Performix SST is about energy, metabolism and mental focus. To get you acquainted, its liquid capsules contain ingredients such as caffeine, niacin, B12 and Huperzine A to name a few. In the “old” days, most of the supplements were mostly about boosting energy levels. More recently, a lot of supplements are driving home the idea of enhancing mental focus, which is a genius idea!
There are many areas of our lives where enhanced mental focus is useful, but one area that we don't often think about is the exercise session. It's not just about having enough energy to start and continue the workout – it's about getting every benefit you can out of it because you are 100% present! On the Performix website, they have a quote that captures the supplement's sentiment: “Don't count your workouts. Make your workouts count.” Is that great, or what?!
The serving size on the box states it is 2 capsules, and the directions recommend beginning with 1 capsule, then assess your tolerance. I am certainly no stranger to supplements in this category, but even I start slowly. The first couple of days, I started with 1 capsule on an empty stomach and noticed it worked quickly. Within about 15-20 minutes, I felt nauseated when walking the dogs, but it went away after maybe 10 minutes or so. I can usually tell when I am focused in the morning because when I am, I move intentionally and methodically from one completed task to the next. When I lack focus, I jump from task to task and often return to those I didn't finish in the first place. Although noticing increased focus can be subtle and subjective, I could tell that with Performix the focus was increased. I almost didn't realize how I was managing the morning tasks until I thought about it.
On day 3, I took 1 capsule upon awaking, and then laid back down to watch the news for a few minutes. While the energy wasn't exactly moving me out of the bed, I wasn't nauseated, perhaps it was because I was lying down, not paying attention, or just not walking around. About an hour later, I took the second capsule and waited. No nausea, just focus and energy that lasted for a few hours. Not only were my morning tasks accomplished, but this energy and focus definitely added a new dimension to my weight-lifting routine!
Overall, Performix SST delivers what it intends to. I did feel increased energy and focus as I tackled my task list and while lifting weights. It goes without saying that the directions should be followed, and any precautions should be noted. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone looking to enhance their energy levels and focus, whether it's meeting that workout head on or getting through a long task list!
