Uridine Monophosphate is a cholinergic supplement that increases neuroplasticity, attention span, and can improve mood. It works by increasing the density of dopamine receptors in the brain, thus increasing dopamine output. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that regulates and affects different functions in the brain like motivation, mental energy and mood. Taking Uridine may give you more motivation and drive to complete tasks, while also providing heightened mental energy and the ability to focus for longer periods of time.
CDP Choline is a cholinergic precursor to acetylcholine. CDP Choline works by increasing the density of acetylcholine receptors in the brain, making them work better. When you increase the amount of acetylcholine present in the brain you may actually be able to stimulate more memory storage to occur, as well as gain faster access to stored memories. Increased amounts of acetylcholine in the brain can also lead to increased focus. CDP Choline increases the amount of catecholamines in the brain such as epinephrine and norepinephrine. This leads to greater alertness and mental clarity.
Phosphatidylserine is an amino acid derivative compound that is fat-soluble. It’s found in high amounts in the brain, where it supports cognitive function. Phosphatidylserine easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and when it does, it binds to neurotransmitters enabling the brain to metabolize glucose more efficiently. It also reduces the levels of cortisol in the body, causing an anti-stress effect which can lead to relaxation and an improved mood. It is considered to have neuroprotective properties as well because it increases cell membrane fluidity. PS has been used as an effective supplement in treating cases of ADD and ADHD.
DMAE is an organic compound that is naturally produced in the brain. DMAE helps the brain build phosphatidylcholine which contributes to cell membrane fluidity. It can improve mental concentration, has strong neuroprotective properties, and is widely used for its cognitive anti-aging properties. DMAE may be beneficial for individuals with ADHD or with trouble concentrating. It is also a supplement that improves memory due to its cholinergic activity in the brain.
Bacopa Monnieri is an Ayrvedic herb that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Bacopa Monnieri triggers more stimulation in the hippocampus, which is the part of the brain involved in long-term memory formation. By doing this, Bacopa Monnieri can improve your ability to learn by optimizing working and spatial memory. Bacopa also increases adaptogenic stress inhibition. This means Bacopa supplementation will aid your mind and body in better adapting and reacting to stress as well as improve your response to acute stress.
Gingko Biloba is one of the oldest tree species in the world. Ginkgo Biloba improves both short and long term memory recall, brain circulation and concentration. It also has neuroprotective properties, improves mood, and is an adaptogen like Bacopa Monnieri. When taken you may feel sharper and better able to access your brain for certain things you are trying to remember. Ginkgo Biloba makes the other ingredients in gBoost work better by providing better circulation to the brain.
Lion’s mane is an edible mushroom native to North America, Europe and Asia. Lion’s Mane increases nerve growth factor (NGF) in the brain. This means that it actually helps to grow more nerves and neurotransmitters in your brain, amplifying neural regeneration and myelin nerve sheath synthesis. Optimized NGF may support brain plasticity for storage of new learning and memories, as well as promoting robust brain cell replication and healthy brain cell membrane function. It can also improve memory and overall cognitive function.
When we set out to create gBoost™ our goal was to make the most effective brain supplement on the market. To do this we combined what we believe are the best nootropic ingredients at optimal dosages. We chose ingredients that work together or complement eachother to enhance the effects.
