Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do you pronounce Xigo?
A: Xigo is pronounced “chee-go.”
Q: What is the stimulant/sedative cycle and how can I break it?
A: Many energy products pump up the body with high doses of caffeine and artificial stimulants. This artifically induced stimulation can leave you feeling jittery, unable to calm down and relax. To induce sleep after taking such a strong stimulant, many users resort to taking an equally strong sleep aid. For parents who need to be able to respond to middle-of-the-night emergencies, a drug-induced sleep is not an option. All-natural XIGO Daytime Restore and Nighttime Repose work in concert to maintain an alert responsiveness during the day and a calming, tranquil rest in the evening. This natural, gentle approach allows users to break the stimulant/sedative cycle.
Q: What role does inflammation play in managing stress?
Inflammation is the body’s way to bring blood, enzymes and other resources to a particular area in response to a need. Some inflammation is normal. However, when inflammation exceeds normal ranges, it can contribute to a number of physiological concerns. To help maintain a healthy inflammation response, XIGO's Daytime Restore contains curcumin. Curcumin is a compound that has been shown to support a healthy inflammation response, promote healthy cell development, and inhibit excessive inflammation.
Q. What are adaptogens and why are they important?
When the body encounters a stressor, cortisol levels rise and the body goes on high alert, ready to respond. After the stress response, the body needs to calm back down. Adaptogens help the body regain equilibrium so that it doesn't remain in a stressed state for longer than necessary. XIGO’s Nighttime Repose contains an adaptogen called ashwaganda. Ashwaganda has a calming, tranquil adaptogenic action that helps relieve anxiety and keep the body's inflammation levels within the normal range.
Q. How can I become more resilient over time?
A. Boosting energy levels is easy. Boosting energy levels in a lasting, healthy way is quite a bit harder. In the world of fast fixes, remedies often focus on pumping up energy levels with caffeine, stimulating the nor-adrenergic system, and doing little to calm the body. Such stimulation stresses the body over time. When the body is stressed, it takes even more energy to return to homeostasis, draining reserves even more. XIGO Daytime Restore takes a different approach. Daytime Restore avoids instant energy fixes that lead to higher levels of stress, less stability and, therefore, less usable energy over time. Instead the formulation prioritizes long-term health and contains ingredients that not only support immediate nutritional needs, but also help develop cumulative resilience.
Q. How does Daytime Restore help me long-term?
A.The human body forms a complex and adaptive system. Some forms of energy increase the body's resilience in that they provide nutrients that can help prevent future energy expenditures. For example, antioxidants stop free radicals from continuing to oxidize cells, which helps stem the destruction free radicals can cause. The faster free radical damage is stopped, the less energy is required for repairing the damage. The Daytime Restore approach recognizes that energy conserved in one arena is energy gained in another. In response, Daytime Restore contains a synergistic blend of nutrients that help to prevent future problems.
Immune Defense FAQs
Q: Why does my immune system need extra nutritional support?
A: The body’s natural defenses are compromised in times of stress.
Q: What is an innate immune defense?
A: The innate immune functions have the job of identifying and destroying invaders. This part of the immune system detects when there is a challenge and activates different types of immune cells to eliminate the problem.
Q: What is an adaptive immune defense?
A: The adaptive immune functions help the immune system remember and recall immune challenges it has previously encountered and respond more quickly to repeat attacks.
Q: Why are Xigo immune products in the form of chewable tablets?
A: Chewable tablets dissolve in the mouth, directing nutrients directly to the tissues lining the throat and mouth. This is the body’s first line of defense. From there, immune cells disperse Xigo’s nutritional support throughout the entire body for a complete immune response.
Q: How is Xigo Maximum Immune Defense different from the Daily Immune Defense?
A: Most people don’t think about their immune system until they feel run down. Xigo Maximum Immune Defense was designed as an extra-strength formula for a quick immune response and can be used by adults or children.
Q: When and how often should you use Xigo Maximum Immune Defense?
A: Take two chewable tablets as soon as you feel the need for extra immune support, then repeat three or four times a day until the eight, single-dose packets in the box are gone.
Q: How is the Xigo Daily Immune Defense different from the Maximum Immune Defense?
A: The Daily Immune Defense provides ongoing immune support and includes zinc for oxidative stress support and beta-carotene for improved absorption of important vitamins.
Q: Is there any research behind the Xigo Immune Defense products?
A: There are multiple studies on the individual ingredients used in the product (beta-glucans, L-glutamine and lactoferrin). The formula used in Xigo has been positively reviewed by a top immunologist from the University of Texas and the Maximum Immune Defense formula is currently undergoing a 140-person, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in Boston to establish the product’s effectiveness in the relief of symptoms from the common cold. Xigo is a company that is committed to the investment in ongoing research of ingredients used in its formulas.
