[Stress-Reduction] [Nerve Growth] [Mood] [Neuro Plasticity] [Neuro-Protective]
Lion's Mane, also known as Yamabushitake, is a proven cognitive enhancer, immunomodulator and anti-inflammatory, featuring, amongst other things, active nootropics called hericenones and erinacines.
Clinical studies suggests that these compounds can stimulate Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) production, which may help with regeneration of the myelin nerve sheath (the membrane of fatty tissue that protects brain and nerve cells). Increased NGF has also been associated with improved retention of new information via enhanced brain plasticity.
Recent research has shown that lions mane mushroom exerts an anti-inflammatory effect on brain cells and may even help regenerate them in the hippocampus region of the brain (responsible for processing memories and emotional responses) leading to a reduction in anxious and depressive behaviours.
[Focus] [Memory] [Stress-Reduction] [Mood] [Neuro-Protective] [Dendrite Growth] [Visual Processing]
Also known as water hyssop, bacopa has been used in traditional medicine like Ayurveda for 100s of years for the purposes of improving cognitive function, stress relief, and a general vitality.
Chemically, bacopa interacts with the dopamine and serotonergic systems in your brain, improving mood, attention and memory. Its main mechanism however, concerns promoting neuronal communication by enhancing the rate at which the nervous system can communicate via increased dendrite growth (appendages that are designed to receive communications from other brain cells).
Bacopa contains active compounds called bacosides, which have been shown to exert antioxidant effects, especially in the brain. Clinical studies have shown that it reduces free radical damage and reverses signs of memory impairment, improving memory, attention, and the ability to process visual information.

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid compound used as a precursor in your brain to produce dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. In other words, it’s a compound that gets converted into those neuro-stimulants in the brain.
Dopamine is best known as the principal neurotransmitter associated with the motivational component of reward-motivated behaviour, but its biological functions also include enhancing attention, improved working memory, improve mood, stress reduction and the production of thyroid hormones. It’s for these reasons that weight loss and pre-workout supplements often include it.
Clinical studies have shown that, under psychological stress and sleep-deprivation, l-tyrosine exerts a protective effect, improves memory recall and heightening attention.
[Mood] [Stress-Reduction] [Sleep] [Memory] [Neuro-Protective]
5-Hydroxytryptophan is a chemical precursor and metabolic intermediate to serotonin; in other words, a compound that gets converted into serotonin in your brain. Serotonin’s is best known as the principal neurotransmitter associated with subjective wellbeing and alleviating depression. Its biological functions also include modulating cognition, reward, learning & memory.
5-HTP increases brain serotonin levels by bypassing a rate-limiting step to restore serotonin levels and is therefore associated with elevated mood and decreased anxiety. At the end of your day 5-HTP can increase levels of the hormone melatonin and slow wave sleep, both of which have been associated with learning and memory consolidation.
[Memory] [Cognition] [Neuro-Protective] [Mood] [Stress-Reduction]
Ginkgo biloba is a tree native to China and due to being the only surviving species of a 290 million year species, is often referred to as the living fossil. Ginkgo has been used in traditional medicines as far back as the 11th Century, most often for cognitive enhancement, or to alleviate cognitive decline.
In modern science it’s effects have been attributed to its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capacities in the form of flavonoids and terpenoids and its ability to improve circulation to the extremities (including the brain) via a 12% increase in nitric oxide, a vasodilator, which has also been shown to reduces anxiety.
11 studies thus far have shown its ability to notably slow cognitive decline to a degree comparable with the traditional Alzheimer’s drug Donepezil. 12 studies have shown a reliable increase in short term memory and free recall (lists memorisation) in those with or without diagnosed neurodegenerative disease states. A total of 10 studies thus far has reliably shown Ginkgo to improve general cognition and subjective wellbeing.
[Mood] [Anti-inflammatory] [Catalyst to other ingredients] [Neuro-Protective]
Zinc is an essential dietary mineral involved in 100s of your body’s processes, most notably integral to the synthesis of proteins, the regulation of signalling cascades, gene transcription and neurotransmitter transport. It’s involved in DNA repair, synthesis and methylation (biochemical reactions in the body that regulate the activity of the cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, and detoxification systems).
Zinc has been shown to assist treatment-resistant depression due to its effect on neurotransmission: inhibiting NMDA receptors which in turn reduces glutamate toxicity.
Low Zinc levels are often correlated with depression, and the lower the level the more severe the depression. Zinc increases serotonin uptake in select brain regions increases BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, a protein that, in human brains, supports the survival of existing neurons, and encourages the growth of new neurons and synapses).
Zinc is involved in preserving ‘genomic stability’ via the regulation of redox homeostasis (both oxidant and antioxidant signalling), anti-viral activity, DNA repair, synthesis, and methylation. Zinc inhibits the production of inflammatory cytokines and protects against cognitive decline induced by toxic copper levels.
VITAMINS B6, B9 and B12
[Focus] [Memory] [Energy] [Neuro-Protective] [Blood Flow] [Visual Health] [Catalyst to other ingredients]
All B-vitamins are known to contribute something to your brain health. Bright Light features the B-vitamins most strongly associated with those benefits and the role they play as cofactors and catalysts to many of the other ingredients.
B6, B9 and B12 are included for their key roles in the nervous system, especially their role in contributing to normal psychological function, energy yielding metabolism, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and synthesising and metabolising serotonin - a neurotransmitter responsible for regulating mood.
Vitamin B6, sometimes called Pyridoxine, helps to create neurotransmitters, and regulate energy use in the brain. Due to its role in the creation of serotonin, dopamine & GABA, it may improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and even PMS.
Vitamin B9, sometimes called folate or folic acid, aides in the creation of DNA and RNA & the formation of neurotransmitters. There is also evidence to suggest it can help prevent or slow memory loss associated with aging.
Vitamin B12 may improve your mood via the vital role it plays synthesising and metabolizing serotonin. Deficiency is surprisingly common and is associated with memory loss, especially in older adults. It also appears to play a role in preventing brain atrophy - the loss of neurons in the brain often associated with memory loss or dementia.
Overall, supplementing these three vitamins may lower homocysteine, a type of amino acid that, when elevated, has been associated with mood imbalance and declines in cognitive and ophthalmic (eye) health. Conversely, homocysteine levels in a healthy range, have been associated with overall mental health and performance.
[Focus] [Stress-Reduction] [Mental Endurance] [Neuro-Protective]
Ginseng has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries for it’s two significant compounds: ginsenosides and gintonin. These compounds complement one another to provide you with memory improvement, the prevention of degenerative brain diseases and offsetting depression and anxiety.
Ginseng may help improve brain functions like memory, behaviour and mood. Studies show that components in ginseng could protect the brain against damage caused by free radicals. One study followed 30 healthy people who consumed 200 mg of Panax ginseng daily for four weeks, concluding that they showed significant improvements in overall wellbeing, social functioning, calmness, and math skills.
It is also possible that ginseng assists the uptake of blood sugar by cells, in turn enhancing mental performance and reducing fatigue.
[Focus] [Stress-Reduction] [Cognition] [Mood] [Physical Endurance] [Mental Endurance] [Neuro-Protective]
Rhodiola Rosea is a herb in the adaptogen family who’s active components rosavin and salidroside are though to be responsible for its well documented & significant fatigue & stress reducing actions. If you’re looking to reduce ‘burnout’ from stress or anxiety; numerous studies have shown the significant benefits rhodiola can offer.
Additionally, when supplementation before exercise, rhodiola appears to extend endurance in a number of studies. Along with reduced stress and anxiety themselves, comes an improvement in subjective wellbeing as rhodiola appears to be highly serotonergic (increases serotonin) and reduces corticosteroids (stress hormones).
Preliminary evidence also suggests that rhodiola is highly neuroprotective against toxins (and that ingesting its active component can reduce stress-induced binge eating in animal studies.
Amazingly, rhodiola may even promote longevity, with preliminary (non-mammalian) evidence showing up to a 20% increase in lifespans!
MATCHA GREEN TEA
[Focus] [Stress-Reduction] [Endurance][Neuro-Protective]
Green tea features an amino acid unique to tea known as L-Theanine. L-theanine helps you to increase the activity of alpha brainwaves associated with a state of wakeful relaxation and enhanced creativity.
It also balances the levels of excitable neurotransmitters and calming neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and GABA, making it great at reducing the jittery side effects of caffeine and other stimulants. L-Theanine has been shown by researchers to modulate the brain’s ‘attention circuitry.’
Green tea and L-theanine have long been shown to include natural anti-viral properties and to protect neurons from oxidative damage, potentially helping to maintain clear thinking before and during the aging process.
[Focus] [Stress-Reduction] [Endurance][Neuro-Protective]
Ashwagandha, one of the most important herbs in Ayurveda (an ancient medicinal tradition revered it for over 3,000 years) for its ability to relieve stress, increase energy levels, and improve concentration.
Scientifically, Ashwagandha is classed as an adaptogen, meaning that it can help your body manage stress. Ashwagandha has been shown to boost brain function, lower blood sugar and help fight symptoms of anxiety and depression by reducing cortisol levels and blocking stress pathways via chemical signalling in the nervous system.
In one controlled study, healthy men who took a standardized extract daily and reported significant improvements in their reaction time and task performance, compared with men who received a placebo.
