L-Citrulline Malate - If you're regularly involved in strenuous exercise or are concerned about your cardiovascular health, you might find a supplement called L-citrulline malate of potential value.

For starters, do you know the most common sources of caffeine? Well, maybe two of the sources aren't too hard to name -- coffee and tea leaves. But did you know kola nuts and cocoa beans are also included among the most common caffeine sources? And do you know how much caffeine content can vary from food to food?

Caffeine content can range from as much as 160 milligrams in some energy drinks to as little as 4 milligrams in a 1-ounce serving of chocolate-flavored syrup. Even decaffeinated coffee isn't completely free of caffeine. Caffeine is also present in some over-the-counter pain relievers, cold medications, and diet pills. These products can contain as little as 16 milligrams or as much as 200 milligrams of caffeine. In fact, caffeine itself is a mild painkiller and increases the effectiveness of other pain relievers.

N-Acetyl Tyrosine - Like L-Tyrosine, NATL is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of protein. We can absorb Tyrosine through our diets, in foods like meats, fish, eggs, nuts, etc., but can receive a more potent dose through supplementation.

Acai is an indigenous berry found in the rain forests of the Amazon. This fruit has been heralded for centuries as a healing, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting fruit. Research reveals this antioxidant-rich berry may help suppress and repair oxidative damage. Let’s take a look at twelve health benefits of acai berries.
Pomegranate juice has been analyzed to have greater antioxidant capacity than red wine, grape juice, cranberry juice, green tea or acai juice.2 Drinking pomegranate juice measurably reduces oxidative stress (the toxic effects of free radicals) in healthy humans.3 Much research has shown that pomegranate’s potent antioxidant capacity provides protection against heart disease, cancer and cognitive impairment. Pomegranate was one of the earliest cultivated fruits, and has been prominent throughout history in art, culture, and religion, from the story of the seasons in Greek mythology to Romeo and Juliet to the Bible.
