Athletic Alliance Brainstorm Advanced Nootropic
Brainstorm is our advanced nootropic designed to increase memory, creativity, reasoning and other cognitive functions using natural ingredients. It is our unique blend of ingredients proven to support cognitive function, primarily increasing productions of acetylcholine and increasing neutron communication.
- Alpha GPC (L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine) is a natural phytochemical/extract found in some plants. Clinical studies show that Alpha GPC increases the natural production of acetylcholine in the brain, heightening memory and learning functions, by increasing blood and oxygen flow.
- Huperzine A Works synergistically with Alpha-GPC to increases acetylcholine which helps memory and other cognitive functions by inhibiting an enzyme that breaks down the compound.
- Bacopa Monnieri is an herb used for centuries in Ayurveda, an ancient system of natural healing that helps to reach the full potential of the mind and body. Studies now show bacopa mennieri increases the growth of nerve endings, which enhances the rate at which the nervous system can communicate. Bacopa is also shown to reduce anxiety and improve memory.
- Ginkgo Biloba is native to China, and has been commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine dating back to the 15th century. Studies confirm ginkgo can be supplemented for cognitive enhancement, and to alleviate cognitive decline. Ginkgo has also been shown to increase blood flow to the middle and anterior cerebral arteries in the brain, thus improving memory.
- GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is a neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain. Supplementation of GABA relieves anxiety, soothes nervous activity, and improves sleep. By lowering the transmission of nerve impulses between neutrons, GABA creates a calming and quieting influence, preventing over-stimulation.
- Guarana is a natural source of caffeine and theobromine which together work to improve alertness and focus.
- L-Theanine is a non-dietary amino acid that originates from camellia sinensis, an ingredient commonly found in teas. L-Theanine is considered a relaxing agent without sedation. It reduces the perception of stress while simultaneously improving attention. This works synergistically with guarana to create a calming energy that promotes better alertness and focus than achieved by the use of caffeine alone, as well as instantly reducing the unpleasant side-effects that are commonly accompanied. L-Theanine and Guarana work together to produce a clean form of energy that lasts for multiple hours.
- Rhodiola Rosea (Root Extract) is a herb which is famed as an anti-fatigue agent and adaptogen compound. Rhodiola is shown to improve cognitive function in those experiencing fatigue. It also significantly reduces the effects of prolonged and minor physical exhaustion.
