Alpinia Galanga Extract (SMILE®)

Part of the ginger family, Alpinia galanga is an Ayurvedic herb that is commonly used in Thai and Indonesian cooking. While you won’t notice any spicy taste to our SMILE® Upbeat Focus™ Bar (it actually has more of a chocolate taste), you should notice sustained alertness and mental focus for up to five hours with no stimulant energy, and thus no increase in heart rate or blood pressure. The particular extract used in SMILE® will amplify caffeine benefits, without the common “crash” most people notice with caffeine. This nootropic botanical extract has shown a demonstrated optimal improvement in alertness, and an improved ability to process new information. Alpinia galanga has been a part of Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, with a number of other beneficial uses.
