10g of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate Salts & 2g of MCT Oil Powder
Starting off with "keto" in Cogni Keto, 10g of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) salts are utilized to provide the brain with fuel. There is growing clinical evidence that BHB Salts act as a fantastic fuel source for the brain. Not only can these exogenous ketones be a fuel source, but there is also promising data emerging that BHB Salts supplemented can help improve the conditions of symptoms of those with Alzheimer's and epilepsy. While the data is young, this is a very promising ingredient for overall brain health.
Medium Chain Triglycerides, or MCT's, are fast digesting fatty acids that get used by the liver for energy. What makes MCT's great for a cognitive enhancement supplement is their ability to give the body an energy boost. This sense of alertness from an increase in energy is especially beneficial in the afternoon hours.
There is also promising studies that show MCT’s coupled with BHB Salts, in humans, helps improve cognitive performance and memory recall. It’s this brain boosting synergy between BHB Salts & MCT Oil Powder that sets up CogniKeto to offer optimal brain health. MCT’s have also been researched for treating childhood epilepsy, mainly due to it’s ability to eventually convert to additional ketones for the brain to use as fuel.
It’s this ketone enhancing synergy that makes Medium Chain Triglycerides a very important combination with Beta-Hydroxybutyrate salts. They enhance one another’s effects on the brain, thus making an incredibly synergistic “base” for CogniKeto for the other ingredients to aid in enhancing focus, memory recall, and productivity.
1,200mg of Alpha GPC
Alpha GPC is a cholinergic ingredient designed to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain. An increase in Acetylcholine has been shown to significantly improve memory recall and cognitive focus. The increase in cognitive focus from Alpha GPC is perfect for those who need to dial-in and accomplish a specific task.
One study with Alpha GPC showed an increase in attention and reaction time when supplemented prior to an acute stress test. Alpha GPC also is more potent at increasing Acetylcholine levels than CDP-Choline. When keeping the end amount of choline the same, Alpha-GPC requires 46% the dose of CDP-choline. To further show Alpha GPC’s superiority, the same doses of both ingredients result in the group given Alpha-GPC experiencing a greater increase in choline.
Coupled with the Nerve Growth Factor effects of Lion’s Mane Extract & the supercharging brain boosting effects of BHB Salts & Medium Chain Triglycerides, the increase in acetylcholine levels caused by Alpha-GPC creates a synergy that provides never-before-seen focus. The brain becomes much more effective at using these elevated acetylcholine due to an increase in efficiency.
100mg of Lion's Mane Extract 10:1
Lion's Mane Mushroom, also known as Yamabushitake or Hericium erinaceus, is becoming an incredibly popular mushroom due to evidence showing its ability to increase Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and being a promising nootropic compound. When you increase NGF, you increase the rate at which the brains recycles old, damaged neurons and creates new neurons.
To further tout the benefits of Lion’s Mane, one study using Lion’s Mane (in capsule form) showed vast improvements of dementia in persons suffering from general cognitive decline. Lion’s Mane increased cognition relative to the placebo group, and even more promising, the longer Lion’s Mane was taken, the greater the benefits were over time! This makes sense, as the increase in Nerve Growth Factor will help the development of additional neurons, thus, improving cognitive ability as time goes on.
When you combine the neuroprotective effects of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate and the Nerve Growth Factor enhancing benefits of Lion’s Mane, you create a state of optimal brain health. A good analogy for this would be when trying to build lean muscle mass. When building muscle, the main goal is to limit protein breakdown and to increase protein synthesis. A “net-positive” balance would yield more muscle growth.
Similar to our muscle building example, Beta-Hydroxybutyrate salts help limit brain neuron decreases via its neuroprotective properties, and Lion’s Mane Extract increases our neuron total via Nerve Growth Factor increases. This “net-positive” in neuron amount and health yields cognitive enhancing benefits that continue to multiply over time with continued use!
100mg of Rhodiola Rosea
Rhodiola rosea is an adaptogenic herb that helps reduce anxiety and create better mental alertness, and also has some physical benefits as well. It's adaptogenic properties make it a great choice for those under stress from their job or daily life, since it allows the body to better cope & adjust to those stressors. It’s anxiolytic effects are great for those who may undergo minor general anxiety, from things such as feeling overwhelmed.
Rhodiola has been shown to help improve memory, be neuroprotective to the brain, and improve symptoms of cognitive fatigue. The cognitive fatigue reducing aspects are why it was included in CogniKeto. As we perform mentally demanding task after mentally demanding task, it’s no secret you begin to feel “run-down.” Rhodiola helps stave off this feeling, and the issues that come with it, by improving your ability to keep your attention on a task, reduce processing errors from being mentally tired, and increase overall general well-being.
Many supplement goers also take Rhodiola when on "stim breaks," as it helps the adrenals glands return to normalcy faster and also can provide energy when needed. Rhodiola is a perfect addition to a supplement like CogniKeto since it provides a source of natural energy and it helps keep anxiety and stress levels even - necessary for when you need to buckle down and focus to get the important tasks in your busy day done!
