Forgot where you parked the car? Left out an essential ingredient in the family's favourite dish? Or have you just had to pull yourself up a few times during the day as you found you were taking longer than usual to finish a project, meet a deadline or string a cohesive sentence together?
If this sounds like you - it could be you are suffering from a spell of tired brain/foggy brain or even the yet-to-be-proven phenomenon of "pandemic brain'.
Help is at hand.
Yootropics Brain is the first and ONLY universal and non-stimulant nootropic to be listed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia and is the result of extensive research by dedicated medical experts with a deep knowledge of cognitive functionality.
The unique formulation targets multi pathways of the brain and is scientifically proven to evaporate brain fog by enhancing energy levels, boosting focus and optimising adaptation to stress.
Yootropics Brain is a 'whole brain' nootropic scientifically proven to optimise cognitive performance as well as long-term brain health.A recent Harvard study estimates 22-32 percent of patients who suffered COVID-19 still have brain fog as part of their infection, particularly in cases of 'long-COVID'.
Dubbed as 'pandemic brain fog' by media around the world and, while not an official condition, there have been many reports of people feeling more distracted, unable to focus and feeling more easily overwhelmed than usual.
Aussie start-up Yootropics was created by Nick Austin and Ted McGill and was launched to lead the Australian market in premium nootropics.
Brain is the first in their range. Soon to launch Calm (will calm the mind and get you 'in the zone'), and Focus (heightens cognitive performance to give you that 'ninja-like' edge).
Ryan Morgan, a registered psychologist and specialist in cognitive performance at Yootropics and BIOV8, helped lead the design team for Brain.
Nootropics have been used for years by Silicon Valley execs wanting to get that edge, but what are they?
Think of them as a multi-vitamin for your brain that can be tailored to optimise specific cognitive functions from speed to recall, learning, memory to overall brain health. Nootropics refer to a group of drugs and supplements that aim to improve cognitive functions in healthy individuals.
Nootropics work through various mechanisms in the brain, by increasing neurotransmitter release or modulating the release; modulating transmitter receptor sites; modulating neurotransmitter enzymes; influencing neuro-inflammation in the brain; reducing oxidative stress, and acting as precursors to various neurotransmitters.
What is a nootropic stack and what's in Brain?
A nootropic stack is simply a combination of nootropics packaged together, typically in a capsule or tablet. A stack is a customised selection of nootropics that are tailored to enhance cognitive domains of the highest importance.
These may be alertness, speed of recall, creativity, processing speed or a combination of these.
The active ingredients in the Brain stack include;
- Salvia officinalis (sage),
- Bacopa monnieri (water hyssop),
- Mecobalamin (co-methylcobalamin),
- Pyridoxine hydrochloride,
- Levomefolate glucosamine (levomefolic acid),
- Panax ginseng (ginseng),
- Rhodiola rosea,
- Pinus pinaster (cluster pine),
- Cordyceps sinensis (caterpillar fungus),
- Ubiquinol-10 and Zinc amino acid chelate.
Between them, these ingredients have supporting scientific evidence that shows they improve mental alertness and cognitive performance, support focus and energy levels, enhance learning ability, memory recall and increase attention span.
They also have been scientifically proven to reduce cognitive fatigue, reduce free radicals formed in the body and enhance how the body adapts to stress.
