Phenylethylamine, also known as PEA is naturally produced by the human body. It is a "neuro-amplifier", which increases the actions of Dopamine (for motivation and drive), Norepinephrine (for wakefulness and higher performance), Acetylcholine (for improved memory and neural activity), and Serotonin (for improved mood and impulse control). PEA has unique and rapid uplifting effects that can noticeably improve mood, mental activity, attention, motivation, alertness, creativity, awareness, energy, stamina, physical activity, pleasurable feelings, sexuality, and sensory perceptions.
PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone) reverses aspects of cellular aging by protecting mitochondria (the powerhouses of your cells) from oxidative damage and activating genes that induce the growth of fresh mitochondria. A double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trial found that 20 mg of oral PQQ daily improved short-term memory, attention/concentration, information identification, and processing ability in healthy adults. PQQ has been shown to optimize the health and function of the entire central nervous system, improving energy levels, memory and higher cognitive function. Mitochondrial health is critical to cognitive function, because Acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter that is essential to learning and memory formation, is primarily synthesized in the mitochondria. Nerve cells in the brain require especially high numbers of healthy mitochondria to power the brain's massive energy needs. PQQ is also a neuroprotective and cardioprotective compound.
L-Theanine has been shown in double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials to reduce stress levels, promote relaxation, boost mood, increase mental attention, alertness and cognition, increase alpha wave activity in the brain (which is associated with relaxed mental states) and increase theta wave activity in the brain (which is associated with improved learning and memory). L-Theanine increases GABA, Serotonin and Dopamine levels in the brain, as well as boosting Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) and Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which encourage the growth of new neurons and synapses and the repair of existing neurons, synapses and myelin, increasing neuroplasticity and learning. L-Theanine is also an antagonist of NMDA receptors which inhibits the release of glutamate, protecting your brain from over-stimulation. L-Theanine is an essential and powerful nootropic ingredient.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) is a potent and bioavailable form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine, which is the key precursor to Dopamine and Norepinephrine. It is also a key precursor to Coenzyme Q10 (which is critical for mitochondrial health). N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) has been shown in double-blind human trials to support peak performance by reducing stress, supporting positive mood and motivation and promoting focus and mental clarity. L-Tyrosine is critical to a number of bodily functions, including cognitive processes, building muscles and cell growth and recovery. AWAKEN provides a premium quantity per dose of N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine.
Shilajit translates as the “Conqueror of Mountains” & “Destroyer of Weakness”. Shilajit is a mineral tar, found predominantly in the Himalaya and Tibet mountains, that is prized in Ayurvedic medicine for its profound adaptogenic and antioxidant effects on the body and mind. Shilajit improves cellular energy production (increasing energy and improving stamina), improves memory and mood and sharpens cognitive functions. Shilajit’s antioxidant activity protects your mitochondria against cellular damage, slowing the aging process in your neurons and muscle tissue. Shilajit works with the PQQ in AWAKEN to enhance mitochondrial function and health and with the Ashwagandha in AWAKEN to potentiate its effects. The Shilajit used in AWAKEN is purified and free from heavy metals.
Ashwagandha translates as the “Smell of a Horse” indicating that the herb confers the strength of a stallion. Ashwagandha is a powerful Ayurvedic herb that promotes physical and mental health by reducing stress and anxiety, boosting levels of BDNF, regenerating axons and dendrites, reconstructing synapses, increasing myelin levels in the nervous system, improving cognitive and brain function, improving learning, memory and reaction time, enhancing immune system functions, and maintaining healthy lipid and glucose metabolism. Ashwagandha is one of the best natural nootropic supplements for the variety of benefits it can provide. Research from the Asha Hospital in Hyderabad found, in a study of 64 people with chronic stress, that took Ashwagandha supplementation for two months, decreased stress by 44% and decreased depression and/or anxiety by 72%. Shilajit and Ashwagandha are highly synergistic and are significantly more potent when taken in combination. You can feel their synergistic potency when you take AWAKEN!
Noopept (Omberacetam) is one of the strongest nootropics available. It is estimated to be 1,000 to 5,000 times more potent than the nootropic supplement, Piracetam. Noopept boosts levels of Cycloprolylglycine, which is a nootropic naturally found in the brain and is associated with regulation of memory formation and reduction of anxiety. Noopept provides a profound boost to overall cognition, improving memory, by assisting with memory formation, memory consolidation and memory retrieval. Noopept increases levels of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) and BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor), which increase neuroplasticity, accelerate learning, facilitate the growth and repair of neurons and synapses, and improve the performance of the neural networks of the brain. The high-quality Noopept used in the AWAKEN formula is second to none. Noopept is an essential component of the AWAKEN formula and its many benefits are enhanced when combined with CDP Choline (Citicoline), another component of AWAKEN.
CDP CHOLINE (CITICOLINE)
CDP Choline (Citicoline) is a powerful nootropic that has been shown in double-blind human trials to enhance memory, heighten focus, and increase mental energy and clarity. CDP Choline (Citicoline) metabolizes into both Choline and Uridine (which increases neuroplasticity, memory formation and boosts mood), making it the most effective Choline supplement for cognitive enhancement. CDP Choline (Citicoline) significantly increases the rate of choline synthesis (increasing levels of Acetylcholine in the brain), replenishes depleted levels of phospholipids and works synergistically with other nootropics to powerfully potentiate their effects. It also (through Uridine) increases Dopamine receptor densities and encourages Dopamine release. A high-quality choline nootropic is an essential component of any quality nootropic stack. CDP Choline (Citicoline) is the best choline nootropic for improving brain function and mental performance. AWAKEN contains a premium quantity per dose of top quality CDP Choline (Citicoline).
Sulbutiamine is a synthetic version of Thiamine (Vitamin B1) that is created by combining two Thiamine molecules. Sulbutiamine crosses the blood-brain barrier much more easily than Thiamine. It also has has profound nootropic effects. Sulbutiamine has proven to show marked improvements in memory, increased alertness and mental energy levels, improved mood and reduced anxiety. AWAKEN includes a premium quantity per dose of top quality Sulbutiamine.
Phosphatidylserine supplementation has been shown in human trials to significantly increase memory recognition, memory recall, executive functions and mental flexibility. Following supplementation total learning and immediate recall improve significantly. Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that contains both amino acids and fatty acids and is essential for healthy nerve cell membranes and myelin. Phosphatidylserine supports positive mood, improves cognitive function and athletic performance by increasing aerobic endurance. It is an essential nootropic component. Phosphatidylserine helps maintain brain cell membrane fluidity, helps optimize neuroreceptors, boosts Acetylcholine and Dopamine levels and serves as a phosphatidyl donor for phosphatidylcholine synthesis, when combined with CDP Choline (Citicoline). AWAKEN includes Phosphatidylserine to work in synergy with the other components of the AWAKEN formula.
Methylcobalamin is a highly bioavailable form of Vitamin B-12, which promotes healthy levels of energy production, maintains brain health, vitality, and enhanced mood. Vitamin B-12 is involved in the metabolism of every cell in the human body, is a cofactor in the synthesis of Dopamine, GABA, Norepinephrine and Serotonin, and plays a key role in the generation and function of myelin.
Bioperine is an extract from black pepper, which has been shown to enhance the bioavailability and absorption of the other ingredients. Bioperine provides a variety of benefits. It is known on having a tremendous positive effect on the absorption of nutrients in the body. It can essentially potentiate the benefits of all other nutrients. Other studies have shown Bioperine to have an anti-tumor effect. It has shown to have an overall anti-cancer effect. Early research also suggests that Bioperine may have some antidepressant capabilities as well. Studies showed that it can increase the neurotransmission of both serotonin and dopamine levels. Both of these chemicals are often deficient in depressed individuals. Bioperine carries a safe user profile and fits in perfectly with the rest of the AWAKEN formula.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many capsules should I take?
It will vary from individual to individual. A full serving is 4 capsules, however, smaller people, more sensitive people and less experienced users may find that 2 or 3 capsules is better for them.
When should I take AWAKEN?
AWAKEN should be taken daily for best results. We recommend that most people take 4 capsules of AWAKEN first thing in the morning. For some people who are more sensitive, a dosage of 2 or 3 capsules per day may be preferred. We generally recommend taking AWAKEN on an empty stomach in order to expedite absorption, but AWAKEN is also effective if taken with food and some people may find that preferable.
When will I begin to feel the effects?
You will notice some of the effects the first time to use AWAKEN. The effects of some components of AWAKEN, especially the precursors to neurotransmitters and Ayurvedic herbal components, will build over time and become more pronounced after several weeks of daily use.
Can I drink coffee and/or tea with AWAKEN?
Absolutely! Caffeine works synergistically with AWAKEN and will amplify some of the short term effects.
If caffeine amplifies the effects why is it not included in AWAKEN?
Caffeine works synergistically with some components of AWAKEN, however we wanted to leave the decision of whether or not to take caffeine up to you. Caffeine is a potent vasoconstrictor and can put a lot of stress on the heart and cardiovascular system. Caffeine decreases blood flow and oxygen to key regions of the brain, including those responsible for executive function, personality and memory. Over time, decreased oxygen supply to the brain resulting from long term caffeine usage can damage the brain. As with all Awakened Alchemy products, we formulated AWAKEN to be purely healthy and side effect free and to enhance and protect the brain for long-term healthy function.
Is AWAKEN a stimulant?
AWAKEN has mild CNS stimulatory effects, but does NOT contain caffeine or other exogenous stimulants. Unlike caffeine and many other stimulants, you will not experience jitteriness or an energy level crash with AWAKEN. In fact, you will experience sustained elevated energy levels due to improved energy metabolism at the cellular level.
Is AWAKEN addictive?
No. We have carefully formulated AWAKEN to avoid all addictive substances. AWAKEN utilizes your existing endogenous chemistry. You will not build a tolerance to AWAKEN and there is no need to cycle off.
Do you use Magnesium Stearate?
No. Due to health concerns associated with the use of Magnesium Stearate, all Awakened Alchemy products use Nu-FLOW®, an organic flow agent made from sterilized rice hulls.
Should AWAKEN be cycled?
Yes. Due to the inclusion of Noopept, we recommend that you cycle AWAKEN 56 days on, 4 days off.
