A Review of Onnit 180

Most if not all of us have done it: going out on a Friday or Saturday night and having too much to drink. For those who travel a lot, there is not doubt that at one time or another you have experienced the beat-down that a lot of people who travel like to call jet lag. Then there comes that Saturday or Sunday morning you regret what you did the previous night or the day following the flight that you wish there could be something, anything, to help you deal with feeling bogged down.

How does Onnit 180 work?

The Onnit 180 Drink mix is made up of ingredients from the revolutionary Alpha BRAIN nootropic formula as well as other antioxidants, vitamins, ashwagandha and 5-HTP. Onnit 180 is formulated to be absorbed very fast and its delicate balance of ingredients are formulated to help you clear the mental fog that is associated with sleep deprivation, hangovers and laborious travel and helps you make a quick recovery from these three conditions.

It is a well known fact that physical as well as mental fatigue can lead to irritability and less than stellar performance. One of the solutions that Onnit proposes to counter this is to supplement your diet with potent antioxidants as well as vitamins to help fight these symptoms. Onnit 180 contains a number of neuroprotective antioxidants, such as bacopa monniera and vinpocetine that help with increased cerebral blood flow and healthy brain cells. These antioxidants have also been known to help with mental agility and clarity.Onnit 180

The stress of jetlag is associated with a change in time zones that leads to an imbalance in the production of cortisol in our bodies. Although the most common remedy for this is rest and sleep, not a whole lot of us have the luxury of taking a nap right after a flight. Sleep depravity, which is also common when one travels, can make the symptoms of jetlag worse. In order to combat these two bodily stresses, Onnit 180 incorporates Phosphatidylserine which has been proven to help with the leveling of cortisol levels which allows individuals recover and improve their cognitive performance fast.

Remember how I stressed the importance of getting up and running as soon as possible? Well, Onnit 180 contains neurotransmitter precursors for serotonin and dopamine. These precursors help our bodies synthesize the dopamine and serotonin that is required in order to deal with the irritability caused by mental fatigue.

In addition to this, Huperzine Serrata and Alpha-GPC help boost bodily acetylcholine levels in order to help improve concentration and alertness. The ashwagandha found in Onnit 180 has stress-reducing and anti-fatigue properties which help in improving physical performance. As you can see, Onnit 180 is the perfect solution for you if you are looking for a quick solution when you need accelerated recovery.

As an icing on the cake, Onnit 180 also adds in B Vitamins, Siberian Ginsen, potassium iodide and zinc in order to combat the effects of radiation that are experienced by passengers who go on long high altitude flights.

One of the biggest deterrent to intentional travel is jetlag. A huge number of people who love traveling say they they cannot do it as much as they would like due to the fact that there will be jetlag waiting for them at the end of their flights.

So the answer to the above question is absolutely yes. Onnit 180 does work!

And it does not work only for those who travel often. I have also used it for those Friday nights I have gone out not keeping in mind that I had to be on my desk by 9 A.M the following morning. I just take one serving in a glass of water, hop into the shower and by the time I get out, I am as good as new.

How to use Onnit 180

Before I lay down the instructions for how you ought to use Onnit 180 . There is one thing to keep on mind. Onnit 180 is not designed to be a daily supplement. It is specially formulated to help your body rebound from a number of specific stressful situations that may include the following:

  • For those who fly – If you would not like to experience any of the nasty effects of flying, take 30 minutes before your flight and within 30 minutes of landing. If your flight is less than four hours, then make sure that you distribute your servings evenly on either side of your flight.
  • For those who are looking to pull an all nighter – There are lots of reasons why one would like to pull an all nighter. In order to fight the sleep deprivation that this will obliviously cause, take one serving of Onnit 180 to help you stay awake. If you would like an extra boost, have one more serving after getting your beauty sleep.
  • For the pity party – Everyone who has ever partied a little bit too hard will attest to the fact that a hangover is the worst. If you have the blues, just have one serving of Onnit 180 in a tall glass of water. After you are done, go for a walk or take a long shower. You will feel as good as new after that.
