What Is E-Bomb?
Monkey E-Bomb is a sugar free, safe and natural alternative to those nasty energy drinks, which seem to find their way into gym bags all around the world! By combining traditional plants, roots and herbs with B-vitamins, minerals and just enough caffeine, E-Bomb provides you with a boost of energy, but without the jittery, anxious feeling often associated with energy drinks….and no crash! As with most energy boosting supplements, the E-Bomb focuses on high doses of B-vitamins, but is unique in it’s approach, by also including a blend of adaptogens - substances which allow for the stabilisation of physiological processes and thus the promotion of homeostasis (maintaining a balance within the body). Adaptogens such as Maca, will stimulate and nourish the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, allowing for better energy production, especially in individuals whose energy levels are generally low. This will help to improve overall cognitive function (reasoning, memory, attention, learning etc.), enhance mood and provide a boost to your immune system.
The inclusion of both Korean and American ginseng is particularly important in elevating mood (low mood and stress drain energy) and promoting an overall sense of well-being. Rhodiola Rosea is included in the blend due to its traditional usage as an anti-fatigue agent. The adaptogenic and central nervous system activities of Rhodiola rosea have been attributed primarily to its ability to influence levels and activity of monoamines and opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins. The addition of acai in a larger amount than other ingredients, is in part, down to its ability to prevent the oxidation of molecules, which otherwise produces free radicals and damages the cells within our bodies. Acai rates extremely high on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity), making it one of the the worlds most antioxidant rich foods. ORAC is a measurement of the ability of antioxidants to neutralise free radicals. Acai has more than double the antioxidants of blueberries and nearly ten times that of grapes. The amazing nutritional profile of acai is not limited to its high ORAC rating - this little berry also includes a wide range of vitamins, magnesium, zinc, copper, calcium, fatty acids and amino acids. Needless to say, this nutrient dense food is an integral part of the energy boosting system within E-Bomb and contributes to the overall health of the body.
Safety & Bioavailability
Safety and Biological activity are always the most important factors for us when formulating a product. The NSF program we conform to, deals significantly with various testing procedures such as potency, microbial content and stability. Procedures consider and identify any issues related to the organoleptic, physical, chemical, biological and microbiological characteristics of the components under long term storage, ensuring the blend of ingredients are safe/stable and maintain their potency over a period of time.
Ensuring the best possible biological activity of a given product is a chief concern for us and much thought goes into each formulation to give you a product that actually works - an example of this can be seen here, with the inclusion of both Korean and American ginseng. Despite being from the same family and having a similar chemical makeup, these adaptogens do offer slightly different qualities and differ in biological activity, thus we thought it prudent to include both, as a kind of “belt and braces” approach. A closer analysis of these adaptogens reveals American ginseng to contain more ginsenocides (plant chemicals) than Korean ginseng, although according to the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture and Food, Korean ginseng is more effective medicinally. This is because the type of ginsenocide best suited for medicinal purposes, is available in greater quantities, making Korean ginseng more biologically active than its counterpart.
Why E-Bomb Is Better Than Other “Energy Pills”
The blend of ingredients within E-Bomb have been carefully formulated to give you a safe and effective boost of energy, without any of the negative pitfalls associated with energy enhancing products. The ingredients are sourced from nature and their ratios help to allow for a synergy unsurpassed by any other capsule/tablet based product currently available on the UK market.
E-Bomb comes in capsule form - that’s not to say tablets are not without their merits, but for the purposes of packing the extensive list of ingredients and in particular, the blend of adaptogens into a carrier, the capsule is the preferred choice. This also favours the protection of some of the more sensitive ingredients and reduces the potential for any gastrointestinal irritation.
As E-Bomb’s main aim is to provide you with a hit of energy which doesn’t induce a crash, the processing integrates a hydrophilic matrix system - a high grade matrix controlled-release system, that is more forgiving of variations in ingredients, production methods and end-use conditions, than coated control-release tablets and other systems. The benefits of which, are a more uniform release and a high resistance to “nutrient dumping”.
How To Take It
Take 1-2 capsules first thing in the morning (with breakfast), or 1 capsule at breakfast and 1 at lunch.
