Nutrilite Siberian EnerG Ingredients
Nutrilite Siberian EnerG contains the following ingredients: Eleuthero root, Ginkgo Biloba extract, Schizandra, Acerola and Citrus, and Bioflavonoid concentrates.
Nutrilite Siberian EnerG is a combination of three herbal extracts in a formula which promotes benefits for the brain and increase in energy.
Eleuthero, commonly known as Siberian Ginseng has powerful antioxidant and adaptogenic properties. Its main benefits include inducing a temporary state of wellbeing and helping the body cope with stress, improving short term memory in healthy individuals and aiding mental and physical performance. Although it has been used to support endurance of athletes (especially in Russia), evidence for its effectiveness in these circumstances is mixed or inconclusive.
Schizandra is native to Japan and Russia where it was traditionally used to treat coughs, asthma, diarrhea and sweating. Although research is still in its early stage, it appears that Schizandra may also increase stamina and focus, as well as relieving stress and improving immunity. It appears to be relatively safe for most people; however side effects have been reported and include heartburn and central nervous system depression. Drug interactions may also be possible.
Ginkgo Biloba’s memory enhancing properties are one of its main advertised benefits. The plant acts to increase blood circulation, including peripheral circulation in the brain, with the result of improving cognitive function, particularly memory. Ginkgo benefits brain health overall through its powerful antioxidant properties. Ginkgo Biloba has been associated to some side effects such as headache, dizziness, nausea and diarrhea.
The manufacturer recommends taking 2 tablets of Nutrilite Siberian EnerG 2 times a day, preferably with meals. No reviews are available online.
- Halal certified formula
- Caffeine free supplement
- Natural herbal ingredients
- Several side effects, precautions and serious drug interactions associated to the main ingredients
- Lack of consumer testimonials to assess the formula’s effectiveness
- Rather expensive product (approximately $50 for a 25 days’ supply)
Nutrilite Siberian EnerG combines Siberian Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba and Schizandra, three botanical extracts, in a formula designed to build endurance and to promote brain health. Individually, the ingredients have been proven to possess properties in wither or both these main benefit areas; however the combination is not tested as such. We cannot therefore evaluate to what extent it will be effective and how much of the individual ingredient’s properties are available for the new formulation. Additionally, the lack of consumer reviews makes it difficult for us to list customer satisfaction and side effects (if any) experienced.
You should keep in mind that all the ingredients, although considered safe for the majority of consumers, have been reported to possess side effects and to interact with other drugs. This is why we highly recommend caution.
