Target Endurance
Energy Boosting Supplement For Improved Stamina & Endurance
(Prepared by treelite.com)

Millions are exhausted in America today and they don’t have any idea what to do about it except to take stimulating drugs like caffeine. Over time, these drive the body into even deeper exhaustion. Here are some real solutions.

First of all, don’t be afraid to REST! Our Western life-style doesn’t make much allowance for this. We tend to push ourselves until we are completely exhausted. But the body was designed to require periodic rest. So accept the fact that you may need to be a “couch potato” for awhile while your body builds up its reserves of strength. To put it bluntly, you have to love yourself enough to say “NO!” In the same vein, when a friend is down, your support in the decision to rest will be most helpful to the recovery.

When we’re really down in the dust without much strength to live like we used to, the first logical thing for many of us is to throw a pity party. To complain to loved ones might elicit a little comfort, even though it doesn’t solve the problem. Don’t hesitate to give your body some credit for putting up with a lot of stress for long periods of time—at your insistence. This is no time to be angry at it for letting you down from time to time. Most of us know we have been stretching our luck too far, and then we’re angry when it catches up with us. We’d rather blame the boss or the husband/wife or kick the cat.

The first thing to do is to find the cause. Extreme fatigue can be brought on by food allergies, for example. Look for an association of diet and depression, anxiety, rapid heart rate, perspiration, slow response to stimuli (making it dangerous to drive), bloating and fever. Strong food craving are another sign of allergy to those foods.



The cause has also been blamed on chronic viral or bacterial infections that keep the body worn down. The Epstein-Barr virus used to be accused most often, but that is now hotly debated. Candida yeast infections are commonly blamed, also. For both problems, look for symptoms like swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, confusion and inability to concentrate. It is a fact that heightened immune activity causes sleepiness, which automatically preserves energy for the battle. Normally, this kind of fatigue is temporary.

Sometimes the cause is not enough sleep. Almost a third of Americans have trouble sleeping at night, and two-thirds of all workplace accidents are caused by those who are sleepy. Naps are appropriate and natural after lunchtime.

Low thyroid function is also a common problem. The thyroid must govern the body’s rate of living (rate of metabolism), and when it produces too little thyroxin, the body slows down and seems tired all the time. Notice other symptoms like dry skin, brittle nails, thinning hair, sensitivity to cold, etc.

Anemia is another common cause, which puts menstruating women at risk. Along with iron, folic acid is important.

Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, is another way to cut the body’s energy simply because it doesn’t have enough fuel, or can’t absorb or use it when it’s available.

PMS and other hormone imbalances are often the culprit. Mental depression is also a cause of chronic fatigue and can almost paralyze a person.

Target Endurance, an amazing "Energy-Stamina" combination!



In today's society, energy drinks are becoming increasingly popular. Unfortunately, these energy drinks are usually loaded with sugar and caffeine, which give a temporary energy boost that is followed by an equally dramatic energy drop. In addition, these drinks gradually reduce a person's overall energy function by over-stressing energy-producing glands like the pancreas and adrenals.

Target Endurance Formula
is a caffeine-free nutritional supplement that gradually helps improve stamina and endurance by increasing energy production inside the cells.

The core of this supplement is amino acid chelated minerals— zinc, calcium, phosphorus, iodine and potassium—which have been chelated to amino acids that direct these minerals to the mitochondria of the cell, where they are used in the Kreb cycle for energy production. Research showed that animals given a blend of chelated minerals zinc, copper and potassium were able to increase endurance levels by over 400 percent.

These amino acid-chelated minerals have been combined with other herbs and nutrients that increase energy production to create a formula that can provide a genuine, long-term energy boost when taken regularly. Target Endurance is useful for athletes or general exercise to enhance endurance and stamina. It is also useful for people who are chronically weakened or fatigued due to illness.

Here is more information about the ingredients in Target Endurance:

Calcium is an essential mineral for the building of strong bones and muscles. It is also a key element for the maintenance of a regular heartbeat and for the transmission of nerve impulses. It is an essential mineral that plays a role in muscle contraction and will help prevent muscle cramps during physical activity.

Phosphorus is another mineral essential for the formation of bones. It also plays a major role in cell growth, contractions of the heart muscle and kidney function. It aids in the conversion of food to energy and in the uptake and utilization of vitamins.

Iodine supports the thyroid gland in times of stress by reducing mental and physical fatigue. It helps to metabolize excess fat and helps support those trying to lose weight.

Bee pollen has been called "nature's super food" as it is high in B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, proteins and macro- and micro-minerals that promote energy.

Eleuthero root is an adaptogenic herb that helps the body during periods of stress. It supports the immune system, increases energy and mental alertness and prevents adrenal burnout caused by ongoing physical or mental challenges. It is invigorating and fortifying without being stimulating.

Gotu Kola herb supports the heart and circulation, the kidney and the liver. It contains asiaticoside, which has been shown to accelerate wound healing and cleanse the blood. It also stimulates the central nervous system and is considered an excellent food for the brain. Gotu kola has a reputation both as an energy tonic and an aid to memory.

Capsicum
fruit stimulates blood circulation and flow, giving a short-term boost to energy production. The combination of eleuthero root, gotu kola and capsicum has also been tested in animal endurance studies and has been shown to improve stamina and prevent fatigue.

Licorice root is a powerful energy booster with anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic properties. Licorice root helps support adrenal function. It has a long-time history for promoting stamina and endurance and relieving thirst. It also helps balance blood sugar levels to overcome sugar and caffeine addiction.

Ginger is another stimulating herb that benefits circulation and digestion. It is especially helpful for improving circulation in the pelvic region and has a more sustained effect than capsicum.

Glutamine is an amino acid important for mental ability as it is converted to glutamic acid in the brain and increases the amount of GABA needed. It is also essential in reducing fatigue and maintaining a healthy digestive tract.

Choline bitartrate, a vitamin, is required for gallbladder regulation and liver function and the metabolism of fat and cholesterol. It is also important in nerve transmission and hormone production.

Vitamins: Target Endurance also contains the following vitamins: B-6, B-12, C, niacin, folic acid, pantothenic acid. These B-complex vitamins, combined with vitamin C, have been labeled anti-stress vitamins because of their ability to support the adrenal glands, increase energy production and help the body cope better with stress.

Suggested Use
For athletes or people who need more stamina, energy or endurance, use 1-2 capsules one to three times daily. Target Endurance will not produce an immediate energy burst. It has a gradual, cumulative effect, so it may take several days to start seeing the full benefits of this blend.
