Advocare Spark is a unique multi-nutrient system that was developed as a nutritional source of energy and enhanced mental focus. It’s a sugar free with more than 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients that work synergistically to provide a healthy, balanced and effective source of energy that won’t overburden or over stimulate your body.
Advocare Spark contains an effective amount of caffeine to give you the quick boost you’re looking for, B vitamins to enhance your body’s natural ability to produce and sustain its own energy, and neuroactive amino acids that help increase your mental focus and alertness by supporting your brain’s ability to receive and send messages.
Advocare Spark powder is available either in individual packets or a large tub. It is sweetened with Sucralose (Splenda) although does contain 45 calories per serving. It contains GABA, which is an ingredient that most other energy drinks do not include. Advocare once made a product called “Kickstart Spark” that was controversially targeted towards children aged 4 and upwards.
GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is one of the most important amino acid which is produced within our bodies. In adult brains, it acts as the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter, working to calm neurons which are firing in an excited pattern.
GABA is synthesized from Glutamate, an excitatory neurotransmitter essential for good brain function. GABA essentially counterbalances the level of excitement in your neurons caused by excitatory brain chemicals such as Glutamate, helping to ensure you do not become over-stimulated or anxious. GABA benefits are numerous in this regard, ranging from improving your mood, ability to focus, promoting relaxation and helping to control stress.
However, despite the fact that GABA plays such an important role in the brain, there are serious doubts as to the benefits of GABA supplements. The nootropic value of GABA remains questionable because of its inability at crossing the blood-brain barrier in amounts which could enhance cognitive function.
In other words, when you ingest it as a supplement, it cannot reach the brain when it is circulated through your blood. Nonetheless, there is a body of anecdotal reports to support GABA as a useful tool for individuals seeking relief with symptoms resulting from ADHD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks and addictions.
