In today's ultra competitive society, nootropics are becoming ever more popular as a way to boost memory, creativity, intelligence, and motivation.
You are probably most acquainted with caffeine as a nootropic. Caffeine works by blocking adenosine receptors in your brain, making you feel less tired and increasing your alertness. This can help you to pay attention more. That's the most basic way to understand the effects of nootropics.
The main ingredient in Brain+, our nootropic, is Cognizin Citicoline. Take a look at the graphic below to get a crash course in what this clinically proven brain booster can do for you.
Another ingredient we include in our Brain+ nootropic supplement is phosphatidylerine (soy lecithin).
One of lecithin’s most effective brain-protecting extracts is phosphatidylserine. This is a naturally occurring compound found in every cell membrane in the body. Phosphatidylserine supports healthy levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, facilitates brain cell energy metabolism, and provides structural support for brain cell membranes. Several studies confirm the benefits of phosphatidylserine as a key component in fostering healthy brain function. Additional studies suggest that phosphatidylserine is helpful not only in treating cognitive decline, but also in avoiding its onset. In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study, Alzheimer’s patients taking 300 mg of phosphatidylserine daily performed significantly better on standardized memory tests at the end of the 12-week trial period than did the study participants who received placebo. Importantly, those patients who were the least affected by dementia demonstrated the greatest benefit from phosphatidylserine therapy. These results suggest that beginning supplementation very early on can help prevent age-related loss of memory and other cognitive-related impairments.
As a company, we value the fusion of ancient Eastern medicine with Western technology to make it the most effective it has ever been.
We've also included several herbs to this supplement to make it even more potent and effective.
A dietary supplement derived from the Chinese club moss Huperzia serrata, Huperzine is being looked into as a potential treatment for Alzheimer's disease. Huperzine acts as a cholinesterase inhibitor, which is a type of medication that works by improving the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. Small studies suggest that huperzine may improve memory and protect nerve cells. This could slow down the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's. Huperzine can be great for dealing with memory, loss of mental abilities (such a s dementia), and even muscular disorder myasthenia gravis. This is because it causes an increase in the levels of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the chemicals that our nerves use to communicate in the brain, muscles, and other areas.
Ginkgo biloba is one of the most popular, best-selling herbal supplements. It's extract is collected from the dried green leaves of the plant and is available in many forms such as liquid extracts, capsules, and tablets. People use it for a variety of reasons because the therapeutic properties of the ginkgo plant are said to include treatment for blood disorders and memory problems, enhancement of cardiovascular function, and to improve eye health. Gingko contains high levels of flavonoids and terpenoids which are antioxidants that provide protection against oxidative cell damage from harmful free radicals. The Gingko tree is considered to be a "living fossil", meaning that it has continued to survive even after major extinction events. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMM), "Gingko is widely used in Europe for treating dementia." Doctors started to use it because they thought it would improve blood flow to the brain, but recent studies show that it can actually protect nerve cells from damage in Alzheimer's. There is also some evidence indicating that ginkgo may even help people with dementia.
The benefits may include improved thinking, improved memory, improved social behavior, and improved performance of everyday tasks.
Schisandra comes from a vine native to China. Its berry is used in traditional Chinese medicine. It can also protect the brain from memory impairment. Finally, Siberian Rhodiola is most commonly used for increasing energy, endurance, strength, and mental capacity. It is also used as an adaptogen to help the body adapt to and resist physical, chemical, and environmental stress. Rhodiola may help to increase the sensitivity of your neurons, including the two neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.
