Loss of Focus in Players

The Problem:

A single round can take more than four hours to play.  Asking anyone to concentrate for that long is a tall order even without asking them to multi-task with fine motor skills at the same time.  As the round progresses, players more easily become distracted and can start making easy mistakes.

Learning the swing and golf fundamentals, along with having the ability to hit quality and consistent shots during a round, is only part of the game. Another major aspect is having the ability focus for an entire round ensuring all of your practice pays off.

 

Select ingredients in DF-18 that optimize Focus:

A selection of high value micronutrients which improve focus, motor function, to help you stay focused under pressure in the moments that matter most.

Ashwagandha

Often referred to as the “King of Ayurvedic herbs,” (1) Ashwagandha’s ability to reduce stress and anxiety is well-known, with additional evidence suggesting it can modestly improve a host of other desirable effects.  These include modest improvements to strength output, glucose metabolism, lower cortisol; and many more.

Theobromine

Theobromine is an alkaloid present in Cacao/Chocolate that contributes to its mood-lifting effects. (2) Though similar to caffeine, with similar benefits to mood, motor function, and cognition – Theobromine does not overly stimulate the body’s central nervous system.  So, while caffeine might possibly harm your game by increasing levels of stress placed on the body (“the jitters”), theobromine will not…It’s also longer-lasting.

L-Theanine

L-Theanine is one of the main active ingredients found in caffeine and has the ability to reduce anxiety and promote calm without sedation.(3) While this alone is beneficial for a player’s round performance, there is some evidence that suggests L-Theanine promotes better “executive function.”  For golf as a sport, L-Theanine is a star.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid the body uses to produce noradrenaline and dopamine (both neurotransmitters), and evidence suggests that it reduces stress during moments of acute stress. (4) In other words, supplementing with L-Tyrosine helps your brain cope with stressful situations.

Agmatine Sulphate

Agmatine Sulphate, a metabolite of L-Arginine, is linked to many positive effects, but to support the player’s composure it promotes beta-endorphin production, which helps to regulate behavior in response to pain, stress, or fear. (6)(7)(8)

Magnesium Glycinate

Magnesium is an essential mineral/electrolyte and is a co-factor in over 300 enzyme systems in the human body, including blood pressure regulation, energy creation, and proper nerve function; and deficiencies have been linked to everything from ADHD and Depression. (9)(10)(11) We used Magnesium Glycinate specifically for the additional calming effects Glycine has on the brain. (12)

Calcium Beta-Hydroxybutyrate

Exogenous ketone bodies are alternative energy to blood sugar and are so small that they easily cross the blood-brain barrier.  As a result, ketone bodies can improve cognition by providing the brain with an additional source of energy.(13)
