Lion’s Mane – Yamabushitake is an edible mushroom that has been used for centuries by Asian cultures as a powerful agent in the treatment of mental disorders and neurological conditions.
Lion’s Mane is one of the few Nootropics on this list that has shown a marked ability to to actual help regenerate neural networks—specifically in the regeneration of mylelin along neural axons.
This natural ‘smart mushroom’ has been reportedly consumed by monks as a tea for centuries as a means to enhance concentration during periods of meditation. Lion’s mane has shown the ability to lower anxiety, stem cognitive decline, lessen feelings of depression, lower symptoms of menopause, and positively effect the quality of sleep.
Gamma-Amino-Butyric Acid – GABA has been said by many as being the holy grail of supplements for promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety.
GABA is the ‘downer’ in the world of neurotransmitters, counter-balanced by Glutamate—and all the processes involved.
Many other Nootropics on this list, especially the Racetam family, are thought to act by antagonizing GABA-related receptor sites within the brain, indicating the body’s ability to deeply utilize this Nootropic compound. In addition to it’s neurological benefits, GABA is also taken by many as a way to naturally ‘boost’ Growth Hormone levels. GABA has been shown in clinical trials to increase serum Growth Hormone levels by up to 400%, reaching peak at around 1 hour after ingestion. GABA unfortunately shows great difficulty in it’s ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, making effective dosages somewhat larger compared to other Nootropics on this list. For example, many GABA supplements list a single dosage as being 750mg or more.
The Synapse line of our Natural & Organic Noortropics has been carefully studied in a laboratory environment coupled with almost 40 years of research. The first of our line will always be the dearest of all since it was first researched on my own father, Ken Suri. He was ravaged by Progressive supranuclear palsy – PSP and was provided with several more years of a better quality of life with Synapse for PSP. We are still undergoing post marketing trials with him. Our PTSD line of Synapse serves those also inflicted with Generalized Anxiety Disorder – GAD. We also have a proprietary line of Cannabinoid Oil – CBD which is also extremely useful for this disorder.
