Nootropic complex with standardised extracts
Choline, Rhodiola Rosea, Bacopa Monnieri, Brewer’s Yeast, Caffeine
Description: Pro Concentration
Thiamine, riboflavin (Vitamin B2), niacin, vitamin B6 and biotin contribute to normal functioning of the nervous system.
Pantothenic acid contributes to normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters.
Pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental performance.
Pantothenic acid contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
The term nootropic comes from the Greek nóos (mind, intellect) and tropéō (to bend or turn), and includes all substances that promote learning and improve cognition and memory (1).
Pro Concentration contains choline, plant extracts (bacopa and rhodiola), B vitamin-rich brewer’s yeast and naturally occurring caffeine, which helps to improve concentration.
Choline is an essential nutrient required for the synthesis of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays in important role in short-term memory and attention (2).
Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea L.) is an adaptogenic* plant that contributes to optimal mental and cognitive activity (3); it stimulates perception and improves mood (4). To guarantee maximum efficiency, we have selected an extract of rhodiola with standardised salidroside and rosavin content. These compounds have been widely studied and make up the active principles of this plant.
Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri (L.) Wettst.) is a plant that helps improve concentration, cognitive function and learning (5). Like rhodiola (3), it also aids normal blood circulation, which is linked to mental performance (6). The main compounds responsible for bacopa’s activity are bacosides, which is why in Pro Concentration we have included an extract with 45% standardised bacoside content.
Lalmin® B-Complex Vitamins brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is a natural source of B vitamins, which have a range of functions. Vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2, B3 (niacin), B6 and B7 (biotin) contribute to the normal function of the nervous system. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) also contributes to the normal synthesis and metabolism of certain neurotransmitters, as well as aiding normal mental performance. This vitamin also helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue (7).
Finally, Pro Concentration contains naturally occurring caffeine from coffee seeds (Coffea arabica L.). This alkaloid helps to increase alertness and improve concentration (8).
*Adaptogen: a natural compound that helps the body adapt to stress (9).
