MAX ENERGY Supports Energy Production and Glucose Metabolization


MAX ENERGY is specifically formulated to support both the adrenals and the thyroid as it is critical that these key glands function in unison with one another.

When the body has been under consistent stressors for a prolonged period of time, excessive cortisol is produced and the active metabolic hormones from the thyroid are suppressed.

To support one and not the other is missing the key factor in total energy production and metabolism.

MAX ENERGY is the best supplement on the market for overall glandular support.

The body has an amazing ability to perform many tasks at the same time; however its main concern is always survival. The PeakBio nutritional model recognizes that performance and the ability to gain lean body mass is in direct competition with the body’s ability to manage survival.

When there is competition for hormone production survival will always predominate at the expense of anabolic and metabolic hormones. The key to the optimal balance is to keep two little glands known as the adrenals fuelled and content while modifying unhealthy lifestyle choices that would cause more burden. One has to remember that intense exercise and muscle breakdown is a stress to the body and maintaining optimal adrenal health is pivotal to being able to reach the next level of performance.


No bigger than a walnut and weighing less than a grape, each of your two adrenal glands sits like a tiny pyramid on top of a kidney. Don't let their size fool you however; these powerful little endocrine glands manufacture and secrete steroid hormones such as cortisol, estrogen and testosterone that are essential for life, health and vitality. They modulate the functioning of every tissue, organ and gland in your body to maintain homeostasis during stress and keep you alive. They also have important effects on the way you think and feel.

The main purpose of your adrenals is to enable your body to deal with stress from every possible source, ranging from injury and disease to work and relationship problems. It is through the actions of the adrenal hormones that your body is able to mobilize its resources to escape or fight off danger (stress) and survive. In a more primitive society that would mean being able to run away quickly, fight or pursue an enemy or game, endure long periods of physical challenge and deprivation, and store up physical reserves when they are available. In modern society, these same responses are triggered by such circumstances as a difficult boss, air pollution, family quarrels, financial problems too little sleep and overindulgence in or sensitivities to food or drugs.


Coleus forskohlii

Coleus forskohlii's key constituent Forskolin resensitizes cell receptors by activating the enzyme adenylyl cyclase and increasing the intracellular levels of cAMP. cAMP is an important signal carrier necessary for the proper biological response of cells to hormones and other extracellular signals. It is required for cell communication in the hypothalamus/pituitary gland axis and for the feedback control of hormones.


This herb is considered an adaptogen which is an herb that works to normalize physiological function, working on the HPA axis and the neuroendocrine system.

Rhodiola rosea

Rhodiola rosea exerts an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental performance, particularly the ability to concentrate in healthy subjects (Darbinyan et al., 2000; Spasov et al.,2000b; Shevtsov et al., 2003) and burnout patients with fatigue syndrome (Olsson et al., 2009). Rhodiola rosea's effects potentially are related to optimizing serotonin and dopamine levels and it has been used in Russia for centuries to help subjects cope with stressful lives.


L-Tyrosine can be converted by neurons in the brain to dopamine and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), hormones which are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels are enhanced and a feeling of contentment often occurs. L-Tyrosine is also a precursor of two thyroid hormones.

Eleutherococcus senticosus

The herb E. senticosus contains the constituent lipophilic which can fit into hormone receptors. It is useful when the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) is depleted. Symptoms of this condition include fatigue, stress, neurasthenia and sore muscles associated with the hypo-functioning of the endocrine system and adrenal exhaustion.


Astragalus is classified as an adaptogen, an herb that increases the body's endurance and resistance to a wide array of physical, chemical, and biological stressors. Adaptogens help normalize the functioning of various body systems by affecting the action of hormones. Adaptogens are usually beneficial in treating chronic conditions. They have been found to enhance the immune response, reduce inflammation, stabilize blood sugar, and support the hormone systems, particularly the adrenal and pituitary glands. 


Bioperine® is the only source of piperine to obtain patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. When Bioperine® was administered orally to healthy humans in a dose of 5 mg per person per day, the serum levels of different tested nutrients significantly increased by up to 60%.
