In this new series, we’re breaking down exactly how our products work, so you can wow your friends with a little plant science. Next up: Focus Mab Sticks.

What it does:

  1. Increases mental energy
  2. Banishes brain fog to improve attention
  3. Enhances precision
  4. Tastes great with a tangy blood orange flavor

Key ingredients: 

  • Astragalus
  • Centella Asiatica
  • Ginger
  • Lion’s Mane
  • Rhodiola 

How it works:

Focus Mab Sticks rely on a combination of synergistic ingredients to help you feel sharp and attentive:

If there are two heroes in this product, they’re centella asiatica – otherwise known as brahmi – and Lion’s Mane, a mushroom with compounds called diterpenes. It is believed that both ingredients can improve cognitive function. In fact, it’s said that yogis once used centella asiatica to improve their focus during meditation.

Then there’s the triple threat, rhodiola. Not only is this herb thought to be stimulating (it’s traditionally been used to combat fatigue in Siberia and northern parts of China), but clinical studies also suggest that it improves cognition and attention

Meanwhile, ginger is thought to promote blood flow, which helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the brain so you can perform at your best. Ginger also may allow the other ingredients to be absorbed better by the body.

Pro Tip: Use one of your regular breaks from work to take your Focus Mab Stick.
Pro Tip: Once you’ve enjoyed your Focus Mab Stick, try the Box Breathing technique to keep amping up your concentration.
Pro Tip: If you’re ready to hit happy hour, try mixing a Focus Mab Stick into a margarita.

Fun fact: Focus Mab Sticks also contain astragalus sourced from a family business that’s been operating for over 40 years in China and San Francisco. It is believed that astragalus supports the immune system, and in traditional Chinese medicine, the herb is thought to protect the heart. 

Focus Mab Sticks in the wild:

“This has helped me stop my afternoon slump. I typically reach for something sweet around 3pm and I have started to replace it with a focus stick. Not only does it help curb the craving, but it helps me get back on track!” – Coco

“Love my focus mab sticks! Definitely help me get through my 10 hour workdays. I like to add them to my early afternoon green tea. Delish!” – Lily

The Stick Advantage: 

Since our sticks include a powdered herb formula, the results “hit” faster (typically within 20 to 40 minutes) than they would in a chewable or tablet form since your body doesn’t have to break it down. 

A Note on Sustainability:  

All botanical ingredients in Mab Sticks are sustainably sourced, cultivated and harvested. We use organic ingredients wherever possible and wild crafted or ecologically cultivated ingredients depending on what part of the world a particular plant is grown in. Each plant extract  is independently tested for pesticides and other toxic contaminants. We are committed to rigorous testing at each stage of manufacturing to ensure that every Mab Stick is safe for you and the planet.
