Lately, have you felt like you've been in a mental fog, or you just need a little extra boost to help improve your cognitive function throughout the day? Well, you're not alone and that is precisely why we've packed NANO Neuro+ full of natural ingredients to help you elevate your mental performance. In this article, we'll discuss a few of the key ingredients like green tea and bacopa extracts and how they can elevate your mental clarity at work, school, and in life.
Brain boosting supplements have been gaining more and more recognition, and have quickly gained popularity within the last decade. It seems everyone is looking for quick and simple ways to increase their memory, productivity, and focus.
It is well known that regular exercise can boost cognitive function, but are there other natural ways to improve cognitive function through supplementation? In short, yes. I mean who wouldn't want to unlock unlimited cognitive potential by taking a "magic pill"?!
While that "magical pill" may not exist yet, there are some pretty amazing supplements out there that can naturally elevate your mental function like DMAE, green tea extract, Bacopa extract, GABA, and DHA. While high mental function is reliant on the three basic pillars of adequate hydration, nutrition, and sleep. These natural ingredients can elevate you even further.
NANO Neuro+ is a natural, over the counter supplement that contains the aforementioned ingredients to help your body when your hydration, nutrition, and sleep fall short. Avoid the inevitable crash with our specialized blend of scientifically-backed nootropic ingredients.
What is a Nootropic?
Nootropics (/noʊ.əˈtrɒpɪks/ noh-ə-TROP-iks) (colloquial: smart drugs and cognitive enhancers) are drugs, supplements, and other substances that may improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation 1. As previously alluded to, within NANO Neuro+ are a variety of science-backed ingredients that can help increase your cognitive state. Learn about a few of the power-packed nootropics found within NANO Neuro+ and what these ingredients can offer you.
The compound DMAE is naturally produced within your brain and can help with:
Neuroprotection: DMAE helps eliminate free radicals from brain cells.
Neurotransmission: DMAE suppresses choline uptake by cells within your body which increases the availability of free choline in your system.
Neurotransmitters: DMAE also stimulates cholinergic receptors that may promote the synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh), an important neurotransmitter, in your brain and muscles.
Mood: The use of DMAE can help regulate neural communication within the brain which can help promote better mood, more energy, and even sleep patterns 2.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea extract is rich in polyphenols that not only have nootropic but also neuroprotective effects. Green tea extract can enhance memory and learning abilities as well as delay aging.
Polyphenols: These include catechins, theaflavins, tannins, and flavonoids, all with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Cognitive function: Green tea can improve cognitive function by increasing the production of neural progenitor cells 3.
Blood Flow: Green tea extract has been observed to increase blood flow to the brain by up to 40% 4.
Mood: The ingredients within green tea can help reduce both anxiety and fatigue 5.
Bacopa monnieri, is a traditional Ayurvedic medicine, used for centuries as a memory-enhancing, anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain suppressing), antipyretic (fever), sedative, and antiepileptic agent. The plant itself, plant-extract, and isolated bacosides (the primary active compounds) have been extensively investigated in several laboratories for their neuropharmacological effects and a number of reports are available supporting their nootropic action 6.
Bacopa monnieri is traditionally used for various ailments but is best known as a neural tonic and memory enhancer. Numerous animal and in vitro studies have been conducted, with many evidencing potential medicinal properties. Several randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials (the gold standard of research study designs) have substantiated Bacopa monnieri's nootropic utility in humans. There is also evidence for potential attenuation of dementia, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy 7.
Contains powerful antioxidants
Boost neural function
Can reduce anxiety and stress
GABA (Gamma- Aminobutyric Acid)
GABA is a neurotransmitter found naturally within the brain. While commonly known for its relaxing effects supplementing with GABA has also been observed to have nootropic effects. As the main inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA’s function is to bind to neurons and reduce their activity, working as a natural calming agent. This effect results in the reduction of anxiety and promotes relaxation 8.
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
The compound DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid and is crucial for the healthy structure and function of the brain at all ages. It has been observed to have an impact on the brain’s signaling systems, neurotransmitters, memory, learning, focus, and attention. It can even help reduce cognitive decline.
Release of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which is responsible for promoting the health and growth of neurons within your brain.
Release of Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a compound responsible for promoting connectivity between neurons.
Neuroplasticity. DHA helps your brain build new neural pathways. Critical for maintaining a healthy brain. And optimizing neural signaling and cognition.
Neuroprotection. DHA acts as an anti-inflammatory by reducing the enzyme COX-2. Inflammation is a key factor in both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease 9.
Tips From the Pros:
The recommended serving size is 2-capsules a day taken in the morning. Based on recommendations from our athletes, they recommend only taking 1-pill at first to see how it affects you, and after a week increasing the dose to the recommended 2-capsules.
NANO Neuro+ is best taken first thing in the morning.
Everyone is different, while most people report noticing the effects within the first week, it may take longer for some individuals to notice a difference.
