Circulation and Oxygen to the Brain
The sustained feeling of *extra oxygen* is what many Braino users notice first. It is oxygen therapy for the brain.
Vinpocetine, a derivative of the periwinkle extract Vincamine, is a major nutraceutical in Braino. The O in Braino is for oxygen, and much of the oxygen effect comes from the vinpocetine activity.
Vinpocetine is shown to improve cerebral blood flow, to increase brain glucose levels, to protect neurons from oxygen starvation, to increase tolerance of the brain toward diminished blood flow, and to boost oxygen utilization by the brain.
The brain uses much of the body’s oxygen, and the oxygen boost is something you can really feel, especially when combined with the other activities of Braino.
Vinpocetine enhances memory in people suffering from cognitive deterioration and also in young people with healthy brains.
Vinpocetine increases production of norepinephrine (the brain’s adrenaline, also called noradrenaline) and dopamine (a deficiency of which is associated with Parkinson’s disease). Vinpocetine increases serotonin (neurotransmitter involved in sleep, depression, memory, response to stress) and the concentration of acetylcholine (important memory neurotransmitter).
This powerful extract comes from Hungary, where it is used for the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders and symptoms related to senility. It helps improve both eyesight and hearing problems involving cerebral circulation.
Vinpocetine is an extremely effective brain supplement and should be one of the key ingredients to look for in a blend of quality brain supplements.
PhosphatidylSerine for Brain Cell Structure
Braino contains a proprietary PhosphatidylSerine (PS) complex that consists of vegetarian PhosphatidylSerine, along with other related naturally occurring phospholipids: PhosphatidylCholine, PhosphatidylEthanolomine and PhosphatidylInositol.
PhosphatidylSerine is the premier nutrient for restoring youthful brain function and may be the single most important brain supplement for achieving full mental capacity.
Research shows that PhosphatidylSerine restores the function of worn-out nerve cells and reverses age-related memory decline.
PhosphatidylSerine is concentrated in brain-cell membranes (the myelin sheath) and makes up about 70% of the nerve tissue mass in a young healthy brain, but these levels can decline significantly with brain aging.
In people with optimal brain health, PhosphatidylSerine is manufactured in the brain in sufficient quantities. But people with aging or poorly functioning brains or with imperfect diets may have reduced capacity to produce endogenous PhosphatidylSerine.
Most people may need to take a PhosphatidylSerine supplement to inhibit brain aging and achieve optimal brain function.
PhosphatidylSerine is extremely bioavailable. The effects of PhosphatidylSerine are cumulative and sustained, and relatively low doses taken over a period of time may produce excellent results. (Braino contains a very significant dose.) Although some people notice immediate improvements, the greatest results are achieved over time.
Results from 17 major, double-blind clinical studies prove that PhosphatidylSerine boosts memory, concentration, learning, word recall and mood in middle-aged and elderly subjects with dementia or age-related cognitive decline.
PhosphatidylSerine has a wide range of neurological activity. PhosphatidylSerine increases acetylcholine, dopamine and norepinephrine, and boosts the activity of nerve growth factor (NGF), which oversees the health of cholinergic neurons.
PhosphatidylSerine is important for brain-cell membrane fluidity and integrity, and for communication across synapses between neurons.
PhosphatidylSerine (along with the related phospholipids in Braino) supports the myelin sheath that insulates neurons and aids the storage, recycling and action of neurotransmitters. Most neurotransmitter activity occurs on or within the myelin sheath.
Dysfunction and deterioration of the myelin sheath are associated with Multiple Sclerosis. Myelin damage in otherwise healthy people could be mistaken as early symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.
PhosphatidylSerine also supports anti-aging by improving response to stress. PhosphatidylSerine is shown to reduce anxiety and to increase socialization and long-term memory.
Acetylcholine Brain Supplements
Braino brain supplements contain major support for acetylcholine (acetyl-choline), which is the key neurotransmitter for memory enhancement and communication between brain cells.
Combined with pantothenic acid, the choline in Braino converts to acetylcholine, a catecholamine neurohormone and neurotransmitter that carries nerve impulses between brain cells.
Acetylcholine is important for the formation of memories, learning ability, concentration, mood and overall mental function. Low levels of this neurotransmitter are associated with memory problems and learning difficulties in aging brains.
Some types of mental impairment, such as that found in Alzheimer’s patients, are characterized by degeneration of acetylcholine producing neurons.
People with Alzheimer’s have low levels of acetylcholine, and some of the symptoms associated with age-related cognitive dysfunction (e.g., forgetting words or names or where you left your keys) may really be symptoms of acetylcholine deficiency.
Acetylcholine levels tend to decrease with age and are related to brain aging.
Cholinergic support is an extremely important brain-aging strategy for boosting memory, verbal ability and communication between brain cells.
Choline also supports brain structure, since it is used in the building and repair of brain-cell membranes.
The choline in Braino also helps protect dendrites, the finger-like brain-cell projections that reach out to other brain cells. And choline helps restore communication between brain cells when old pathways are broken.
Choline supplements may help both children and adults with attention deficit.
Choline comes in various forms and is usually a basic ingredient in comprehensive brain supplements. Choline is particularly effective when combined with Huperzine.
The choline in Braino does not produce the fishy body odor associated with some choline supplements.
Superior Huperzine A
Huperzine-A (Hup-A) is an isolated extract of Chinese Club Moss (huperzia serrata) that inhibits the destruction of acetylcholine by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Huperzine greatly magnifies the effectiveness of supplemented choline.
In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 58% of Alzheimer’s patients taking 200 mcg per day of Hup-A achieved significant improvement in cognitive and memory function.
Hup-A is shown to enhance memory in Alzheimer’s patients and in adolescents. Huperzine-A supports mental focus, eyesight and hearing.
For more information on Huperzine and other brain nutrients for school-age children, we recommend the book titled Control Hyperactivity/ADD Naturally.
Braino contains a premium whole-herb extract of Chinese Club Moss, which includes a standardized full dose of Hup-A, along with Hup-B, Hup-C and a full spectrum of other naturally occurring alkaloids and triterpenoids that support the activity of the Hup-A component.
The Club Moss extract in Braino has a balance of active constituents not found in isolated Hup-A extracts. Isolated extracts will not have the same effectiveness as full-spectrum brain herbs.
Unlike the popular isolated Hup-A extracts, the full-spectrum extract has undergone long-term testing in man and has been known in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years.
Brain Cell Regeneration
Bacopa Monnieri (Bacopa) is a brain herb used in Ayurvedic medicine to help synthesize neurons and strengthen worn-out brain cells.
Many brain supplements are synergistic with other brain supplements that are effective on related brain structure or function. For example, when combined with PhosphatidylSerine, Bacopa is an especially powerful supplement for repairing damage to brain cells and other nerve tissue.
Bacopa is also called Brahmi and is traditionally used to strengthen memory and to suppress stress, anxiety and fatigue. Bacopa is used in India to improve intellectual function in children.
Acetyl-l-Carnitine (ALC) is another nutrient in Braino that supports circulation and oxygen to the brain cells. It is a brain protector that supports healthy cerebral blood flow and may prevent neural impairment from oxygen deprivation.
A naturally occurring amino acid, Acetyl-l-Carnitine is prescribed in Europe for neurological disorders.
The main function of Acetyl-l-Carnitine is transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria for use in producing cellular energy. The mitochondria are the energy powerhouses where 95% of cellular energy occurs.
Acetyl-l-Carnitine is a neural energizer important for maintaining youthful cellular energy metabolism.
Acetyl-l-Carnitine is an antioxidant that helps raise dopamine and acetylcholine levels and improves cell-membrane fluidity, memory and learning.
Acetyl-l-Carnitine supports brain-cell survival and growth by enhancing the effects of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which is important for neuron maintenance.
Acetyl-l-Carnitine supplements are sometimes advertised as wonder nutrients that work amazingly well as single-ingredient brain supplements; however, Acetyl-l-Carnitine works far better when combined with other brain supplements.
DMAE, Anti-Aging Brain Food
DMAE is an antioxidant and membrane stabilizer with widespread activity. It may improve daytime energy, mood, personality, attentiveness, concentration, and sleep quality.
DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) supports the building and repair of cellular membranes, especially in the brain and central nervous system.
Also known as Deanol, DMAE is a natural substance found in brain foods such as sardines, anchovies and salmon. It used in Europe for children and adults with attention deficit.
DMAE increases mental performance and focus. It is so effective as a nerve supplement, it is used in cutting-edge skin creams to energize the nerves in the skin and promote muscle tone!
DMAE is becoming popular for both internal and external use to improve muscle tone and contraction by releasing acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction — the microscopic space where the nerve acts on the underlying muscle.
Internal supplementation with DMAE may provide an energized feeling in the skin like nerves tingling in the sunshine, a feeling you may remember from childhood.
Norepinephrine, the Brain’s Adrenaline
Braino contains major support for norepinephrine, the brain’s version of the energy hormone adrenaline.
Norepinephrine (also called noradrenaline) is the energizing brain chemical released by caffeine. Caffeine supplements (coffee, tea, colas, pep pills) deplete norepinephrine levels.
When norepinephrine levels are diminished, caffeine will no longer give a kick and the user will experience caffeine burnout.
Norepinephrine stores are normally replenished during sleep. But targeted supplementation with select amino acids and vitamin cofactors can also boost stored norepinephrine.
Norepinephrine support makes caffeine supplements work better.
Amino Acid Brain Supplements for Brain Chemistry
L-Tyrosine is a precursor for norepinephrine, dopamine and two of the thyroid hormones. Tyrosine (combined with sufficient vitamin C and vitamin B6 cofactors) is excellent for enhancing mental energy levels.
L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that can be converted to Tyrosine to support norepinephrine and dopamine levels. L-Phenylalanine supplementation can improve alertness and assertiveness, oppose depression, and may function as a daytime growth hormone releaser.
Tyrosine may be faster-acting than phenylalanine, but phenylalanine has unique activities. Depending on an individual’s brain disposition, one of these amino-acid brain supplements may be more effective than the other at improving one’s neurotransmitter profile.
D/L-Phenylalanine is a 50/50 mixture of the L and D forms of phenylalanine. D-phenylalanine has different activity from L-phenylalanine and slows the breakdown of endorphins, which may help persons in chronic pain or with addictions.
D/L-Phenylalanine is also known as DLPA.
Combined with the oxygenating brain supplements in Braino, DLPA contributes an incredible feeling of contentment and healthy mental balance.
L-Glycine has a calming effect on the brain and may also be a growth hormone releaser. Glycine combines with many toxic substances, converting them to harmless forms that are then excreted.
L-Taurine is an antioxidant amino acid that helps regulate electrical impulses in the body, brain, and heart. Taurine is found abundantly in the excitable tissues of the central nervous system, where it is thought to have a regulating influence.
Taurine inhibits the caffeine jitters that some people experience with norepinephrine boost and is used in popular energy drinks in combination with sugar, caffeine and niacin.
Proprietary Green Tea Extract
Braino contains a super-premium, proprietary green tea extract that lends unspecified activity to the brain supplements formula.
Green tea is an extremely complex plant with many active constituents. The benefits of green tea depend on the strain, growth conditions, blend and preparation. Green tea is an antioxidant that is shown to help protect the brain from neurotoxins, such as MSG and aspartame.
Green tea contains naturally occurring caffeine (theine) and related caffeine-like compounds, theobromine and theophylline. Green tea also supplies catechins that inhibit the breakdown of norepinephrine, causing a more sustained lift.
Green tea content includes polyphenols and theanine, a novel compound that contributes mental alertness combined with a peaceful feeling of contentment.
Vitamin B Complex
The B-complex vitamins support neurotransmitter and nerve-cell health, improve response to stress, and exhibit antioxidant activity. Sometimes called brain vitamins or memory vitamins, these are included in the Braino formula for their own brain vitamin activity and as cofactors for the other brain supplements.
Capsules, Never Tablets . . . Never, Never, Never
The nutrients contained in Braino are all superior, and for that reason, they are put in quality vegetarian capsules, not tablets.
Tablets are slow to break down and inhibit the release of the ingredients.
Tablets contain various glues to hold them together and dissolvers to break down the glues.
Tablets are made with heat and pressure that could damage the brain supplements.
Capsules are more expensive and harder to make, but capsules are superior in every way.

Brain Supplements on the Internet
You may have noticed a large number of brain supplements marketed on the internet lately. Many of these popped up in early-to-mid-2012 and appear to be from internet marketing experts who have discovered “brain supplements” as a niche term for gaming the search engines. We find that some of these sites offer supplements that are gimmicky or that are not really related to the brain.
Rest assured that Amazon Nutrition has specialized in premium brain supplements since the 1990s, and the current version of Braino is BY FAR the best brain supplements formula we have ever seen. Before you buy any brain supplements on the internet (or anywhere else), please take a good look at Braino.
