THE ULTIMATE BRAIN ENERGY DRINK!
Liberty Health Net is proud to introduce you to our newest product - Cherry Bomb.
Ours is a world of explosive change, a breeding ground for uncertainty, insecurity and tremendous stress. Stress is the psychological and the physical response to the demands of daily life that exceeds our normal ability to successfully cope with these challenges. With all the technological advancements that are supposed to make our life easier and more productive, we have actually created for ourselves a modern condition called “stress”.
Stress, unfortunately, is now an unavoidable part of modern life. Some common day-to-day factors that may cause stress include: problems at work, marital problems, overwork, lack of sleep, illnesses, raising children, financial problems and believe it or not to a lesser degree, traffic. Often these stresses leave us fatigued and less alert.
Cherry Bomb™ was created to help the body replenish itself from those daily stresses. You’ll get physical stamina, mental alertness, and an improved mood, without sugar or ephedra. You will get a safe, long-lasting, all-natural energy drink, with no "spikes" followed by "crashes". In fact, many say they simply feel better for a longer period of time.
Cherry Bomb™ provides amino acids, minerals, botanicals and essential nutrients to maintain your brain and body at optimum performance. We use ingredients that have been clinically proven in independent studies to increase your mental alertness, clarity and focus; to give you give you more energy; and to last longer than most other energy drinks. Our product contains no ephedra! The effects you feel are real and long lasting, not artificially produced short-term boosts.
Cherry Bomb™ helps the body and the brain work together smoothly. The amino acids in Cherry Bomb™ contribute directly to the proper functioning of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are responsible for sending signals to the rest of the body. The vitamins and minerals in Cherry Bomb™ keep muscles and organs functioning properly.
Here are the ingredients and some of the benefits you may experience as a result of the blend of ingredients in Cherry Bomb™:
L Taurine: Taurine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body. It is found in the central nervous system, skeletal muscle and is very concentrated in the brain and in heart muscle. Taurine is synthesized from the amino acids methionine and cysteine, in conjunction with Vitamin B6. Women are more apt to be deficient in taurine since the female hormone estradiol depresses the formation of taurine in the liver. Taurine helps to stabilize cell membranes and seems to have some antioxidant and detoxifying activity. It helps the movement of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of cells, minerals that help generate nerve impulses.
L Tyrosine: Tyrosine is a precursor of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine, both that regulate moods. Tyrosine acts as a mood elevator; a lack of adequate amounts of tyrosine leads to a deficiency of norepinephrine in the brain, which in turn can result in depression. Extra amounts of tyrosine in the diet may elevate brain levels of norepinephrine, improving neurotransmissions and doing away with depression. Tyrosine suppresses the appetite and helps to reduce body fat, it also aids in the production of melanin (the pigment responsible for skin and hair color) and in the functions of the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands. Tyrosine attaches to iodine atoms to form active thyroid hormones. Supplemental L-Tyrosine has been used for stress reduction; research suggests it may be helpful against chronic fatigue. It has been used to help individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, allergies, and headaches, as well as persons undergoing withdrawal from drugs, including smoking and alcohol
GABA: GABA stands for gamma-aminobutyric acid. GABA is required as an inhibitory neurotransmitter to block the transmission of an impulse from one cell to another in the central nervous system, which prevents over-firing of the nerve cells. It is also used for brain metabolism and to treat both epilepsy and hypertension where it is thought to induce tranquility in individuals who have a high activity of manic behavior and acute agitation. It has been suggested that a shortage of GABA may cause panic attacks, since an intake of tranquilizers can increase the level of GABA in the body. GABA may also be effective in treating PMS in women.
L – Glycine: Glycine is the simplest non-essential amino acid. It is called glycine because it resembles the sweet taste of glucose (blood sugar) and glycogen (liver starch). Glycine is required for optimum growth and for creatinine synthesis, a compound that is present in muscle tissue and is utilized in the construction of RNA and DNA. It is conceivable that under some conditions, glycine might become essential in humans. Glycine is probably the third major inhibitory neurotransmitter of the brain; glycine therapy readily passes the blood-brain barrier. Research also indicates that glycine releases growth hormones. Glycine plays a key roll in the development and quality of our skeletal muscles, tissues, and structural integrity. Glycine is essential for synthesis of nucleic acids, bile acids, and other nonessential amino acids within the body. Found in high concentrations in the skin and connective tissues, it is useful for repairing damaged tissues and promoting healing. Glycine is necessary for central nervous system function and a healthy prostate. It can help prevent epileptic seizures, since it inhibits neurotransmitters. It is useful in the treatment of manic (bipolar) depression. Clinical studies with individuals during acute manic attacks, calmness and cessation of the manic episode occurred within one hour. Patients taking lithium for depression have shown an increase in plasma glycine. Glycine is also effective for treatment of hyperactivity. Having the correct amount of glycine produces energy. Other claims for detoxification by glycine relate to its ability to stimulate the synthesis of glutathuione, the most important antioxidant detoxification system in our body.
L- Phenylalanine: L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid. Once in the body, can also convert to another amino acid, tyrosine, which participates in synthesizing two key neurotransmitters that promote alertness: dopamine and norepinephrine. Through interaction with the central nervous system, it can elevate mood, decrease pain, aid memory and learning, and suppress the appetite. Phenylalanine reduces cravings for alcohol and has been used to relieve inflammation, low mood, PMS, migraine and other chronic pain. L-tyrosine can be converted by neurons in the brain to dopamine and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) hormones that are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs.
Guarana: European researchers began studying guaraná (in France and Germany) in the 1940s. Early research documents Indians using it to cure fevers, headaches, cramps, and as an energy tonic. Guaraná is used and well known for its stimulant and thermogenic action. Guaraná is reputed to increase mental alertness, fight fatigue, and increase stamina and physical endurance. Presently, guaraná is taken daily as a health tonic by millions of Brazilians, who believe it helps overcome heat fatigue, combats premature aging, detoxifies the blood, and is useful for intestinal gas, obesity, dyspepsia, fatigue, and arteriosclerosis.
CoQ10: Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) or ubiquinol has become synonymous with increasing cellular energy. Many studies have shown that it has value in combating various forms of cardiovascular disease, reducing the number and size of some tumors and treating gum disease. In fact, according to the newsletter Nutrition News, it has extended the life span of laboratory animals up to 56%. CoenzymeQ10 is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance present in every cell of the body and CoQ10 serves as a coenzyme for several of the key enzymatic steps in the production of energy within the cell. Coenzyme Q10 also functions as an antioxidant that is important in its clinical benefits.
Vitamin B2: Vitamin B2 is a water-soluble vitamin needed to process amino acids and fats, activate vitamin B6 and folic acid, and help convert carbohydrates into the fuel the body runs on—adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Under some conditions, vitamin B2 can act as an antioxidant.
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is a member of the vitamin B complex. It contains cobalt, and so is also known as cobalamin. It is exclusively synthesised by bacteria and is found primarily in meat, eggs and dairy products. Vitamin B12 is necessary for the synthesis of red blood cells, the maintenance of the nervous system, and growth and development in children. Deficiency can cause anaemia. Vitamin B12 deficiency, involving the degeneration of nerve fibers and irreversible neurological damage, can also occur.
Pantothentic Acid: Pantothenic Acid is a B complex vitamin that is vital in normal growth and reproductive functions. Pantothenic Acid is a precursor of two coenzymes that are responsible for more than 100 metabolic functions in the body. Another name for Pantothenic Acid is its more commonly known name Vitamin B5. Vitamin B5 is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. B5 vitamin is also essential in releasing energy from fats. Pantothenic acid also activates the adrenal glands. Vitamin B5 deficiencies have been reported in people that suffer from alcoholism. Pantothenic Acid also helps protect the body from stress.
Niacin: Niacin also called nicotinic acid, niacinamide or nicotinic acid and is often referred to as vitamin B3. Niacin is derived from two compounds - nicotinic acid and niacinamide. Vitamin B3 is required for cell respiration, helps in the release of energy and metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, proper circulation and healthy skin, functioning of the nervous system, and normal secretion of bile and stomach fluids. It is used in the synthesis of sex hormones, treating schizophrenia and other mental illnesses, and is an excellent memory-enhancer.
Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is part of the B group vitamins, is water-soluble and is required for both mental and physical health. Pyridoxine is required for the balancing of hormonal changes in women as well as assisting the immune system and the growth of new cells. It is also used in the processing and the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, while controlling mood as well as behavior. Pyridoxine assists in the balancing of sodium and potassium as well as promoting red blood cell production. It is involved in the creation of the nucleic acids RNA as well as DNA.
Vitamin B1: Thiamin, also called Vitamin B1, is used in many different body functions and deficiencies. Yet very little of this vitamin is stored in the body, and complete depletion of this vitamin can happen as quickly as 14 days. Thiamin is a miraculous nutrient. Thiamin may enhance circulation, helps with blood formation and the metabolism of carbohydrates. It is also required for the health of the nervous system and is used in the biosynthesis of a number of cell constituents, including the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). It is used in the manufacture of hydrochloric acid, and therefore plays a part in digestion. It is also great for the brain and may help with depression and assist with memory and learning. In children it is required for growth and has shown some indication to assist in combating arthritis, cataracts as well as infertility.
Choline Bitartrate: Choline's metabolic significance is closely interrelated to that of methionine, and methyl-folate. Yet choline is at times treated by some nutritional specialists as a stepchild in nutrition. Choline assists in controlling weight as well as cholesterol levels, keeping cell membranes healthy and in preventing gallstones. It is also most useful in the maintenance of the nervous system, assisting memory and learning, and may help to fight infections. Choline is critical for normal membrane structure and function. Choline is the major precursor of betaine, and it is used by the kidneys to maintain water balance and by the liver as a source of methyl-groups for methionine formation. It is also used to produce the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It assists in nerve impulse transmission, gallbladder regulation, liver functions and lecithin production.
Beet Juice Powder: Raw beets contains phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium as well as vitamin A, niacin, folic acid, and biotin. When these nutrients are captured in a juicing process, they remain in a form that is much easier to assimilate than synthetic nutrients. The iron in beet juice, in particular, is noted for being more easily assimilated than other forms of iron supplements. Potassium, in particular, is essential for all cellular functions. Along with sodium, it regulates water balance and acidity-alkalinity balance in the blood and tissues. It is often depleted with aging, in degenerative disorders, and with a highly refined diet that is high in sugar. Historically, beetroots have been known to have medicinal properties, specifically anti-hepatotoxic effects, that is, the ability to counter damaging effects on the liver. For the past three or four centuries, it has been thought to be beneficial for the detoxification of the liver, and it was used for the treatment of hepatitis. The exact mechanism by which beets support the liver remains unknown; however, theories suggest that they effectively limit fat deposits in the liver, probably because of their high concentration of betaine. Betaine is often referred to as the lipotropic factor because of this ability to help the liver process fats. Betaine also plays a role in reducing homocysteine. High levels of homocysteine are associated with cardiovascular disease, so betaine is thought to support cardiovascular health. Beets also contain biochanin A, a potential cancer-fighting agent.
L- Carnitine: Carnitine is really not an amino acid, but because of the close structural similarities, it is normally classified as an amino acids, and is also known as vitamin BT. It is available as D-carnitine, L-carnitine, DL-carnitine as well as acetyl-L-carnitine. But L-carnitine is the most common type. L-Carnitine is synthesized from the essential amino acids lysine and methionine, but enough vitamin B1 (thiamine) and B6 (pyridoxine) must be available. Unlike a true amino acid, it is not used in protein synthesis or as neurotransmitter, but is used for long-chain fatty acid transport and is required for entry of these long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cell, as well as for the removal of short-chain organic acids from the mitochondria, which frees the intra-mitochondrial coenzyme. It is therefore important for the energy supply within the cell, as well as muscles, to assist in preventing fatty build-up in areas such as the heart, liver, and skeletal muscles.
Beta Carotene: Beta-carotene belongs to a group of plant compounds called carotenoids. These are the pigments that provide the yellow, orange, and red coloration in fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene is the most abundant carotenoid in human foods and is generally thought to be the most important carotenoid for humans. Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A and is changed in the body to vitamin A, or retinol. Enzymes in the intestines also convert beta-carotene to vitamin A whenever it is needed. In addition to being a precursor for vitamin A, beta-carotene is an important antioxidant that helps to prevent harmful free radical damage in the body.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E has earned itself a reputation from spicing up a sex life to reducing wrinkles and combating old age. One of the most important functions of this vitamin is its antioxidant properties. Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that includes eight naturally occurring compounds in two classes designated as tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is an effective chain-breaking, lipid-soluble antioxidant in biological membranes, and aids in membrane stability. Vitamin E protects the cells from oxidation, and neutralizes unstable free radicals, which can cause damage. This is done when vitamin E gives up one of its electrons to the electron deficient free radical, making it more stable. While Vitamin E performs its antioxidant functions, it also protects the other antioxidants from being oxidized. This antioxidant capability helps to prevent degenerative diseases including heart disease, strokes, arthritis, senility, diabetes and cancer. It also assists in fighting heart disease and cancers and is essential for red blood cells, helps with cellular respiration and protects the body from pollution. Vitamin E is also useful in preventing blood clots from forming and promotes fertility, reduces and/or prevents hot flushes in menopause. An increase in stamina and endurance is also attributed to Vitamin E.
Zinc: Zinc is one of the minerals men should never be without and has such a wide application in human health that everybody should ensure that they obtain enough of this humble trace element. It is necessary for a healthy immune system, and also fights skin problems such as acne and boils, and helps reduce the inflammation of sore throats. It is further needed for cell division, and is needed by the tissues of the hair, nails and skin. Zinc is used in the growth and maintenance of muscles. Children, for normal growth and sexual development also require zinc. It also seems as if zinc helps to control the oil glands, and is also required for the synthesis of protein and collagen that is great for wound-healing and healthy skin.
Chromium Picolinate: Chromium picolinate is a combination of the trace mineral chromium and picolinic acid. Picolinic acid is a natural metabolite (a naturally occurring product of metabolism) found in breast milk. Chromium supplied in this form is more easily absorbed and used by the body. Chromium is an essential trace mineral. It is found naturally in a variety of foods, including beef, poultry, and potatoes. Yet despite its natural prevalence, many Americans are simply not getting enough chromium in their diets. Chromium is critical to a healthy diet because it regulates the body’s insulin function, enabling its cells to perform many important functions, like metabolism, muscle building, and nervous system support. Here’s how it works: The body secretes insulin upon eating. This insulin then binds to cells, unlocking them so that they can absorb glucose, a form of sugar, out of the bloodstream. Once the glucose is absorbed, the cells use it as fuel to power all their necessary functions. This process cannot be performed effectively, however, without chromium. Failure to receive the necessary chromium intake can lead to impaired insulin activity, or insulin resistance. When the body becomes insulin resistant, more glucose remains in your bloodstream, often getting stored away as fat rather than being burned for energy as intended. Proper chromium intake can ensure your insulin is functioning optimally. Along with healthy insulin function, chromium has been associated with improved brain chemical activity
Maltodextrin: It is a flavorless, easily digestible carbohydrate made from natural cornstarch. The starch is cooked, and then acid and/or enzymes are used to break the starch into smaller polymers (a process similar to that used by the body to digest carbohydrate). Maltodextrin is a convenient source of energy and facilitates the fast delivery and uptake by muscle tissue and the brain of vital nutrients that aid in muscle glycogen replacement after exercise or prolonged stress. There are no vitamins or flavors added. Maltodextrin is pure carbohydrate and contains no additives nor does it contain significant quantities of protein, fat or fiber.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): Vitamin C also known as, ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, dehydroascorbic acid, the antiscorbutic vitamin, L-xyloascorbic acid and L-threo-hex-2-uronic acidy-lactone, is a much talked about vitamin, with people claiming it as a cure-all for may diseases and problems, from cancer to the common cold. Yet, this miracle vitamin cannot be manufactured by the body, and needs to be ingested. Vitamin C is required in the synthesis of collagen found in connective tissues, the manufacture of hormones, and the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids. Vitamin C also enhances iron bioavailability. Ascorbic acid is a great antioxidant and helps protect the body against pollutants. Because vitamin C is a biological reducing agent, it is also linked to prevention of degenerative diseases such as cataracts, certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. Ascorbic acid also promotes healthy cell development, proper calcium absorption, normal tissue growth and repair such as the healing of wounds and burns. It assists in preventing blood clots and bruising, and strengthening the walls of the capillaries. Vitamin C is needed for healthy gums, to help protect against infection, assisting in clearing up infections and is thought to enhance the immune system and help reduce cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and preventing arteriosclerosis.
