DL-PHENYLALANINE

Also known as DLPA, DL-Phenylalanine contains different states of the amino acid phenylalanine. The “D” state of the substance is artificial, while the “L” state is organic, and can be found in foods abundant in protein. Primarily, D-Phenylalanine is used to determine how the central nervous system interacts with chronic pains located throughout the body,… read more »

DEPRENYL

An antidepressant discovered 30 years ago in Central Europe, deprenyl is a prescription drug used for many different medical purposes, such as its use as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease during the 1990’s. It is sorted into a class of medications known as Phenethylamines: naturally occurring chemicals that help to improve physical performance, depression, and… read more »

PYRITINOL

Developed in 1961, pyritinol is a vitamin naturally occurring in a variety of meats, vegetables, and fruits (which include poultry, chickpeas, and bananas). It encourages the absorption of choline by neurons in the brain. It is known to enhance the levels of both acetylcholine and dopamine to boost cognitive focus, learning, memory, and also to… read more »

PROPIONYL L-CARNITINE

Also known as PLCAR & GPLC (due to the addition of Glycine in the compound), Propionyl L-Carnitine is an amino acid that primarily promotes the growth and energy of muscles. This makes it a functional performance enhancer but a lackluster cognitive booster. Contents[Show/Hide] 1Effects 2Side Effects & Dosages Effects Propionyl L-Carnitine has a high bioavailability… read more »

VINPOCETINE

A synthesized extract from the natural periwinkle plant alkaloid Vincamine, Vinpocetine is reported to be safer than Vincamine and has generally replaced it in the supplement industry. There are over 50 alkaloids in the plant, but Vinpocetine is generally thought to be the most impactful, with well-noted benefits for cognitive functions.

VINCAMINE

Found in the leaves of the Vinca Minor (also known as the Dwarf Periwinkle) plant, Vincamine is a naturally occurring monoterpenoid indole alkaloid, the largest of its class. First extracted for industrial use in 1955, the development of Vincamine has led to the discovery and production of a purer compound, Vinpocetine, which provides all of… read more »

CREATINE

Creatine is most prevalent in its use as a physical performance enhancer, as it contributes to the continued development of lean muscles and shields cell membranes from harmful toxins. Mainly used by those in the heavy lifting industry, Its primary function is the delivery of energy to cells by allowing a compound called Adenosine diphosphate… read more »

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

An antioxidant as well as a natural fatty acid, Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as ALA) is a substance that is used by the human body to turn glucose into use able energy. It is produced by both animals and plants, and is also used to strengthen and repair cells located throughout the body. Contents[Show/Hide]… read more »

ACETYL L-CARNITINE

A derivative of the supplement Carnitine, Acetyl L-Carnitine (also known as ALCAR) acts as a different form of enhancer due to its impact on a user’s mental state rather than their physical capabilities. Its greater bioavailability (ability to enter efficiently into the bloodstream and reach the brain) separates itself from L-Carnitine, and once it does… read more »

UNIFIRAM

A newcomer to the nootropic market, Unifiram stimulates the communication between neurons in the brain by exciting AMPA receptors, receptors that assist in the production of glutamate and acetylcholine, powerful neurotransmitters. It is closely related to the compound Sunifiram, and provides similar enhancing effects which also share the same incredible potency. Unifiram is not as… read more »
