St. John’s Wort falls under the herb family called Nervines, which are intended to nourish and support the central nervous system. They’re designed by nature to restore balance and restfulness in the body.
St. John’s Wort has a number of active ingredients, including hypericin, hyperforin, and adhyperforin.
These compounds are responsible for balancing serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline to healthy levels.
The result is a lifted and regulated mood and sense of well being.
Aside from its nootropic effects recognized throughout modern science today, Bacopa monnieri is a beautiful plant found in nature with succulent-like leaves with small white petals emanating from its yellow disk.
Bacopa has been shown to promote a healthy memory and support brain function by modulating the action of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF for short.
BDNF is associated with neuroplasticity and neurogenesis (the ability of your brain to change and learn new things) as well as learning, memory, mood, and overall sense of wellbeing.
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the blood and main precursor for the production of the neurotransmitter’s glutamate and GABA in the brain.
L-Glutamate is created and used in the brain for neurotransmitter synthesis, nucleotide and nucleic acid synthesis for glutathione production, and glucose metabolism.
Phosphatidylserine helps maintain the fluidity and permeability of brain cells. Picture it as a membrane encasing every one of your brain cells.
Phosphatidylserine has also been shown to promote healthy levels of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which is a protein similar to BDNF described above.
As an integral part of neurotransmitter formation and function, Phosphatidylserine boosts mental energy by powering oxygen and glucose to cells deep within the brain.
DMAE is a direct precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter found throughout the body but specifically in the brain.
Acetylcholine is responsible for encoding new memories, reasoning, concentration, cognition and the health of new synapses.
N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine helps support brain energy metabolism by fueling your mitochondria with fatty acids needed for energy metabolism.
Again, acetylcholine requires this nutrient for neurotransmitter formation which supports memory, mental alertness and fluid thought.
N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine really goes the distance by promoting Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) and supporting healthy cerebral blood circulation.
Ginkgo Biloba works in tandem to support cerebral blood flow.
Levels of acetylcholine from this blend is supported from breakdown thanks to Huperzine-A, which has been used for thousands of years to support short-term and long-term brain health.
