What can I take to improve mental focus and give me much needed energy?



Hi, Sharon. EFX Sports does offer a number of products that will support focus and energy. Obviously, every individual has their own unique body chemistry.

Therefore, some products are more suitable for certain people than others. This is due to their sensitivities to various ingredients, along with additional features that the product offers.

That said, I’m going to list the top 3 products in this category and give you a general overview of the primary features of each product.

Lean Fix

This has been my favorite metabolic enhancer for the last 6 years. Lean Fix contains a blend of herbal ingredients that help increase your metabolism and stabilize blood sugar levels to keep hunger in check. They also eliminate excess water retention in the body.

Lean Fix does have a mild stimulant effect from the caffeine and tea extracts. Certainly, this is welcomed by consumers looking for an energy boost with enhanced focus.

But, this product doesn’t contain exorbitant amounts of potent stimulants the way many other metabolic boosters do. Particularly, many times these result in unwanted side effects, like a racing heart rate, lightheadedness, anxiety, or gastrointestinal discomfort.

Kre Alkalyn Hardcore

This unique product contains the same high quality, pH-buffered form of creatine as the original Kre Alkalyn. This supports strength and recovery. However, it has additional ingredients that have been synergistically formulated to support energy levels, focus, and fat loss. Kre Alkalyn Hardcore does contain caffeine. It also has theobromine and theophylline, which are naturally occurring compounds that help potentate and extend the fatigue combating properties of the caffeine. The maximum dose is 3 capsules. But, it is a good idea to begin by taking 1 or 2 capsules to access your tolerance level.

Training Ground PRE

This is EFX Sports supreme pre-workout formula. Training Ground PRE was formulated with very serious athletes in mind. Lean Fix and Kre Alkalyn Hardcore were formulated more specific to fat loss. However, Training Ground PRE was formulated with maximum physical and athletic performance in mind. The combination of caffeine, tyrosine, and trimethylglycine will crank up energy levels and promote unwavering mental focus.

Its wide spectrum of additional ingredients: 1) boost nitric oxide levels to promote hyperemia or “muscle pumps” 2) Neutralize chemicals that cause muscle fatigue 3) Improve power output and 4) Speed muscle recovery. The serving size for this product is 1 full scoop. Again, I suggest beginning with only a half a scoop to access your personal tolerance level to this product.

Consult your physician before considering taking any stimulant containing supplements if you have high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, adrenal disorders, or anxiety,

I wish you all the best of success in your health and fitness endeavors!
