Pre Summary

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and cognition. Unfortunately, dopamine levels decline as we age resulting in decreased mental performance, depression, "drive", poor mental health and brain aging.6*

Reported health benefits include:

  • healthy brain dopamine levels*
  • 74% improvement in mental acuity.6*
  • 57% improvement in mental processing time + speed24*
  • increased alpha-brain waves & electrical brain activity 30*
  • positive mood support & better relaxation.30*

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that can be converted in the brain and in the adrenal glands to dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (adrenaline) hormones that are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. 24

Suntheanine® L-Theanine is the predominant amino acid of tea that produces calming effects in the brain by increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine, and blocking the binding of L-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors.25-31* The calming, mood-enhancing effect is achieved by helping to increase alpha-brain waves, electrical brain activity commonly present when you are very relaxed, literally putting you in a better mood.30*

NOTE: The L-theanine used in this product is Suntheanine®, the only pure form of L-theanine protected by 40 U.S. and international patents and scientifically proven in clinical studies to be safe and effective!

Dicaffeine Malate + Citrate is a slow release form of caffeine, that is NOT associated with jitters, anxiousness, rapid heartbeat or a "crash". We've added a very small amount, only 10 mg per 1 pill ( cup of coffee has 150-200 mg of caffeine), for a slight boost in dopamine synthesis.

Pre Summary

Nootropics, a Greek word meaning 'Towards the Mind', are compounds that are both (1) neurologically active and (2) directly or indirectly enhance cognitive potential via increased capabilities (ie: reflexes), state of well being and learning potential.*

They are known as cognitive enhancers, which are dietary supplements that help optimize brain functions and improve brain health. Their mode of action is similar to "smart drugs"*.

Reported health benefits include:

  • boosts both mental & physical energy*
  • supports enhanced memory & recall10*
  • promotes mental speed, concentration & focus13*
  • anti-aging health benefits12*
  • promote higher IQ/intelligence 11,13*

Bacopa extract (50% bacopa glycosides) is traditionally used to help support memory and concentration, while easing stress and tension.* It is thought to help nourish neurons while restoring depleted synaptic activity and is one of Ayurveda's most revered herbs for brain health.*

DMAE supports your body's production of the neurotransmitter involved in better memory and learning. It also helps maintain youthful brain function and supports free radical scavenging activity.*

Huperzine A is a clinically studied standardized extract from the Chinese club moss, providing a powerful and promising neuroprotectant that promotes brain health, memory and cognition.53,54*

Pre Summary

A decline in acetylcholine levels coincides with advancing age and is a hallmark of neurodegeneration, which can lead to poor brain health and again. Proper acetylcholine function is essential to muscle control, sleep, and cognition.51

Reported health benefits include:

  • healthy cognitive-enhancing properties
  • enhanced growth hormone production52
  • healthy cerebral (brain) energy metabolism

Alpha-GPC is extremely well absorbed and crosses the blood brain barrier. In the brain, alpha GPC supports youthful brain function and learning processes by directly increasing the synthesis and secretion of acetylcholine. It has cognitive-enhancing properties and reduces the rate of cognitive decline in the elderly (poor memory, slower learning, etc).51

Citicoline (CDP-Choline) is a unique form of choline that readily passes through the blood-brain barrier directly into the brain tissue. It encourages the synthesis of acetylcholine and supports healthy cognition, attention, memory function and increases levels of various youthful neurotransmitters.

Pre Summary

Most people don't know that the brain requires a great deal of oxygen and circulation. In fact, cerebral (brain) blood flow is about 15% of cardiac/heart output... Which is where all of your "blood" pumping is done.

Proper brain health, illness reduction and anti-aging benefits, require optimal cerebral circulation and oxygen utilization.

Reported health benefits include:

  • Improved blood supply & healthy circulation to the brain. 58*
  • Increased oxygen & glucose use by the brain. 59*
  • Maintain optimal energy of healthy brains. 60*
  • Maintain normal coagulation of blood. 61*
  • Encourage healthy levels of neurotransmitters. 62*
  • Promotes healthy attention, memory & concentration. 63*

Ginkgo biloba (24% extract) is both neuro (brain) and cardio (heart) protective. Ginkgo extract contains flavonoids that are known to strengthen capillaries, promote healthy blood flow to the brain, and help maintain cognitive health64-68 It helps enhance oxygen utilization and cellular respiration.69 This means more oxygen and nutrients to your brain.70

NOTE: We are utilizing the most potent form of Ginkgo with the highest extract: 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides, 6% total terpene lactones, <1ppm ginkgolic acid.

Vinpocetine enhances cerebral blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing blood viscosity. It also helps promote cerebral metabolism by helping to maintain healthy blood flow and oxygen utilization.55-57

Pre Summary

A common complaint among older adults is loss of physical and mental energy. As people age, their cells’ ability to produce energy is diminished.

Many scientists believe that cellular energy deficit is a critical factor in the onset of many health problems. Having higher levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) provides more of the energy molecules needed to perform many daily activities.71

Reported health benefits include:

  • Increases cellular energy by promoting higher levels of ATP
  • Shown to aid exercise endurance after a single dose72
  • Significantly improves physical & cognitive function73
  • Helps alleviate both physical & mental fatigue

Rhodiola extract (3% rosavins, NLT 1% salidrosides) is remarkable in its ability to support cellular energy metabolism by promoting higher levels of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and CP (creatine phosphate) in the mitochondria. In human clinical trials, rhodiola aided exercise endurance after just a single dose72 and increased several measures of mental performance, including associative thinking, short-term memory, concentration, calculation and speed of audio/visual perception. Statistically significant improvements were reported after just two weeks of supplementation.73

NOTE: Unlike some other rhodiola supplements, w only use the authentic Rhodiola rosea species, and is standardized to contain 3% rosavins and not less than 1% salidrosides — matching the concentrations used in clinical trials. This means more cellular energy for your body!

NADH is a natural coenzyme derived from vitamin B3 (niacin), which is essential for basic metabolism, respiration, the breakdown of sugars and fats, and the production of ATP, the primary energy molecule in our cells. NADH supplies ATP energy to the brain, nerves, muscles, heart and all other organs.

Pre Summary

Known as "cellular dynamos," healthy mitochondria produce the energy that powers all your cells. Unfortunately, as we age, mitochondria lose function and decrease in number.

Reported health benefits include:

  • Supports healthy mitochondrial function * cellular energy output*
  • Helps generate new mitochondria*
  • Protects cellular structures & acts as a potent antioxidant*
  • Support healthy inflammatory response*
  • Aids in cellular metabolism of glucose & fat for energy*

CoQ10 (Kaneka QH Ubiquinol®) is an essential nutrient your body requires for healthy mitochondrial function, a process that produces body energy at the cellular level, from fats and sugars.42 CoQ10 also has powerful antioxidant properties, protecting important proteins43 and mitochondrial DNA44 from oxidative damage.

NOTE: The traditional form of CoQ10, ubiquinone, is difficult for the body to absorb. But another form, ubiquinol, has been shown to absorb up to 8 times greater than ubiquinone, especially if you're over the age of 40. Kaneka QH Ubiquinol® is the only bio-identical CoQ10 available.

PQQ can activate genes that promote the formation of brand new mitochondria for more youthful cellular energy production.45 PQQ works with CoQ10 as a potent antioxidant and supports the defense of mitochondrial DNA "death".46
