The Science Behind ELEVATE

         Alpha GPC

Alpha GPC works fast and helps deliver choline to the brain and increases the production of acetylcholine. This compound is know to be highly bioavailable as it has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and in turn increase the release of dopamine and calcium in the brain. This improves memory formation and enhances learning ability. The increased Dopamine levels play a major role in how we feel pleasure. It's a big part of our unique human ability to think and plan.

 

          Brahmi

Brahmi contains saponins called Bacosides, which appear to affect certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Multiple studies show, Brahmi seems to increase the effects of Serotonin, Gamma Aminobutyric Acid and Acetylcholine. It’s effects on these neurotransmitters, along with its antioxidant and neuroprotective actions in the brain are known to enhance mental function, memory and easing anxiety and depression

 

          Ginkgo Biloba

One of the oldest living tree species known to man. Research shows, ginkgo improves cognitive function because it promotes good blood circulation in the brain and protects the brain and other parts from neuronal damage. Commonly used for healing purposes in traditional Chinese medicine, Ginkgo contains flavonoids, which have powerful antioxidant qualities, and terpenoids, which acts as a vasodilator. This protects against aging-related issues such as dementia by improving ocular and cerebral blood flow.

 

          L-Theanine

L-Theanine is an amino acid that is found in tea leaves. L-Theanine elevates levels of GABA, Serotonin and Dopamine. These neurotransmitters work in the brain to regulate emotions, mood, concentration, critical thinking, alertness, and sleep. Increasing levels of these calming brain chemicals promotes relaxation. Alpha brain waves are associated with a state of “wakeful relaxation”. That’s the state of mind you experience when meditating, being creative, or letting your mind wander in daydreaming. Another appealing aspect of L-theanine is that it works to relax without sedating. This is also used to tame the effects of stimulants and their comedown/ crash.

 

          N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid, which our body produces by itself, but supplementation is often necessary in order to optimize cognitive function. NALT is a modification of normal Tyrosine, as it contains an additive of Acetic Acid. This in turn helps to increase bioavailability of this ingredient in the bloodstream. Acetic acid also has some properties positively influencing the health of our brain. One of the most important benefits that we are able to get from NALT is that it is a precursor to L-DOPA, which further triggers the release of Dopamine, the “Feel Good” chemical for our brain.
