Guarana Berries and GingsengWhy do we use Guarana, Ginseng and Beef in Lightning Rods?
Guarana is used for its delicious flavoring and, of course, for the exponential caffeinated zap it promises! Ginseng assists the body to restore itself to health and it has valuable beneficial effects on sports performance. Beef provides Protein, all the Amino Acids and complex B-Vitamins to deliver the Guarana and Ginseng to the body in the most effective manner for sustained energy.

What exactly are Guarana and Ginseng? And what are their positive attributes?
Guarana are native to the Amazon basin and found especially in the rainforest of Brazil. While guarana features large leaves and clusters of flowers, it is best known for its fruit, which is about the size of a coffee berry. Each fruit contains about one seed, which contains approximately three times as much caffeine as coffee beans. A 2007 study assessed acute behavioral effects in typical doses of guarana extract. Memory, alertness and mood were increased, confirming previous results of cognitive improvement following consumption of guarana.

grows in the Northern Hemisphere in Eastern Asia (mostly northern China, Korea, and eastern Siberia), typically in cooler climates; and also in Vietnam, where is the southernmost ginseng found. This herb, named in the Series Panax ginsengs, are the adaptogenic herbs, principally Panax ginseng and is promoted as an adaptogen (a product that increases the body's resistance to stress), one which can, to a certain extent, be supported with reference to its anticarcinogenic and antioxidant properties.

What is the SYNERGY?
Synergy is a phenomenon where the parts together have a much greater value than they do individually. Lightning Rods are a prime example of a synergistic effect. The protein based stick is enhanced with Guarana and Ginseng. This process of combining these ingredients in unison creates added value to the caffeine promise in the Guarana, making it release in a more even and long lasting manner. The Ginseng acts as an additional benefit to aid in restoration and together they provide focus and cognitive elevation. The final synergy is provided by these natural enhancers forming the great taste of our Original Flavor!Lightning Rods are gluten free!

Are Lightning Rods products gluten free?
s. There is no presence of gluten (gliadin) in the caramel color or high fructose corn syrup (sweetener) used in our Lightning Rods. Gliadin protein intolerance is generally associated with products derived from wheat, oats, rye, barley and millet. Lightning Rod products do not contain any of these grains.
