The Perfect Complement To The Opti-Pack
In keeping with the original SuperNutrition vitamin program, the Energy Caps are created to be used as a "booster" formula in conjunction with the Opti-Pack and all of the Blend multi-vitamins. SuperNutrition Energy Caps were designed for those who want increased levels of the key nutrients that contribute to rapid recovery of an overtaxed system, and help protect the cells from oxidative stress. Energy Caps, like all our multi-vitamins, are formulated to be in the most effective balance for human metabolism, so you will notice that the formula contains very specific ratios of the key nutrients, like the B-Complex vitamins, and the antioxidants.
A Safe Natural Booster
Energy Caps are not an adrenal stimulant, but the nutrients provide highly effective nutritional support for your energy enzyme systems, providing your body with every nutrient necessary to make energy in the Krebs Cycle. They are safe, even when multiple Energy Caps are taken at once. Energy Caps contain 50 milligrams of niacin, per capsule, in balance with 31 other nutrients, and you'll notice the energy boost to the cells that niacin delivers. For some rare individuals, taking one may be enough to cause the "niacin flush," and two or more increases the likelihood, therefore you may want to increase your Energy Cap intake gradually, over a period of time, as your energy needs vary.
When To Take Energy Caps
You'll notice the most benefit from SuperNutrition Energy Caps when they are taken approximately one half hour before intensive exercise or any other potentially stressful activity. However, Energy Caps are a "quick-release" formula, so they're released into the bloodstream in as little as fifteen minutes on an empty stomach. Energy Caps rapid-action formula provides noticeable effects in minutes, and lasts from 2 to 4 hours with no drug or herbal stimulant. For peak performance, try Energy Caps before exercise, a job interview, a presentation, or a date, and sail through your stress with flying colors!
Why does a super B-complex contain antioxidants?
You know it's important to supply B-vitamins to your body when you're experiencing the stress of a fast paced lifestyle or are burning energy during athletic activity. Studies show that both free-radicals and cellular inflammation may be generated whenever your activity level increases.1 This is called oxidative stress and is a primary cause of premature cellular aging, inflamed tissue, fatigue, and poor recovery.
SuperNutrition adds the antioxidants that have been shown to reduce oxidative stress2 to this specially balanced Krebs Cycle B-complex so that you can perform at your optimum when stress demands.
Whether you're an elite athlete or living a high-energy lifestyle, this formula is designed to help your body create energy more efficiently and recover more quickly, while it protects your cells from oxidative stress.

About Our Niacin
Niacin is one of the nutrient molecules that is necessary for the proper function of the enzyme called mono-amine oxidase (MAO). MAO, among its many duties, detoxifies or "cleans" the brain of the "brain toxic" by-products of the metabolism of the essential amino acid, tryptophan. These by-products are chemical cousins of hallucinogens like LSD, which are known to interfere with some of the brain's normal healthy functions, including affects, mood and memory.
Gilka L, The Biochemistry of the Schizophrenias, Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry 1978; 7(1):6-16
Studies show that niacin deficiencies may be the underlying cause of several imbalances in brain chemistry that impair normal and optimal performance of the brain. That's why niacin may also benefit those who suffer from senility and depression.
Take alone or in addition to a daily multi-vitamin, like our Opti-Pack, Perfect Blend, Longevity or Women's Blend.
Energy Caps contain no chemical retardants and should be kept in a cool, dry place. BEST IF KEPT REFRIGERATED.
