Q: Is it vegetarian/vegan?A:Yes.
Q: Why vegetable capsules?A:Although the Bulletproof diet contains some animal-sourced protein, it also contains loads of healthy and delicious vegetables. Bulletproof strives to offer the best quality products possible, and vegetable capsules do just that. Although they are more expensive than the standard animal-sourced gelatin capsule, they offer some great benefits compared to gelatin. They’re 100% natural, vegetarian/vegan friendly, and more stable than gelatin when exposed to heat and humidity.
Q: What is the source of the vegetable capsules?A:The plant fiber used to make the vegetable capsules is all-natural alpha cellulose derived from the pulp of specially selected, high-grade Southern soft pine trees.
Q: I took Forbose and felt light-headed or another symptom of hypoglycemia, why?A:Unlike most sugars, ribose (one of the key ingredients in Forbose™) can actually lower blood glucose. If prone to hypoglycemia, take Forbose with meals to counter that effect.
Q: The dark brown, light brown and off-white particle sizes in my capsule are not uniform, is this normal?A:Yes, these are all-natural ingredients and visual appearance may vary. The larger particles are from the Coleus forskohlii root.
Q: What are excipients and flow agents? Why is there rice on the label?A:Excipients and flow agents such as rice ingredients are part of the manufacturing process required to encapsulate ingredients. Bulletproof formulates its products with the latest technologies and adopts new and improved technologies as they become available. We have chosen to use the outermost layer of the rice grain (rice hull or bran) because it is one of the cleanest excipients available. Other options are less natural, like polydimethylsiloxane, sodium bicarbonate, stearic acid, and powdered cellulose. We use the least possible amount of rice hull or bran as necessary in the manufacturing process, ensuring minimal rice content that carries no discernible impact on the amount of complex carbohydrates in your individual diet.
The body makes energy every day and stores it in re-chargeable "batteries" called ATP. The problem is, anytime maximum performance is demanded from the body or brain, it’s easy to end up with more depleted ATP batteries than your system can handle. Instead of getting recycled, they simply go to waste, draining energy that could have been used to run an extra mile, or transform an idea from good to great.
Forbose™ helps plug this persistent leak in the body’s energy cycle, boosting cells’ ability to recycle ATP and turning that otherwise discarded fuel into extra stamina and performance.
It’s almost like discovering a hidden "extra tank" worth of energy.
Take two capsules before or after activity.
Amount Per Serving (2 Vegetable Capsules):
Other Ingredients: Modified cellulose (vegetable capsule), rice extract blend, ascorbyl palmitate
Note:Unlike most sugars, ribose (one of the key ingredients in Forbose™) can actually lower blood glucose. If prone to hypoglycemia, take Forbose with meals to counter that effect, and don’t take more than 10 grams at a time.
To recharge and recycle those ATP "batteries," the body needs more ATP to get the cycle going again. One of the best ways to get almost unlimited ATP energy is by processing blood sugar (glucose) into a rare form of sugar called ribose (one of the key ingredients in the Forbose™ formula).
Without Forbose, the way to get ribose is to push mitochondria to the limit (tough physical workouts or intense brainstorming sessions will do the trick), then wait patiently (for about 24 hours), feeling tired and sore while your body generates ribose.
Of course, to complete the cycle and re-capture all that normally wasted energy, two more pieces of the puzzle are necessary. Starting with…
Coleus forskohlii, an ayurvedic herb used since ancient times that just happens to stimulate your natural levels of “cyclic adenosine monophosphate,” or cAMP for short, a compound that helps power-up those run-down ATP batteries so your body can actually access all those extra energy reserves.
Magnesium, the final piece of the Forbose formula, is required by the ATP-synthesizing protein in mitochondria, and acts as an essential cofactor in this energy-recycling process.
The unique Forbose formula puts all three of these ingredients together in proven amounts to increase energy and speed recovery: It provides ribose, a fast and efficient way for the body to make extra ATP, helps boost cAMP to recover normally wasted ATP energy, and offers extra magnesium to help the recycling process along.
Forbose is one of the most powerful ways to boost energy and enhance your body’s natural resilience. Use it to transform workouts, recovery, and brainstorming sessions—and help mitochondria thrive.
