INGREDIENTS THATGO BEYOND THE SURFACE
Each of stunn’s clean, plant-based ingredients were hand-selected after years of meticulous research for their clinically proven benefits and synergistic relationship to one another.
QUALITY IS OUR PRIORITY
STUNN’s ingredients come from the highest quality, FDA compliant sources, and meet third party standards for safety and quality. Every ingredient is thoroughly examined and tested for potency and to ensure they are free of contaminants such as microbiological/pathogenic organisms, pesticides, and heavy metals.
Minimum Effective Dosage
Most ingredients have a clinically researched dosage threshold, whereby when crossed, the ingredient becomes toxic. The safe dosage refers to the clinically studied dosage limits that are safe for regular consumption.
Adaptogens are natural substances (sometimes referred to as herbal pharmaceuticals) considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes.
Adaptogens have many benefits, including neuroprotective elements, anti-fatigue properties, antidepressive effects, they stimulate the central nervous system, and they increase mental work capacity, enhance attention, and prevent stress and fatigue.
AM YOUTH BOOST contains a variety of adaptogenic plants, including Gotu Kola, Ashwagandha, Boswellia Serrata, Amla Fruit. They are beneficial for use in the morning for their calming but energizing effects, and for their ability to help you manage stressors throughout the day.
Whole fruit (powder) vs. Extract
Natural plant ingredients can be used either as a whole fruit (powder), or as an extract. Extracts are often used to help isolate a specific, key compound in the plant, which provides a standardized ingredient.
Though extracts are standardized for specific compounds, there are times when a whole fruit (powder) is preferable, as all natural plant ingredients contain a variety of compounds with synergistic benefits, and extracting out key compounds may not serve the intended benefit as optimally.
Synergy in nutritional supplements refers to the combined effect of the individual ingredients – a sum which is more powerful than the sum of the individual ingredients by themselves. With natural plant ingredients, the synergistic effects are quite complex, and must be evaluated extensively when creating quality formulation. Some ingredients enhance the effectiveness of each other, while others cancel out certain effects when they are used together.
Ingredient synergies must be considered to ensure the proper dosing of ingredients is used, and to ensure the intended effects are present.
STUNN Collective has extensively researched the synergistic effects of ingredient combinations present in AM YOUTH BOOST and PM CELL RESET to ensure proper dosing and desired effects.
