Controlled Labs Orange Brainwash is a comprehensive dietary supplement, containing a number of active compounds that support the proper functioning of the nervous system, memory, concentration and cognitive functions. The product comes in a convenient powder form and has an attractive taste. The package contains 20 portions.
L-Theanine is a naturally occurring amino acid in green tea, considered a nootropic substance. In studies conducted on an animal model, L-theanine has a memory-improving effect and learning ability. In turn, in the human study, the sedative and anxiolytic properties of this compound were found - increased production of alpha brain waves was noted, which resulted in relaxation with maintained vigilance and clarity of mind. On this basis, it can be concluded that L-theanine helps control stress and improve concentration, which is important especially during periods of intensive studying, e.g. during exam periods.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an acetylated form of L-carnitine with antioxidant and neuroprotective properties. Acetylation allows the compound to pass through the blood-brain barrier. By conditioning long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria, acetyl L-carnitine supports energy metabolism of the body and fat burning, leading to increased energy levels. It supports optimal levels of dopamine and acetylcholine, supports brain function, and can even protect neurons from the effects of aging.
L-Tyrosine is an endogenous amino acid formed in the body from an exogenous amino acid - phenylalanine. L-Tyrosine is a precursor to the synthesis of major catecholamines - dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are the most important neurotransmitters stimulating in the sympathetic nervous system. From the point of view of cognitive function improvement, noradrenaline seems to be the most important, which simultaneously mobilizes the body and increases concentration. Interestingly, increasing norepinephrine levels in synaptic clefts is the mechanism of action of some antidepressants.
Alpha GPC, or alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline, is one of the best bioavailable choline sources with documented nootropic properties. Thanks to the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, Alpha GPC is available for nerve cells. Choline is a precursor to the synthesis of acetylcholine - an important neurotransmitter responsible for the transmission of nerve stimuli and participating in the creation of memory traces, maintaining high concentration and assimilation of knowledge.
Lion's Mane is a species of fungus known in Eastern medicine for many centuries. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. In studies conducted on humans, the ability of the Lion’s mane to improve cognitive functions was demonstrated. In addition, Lion’s Mane supports the production of NGF - nerve growth factor, contributing to their regeneration.
Bacopa monnieri is an Ayurvedic plant that has adaptogenic, nootropic and anxiolytic properties. The bacosidins contained in the plant have the properties that stimulate the central nervous system, especially the limbic system. They improve the mating and memorizing processes, and also have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. The "anti-stress" effect of bacopa monnieri is noticeable quite quickly, and at least 4-6 weekly supplementation is needed to improve memory and cognitive abilities
Caffeine and theobromine are purine alkaloids derived from xanthine. They exhibit primarily a stimulating action and have a complex mechanism of action. They are cAMP phosphodiesterase inhibitors, resulting in prolonged activity, e.g. adrenaline. Theobromine also causes cerebral vasodilatation, increasing the supply of this organ with oxygen and nutrients.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is one of the phospholipids naturally forming part of the body's cell membranes, supporting their regeneration and proper permeability. In large amounts, PS occurs in the nervous tissue, supporting neuroplasticity, memory and cognitive functions. It affects the optimal use of glucose, which is the basic source of energy for the brain. PS may also increase the level of acetylcholine.
Astragalus and false ginseng (Tienchi Ginseng) are plants with strengthening and toning effect on the body. Astralagus has a normalizing effect on the heart, adrenal function and digestive processes, and false ginseng has a positive effect on energy metabolism and cardiovascular health.
Huperzia serrata is a plant containing hupercin A - an alkaloid which is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (acetylcholine decomposing enzyme). In combination with phosphatidylserine and carnitine, this compound effectively improves memory and concentration. Hupercine A is also used as an aid to Alzheimer's disease.
