AlphaSize® Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline
AlphaSize® Alpha-GPC (Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline) is a branded ingredient that has been shown to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain. AlphaSize® A-GPC is used widely in clinical settings around the world involving memory (AlphaSize® from Chemi Nutra).
Citicoline is nature’s way of helping to keep the brain’s energy-producing centers firing. Clinically tested for efficacy, Cognizin® delivers a patented form of citicoline that supplies your brain with the energy it needs to stay sharp. Cognizin is also pure, vegetarian and allergen-free. Cognizin® is a registered trademark of KYOWA HAKKO BIO CO., LTD.
Vinpocetine may help improve cerebral metabolism and blood flow in the brain. It works by causing mild dilation of blood vessels, thereby allowing for increased cerebral blood flow, which results in increased oxygenation and glucose utilization. In addition to helping support more efficient brain circulation, vinpocetine has been found to potentially help increase brain-cell energy through its effect on the production of ATP (the cellular energy molecule).
Eleuthero Root Extract Powder
Eleuthero Root helps give your body a much needed boost in energy, improved concentration, and increased immune system function. There have been studies showing eleuthero root may also be helpful in fighting stress, boosting energy levels and helping to relieve chronic fatigue symptoms.
Bacopa Monnieri Leaf Extract Powder
Recent studies indicate that Bacosides, B. Monniera’s primary components, may enhance nerve impulse transmission, possibly helping to improve concentration, learning, memory, and attention span as well as other higher order cognitive functions. Study results have also suggested it influences the production and availability of Serotonin.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Powder
Ginkgo has been reported to potentially improve short- and long-term memory, increase mental clarity and focus and to help fight the gradual loss of energy brought on by aging. Ginkgo has potential antioxidant properties reducing oxidative cell damage and naturally slowing the aging effects.
DMAE (as Deanol L-Bitartrate)
Because of more readily moving through the brain-blood barrier before conversion into choline, DMAE is believed to support brain function, such as the production of neurotransmitters. As an antioxidant, DMAE potentially helps deactivate free-radicals (oxidative stress), thus supporting the immune system.
Guarana Seed Extract Powder
Rich in Caffeine, guarana is of interest for its potential effects on cognition. A 2007 human pilot study assessed acute behavioral effects to four doses (37.5 mg, 75 mg, 150 mg and 300 mg) of guarana extract. Memory, alertness and mood were increased by the two lower doses, supporting previous results of cognitive improvement following 75 mg guarana.
Stress hormones, known as glucocorticoids, can potentially cause imbalances in brain chemistry that interfere with mood and memory. The effect is biochemical. Counteracting glucocorticoids is extremely important and L-Theanine is one of the few dietary supplemental ingredients that help to suppress glucocorticoids.
Glycine is potentially a contributor in improving symptoms of memory loss, jet lag and fatigue. In addition to its major beneficial functions, it also helps to supply the body with glucose needed for energy.
Optiberry® is a standardized blend of berry powders and extracts rich in biologically active anthocyanins that helps supply whole body antioxidant benefits, including healthy brain function and mental clarity. A unique proprietary blend of; Wild Blueberry Vaccinium angustifolium (fruit) Extract, Strawberry Fragaria chiloensis (fruit) Powder, Cranberry Vaccinium macrocarpon (fruit) Powder, Wild Bilberry Vaccinium myrtillus (fruit) Extract, Elderberry Sambucus nigra (fruit) Extract and Raspberry Rubus idaeus (seed) Powder providing the anthocyanins malvidin, cyanidin, delphinidin and petunidin in biologically active ratios. Optiberry® is a trademark of Lonza. Optiberry® brand anthocyanin extract (patent pending).
AllQ® CoEnzyme Q10 (as Coenzyme Q10 CWS)
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant that is made in the human body. CoQ10 is needed for basic cell function. CoQ10 levels decrease with age and may be low in people with certain disorders. (AllQ® is a DSM ingredient)
Niacin (as Niacinamide)
Niacinamide does not cause flushing at any dose. It is readily converted to an enzyme called NADH that is needed for metabolism and energy production.
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL)
Vitamin B6 is involved in the process of making serotonin and norepinephrine, which are chemicals that transmit signals in the brain. Vitamin B6 is also involved in the formation of myelin, a protein layer that forms around nerve cells.
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin)
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body's nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.
Vitamin E (as d-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate)
Vitamin E is necessary for structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. It also assists in the formation of red blood cells and helps to maintain stores of vitamins A and K, iron, and selenium. It may have a positive effect on immune health as well.
