    FORMULATED WITH INGREDIENTS BACKED BY CLINICAL RESEARCH


    8 NOOTROPIC COMPOUNDS


    L-Theanine

    200 mg

    L-Theanine promotes an alert state of relaxation without drowsiness, indicated by the increase in alpha brain waves and decrease in beta brain waves. It has been shown to promote cognition, motivation and attention.[1]

    Caffeine

    100 mg

    Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive compound in the world. As a nootropic, it provides mental stimulation, alertness, and improved mood through modulation of the dopamine and adrenaline systems.[2]

    Rhodiola Rosea

    300 mg (3% salidroside)

    Rhodiola rosea is a plant that has been shown to improve resilience to stress, increase alertness, and combat fatigue, especially in strenuous settings. It works by increasing the body's sensitivity to dopamine and serotonin.[3]

    Ashwagandha

    180 mg (>5% withanolides)

    Ashwagandha has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for several thousand years and has been shown to help relieve stress, combat fatigue, and improve concentration. It can also protect against inflammation.[4]

    N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine

    250 mg

    N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a more bioavailable form of L-Tyrosine, an essential amino acid. The compound has been shown to increase attention levels, heighten alertness, and improve stress-resilience.[5]

    Sulbutiamine

    200 mg

    Sulbutiamine has been shown to improve cholinergic and dopaminergic neurological transmissions within the brain resulting in reduction in fatigue, increased motivation levels, improved memory, and enhanced learning.[6]

    Mucuna Pruriens

    80 mg (>40% L-Dopa)

    L-Dopa, a compound from mucuna pruriens, is the last step in the conversion to dopamine. It has been shown to improve motivation levels as well as increase libido and memory retention.[7]

    EGCG

    100 mg

    EGCG (from green tea extract) optimizes the efficiency of conversion for compounds such as l-dopa to dopamine in the brain while reducing the peripheral side effects on the body.[8]


    4 BRAIN VITAMINS


    Niacin

    40 mg (niacinamide)

    Also known as Vitamin B3, Niacin has brain boosting and anti-oxidative properties. It also plays a role in cellular communication.[9]

    Vitamin b6

    10 mg (pyridoxal 5’-phosphate)

    Vitamin B6 is an essential vitamin which is required for the conversion of several key neurotransmitters. We use P5P, one of the most bioactive forms of B6.[10]

    Vitamin b12

    200 mcg (methylcobalamin)

    B12 is an essential vitamin that is crucial for the synthesis of dopamine, serotonin, and GABA which correlate with our mood, energy, and stress levels.[11]

    Vitamin D3

    1000 IU (cholecalciferol)

    Vitamin D is essential for brain function and mood. This vitamin is involved in a wide array of bodily functions.[12]


    THE NEUROTRANSMITTER OF MOTIVATION

    Crave that euphoria you feel each time you achieve your goal? That's the neurotransmitter dopamine in action. Your brain gets flooded with dopamine whenever you anticipate an accomplishment or complete a task, motivating you to continue pursuing it.


    metaDRIVE® is geared towards amplifying dopamine. Also known as the “chemical of reward", optimal levels of dopamine make us feel motivated, focused, and accomplished. Learn how each compound within metaDRIVE® increases dopamine levels:

    L-Tyrosine & L-Dopa

    THE CONVERSION OF DOPAMINE

    L-Tyrosine  >  L-Dopa  >  Dopamine

    Mucuna pruriens (L-Dopa) and N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (L-Tyrosine) convert to increase levels of dopamine in your brain.[13]

    Rhodiola Rosea

    Rhodiola rosea, an adaptogenic herb works by increasing sensitivity to dopamine. The adaptogenic qualities help prevent stress while the increase in dopamine sensitivity results in increased stamina and reduced fatigue.[14]

    Sulbutiamine

    Sulbutiamine, a derivative of Vitamin B1, reduces the release of dopamine which in turn, increases the amount of dopamine receptors. This results in greater motivation and energy levels.[15]

     Caffeine & L-Theanine: A Match(a) Made in Heaven

    One of the main ingredients in matcha green tea, L-theanine redirects the jittery, anxious stimulation of caffeine into a smooth, more focused energy. The benefits of a cup of coffee without the drawbacks. 

    L-Theanine & Caffeine Improves Simple Reaction Time

    Haskell CF, Kennedy DO. The effects of L-theanine, caffeine, and their combination on cognition and mood. Biol Psychol. 2008

    Through clinical trials, researchers have found that 200 mg of l-theanine can increase alpha-wave activity in the brain, which allows you to be relaxed while awake–similar to a zen, meditative state.[1]


     When tested against placebo and caffeine, the combination provided quicker reaction times, improved memory recall, and enhanced verbal accuracy.[16]

    POWERHOUSE ADAPTOGENIC HERBS THAT

    ERADICATE STRESS & COMBAT FATIGUE

    RHODIOLA ROSEA

    metaDRIVE® contains Rhodiola rosea extract that is standardized to 3% salidroside, the most active compound within the plant, responsible for the stimulation that the nootropic provides.

    ASHWAGANDHA

    metaDRIVE® contains Ashwagandha extract that is standardized to a minimum of 5% withanolides, the compound responsible for most of the benefits of the ayurvedic plant.


    The combination of Rhodiola rosea and Ashwagandha balances out the stimulation from the caffeine and dopaminergic compounds by lowering cortisol which reduces stress levels. Both compounds have also been shown to have anti-fatigue and anti-inflammatory properties, being touted as "miracle herbs" in Asian countries throughout history.[22] [23]
