Gymchat 235 - Supplementation for Focus & Stress Relief (Kurtis Frank)

Can you improve focus & reduce stress with nutritional supplements?


Is it possible to improve mental focus or reduce stress with nutritional supplements?

There have been a number of claims surrounding these areas - particularly concerning both Rhodiola Rosea and Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR). This week we'll be examining these two in detail; discussing exactly what works (and the research surrounding it) and what doesn't. Helping us uncover this fascinating topic is Examine.com's own Kurtis Frank, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.


If you've got questions/comments for Kurtis or Josh, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat. And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
