Our brain has a lot to put up with during the day. It goes up, it goes down, exactly how our life style is. We tend more and more to engage in simultaneously activities just to feed ourselves with achievement. But at the end of the day, what did we achieve? Some compliments from our boss or a tap on the shoulder from a friend faking its admiration for the work you have done. But how is the brain feeling? Do we ever get to think about him? It is, in fact, a sort of engine that keeps us going through daily life.
We are offered many so-called solutions for taking care of it, for improving it, such as natural supplements that can effectively make your brain revive, they say. NooCube is a new nootropic produced by ERGO, part of the Wolfson Berg Group. The product proposes an unusual combination of ingredients, aimed to help the brain’s activity, regarding providing better focusing, memorizing and vigilance. So let us have a look on each ingredient and how they can work on the human body.
NooCube contains Alpha GPC, a metabolite of phosphatidylcholine, which is an essential component of neuronal membranes. Alpha GPC is water- soluble which passes the blood- brain barrier and works on the cerebral level. It improves learning, vigilance, and morale. Also, it has a positive impact on amending cognitive dysfunction determined by aging, trauma, surgeries or imbalances in the brain’s blood circulation. It improves the way signals are transmitted within the central nervous system, and it helps acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, to better work on the brain, by maintaining the availability of choline deposits in the membrane. Acetylcholine represents a great source of choline, which is considered to be one of the few substances to penetrate the blood- brain barrier so that a proper protection of the encephalon against sudden variations in the daily diet. Alpha GCP takes part in the better discharge of dopamine so that an appropriate exchange of information can be held between neurons.
Another ingredient blended in NooCube is Huperzine A, which is an alkaloid from the plant Huperzia serrata. Chinese traditional medicine uses it to help the elderly in amending the memorizing capacity. It is also considered to be useful in amnesia and Alzheimer’s disease. Nowadays, It is used in various nootropics because it has excellent antioxidant properties, which work on improving the focus and memory. Huperzine A is an active ingredient that inhibits the production of an enzyme responsible for reducing the acetylcholine quantity from the central nervous system.
Cat’s claw, also known as Uncaria tomentose is considered a sacred plant, as it contains 30 active ingredients, antioxidants, and esoteric acids. Cat’s claw is an actual relief for the aged affected by bone and joint pains. The plant provides a high protection for the cartilage, and it blocks the development or the aggravation of osteoarthritis. Studies have concluded that cat’s claw has the greatest antioxidant properties and it can anneal the body by protecting it against infections and morbidities determined by germs from air or water. It can block the cellular division, the DNA’s destruction and helps repair cells which have been affected by cancer.
Bacopa, this Indian plant, is well known for helping in the Alzheimer’s disease by slowing it down; in talking disorders, poor focusing capacity and epilepsy. It can bring relief in anxiety, depression and it reduces stress. In
India and , the Bacopa plant is used to improve breathing functions, in bronchitis, asthma, but also for digestive disorders. Some specialists stated that it could represent a real ally in recovering after neurosurgical operations and paresis. Pakistan
The oat straw, also known as Avena sativa, is another ingredient contained in NooCube. It plays a significant role in feeding the brain and the nervous system. In essence, this plant is highly praised for bringing relief to the nerves, as it has a remarkable anti-neurotic effect when dealing with nervous breakdowns. Studies have shown how oat straw can help in Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy; it can support those individuals trying to give up drugs, such as morphine, heroin, cocaine or even alcohol. Experts recommend a daily intake of 3 or 4 doses, while gradually reducing the substance which gave the addiction.
Other ingredients found in NooCube are L-theanine and L-tyrosine. L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea. Up until now, studies have shown that it can profoundly improve calmness and supports focussing without that nervous feeling you get from the usual energizing beverages. L-theanine maintains proper levels of various substances which help in an efficient brain activity, such as dopamine, glycine, GABA ( gamma- Aminobutyric acid), alpha brain waves. L- Tyrosine is another amino acid which the liver synthesizes through the conversion of phenylalanine, but there are cases in which an external source is necessary. It improves the body’s response to stress factors, regarding providing more quickness, more muscular energy. It improves mobility, reduces tremor and joint rigidity. It helps in stimulating a better brain activity (memorizing, learning capacity, focus) and it reduces the symptoms of excessive tiredness and drowsiness during the day.All these ingredients with all their properties are combined in this new nootropic, NooCube, to support the brain in this chaotic life style in which most of us are living. We were gifted with this marvelous organ, the brain, and it is our duty to take care of it as much as we can and assist it with all that is appropriate so that it can function at its high capacity.
