Product Details

BrainStorm® is designed to enhance brain function and support memory, by providing nutrients that variously support blood circulation, antioxidant activity, neurotransmitter production and neurological function.

Ginkgo is an antioxidant that may help protect the body from free radical damage. Extensive studies show that Ginkgo enhances circulation, which may support brain function. Increased circulation also supports delivery of nutrients and removal of metabolic wastes.

Eleuthero is an adaptogenic herb known to support immune response, energy and concentration. It is widely used as a tonic to improve resistance to stress, restore vigor and support memory.

Asian ginseng is an adaptogenic, tonic and nervine herb, traditionally used to boost physical and mental vitality and speed up reaction time. The active ingredients in ginseng, called ginsenosides, are known to stimulate the nervous system and the immune system and support blood sugar within normal levels.

Gotu kola has traditionally been used in India and Indonesia for enhancement of energy.It has been shown to support circulation and to be mildly sedating. Gotu kola is not related to kola nut and does not contain caffeine.

Bacopa is an Ayurvedic herb used for 3,000 years to support memory and enhance intellectual and cognitive functions. It contains alkaloids called bacosides which have been shown to augment kinase, the protein involved in the synthesis of new neurons.

L-Glutamine is the most plentiful amino acid in the diet and has many functions in the body. These include involvement in cellular energy and growth and as a precursor to GABA, an important neurotransmitter.

L-tyrosine is an amino acid precursor to the catecholamine neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine, L-dopa and dopamine and requires other nutrients such as vitamins C and B6 for proper conversion. These neurotransmitters help regulate mental function, stress response, mood and other functions. Tyrosine is also involved in thyroid hormone production.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown to support nerve and brain function. It is crucial for the transfer of intracellular energy and in the production of acetylcholine, important for learning, attention and memory. It has been shown to help prevent damage from alcohol and support memory and mental performance in normal, healthy people.

Choline can serve as a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is known to support memory and cognitive function.

Inositol has long been studied and used clinically to nutritionally support mental function.

DMAE can increase choline and acetylcholine levels and has undergone much study.

Phosphatidylcholine and phosphotidylserine are phospholipids, key components of cell membranes. Phosphatidyl-choline is needed for normal brain development of the fetus and is a precursor to acetylcholine.

Quercetin has been shown to support the integrity of mast cells, reduce the production of prosta-glandins and leukotrines and play a role in normal capillary permeability.

Cayenne pepper contains the active ingredient, capsaicin, which has been studied for its effects on circulation, metabolism and the nervous system.

Many usual nutrients are also important to support brain function. For instance, thiamine (vitamin B1) and riboflavin (vitamin B2), both partially supplied in their predigested co-factor forms, have been shown in studies to provide support for neurological function and both nutrients assist in amino acid metabolism and enzyme production, critical to neurotransmitter production. Abraham Hoffer demonstrated over 40 years ago that niacin (vitamin B3) plays important roles in brain function.

Zinc plays a crucial role in hundreds of biological enzymatic processes, and is well known in Europe for its beneficial effects on brain activity. Besides the antioxidant function supplied by many of the above nutrients, BrainStorm® also contains the antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamins B12, C and E and trace minerals including selenium.
