1. Cognitive Function
B vitamins are essential for every aspect of brain and muscle function, with B3 and B5 being essential for neurotransmission and B5, B6 and folate for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. There is also good evidence that
supplementation with various vitamins and minerals can help maintain cognitive function.
In a systematic review and meta-analysis, bacopa monnieri improved cognitive performance, particularly speed of attention. Iron, zinc and gotu kola contributes to normal cognitive function. Whilst polyphenolic-rich blueberries are considered beneficial for cognitive performance and mood.
Schisandra has adaptogenic properties and helps physical and mental resistance. Clinical evidence suggests that a
combination agent containing rhodiola rosea and schisandra, improves attention, speed and accuracy. Studies also
indicate that rhodiola rosea can improve cognitive function and reduce mental fatigue. A recent systematic review
found evidence that catechin and epigallocatechin-3-gallate present in green tea exhibit neuroprotective activity.
Vitamin C, B6, B12, Biotin, and magnesium contribute to normal psychological function. Pantothenic acid contributes
to normal mental performance
2. Male Functional Health
Ginseng is one of the most widely used botanicals to improve energy, physical and emotional health, and wellbeing. Other mechanisms of action include the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism, delayed accumulation of metabolites, regulation of neurotransmitter function, and promotion of mitochondrial function. In addition, studies suggest Korean, Siberian, Peruvian and American Ginsengs support mental health and alleviate fatigue.
Korean Ginseng (Panax) has been reported to enhance sex performance, with data showing a positive correlation
between ginseng intake and libido. It has also been found to enhance spermatogenesis, improving the sperm quality and count in healthy individuals as well as patients with treatment-related infertility. Ginseng, along with fenugreek and ashwagandha also demonstrate consistent effects in increasing testosterone concentrations.
Peruvian Ginseng (Maca) is famous for its energising effects. In one study, the physical performance of athletes increased by 10.3% on average. It can also be used as a fertility enhancer.
3. Micronutrient Optimisation
A comprehensive spectrum of micronutrients for all-round nutritional support including 10 mcg of vitamin D in the preferred D3 form, as recommended by the UK DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH.
Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis.
Vitamin C, B3, B6, B12 and iron contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamin C, D, B6, B12, selenium, zinc and folic acid contribute to the normal function of the immune zsystem.
Nervous System Support:
Biotin, copper, iodine, magnesium and vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Muscles & Bones:
Calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese, vitamin D, and K contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. Vitamin D and magnesium contribute to the maintenance of normal muscle function.
