Brain Boost™ Formula - Like if your barista was also a neuroscientist
Brain Boost™ starts with brain-building amino acids and B vitamins. Oh yeah! Then it piles on the ketones from MCT Oil. Brains crave fuel. Next come the antioxidants and Resveratrol. Amazing brains need protection from burnout. And finally, a healthy dose of Lion’s Mane and Ginkgo. Stay mentally limber and think big thoughts. Boom!*
Created by a team of physicians, nutritionists, inventors, and health-crazed creatives.
Build: Amino Acids & B Vitamins
Build up your brain’s neurotransmitter supplies with Amino Acids and B Vitamins.
Neurotransmitters are what your brain cells use to talk to each other and to the rest of your body. They play a big role in whether you feel happy or sad, motivated or wiped out, and clear or foggy.
The amino acid Acetyl-L-Carnitine is needed to make the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, which is a superstar in the memory and cognitive performance game. The "acetyl" version is a particularly bioavailable form – meaning it's easier for your body to absorb, and easier for it to get to your brain.
L-Theanine is a core building block of GABA, which helps to counter the stress response and contributes to feeling relaxed, focused, and calm.
L-Tyrosine is the foundation of dopamine, the "feel-good" neurotransmitter, and epinephrine, the "motivation and performance" neurotransmitter.
Add in the key B vitamins needed to run the enzyme machinery to build neurotransmitters: B9 (Folate), B6 (Pyridoxine), and B12 (Cobalamin) and you're good to go. We even use the super-activated forms of B6, Pyridoxal-5-phosphate, and B12, methylcobalamin, to make it extra easy for your body to use them.*
Fuel: MCT Oil
Fuel your brain with MCT Oil Powder for cognitive function and energy.
MCTs, otherwise known as Medium Chain Triglycerides, are relatively small fats – meaning that they're easier to absorb in your digestive tract than larger fats. And, when converted to ketones they cross the blood-brain-barrier and act as jet fuel for your brain. They’re particularly helpful when you've skipped breakfast, during that afternoon crash, or are otherwise running low on fuel.*
Protect your brain with Resveratrol, a powerful, brain-loving antioxidant.
Through the simple act of running the show, your brain is burning a ton of energy and generating free-radicals (unstable molecules that wreak havoc on your nerve cells). Your brain generates more free-radicals than any other organ in your body, but it’s not very good at getting rid of them. Bummer. That’s where antioxidants come in. Antioxidants neutralize and clear those toxic radicals. You get antioxidants from fresh fruits and vegetables. Resveratrol is a potent antioxidant. Scientific research has associated it with improved memory and cognitive function.*
Activate: Lion's Mane & Gingko
Activate your brain with Lion’s Mane and Ginkgo – two superherbs used for brain health for millennia.
Gingko is known to boosts blood flow, particularly in the tiny vessels that feed your brain. It’s been used since ancient times as a natural medicine for brain and nerve health, and now science is recognizing its value in upping mental clarity.
Lion’s Mane stimulates the production of nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). As we age, our ability to create new nerves and connections between nerves slows down. NGF and BDNF help your brain make new brain cells and new connections. Because of this Lion's Mane is considered a nootropic, molecules that support cognitive function, including memory and creativity.*
