Cognizin® Citicoline, 250 mg

Citicoline is an organic compound produced in all living cells. A versatile nootropic for both brain health and cognitive enhancement, citicoline is suggested to

  1. Support phospholipids used to build brain cells and optimize brain cell functions;
  2. Raise acetylcholine, supporting brain chemistry for learning, attention and memory;
  3. Optimize the powerhouse mitochondria that produce energy for all brain cells;
  4. Support cerebral blood flow that supplies oxygen for brain energy metabolism;
  5. Stabilize brain cell membranes for healthy neural repair, regeneration and function.

Performance Lab® Mind Cognizin® is citicoline enhanced with next-generation nutrition technology – clinically shown to enhance brain energy, focus, attention, memory and brain health.

Cognizin® Citicoline
Cellular Synthesis

Cognizin® may boost brain cell membrane formation by 26% and brain energy by 13.6%*.

Sharp PS® Green
(Soy-Free Phosphatidylserine), 100 mg

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a phospholipid (healthy fat) present in nearly all cells. PS is most concentrated in the brain, where it helps cognition and long-range health in many ways:

Brain cell formation

Phosphatidylserine promotes Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and serves as a building block used in multiple phases of brain regeneration, including:

  1. Neurogenesis, the creation of fresh new brain cells;
  2. Plasticity, the formation of neural connections that underlies all new learning;
  3. Neural repair, ongoing maintenance and upkeep of brain cells.

Neural communication

PS optimizes brain cell membranes for peak performance, helping with signaling molecules, receptors and enzymes involved in neurotransmission. PS has been shown to:

  1. Regulate brain chemicals acetylcholine, serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine;
  2. Detect damaged brain cells and signal the immune system to initiate their cleanup;
  3. Blunt stress-induced signaling that stimulates release of stress hormone cortisol.

Brain energy

PS supports brain energy levels; one human study linked PS supplementation to a 20.3% increase in basal ganglia/thalamus glucose metabolism.

Phosphatidylserine

PS bioactivities combine to provide powerful support for memory and performance-driven thinking. Researchers have linked PS supplementation to improvements in:

  • Memory Storage
  • Quick Recall
  • Learning
  • Mood Balance
  • Problem Solving
  • Focus/Attention
  • Concentration
  • Verbal Ability

Performance Lab® Mind Sharp-PS® Green is the most advanced phosphatidylserine form available. Most PS is soy-based; Sharp-PS® Green is instead made from non-GMO sunflowers using a patented, eco-friendly process.

Performance Lab® Mind Phospholipid Stack
Cognizin® + Sharp-PS® Green

Cognizin® and Sharp-PS® Green both increase brain phospholipids: Healthy fats that are used to form, repair and optimize brain cell membranes.

Together in Mind, Cognizin® + Sharp-PS® Green supply 2x support for the fluid, flexible brain cell membrane performance associated with memory, mood, learning and long-range brain health.

Healthy brain cell membrane

Ajipure® L-Tyrosine, 250 mg

L-Tyrosine

During stress, intense thinking and multitasking, the brain burns quickly through brain chemicals called catecholamines: Dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.

Subsequent catecholamine depletion has been linked to stress-induced cognitive issues including brain fog, poor focus, short attention span and mental burnout.

Supplemental L-Tyrosine is suggested to help reverse these negative consequences by:

  1. Serving as a raw material for synthesis of performance-oriented brain chemicals;
  2. Stimulating the synthesis and release of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine;
  3. Maintaining norepinephrine levels that are typically depleted by stress.

L-Tyrosine has been clinically shown to help mental processing, memory, and overall cognitive performance under stressful conditions including sleep deprivation, distraction and multitasking.

Performance Lab® Mind Ajipure® L-Tyrosine uses patented, eco-friendly Ferment-A-Pure technology to turn non-GMO and gluten free vegetable-derived carbohydrates into clean, bioavailable amino acids.

Maritime Pine Bark Extract (95% proanthocyanidins), 75 mg

Maritime Pine Bark Extract supplies a complex of antioxidant proanthocyanidins that help the brain by:

  1. Signaling for release of nitric oxide (NO), which relaxes blood vessels to support blood flow to the brain and optimal delivery of micronutrients, glucose and oxygen;
  2. Supplying antioxidants that cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain, where they help neutralize free radicals’ cell-damaging, age-accelerating effects;
  3. Optimizing brain plasticity and brain cell regeneration for long-range health

Performance Lab® Mind Maritime Pine Bark Extract is standardized to 95% antioxidant proanthocyanidins, making it the most potent nootropic pine bark extract available today.

Proanthocyanidin-A2

Take Performance Lab® Mind to upgrade your cognition, recover faster from mental exertion and support long-range brain health.

Upgrade Yourself®

Performance Lab® Mind enhances focus, memory, processing speed, motivation and more. Take it to excel mentally today and bounce back sharper tomorrow.

FAQ

Who should take Performance Lab® Mind

Mind is designed to support peak mental performance, making it an ideal brain supplement for students, professionals, competitive individuals, and anyone seeking to gain a mental edge across performance-driven aspects of cognition like focus, attention, alertness, processing speed, memorization and new learning.

How do I take Performance Lab® Mind

Take 1-2 capsules of Mind with your first meal of the day, preferably with a source of dietary fat such as Performance Lab® MCT or coconut oil to assist with absorption of Mind’s phospholipid nutrients. For best results use daily and consistently.

Is Performance Lab® Mind safe?

Like all Performance Lab® supplements, Mind is designed to be safe for long-term daily use, without the need for cycling. Mind achieves this by using pure, potent ingredients that are dosed appropriately and in line with clinical research. Mind’s clean formula design – free of GMOs, gluten, soy, colorants, preservatives and other additives – is also well-tolerated by the body, and safe for long-term use

Why is there no caffeine in Performance Lab® Mind?

Mind is stimulant-free by design. Instead of caffeine, Mind supplies Cognizin® Citicoline, which promotes brain energy naturally; and Pine Bark Extract, which helps nourish the brain with oxygen and glucose that assists Cognizin® in promoting peak brain ATP energy. Mind is formulated to promote alertness like stimulants do, but without jitters, crashing, and other side effects that may be associated with stimulant use. If you prefer caffeine, Mind stacks seamlessly with Performance Lab® Stim.

Why are there no racetams in Performance Lab® Mind?

Racetams are popular for supporting brainpower, but do not yet have enough well-designed research studies to be included in Performance Lab® formulas.

Why does Performance Lab® Mind not use Alpha-GPC or another form of choline?

Mind features Cognizin® as our exclusive source of choline because it offers more versatility than other forms. Cognizin® works by raising levels of Phosphatidylcholine (PC), a phospholipid for healthy brain structure; and Uridine, a nootropic for learning, memory and mood – making it a “2-in-1” choline source that has inherent advantages over all other forms of choline.
