Neuro Optimizer Ingredients
Neuro Optimizer contains the following ingredients: Folic Acid, Cytidine 5′- diphosphocholine, Phosphatidylserine, Acetyl L-Carnitine, L-Glutamine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Taurine, Phosphatidylcholine, Silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), and cellulose.
Neuro Optimizer is a blend of amino-acids and other nutrients designed to support the health of the brain.
Acetyl L Carnitine (ALCAR) is one of these nutrients, known for its antioxidant properties. It is also a part of the biosynthesis of Acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which stimulates attention, short-term memory, and ensures a deep sleep. Research so far has focused on demonstrating the benefits of ALCAR on Alzheimer’s disease symptoms, old age memory loss, mood disorders (depression), and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and cognitive impairment.
Alpha Lipoic Acid or ALA is a fatty acid. The substance is naturally produced and an essential part of every human cell. It plays two important functions; it turns glucose into energy and is a powerful anti-oxidant. As an antioxidant, ALA is particularly important because it has the ability to regenerate other anti-oxidants including Vitamin C and Glutathione. Therapeutic benefits, although not completely studied scientifically, include stroke prevention, dementia prevention and treatment, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetic neuropathy and mild memory impairment. Side effects of ALA are rare and usually manifest as rashes.
Consumers find Neuro Optimizer to be effective in many aspects, including those for which it is advertised. The manufacturer recommends taking 4 capsules per day with juice or water between meals. No side effects or precautions are mentioned.
