Bacopa Monnieri is an ancient Ayurveda herb known for its attention boosting effects for over 5,000 years. Scientific studies back this claim up - Bacopa increases Long Term Potentiation (LTP) in your brain's hippo-campus. This means you will be able to concentrate more, remember more and learn quicker than without the ingredient. It improves mental performance by reducing anxiety and stress - helping you to stay motivated through even the most boring of tasks!
Ginseng is a perennial plant native to Southern Korea, China, and the Northern parts of Japan. It has been highly valued for its medicinal properties since ancient times. In fact, Ginseng is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine from which its name originated. Many studies have been performed on Ginseng Root to further understand its many health benefits. Ginseng works by reducing the hormone Cortisol which is responsible for stress, this in turn boosts cognitive well-being! It also promotes anti-inflammatory factors
which can be beneficial during training!
Lion's Mane is known historically for its benefits with brain longevity, cognitive enhancement andneuroprotective qualities, essentially the ability to enhance overall cognitive function. It works by promoting the production of NGF, or Nerve Growth Factor - a protein that plays an important role for the growth, maintenance, and survival of neurons! These neurons transmit information throughout the body to other nerve cells, muscles and glands so it's important that they're on their A game!
Zinc is another nootropic giant, it assists in a process called brain tubulin growth. This is the process where the growth of cells is stimulated by proteins, called tubulins, which are found in many different parts of the body. Healthy brain tubulins are vital to preserving nerve cells and fighting against degenerative brain diseases.
Iodine is one of the most important trace minerals for a healthy brain and body. However recent studies show that almost 1 in 3 people do not get enough iodine in their daily diet. Iodine helps promote the production of thyroid hormones. These hormones control the rate that chemical reactions take place in the body! Because of this Iodine helps regulate your metabolism, helps you focus and overall adds to the balance of your body!
Natural energy is about regulating the natural balance of hormones and chemicals already thriving within your body. When all of these factors are working simultaneously as one it creates the optimal playground for working out, studying and enjoying your life!
