I first heard about MetaboliX Plus before the December hols. Honestly, I was a tad unsure of taking on a new supplement. After all, things have been working well with my regular doses of probiotics from iHerb and the occasional fish oil supplement.
But, I have also been struggling with low energy levels for some time. In between managing my freelance work and taking care of the family, some days the responsibilities do feel too heavy to bear.
When I heard that MetaboliX is safe, and helps to support energy production in our bodies in a way that only boosts the production of a co-enzyme that naturally occurs in our body, I jumped at trying it out myself.
What the supplement does is promote the body’s production of NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), a co-enzyme that is present naturally in every cell of our body and is essential to life.
It is known as the molecule of youth due to its role in cellular energy production and its ability to regulate the genes of aging. Unfortunately, as we grow older, the NAD+ levels in our body decline. MetaboliX Plus contains nicotinamide which is a precursor of NAD+.
I road-tested MetaboliX during our recent family holiday in Melbourne. As we took the red-eye flight and I knew I’d have trouble sleeping during the flight and be like a zombie the next day, I popped MetaboliX Plus supplement upon arriving at Melbourne airport in the morning.
I didn’t feel a surge of energy like that of a sugar or caffeine boost (which also typically precedes a crash.) Rather, it just felt like my energy was sustained over the entire day. Although I had close to zero sleep, I survived the first day without much ado (though I did take a power nap and that helped too.)
I continued to take the supplement throughout the trip and found that it easier to get through the entire day of activities and travelling, not to mention dealing with cranky and irritable kids on occasions.
Because I wasn’t battling tiredness, it became a lot easier to hold it together and stay calm even when one or two kids were fighting or throwing a tantrum. (This, to me, is the real impact of taking this supplement!)
MetaboliX Plus has an added ingredient – Boswellic acids – that helps reduce joint inflammation and pains. As I don’t have any major problems with this apart from the occasional neck ache, I will probably stick to just MetaboliX (without the “Plus”) from now on.
