This formula contains cognitive and brain supportive nutrients including glycerophosphocholine (GPC), acetyl L-carnitine, phosphatidylserine (PS), inositol, and Ginkgo biloba extract. Each of these nutrients has been extensively researched in relation to their roles in brain health and function.
health and cognitive function. Your brain is made up of an estimated 100 billion cells called neurons, with trillions of
connections—called synapses—between these cells. As we age, the structure and function of these neurons may
naturally become compromised, which can aect memory, learning, concentration and the ability to focus. Factors
such as stress, suboptimal blood sugar regulation, excessive alcohol consumption, and certain nutrient deficiencies
can aect brain cells and cognitive ability.
Acetyl L-Carnitine: a form of the amino acid derivative L-carnitine, which plays an important role in the transport of
fatty acids into neuronal mitochondria. Mitochondria are the “power plants” of most cells—the actual site of cellular
energy generation. The brain uses as much as 25% of the entire body’s energy supply, so supporting mitochondrial
energy production is crucial for memory, sharp thinking and overall cognition.
Phosphatidylserine (PS): a vital component of all cell membranes, the protective layer that surrounds cells, including
neurons. PS helps support overall brain wellness and helps maintain healthy levels of cortisol, a hormone released in
response to stress. Chronic stress may be a factor in declining memory and cognition, so it’s important to support the
body and brain during times of stress.
Glycerophosphocholine (GPC): a naturally occurring compound in all cells and also in breastmilk. GPC is a supportive
nutrient for the brain and a building block for phospholipids, the main structural components of cell membranes—similar to the load-bearing walls of a house. Adequate availability of GPC and synthesis of brain phospholipids may help support healthy memory. (A baby’s growing brain and its constant assimilation of information and
sensory input explains why GPC is a critical component in breastmilk.)
Citicoline: a substance found in every cell of the body and vital to brain health. It supplies precursors for the synthesis
of phospholipids, major constituents of brain tissue. Upon digestion, citicoline is broken down into two compounds:
1. Choline, which crosses the blood-brain barrier and may be used for the production of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter crucial for memory processing and learning) or the formation of phosphatidylcholine, a structural component of brain cells
2. Cytidine, which boosts the synthesis of cytidine triphosphate, a cofactor for the production of phosphatidylcholine
Ginkgo biloba: an herbal extract used in Chinese medicine for over 5000 years. Ginkgo provides critical antioxidant
protection and enhances “brain microcirculation,” which is the flow of blood through the body’s smallest vessels.
Ginkgo may help to support healthy mood and mental focus.
Coee fruit concentrate: an extract from the whole coee cherry (including the flesh of the berry that surrounds the
coee bean), which contains several distinctive compounds not found in coee beans themselves. Coee fruit
concentrate may help support healthy levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which has been called
“fertilizer for your neurons.” This property is unique to the concentrate and is not observed with brewed coee, green
coee bean extract, caeine, or chlorogenic acid, which are other coee compounds and derivatives. Contains less
caeine per serving than a typical cup of decaf coee.
