Where The Science Hits The Road
Below is a summary for each of our 14 potent, natural, vegetarian, and safe ingredients. Complete with list of specific benefits, and we include several relevant clinical studies for each ingredient.
Boosts cognition, neural processing, dopamine production, and taken long-term will repair neural injury. Discussion: Pterostilbene is a potent stilbene (like resveratrol but with quadruple the bioavailability) that's fully able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Along with its key benefits, this little-known nootropic increases hippocampus neurogenesis (huge benefit!) and modulates the receptor kinase pathway that is central in learning and memory process. (Research Sources: Nutritional Neuroscience 2004 Oct-Dec;7(5-6):309-16 ― Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry 2008 Nov 26;56(22):10544-51 ― The Journal of Neuroscience August 13, 2003 • 23(19):7311–7316 • 7311 ― Neurochem Int 2015 Oct; 89:227-33. doi: 10.1016)
Bacosides A & B
Increases speed of information processing, enhances thinking performance, reduces anxiety, and improves memory. Discussion: You'll be hard pressed to find a better all-around team of nootropics than the bacosides, which turbocharge the communicative impulses between neurons by fortifying key proteins that assist in rapid memory recall. For example, just one of many studies on humans showed better attention, better recall of facts and words, better focus and less stress. And a big bonus if you take it daily: it's proven to repair damaged neurons over several months of consistent usage.

Elevates cAMP, boosts neural signaling,
increases acetylcholine levels. (BONUS: Burns body fat). Discussion: This creativity booster comes from the plant, Coleus forskohlii, and has a novel property not found in any other natural supplement: it boosts Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate (cAMP), an important neural potentiator for synaptic communication and growth. Neural plasticity and memory both benefit from increased cAMP, via stronger and faster neural signaling. Turns out that elevated cAMP levels also help burn body fat, but this is not why we include it.

NOTE: Forskolin and Luteolin work together to produce a highly synergic pharmacological-like benefit that's only recently been discovered.
Inhibits PDE-4, potentially reduces neural inflammation, synergistic w/ Forskolin. Discussion: Luteolin is a unique brain hacking nootropic and really only serves one very crucial purpose: It inhibits phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4), an enzyme in the brain that breaks down cAMP. But, we want cAMP to be as high as possible (see Forskolin above)! Benefits include elevated memory, faster learning, and Spock-like logic and reasoning. Luteolin comes from artichoke extract, and one of many studies shows it “may [also] be useful for mitigating neural inflammation”. (Research Sources: Eur J Pharmacol 2010 Feb 10;627(1-3):269-75 ― European Journal of Pharmacology 627 (1–3): 269–275 ― PLoS One 2012; 7(8): e43304 ― Neurotoxicology 2016 Jul;55:48-57)
Amps up alertness, aids memory, attention span, reaction time, and problem-solving skills. Discussion: Theobromine works as a phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitor to increase intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). cAMP activates the cAMP-response element-binding protein (CREB), which is involved in a large variety of brain processes, including the induction of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF supports cell survival and neuronal functions, including learning and memory. Theobromine's is also an adenosine receptor antagonist, positively boosting the effects of six specialized neurotransmitters. Finally. it also increases brain performance through blood flow improvement, releasing nitric oxide within blood vessels. (Research Sources: Br J Clin Pharmacol 2013 Mar; 75(3): 716–727 ― J Clin Psychopharmacol 2013 Aug;33(4):499-506 ― Front Pharmacol 2015; 6: 30 ― J Nutr Biochem 2017 Jan;39:110-116)
Four critical brain hacks: Learning, memory, attention and comprehension. Discussion: Hup-A, as it's often called, is a Chinese discovery that strongly inhibits acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that prevents one of the brain's most potent neuro-signaling molecules, acetylcholine, from doing its job. Hup-A has a secondary key benefit of increasing cognitive neuroplasticity, which promotes long-term memory retention of facts and knowledge. Hup-A is truly a powerful nootropic. (Research Sources: Am J Chin Med 2016;44(8):1525-1541 ― Chemico-Biological Interactions 2008 Sep 25;175(1-3):387-95 ― Nature Structural Biology 1997 Jan;4(1):57-63 ― Acta Pharmacologica Sinica 1999; (7): 601—603)
Cognitive enhancer, and boosts two potent nerve growth factors. Discussion: A mood elevating mushroom extract with nootropic and health benefits, and rarely used in other brain supplements because it's mostly unknown in the Western world. Some of the potent components of yamabushitake include Orcinol derivatives, Hericenones, and Erinacines. As a bonus, yamabushitake will improve your cholesterol profile and it's been shown to have anti-aging benefits by reducing lipofuscin content within aging cells, keeping them alive significantly longer. (Research Sources: Int J Biol Macromol 2017 Apr;97:228 237― Pharmacol Biochem Behav 2015 Sep;136:7-12―Int J Mol Sci 2016 Nov; 17(11): 1810―Biol Pharm Bull 2008 Sep;31(9):1727-32―Int J Biol Macromol 2017 Apr;97:228-237)
Amps up brain energy, and enhances neurotransmitters for faster cognitive processing. Discussion: Another creativity booster, CDP Choline works by doing two interesting things:  it breaks down into uridine, which supplies neurons with a key growth and repair building block, and  it super boosts brain ATP, a key energy source that powers thinking performance. The choline component also builds the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in cognition, memory, and learning. Bonus: Uridine is also a long-term neuroprotective nootropic. (Research Sources: Clin Interv Aging 2015 Sep 3;10:1421-9 ― Methods Find Exp Clin Pharmacol 2006 Sep;28 Suppl B:1-56 ― Psychiatr Clin North Am 2013 Mar; 36 (1):25-36 ― Food and Nutrition Sciences Vol. 3 No. 6, 2012, pp. 769-773)
Energizes brain mitochondria, boosts synaptic plasticity. Discussion: This nootropic works hand-in-glove with CDP Choline to create the acetylcholine neurotransmitter. But more importantly, Acetyl-L-Carnitine can uniquely cross the blood-brain barrier to assist in delivering fatty acids to the brain's power stations (mitochondria). (Research Sources: Mechanics of Aging Development 2012 Feb-Mar; 133(0): 99–106 ― Dev Neurosci 2016; 38(5):384-396 ― Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences 2004 Nov; 1033:30 41 ― Biochemistry 5th edition New York: W H Freeman; 2002)
(First time ever in a brain supplement) ― Increases reaction time, boosts creative problem solving and faster data recall. Discussion: Betalains are nitrogen containing pigments found in a variety of foods, especially beets, that significantly improve cerebral blood flow, giving an across-the-board higher order thinking upgrade ― a true brain hacking nootropic. For example, two recent human studies examined the influence of dietary nitrate on cerebral blood flow. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a substantial and preferential increase in frontal cortex perfusion, a region of the brain responsible for essential cognitive processes such as executive function, working memory and task-switching.(Research Sources: Physiol Behav 2015 Oct 1;149:149-58 ― Nutrients 2015 Apr; 7(4): 2801–2822 ― Nitric Oxide 2014;40:67–74 ― Cardiol. Res Pract. 2013:435–629 ― Nitric Oxide 2011; 24:34–42. doi: 10.1016)
Amped-up alpha waves, relieves anxiety/stress (zero drowsiness), increased reaction time (when combined with caffeine). Discussion: Theanine is a novel nootropic with unique benefits, key among them is that it's a potent relaxing agent yet without drowsiness, helping you stay focused and in the zone. It does this be affecting alpha brain waves, which are associated with stress relief. A 2017 study concluded: "Theanine and caffeine combined were found to particularly improve performance in attention-switching tasks and alertness." (Caffeine is included in GodMode, see below.) (Research Sources: Curr Pharm Des 2017 Jan 5 ― J Med Food 2011 Apr; 14(4):334-43 ― Life Sciences 2007 Sep 29;81 (16):1247-55 ― Korean Journal of Nutrition 2003 Nov;36(9):918-923 ― Journal of Herbal Pharmacotherapy Volume 6, Issue 2, 200)
Vigilance booster, improves reaction time and logical reasoning. Discussion: Is caffeine really a nootropic? Yes! And who doesn't want to be more vigilant! At least 15 studies have found cognitive benefits from taking caffeine, by inhibiting the binding of both adenosine and benzodiazepine receptor ligands to brain membranes―as these neurotransmitters are known to slow down brain activity, therefore caffeine's blockade of these receptor ligands lessens this effect. Caffeine also causes positive changes to many key neurotransmitters, like dopamine, glutamate, serotonin, noradrenaline and acetylcholine. (Research Sources: J Clin Psychopharacol 2013 Aug; 33(4):499-506 ― Sci Rep 2017 Feb 15;7:42726 ― Pharmacol Rev 1999 Mar;51(1):83-133 ― Nutrition Bulletin 33 (1):15 - 25 · February 2008)
Long-term brain health. Discussion: Most people could use more lithium in their diet, which typically came from drinking unfiltered running water from creeks or springs―it doesn't come from water bottles or sodas! Lithium is neuro-protective when taken regularly, and is responsible for removing certain toxicities from the brain, allowing the brain to function at peak performance. The amount contained in GodMode is very small, but it's enough to do the job. (Research Sources: Lancet 2013 May 11; 381 (9878): 10.1016/S0140-6736(13)60857-0 ― Int J Neuropsychopharmacol 2003 Sep;6(3):225-31 ― Zhong Nan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban. 2011 Jun; 36(6): 461–476 ― Neurosci Biobehav Rev. 2007;31(6): 920–931)
Improves memory, decreases anxiety, elevates mood. Discussion: Piperine is a potent monoamine oxidase inhibitor, benefitting the neuroenhancers norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin. Just as important, it inhibits two liver enzymes (CYP3A4 & P-glycoprotein) that break down other nootropic ingredients in GodMode, therefore causing them to remain both active and potent for a longer time. The big upside is that you get a lot more bang for your buck from this advanced nootropic stack.
