Bacopa monnieri is a herbal extract. It increases choline concentrations in the brain and has been reported to reduce the effects of dementia (Dhanasekaran et al. 2007) and increase short-term recall (Pase et al. 2012). Working in tandem with the Alpha-GPC 50%, this increased choline will help your muscles and memory function optimally.
Noopept is not strictly a racetam though it also modulates AMPA receptors in the brain. It is much more powerful than piracetam and in eastern Europe is used post-trauma to help victims rehabilitate. It has been demonstrated to have effects on memory (Ostrovskaya et al. 2009), dementia (Trofimov et al. 2005) and anxiety (Andereeva et al. 2000).
Sulbutiamine is a synthetic form of Vitmaine B1. It has been shown to increase learning (Micheau et al. 1985) and memory (Bizot et al. 2005). It has also shown anti-depressive effects (Loo et al. 2005). Since having minor depression would be a source of cognitive stress and impair thinking, this extra benefit merits sulbutiamine’s inclusion in MXEL Edge.
Vitamin B6 is a Pyridoxine group that is used for hemoglobin synthesis, glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism and the producVitamin B6 is a Pyridoxine group that is used for hemoglobin synthesis, glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism and the production of neurotransmitters. Since we’re kicking your brain into overdrive, we’ll need some extra neurotransmitters. Vitamin B6 helps produce serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine and GABA. These play a role in cognition and mood. By regulating these, we can maximize results. No need to feel down or sluggish when your brain is aflame.
Vitamin D3 is fat soluble vitamin. This is one of the reasons we recommend you take XXX [insert product’s name here] with a fat source.Vitamin D3 has been shown to improve cognitive function and prevent dementia (Balion et al. 2012). Keeping conditions optimal before we boost them is important. The brain should have all the pieces it needs to get into overdrive without burning its future supplies.
Aniracetam is another member of the racetam family. Aniracetam has demonstrated the ability to slow down neuro-degeneration (Rogers and Marrs, 2002), increase in cognition (Nakamura, 2001) and decreased anxiety (Nakamura, 2001).
Oxiracetam a member of the racetam family. It has been found to help treat dementia but not Alzheimer’s (Gouliaev and Senning. 1994). Taken twice daily, it has been shown to increase spatial recall (Fordyce et al. 1995). Having problems at the gym after work? Clumsy when getting home? Oxiracetam will help you recall how to move smoothly.
Picamilon is a combination of niacian (vitamin B3) and GABA (a neurotransmitter). As with our above entries, increased GABA modulates muscle tension and nervous system readiness so you are neither to tense or relaxed but at ease and aware, ready for anything the day can throw at you.
PRL 8-53 is a little known nootropic. Researchers demonstrated increased short-term recall of over 100% compared to placebo for those over 30 (Hansl et al. 2008). Studying for that big presentation? Want to give a speech without cards? PRL 8-53 should be your go to nootropic.
Coluracetam is a newer member of the racetam family. Like the others it modulates ampa receptors and increases choline concentration in the brain. Developed by Brain Cells Inc in 1996 it has passed phase 2 trials for generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder. Giving the brain more raw materials to run and preventing lethargy and depression, coluracetam is a fin addition to product MXEL Booster.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Lion’s Mane Mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) is one of the mushrooms we used to eat before fast food became a way of life. In high doses it has demonstrated stimulated nerve growth (Mori et al. 2008), improved cognition and recall (Mori et al. 2009) and improved myelination (Kolotushkina et al. 2003) (meylin is the fatty insulator around nerves, the more meylin, the more insulated the nerves are, the faster and clearer the signals are from point A to point B).
Curcumin is a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. If paired with black pepper it can pass into the circulatory system. Once in the brain, it has a protective effect against glutamate induced cells death. It has been demonstrated to slow the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s and maintain healthy neurons and cognition compared to controls.
Ginkgo biloba is a Chinese adaptogenic herb. Known to improve cognitive performance and prevent cognitive decline by preventing the build up of beta amyloid proteins. It has been used for 1000s of years with no ill effects reported. Ginko has evidence of lowering blood sugar, improving anti-oxidant profiles, improving dopamine and serotonin concentrations in the brain and decreasing anxiety. It also has a mild blood thinning and cholesterol lowering effect.
Rhodiola rosea is the best known anti-fatigue agent after caffeine and unlike caffeine, it is not habit forming. It has notable effects of reducing depression and improving cognition. It appears to prevent neuro-degeneration and cognitive decline. It helps manage the effects of stress and anxiety. Due to its effects of minimizing fatigue, people are better able to perform exercise while taking rhodiola.
Mucuna Pruriens is a shrub which contains L-Dopa. It also helps produce 5-HTP and serotonin which help regulate mood and energy. There is a study indicating increased in testosterone production which will help with endocrine function and motivation. It has also been found to be an effective medication (in sufficient dose) for parkinson's disease.
