What's in it?
Natural Stacks formulas contain premium ingredients which are carefully selected solely on the basis of quality and purity by seeking out the most bioavailable forms of each ingredient, and avoid the cheap synthetic forms used by the majority of supplement companies.
Premium Artichoke Extract
Artichoke extract contains Luteolin, a safe natural inhibitor of PDE4. PDE4 inhibitors have been shown to have significant nootropic effects including increased cognition, improved long term memory, increased wakefulness, and neuroprotection.
Forskolin derived from Coleus Forskohlii activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase which increases intracellular levels of cAMP. The result is an overall improvement of cognitive function, especially memory formation and retention of new information.
ALCAR is an acetylated form of the amino acid L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is present in many foods but can also be synthesized in the liver. When cAMP is increased in neurons by forskolin, studies have shown that levels of acetylcholinesterase are also increased. We added ALCAR to the stack to help mitigate the effects of increased acetylcholinesterase on short-term memory and energy.
Vitamin B6 is required for the biosynthesis of several neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. CILTEP features the metabolically active form of Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) to ensure optimal cognitive function.
L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid found in some foods that the brain uses to make dopamine. This amino acid acts as fuel to support efficient dopamine metabolism for maximum motivation and a positive mood.
