WHY VOKE WORKS

Flat Afternoons, Body Cycles and the Brain

Tired of Feeling Tired?

Our bodies have up-and-down daily cycles called diurnal body timing patterns. Recent research reveals that these body timing patterns play a bigger role than ever assumed in how we think and feel throughout the day (1).

Voke uses superfoods that smooth out this natural cycle so we can stay mentally vigilant, focused and emotionally upbeat throughout the day.

DAILY BODY CYCLES

It's more than lifestyle that has us slowing down.

Everyday our bodies go through a timing-cycle where we move from feel-good highs to mentally-fuzzy lows. Researchers call these highs and lows our Twin Peaks of Mood. After the early morning peak, we drift down to a low mental valley. By mid-afternoon we bottom out, and will struggle with decision making, clear thinking and having a positive attitude towards others(2).

Mental performance, mood and decision making are linked to natural, chemically driven daily body cycles. Ingredients in Voke affect chemistry in your brain, improving performance throughout this cycle.

MENTALLY DRUNK

Your brain is working more poorly than it may seem.

Studies looking at mental performance during cycle low-points show that our mental and emotional abilities are far more impaired than ever assumed.

Research, conducted at the University of Oxford, shows that our performance change from peaks to valley points can be equivalent to drinking the legal limit of alcohol(5).  
  

CRITICAL THINKING SET BACK

Research from Harvard showed academic performance dropped by the equivalent of missing two weeks of school a year when testing in the Valley(4).

MISTAKES 4X MORE LIKELY

Findings from Duke show that hospital workers are 4x more likely to make a mistake during the afternoon trough(5).

WORLD WIDE NEGATIVE FEELINGS

Research from Cornell looking at half a billion tweets shows that people worldwide are more pessimistic and cynical during the low mental valley(6).

ZAGGED MOOD

In “The Valley”, we may not be very nice.

If you have ever noticed being more sharp, and not as friendly to others in the late afternoon, you are not alone. Research done on working professionals in over 2,100 companies showed that we are more negative, irritable and combative during this time. (7)

If we don’t do anything about it, we will perform worse at work, make worse decisions and be less warm towards others during our daily mental valley. Superfood Tabs help us overcome this unproductive down cycle, nourishing our bodies and avoiding unwanted side-effects.
