So what is Brain Boost™ you say?
Brain Boost™ starts off 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!
BUILD: AMINO ACIDS & B VITAMINS
Designed to build brain cells and get that grey matter totally toned. Brain-building amino acids and B-vitamins are all in the mix.*
Amino Acids and B Vitamins build up your brain’s neurotransmitter supplies.
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
Your brain crave ketones from MCTs. They’re like jet fuel for brains. And this special blend has enough to have you kicking butt everywhere from budget meetings to book club.*
Fuel your brain with MCT Oil Powder (Caprylic Acid, C8) 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.*
Brains – ya can’t live without ‘em. But all your thinking wears your brain out. That’s why the Brain Boost™ formula delivers plenty of TLC in the form of the brain-loving antioxidant, Resveratrol.*
As an anti-oxidant, Resveratrol protects your brain from free radicals.
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: GINGKO & LION'S MANE
I’ve got one word for you, “neuroplasticity.” Slide me some Lion’s Mane and Ginko, and you'll be able to adapt to anything.*
Lion’s Mane and Ginkgo are two superherbs that have been used for brain health for millennia.
Gingko boosts blood flow and mental clarity. It’s been used since ancient times as a natural medicine for brain and nerve health, and now science is recognizing its value. Studies are finding that it contains specialized polysaccharides and other molecules that are able to cross the blood-brain barrier.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. Lion’s Mane helps your brain make new brain cells and new connections. For all these reasons Lion's Mane is considered a nootropic, molecules that support cognitive function, including memory and creativity.*
