Description Usage Supplement Facts Cognitive Aminos provides amino acid precursors for healthy neurotransmitter activity, supporting optimal mental function and healthy mood.* Age-related decreases in levels of several amino acids compromise cognitive function. Amino acids are important intermediates in the production of neurotransmitters in the brain and are involved in neuromodulating activities. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid naturally synthesized in the body. It is the precursor of the neurotransmitters l-dopa, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, supporting mood and mental clarity. DL-Phenylalanine provides a mixture of two essential amino acids, d-phenylalanine neurotransmitter support. A separate pathway allows both D- and L-phenylalanine to support levels of the mood-elevating compound phenylethylamine, a function not provided by L-tyrosine. The serotonin precursor L-tryptophan is included to support emotional well-being, relaxation and restful sleep. In a double blind placebo-controlled study, l-tryptophan supported healthy emotional processing and promoted positive outlook in women. Taurine is considered an inhibitory amino acid, helping to maintain healthy glutamate and other excitatory amino acid activity in the brain. This provides neuroprotective action important for maintaining and l-phenylalanine. In the body, L-phenylalanine converts to tyrosine, enhancing healthy brain cell function. Acetyl-l-carnitine plays an important role in multiple metabolic pathways in the brain. It also contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and may support dopamine receptor function. As a result, acetyl-l-carnitine plays a role in memory, attention, mental clarity, and mood support. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
