Nutrients that optimize your brain
The same principles that apply to the herbs in our formulas also apply to the nutraceuticals that we use to create a synergistic effect in rejuvenating your body’s energy systems. The nutrients we formulate with are combined for proper uptake assisting your body and brain to make high quality Chi and in this case, food for the brain. Feed your brain what it requires and it will boot up like a high performance computer.
Our proprietary nutrient blends contain no filler which allow for fast absorption. When consumed on a daily basis along within our proprietary herb blends, your body and brain are prepared for a day of focused awareness and clarity.
Choline is a member of the B-vitamin family and necessary for maintaining synaptic transmission and brain health. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which determines the speed with which the brain processes information. Acetylcholine is associated with memory retention and recall. It is estimated that 90% of all Americans are choline deficient.
Choline is involved with fatty acid metabolism. It is essential for brain and nervous system health. Choline is a component of all cell membranes and functions as cell signaling molecule.
D-Ribose is a naturally occurring, non-calorie, pentose sugar and a primary building block for the production of cellular ATP—Adenosine Triphosphate—the universal energy molecule of the body. Rigorous physical exercise and metabolic stress can cause a severe drop in cardiac and skeletal ATP levels. Supplemental D-Ribose may help replenish depressed levels of ATP, leading to improved workout recovery.
DMAE or dimethyaminoethanol, is a bioactive precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which supports nerve signal transmission and healthy brain function. DMAE has been found to enhance mental concentration. It works synergistically with choline and B-vitamins for healthy brain maintenance and mental acuity.
DMAE is often mistaken on labels for DMAA or dimethylamylamine, a chemical stimulant on the FDA watch list. DMAA is on the list of chemicals not allowed for sports competition. DMAE is a nutritional supplement with over 40 years of use in the health market to support brain function.
DMG or dimethyglycine is a dimethylated derivative of the amino acid glycine. It is an immune system modulator and enhances brain function, mental acuity, cardiovascular function and glucose metabolism. DMG improves oxygen utilization, athletic performance and reduces lactic acid buildup during workouts.
DMG supports methylation of folate and homocysteine and supports methionine metabolism. Research shows it to be physiologically active and important to cell metabolism, as well as a supplier of essential methyl groups for modifying, building, and detoxifying many components in the body.
Glycine is an amino acid with both inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitter properties. It is the simplest and most prevalent of all the amino acids. Glycine combines with many toxic substances, converting them to harmless substances to be excreted.
Glycine has a calming effect on the brain and may help promote deeper sleep. It has shown positive effects on attention and memory.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid precursor for the synthesis of neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine. Dopamine powers up the brain and controls cravings for sweets. L-Tyrosine is important for healthy adrenal and thyroid function, promotes a positive mental state and healthy stress response. It also can function as an adaptogen by relieving mood swings and other physical symptoms of stress. Chronic stress inhibits conversion of phenylalanine to tyrosine making supplementation of tyrosine important. Tyrosine is a powerful antioxidant and inhibits fat oxidation.
Taurine is an essential amino acid which is not used in protein synthesis but found throughout the nervous system. It stabilizes cell membranes and aid in the transport of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of cells. Taurine is found the brain and the nervous system and works with GABA and glycine as an inhibitory neurotransmitter.
