9 Effective Endurance Supplements for Runners

Hi everyone, its Bretta Riches from RunForefoot.com, and today I’m going to talk to you about how you can get more energy
for running with taking nootropics which are health supplements that work by
delivering brain energy which transcends into physical energy. There is a strong
staining case that if you feel good mentally, you’re going to feel even
better physically, otherwise if you are mentally exhausted or brain foggy this
could translate into sluggish running performance, I think it’s important to
consider certain health supplements that act on the brain to deliver real energy
to the body via stimulating mental focus and concentration so that you get an
enhanced supply of a long lasting energy for running because the evidence tells
us that when you feel great you perform great. In that regard, in this video, I’m
going to list some of the health supplement that makes you more motivated, more focused, more clear-headed, more mentally upbeat which is likely going to
reverse physical fatigue. Alertness as well as elevated mood can be channeled
to physical energy for better quality performance running. So, the first one is
tocotrienols, which is a form of vitamin E. According to Asian researchers
taking 50 mg of tocotrienols energizes brain cells, making you more
clear-headed, more mentally sharper, less groggy which is going to necessitate good clean energy for running and according to reports in the journal Stroke,
tocotrienols really keeps you awake and going for hours because it enriches
circulation in the brain by keeping the brains’ blood vessels healthy, flexible
and most importantly it clears away plaque. In fact, the study found that
tocotrienols reduced the risk of stroke by 25%. So, if you have an
appetite for more brain energy tocotrienol supplements might be
something you really want to consider. Phosphatidylserine or PS, PS is
a soy bean extract and it’s essential for building blocks of healthy
functioning resilient brain cells and according to research out of UCLA which
found really good stuff on the effects of PS on the brain health whereby PS
boosted focus and mental acuity by 30% which catalyzes good
clean energy for running. Furthermore according to British
researchers, PS boosted energy levels by 55% which will single-handedly make a big difference in your running performance. Ginkgo – A
well-known scenario for many who are depressed is a lack of physical energy
to do anything let alone go running. Ginkgo will help you get off to a good
start motivation wise because ginkgo behaves more as an antidepressant that
really makes a difference for putting you in a better state of mind for
running by making it easier for you to control stress and sadness and get you
more encouraged. With that said ginkgo can have an enormously positive
influence on your running performance because you perform entirely different
if you’re happy and revved up versus if you’re depressed which just like I said
depression can also be a real physical burden for many. According to Canadian
researchers, ginkgo makes you happier and motivated by reducing stress hormones in
the brain and it was also found to reduce blue moods and depressive
symptoms by almost 80%. So, the evidence re-affirms that with ginkgo you
start to feel really good automatically which is critical for running
performance because you tend to give a lot more when you’re more plugged in in
terms of your mood and efforts. Additionally, according to British
researchers, ginkgo also increased focus and concentration by 95%, so again ginkgo is a very potent nootrophic that will help you get the results in your running
performance by essentially revitalizing your mood which is one of the main
things that always contributes to good performance. Vitamin B12 – Another spark to ignite good mood and best energy is vitamin b12 and you can understand why
because if you look at the scientific research many studies have found that
taking around a 1000 mcg of vitamin b12 daily enhances focus,
concentration and overall mental energy so if you’re low in energy for running
vitamin b12 can put the brakes on mental fatigue by enhancing focus and so you
wind up performing better while running. ALCAR – Stands for acetyl-l-
cartine, it’s an amino acid that stimulates sleepy brain cells thereby dramatically improving mood, energy, focus and concentration and was found to work along the same lines as ginkgo in that ALCAR was found to reverse and improve depressive symptoms, so it really sets
you in a confident direction so you can run even better. Ginseng combats fatigue
by improving mental alertness and mental energy at the same level as coffee and
it gives you the best motivation for running and it helps increase your
effort. Guarana contains brain energizing compounds called choline and theobromine which works in a similar fashion to caffeine in that guarana ushers in
more energy by welcoming in more oxygen and blood to the brain. Basically, Guarana
sharpen focus and mental energy via increasing blood flow and oxygen to the
brain which in this regard there is no better way to jumpstart your running
performance. Rhodiola rosea – According to research out of Columbia University, the
researchers found that taking 500 mg of rhodiola rosea a day
increased mental energy by increasing the production of the happy, uplifting
mood hormone serotonin and an allowed serotonin to linger around in the brain
longer, so you get lasting, positive mood /energy. So, rhodiola rosea is really a
mental health treasure because it increases serotonin which is a driving
force for more motivation, encouragement, excitement which essentially put you on
a good path to run and perform more optimally at your highest level. Garlic –
Taking 400 milligrams of garlic supplements in the morning can flood
your brain with energy as it was found to boost mental alertness and expands
your mental energy levels all day long. If you consider any one of these
energetic nootropic health supplements you’ll pretty much never have a shortage
of energy for running long distances. Your confidence plays a big role in
determining your success as a runner and certain health supplements, like I just
mentioned, really do shape how you feel because of reasons of having to do with
either increasing serotonin in the brain or stimulating nutrient-rich blood &
oxygen to the brain. I see these types of health/nootropics supplements as a
passport to better performance opportunity that have virtually no
damaging side effects, but of course always check with your doctor before
starting any new supplement and all that jazz. For more nutritional information
