Peak performance in the flow state

Brain waves are produced from neurons communicating with each other through electrical pulses. These waves change depending on thought, emotion or behavior. Electrical pulses create a rhythm that resonates at a certain frequency, which can be measured in Hertz. Research has discovered that peak performance occurs at the Alpha-Theta borderline (8 Hertz) also known as Flow State.

Based on Clinical Research
Energy

A randomized double-blind cognitive performance study was conducted examining the effects of caffeine with and without L-Theanine. The L-Theanine and caffeine combination improved both speed and accuracy of performance of the attention-switching task at 60 min, and reduced susceptibility to distracting information in the memory task at both 60 min and 90 min. Flow contains a blend of L-Theanine and extended release caffeine to replicate these results.

Endurance

Rhodiola rosea was given twice daily at 200mg 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.

Ingredients with Purpose
Vinpocetine (6mg)

A unique supplement reported to enhance cerebral blood circulation, increase oxygen absorption to the brain, and act as an antioxidant.

Source

Derived from the Periwinkle plant (Vinca Minor), which is native to central and southern Europe.

Potential Benefits

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.

Side effects:

Vinpocetine is extremely well-tolerated and no significant adverse effects have been reported.

L-Theanine (50mg)

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.

Source

L-theanine is almost exclusively found in tea leaves and can be naturally found in green, black or oolong tea.

Benefits

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.

Side effects:

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.

Alpha-GPC 99%(65mg)

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.

Source

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.

Benefits

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.

Side effects:

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.

Extended Release Caffeine (84mg)

The most widely consumed central nervous stimulant. Typically consumed through caffeinated beverages to relieve drowsiness and to improve performance.

Source

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.

Benefits

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 caffeine blocks the action of adenosine, replacing it on the brain’s receptor. This consequently prevents the drowsiness that is induced by adenosine.

Side effects:

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.

Rhodiola rosea extract 3% Rosavins (100mg)

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.

Source

Rhodiola rosea is a high-altitude herb native to the Arctic areas of Europe and Asia.

Benefits

Decreases symptoms of fatigue

Increases neuromotor fitness

Enhances essential neurotransmitter output

How it works

Rhodiola’s nootropic effects start within 30 minutes and can last for up to six hours. It suppresses the production and release of cortisol, a hormone closely related with stress. Rhodiola also increases the availability of epinephrine and norepinephrine, both of which are neurotransmitters associated with drive and energy. Increased levels of these neurotransmitters and improves neuronal communication and positively impacts mood, reduces fatigue perception, and enhances cognitive abilities. Rhodiola is also believed to expedite the intra-brain movement of monoamines and other neurochemical messenger substances, improving processing and reaction time.

Side effects:

Side effects are generally uncommon and mild. The risk of drug interactions is minimal. Most frequent side effects occur at high doses and are agitation, anxiety, and occasional headache.
