Did you notice how artificial ingredients crept into our lives? They are part of many foods now from drinks, yoghurts, gums, sugar-free foods to main foods that need to be sweetened.
The same revolution is happening with regards to stimulants such as caffeine. Suddenly there are coffee shops everywhere and every energy drink, fat loss formula, protein powder or even normal beverage contains some form of stimulant from ginseng to caffeine.
Your body is not supposed to be stimulated like this constantly. Taking in stimulants means your body goes on a roller-coaster of a ride during the day. Your body can become addicted to stimulants and your health can get affected.
Most stimulants give your body a rush and in many ways take it into the “flight or freight mode”, stressing your adrenals and signaling your body to shut down major functions. Your body is meant to operate by taking in good quality food on a regular basis. It was never designed for quick sugar or caffeine rushes.

One of LA Muscle’s founding principles has been not to put unnecessary stimulants in its formulas. This is why you don’t routinely find caffeine and other stimulants in LA Muscle’s fat burners, proteins or energy products.

If you do find that you are over-stimulated and you just cannot slow down, take A.M. De-Stress. 1-2 tablets before sleep can be very helpful in slowing you down and giving you a good night’s sleep with no come downs in the morning.
As a general rule, you should consume minimum stimulants in your day and rely more on carbohydrate-rich foods for energy.
