Although the entire NeuroTech MAX formula is designed to support a healthy, focused mind, there are certain key ingredients that are directly related for mental clarity, focus and concentration. Below we have highlighted four of the main ingredients.
DMAE Bitartrate (Dimethylaminoethanol)
DMAE was once regulated as a prescription medication, but can now be found in the form of a dietary supplement. Tunnel Vision™ DMAE found exclusively in NeuroTech MAX along with other nootropic ingredients can help improve focus, concentration, mental clarity while reducing mental fatigue.
DMAE is a compound that is known as a mind health compound. It does this by reducing buildup of what is known as the ‘age pigment’, which impairs cognitive function and is implicated in the cognitive decline with age. It can also increase levels of the compound involved with memory, acetylcholine.
It can also protect neurons and other cells from harmful effects of certain types of oxidation by embedding itself in the structure of the cell and acting as an anti-oxidant, as well as sustaining metabolic processes in the body through a process known as ‘methyl donation’.
GABA (Gama Amino butyric acid)
Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain. Neurotransmitters function as chemical messengers. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system.
When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA receptor, it produces a calming effect. This can help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear.
GABA is known by some to be the “brakes” of the brain. It is the body’s most important inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means it lowers the activity of neural cells in the brain and central nervous system, having the effect of moving the brain and the body into lower gear. By inhibiting neural activity, GABA, reduces mental and physical stress, lowers anxiety, and creates a calmness of mood. GABA also plays an important role in regulating muscle tone. In combination with glutamate, the body’s most important excitatory neurotransmitter, GABA is an important contributor to the body’s overall mental and physical homeostasis, or balance.
Huperzine A is a cognitive enhancer that inhibits an enzyme that degrades the learning neurotransmitter, acetylcholine; due to this, a relative increase occurs. It belongs to the cholinergics class of molecules, and may be useful in fighting cognitive decline due to aging.
Several studies suggest that Phosphatiylserine may boost your brain power. In studies, people who took the supplement scored higher on short-term memory, mood, and concentration tests. For example, they could better recall names and objects. Additional research is ongoing to further confirm these results.
