These ingredients are specifically blended to unlock all brain limitations and optimize as many as possible brain functions and brain pathways. The potency of some of the natural ingredients used in the formulation of Brainology can be found in the descriptions below:

L-Theanine

L-Theanine is one of the active compounds you will find in Brainology. It has shown high nootropic promise in numerous human chemical trials. The compound helps increase activity of alpha brainwaves, a substance that is associated with a state of wakeful relaxation and enhanced creativity. Some of the potential nootropic benefits of L-Theanine include its ability to instill a state of calmness, tranquility, sharp attention, alertness, and focus when it accesses the brain region. It also protects neurons from damages, thereby helping people to maintain clear thoughts as they age on. Overall, the L-theanine in Brainology helps support a robust brain health.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine ( ALC)

Acetyl-L-Cartinine has shown much potential for boosting brainpower. It opens the
blood-brain barriers, and allows the unique blend of Brainology to reach the brain
nerves and cells. This function helps improve mood, learning and memory. As a
naturally occurring amino-acid, it is an important compound in any food or
supplement, especially for the seniors looking to improve their brain functions. Of
course, Acetyl-L-Cartinine is one of the substances that make Brainology really
worth your investment.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is one of the B vitamins with great potentials for the brain health. It has shown high potential for the proper brain development in kids as well as for proper brain functions in people of all ages. But, more of vitamin B6 is needed by adults above age 50, since their bodies have less energy to absorb the B6 vitamin into the body.

Whether you're a victim of head injury or you're just low on brain energy, taking proteinous foods such as fish, meet, bean, etc., will, most likely, give you your share of the vitamin B6 needed by your body to renew your brainpower. But, the results for you may not be instant. That's why you need the formula that works!

So if you need instant restoration of your mental strength, you don't have to look any further, Brainology is the magic formula for you! It is your dependable ally when it comes to reviving of the brain power. The vitamin B6 in Brainology combines with other natural ingredients to give you an instant blast of your mental performance.
