Max Synapse is a supplement which promises to combat memory loss, low energy levels, and lack of focus. It’s sold by UltraMax Health, a New York City company founded in the summer of 2015. They don’t appear to have any social media presence. There are links on the company website, but they don’t go anywhere. UltraMax says that their flagship supplement will protect your brain and enhance all cognitive function, so it could be something anyone would want.
Max Synapse contains the following ingredients: Vitamin B6 (1.3mg), Vitamin B12 (1mg), N-Acetyl L-Carnitine HCI (50mg), NZ-405 Supermax Blend (459mg): Bacopa Monniera, L-Glutamine, Ginkgo Biloba, Gamma-aminobutyric acid, Huperzine A.
Capsules contain vitamins B3 and B6 along with 545 mg of something called a NooTro Blend. This blend of 9 ingredients includes GABA, L-Tyrosine, Huperzine-A, and Alpha-GPC. People often report feeling better after taking supplements with GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid). However, clinical trials have found that it’s generally ineffective when taken orally. It doesn’t have an effect except as a placebo, and thus some manufacturers have stopped including it in supplement formulas.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid used in various products and can be found in many foods. People take L-Tyrosine for depression, ADHD, narcolepsy, improving alertness, alleviating stress, and more. It’s almost a jack of all trades with its variety of brain boosting effects, and is great for penetrating the blood-brain barrier. The most common dose is 150 mg per day. Max Synapse doesn’t list how much L-Tyrosine is in its formula. Likewise, we don’t know if the amount of Alpha GPC is sufficient. The standard dose is 300 to 600 mg, although some people take up 1200 mg. It’s very unlikely that Max Synapse has enough, since their entire nootropic blend is only 545 mg. Studies show that Alpha GPC has a notable effect on cognitive decline and symptoms of Alzheimer’s. It can increase power output among athletes and could be more effective than caffeine.
