Living a healthy lifestyle in today’s world is hard. Every day presents it’s own challenges and maintaining the energy levels necessary can be draining.
The good news is, you can radically improve how you think and feel everyday by enriching your body with the right supplements.
At Avantera, we have created the perfect blend of naturally-occurring nootropics, carefully selected to give you the daily boost that enables a healthier, more vigorous life. And we can’t wait to share it with you.
Here are the 8 top reasons to start including Elevate and Unwind in you daily routine:
Nobody wants to be the one dozing off in the Zoom meeting or yawning during game night. Whether you’re in the middle of work or play, mental alertness and attention are always a plus, letting you look and feel involved.
Nootropics can be pivotal in improving several types of attention, including cognitive flexibility – how well you can switch from task to task – and focused attention.
By increasing blood flow to the brain and activating certain neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, and acetylcholine), L-Theanine and CDP Choline especially, have been shown to substantially improve attentional performance.
Avantera’s Elevate includes these two fundamental nootropics, as well as Camelia Sinensis, from green tea extract, which helps improve cognitive function by stimulating neurogenesis – the generation of neuron cells in the brain.
Just using Elevate alone will make a significant impact on your ability to focus throughout the day, but Avantera takes it a step further, knowing that another huge part of having energy is the amount and quality of sleep you’re getting. Unwind ensures that you are sleeping better and supplying your brain with the oxygen and glucose it needs to recharge.
A comprehensive approach to having consistent, healthy energy levels.
Your gut is referred to as your second brain for a reason. For a start, 90 percent of your body’s serotonin is produced in your gut - the neurotransmitter responsible for mood regulation, social behavior, appetite, digestion, sleep, memory and a number of other essential functions. Elevate contains a gut health blend including a medicinal mushroom called Lion’s Mane, a natural prebiotic that feeds the good bacteria in the gut, as shown in a 2012 study.
Turmeric Curcumin is another super nutrient included in Elevate. By increasing the levels of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), it can help modulate gut function by activating the PLC pathway.
The more we learn about Gut health with modern research, the more we understand how vital of a role it plays in your mood and cognitive function.
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in the US, affecting 40 million adults which is nearly 20 percent of the US population. In many cases, these stress and mood issues can have underlying causes that are linked to unbalanced brain chemicals, improper brain circulation and low brain energy.
As a result, by leveraging nootropics, you can elevate your brain health, gut health, and ultimately, your overall mood.
L-Theanine and Ashwagandha are two of these super nootropics included in the Elevate and Unwind blends. The former elevates levels of neurotransmitters (GABA and Serotonin) that have been shown to regulate mood and decrease stress. While the latter reduces cortisol levels in the brain, also known as the stress hormone.
If you’ve been feeling stressed, you should definitely consider adding these supplements to your daily routine.
Ever have days where you feel like your brain just isn’t working? Struggling to remember names, dates, etc. Brain fog? You may be experiencing inflammation and oxidative stress in your brain. This has a damaging impact on your brain’s ability to function.
Nootropics are a great way to make sure you clear the brain fog and start thinking clearly. Bacopa Monnieri specifically, has been found to boost cognitive function by reducing inflammation in the brain, increasing blood flow to the brain, and encouraging the production of major neurotransmitters (acetylcholine, serotonin, dopamine).
In fact, double blind placebo-controlled studies have found that bacopa substantially improves your working memory. A powerful skill in today’s professional environment.
Healthy sleep is vital to peak brain performance, and more people are realizing this. Nootropics work especially well for this because they encourage increased cognitive function while optimizing healthy sleep at the same time.
They enable healthy sleep, not by knocking you out, but by promoting a calm, relaxed state of mind that lulls you into a restful sleep. And nothing is better for peak brain performance than a well-rested mind.
There are several nootropic compounds that aid in healthy sleep. Unwind contains several specially-selected sleep-beneficial nootropics, including Passion Flower, chamomile flower, and Magnesium Glycinate.
Magnesium Glycinate is recognized as a natural NDMA antagonist and GABA agonist. Both of these are important biochemical reactions that have a relaxant effect and encourage better sleep time, sleep efficiency and sleep onset latency. Passion Flower also helps relieve insomnia and gently lowers brain activity so you can rest and recharge.
Now more than ever, protecting your immune system is vital. Fueling your body with the right nutrients is the most effective way to stay healthy and prevent illness. Both Elevate and Unwind contain essential nutrients for immune health.
Zinc, specifically has been shown to improve immune system function, improve heart health, and slow macular degeneration.
Many experts believe that inflammation is at the root of all disease. Inflammation can be caused by stress, toxins, harmful pathogens or a poor diet, amongst others. While some inflammation is normal as part of the body’s natural response to external threats - chronic inflammation can be deadly.
Turmeric, a major source of the polyphenol curcumin, has been shown in research to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric along with other super nootropics taken every day in our Elevate supplement, will aide your body’s fight against inflammation and help support long term brain health.
Antioxidants are your body’s defense against danger, think of it as your own little army. They fight free radicals and stressors, to keep you healthy.
Both Elevate and Unwind are specially formulated with nootropics that have antioxidant properties known to protect brain cells from the degenerating effects of free radicals. Lion’s Mane Mushroom especially supports healthy brain structure and protects your brain against unhealthy proteins.
Bacopa monnieri is another dietary antioxidant in our Elevate supplement that has been shown in several studies to improve oxidative stress, particularly in the brain.
Welcome to a better you!
