L-Dopa - A precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine that crosses the blood brain barrier and powerful nootropic. Dopamine is most associated with focus and is a messenger for the main pleasure centers of the brain and is necessary for executive function and motor function.
Bacopa - Studies have shown that Bacopa can improve cognition and learning. It has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to improve memory. This nootropic is commonly used to treat anxiety. It has been shown to help balance serotonin by increasing serotonin synthesis and regulating reuptake. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter related to mood, memory, learning, sexual desire and function and sleep.
Rhodiola - Studies have shown the nootropic Rhodiola may decrease stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression while increasing mood, concentration, brain function, exercise performance as well as anti-cancer properties. Laboratory studies have shown Rhodiola to help balance dopamine and serotonin.
Vitamin C - Ascorbic acid aids in the synthesis and catabolism of tyrosine to the neurotransmitter dopamine and ultimately norepinephrine. Vitamin C has is neuroprotective and an antioxidant.
Vitamin D - This vitamin is needed for the absorption of magnesium and zinc. Together with omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D is also essential to the synthesis of serotonin which regulates mental skills, attention and social behavior.
Thiamin - An essential micronutrient which can not be made in the body. It can be found in legumes, whole grains and some fish and meat.
Riboflavin - Essential to the production of major coenzymes which are involved in energy metabolism, antibody production, cellular respiration, growth and development. Riboflavin is involved in maintaining balanced levels of homocysteine.
Niacin (Vitamin B3) - Niacin, is crucial for metabolic reactions as well as nucleic acid synthesis. It has been shown to help relieve anxiety, irritability, depression as well as poor concentration.
Vitamin B6 - Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, is essential for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. It is also fundamental for the production of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin which are necessary to maintain energy levels and concentration.
Folate (vitamin B9) - Folic acid is actually a synthetic folate and is poorly utilized by the human body. Folate is found naturally in uncooked leafy greens and the word folate itself is derived from the Latin word folium which means leaf. 5-methyltetrahydrofolate also known as 5-MTHF. 5-MTHF is critical to many functions in the body such as the production of neurotransmitters and detoxification. It is critical to the body's methylation cycle. Folate helps to maintain healthy levels of oxygen in our bloodstream to combat stress and tiredness.
Vitamin B12 - Cobalamin is essential for memory and cognitive function. It is also a fundamental part of the methylation cycle which helps detox heavy metals, regulates gene expression, RNA processing and neurotransmitter production. B12 could be considered one of the best vitamins for focus.
Pantothenic Acid - Required to synthesize coenzyme A which is needed to metabolize fatty acids and other nutrients.
Iodine - Needed by cells to convert food into energy and regulate the thyroid gland. An iodine deficiency can result in lower IQs in children and impaired brain function in adults.
Magnesium - Can relax muscles, build strong bones and is one of the most highly required minerals by the human body. Magnesium has also been shown to boost cognitive abilities of the brain. Low levels of magnesium have been directly linked to depression.
Zinc - This mineral is required for the catalytic activity of roughly 100 enzymes. It plays a role in DNA synthesis, wound healing and proper immune function. Zinc along with magnesium are needed to make and regulate melatonin which synchronizes the body's circadian rhythms for sleep. Studies have also shown an improvement in brain function in individuals taking zinc along with magnesium and calcium.
Selenium - Necessary for cellular function and an essential component of various enzymes that make DNA and protect against cell damage and infection. It protects against oxidative stress in the brain and supports neurotransmission.
Dimethylglycine (DMG) - An amino acid and building block for protein. It has been used for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and may improve the effects of aging and improve athletic performance.
L-Theanine - Research show that L-Theanine may improve cognitive performance, relaxation, immunity, mental focus and stress relief.
L-Tyrosine - An essential component for the production of brain chemicals, neurotransmitters including dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) - Essential to the biosynthesis of serotonin.
Gamma-Aminobutyric-Acid (GABA) - A naturally occurring amino acid that functions as the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Studies have shown it to have a calming effect. It is commonly taken for muscle recovery and fat burning.
L-Glutamine - Studies show L-Glutamine to improve digestion, absorption and gut permeability.
L-Carnitine - Plays a critical role in transporting fatty acids into cells helping the body turn fat into energy. Studies suggest that it may improve markers of learning.
Taurine - Important to brain and heart functions. Studies have shown Taurine to boost physical performance.
Phosphatidylcholine - A source of choline that has been shown to improve cognitive function and memory.
Phosphatidylserine - A phospholipid that coats membranes and protects brain cells. It also carries messages between neurons.
Inositol - A sugar that provides structure to your cells. It interacts with insulin and hormones that are associated with mood and cognition.
Bacillus Coagulans - This beneficial probiotic can help balance the gut microbiome and improve digestion.
