A special type of mushroom containing active components Hericenones, Erinacines, and antioxidants.
- Improves neuron health by reducing overstimulation, promoting regeneration, and limiting stress.
- Has antioxidant effects
- Helps with managing lipids and metabolism
L-Tyrosine helps to activate metabolic pathways that adrenaline – which are typically produced during acute stress and “fight or flight” scenarios.
- Adrenaline is quickly depleted during stressful moments due to a lack of L-Tyrosine.
- Supplements including L-tyrosine and caffeine can maintain reaction time and improve subjective feelings of focus and alertness following exhaustive exercise.
- Structurally similar to thyroid hormones and may help in their formation.
Choline is an essential nutrient for brain health and synaptic plasticity.
- Choline improves structural integrity, signaling capacity and the fluidity of neural membranes. It’s estimated that close to 90% of the population does not get the recommended amount of choline daily.
- It has been shown that a dose of 500mg of Choline can boost focus, mood and concentration abilities.
- This is tantamount to pushing through your workout. Utilizing this effectively dosed compound, you will be able to focus on taking less rest or being distracted during your training. Giving your 110% will really be your 110%.
- A study conducted by Sun et al. (1999) reported that subjects who supplemented with choline for 4 weeks improved learning performance and memory compared to a placebo group.
Mucuna seed is a rich source of L-DOPA which mimics dopamine in the body.
- Mucuna supplementation has been shown to decrease cortisol levels
Rhodiola Rosea root extract has a wide range of adaptogenic functions, which means it may help you deal with stress and manage its effect on your body.
- One way that Rhodiola may help is by supporting the neurological mechanisms that deal with stress.
- It may also reduce fatigue and exhaustion in prolonged stressful situations.
- Research suggests Rhodiola can have a positive effect on cognition, feelings of well-being, and decrease symptoms of depression.
- A study conducted by Edwards et al. (2012) found Rhodiola extract used twice daily for 4 weeks in persons with life and work-related stress was able to greatly reduce dysfunction and fatigue associated with stress in a time-dependent manner.
Dimethylethanolamine, or DMAE, is an antioxidant and cognitive support ingredient.
- Helps protect from iron-induced oxidation to provide anti-oxidative effects and maintain cell membrane integrity.
- May be able to improve skin health by decreasing spots and improving elasticity
Kanna is a psychoactive herb without hallucinogenic or habit-forming properties. It is traditionally used prior to stressful events to curb anxiety and improve performance.
- Inhibits phosphodiesterase 4 in the amygdala to exert antidepressive effects.
- Has been noted to have powerful reductions in anxiety
- Improves cognition and executive functioning during tests
Caffeine is the world’s most popular supplement. It is capable of many things, including increasing metabolic rate and thermogenesis, boosting fat oxidation, enhancing pain tolerance, and improving athletic performance.
- One study in trained athletes found improved power output (7%) and total work performed (8.5%) compared to placebo. More power and more work equals more gains.
- Supplementation with 400mg caffeine (the amount in RIPTX) has been found to increase thermogenesis by 300 Calories per day – potentially eliminating an entire day’s worth of calories over a 1 week span.
- Can improve endurance performance up to 40%.
Infinergy™ Dicaffeine Malate
Infinergy™ provides all of the same great benefits as caffeine anhydrous. However, it’s specialized form with malic acid affords it the benefit of having no crash or jitters.
- Adrenaline, fat oxidation, performance, no crash!
Green Tea Extract
Green Tea Extract is an herbal derivative from green tea leaves, containing antioxidant ingredients and thermogenic compounds.
- This extract contains high amounts of catechins, including EGCG which helps with the metabolism of fat at rest and during exercise performance.
- Green tea also reduces the formation of free radicals in the body which protect cells and molecules from damage.
- A meta-analysis of 11 studies looking at green tea consumption over a period of 12 weeks’ minimum noted, on average, 1.31kg weight loss.
Dynamine is methylliberine – an alkaloid isolated from kucha tea. It is similar to TeaCrine, but it works faster and provides a more intense effect.
- Reported to work in as few as 10 minutes.
- May improve mood, focus, and energy levels.
- One of the actives alkaloids in coffee.
L-Theanine is an amino acid, that when consumed produces GABA, a neurotransmitter which acts on the brain to reduce the perceived stress.
- Research suggests that L-Theanine’s biggest supplemental role may be in taking the “edge” off of other stimulants.
- A combination of L-Theanine with caffeine is noted to be synergistic in promoting thermogenesis, cognition, and attention.
- Giesbrecht et al. found the combination of L-theanine and caffeine significantly improved accuracy during task switching, self-reported alertness, and reduced self-reported tiredness.
Rauwolfia Vomitoria is a plant found in Africa that has been used in traditional medicine for heart, cancer, and brain ailments.
- May reduce blood pressure and blood sugar.
- Has been noted to reduce psychosis
- Possibly effective for fat oxidation and attention by virtue of containing yohimbine.
Q: What is the best way to use NeuroX™?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop (5.5 grams) in 8-16oz of water and consume 20-30 minutes before exercise, work, or studying. Begin with a half (1/2) scoop to assess tolerance.
