Gorilla Mind Smooth
Patented Proprietary Blend
Gorilla Mind Smooth is made in a GMP FDA-certified facility in the United States and is packed with strong, high quality, clinically proven cognitive boosters.
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol): DMAE increases the levels of acetylcholine in the brain; resulting in increased levels of processing and transmitting of information, enhancement of mental concentration and focus , better memory and elevated mood .
Phenylethylamine HCL: Naturally occurring in the nervous system, Phenylethylamine HCL acts as a neuromodulator.
In the brain, it signals the release of norepinephrine and dopamine, two hormones that greatly increase mood, sense of well-being, energy levels, and stress relief [3,4].
Phenylethylamine HCL also stimulates the release of Acetylcholine in the brain, which is critical for supporting memory, learning, focus, concentration, information recall, and a variety of other benefits .
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine: The most bio-available form of Tyrosine, N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that balances neurotransmitter levels in the brain resulting in increased energy and motivation, relief in the mind of stress and anxiety, and the improvement of mental focus and concentration [6,7,8].
L-Theanine: L-Theanine works by targeting four key neurotransmitters: GABA, Serotonin, Dopamine, and Norepinephrine.
These neurotransmitters are responsible for feelings of attention, stress, arousal, and pleasure.
By mitigating the over-activity of neurons, L-Theanine helps to calm down the brain, reduce stress, and get rid of anxiety .
This is why L-Theanine complements stimulants like caffeine so tremendously too, as it takes the edge off of stimulants that can cause jitters and over-stimulation.
L-Theanine also improves memory, focus, attention to detail, information retention, and motivation levels .
Alpha-GPC: Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (Alpha-GPC) is the highest quality and most bioavailable form of choline, meaning it will work much better and much faster than standard choline.
After crossing the blood brain barrier Alpha-GPC provides the brain with a rapidly absorbed form of choline.
It also starts aiding in the synthesis and release of acetylcholine.
The surge of quickly absorbed choline in conjunction with the release of acetylcholine causes a substantial improvement in cognitive functioning, memory, HGH levels, physical performance, concentration, focus, and information absorption/recall [11,12,13].
Bacopa Monnieri: Used as an anti-aging supplement that protects neurons in the brain from accumulative damage, Bacopa Monnieri acts as an antioxidant, cognitive enhancer, and neuroprotectant .
By increasing kinase activity in the brain, a faster rate of transmission is achieved which enhances mood, mental energy, information absorption/recall, memory, and reduces anxiety, as well as joint and muscle pain [15,16].
It may also produce mild amounts of euphoria.
Theacrine (as TeaCrine®): Theacrine is a compound that is structurally very similar to caffeine, and can exert stimulant-like effects in the body.
The key word being “stimulant-like.”
Theacrine is an amazing ingredient that allows those who can’t handle traditional stimulants like caffeine to still enjoy the benefits that caffeine can provide, without any of the tolerance build up, jitters, crashing, or stark feelings of highs and lows in energy [17,18].
It simply provides a smooth, long-lasting boost in energy with no desensitization to the compound with repetitive usage, as well as an improvement in mood, productivity, and focus [17,18,19].
Hordenine: This compound promotes focus, euphoria, mental alertness, an increased metabolic rate, as well as overall cognitive function [20, 21].
Aside from that though, one of the main purposes Hordenine serves is as a very powerful potentiator of Phenylethylamine HCL.
Monoamine Oxidase (MAO) is an enzyme in the body that breaks down Phenylethylamine, dopamine, as well as other important neurotransmitters.
Normally, Phenylethylamine HCL is only potent in the body for a very short period of time.
However, Hordenine acts as a potent MAO inhibitor, meaning it inhibits the effects of the enzyme MAO, thus preventing the breakdown of neurotransmitters from occurring, allowing Phenylethylamine HCL to exert its’ full benefits in the body, and significantly increasing its’ active life in the body .
Piperine (Black Pepper Fruit Extract): Allows the body to absorb and utilize all of the ingredients in this formula more effectively.
This ultimately results in greater bioavailability and benefit from each individual ingredient, as well as making the effects last longer [22,23,24].
Huperzine A: Huperzine A blocks the action of cholinesterase in the brain [25,26,27].
The result of this is increased levels of acetylcholine in the brain.
It also promotes neurogenesis (the birth of new neurons in the brain), protects neurons that are already in the brain from damage, and acts as a neuroprotective agent [28,29].
These high acetylcholine levels ultimately lead to greatly enhanced memory and cognitive function .
Huperzine A has been used in China as a herbal medicine for years, and it helps offset neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s via its ability to improve memory and acting as a neuroprotectant .
It also acts as a potent Somatostatin inhibitor in the body, resulting in greater HGH levels, which has a multitude of benefits for body composition and anti-aging .
