My Latest Favorite: Brain Gear

In a world of fitness gear, it’s nice to have a little brain gear I love this product, it’s the first thing I drink when I wake up in the morning. 

BrainGear is a brain performance formula developed by top neurologists that provides immediate focus, clarity, and concentration while optimizing your brain function and performance over time.

You can find all ingredients here - but there are a few I would like to highlight: 

 

L-Theanine

L-theanine is a unique amino acid that has shown to promote relaxation without causing drowsiness. L-theanine is found in green tea and crosses the blood-brain barrier, supports healthy neurotransmitter levels and inhibits the stimulatory properties of caffeine, therefore counterbalancing any negative caffeine effects. It also promotes calm, balanced mental health and emotional well-being, helping manage stress and tension while supporting sleep quality and mental acuity.

 

Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl L-Carnitine is a more bioavailable form of the amino acid L-Carnitine and is involved in many metabolic functions including the promotion of cellular energy production. As an antioxidant, acetyl L-carnitine helps maintain healthy neurological function by delivering antioxidant protection throughout the entire nervous system. Praised for its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, Acetyl L-Carnitine supports cognitive health and optimal brain function, in turn enhancing alertness, concentration, and mental focus.

 

Choline

Choline is an essential component of all cell membranes. Choline is a precursor to acetylcholine, a stimulatory neurotransmitter and is necessary for normal synaptic transmission and brain health. Choline and Inositol work closely together to make the natural chemical “messengers” that help keep the brain and central nervous system working.

 

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 helps the body form new cells and neurotransmitters, which are chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is needed for normal brain development and function and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, emotions, and appetite. B6 also helps the body make melatonin, which helps regulate the body clock and sleep patterns.

If you'd like to try some for yourself you can order here.
