It’s a lot to wrap your mind around everything the brain does, from coordinating the basics like blinking and breathing to higher cognitive functions like thinking, learning, and memory.
Nootropic Elixir combines the best ingredients from nature to help support optimal brain function, memory, and focus while providing long-term benefits for brain health.
Brain and Body
Although it weighs about 3 pounds or just 2% of an average person’s body weight, the brain has an outsized demand for resources and consumes around 20% of the body’s oxygen supply (1). The brain is the body’s most complex organ and is packed with around 86 billion neurons. Each of these neurons forms connections with many others to exchange information and create circuits, resulting in trillions of connections throughout the brain (2).
This breath-taking complexity and high demand for resources are how the brain enables us to do all that we do but it can also be a vulnerability. The brain requires a lot of support to deliver peak performance, and this is especially true where higher cognitive functions like attention, creativity, and problem-solving are concerned.
When conditions are less than ideal, the brain can’t function optimally. Balanced nutrition, good sleep, and adequate exercise go a long way to improving cognitive clarity. However, targeted support from nootropics can deliver an added mental edge.
Nootropics for a Sharper Mental Edge
The word nootropic (pronounced noo·traa·pik) comes from the Greek words nous, which means “mind” and tropē, which means “turning”. It refers to substances that help to enhance cognitive functions like thinking, memory, and focus in healthy people.
Nootropic Elixir was formulated with science-based, natural ingredients to support both on-demand focus for cognitive performance and long-term brain health. Its blend of ingredients combines brain-boosting botanicals and plant-derived nutrients in a sleek, ready-to-drink elixir.
Green Tea Extract: As a natural source of both polyphenols and caffeine, green tea extract supports mental focus, concentration, decision-making, and working memory (3, 4). It helps to temporarily promote alertness, wakefulness, and enhanced cognitive performance (3, 4). Nootropic Elixir provides 80 mg of caffeine per serving, similar to the amount of caffeine in an 8 oz cup of coffee.
Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) Extract: Also known as Indian gooseberry, amla has been traditionally used in Ayurveda and herbal medicine for over 5000 years for its benefits for vitality and cognitive health (5).
Phosphatidylserine: An essential component of healthy nerve cell membranes and the insulating myelin layer that surrounds nerves and helps them transmit signals quickly, phosphatidylserine helps to promote effective signal transmission between nerve cells. Phosphatidylserine supplementation in older individuals has been reported to improve memory and cognitive capacity (6, 7). In addition, research suggests it supports brain function to promote mental focus, concentration, and stress resilience (8-10).
Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) Extract: Native to India and Persia, purslane is now consumed globally as a food. It is high in phytonutrients and other components that support brain health (11).
Brain Power Benefits
Nootropic Elixir is a convenient, daily dietary supplement designed to revitalize your focus with traditional herbs and nutrients and a naturally sweet cranberry and grape flavor. Its gluten-free and vegan-friendly formula delivers functional nutrition for focus on-demand while providing long-term support for brain health.
