BrainPill™ is the new natural smart pill everyone is talking about. But what exactly are its key ingredients that seem to enhance people’s memory and all the “other goodies it promises”? This article looks at the key ingredients of BrainPill™.
Should BrainPill™ Be Trusted?
Well, I am not a qualified medical practitioner. Also, throughout this site, we strongly recommend that any doubts you have about health products should always be discussed with your doctor or a qualified medical professional. Nevertheless, empirical research shows that health products made from natural ingredients come with very little or no negative side effects. Plus, there are credible medical endorsements too. Earlier I coined the strange phrase “other goodies it promises” to describe some of the benefits offered by BrainPill™. The “other goodies it promises” are higher intelligence and the ability to learn new skills. The reasoning here, based on results from medical studies, is the better your memory; the better your brain function. So logic dictates that the ingredients of BrainPill™ need to have natural cognitive boosters to be a credible brain supplement.
I will now look at BrainPill™’s key ingredients with their “naturalness” and “cognitive boosting” properties in mind.
Under the Hood of BrainPill™
Key ingredients of this supplement are as follows:
- Cognizine: This is a water-soluble compound that occurs naturally in all your body cells. It plays a major role in brain function and shows improved concentration, focus and accuracy. You may also perform better and faster on cognitive tests.
- Synapsa: This is a standardized extract of Bacopa Monnieiri – nootropic herbs. Studies of Synapsa link it to superior working memory and faster visual processing. Results from a study done in 1996 found it reduced time to learn new skills by almost 50%.
- Huperzine A: This is a native Indian plant. It is understood to reduce failure of a neurotransmitter called Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), which increases alertness and plays a key role in memory and transmission of chemical messages between cells.
- Vinpocetine: It is an extract of the Periwinkle plant and well-recognized for its memory-boosting potential. Studies suggest that Vinpocetine helps vascular circulation in the brain, increases production of ATP and improves the brain’s use of oxygen and glucose.
- Ginkgo Biloba: This is an ancient Chinese herb that has a lengthy history in achieving memory-boosting effects. Modern studies link Ginkgo Biloba to significant improvements in short-term memory, mental performance and social functioning.
- Vitamin B12: The British journal, Neurology, published results from a study that found a lack of Vitamin B12 increases the risk of brain deterioration by 600% compared to people with regular consumption. Additional studies of Vitamin B12 link it to higher cognition, performance and both episodic and semantic memory.
- DHA Complex: DHA is an Omega-3 Fatty acid. Omega-3 is long regarded to have brain-boosting benefits associated with them, DHA works with other Omega-3s to fluidize proteins, which is essential to help the brain create and retain its memory.
- Phosphatidylserine (PS): This is another useful Omega-3 fatty acids found in BrainPill™. It works with DHA to perform many essential brain functions and is linked to improved concentration, mood and short-term memory. PS is known to help function of neurotransmitters, enhance glucose absorption and simply revitalises an ageing brain.
- Tyrosine: This Amino Acid boosts Dopamine. Dopamine is a pleasure chemical that helps you focus. It is also a precursor the brain chemicals norepinephrine and adrenaline, both of which help mood, sex drive and energy levels. Tyrosine may help you stay calm under pressure too, and may even help you sleep better if you feel in the dumps.
- Theanine: Another amino acid, typically found in green tea, studies suggest that theanine improves learning and memory. Theanine may have a neuroprotective effect on the brain and appears to stimulate the same brain waves that are activated when you meditate.
- Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5): Pantothenic acid is an essential nutrient that supports an important neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine. The latter is otherwise known as “the memory chemical” because of the role it plays in brain function.
- Folic Acid (Vitamin B9): Your body uses folic acid to help make DNA and RNA and works with vitamin B12 to make red blood cells and use iron throughout the body. It’s nothing short of poetry for your brain – evidence suggests B vitamins like Folic Acid may have slower cognitive decline than other folks. That is why it is a key ingredient of BrainPill™!
No one supplement can ever be a health-panacea. If you are ever told this then be very concerned. Remember too, always discuss diets, nutrition and supplements with your doctor or other qualified medical professionals. Nevertheless, I can tell you with great certainty that good diets and regular exercises (mental and physical) should always be at the core of all your health goals. Supplements very much put the icing on your “wellness-cake” in a manner of speaking. In other words, supplements alone will not work.
The ingredients of BrainPill™, as supported by studies and medical doctor endorsements, do seem to make it a very credible brain-boosting supplement. Moreover, at the time of writing, there are no known negative side-effects taking this supplement.
