  • 2 min read

1. Gingko Biloba

Gingko biloba, a powerful ingredient for the brain, increases blood flow to the brain, improving cognitive function and memory. It has neuroprotective properties that help protect the brain from age-related decline and damage, supporting optimal brain function and long-term brain health. It may also reduce oxidative stress for better overall brain function

2. Alpha GPC (Glycerophosphocholine)

Alpha GPC is a vital nutrient for optimal brain health. It increases acetylcholine production, which plays a key role in memory and learning. Alpha GPC supports cognitive function, enhances focus and attention, and promotes mental clarity. It appears to also support cellular membranes, and may help prevent cognitive decline. It can also help athletes increase power output. It seems to enhance natural growth hormone levels. 

3. Huperzine A

Huperzine A, a natural compound from Chinese club moss, improves cognitive function and protects against age-related decline. It inhibits breakdown of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter essential for memory and learning. With Huperzine A, you can unlock your brain's full potential and achieve peak performance in all areas of your life.

4. Phosphatidylserine

Phosphatidylserine supports healthy brain cell structure and function, improving cognitive function and promoting long-term brain health. It is natural and has neuroprotective properties. Using it is essential for optimal brain function and protection against age-related decline. It can also help decrease the stress hormone cortisol which can improve overall body function!

5. Caffeine

Anyone who has had a cup of coffee knows the “alertness” effect of caffeine. It is one of the most well studied ergogenic compounds and can help you increase mental and physical performance! It helps block the compound that makes you sleepy. A few ways it works is antagonism of the adenosine receptors mainly in the central nervous system creating more focus and energy and inhibition of phosphodiesterases leading to an increase level of cyclic AMP in muscle tissue (creating a more favorable intracellular environment in active muscle). Caffeine can also increase neurotransmitters!

6. Acetyl-l-Carnitine

This form of the amino acid L-carnitine has been shown to increase brain function, make you more alert, increase blood flow, and reduce brain fatigue. It might even help with improved body composition.

7. N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine 

This derivative of the amino acid L-tyrosine supercharges brain function by boosting key neurotransmitters like epinephrine and norepinephrine. This leads to incredible focus and mental clarity! It may also help prolong the stimulation effects of caffeine when combined.

8. L-Theanine

This amino acid found in green tea can elevate key neurotransmitters that help increase alertness, energy, and mental concentration. It enhances GABA thereby increasing dopamine and serotonin levels. It can help you relax and sleep better as well!

9. Mucuna Pruriens

This magic velvet bean extract can boost dopamine levels for enhance mood and protects the brain and supports healthy brain activity. It contains about 15% L-Dopa which can convert directly into dopamine! It can jumpstart focus and increase memory!

Look for these ingredients in any brain booster products! These natural brain boosters can unlock brain power! The NZT-48 Limitless pill includes these nutrients plus other support ingredients to truly and comprehensively optimize brain function and memory improvement!
