Acacia Rigidula is a shrub from Mexico, known as the ‘black brush’ acacia. Acacia is an adrenergic amine. Simply stated, this means that it has certain effects similar to a ‘fight or flight’ response from your body. Imagine yourself walking down a dark and scary alleyway. You feel alert, focused and energized. Physically, your body has readied itself by increasing your heart rate, and has begun to circulate your blood to areas such as your heart and muscles. This response can be reproduced by acacia, making it an adrenergic amine.
Acacia Rigidula also increases your metabolic rate, which allows calories to burn at a higher rate. As well as increasing the rate of calorie burning, it increase burns fat as well. Fat can often remain in areas such as the midsection, resisting many diet and exercise efforts. The fat burning of acacia will allow those areas to disappear.
You can also benefit from increased circulation, blood flow to the muscles as well as heart rate. This is useful if you would like to increase your performance in the gym or on the field. As well as a circulation increase, stamina is increased. This boost lets you work hard in the gym, taking your work out as far as you would like to. Outside the gym, stamina can allow you to get through your workweek and juggle all of the responsibilities you have.
Acacia Rigidula Provides Energy, Drive and Focus
Acacia stimulates your body and gives you increased energy and feelings of focus. While this can allow you to concentrate on your work out, it can be even more beneficial outside of the gym. Energy, drive and focus can be key ingredients for a promotion at work. At school, the improved concentration levels can translate into a higher grade. Carrying the drive and energy throughout the day, you can live life to the fullest.
One of the neatest things about Acacia Rigidula is its’ common factor with dark chocolate. Dark chocolate, long praised for its anti-oxidant properties, is made from theobroma cocoa beans. When we eat dark chocolate, many people close their eyes and savor the moment. They feel bliss, happiness and relaxation. Why? Dark chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine or PEA, an alkaloid that makes you feel relaxed, happy and indulged. Acacia also contains PEA, which can make you feel relaxed, at peace and fully indulged.
