Onnit 180: The Turnaround Formula
The Onnit 180 Drink Mix combines the flagship Alpha BRAIN nootropic formula with additional vitamins, antioxidants, 5-HTP and the Indian herb, ashwagandha. Formulated for quick absorption, Onnit 180 provides the ideal combination to clear the mental fog and make a rapid recovery from hangovers, laborious travel, or sleep deprivation.
Prevention is Key
Nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep are essential components that lead to good mental health and high cognitive functioning (source). However, a perfectly balanced lifestyle is challenging to maintain and we frequently find ourselves operating at less than 100%. Mental and physical fatigue can lead to poor performance and further irritability. One solution is to supplement your diet with vitamins and potent antioxidants that directly combat these symptoms. Onnit 180 includes neuroprotective antioxidants, such as AC-11, vinpocetine, and bacopa monniera, that help the body keep brain cells healthier, increase cerebral blood blood, and can aide in providing mental clarity[source, source, source].
Fight the flight
Cognitive impairment from air travel is almost certain when changing time zones[source]. Though jetlag can be unavoidable, other components of flying exacerbate jetlag symptoms. Stress and sleep disturbances have profound negative effects that can persist longer than the jetlag recovery. Phosphatidylserine has been shown to be a powerful supplement that helps the body attenuate the cortisol stress response, allowing athletes to perform better and individuals to improve their cognitive performance[source, source].
Cosmic radiation exposure by flying at high altitudes can become a concern for frequent travelers[source]. For example, the radiation exposure from a six hour flight can be approximately 400 times greater than walking through a TSA full body scanner. Although this amount of radiation is still below the hazardous limit, nutrition supplements can minimize the effects of airline travel. Onnit 180 includes the protective compounds potassium iodide, B vitamins, zinc, and Siberian Ginseng to help reduce the risk associate with radiation exposure[source].
Onnit 180 contains essential neurotransmitter precursors for serotonin and dopamine that can help the body alleviate the irritability that accompanies mental fatigue[source, source]. Furthermore, Huperzine Serrata and Alpha-GPC can boost acetylcholine levels to elevate alertness and concentration[source, source]. The 180 formula uniquely contains the one of the most well characterized herbs in Ayuvedic medicine, known as ashwagandha. Also named Indian ginseng, ashwagandha exerts anti-fatigue and stress reducing effects and has been shown to improve physical performance in healthy adults[source]. Positive effects on the endocrine and cardiovascular systems by ashwagandha constituents can have rejuvenating effects for individuals of all ages[source].
Whether a red-eye flight or a long night of indulgence is the cause of your sub-optimal mental state, the Onnit 180 formula can help recharge the cognitive batteries and help the body accelerate the path to full recovery.
