Lion’s Mane Mushroom (Hericium Erinaceus) is a shaggy tooth fungus favoured by the Yamabushi ascetic monks in Japan as a tool to increase focus during extended periods of meditation.* The Lion’s Mane extract in Mind Flora is standardized to at least 25% Beta-D-Glucan Polysaccharides, the bioactive compounds known to provide immunomodulating properties that promote gut health, fight inflammation and support the normal function of the immune system.*
Bacopa Monnieri is an ancient adaptogenic herb used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to promote intellect and improve memory. Known in Ayurveda as Brahmi, a word derived from Lord Brahma, the creator god in Hinduism, Bacopa Monnieri can be translated from Sanskrit to mean “expansion of consciousness”. Bacopa Monnieri works by promoting brain chemicals like acetylcholine, GABA and serotonin which support memory, mood and clear cognitive processing.* The Bacopa in Mind Flora is standardized to at least 45% bacosides, the powerful antioxidants that may prevent oxidative stress and free radical destruction, protecting the brain from age-related cognitive decline. Since Bacopa requires a loading phase, take daily for at least 12-weeks for best results.*
Mind Flora contains a plant-based and highly bioavailable source of Alpha-GPC derived from sunflower lecithin. It is the best natural choline source available and functions as a precursor to acetylcholine, one of the brain’s primary neurotransmitters essential to learning, memory, attention and alertness.* Acetylcholine plays a critical role in maintaining neuroplasticity, your brain’s ability to reorganize and form new neural pathways, as you age. Once Alpha-GPC is converted to acetylcholine, it functions like a highlighter, mapping out which neurons require connections and setting the stage for learning and memory consolidation during sleep.*
Guarana (Paullinia cupana) is a climbing plant deeply rooted in Amazonian indigenious culture and revered for its ability to provide a natural boost of clean energy and focus without the jittery effects or crash of coffee. The focal point of the Sateré Mawé origin story, Guarana is roughly translated to mean, “fruit like eyes of the people” and is believed to enhance cognitive function and learning.* It contains an amino acid profile similar to green tea and is packed full of antioxidants that may help prevent free radical damage in the body.* The Guarana extract in Mind Flora is standardized to 22% caffeine, which is less than a small cup of coffee, to help stimulate acetylcholine production and set the stage for learning and neural plasticity.*
L-Theanine is a naturally occuring amino acid that stimulates alpha brainwaves, promoting a calm and focused state, similar to that experienced during meditation or creative flow.* Found in green tea and some mushroom species, L-Theanine can help to negate the jittery effects of caffeine. It has been used to regulate stress, encouraging a sense of calm and may increase the expression of Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), protecting the brain against age-related cognitive decline.* Unbeknownst to tea drinkers at the time, l-theanine is believed to be the reason why Zen Budhists would use green tea as a tool to enhance focus during meditation.
Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that supports healthy nervous system function, promotes mental energy, red blood cell formation and may help protect the brain as you age.* Your body requires Vitamin B12 for energy production and to enhance cellular metabolic function. The Vitamin B12 in Mind Flora is in the form of methylcobalamin, a highly bioavailable compound, easily absorbed by the body.*
