The Bio-Typed plant oils in 12-Hour Energy™ Caps provide safe, non-stimulating, sustained energy, and contribute to improved mental, physical, and sexual health and well-being. Natural compounds in the oils provide support for the HPA axis and have been used traditionally as general tonics to improve physical and mental energy.* In a product use study, participants with average to low levels of daily energy reported a 111% improvement. Their scores more than doubled after two weeks of use, though most participants reported increased energy after the first day of use.* Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) Oils from the needles of the Scots pine are used as a natural energy promoter. The effects are believed to be due to the ability of compounds in the oil to influence the body's stress response and balance the HPA (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal) axis.*(1)Black spruce (Picea mariana) Like Scots pine, the Black spruce contains plant compounds in its oils which support the HPA axis.*(2) The HPA axis aids in regulation of mood, sexuality, alertness and energy use. Thyme (Thymus satureioides) Thyme (Thymus satureioides) is a plant from North Africa, which it grows in rocky, dry soil. The flowering part is distilled for the plant oils, which are often recommended in aromatherapy as a general tonic to improve physical, mental, and sexual health.*(3) Bio-Typed Plant Oils are 75 to 100 times more concentrated than herbal extracts.
