L-THEANINE

L-Theanine may instill a state of calm, relaxed tranquility while simultaneously sharpening attention, alertness and focus.

YERBA MATE

Yerba mate is well known for providing an energy boost that’s been described as gentle, clean, and calm.

Compared to the other most commonly used stimulants in the world — coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa, and guarana — yerba mate reportedly delivers the most balanced energy boost.

Yerba mate drinkers experience a state of alert wakefulness similar to that of coffee, but without coffee’s side effects.

It rarely interferes with sleep and doesn’t cause caffeine jitters. Athletes use it to enhance physical performance.

GUARANA SEED

Guarana is derived from the seeds of a South American tree. Because it’s high in caffeine, guarana has become a popular energy supplement.

Researchers once believed that the active ingredient of guarana was a chemical specific to the plant -- guaranine. But they later discovered that it was just caffeine. Guarana has among the highest concentrations of caffeine in any plant. It may contain up to 3.6% to 5.8% caffeine by weight. Coffee only has up to 2%.

coffee and other caffeinated beverages seem to increase alertness when consumed throughout the day. Caffeine can improve mental performance and alertness in sleep-deprived people, and guarana would logically have the same effect.

HUPERZINE A

The mechanism by which Huperzine A supports cognitive function, memory, and overall mental well-being is both well-documented and easy to explain. Huperzine A inhibits the creation of acetylcholinesterase; an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. The absence of this enzyme means more acetylcholine is available for use in the brain, which means improved focus, enhanced memory function, and more efficienct brain cell maintenance.

 

While it does have multiple nootropic properties, the main way that greater acetylcholine benefits you is by improving memory function.

 

This is all very well documented in the scientific literature. Clinical trials in China have shown that Huperzine A “significantly improved memory deficits in older people with benign senescent forgetfulness, and patients with Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia”, all without any unwanted side effects or toxicity. In short, a must for any memory enhancer.

GREEN TEA LEAF EXTRACT

Green tea helps you focus for two reasons: one, it contains caffeine, and two, it contains L-Theanine. There is no doubt that caffeine helps you focus and improves your alertness. Good. That’s covered. The two ingredients also combine to “produce a better ability to focus attention, with improvement of both speed and accuracy." If you’re able to handle the caffeine content, introducing green tea into your diet is pretty much a no-brainer.
