GABA is a neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain. Low levels of GABA may be linked to:
- Anxiety or mood disorders
- Chronic pain
According to WebMD, researchers suspect that GABA may boost mood or have a calming, relaxing effect on the nervous system.
Caffeine is a chemical found in coffee, tea, cola, guarana, mate, and other products. It is most commonly used to improve mental alertness.
PS may sharpen memory, slow cognitive decline, and promote a positive-minded outlook. It has shown promise for helping elderly with brain degeneration, apparently slowing the progression of memory loss while helping with mood, anxiety, socialization and mental clarity. As a result, PS is the only nootropic with an FDA-qualified claim for reducing cognitive decline risk.
Vitamin D (ergocalciferol-D2, cholecalciferol-D3, alfacalcidol) is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus are important for building and keeping strong bones.
Besides, the lack of Vitamin D-3 is often shown through low-energy levels and bad mood. I’ve been often taking Vitamin D-3 with other nootropics to keep my performance on the maximum level.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha-lipoic acid is a vitamin-like chemical called an antioxidant. Yeast, liver, kidney, spinach, broccoli, and potatoes are good sources of alpha-lipoic acid. It is also made in the laboratory for use as medicine. Some people use alpha-lipoic acid for memory loss and other issues.
Huperzine A is used for Alzheimer’s disease, memory and learning enhancement, and age-related memory impairment. It is also used for treating a muscle disease called myasthenia gravis, for increasing alertness and energy, and for protection against agents that damage the nerves such as nerve gasses.
Bacopa has strong ties to memory performance and a long association with new learning and retention. Human research shows Bacopa may slow the rate of forgetting newly acquired knowledge. Researchers have also suggested it may accelerate mental processing, optimize cognition under stress, and promote relaxation.
Human clinical research has suggested Tyrosine may help to promote working memory under multitasking conditions and optimise mental performance under high stress, fatigue, and sleep deprivation. In addition to its reputation as a nootropic for maintaining mental performance under stress, Tyrosine has recently drawn interest as an attention & focus-oriented nootropic.
Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid, but it is often referred to as an amino acid, a chemical that is a required building block of protein. Some people use it as a supplement for treating ADHD.
As an ”adaptogen” herb, it helps strengthen mental + physical stress resistance while supporting brain energy, promoting clear, calm thinking under taxing conditions. Rhodiola is used to enhance mental processing, memory, learning, attention span, mood and work capacity. It also gained fame as a mind-body performance-enhancer among Eastern Bloc era Olympic biathletes and powerlifters.
Vinpocetine has rapid uptake into the brain and has been shown to promote attention, concentration, and memory in the short term (showing benefit to memory within 2 days). Its long-term brain supportive activity appears to help with age-related brain degeneration.
Approximately 15% of adults over age 60 are deficient in B12. Low levels are tied to problems with mood and brainpower, typically in the context of age-related cognitive decline. B12, especially as methylcobalamin, helps restore levels needed for optimal cognitive function, bright mood, and mental energy. As it protects nerve sheaths, B12 also supports healthy long-term brain function.
Even though there is still a lack of long-term effect of taking some of the listed ingredients, most studies confirm the positive effects of the ingredients without having any negative side-effects when taken within the recommended dose.
I definitely recommend you to talk to your doctor before taking OptiMind capsules to be on the safe side.
