Zeal for Life:
Feeling the Zeal difference means different things to different people.
But now a clinical study backs up that there definitely is a Zeal for Life difference. Recent clinical trial results from independent third-party research firm KGK Synergize* confirm that the positive benefits of drinking Zeal include improved mood, stronger vigor and vitality, and less anxiety and fatigue. Under the highest scientific standards, the study was conducted on healthy and active people not trying to improve mood or enhance their current health. Yet, after just 28 days of drinking Zeal twice a day, 85% felt better. The difference was significant.
OVERALL CONCLUSIONS OF THE STUDY:
Zeal at a dose of 28 grams per day, consumed as two doses of 14 grams, one in the morning and one mid-afternoon, signficantly improved mood states and reduced stress levels within 29 days in moderately stressed but otherwise healthy individuals. This “Gold Standard” randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study scientifically validated Zeal in a healthy population by testing the efficacy of the product using proven research tools that test mood states.
Though this study had a 16% placebo effect, statistically significant improvements in Profile of Mood State-Total Mood Disturbance were achieved compared to a combined Placebo group. Participants reported a significant decrease of approximately 7% in the POMS-TMD and its subdomain, Anger and Hostility compared to the combined Placebo
when they consumed 28 g of Zeal daily in two separate doses, one in the morning and one mid-afternoon.
2-dose Zeal improved the POMS Iceberg profile with a significant within group increase in Vigor and Activity. This improvement was associated with a significant within group decrease in the POMS subdomains of Tension and Anxiety, Despondency and Dejection, Anger
and Hostility, Fatigue and Inertia, Confusion and Bewilderment.
Rejuvenation of mood states, particularly reductions in anxiety and despondency in this study corroborates earlier investigations into the anxiolytic and mood supporting properties of multiple food derived ingredients in the Zeal formulation, including Maca (Lepidium meyenii) (Stojanovska L et al., 2015) and grape seed extract (Terauchi M et al., 2014).
Importantly, the safety and efficacy profile of Zeal in this study strengthens evidence for its use in a healthy population to address moderate stress.
