TianChi is a real energy drink focused on how you conserve and make energy. Stress causes energy loss due to putting the body in constant survival mode. The adaptogenic herbs in TianChi relax the nervous system and focus the brain in the frontal lobe. This promotes brain coherence – a state of balanced energy patterns indicating the entire brain is communicating.
One of the aspects of TianChi that makes it so unique is the utilization of nutrients to fuel the brain. Under constant stress, the requirement for nutrients needed for proper brain function is accelerated. This puts an enormous strain on the brain as it is already starving for nutrients. In my own personal experience of helping people with memory issues, I find that most people have a brain suffering from the starvation of certain nutrients. This has been going on for decades and creates suboptimal brain function and premature aging of the brain.
Some of the common complaints of chronically stressed people are feeling overwhelmed and slow—not being able to keep up with the flood of information and activity of modern living. TianChi’s blend of nutrients helps the brain power up and speed up, to keep up and enjoy life.
D-Ribose is food for ATP, the energy molecule that supplies most cellular energy. ATP is produced in the mitochondria of the cell. Athletes and chronically stressed people have one thing in common – an accelerated need for ATP. If it’s not replenished on a daily basis performance suffers. D-Ribose ensures you keep up with the demands for ATP.
Tyrosine is an amino acid the brain needs to make dopamine, the neurotransmitter that power up the brain and controls sugar cravings. Under normal circumstances you can make tyrosine out of another protein amino, phenylalanine. Stress interferes with your ability to make the conversion and so a direct supply of tyrosine becomes essential to your brain.
The best time for protein is the first meal of the day to power up the brain with dopamine and set it for the day. This is why we suggest TianChi first thing in the morning. The added tyrosine boosts dopamine and brings the energy up to the frontal lobe.
DMG or dimethylglycine, is a glycine derivative that enhances oxygen utilization and reduces lactic acid. I use it because it also supports the energy of the pituitary gland. This contributes to the concentration of energy in the frontal lobe and promotes brain coherence.
Choline is an essential nutrient needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, responsible for brain speed and memory. Acetylcholine is often lacking in all diseases involving memory loss and 90% of Americans are deficient in this nutrient. In certain situations such as autoimmune disease, the brain may break down the nerves own myelin sheath searching for choline. This contributes to the theory of starvation of the brain.
DMAE or dimethylethanolamine is an acetylcholine precursor and one of the original treatments for ADD. As people age, choline becomes more difficult to absorb and convert to acetylcholine so it’s best to have an alternative. DMAE helps the brain speed up and handle information.
Taurine and glycine are both inhibitory amino acids, meaning they calm the nervous system. Taurine helps detox the liver and is beneficial to the heart. Glycine combines with many toxic substances and assists in their removal from the body. It has a positive effect on memory and attention, and promotes good sleep. The use of Taurine and glycine contribute to the effect of TianChi creating what we call “Calm, Clear, Energy.”
