As a doctor, I have seen impressive results in patients who use the Nutravit Energy supplement. I was intrigued by this and so I decided to look at the product more closely.
Of course, I had come across energy drinks before, and their effects when overdosed. But I had never paid close attention to energy supplements.
Therefore, when I noticed that two of my long-haul COVID-19 patients were reporting increased energy levels from taking this supplement, I decided to look at it more closely. I contacted a doctor friend from another state, who had spent more time studying the effects of COVID than I had.
One of the things he told me is that COVID exposure can have a negative effect on mitochondrial function. The mitochondrion is largely responsible for producing the chemical energy that powers the rest of the cell reactions. Therefore, if the function of the mitochondria is affected in any way, it is going to affect the energy levels you enjoy in your body.
This is what prompted me to order a bottle of Nutravit Energy and take it for my own experience. First, I looked at the ingredients. Briefly, these are caffeine anhydrous, vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Taurine, Theacrine, L-Theanine, Citrulline, Magnesium Stearate, and silica dioxide.
I understand the ability of caffeine anhydrous because it is used in many other energy-boosting supplements. I have mixed feelings about caffeine in general, it does seem to work for many people, improving wakefulness and making one feel more alert.
As a physician, there are some must-have ingredients in any energy-boosting product worth its name in the market. This is Vitamin B12 because of its prowess at helping the body convert food to energy. It is included in this supplement in generous measure.
The inclusion of Vitamin B6 as Pyridoxine HCl is a good idea because of its prowess at giving smooth and consistent energy. It also helps with muscle repair, cognitive function.
There are more ingredients, including some amino acids. All of them play distinctive roles but collectively, they result in consistent energy release in the cells.
One more thing I have realized about this product is its ability to lift the mood. Of course, this can be a ripple effect of being more productive at work. Taurine and caffeine may improve your mood, and both are available in this supplement.
Would I take this supplement? I am already taking it. Please note that these are my anecdotal observations so they are not based on any scientific research. Neither have they been carried out in any controlled study.
