Discovering the World of Nootropics

Cognitive processes can be facilitated by both pharmacological and nutritional substances nootropics.

From the Greek nous (mind) and tropein (to turn, to awaken), a nootropic is a natural or synthetic substance that improves cognitive performance, optimizing mental functions such as memory, concentration, attention, and motivation. Also known as brain boosters or cognitive enhancers, nootropics enhance the nervous system’s functionality and, at the same time, keep it healthy. They act as vasodilators of cerebral blood vessels and improve circulation, ensuring the correct supply of oxygen and nutrients arrives.


Nootropics also reduce the inflammatory state, protecting brain function from toxins and minimizing the aging effect. In fact, unlike many other cells in the body, neurons have no proliferative activity and do not replicate.

Nootropics also stimulate the production of new neuronal cells, facilitating improved mental abilities and memory, along with neuroplasticity, i.e., the ability to respond and adapt to external stimuli related to physiological or pathological changes.

Finally, nootropics influence the concentration and response of certain neurotransmitters such as dopamine, acetylcholine, and glutamate, stimulating release and modulating the activity of receptors.1

In developing the Brain 5:5 supplement, 5 active nootropic ingredients were combined to enhance the Five principal cognitive processes supporting neurotrophic, neuroprotective, and neuroplastic mechanisms, with preventive action inhibiting the oxidative and inflammatory stress associated with neuronal disorders and favoring the control of mood and anxiety, which in turn impact cognitive abilities.

The exclusive Brain 5:5 combination contains the following high-quality, titrated active ingredients, the result of extensive research:

1. Magnolia Extract

2. Nervonic Acid

3. Sialic Acid (N-acetyl-D-neuraminic acid)

4. Microencapsulated Ginkgo

5. Citicoline-Cognizin®
