26 cognitive enhancing ingredients working in multiple bio-pathways to optimize a wide array of cognitive functions — for whole-life mental performance.
Imagine your child on their best day, every day.
Improved mood, focus, concentration and motivation all while lowering nervousness and agitation levels.
Distractions, options, and a young mind’s thirst for constant mental stimulation can leave the brightest child with mental fatigue, unmotivated, and run the risk of missing out on the opportunity provided by a solid education.
Lack of Focus, mood swings, along with the pressures of fitting in with other students and social circles can leave today’s children despondent.
Prep is a delicately formulated cognitive enhancer for the young minds (9 to15 years old) to provide support for core brain functions, focus and concentration levels, motivation to study.
Contained in Prep formulation is a high-quality blend of 26 neuro-protective ingredients, vitamins, and minerals, for the healthy development of a child.
The ingredients have individually gone through clinical trials that reveal their potential of supporting vital brain function. Overall, Prep’s formula works by targeting anxiety, promoting healthy brain cell function and learning abilities, nourishing the brain with vital nutrients and antioxidants that aid learning. It also reduces both mental and physical stress, which in turn brings longer periods of attention span and focus, and supports concentration by calming the mind and reduces distracting thoughts.
|Alpha Lipoic Acid
A mitochondrial fatty acid that is highly involved in energy metabolism. It is a potent anti-oxidant compound. It works with mitochondria and the body’s natural antioxidant defenses. It is also seen as an anti-aging compound since it can reverse some of the oxidant damage related effects of aging.
An important amino acid produced in the body and changes into nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a powerful neurotransmitter that helps blood vessels relax and also improves circulation. It also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.
An amino acid (a building block for proteins) that is able to alleviate the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria, while increasing the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat. It is often used as a brain booster, due to its ability to increase alertness and mitochondrial capacity while providing support for the neurons.
A direct precursor for Acetylcholine which is one of the neurotransmitters that controls memory formation and a number of other cognitive processes.
A natural extract derived from the leaf of the Chinese ginkgo tree also called the maidenhair tree and contains two constituents (flavonoids and terpenoids) that have strong antioxidant properties. It has been widely studied for its effective anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, platelet-forming and circulation-boosting effects. According to current research, it’s linked to improvements in cognitive function, maintaining a positive mood, increasing energy, improving memory and reducing symptoms related to multiple chronic diseases.
Serves as both a function of energy storage and release and as a component of antioxidants in the body. While it aids in the energy release, it also provides an antioxidant function which is so important in high energy turnover activities.
One of nine essential amino acids necessary for human health. It helps the body to absorb calcium and plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance that is critical for bones, skin, tendons, cartilage, and other connective tissues.
An essential aromatic amino acid in humans, plays a key role in the biosynthesis of other amino acids and is important in the structure and function of many proteins, enzymes and contributes to the formation of important neurotransmitters. This neurotransmitter enhances mental alertness and memory and improves mood. Phenylalanine is used for depression, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Parkinson’s disease, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, and a skin disease called vitiligo.
An important phospholipid membrane component which plays a key role in cell cycle signaling, specifically in relationship to apoptosis. It is vital for cognitive function and is used for Alzheimer’s disease, age-related decline in mental function, improving thinking skills in young people, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, preventing exercise-induced stress, and improving athletic performance.
Contains high levels of various vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, E, and K), beta-carotene, other carotenoids, and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and zinc. It is also a source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA, an important fatty acid for heart and joints).
An organic acid which acts as a lipid/membrane stabilizer in the body and can aid various anti-oxidant defense systems. Taurine has many fundamental biological roles, such as conjugation of bile acids, antioxidation, osmoregulation, membrane stabilization, and modulation of calcium signaling. It is essential for cardiovascular function, and development and function of skeletal muscle, the retina, and the central nervous system. Additionally, the inhibitory GABA receptors in the brain are activated by taurine. It is used to improve mental performance and as an antioxidant.
An amino acid that is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and is able to help increase and modulate alpha brain waves. These brain waves help to produce a feeling of calm, relaxed alertness.
An α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. It is important for the development and functioning of many organs in the body. After absorbing L-tryptophan, our bodies convert it to 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), and then to serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone that transmits signals between nerve cells. Changes in the level of serotonin in the brain improve mood.
|Iron (Ferrous II Fumarate)
Important for making hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying red pigment in blood, and myoglobin, a pigment that stores oxygen in muscles. Lack of iron can cause anemia, which can result in fatigue, weakness, and irritability.
|Iodine (Potassium Iodide)
Essential for the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system to operate normally, and is required for regulating fluid balance, the body’s acid-base balance, and blood pressure.
|Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
Acts as a cofactor for the metabolism of carbohydrates, helping turn starch and sugar into the energy our bodies need, and plays an important role in nerve transmission. Also influences a variety of physiologic functions, including nervous system and muscle functioning; carbohydrate metabolism; healthy digestion; and more.
|Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Needed by the body to convert carbohydrates and fats into energy. It also helps maintain healthy skin, nervous system function and reduces the risk of heart disease and lowers harmful cholesterol while raising good cholesterol. It may also reduce the incidence of asthma-induced wheezing, and may be helpful in treating or preventing atherosclerosis, second heart attacks, Alzheimer’s disease and osteoarthritis.
|Vitamin B7 (Biotin)
Used in the body to metabolize both sugar and fat. In metabolizing sugar, biotin transports sugar from its beginning stages to its eventual conversion into usable energy. Without it as a co-factor, many enzymes do not work properly, and serious complications can occur, including varied diseases of the skin, intestinal tract, and nervous system.
|Vitamin B8 (Inositol)
Vital for health, it is a precursor of phospholipids which are a necessary component of cell membranes. This is important because phospholipids are vital for the electrical current and nutrient transport across and inside of cells. Inositol or B8 exhibits strong stress and anxiety relief properties. In fact, it has been used as a treatment for more serious cognitive imbalances such as OCD, PTSD, panic attacks, and clinical depression.
|Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid)
Crucial for proper brain function and plays an important role in mental and emotional health. It aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body’s genetic material, and is especially important when cells and tissues are growing rapidly, such as in infancy, adolescence, and pregnancy. Folic acid also works closely with Vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and help iron work properly in the body.
|Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)
Aids in the development and maintenance of red blood cells, nerve cells, and normal myelination (covering) of nerve cells. It also aids in the production of DNA and RNA, and the production of neurotransmitters. It also provides protection from neurotoxicity thanks to its role in the production of SAMe (S-adenosyl Methionine), while reduces brain fog, allowing for vast improvements in energy levels.
