Sharp-PS® Green
  • Brain Regeneration
  • Brain Protection
  • Brain Energy
  • Brain Chemicals

Brain Bioactivities: PS is a phospholipid compound that comprises 15% of the brain’s fats. It is concentrated in brain cell membranes, where it helps maintain fluidity, optimises receptors, and promotes neurotransmitters like acetylcholine and dopamine. It supports brain cell energy production by enhancing glucose metabolism. It may increase nerve growth factor (NGF) to support brain cell creation, maintenance and repair. PS also helps immune cells dispose of damaged, toxic brain cells, sparing neighbouring brain cells from collateral damage.

Potential Nootropic Benefits: PS may sharpen memory, slow cognitive decline, and promote a positive-minded outlook. It has shown promise for helping elderly with brain degeneration, apparently slowing the progression of memory loss while helping with mood, anxiety, socialisation and mental clarity. As a result, PS is the only nootropic with an FDA-qualified claim for reducing cognitive decline risk.

  • Mind Lab Pro®’s Sharp PS® Green is a soy-free, non-GMO, eco-friendly phosphatidylserine derived from sunflower lecithin.

L-Tyrosine 175 mg

as N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT)

  • Brain Protection
  • Brain Chemicals

Brain Bioactivities: L-Tyrosine is an amino acid compound used to synthesise catecholamine neurotransmitters involved in memory, mood and mental processing, including dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Animal research suggests L-Tyrosine may counter the impact of brain stress, potentially helping to support synthesis of neurotransmitters that are depleted by high-pressure thinking.


Potential Nootropic Benefits: Human clinical research has suggested L-Tyrosine may help to promote working memory under multitasking conditions and optimise mental performance under high stress, fatigue and sleep deprivation. In addition to its reputation as a nootropic for maintaining mental performance under stress, L-Tyrosine has recently drawn interest as an attention and focus-oriented nootropic.

  • Mind Lab Pro®’s N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine is the best form for brain health: Easy to absorb and bioavailable, it delivers more nootropic activity than plain Tyrosine.

L-Tyrosine was found to enhance mental performance with greater benefits recorded as tasks progressed from easier (1-BACK) to more difficult (2-BACK).

L-Theanine 100 mg

as Suntheanine®

  • Brain Waves
  • Brain Protection
  • Brain Chemicals

Brain Bioactivities: L-Theanine helps to increase activity of alpha brainwaves, which are associated with a state of wakeful relaxation and enhanced creativity. It seems to settle excitable neurotransmitters while promoting calming neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine and GABA. L-Theanine has been suggested by researchers to modulate the brain’s ”attention circuitry.” It may also protect neurons from damage, potentially helping to maintain clear thinking during the aging process.

Potential Nootropic Benefits: L-Theanine may instill a state of calm, relaxed tranquility while simultaneously sharpening attention, alertness and focus. It is used for studying, new learning, creative problem solving, art, or other tasks that require quiet contemplation. L-Theanine also helps to reduce the harsh jittery side effects of caffeine.

Mind Lab Pro®’s premium Suntheanine® supplies 100% pure L-isomer-Theanine. Suntheanine® has been shown in human clinical research to enhance Alpha brainwaves.

L-Theanine shows nootropic promise in numerous human clinical trials
