  • Dopamine Optimizer™

    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", Parkinson's disease and accelerated brain aging.6

    • elevated brain dopamine levels
    • 74% improvement in mental acuity.6
    • 57% improvement in mental processing time and speed24
    • increase alpha-brain waves and electrical brain activity 30
    • improved mood and better relaxation.30

    Overview of Ingredients

    Neuravena® Wild Green Oat extract inhibits the monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) enzyme. This is important, because age-related decline in dopamine is largely caused by rising levels of MAO-B. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial utilizing this same ingredient in Body⇌Brain Energy™, there was a 74% improvement on a standard test of mental acuity 6 and 57% improvement in mental processing time and speed 24.

    NOTE: Neuravena is the only clinically proven form of wild green oat extract shown to acutely improve attention and concentration as well as the ability to maintain task focus in older adults.34 It's also been proven to enhance cerebral vasodilation, which can help improve cognition and reduce the formation of plaque in the brain.34

    Velvet Bean extract is guaranteed to provide 20% catecholamines, including L-DOPA, a precursor to the catecholamine neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. While L-DOPA can cross the blood-brain barrier, dopamine cannot, making L-DOPA the preferred compound to elevate brain dopamine levels.

    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!

  • Stress-Adrenal-Cortisol Optimizer™

    Pre Summary

    Stress disrupts multiple biochemical pathways, including cortisol production (a primary stress hormone), adrenal production (a primary cause of fatigue), pro-inflammatory enzyme production (a primary cause of disease) and neurotransmitter production (a primary cause of brain aging).7,14,15 Sadly, an estimated 75%–90% of visits to primary care physicians are now related to the effects of stress.35

    You may not be able to stop stress, but for longevity and health reasons, you need to give your body specific nutrients to help manage and reduce "stress side-effects".

    • enhances energy metabolism in cells, memory, concentration, learning and word choice 39,40
    • reducing fatigue, stress hormones and tension by 26% 38
    • improvement in energy, sleep, relaxation healthy outlook and well-being 41

    Overview of Ingredients

    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

    Sensoril® Ashwagandha extract counters some of the oxidative damage generated by nervous tension and stress.36 Clinical trials have shown reduced levels of the hormone cortisol by up to 26% while maintaining normal blood sugar levels and lipid profiles.38 Studies have shown an improvement in energy, sleep, healthy outlook and well-being, as well as diminished fatigue.37

    NOTE: Sensoril® is produced with specially cultivated Ashwagandha that's purified through a patented process, concentrating the active constituents to levels never before achieved (32% oligosaccharides, 10% withanolide glycoside conjugates). Thus, every single capsule delivers the same stress-fighting support. Plus, Sensoril® features not just the maximum amount of active agents, it features them in the proper ratio for optimum results. No other Ashwagandha supplement compares!

    Sharp-PS® Green Phosphatidylserine (Soy Free) is required for normal cellular structure and function. Brain tissues are especially rich in phosphatidylserine (PS), but aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body. Research has shown that in addition to improving neural function, PS enhances energy metabolism in all cells, memory, concentration, learning and word choice.39,40 Another major benefit to using PS is that it significantly modulates cortisol levels, resulting in a more relaxed state.41

    NOTE: We utilize the clinically researched Sharp-PS® Green form of Phosphatidylserine because it comes from a vegetarian source which is free from soy allergens, and is non GMO and eco-friendly.

    N-Acetyl 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. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels may be improved. The N-Acetyl version of Tyrosine is more stable and soluble, thus resulting in greater bioavailability.

  • Nootropic Optimizer™

    Pre Summary

    Nootropics, a Greek word meaning 'Towards the Mind', are compounds that are both (1) neurologically active and (2) directly or indirectly enhances 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".

    • boosts both mental and physical energy
    • enhances memory and recall10
    • increases mental speed, concentration and focus13
    • anti-aging benefits12
    • promote higher IQ/intelligence 11,13

    Overview of Ingredients

    Adrafinil (originally discovered in the 1970's) is a Nootropic compound, considered to be an "eugeroic" -- which helps promote wakefulness and mental alertness, as well as positively affecting mood, energy levels, motivation and reaction time.29-31

    Noopept has a similar effect to Piracetam, one of the oldest and most researched Nootropics with over 40+ years of data.33 The primary difference been that a much lower dosage is required to see and feel the positive effects. Noopept is one of the most effective and strongest of all the Nootropic supplements on the market today. It has been found improve memory, learning capacity, focus, and concentration.32 It also promotes significant neuro/brain protective effects.

  • Acetylecholine Optimizer™

    Pre Summary

    A decline in acetylcholine levels coincides with advancing age and is a hallmark of neurodegeneration, which can lead to dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Proper acetylcholine function is essential to muscle control, sleep, and cognition.51

    • cognitive-enhancing properties
    • enhance growth hormone production52
    • optimizes cerebral (brain) energy metabolism

    Overview of Ingredients

    Alpha-GPC is a crucial building block for the production of acetylcholine in the brain. It has cognitive-enhancing properties and reduces the rate of cognitive decline in the elderly (especially for Alzheimer's disease).51 It also has the ability to enhance growth hormone production and power output, which helps benefit athletes and those over the age of 40.52

    CDP-Choline stands for cytidine-5’-diphosphate choline. This unique form of choline readily passes through the blood-brain barrier (BBB) directly into the brain tissue. Once past the blood-brain barrier, CDP-choline activates the synthesis of critical components in cell membranes, enhances cerebral energy metabolism and increases levels of various neurotransmitters

    Huperzine A - is a standardized extract from the Chinese club moss is an all-natural herbal supplement that has been shown to maintain healthy levels of acetylcholine.53 It is known as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, which means that it stops an enzyme from breaking down acetylcholine which results in increases in acetylcholine. Huperzine-A is in preliminary trials for usage in fighting Alzheimer's Disease as well.54

  • Cerebral Circulation & Oxygen Optimizer™

    Pre Summary

    Most people don't know that the brain requires a great deal of oxygen and circulation. In fact, cerebral blood flow is about 15% of cardiac output... Which is where all of your "blood" pumping is done. Proper brain health, diseases prevention and anti-aging benefits, requires optimal cerebral circulation and oxygen utilization.

    • Improves blood supply and healthy circulation to the brain58
    • Increases oxygen and glucose use by the brain59
    • Maintains optimal energy of healthy brains60
    • Maintains normal coagulation of blood61
    • Maintains healthy levels of some neurotransmitters62
    • Promotes healthy attention, memory and concentration63

    Overview of Ingredients

    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. Ginkgo extract has also been shown to reduce age-related decline in mitochondrial structure and function by protecting mitochondria from oxidative damage.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 improves cerebral metabolism by helping to maintain healthy blood flow and oxygen utilization.55-57

  • ATP Optimizer™

    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 problems. Having higher levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) provides more of the energy molecules need to perform many daily activities.71

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

    Overview of Ingredients

    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.

  • Mitochondria Optimizer™

    Pre Summary

    Known as "cellular dynamos," healthy mitochondria produce the energy that powers all your cells. As people age, however, mitochondria both lose function and decrease in number. Our unique Mitochondrial Optimizer™ blend was formulated to enhance mitochondrial function, protect delicate cellular structures, power-charge metabolic processes, and aid in the creation of new mitochondria.

    • Supports healthy mitochondrial function and cellular energy output
    • Helps generate new mitochondria
    • Protects cellular structures and acts as a potent antioxidant
    • Inhibits inflammatory factors
    • Aids in cellular metabolism of glucose and fat for energy

    Overview of Ingredients

    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

    Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) helps support youthful memory function, improve mitochondrial structure and function, inhibit age-related oxidative damage, and restore the activity of key enzymes due to aging and stress.47-50
