Ingredients Explained

Bacopa Monnieri: 20% Bacosides Extract


Bacopa is one of the most well known cognitive enhancing herbal extracts and most widely used medicinal plants. This particular extract is perfectly balanced; potent without being overly refined so you get broad benefits of various plant compounds. We find that it enhances our focus and clarity of mind.
“Bacopa monnieri (also known as brahmi, water hyssop, Bacopa monniera, and Herpestis monniera), is a creeping perennial with small oblong leaves and purple flowers, found in warm wetlands, and native to Australia and India. Commonly found as a weed in rice fields, BM grows throughout East Asia and the United States.16 The entire plant is used medicinally.”
“Unlike the potentially addictive and forceful action of widely used psychostimulants, chronic and moderate administration of BM appears to nourish rather than deplete neurons, an action compatible with 1400 years of Ayurvedic study. BM was initially described around the 6th century A.D. in texts such as the Charaka Samhita, Athar-Ved, and Susrutu Samhita as a medhya rasayana–class herb taken to sharpen intellect and attenuate mental deficits. The herb was allegedly used by ancient Vedic scholars to memorize lengthy sacred hymns and scriptures. BM is colloquially called Brahmi, after the Hindu creator-god Brahma, especially when combined with other alleged intellect-sharpening herbs like Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola). BM is consistently found in the many Ayurvedic preparations prescribed for cognitive dysfunction.”
“Cognitive enhancement typically exacts a toxicological and psychological toll.14 The milieu of nootropic phytochemicals found within Bacopa monnieri (BM), primarily triperpenoid saponins called bacosides, exhibit minimal observable adverse effects at standard dosages. BM demonstrates anti-oxidant,5 hepatoprotective,6 and neuroprotective7 activity. Emerging research demonstrates several mechanisms of action—acetylcholinesterase inhibition, choline acetyltransferase activation, β-amyloid reduction, increased cerebral blood flow, and monoamine potentiation.”

Gingko Biloba:

25% Flavonol Glycosides/ 6% Terpene Lactones


“The Maidenhair tree, Ginkgo biloba is thought to be the oldest species of tree in existence. It is indigenous to China, Japan and Korea and can live up to 1000 years (Mix 2000). Extracts from its leaves have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for several millennia.”
Ginkgo biloba for cognitive improvement in healthy individuals
“The active compounds of GBE are primarily flavonol glycosides (24%) and terpene compounds such as ginkgolides and bilobalide (6%) with smaller amounts of proanthocyanidins [25]. The compounds have been shown to possess potent free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties that may play an important role in the neuroprotective properties of GBE [52526]. GBE also influences a number of neurotransmitter systems that are considered critical in cognition [2627]. In particular, GBE is thought to enhance cholinergic processes in various cortical regions [528]. Animal in vitro studies indicate that GBE increases acetyl-choline (ACh) release in hippocampal synaptosomes [29]. Animal in vivo studies indicate that GBE improves performance on behavioural measures of spatial working memory [30], attenuates the amnesia induced by scopolamine [31], and increases the density of hippocampal muscarinic receptors [32].”
“Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE) from dried leaves of the tree Ginkgo biloba is increasingly used in Europe (especially Germany) and the United States of America to alleviate symptoms associated with age-related cognitive impairment such as age-related amnesic condition, vascular dementia and dementia of the Alzheimer’s type [16]. Recent studies appear to indicate that GBE (120–600 mg) moderately enhances a number of cognitive processes in healthy young individuals as well as those suffering from age related cognitive impairment.”
“One such cognitive domain that GBE has shown to improve across a number of studies is Working Memory (WM) [10152324]. A previous study from our laboratory [15] revealed that 30-day administration of 120 mg/day GBE in young volunteers resulted in significant improvements in both digit span backwards and working memory speed. In a review of 29 randomized clinical trials examining the cognitive effects of GBE, Kaschel [22] concluded that as many as 20.7% of WM tests in chronic GBE trials had yielded significant results.”

Huperzine A:


Huperzine A is an alkaloid isolated from a Chinese club moss. Due to its potent neuroprotective activities, it has been investigated as a candidate for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. It has shown significant choline sparing effects, which allow for the brain to maintain more of these neurotransmitters for use.
