We’ve included the highest purity Bacopa Monnieri. This herb, native to Southern India, is traditionally used in Ayurveda and has demonstrated memory improvement1 and anxiety reduction2 properties.
There’s also an effective dose of Alpha GPC, a precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, studies have shown this to improve attention3 and protect against cognitive decline4.
Ginkgo Biloba and Phosphatidylserine
