The Benefit – Reduces overstimulation – the jitters – to enhance your mental clarity.
The Benefit – Enhances and extends the stimulating properties of coffee to fight off the afternoon crash.
The Science – Theacrine shares similarities with caffeine and is thought to be synthesized in plants from caffeine itself. The difference in structure means that it is dealt with differently by the body, resulting in stimulation that lasts longer. (8)(9)
The Benefits – Slows the breakdown of caffeine’s stimulant release to give you sustained mental energy throughout the day.
The Science – Hordenine interacts with Monoamine Oxidase, one of the mechanisms the body uses to break down neurotransmitters. While it is busy dealing with Hordenine these chemicals can stay active for longer. (5)
The Benefit – Increases the feel-good chemicals in the brain to boost your mood.
The Science – Curcumin raises levels of dopamine and serotonin, key neurotransmitters that control mood and motivation. An additional increase in BDNF boosts neurogenesis driving the formation of new pathways in the brain. (10) (11)
The Benefit – Provides necessary brain fuel to support the brains memory and recall systems.
The Science – CDP-Choline occurs naturally in the body and breaks down into Uridine and Choline. The process supplies the brain with much-needed acetylcholine, traditionally considered to underpin our complex intelligent thought processes. (3)(4)
The Benefit – A critical vitamin for many aspects of healthy brain function.
The Science – Vitamin B6 is an important cofactor, this means that many processes in the body are dependent on it to function properly. This includes five important neurotransmitters, including dopamine, serotonin, and acetylcholine. (6)(7)
