In order to respond to crisis situations, police officers, firefighters, EMS, military, physicians, surgeons and nurses require focus, quick decision-making abilities, quick reactions, mental sharpness (even with lack of sleep), speed, stamina, and power output. All of this while working shift work. Nutrition has been scientifically proven to have an impact on all these crucial traits. Natasha can help first responders achieve peak performance as lives depend on the ability of first responders to perform to their full potential.
