Pterostilbene / Indian Kino Tree
Pterostilbene (also known as trans-3,5-dimethoxy-4-hydroxystilbene or PTE), is a naturally occurring ‘stilbene’ polyphenol antioxidant found in the bark of the Indian Kino tree (Pterocarpus marsupium) and also in small amounts within grapes, lingonberries, cranberries, blueberries. While it is readily available in its natural form, taking PTE as a supplement ensures that you receive the maximum beneficial dose of this antioxidant to reap the rewards.
Within the nootropics community Pterosilbene is quickly gaining a name for itself for its numerous beneficial effects. Among these are:
Improves Cognition & Age-Related Decline
Improves Overall Brain Function & Memory
Maintains Cardiovascular Health
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine / NALT / TYR
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, also known as NALT or NAT, is an easily absorbed, acetylated form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine. Acetylation allows the amino acid to become water soluble and thus used as a more bioavailable supplement. Where N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine still carries the physical benefits of standard L-Tyrosine such as offsetting physical fatigue & retention of muscle mass, in this document we will focus mainly on the cognitive performance benefits.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine has a number of benefits, which can be summed up as follows:
Boosts Neurotransmitters For Fight or Flight Response
Enhanced Cognitive Speed & Flexibility
Improved Performance Under Stress
Lowers Blood Pressure Under Stress

Vitamin B6 / Pyridoxine
Also known as Pyridoxine, Vitamin B6 is one of 8 water soluble B-vitamins that are vital to a healthy and high functioning brain. B6 is found in every cell of the human body and has direct impact on more than 140 enzyme activities, including affecting gene transcription and expression, the immune system, glucose regulation, and the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as melatonin, serotonin, dopamine and GABA. [source:1] Even a mild deficiency in Vitamin B6 can negatively impact neurotransmitters and lead to an overall decline in mental performance.
Vitamin B6 has been found to help the body in a multitude of ways, particularly the brain. Alongside aiding cerebral circulation through homocysteine regulation, B6 assists in the synthesis of serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, GABA and norepinephrine, enhancing alertness, mood, memory and cognition, while reducing fatigue, pain, depression and anxiety.
