Brain ON Superfood Concentrate 30g

How does BrainON work?

BrainON works specifically on our nervous system, brain function and the quality of our consciousness. It enables us to make a change in perception and increases our sense of well being and joy by relieving stress and increasing awareness.

Key Benefits of Brain On:

– Supports learning functions
– improves memory of the Immune system
– improves immunity on a cellular level
– highly nutritious containing essential fatty acids, and all amino acids
– ancient volcanic mineral content

What is AFA (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae)?

AFA is a nutrient dense, whole, wild blue-green algae superfood that supports overall cellular health. AFA is an excellent source of 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids (EFAs) and rich source of chlorophyll. It also contains antioxidant molecules which have shown to have beneficial effects by reducing oxidative stress. It contains concentrated forms of natural amines to enhance brain function and improve emotional health, with the following noticeable effects:

an elevation in mood and improved behaviour patterns
elevated alertness
alleviated depression

What is PEA (Phenylethylamine)?

PEA known as the love molecule, also found in high levels in Raw Cacao. BrainON contains a concentrated high level of organic PEA. There is up to 20 times more PEA in Brain On than found in Raw Cacao. Raw Cacao & AFA work synergistically so when taken together it is a highly recommended and powerful combination!

PEA acts on the emotional centre of the brain to markedly promote mood balance, mental alertness and increase energy.

PEA has been shown to be at a lower level in those with Attention Deficit Disorder, therefore BrainON provides an extra shot of this PEA to support overall cognitive function. People report increased attention at both school and work.

What is Phycocyanin?
Phycocyanin is a naturally occurring, brilliant blue pigment and stimulates blood production which in turn strengthens the immune system. It is also a potent antioxidant, protecting the body against DNA damage and premature aging.

How do I take BrainON ?
BrainON is best taken in cool to room temperature liquid – do not add to warm or hot liquids as this could impact the nutritional integrity. BrainON can be taken in water – it has a mild, slightly floral flavour. Its very palatable.

The best way to take BrainON is in one of the following synergistic combinations:

BrainON & raw cacao powder (can be added to raw chocolates or smoothies)
BrainON & raw plant fat such as:

cacao butter (add to raw chocolates)
coconut oil (add to raw chocolates)
avocado (add to raw chocolate mousse)

BrainON & chaga (can both be added to raw chocolates and smoothies) for its adaptagenic and immune modulating effect.

Brain On Dosage
Start with a teaspoon powder or 2 capsules. If the effects are noticed with this dose then continue to take BrainON as and when it is required (for example, an hour before a meeting or exam where focus is required). The effects generally last for a good few hours and will slowly fade with time. There are no major high and lows that occur on use of the product. If however no effect is noted, then take the dose daily until you achieve a desired effect. It is interesting to note that the effects are most noticeable in people who experience higher levels of stress. There are no side effects either so increasing the dose until a noticeable effect is achieved will not create any unpleasant reaction.

Children: Dosage should initially start at 1/4 teaspoon or 1 capsule.

Allergens: None

Contra-indications: This product is 100% safe though people diagnosed with Bi-Polar or Schizophrenia should consult with their doctor before using this product as it may cause over-stimulation of the senses.

Sfera Bacopin

Sfera Bacopin

Sfera Bacopin (Bacopa) is a tropical plant that is generally known for its cognitive and memory improving capabilities.

In the Ayurvedic medicine system of India, Bacopa is very often prescribed for memory improvement as well as enhancing one’s cognitive ability and to promote optimal brain function. It is especially good for improving attention and focus

Why Use Bacopin?

Bacopa contains bacosides and saponins which have a very beneficial effect on the brain’s neurotransmitters and also help to repair neurons that have become damaged.

The bacosides in this herb possess antioxidant activity and help protect the brain from free radical damage. Bacopa extract is now being considered as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

This herb also shows promise as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Through the consumption of Bacopa, one can greatly increase synaptic activity and the speed of nerve transmission and impulses. This in turn makes the thinking process faster and improves the speed of memory recall. Memory itself is enhanced due to Bacopa increasing the levels of Acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter that shuttles messages from one brain cell to another.

Many studies have proven significant improvement in the area of long and short-term memory in people who consistently take a Bacopa herbal extract. While it’s beneficial for people of all ages, anyone over the age of 40 will most likely benefit most from it. It can go a long way in keeping your brain and memory sharp.

Not only is this herb beneficial for the conditions mentioned above, it’s also great for its anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effects. People taking this herb often report that they are better able to handle stress and feel less anxious and depressed than usual.

Other little-known uses for Bacopa are for the treatment of asthma, bronchitis and allergies.

This is probably due to its ability to relax the pulmonary artery, trachea and aorta. It also possesses some anti-inflammatory properties.

Bacopa is truly a great overall brain tonic

The Benefits of Bacopin

To date, few studies have tested the health effects of bacopa.

However, research suggests that the herb shows promise in the treatment and/or prevention of the following health problems:

1) Cognitive Function

Scientists in Australia recently conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 12-week study to evaluate the effects of Bacopa on memory and other cognitive functions in healthy human subjects.2 A battery of 16 well-validated neuropsychological tests was administered to 46 volunteers (11 men and 35 women) aged 18 to 60 years, all of whom were free of physical or psychiatric conditions and of medications.

The tests were designed to assess a wide range of cognitive variables, including attention, short-term memory, verbal learning, memory consolidation, executive processes, planning and problem solving, information-processing speed, motor responsiveness, decision making, and anxiety state.

The tests were given at the outset of the trial to establish baseline values, and then again 5 weeks and 12 weeks after the treatment commenced. The treatment consisted of either placebo or a Bacopa extract: 150 mg (equivalent to 3 g of the dried herb) taken in capsule form twice daily (300 mg/day total) for 12 weeks.

Bacopa Significantly Improves Memory

The study showed that Bacopa significantly improved the speed of early information processing, verbal learning rate, and memory consolidation in humans. These results support previous animal studies and clinical trials on children and on patients with anxiety neurosis, all of which showed learning and memory-enhancing effects with Bacopa extracts.

The authors concluded by saying that “The current finding suggests that B. monniera may improve higher-order cognitive processes that are critically dependent on the input of information from our environment such as learning and memory.”

2) Reduces Anxiety

The results also showed a significant anxiolytic (antianxiety) effect, which was also consistent with prior research. The authors suggested that this effect might be due to modulation of brain levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, because it is known that Bacopa does modulate serotonin levels in animals. Serotonin plays an important role in mood regulation, among other things. It is also known from animal studies that Bacopa modulates the brain levels of acetylcholine, another important neurotransmitter, which is involved in memory and other cognitive functions.

3) Antioxidant Properties

In addition to its effects on brain neurotransmitters, Bacopa is known to have antioxidant effects that may account in part for its actions in enhancing cognitive functions. In laboratory studies on rat liver tissue, researchers found that Bacopa extract inhibits experimentally induced lipid peroxidation. Lipids are fatty substances such as cholesterol and triglycerides. In the bloodstream, their peroxidation (which is a specific kind of oxidation reaction, initiated by free radicals) is highly damaging to our health, because it plays a key role in the formation of atherosclerotic plaque in the arteries. And atherosclerosis can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Thus, anything that can help to inhibit lipid peroxidation is beneficial to our health, because it slows the progression of atherosclerosis.

4) May Sharpen Your Edge

In ancient times, before writing was invented, human knowledge was passed from generation to generation orally, in the form of myths, legends, songs, and epic poems. In India, some of these epics were gargantuan in scope, requiring days or even weeks to recite. They had to be memorized, of course – a task that probably took years to accomplish (no wonder someone finally invented writing!). Reputedly, Bacopa played a role in helping to enhance the memories of those who undertook this enormous challenge.

You may not be faced with anything quite so daunting in your life, but if it’s possible to sharpen the edge of your memory a little, it will probably be worth it for the ways in which that might improve the quality of your life. It’s a natural link to an ancient and honourable past.

Sfera 5 HTP Complex

Sfera 5 HTP Complex

Sfera 5 HTP Complex

The Griffonia seed is a black, dime-sized seed that contains the largest amount of the compound 5-HTP, making up nearly 20% of its composition. 5-HTP is a chemical that serves as a precursor to the synthesis of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep.

How 5HTP and serotonin work

Serotonin works by transmitting signals between nerve cells and altering brain functions that affect mood states and sleep. In fact, supplementing with 5HTP has been shown to lower depression symptoms as well as many prescription medications can.

Amino acid therapy is somewhat of an emerging field, which is based on the fact that certain amino acids have been found to be very helpful with treating conditions like sleep disorders, depression, fatigue, anxiety and sexual dysfunctions. Amino acids in general are a nutritional requirement for everyone: children, adults, vegetarians, omnivores and everyone in between. The best part about using targeted amino acids to help resolve health conditions and ease symptoms is that they’re completely natural, require no prescription and the vast majority of the time cause no side effects whatsoever.

Because of its ability to boost serotonin levels, 5HTP has been used to help treat numerous disorders, including:

  • sleep disorders
  • mood disorders like depression and anxiety
  • migraines and tension headaches
  • binge eating disorder
  • learning disabilities like ADHD
  • PMS and menopausal symptoms
  • fibromyalgia
  • and more

SevenPointFive Boost

SevenPointFive Boost

SevenPointFive Boost

SevenPointFive Boost has been developed to help promote good moods, and good times in the bedroom. In today’s world, more is more. More work, more energy, more stuff. And yet the calm we seek seems to elude us. And that affects our relationships. Boost was developed with this in mind. While it promotes more energy and endurance physically, it has important emotional benefits. It promotes good moods, and improved sexual function should the mood take you.

What is in Sevenpointfive Boost?

  • Sceletium tortuosum (Kanna) – Studies have reported Sceletium to elevate mood, reduce anxiety and stress, and alleviate pain. It opens the heart, dissolves emotional armoring, and removes relational fear, promoting intimacy. This has an aphrodisiacal effect stemming from an emotional response, and not a physical action. Additionally, women who suffer from psychologically-caused dyspareunia or vaginismus (painful intercourse or the inability to allow penetration) will find the deep physical-emotional grounding and opening effects of Sceletium will ease these conditions, and potentially totally transform them, allowing full sexual function and expression.
  • Cordyceps Sinensis – This fungus promotes improved exercise performance, and has anti-aging properties. It is also known to improve various brain functions, specifically the areas of the brain which are responsible for activating sexual desire and other processes of the reproductive system. Another effect of this fungus extract is that it stimulates the sex glands for hormone production, which makes you feel younger. It also increases the testosterone levels in the body which help to keep men’s sexual health at peak. It also promotes blood flow which will help erectile dysfunction..
  • Morinda Officinalis (Ba ji tian) – This herb improves libido (sex drive) in men and women. It is believed to strengthen the bones and tendons, as well as treat infertility, missing menstrual periods, blood clots during menstruation, and other sexual health problems. It also increases testosterone production.
  • Cornus Officialis (Shan Zhu Yu) – This is a herb that “stabilizes and binds” and is used principally to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding and unusually active secretions including copious sweating, excessive urine, spermatorrhoea and premature ejaculation.
  • Eurycoma Longifolia (Tongkat Ali) – Used in the East as an aphrodisiac, preliminary studies have shown an increase in sexual performance when using Tongkat Ali. It is best known for its ability to enhance libido, testosterone levels, erectile function, sexual performance, and fertility in men, but it also relieves anxiety and stress while improving mental energy.

What is unique about Sevenpontfive Boost?

Contrary to most sexual health products that focus on the physical aspects of sexual health, Boost also pays attention to the mental and emotional aspects. It can be used by both men and women and can be taken regularly, or just when a boost is needed on that particular evening.

What has Sevenpointfive Boost been used for?

  • Improve general mood
  • Promote intimacy
  • Stimulate sexual glands and hormones
  • Promote physical stamina
  • Minimise erectile dysfunction
  • Minimise vaginal dysfunction

Suggested use:

Take 1 capsule as needed or as directed by your health care practitioner.

BioLife Coenzyme Q10 100mg 30 capsules

BioLife Coenzyme Q10 100mg 30 capsules

CO Q10 is found in all cell membranes. Most CO Q10 is found in the mitochondria, the energy producing part of every cell, especially in the heart, brain, kidneys and liver. It is essential in producing ATP or fuel on which the body functions. CO Q10 is also a fat soluble anti-oxidant and therefore helps boost the body’s immune system by destroying free radicals.

It helps provide energy to cells. Coenzyme Q10 also seems to have antioxidant activity. People with certain diseases, such as heart failure, high blood pressure, gum disease, Parkinson’s disease, blood infections, certain diseases of the muscles, and HIV infection, might have lower levels of coenzyme Q10.

It is believed by many practitioners that all patients taking statins for cholesterol lowering reasons should be on COQ10.

Many sportsmen and woman have found Ubiquinone (Co-Enzyme Q10) to be a natural manner in which to improve performance.
