Amazon Exclusive coming at you!
Since we've received some feedback on our first renditions of Spark and Drift capsules... we wanted to offer you a special for each of these products.
We are heavily discounting both Spark & Drift for 40% off... exclusively on Amazon!
This special will run until we completely run out of stock, and it's a first come, first served basis!
Spark is our adaptogenic-nootropic (mood booster, brain booster, and stress reducer). It was forged to ignite your mornings with some additional positivity, energy, and more.
At Reforged, we have three end-states in mind when it comes to crafting quality formulations: synergy, absorption, and mitigation.
For Spark, it is synergy: every part of our components enhance the effects or experience of one another. You can see this with the mind & body performance benefits of each adaptogen in Spark.
Each component of Spark is used to synergistically work with one another, providing compounding benefits. While Spark is an adaptogenic powerhouse, we combined it with a focus-boosting nootropic as well. This allows Spark to help prepare you for a focus-intensive day.
In this section, we are going to talk about each component of Spark, and how they work together.
Bacopa Monnieri is a nootropic-adaptogenic herb that improves cognition as a result of its anxiety-reducing capabilities. In addition, bacopa monnieri has also been shown to improve long-term memory.
According to one double-blind study, Bacopa Monnieri improved attention and reduced anxiety & depression. This makes it a powerful nootropic to have in your arsenal.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that is known as the "King of Ayurvedic Herbs". According to a double-blind study, Ashwagandha reduced anxiety over the course of a 60-day trial.
Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogen known as the "golden root". Rhodiola Rosea helps promote health, strength, cognition, and more.
In regards to fatigue, one double-blind study showed that Rhodiola Rosea helped improve performance on work-related tasks by 20%. This study also showed significant improvements to brainpower as a result of the fatigue reduction.
We are very familiar with citicoline (or choline), as we use a form of it in our nootropic, Impulse. CDP-Choline is used to enhance brain power by improving information processing, memory, and focus/attention. In one double-blind study, it improved attention & focus in healthy adult women.
Drift is our Sleep Reinforcer that was forged to achieve the following goals:
As a result of better quality sleep, your brain is energized and ready for tomorrow's battle.
L-Glycine is an amino acid and nootropic that assists in improving our quality of sleep. According to a double-blind study, supplementing with L-Glycine reduced the time it took to fall asleep. As a result, it reduced daytime fatigue and improved brainpower.
Simply put: since sleep deprivation affects our mood and energy levels, supplementing with glycine has been shown to aid in improving brain power and reducing fatigue.
Magnesium is an essential micronutrient that aids in reducing blood pressure, improving bone mineral density, and improving sleep quality.
In one study, magnesium helped improve sleep in individuals over 51 years of age with poor sleep quality. Magnesium promotes GABA levels, which is a neurotransmitter that also helps with sleep.
We use magnesium glycinate so that it will work synergistically with l-glycine to improve its effects.
While it is typically used with caffeine, we extracted l-theanine for its calming and anxiety-reducing properties. L-Theanine is a nootropic found in green tea that helps promote relaxation and calmness. It also elevates GABA levels, making it a powerful component to have in Drift.
According to one study, l-theanine promoted uninterrupted sleep in boys with ADHD.
What sleep supplement is good without melatonin? Melatonin is a hormone that is normally made in our brains in the evenings that regulates sleep.
While our body typically produces it, supplementing with it has shown many benefits, like reducing the time it takes to sleep and improvements in sleep quality.
We use 1mg of Melatonin so you don't feel the next morning grogginess.
Remember that we will extend this special until we run completely out!
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time, Reforged Legion!

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a vital role in many bodily functions, including muscle and nerve function, blood sugar regulation, and bone health.
Despite its importance, many people do not get enough magnesium from their diets alone.
This is where supplements like magnesium glycinate can be helpful.
Magnesium glycinate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium that is easily absorbed by the body and has several potential health benefits.

Have you asked yourself why most people fail their diets?
A lot of it comes from extremes: huge diet restrictions, following a fad diet that's not prescribed to your body, and more.
Many of us go too extreme to the point of so much discomfort, which makes us actually fail rather quickly.
Most of the time, people stop their diets within 5 weeks.
So today, I wanted to shift your mindset towards nutrition.
In this post, we are going to go over 5 nutrition principles for success.
Let's dive in!
