“A state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience is so enjoyable that people will continue to do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.”
– Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Csikszentmihalyi identifies the following six factors as encompassing an experience of flow
Backed by Research
A randomized double-blind Noopept study with 60 participants was conducted over a 10 day study. Noopept was shown to enhance expression of nerve growth factors (NGF) in the brain compared to the placebo group.
Rhodiola Rosea was given twice daily for 9 days, while the control group received a placebo pill. The group that was given Rhodiola Rosea saw reduced cognitive fatigue when compared to the placebo group.
Peak performance in the flow state
Our ingredients have purpose
Noopept is derived from a synthetic peptide chain linked by two amino acids: Glycine and Proline.
Increases levels of Nerve Growth Factors (NGF)
Improves associations between brain hemispheres
Supports survival of existence neurons
Encourages growth of new neurons and synapses
How it works
Noopept is shown to increase levels of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which regulates the growth, maintenance, and survival of nerve cells. NGF also helps your body create new neurons (Neurogenesis). Noopept increases levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which is considered one of the most important molecules responsible for forming memories and learning ability. Studies have shown that Noopept increases alpha/beta1 activity in the brain, which has been reported to aid in retention of facts, figures, and patterns.
It has only a few occasionally reported minor side effects that should be noted such as headaches, restlessness, and irritability. The lack of major side effects is one of the main reasons why the drug was approved for use in medical settings in various countries.
A unique supplement reported to enhance cerebral blood circulation, increase oxygen absorption to the brain, and act as an antioxidant.
Derived from the Periwinkle plant (Vinca Minor), which is native to central and southern Europe.
Improves memory recall
Increases concentration and focus
Enhances overall mood
How Vinpocetine Works
Vinpocetine works by increasing blood flow to the brain, without affecting circulation in the rest of the body. The increased blood flow oxygenates the brain tissue, which tends to improve overall brain function and efficiency. Vinpocetine has also been shown to increase production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is critical for brain function and responsible for delivering nutrients and oxygen to the brain. The increase in energy available to the brain results in mental clarity, sharp thinking and better reaction time.
Vinpocetine is extremely well-tolerated and no significant adverse effects have been reported.
A choline compound that is considered to be a potent memory booster with anti-aging properties. Extensive clinical trials have shown it to be an effective treatment for age-related memory loss associated with a variety of disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. It has been shown to be involved in cognitive functions such as memory formation, learning ability, and concentration.
Alpha-GPC is contained in many foods such as eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt. It is found naturally in the body and typically extracted from purified soy lecithin.
Enhances memory recall and consolidation
Amplifies effects of other nootropics
Promotes rapid recovery after physical exercise
How it works
Alpha-GPC is water soluble, allowing it to easily cross the blood-brain barrier, where it is metabolized into choline. Choline is then used as a substrate to biosynthesize acetylcholine, which has pivotal roles in memory formation and learning.Acetylcholine is utilized by the hippocampus, which is responsible for short-term to long-term memory consolidation. Alpha-GPC has also been shown to affect the production of HGH (human growth hormone) in the pituitary glands, which stimulates cell growth and repair.
Alpha-GPC is safe and well-tolerated in healthy adults, but some side effects such as headaches and nausea have been reported by a small percentage of study participants.
The most widely consumed central nervous stimulant. Typically consumed through caffeinated beverages to relieve drowsiness and to improve performance.
The most well known source of caffeine is the coffee bean however it is also found in the seeds, nuts, or leaves of a number of plants native to South America and East Asia.
Increases stamina and mental alertness
Synergistic effect with nootropics
Improves reaction time
How it works
Caffeine is completely absorbed within an hour following ingestion. The caffeine molecule is similar in structure to the adenosine molecule. Adenosine induces drowsiness, therefore consumption of caffeineblocks the action of adenosine, replacing it on the brain’s receptor. This consequently prevents the drowsiness that is induced by adenosine.
Caffeine is well tolerated by almost all adults within normal doses (80-160 mg). Most common side effects are appetite suppression, blood pressure increase, insomnia and jitters.
A naturally occurring amino acid found primarily in tea. It does an excellent job at relaxing without being a sedative, making it an excellent choice to pair with stimulants. It is renowned for its excellent nootropic properties such as improving memory, enhancing the ability to learn, and providing a calming effect.
L-theanine is almost exclusively found in tea leaves and can be naturally found in green, black or oolong tea.
Increases relaxation and sleep quality
Enhances mood and reduces anxiety
Improves memory recall
How it works
L-theanine is quickly absorbed and crosses the blood brain barrier. It increases alpha-1 brain wave activity within 30-45 minutes of ingestion. Alpha-1 activity is highly associated with relaxation and attention. It also promotes production of serotonin, dopamine and GABA which further back up these claims.
L-theanine is an amino acid with extremely low well tolerated by almost all adults within normal doses (80-160 mg). Most common side effects are appetite suppression, blood pressure increase, insomnia and jitters.
An natural herb with adaptogenic properties that can reduces stress, fatigue and exhaustion. It was commonly used in Chinese, Scandinavian, and Russian traditional medicine as a physical restorative, and it remains a popular remedy for fatigue. It is also a brain-boosting nootropic believed to improve memory and cognition.
Rhodiola Rosea is a high-altitude herb native to the Arctic areas of Europe and Asia.
Decreases symptoms of fatigue
Increases neuromotor fitness
Enhances essential neurotransmitter output
