Before embarking on your 40 Day Stress Reduction Challenge, you must master the following points in order to truly feel any improvements.
A toxin free diet
Your body is not subjected to harmful inflammatory toxins such as dairy, heavy metals, gluten etc.
Sleep is important to your brain for many reasons. During sleep, you produce increased levels of growth hormones, which stimulate neurogenesis as well as mitochondrial growth. Sleep also strengthens connections between brain cells and improves your memory by allowing your brain to process experiences and solidify new memories .
Ensure your brain has access to high quality fats
Consuming a good amount of high-quality fats throughout the day will ensure your brain has enough fuel to keep it going and avoid triggering a stress response when it is low in fats. Full details on “5 Things you can do right now to Increase Mitochondria Function”
Enough Daily Water Intake
The adequate intake (AI) is recommended on average for Males is 3.1L/day and Females 2.4L/day in the age of 19-30. Drinking this amount of water per day is crucial for homeostasis. Weight management and human performance and functioning especially that of cognitive improvement & mood control [5,6] A lot of people might not realise that having a plentiful supply of water allows your energy producing cells in the body make energy more efficiently for the body as well as other hormones needed for optimum performance.
In order to get the full benefits of this challenge, you must be aware of methods to reduce stress. After all, cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress is mitochondria ‘kryptonite’ – meaning that your mitochondria will by default work at a much less efficiency. This challenge is to enhance mitochondria efficiency, not help them come out of a stressful state. For ways to reduce stress levels, refer to our blog. Link Below!
Disclaimer: Please do not purchase or use Shilajit + CoQ10 until you have mastered the fundamentals of creating a healthy environment for your mitochondria. Shilajit + CoQ10 is an accelerator of mitochondria efficiency. It cannot truly work to its best without addressing the prerequisites. You might find that after completing these 5 steps that you do not need any supplements for now, this is purely for people who wish to further enhance their performance and take themselves to the next level.
Why 60 days?
I am glad you asked! Many clinical studies using PrimaVie Shilajit (Found in your Head Honcho Supplement bottle) have shown that taking this supplement for approximately 8 weeks (60 days) will give you maximum results [5,6]. There have been instances where people have found results within the first 10 days, but why stop there right?
As with all supplements, we strongly recommend cycling off every 5 days for 2 days to avoid your body’s natural tolerance and ensure you are getting the maximum out of this challenge. However, if you decide to go the entire way because you feel great, go right ahead!
You have enough servings in your bottle to go the whole way! Also, Shilajit increases testosterone in males, you want to cycle off Shilajit as you don’t want your body to become reliant on it. Instead during these days try other brain boosting techniques such as bare foot yoga or expose your skin (and eyes, the gateways to the brain) to unfiltered sunlight for a few minutes every day
Dosages throughout the challenge
In the first 20 days we recommend 1 x scoops of Shilajit + CoQ10 to start the challenge off. Notice how you feel through the first 20 days, particularly on day 10- where people tend to feel the effects begin to kick in like increased brain energy, efficiency and productivity. Remember to Cycle off every 5 days.
Once you hit day 21 (I’m sure you will since you’ve read this far into the challenge, love the dedication) it is now time to double your dosage to a high range dosage (500mg/day of Shilajit). You should feel the benefits accelerate during this period. As all supplements go, notice your progress, compare to the previous 1 scoop per day period. Take 1 scoop in the morning on an empty stomach and another in the afternoon say around 1-4pm.
From day 41 to 60 it is time to reflect and customise your dosage of Shilajit + CoQ10 based on what worked best for you so far. Focus on this until the finish line. By this time, you will have reaped all the benefits of enhanced mitochondria functioning.
Well Done! It is truly now time to dominate your path.
If you are a gym goer or like the idea of increased testosterone (the life force that can get you anything you want in life), you can continue taking Shilajit + CoQ10 at your own pace for another 45 days (Total 90 days) for enhanced Testosterone according to numerous studies . If you have done so, please send a photo of your challenge card completed and a letter describing your journey to receive a 45-day Testosterone + Challenge + 10% off your next Shilajit Purchase!
