APEX is a complete brain health stack combining several of the best natural nootropics into an easy to take once a day formula.
What's in APEX?
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) improves memory and cognition under acute stress. It helps improve decision-making, ‘flow state’ and creativity, cognitive flexibility, and working memory. NALT is a great addition to any nootropic stack, especially if you’re dealing with ADHD or ADD.
L-Tyrosine supports healthy glandular function and stress response because it helps with the synthesis of thyroid hormone and epinephrine (adrenalin).
Studies have found tyrosine to be useful for cold, fatigue, prolonged work, stress, sleep deprivation, and those suffering with hypothyroidism.
The typical dose for N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) is 300 – 500 mg twice per day. This dose can be taken all at once, or dosed throughout the day.
L-Tyrosine is isolated and derived from foods such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, beans, nuts, oats, and wheat.
Many consider Bacopa Monnieri to be the best nootropic available today. Bacopa Monnieri is used to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress. It’ll boost memory, concentration and reaction time. And is used for neuroprotection, and to balance neurotransmitters.
Bacopa Monnieri is an adaptogen*. It helps prevent the chemical and physical effects of stress. Instead of just suppressing them like many modern antidepressants.
Bacopa Monnieri is one of the best nootropics for studying. Researchers at Banaras Hindu University in India showed Bacopa as effective for anxiety as the benzodiazepine drug lorazepam. And unlike benzodiazepines, Bacopa did not cause memory loss. But in fact, it boosted cognition.
Dosage recommendations for Bacopa Monnieri with 45% bacosides is 450 mg.
Bacopa monnieri is a perennial, creeping herb native to the wetlands of southern and Eastern India, Australia, Europe, Africa, Asia, and North and South America. It is known by the common names water hyssop, waterhyssop, brahmi, thyme-leafed gratiola, herb of grace, and Indian pennywort.
Ginkgo Biloba has been used for thousands of years to boost mental alertness, improve cerebral circulation, and the overall function of the brain.
As a nootropic, Ginkgo has been shown to be particularly effective in elderly memory loss, slow thinking and reasoning, and tinnitus. One study shows significant improvement in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer patients. Most noticeable in adults suffering cognitive decline, Ginkgo Biloba seems to improve short term memory and recall. It’s also effective in reducing stress and anxiety, and boosting mood.
Dosage of Ginkgo Biloba is typically 120 – 240 mg. per day with food. Caution should be taken because Ginkgo can increase internal bleeding in some users.
The only source of ginkgo is the ginkgo tree. Most ginkgo supplements are derived from the leaves.
Many consider it the best nootropic when combined with caffeine for the synergistic effect of lowering blood pressure, rejuvenate and relax, boost thinking ability, improve focus and change your mood. Since it easily crosses the blood-brain barrier, L-Theanine works quickly to increase dopamine and serotonin. The “feel good” chemicals in your brain.
Caffeine jitters are reduced when combined with L-Theanine.
Dosing L-Theanine as a nootropic is 250 – 500 mg and it is water soluble.
L-Theanine is an amino acid which naturally occurs in green tea and oolong tea.
As one of the best nootropics around, this adaptogen* helps reduce stress and fatigue, increase energy, alertness and stamina, while boosting mental performance under periods of chronic stress. Research shows Rhodiola Rosea can increase attention to detail-oriented tasks by improving concentration over a prolonged period. Making it one of the best nootropics for studying.
Rhodiola Rosea boosts mood by influencing serotonin and norepinephrine levels in your brain, and the feel-good opioids like beta-endorphins. It also helps in neurogenesis by repairing and growing new neurons. As well as activating the synthesis and re-synthesis of ATP, your body and brain cell’s main energy source.
Dosage of Rhodiola Rosea is from 150 – 200 mg. per day.
Rhodiola Rosea is a plant that grows at high altitudes and
in cold regions of the world.
Panax Ginseng is used as a memory booster, improves mood, lower anxiety levels, and boosts stamina and endurance.
Nootropic users above 40 find the most benefit in Ginseng.
A good starting dose is 100 mg per day.
Panax ginseng is native to southeast Asia. Other species include American Ginseng and Siberian Ginseng. Each have unique characteristics.
*Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that are marketed as helping the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological.
