Cyanocobalamin, Natural & Artificial Flavor.

ACT targets metabolic pathways to create optimal balance and
performance at the cellular level. Every cell in your body depends on
energy to perform the function of that cell. Most people eat foods
high in calories and low in nutrients... the very nutrients that your
cells need to perform their functions.

ACT uses the best of nature to deliver results. Specialized
crystalline extracts from fruits and vegetables and other extracts
from plants and herbs are combined to deliver results. A-C-T contains
the following:


ACT provides 100% of the RDA of Vitamin B-3, B-6 & B-12

Vitamin B-3: (niacin) is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many
aspects of health, growth, and reproduction.

Vitamin B-6: is involved in the functioning of some enzymes,
especially those involved in protein metabolism, the formation of
chemicals for transmission of impulses in brain and nerves, and in red
blood cell formation.

Vitamin B-12: is involved in the formation of the genetic material in
the nuclei of body cells (DNA), and in the formation of RNA, which is
another important chemical involved in protein synthesis.


GREEEN TEA, GUARANA & GINSENG are used in ACT to promote increased
energy, stamina and alertness.

GREEN TEA: is made from the tea plant which is naturally high is
various types of antioxidants. EGCG in Green Tea delivers antioxidant
activity about 25-100 times more potent than vitamins C & E.

GUARANA: (paullinea cupana) is a tropical plant with small red fruit
with a high caffeine content. The people of the Amazon region in
Brazil chew guaran? seeds as a source of energy or drink the powder
dissolved in water.

PANAX GINSENG: is prepared from the root of the Panax Ginseng, a plant
of the family Araliaceae. Panax Ginseng, a precious special produce
grown in the Chiang Pai mountains in China's northeastern provinces,
was adopted as a drug for treatment of diseases as early as the time
before the Han dynasty (founded in the year 206 BC). The rich
experience gained in the application of the Panax Ginseng as a drug by
physicians in the past two thousand years evidence that Panax Ginseng
is a drug full of therapeutic and nutritious actions. This is a
tremendously valuable herb. In China they call Ginseng a cure all.
Excellent to build resistance against stress, both mental and
physical. Has been considered by many people to slow the aging

STEVIA: is classified as a Dietary Supplement and can be used by you,
the consumer at your discretion. While Aspartame has only been around/
approved by the FDA since 1988, Stevia has been used in other
countries much longer. Search reveals that Stevia has been used for
centuries in South America, for decades in Japan.


L-ARGININE: An amino acid that can stimulate immune function and
promote the secretion of several hormones, including glucagon, insulin
and growth hormone. L-arginine is a protein amino acid present in the
proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or
conditionally essential amino acid. This means that under normal
circumstances the body can synthesize sufficient L-arginine to meet
physiological demands. There are, however, conditions where the body
cannot. L-arginine is essential for young children and for those with
certain rare genetic disorders in which synthesis of the amino acid is
impaired. Some stress conditions that put an increased demand on the
body for the synthesis of L-arginine include trauma (including
surgical trauma), sepsis and burns. Under these conditions, L-arginine
becomes essential, and it is then very important to ensure adequate
dietary intake of the amino acid to meet the increased physiological
demands created by these situations.

L-CARNITINE: - needed to release energy from fat. It transports fatty
acids into mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells. L-carnitine is made
in the body from the amino acids, lysine and methionine. However, in
situations of high energy needs, the need for L-carnitine can exceed
production by the body. L-carnitine transfers long-chain fatty acids,
such as triglycerides into mitochondria (a cell's energy powerhouse),
where they may be oxidized to produce energy. L-carnitine is a very
popular supplement that promotes growth and development. It is also
used for fat-burning, increasing energy, and improving resistance to
muscle fatigue. As a speculated muscle disease, liver disease, and
kidney disease fighter, L-carnitine has also been shown to help build
muscle and treat some forms of cardiovascular disease. It is also
great in dieting, as it reduces feelings of hunger and weakness.

CREATINE MONOHYDRATE: - A metabolite naturally synthesized in the body
that is essential for the regeneration of ATP (adenosine
triphosphate). ATP is the muscle's ultimate energy source.

TAURINE: - an amino acid derivative that appears to shield the heart
from harm. It's best known for empowering bile acids to clear
cholesterol from the body. It may also fight cellular troublemakers
that can damage the heart.

L-TYROSINE: - a nonessential amino acid is important to the structure
of almost all proteins in the body. Studies have suggested that
tyrosine may help people with depression. L-tyrosine is an amino acid
found naturally in our bodies. Tyrosine's main purpose is to support
the formation of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine
and epinephrine. Neurotransmitters are important because they carry
"messages" from one nerve cell to another and play a vital role in our
muscular function. Messages sent from the brain to a muscle, for
example, telling it to contract or relax are sent via
neurotransmitters. A loss in these neurotransmitters can lead to
physical and mental burnout and fatigue, as well as depression. L-
Tyrosine accounts for as much as 90% of the production of these
neurotransmitters, which are synthesized directly from this amino

POTASSIUM: The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of Potassium for
adults is 4,700mg. Our wonderful drink has 450mg.
