Brain Booster

Remember, Remember

You may recall an early 2018 article titled “In with the Nootropics.” Here, we learned that nootropics are a class of cognition-enhancing supplements used to boost concentration and improve memory. Typically referred to as “smart drugs,” and based off of the Greek words “nous” and “trepein,” which translates loosely to “mind bender,” these supplements are showing optimal benefits for the brain (cosmicnovo). Many nootropics can boost memory, creativity, motivation, and alertness (healthline). From this article we also learned that the brain health supplement market is expected to reach $11.6 billion by 2024. Not only is this true… it’s something YOUR brand can be a part of! If you haven’t already added nootropics to your line, we are here with five of the best supplements to get ideas rolling for your next product!

Fast Five

Phosphatidylserine

Studies have shown that taking 100 mg of phosphatidylserine three times per day has the ability to help reduce age-related decline in brain function. Separately, people who take phosphatidylserine supplements of up to 400 mg per day have shown improved memory and thinking skills (healthline).

Fish Oils

These supplements are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have a positive impact on brain health. Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, helps maintain brain structure and function. It accounts for approximately 25% of the total fat and 90% of the omega-3 fat found in brain cells. Eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, can protect against damage with its anti-inflammatory action. While eating two portions of oily fish per week is highly recommended, supplements can provide additional support and protection against deterioration in brain health.

Bacopa Monnieri

Known to Ayurvedic medicine, bacopa monnieri has been shown to increase thinking skills and memory both generally in healthy people and in the elderly enduring a decline in brain function. Of course, there are side effects and it does take time to show effects. That is why it is highly recommended to always contact a licensed physician before taking this or any dietary supplement.

SAMe

S-Adenosyl Methionine, SAMe, occurs naturally in the body, making and breaking down important compounds such as proteins, hormones, and fats. SAMe supplements provide some hope for people with depression. Research has shown that adding SAMe to an antidepressant prescription of people who had not previously responded to therapy did in fact improve chances of remission by about 14%.

Acetyl-L-Cartinine

Another naturally occurring substance in the body, acetyl-l-carnitine plays a considerable role in metabolism, directly affecting energy production. People have reported experiencing improved memory, alertness, and hindered age-related memory loss. Take note: there is no research pointing to its positive effects in healthy people who are not already enduring loss of brain function. That said, acetyl-l-carnitine suggests agency for treating loss of brain function in elderly people and those with mental disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
