BrainPower was developed to optimise brain metabolism and enhance mental performance. It contains scientifically tested agents that promote blood flow in the brain to improve the brain's cells energy and increase the production of Acetylcholine and Phosphatidylcholine to protect the structure and proper function of the central nervous system.
In today's world, mental power is more important than ever. Aside from professional demands, more and more people choose mentally challenging activities in their spare time. This makes keeping your brain running in top-shape a necessity, both to enjoy life and stay mentally active well into old age.
Mental performance not only means remembering or learning names or numbers more efficiently. It also applies to the ability to grasp concepts more quickly, making the correct decisions more easily, concentrating fully and thinking logically.
An optimally functioning brain eliminates obstacles in thinking and allows you to tackle tasks more quickly, efficiently and easily. Supercharged thinking allows you to be more successful in your job and find more joy in your spare time. You will be known as more intelligent, creative and quick on your feet.
The brain is by far our body's most complex organ, both in its cell structure and chemical processes. When all its 100 million cells are working flawlessly, in unison with each other, the brain is capable of performing incredible feats.
Its complexity also makes it the most sensitive organ, which renders it very susceptible to deficiencies. Once the signal exchange between the brain's cells is obstructed we feel a clear restriction to our logical processes, similarly to being mentally blocked and incapacitated.
The causes for reduced mental performance could be a limited supply of oxygen, glucose and other nutrients reaching the brain. In most cases, however, it can be traced to a reduced production of Acetylcholine.
Acetylcholine is a chemical substance as critical as a neurotransmitter during exchanges between information within the brain's cells. Acetylcholine is a messenger agent for all learning- and memory-processes within our brain. Deficiencies in this messenger agent are suggested as a cause for dementia.
Although everybody experiences a certain reduction of mental capacity as a symptom of ageing, bad nutrition, stress, alcohol, nicotine, medications and environmental toxins can reduce the production of Acetylcholine early in life.
The brain's capacity to learn, concentrate and recall new things is largely dependent on a sufficient production of neurotransmitters. BrainPower increases the production of the critical neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. It enables you to learn more quickly and easily and memorise the newly learned information more efficiently.
Stress is often the result of not having the mental capacity for coping with the tasks given. BrainPower can help you with computing great volumes of information and reaching decisions more rapidly.
Optimised brain performance makes you achieve better results while encountering lower stress.
No matter whether you are a manager, programmer, manual labourer, physician or student, your success always depends on your mental performance.
You can only be successful at your job and enjoy the fruits of your labour if you have the mental power to push your way through, think logically, solve problems, and make decisions. BrainPower enhances your ability in all those categories.
It is completely normal to forget something occasionally. Should you find your weak memory affecting your quality of life, however, you should do something about it. The brain depends on healthy nutrition for an optimal supply of vital nutrients.
BrainPower increases the brain's blood flow by supplying these vital nutrients so you will feel more capable of memorising correctly.
To succeed in sports, athletes not only need physical strength and endurance but the concentration and mental flexibility to make split-second decisions. BrainPower contains the active agents necessary to maximise mental capacity and can thus directly enhance sports performance.
BrainPower contains fast-acting ingredients that immediately affect brain function, such as L-Theanine, but also substances that improve the brain function medium to long term, such as Citicoline Cognizin, Bacopa monnieri and Ginkgo Biloba extract, as well as vitamins, which are critical for the brain.
It is important to know, that - compared to the rapid effect of caffeine - the intake of brain nutrients does not immediately lead to a significant increase in brain performance.
Real brain-enhancing nutrients, as available in BrainPower, slowly but steadily build up their effect over weeks or even months. But their advantage is that they do not have any side effects and will not lead to a crash, which may be experienced with stimulants such as caffeine.
Many people start to feel the effect of BrainPower after one week. Depending on the individual situation, you should feel a noticeable effect within 4 to 6 weeks after taking BrainPower on a daily basis.
BrainPower has no side effects and can be taken all year round.
Baco Monnieri is also known as Brahmi. This Indian herb has already been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years as a 'brain tonic' to improve mental performance and memory.
BrainPower contains a patented Baco Monnieri full spectrum extract containing 9 bioactive, standardised photochemicals with a total Bacoside content of approximately 20%.
Baco Monnieri promotes brain performance by improving communication in the synapses of the neurons. It also has an influence on the production of serotonin and dopamine. These two hormones increase mental energy as well as the feeling of joy and peace and simultaneously reduce anxiety.
Even in children aged 4 to 18 years, Baco Monnieri improved mental alertness and performance in learning.
Baco Monnieri has shown no side effects during the studies and was well tolerated by all participants.
The brain accounts for only 2% of total body weight. But nevertheless, it requires 20% of the total energy of the body to be alert and focused throughout the day.
Citicoline (also known as CDP-Choline) is a natural nutrient, which can be found in every cell of the body. Citicoline supplies the brain with the energy needed to remain active. Regardless of the age of the person, it can support mental performance, concentration and memory.
CDP-Choline is a precursor for the production of phosphatidylcholine, which is essential for the structure and repair of cell membranes, as well as the transmission of signals from the exterior of the cell to its interior.
Citicoline also supports the health of the mitochondria, which is responsible for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a molecule, that stores energy in the cells and provides it on demand.
Cognizin® is a patented form of citicoline, which has been tested in many studies. There are no known side effects. Even if taken in higher amounts, Cognizin is considered a safe dietary supplement.
The active key ingredients in Ginkgo Biloba are secondary phytochemicals. The Ginkgo Biloba Extract in BrainPower is standardised to 24% Ginkgoflavonglycosides and 6% Terpenes, which guarantee its efficacy.
Ginkgo Biloba is known to promote blood circulation, especially in the very small blood vessels. Because of it, more oxygen and nutrients reach the tissue, which is especially beneficial for the gray matter of the brain.
L-Theanine is an amino acid, extracted from green tea. It stimulates the alpha waves in the brain and is also involved in the formation of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). L-Theanine relaxes the mind and at the same time enhances focus and attention.
All B vitamins help with metabolising carbohydrates into glucose, which is needed for the production of energy. They contribute to the normal function of the brain and the central nervous system, support normal cell function and the production of neurotransmitters.
Folic acid plays an important role in normal brain function, as well as mental and emotional health. It also supports the production of DNA and RNA and is especially important during pregnancy, childhood, and growing adolescents.
Folic acid has shown in a study to slow down the degeneration of the brain. In one study with 818 people, the participants either received folic acid or a placebo. The memory test showed that the folic acid group achieved results, which are usually seen in people who are 5.5 years younger. When testing the speed of thinking the folic acid group showed a performance equal to those, who were 1.9 years younger.
Niacinamide is also referred to as vitamin B3. It is very much involved in the production of energy and has a great influence on the overall brain metabolism. Niacinamide is crucial for mental energy, motivation, concentration, and memory, and can delay fatigue during strenuous mental work.
Niacinamide is also involved in the production of neurotransmitters, including serotonin, which enhances mood. It also improves the blood circulation of the brain, which supplies the brain cells with more oxygen and glucose to produce ATP. At the same time, niacinamide promotes the removal of waste products from the neurons.
