The key ingredients in the potent mix

When I was asked to review a new product – an energy drink
of sorts – that was launching in the UK, I was a little hesitant.  I tend to restrict my reviews to product I put
on my body, not inside my body.           
However, I was swayed by FTN, a wholefood stem cell recovery
drink, as its ingredients are completely natural, and free of chemicals.     
There’s also been some research published about the drink,
so at least I had the reassurance that it has been road tested a little more
than some dodgy online production.   Plus
the 5k-plus Facebook fans helped give me some confidence, too.       
The drink promises a plethora of benefits, such as a quicker
recovery from a sports injury or workout, supporting skin health, and even
slowing the aging process.  It claims
that its potent blend of super-ingredients support the life cycle of adult stem
cells.  Confused?  I was. 
So here’s the science-y bit straight from the horse’s mouth…      

The science-y bit:      

When stem cells divide, each
new cell has the potential to become another cell with a specialised function,
for example a muscle cell, or a red blood cell, or a skin cell and so on. New
stem cells are able to migrate to an area of the body where they are needed
most. This is vital in helping the body to heal and repair, replenish skin
cells and to keep us looking young. 

However, the natural ageing
process slows down this process. Considerable research, including research from
the prestigious MIT, has shown that FTN’s unique blend is able to assist in
helping adult stem cells to spread and divide, which when combined with proper
diet and exercise work together to support the maintenance of optimal health
and allow them to work more efficiently. 
The drink contains five key
ingredients which make magic:

Green
Tea
 Contains antioxidants that help maintain a healthy metabolism and
support the health of your digestive tract. Green tea can also help improve
skin health thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Wild Blueberry Extract Rich in antioxidants, wild
blueberry extract helps promote maintenance of a healthy brain, cardiovascular,
vision, joint and urinary tract function.

Vitamin D An essential nutrient needed by the
body, it helps maintain healthy bones, teeth and a normal immune system.
Vitamin D is mainly obtained from sunlight, so it is often in short supply
through the winter months.    

Amino Acids Think of amino acids as pieces of a
complex protein puzzle. They can be disassembled and reassembled to build and
repair all kinds of tissue in the body. This makes them vitally important to
every one of your body’s functions.     

   

Organic Blue-Green Micro-Algae The key ingredient,
and only found in FTN, this super food is rich in proteins, essential fatty
acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene and a vast array of micro-nutrients that
supercharge the body’s ability to maintain overall wellbeing.

  
So that’s the marketing
spheel but of course, the proof is in the reviewing.   
The drink comes in two different flavours, citrus and super berry.  I opted for the super berry.

I’ve been taking the energy drink – a 60ml shot – every day
for 12 days.  How do I feel?  Well before all that, I want to tell you that
the drink tastes bitter!  All those
potent ingredients do not make a smoothie. 
However, as it’s a shot it can be downed quickly, plus it’s not really
about the taste (though I thought it worth a mention).         
Tasting aside, I’ve found that since taking the shot I’m
less lethargic and have more energy, which is a real surprise for this time of
year.  My energy levels seemed to make a
subtle peak, and I’m not sure if this is the placebo effect, or FTN
itself.    
I’ve been getting up much earlier than usual on weekends
(normally I’ll hide under the duvet until well after 10am).  Notably, I’ve also been working harder at the
gym and recovering quicker. 
 
Normally, my gym routine consists of 5 minutes on the
treadmill, then the cross trainer, followed by some quick-burst planks.  This is punctuated with periods of
boredom. 
However, since taking the drink I’ve found that I can push
myself harder during workouts, going 20 minutes on the cross trainer and
working out until I’m puffed out, rather than giving up before.  I also haven’t been suffering the two days of
pain and limping that usually follows a workout.     
Now this could all be a wonderful coincidence.  And of course, things work differently on
different people. 
However, despite being a sceptic, it did seem like FTN was
doing something, if not helping me
along my day at the very least.  I guess
the real proof would be now I’m not taking the drinks, to see if I go back to
my sluggish ways.
