew gum

Chewing increases the amount of blood and oxygen flowing through your head, brain included. As a result, gum chewing makes people more alert and can speed up your thinking. A 2013 study reported in the journal Brain and Cognition found that reaction times are up to 10 per cent faster while chewing gum.

Nap

Embrace the nap—in moderation. Done right, a nap won’t decrease your productivity and can actually boost your energy. The sweet spot for a power nap is somewhere between 20-30 minutes. According to the sleep foundation, researchers found that five-minute naps are too short to produce a notable benefit. On the other hand, sleeping for 30 minutes or longer gives the body enough time to enter deep sleep. But napping for too long can leave you feeling drowsy for up to an hour. For extra credit, supercharge your naps with caffeine. Although it sounds counterintuitive, if you drink coffee or tea about 20 minutes before a nap, you can time it so your energy will peak just as you wake up. If you’re caffeine-sensitive, avoid caffeine after whatever you have deemed your cut-off point.

Green tea

A cup of green tea, packed with active compounds called phytochemicals, can give you sustained focus in the afternoon without the jitters or making it tough to fall asleep that night.

Hydrate

Medical research shows that dehydration can make you feel tired even when you're rested. Men in a study on dehydration reported they felt fatigue, lethargy and tiredness. Being properly hydrated helps raise energy levels and help you feel your best.

Music

If you feel lethargic during your workout music can help, so why not at the office? Several studies suggest that the benefits of music include enhanced attention, mental efficiency, speed, accuracy, memory and creativity. If you enjoy listening to music while you work, consider choosing a song without lyrics to cut down on getting carried away.

Snack

Treat snacks as mini-meals that contribute to your overall nutrition for the day. Healthy snacks can provide your body with time-released fuel. Opt for fruits and vegetables to boost your intake of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Mix that with some protein-dense choices such as a handful of nuts, homemade trail mix, a hard-boiled egg or Greek yogurt with seeds to keep your mojo at its max.

Stand up

Studies have shown that even short bursts of activity can keep you alert. Instead of emailing or calling colleagues, stop by their desks to ask a question face to face. If you have a standing desk, push yourself to stand up when you feel the most tired.

Humor

When you laugh, your body increases its oxygen intake and releases endorphins. Among laughter’s many other benefits, it provides you with a quick, refreshing reboot. In one University of Nebraska study, participants who watched a funny video afterwards enjoyed an immediate energy boost.

Sex/masturbation

If you are working remotely and the afternoon slump hits, you can snap out of if by literally snapping of (masturbating). Orgasms can flush your body with endorphins, reduce stress, increase blood flow, boost concentration and invigorate you. And sex can serve as a quick pick-me-up as well, releasing a host of endorphins that can bump up your energy considerably.
