In today’s fast-paced corporate world, stress is a defining feature of modern-day workplaces. As a result, we all have days when we feel confused, find it hard to concentrate on our work or make silly mistakes that impact our productivity and performance. But when it becomes a regular thing and starts interfering with your daily life, it could indicate a more serious underlying issue such as brain fog.
Brain fog or ‘mental fatigue’ isn’t a medical condition itself, but rather a symptom of other conditions including excessive or prolonged stress. Symptoms include forgetfulness, inability to focus on work, confusion, distraction, not able to organise thoughts and feeling physically or mentally tired.
Though stress may seem like a common and relatively harmless term, chronic stress can wreak havoc on your body. When your body perceives a stressful situation, it activates the sympathetic nervous system, or the ‘fight-or-flight response.’ This response triggers the release of epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, and norepinephrine, and ultimately diverts energy away from your body’s typical functions and towards the stressor. This can make it difficult to think clearly, harder to focus, and could exhaust your brain.
New Pro Plus® Ultra is the UK’s first energy supplement to contain a unique blend of ingredients including slow-release caffeine, vitamins B6 & B12 and Ashwagandha, which have been shown to enhance energy and cognitive function, providing you with the brain fuel you need to overcome the many obstacles we face in a day.
Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in alternative medicine – it has been used for centuries to moderate the body’s response to stress, bringing both energy and inner calm. By nourishing a worried mind and relaxing the nervous system, Pro Plus® Ultra helps the body to rebalance, refocus and get ready to tackle life’s challenges.
Commenting on the cognitive enhancing effects of New Pro Plus® Ultra, Gemma Ellis, a 25-year-old content creator and single parent from York:
When I’m stressed or run down, I feel as though I don’t have the creative capacity to think of new ideas when it comes to my work, or like I’m failing sometimes due to not feeling as productive. This impacts all aspects of my life as I don’t have the energy to do as much physically, and I can’t get as much work done.
Since taking Pro Plus® Ultra I’m finding it so helpful, particularly because work has been extremely hectic lately and as much as I try to stay focused, stress often takes over. I’ve noticed a huge shift in my thought process and creativity when I get an energy boost and Pro Plus® Ultra gives me exactly what I need.
I instantly noticed my focus improve when I was working on certain projects and can feel how much better my mental performance is since taking Pro Plus® Ultra as part of my morning routine. It’s important to know I’m giving my body lots of things it needs in order for me to perform at my best, and thanks to the slow-release caffeine and B vitamins, it gives me the much-needed energy boost in the morning to be most productive throughout the day. Having previously relied on coffee or energy drinks, switching to a slow-release caffeine product really does work wonders!
