BrainJuice contains the nutrients your brain needs to produce critical neurotransmitters:

  • Acetylcholine – for focus, clarity, and memory
  • Dopamine – for good mood and motivation.

We believe that food is medicine. That’s why we’ve included ingredients like a powerful antioxidant complex derived from organic blueberry, açaí, acerola cherry and green tea along with vitamins B12 & C to help protect and energize the brain.*

What Our Ingredients Do

Use this chart to dive a little deeper into each of our ingredients and their benefits.

soyAlpha-GlycerylPhosphorylCholine rapidly delivers choline to the brain across the blood-brain barrier and is a precursor of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter (1). Alpha GPC is derived from GMO-free soy lecithin.

tealeafGTE is a magnificent natural ingredient. Not only is it a natural source of quality caffeine, but it contains 20 times more antioxidants than Vitamin C. Antioxidants prevent free radicals from damaging cells.

blueberryBlueberry extract is dense in antioxidants and nutrients that protect brain cells from oxidative cell damage and support the visual brain function.

aciaberryAcai extract is known as a superfood in the Amazon because of its rich nutrient density. While there is a lot of overhype about acai being a “miracle ingredient,” it really is high in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and other nutrients. That said, it won’t help you shed 50lbs in 30 days. It is, however, a great way to support mental energy and acuity.

cherryVitamin C is a cofactor in the production of dopamine, as well as a powerful antioxidant and carrier of energy to cells. Vitamin C is in many citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons.

moleculeAcetyl-L-Carnitine is an essential amino acid; a building block of protein. It has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and get to the brain blood circulation, where it acts as a powerful antioxidant, which helps in prevention of the brain cells’ deterioration. It can be extracted from many different plant-based sources.

molecule2N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine is also an amino acid. It is the primary raw material for such essential neurotransmitters as dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Each of these neurotransmitters are vital to healthy brain function. Dopamine carries the “feel good” signal that you feel when when you do something good for your body or mind. It is your body’s way of incentivizing you to continue doing a specific act. For example, your brain releases a high amount of dopamine during exercise and stretching. Tyrosine can be extracted from many different plant-based sources.

spinachVitamin B5 is a cofactor in the production of acetylcholine. It is found in many animal products and plants, such as spinach.[/su_spoiler]

eggsVitamin B6 is a cofactor in the production of dopamine. It is found in many animal products and specific vegetables, such as spinach and kale. Eggs are also an excellent source of B6.

eggsteacupThis helps with relaxation and is calming for the nervous system. However, it doesn’t make you tired. L-Theanine is associated with the alpha state/allowing state where you are more open to learning new information and having insights come to you. This is the only calming ingredient in BrainJuice. It helps balance out caffeine by counterbalancing any negative caffeine effects. L-Theanine naturally occurs in green tea.
