Promotes Better Memory, Concentration and Alertness
For almost 3,000 years, Ayurvedic medical practitioners in India have used a native plant to improve “memory and intelligence”. This plant is bacopa monnieri.
Modern science is validating the instincts of those ancient Indian practitioners in clinical studies. In TrueRecall™, we include the brand of bacopa with the most clinical studies - Synapsa®.
Synapsa® is a mulitpatented bacopa ingredient developed based on 30 years of research. In seven clinical studies, Synapsa® has been shown to promote improved cognitive function and working memory when taking the amount in a single serving of TrueRecall™ for several months.
In addition, when taking the amount found in two servings of TrueRecall™, Synapsa® has been shown to increase alertness and boost mood after just one hour.
Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is known as the “calming neurotransmitter” because it helps your brain relax during stressful situations so you can better focus and concentrate.
Most GABA used in supplements is synthetic – which doesn’t work as well as natural GABA. The premier natural GABA ingredient is PharmaGABA® - which is made using the same fermentation process used to make the Korean food kimchi.
In numerous clinical studies, PharmaGABA® has been shown to improve performance and concentration during stressful situations – and the effects can typically be felt after just 30 minutes.
Sensoril® is a patented extract of the ashwagandha plant and has been shown to help maintain normal levels of the “stress hormone”, cortisol resulting in better concentration levels, reduced forgetfulness, better energy levels and less symptoms of everyday stress.
Quatrefolic® is a highly stable form of active folate and already in the 5-methylfolate form your body uses – no conversion is necessary. This makes Quatrefolic® up to seven times more efficient than the folic acid found in most supplements.
Similarly, TrueRecall™ contains the active forms of vitamins B12 and B6.
Synapsa®: Shown to Boost Cognitive Function in 7 Studies
For almost 3,000 years, Ayurvedic medical practitioners in India have used a native plant to improve “memory and intelligence.” This plant is bacopa monnieri.
Modern science is showing those ancient Indian practitioners were spot on - bacopa may indeed offer you a treasure chest of brain benefits. But to get those benefits you need high quality bacopa and you need to get the right amount each day.
That’s why for TrueRecall™ we included the brand of bacopa with the most clinical studies which is Synapsa®.
Synapsa® is a mulit-patented bacopa ingredient developed based on 30 years of research. With Synapsa®, quality is everything - and it is controlled from “seed to shelf”, meaning from planting in India through final storage.
As important, Synapsa® has been shown to offer a wide variety of brain performance benefits in seven clinical studies - with more on the way. In fact, the Synapsa® studies show it offers both longer term and “acute” (after 1 hour) benefits.
The standard serving of Synapsa® for longer term benefits is 320mg (one serving or two TrueRecall™ capsules). On days where you really need to focus, taking Synapsa® (two servings or four TrueRecall™ capsules) has been shown to make a significant difference.
Some of the potential benefits found in the Synapsa® clinical studies include:
PharmaGABA®: Feel the Difference in Just 30 Minutes
One of the reasons you may struggle to think clearly and remember things is your brain can’t relax because it is stressed.
Stress occurs for lots of reasons - hectic schedules, fears about your health or family, being in a situation that makes you nervous or anxious, feeling tired, pressure at work or worries about money. Even exercise, a good thing, stresses your body.
This makes it hard to focus, relax and concentrate - all hurting your memory. Your body has a natural way to remedy this situation. It uses an amino acid called GABA (Gamma AminoButyric Acid).
GABA works to restore order so your brain can relax and you can focus and concentrate. It’s been called nature’s “calming neurotransmitter” because it inhibits transmission of nervous feelings caused by stress and anxiety.
Your body can make GABA if it has the basic building block available, which is the amino acid L-glutamine.
If you want to get GABA directly from food, then you can drink tea or eat fermented foods - such as yogurt and certain cheeses. The fermented Korean cabbage dish kimchi is also very high in GABA.
Since it’s not easy to get from food, for many people taking a supplement with GABA is a good idea. Until recently, the only GABA available for supplements was a synthetic chemically made GABA. And it just doesn’t work nearly as well as natural GABA.
This challenge was solved with the introduction of natural PharmaGABA® - which comes from Japan and is made using the same fermentation process used to make Korean kimchi. Since your body recognizes the natural PharmaGABA®, it can put it to work almost immediately.
In clinical studies, PharmaGABA® has been shown to help within 30 minutes of taking it - in both adults and children.
In fact, one of the first studies involved fifth grade students - and those taking PharmaGABA® before a math test significantly improved their scores.
In addition to analyzing test scores, the researchers collected saliva samples before, during and after the test. The saliva samples confirmed that those taking the PharmaGABA® were more relaxed because they secreted less of a stress marker called CgA.
Another study of adults aged 26 to 33 compared taking PharmaGABA® to a caffeinated energy drink. Many folks think that the way to feel more alert and focused is to drink a caffeinated beverage. But in this study, those taking PhamaGABA® outperformed those taking the energy drink by 25% in a video shooting game (an indication of focus and concentration).
PharmaGABA® works by promoting relaxing “alpha waves” in your brain while at the same time deceasing the anxiety causing “beta waves.” Whereas caffeine may help you feel awake, PharmaGABA® has been shown to make your brain more alert.
PharmaGABA®’s “relaxation response” has been shown to help in many other ways:
TrueRecall™ contains 100mg of PharmaGABA® per serving, the same amount used in most of the clinical studies.
Sensoril®: Helps Protect Your Body from The Effects of Stress
Like many substances in your body, when you have normal levels of cortisol it does some very good things. Some of these include helping to keep blood sugar under control, improving memory and reducing your sensitivity to pain.
Cortisol gets released when your body encounters a stressful situation - hence why it’s called the “stress hormone.” And because we live in a stressful society, many people have elevated levels of cortisol - which over time can lead to negative health consequences.
High cortisol levels may accelerate the aging process and cause you to feel tired, make it harder for your brain to function, lower immune system function, is a reason for weight gain and even accelerates bone loss.
To help promote normal cortisol levels, TrueRecall™ includes an ashwaganda plant extract called Sensoril®.
Sensoril® was invented by Fulbright Scholar Dr. Shibnath Ghosal - and it has been clinically shown to help keep cortisol in balance.
The ashwaganda plant used to make Sensoril® is known as an “adapatogen” - meaning it helps the body return to a balanced state. So if your cortisol levels are normal, Sensoril® doesn’t cause them to plummet to below normal. It’s there to help keep cortisol in balance and boost levels of energizing DHEA.
The benefits of Sensoril® have been demonstrated in 11 clinical studies involving human beings. These include reducing stress, boosting energy, promoting joint health, improving mental acuity and concentration and supporting normal cardiovascular function.
Quatrefolic®: “Active” Folate Your Body Can Put to Work
The vitamin B9 is commonly known as folate. This vitamin is found in dark green leafy vegetables or “foliage”- which led to the name folate.
As you may know, folate is not typically found in supplements or fortified foods. Instead, most companies use a man made synthetic form of B9 called folic acid.
For folic acid to be useful, your body needs to convert it to the active form of folate called 5-methylfolate (5-MTHF). And that brings us to the first problem with folic acid - up to 50% of Americans can’t make this conversion because we’re not genetically programmed to do so.
If you have this problem, folic acid does not help regulate homocysteine and worse, the folic acid may accumulate in your body. This can lead to other health problems or increase free radical damage.
Second, even if this conversion is not a problem for you, the synthetic folic acid can’t cross your “blood brain" barrier which means your brain can’t optimally use folic acid.
Third, another shortcoming of folic acid is it may mask a vitamin B12 deficiency. This can put you at greater risk for conditions like anemia or nerve damage.
So why do most supplement companies use folic acid? The short answer is because it’s dirt cheap. Using real active folate is a lot more expensive because it’s hard to keep stable in a supplement bottle or food product.
You won’t find folic acid in TrueRecall™. Instead you get enhanced 5-methylfolate, the active form of folate your body uses. The brand name of this ingredient - which is made in Italy - is Quatrefolic®.
Here are the benefits of Quatrefolic® compared to folic acid:
On top of this Quatrefolic® is a highly stable form of active folate - so it will not turn rancid in the bottle.
