About PERC

PERC contains ingredients used by clinicians to improve energy production within the mitochondria, this is where each and every cell makes its own energy.  Stressors both acute and chronic drain the body of energy, improving the body’s ability to manage and control this stress response is critical to improving performance.  PERC uses a proprietary blend of amino acids and herbal extracts to improve the body’s response to physical, emotional, biological and chemical stressors, both acute and chronic.

The Science Behind PERC

  • Research on medical school students during exam periods reported improved concentration, performance. They also reported enhanced well-being, improved sleep and improved mood stability.
  • PERC normalizes neurotransmitters in the brain, without inducing excess neurotransmitter production. This equals improved mental and physical performance without overstimulation.

L-Carnitine
Our study indicates that oral administration of levocarnitine produces a reduction of total fat mass, increases total muscular mass, and facilitates an increased capacity for physical and cognitive activity by reducing fatigue and improving cognitive functions.

Rhodiola rosea

“...Typically generates no side effects, unlike traditional stimulants that possess addiction, tolerance and abuse potential, produce a negative effect on sleep structure, and cause rebound hypersomnolence or 'come down' effects.
Furthermore, single administration of these adaptogens effectively increases mental performance and physical working capacity in humans. R. rosea is the most active of the three plant adaptogens producing, within 30 min of administration, a stimulating effect that continues for at least 4-6 h.”1
“Acute R. rosea ingestion decreases heart rate response to submaximal exercise and appears to improve endurance exercise performance by decreasing the perception of effort.” 2
