- Raise acetylcholine, supporting brain chemistry for learning, attention and memory;
- Optimize the powerplant mitochondria that produce energy for all brain cells;
- Support cerebral blood flow that supplies oxygen for brain energy metabolism;
- Stabilize brain cell membranes for healthy neural repair, regeneration and function.
Performance Lab® Mind Cognizin® is citicoline enhanced with next-generation nutrition technology – clinically shown to enhance brain energy, focus, attention, memory and brain health.
Cognizin® may boost brain cell membrane formation by 26%*and brain energy by 13.6%
Sharp-PS® Green(Soy-Free Phosphatidylserine), 100 mg
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a phospholipid (healthy fat) present in nearly all cells. PS is most concentrated in the brain, where it helps cognition and long-range health in many ways:
Brain cell formation
Phosphatidylserine promotes Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and serves as a building block used in multiple phases of brain regeneration, including:
- Neurogenesis, the creation of fresh new brain cells;
- Plasticity, the formation of neural connections that underlies all new learning;
- Neural repair, ongoing maintenance and upkeep of brain cells.
PS optimizes brain cell membranes for peak performance, helping with signaling molecules, receptors and enzymes involved in neurotransmission. PS has been shown to:
- Regulate brain chemicals acetylcholine, serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine;
- Detect damaged brain cells and signal the immune system to initiate their cleanup;
- Blunt stress-induced signaling that stimulates release of stress hormone cortisol.
PS supports brain energy levels; one human study linked PS supplementation to a 20.3% increase in basal ganglia/thalamus glucose metabolism.
PS bioactivities combine to provide powerful support for memory and performance-driven thinking. Researchers have linked PS supplementation to improvements in:
- Memory Storage
- Problem Solving
- Quick Recall
- Mood Balance
- Verbal Ability
Performance Lab® Mind Sharp-PS® Green is the most advanced phosphatidylserine form available.
Most PS is soy-based; Sharp-PS® Green is instead made from non-GMO sunflowers using a patented, eco-friendly process.
Performance Lab® Mind Phospholipid Stack Cognizin® + Sharp-PS® Green
Cognizin® and Sharp-PS® Green both increase brain phospholipids: Healthy fats that are used to form, repair and optimize brain cell membranes.
Together in Mind, Cognizin® + Sharp-PS® Green supply 2x support for the fluid, flexible brain cell membrane performance associated with memory, mood, learning and long-range brain health.
Ajipure® L-Tyrosine, 250 mg
During stress, intense thinking and multitasking, the brain burns quickly through brain chemicals called catecholamines: Dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.
Subsequent catecholamine depletion has been linked to stress-induced cognitive issues including brain fog, poor focus, short attention span and mental burnout.
Supplemental L-Tyrosine is suggested to help reverse these negative consequences by:
- Serving as a raw material for synthesis of performance-oriented brain chemicals;
- Stimulating the synthesis and release of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine;
- Maintaining norepinephrine levels that are typically depleted by stress.
L-Tyrosine has been clinically shown to help mental processing, memory, and overall cognitive performance under stressful conditions including sleep deprivation, distraction and multitasking.
Performance Lab® Mind Ajipure® L-Tyrosine uses patented, eco-friendly Ferment-A-Pure technology to turn non-GMO and gluten free vegetable-derived carbohydrates into clean, bioavailable amino acids.
Maritime Pine Bark Extract (95% proanthocyanidins), 75 mg
Maritime Pine Bark Extract supplies a complex of antioxidant proanthocyanidins that help the brain by:
- Signaling for release of nitric oxide (NO), which relaxes blood vessels to support blood flow to the brain and optimal delivery of micronutrients, glucose and oxygen;
- Supplying antioxidants that cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain, where they help neutralize free radicals’ cell-damaging, age-accelerating effects;
- Optimizing brain plasticity and brain cell regeneration for long-range health
Performance Lab® Mind Maritime Pine Bark Extract is standardized to 95% antioxidant proanthocyanidins, making it the most potent nootropic pine bark extract available today.
Mind is designed to support peak mental performance, making it an ideal brain supplement for students, professionals, competitive individuals, and anyone seeking to gain a mental edge across performance-driven aspects of cognition like focus, attention, alertness, processing speed, memorization and new learning.
Take 1-2 capsules of Mind with your first meal of the day, preferably with a source of dietary fat such as Performance Lab® MCT or coconut oil to assist with absorption of Mind’s phospholipid nutrients. For best results use daily and consistently.
Like all Performance Lab® supplements, Mind is designed to be safe for long-term daily use, without the need for cycling. Mind achieves this by using pure, potent ingredients that are dosed appropriately and in line with clinical research. Mind’s clean formula design – free of GMOs, gluten, soy, colorants, preservatives and other additives – is also well-tolerated by the body, and safe for long-term use.
Mind is stimulant-free by design. Instead of caffeine, Mind supplies Cognizin® Citicoline, which promotes brain energy naturally; and Pine Bark Extract, which helps nourish the brain with oxygen and glucose that assists Cognizin® in promoting peak brain ATP energy. Mind is formulated to promote alertness like stimulants do, but without jitters, crashing, and other side effects that may be associated with stimulant use. If you prefer caffeine, Mind stacks seamlessly with Performance Lab® Stim.
Racetams are popular for supporting brainpower, but do not yet have enough well-designed research studies to be included in Performance Lab® formulas.
Mind features Cognizin® as our exclusive source of choline because it offers more versatility than other forms. Cognizin® works by raising levels of Phosphatidylcholine (PC), a phospholipid for healthy brain structure; and Uridine, a nootropic for learning, memory and mood – making it a “2-in-1” choline source that has inherent advantages over all other forms of choline.
NutriGenesis® is a Performance Lab® nutrition technology innovation: Vitamins, minerals and amino acids grown in live cultures at our state-of-the-art lab.
A true biological nutrient form, NutriGenesis® closely mirrors the molecular structure of food nutrients. NutriGenesis® nutrients offer significant advantages over standard nutrient forms.
Featured in several Performance Lab® formulas, NutriGenesis® vitamins, minerals and amino acids are bioengineered to be safe, active and highly effective for overall health and performance.
Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are the most important nutrients you need to build a strong foundation for health and performance.
Performance Lab® developed NutriGenesis® to have our own in-house vitamins, minerals and amino acids to use in our own nutritional supplements.
In producing NutriGenesis®, Performance Lab® can best maintain our industry-leading quality standards for cleanliness, purity, effectiveness and eco-friendliness, across all our ultramodern formulas.
Not all vitamins, minerals and amino acids are the same. There are many nutrient forms, produced with a variety of processes. Some of the most popular nutrient forms available in supplements today include:
Whole Food Concentrates
Whole food vitamin and mineral supplements are sourced from fruits, vegetables, herbs and mushrooms. They include natural cofactors that make food nutrients so easy for the body to absorb and utilize. However, they do require extensive processing and may be made with GMOs, mass agriculture and dirty eco-destructive practices.
Isolated Chemical (USP) Nutrients
Isolated Chemical (USP) is the cheapest vitamin and mineral form found in the most basic multivitamin supplements. This synthetic form chemically alters vitamins and minerals, isolating them from their whole-food cofactors. As a result, Isolated Chemical (USP) nutrients are typically harder to absorb and less effective than whole food nutrients.
In this process, a mineral nutrient (such as iron, calcium, zinc) is bound with a chelator: An organic molecule (often an amino acid) that is large enough to enrobe the mineral. By surrounding the mineral, the chelator protects it against degradation. Chelated nutrients are highly stable and may improve nutrient uptake and utilization.
NutriGenesis® is different from traditional nutrient forms: Bioengineered to be better.
NutriGenesis® are cultured nutrients that replicate the creation of vitamins, minerals and aminos in nature.
NutriGenesis® is based on the work of Nobel Prize-winning physiologist Albert Szent Gyorgy, who theorized that nutrients presented in their naturally grown forms supply cofactors that make them more bioavailable, biologically active and effective than nutrients that are isolated.
In the NutriGenesis® process, single-cell organisms (Lactobacillus probiotics and brewer’s yeast) are seeded with micronutrients in a hydroponic growth medium.
The live single-cell organisms “eat” the micronutrients, divide and thrive. As the cultures grow, they produce fresh new NutriGenesis® vitamins, minerals and aminos within a matrix of natural cofactors. This familiar structure is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body.More on the NutriGenesis® Process
NutriGenesis® advantages over other forms:
NutriGenesis® is essentially food nutrition. Mirroring food nutrients molecule-by-molecule, our vitamins, minerals and aminos are presented in pure elemental form. Maximum nutrition: Nothing more, nothing less.
Enhanced effectiveness. Because NutriGenesis® nutrients are in food-matrix form, they are recognized by the body as nature-identical -- maximizing nutrient uptake, bioavailability and beneficial activity.
Patented and researched. The patented process behind NutriGenesis® has been shown in research to enhance nutrient absorption and retention (when compared to chemical isolates).
Cleaner and safer. NutriGenesis® is produced in a sterile, tightly controlled lab setting. NutriGenesis® is minimally processed, requiring no pesticides, herbicides or other synthetics associated with some other whole-food nutrients.
Better for the planet: The NutriGenesis® process is clean and efficient, with little carbon footprint or environmental impact – especially when compared to factory farming for phytonutrients and strip mining for minerals.
It all begins with NutriGenesis® Multi for Men and Multi for Women: Performance Lab®’s multivitamin starting point for human performance optimization.
NutriGenesis® vitamins, minerals and amino acids are also found in Performance Lab® formulas Stim, Flex, BCAA, Pre, Post and Maintain.
Beyond Performance Lab®, NutriGenesis® B-Vitamins are found in Mind Lab Pro®: the Universal Nootropic™.
