NEED A BOOST? Natural Supplements to Increase Your Energy

As spring kicks off, many people will be tempted to grab a Monster, Red Bull, or Rockstar to get through the day. Energy drinks may give you a quick boost, but the high levels of caffeine and sugar can lead to migraines and increased anxiety. If over-consumed, these drinks can even lead to Type 2 diabetes. To avoid these health hazards, try out a few of these natural energy boosters instead. Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub found mostly in India. As part of the Ayurveda system, an alternative medicine practice from India, it’s also known as “Indian ginseng.” The Alternative Medicine Review published a study indicating ashwagandha increases the body’s resilience to physical and mental stress by lowering levels of the stress hormone cortisol by 28%. Ashwagandha can also help you through long workouts and the 9-to-5 grind because it may also improve brain function, including memory. You can get ashwagandha in pill form at most convenience stores around the world. ASHWAGANDHA

during high-intensity activities, short-duration exercises, and sports, including football, shot put, and weightlifting. This compound is found in red meat, pork, poultry, and fish, and when consumed, it releases phosphates that give your body a quick burst of energy. Ingesting more than 5 grams, though, will leave you feeling bloated with a lot of stomach discomfort. Creatine powder can be found at most wellness stores.

BEETROOT POWDER

Beetroot powder is made from the roots of the beet plant and is rich in nitrate. Nitrate relaxes blood vessels, creating increased blood flow and oxygen delivery. This enables your body to produce energy more efficiently and maintain energy levels, making beetroot powder a great aid for endurance sports like running, soccer, and biking. In the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, a study reported that athletes could work out for 25% longer when they used beetroot powder. Fatigue didn’t set in until much later in their workout, which improved their training and performance.

This spring, say goodbye to energy drinks and get the boost you need with one of these natural energy supplements.

CREATINE

THE LATEST IN HAIR REGENERATION The Wellness Studio Adds Exosome Treatment regeneration. For starters, there are two forms of application: injections and a practice that mirrors the microneedling process. Like PRP treatments, a serum is created through the extraction of the patient’s blood. This means the healing properties found in the exosomes will come straight from your body and no other outside sources! In the injection process, a very small needle is used to insert the extracted exosome serum into the scalp. The second form of application uses even smaller needles to deliver the serum into the scalp and foster hair regeneration and growth. Like PRP treatments, exosome treatments do require some outpatient guidance and consideration. Topical treatments may aid in the exosome’s ability to regenerate hair growth, while a nutritious diet has been shown to positively influence exosome effectiveness. ( Note: Our team can help you plan an optimal diet after your exosome treatment!) While exosome use for hair growth and restoration is still continually being researched, the findings have been very positive for patients suffering from hair loss. Many experts believe this treatment can be a powerful tool to aid those who are suffering from hair loss.

Many people don’t realize creatine is a natural energy booster because they get it mostly in processed, high- sugar energy drinks. However, in doses less than 5 grams, creatine provides impressive benefits

Cells are powerful microscopic building blocks for life, and each component to a cell impacts how organisms function. As experts continue to study and learn more about these life-sustaining environments, researchers are learning that one of the pieces that makes cells so powerful can also be used to help those suffering from hair loss. Our team at The Wellness Studio just added this very treatment derived from the cell to our hair regeneration options! Exosomes are responsible for communicating genetic signals between cells. These carry information about the function of a cell, and like stem cells, they empower other cells to mimic their function, making them ideal for hair growth and restoration.

The process for exosome application and treatment is similar to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for hair
