Complete Balanced Nootropic

The idea behind Alpha BRAIN was to create a fully-balanced nootropic. Our Alpha GPC and Huperzia Serrata contain nutrients that help your body turn up acetylcholine levels full throttle, while other ingredients assist in elevating neurological components vital to remaining calm, focused, and mentally driven. Our Vinpocetine can help the body deliver oxygen and nutrients to the brain, and the combination of neuro-specific antioxidants, led by our proprietary AC-11®, assists your system in clearing away mental fog and free radicals. The result for our thousands of satisfied customers is an extraordinary combination of lucid dreams, mental drive, focus, and mental acuity.✝

Actualizing your Alpha BRAIN

What is it that separates the great minds from the good minds? Raw intelligence is a factor, but what else? Is it the ability to quickly access information? Is it the ability to efficiently store learned information? Is it the ability to create connections between seemingly unrelated events? Is it the ability to stay focused and determined? The knack for staying calm in tense situations and driven towards your goals? If that is what makes a great mind, then Alpha BRAIN is the ideal brain food. Containing nutrients designed to help the body elevate levels of major neurotransmitters, Alpha BRAIN can help you to actualize your mind's true potential.✝

“It seems to fire up your brain at a higher RPM level... I feel like it helps me form sentences better.”

Joe Rogan - Philosopher/Comic

Create through the Dream State

A study done on acetylcholine boosting drugs revealed an interesting side effect: vivid, often lucid dreams. This led researchers to study the mechanism further, and what they found was something that sleep experts had known all along: acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating REM sleep. The more acetylcholine available, the more persistent and broad the REM cycles became for the subjects studied. Alpha BRAIN is designed to be one of the most potent acetylcholine-enhancing nutrient based supplements available, and the results on the dream state go beyond expectations. Where will you travel? What will you create? It's all up to you.✝

“Alpha BRAIN definitely helped me. Awesome, awesome lucid dreams. Onnit has my seal of approval.”

Alpha BRAIN, the flagship cognitive enhancing supplement from Onnit Labs, contains a serving of nine natural, well-researched compounds to create an effective and balanced nootropic. Alpha BRAIN aims to elevate focus and mental clarity to help the brain achieve improved cognitive functioning. The ingredients in Alpha BRAIN work on three aspects of enhanced cognition: elevating levels of endogenous neurotransmitters, providing anti-stress compounds, and promoting long-term neuro-protection.

Boosting Neurotransmitters

The human brain is composed of over 10 billion communicating cells, known as neurons, that make over 60 trillion synaptic connections [source]. Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that embody the brain's currency of communication. The highly coordinated processes of production and release of these neurotransmitters determine the relative strength or weakness between neighboring neurons. These connections give rise to complex neural circuits, which underlie the apparent phenomena of human cognition.

It is well known that adequate functioning of neurotransmitter synthesis and release is essential to maintain a healthy cognitive state [source]. Self-perceived states, such as attention, mood, focus, and awareness, are highly dependent on the relative levels of neurotransmitter production. Alpha BRAIN aims to elevate the levels of neurological production of the neurotransmitters by providing an abundance of biological neurotransmitter precursors. Specifically, Huperzia Serrata and aGPC are targeted at increasing acetylcholine function, an essential component for learning and memory [source, source]. L-theanine, a compound isolated from green tea, has been shown to mimic the important inhibitory effects of GABA neurotransmission, creating a calm and focused mental state [source]. L-tyrosine is a key intermediary in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, with documented mood elevating properties [source]. Conveniently combined together in the Alpha BRAIN formula, these unique nutrients help provide a strong foundation for the body to enhance endogenous production and maintenance of key neurotransmitters.

Mitigating Stress

Prolonged exposure to environmental stress results in a physiological response that can be harmful to overall health and neurological function. Alpha BRAIN includes a combination of natural anti-stress compounds that have been shown to buffer the brain from stress and provide an overall calming effect. Under the license from Optigenex, Alpha BRAIN is the only nootropic to include AC-11®, a potent extract from Uncaria tomentosa, a plant found in the Amazon rainforest that has been used for hundreds of years as an alimentary herb. AC-11® has independently been proven to promote DNA repair following environmental stress and has documented cognitive benefits [source]. Alpha BRAIN also includes highly concentrated oat straw (Avena sativa), an alleviator of neurological stress and exhaustion, which has been shown to have a positive impact on cognitive performance in healthy subjects [source]. Lastly, Alpha BRAIN contains phosphatidylserine, a phospholipid cell component known to possess ergogenic properties and promote stress tolerance in high performance athletes [source]. Alpha BRAIN aims to decrease our levels of endogenous stress while providing the tools to handle demanding situations, allowing the mind to remain clear and focused.

Targeting Neurological Antioxidants

Oxidative stress, also known as free radical damage, has been implicated in a number of neurological challenges and age-related conditions [source]. Alpha BRAIN includes the highest quality anti-oxidative compounds that have been shown to be beneficial to cognitive function. Pterostilbene, a recently discovered compound isolated from blueberries, has been shown to provide neuroprotection against free radicals [source]. Bacopa Monnieri has been used for centuries in the traditional Ayurvedic medical system of India to improve memory and longevity, possessing both antioxidant and aptogenic properties [source]. Research on the use of Bacopa has shown significant memory improvements and protection again the deposit of harmful neurotoxic molecules [source]. Finally, the inclusion of vinpocetine, a semi-synthetic derivative of the periwinkle plant, promotes blood flow to the brain and possesses potent anti-oxidant properties [source]. These three potent antioxidants are essential to maintaining a healthy, functional nervous system.

Alpha BRAIN Delivers

The Alpha BRAIN formula contains highly effective ingredients that are either cutting edge or have historical use. This combination aims to potentiate the best cognitive performance while maintaining mental clarity and providing long-term neurological health benefits. Data will be published in February from our first pilot study. Full clinical study is ongoing.

Ingredients

Vitamin B6

Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) is one of the body's busiest vitamins, involved in an estimated 101 chemical reactions. One of its primary tasks is to aid in the manufacturing of amino acids and neurotransmitters. Some of these neurotransmitters are serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine and GABA.

Alpha GPC (L-alphaglycerylphosphorylcholine)

Derived originally from lecithin, Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline is a phospholipid metabolite found concentrated in neuronal membranes. Unlike less expensive forms of choline such as choline bitrartate, Alpha GPC has been shown to be well absorbed, easily crossing the blood-brain barrier. Once delivered, it helps support brain function and learning processes by directly increasing the synthesis and secretion of acetylcholine. Heightened acetylcholine has been linked to memory, focus, mental drive, and REM sleep states. For more information click here.

Huperzia Serrata (.5% Huperzine A)

An extract from the plant commonly known as northern firmoss (Huperzia serrata), Huperzine A is a naturally derived acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Acetylcholinesterase (AchE) is responsible for the breakdown of Acetylcholine, and so by inhibiting AchE, more acetylcholine is made available to the brain. Efficacy has been shown in a range of 200-400 mcg daily, and safety has been demonstrated in trials up to 5 weeks and 600 mcg daily.✝ For more information click here

Vinpocetine

A semi-synthetic compound derived originally from the periwinkle plant, vinpocetine helps the body deliver oxygen to the brain by increasing circulation and blood flow.✝

AC-11®

AC-11®, the proprietary compound licensed under agreement from Optigenex Inc, is derived from Uncaria tomentosa, a plant indigenous to the South American rainforest. In a series of peer reviewed scientific and clinical studies conducted by third party laboratories and university medical centers, AC-11® has been shown to help the body's natural ability to repair DNA.

Although the exact mechanisms of action are being further investigated, scientists believe that when the body is subjected to stress affecting the integrity of DNA, AC-11® helps activate enzymes that are instrumental in the repair process. This goes beyond other nutritional supplements by protecting the body from damage to its fundamental building blocks: The DNA itself.✝

Optigenex Inc is the exclusive patent holder for AC-11®. US patent numbers: 6039949, 6238675 B1, 6361805 B2

Bacopa (50% Bacosides)

Bacopa Monnieri is an Ayurvedic herb found in the marshlands of India, believed to help the body to enhance clear thinking. Ayurvedic masters have touted its cognitive enhancing effects for centuries, as Bacopa has been served to rajas and peasants alike. Clinical investigations show that it has strong antioxidant properties and may protect mental function in certain adults, while animal models have provided evidence that Bacopa improves learning skills. Bacosides, the active compounds in Bacopa, play a protective role in the synaptic functions of the nerves in the hippocampus, the seat of memory. Inside the hippocampus, nerve impulses are transmitted across the synapses and Bacopa is believed to help the body prevent the degeneration that impairs cognition.

Pterostilbene

One of the hottest extracts in the field of nootropics, pterostilbene is quickly surpassing its cousin resveratrol in popularity. A natural antioxidant abundant in blueberries, this particular antioxidant aids in the elimination of free radicals, which are believed to contribute to "mental fog."

L-Tyrosine

L-tyrosine is the amino acid precursor utilized by the body for the production of L-dopa. With an impeccable safety profile and a simple mechanism of action, L-tyrosine has been a highly sought after amino acid for those looking to boost brain function. ✝

L-Theanine

L-theanine is one of the major reasons why green tea is much smoother than any other caffeinated beverage. Closely related to the GABA mechanism and easily absorbed by the body, L-theanine can help the body provide that calm sense of balance, while not interfering with the stimulating buzz of activated neurotransmitters.✝

Oat Straw (20:1)

Oat straw is one of nature's anti-stress nutrients and has been recommended for of a wide range of temporary nervous conditions. It has also been shown to help with exhaustion related neurological pains and is commonly given as a natural alternative to help combat challenges with attention span. Our formulation is extremely powerful, with a 20:1 concentration, and assists in making Alpha BRAIN a balanced nootropic.✝

Phosphatidylserine

Phosphadylserine (PS) is an essential lipid compound highly abundant within brain cell membranes. Isolated from soy beans, PS supplements can help enhance mental and physical performance by mitigating stress and boosting exercise capacity. PS is a valuable supplement for improving performance on the athletic field or on any tasks that require cognitive demand. ✝ To learn more, click here.
