PEA is naturally produced by the human body and is a "neuro-amplifier", which has unique and rapid uplifting effects on mood, mental activity, attention, motivation, alertness, creativity, awareness, energy, stamina, physical activity, pleasurable feelings and sensory perceptions.Learn More »
PEA functions as both a neurotransmitter, improving focus, attention, goal-directed behavior and task-completion and 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 supplementation provides rapid improvements to mental clarity, mood, stamina, energy, libido, joy and motivation.
PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone) supplementation has been shown to optimize the health and function of the entire central nervous system, improving energy levels, memory and higher cognitive function. PQQ stimulates the growth of fresh mitochondria (the organelles that generate the energy that powers your brain and body).Learn More »
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. 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 and 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 is a naturally occurring amino acid that reduces stress levels, promotes relaxation, boosts mood, and increases mental attention, alertness and cognition.Learn More »
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.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is potent and bioavailable form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine. L-Tyrosine is key precursor to a number of neurotransmitters (including Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine) and to Coenzyme Q10 (which is critical for mitochondrial health) and is critical to a number of bodily functions, including cognitive processes, building muscles and cell growth and recovery.Learn More »
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine 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. A number of studies have found that L-Tyrosine supplementation may improve mental performance under conditions of not only stress but also cold, fatigue, prolonged work, and even sleep deprivation.
KSM-66 is a patented Ashwagandha extract, offering the highest concentration full-spectrum root extract on the market today (more than 5% withanolides), retaining all the natural constituents of the herb in the original balance. It is produced using the first-of-its-kind extraction process, based on “Green-Chemistry” principles, without using alcohol or any other chemical solvents. Ashwagandha promotes physical and mental health by reducing stress and anxiety, increasing neuroplasticity, improving cognitive and brain function, improving learning, memory and reaction time, enhancing immune system functions, and maintaining healthy lipid and glucose metabolism.Learn More »
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. Research from the Asha Hospital in Hyderabad found, in a study of 64 people with chronic stress, that Ashwagandha supplementation for two months decreased stress by 44% and decreased depression and/or anxiety by 72%.
CDP Choline (Citicoline) is both highly bioavailable and easily crosses the blood-brain barrier. CDP Choline (Citicoline) enhances memory, improves focus and clarity, increases mental energy. Nearly 90% of the population does not get sufficient choline from their diets, which can lead to mental impairment and deficiencies. 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).Learn More »
CDP Choline (Citicoline) 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. CDP Choline (Citicoline) (through Uridine) increases Dopamine receptor densities and encourages Dopamine release.
Uridine supplementation has been shown to increase neuroplasticity, improve working memory and fluid intelligence, and repair and increase the density of Dopamine receptors, reversing damage done by poor diet, lifestyle and other factors.Learn More »
Uridine 5'-Monophosphate is a highly bioavailable form of Uridine that easily crosses the blood-brain barrier (unlike Uridine derived from dietary sources). Uridine supplementation enhances the growth of neurites, increasing neuroplasticity and facilitating improved learning and memory. Uridine helps to repair and improve the Dopamine system, by facilitating the repair of Dopamine receptors and increasing Dopamine receptor density, while also boosting the release of Dopamine, improving mood, motivation, focus, alertness and cognition. Uridine plays an important role in the synthesis of Acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter associated with learning and memory) and Phosphatidylcholine (a critical component of the phospholipid layer encasing neurons). Uridine 5'-Monophosphate is particularly effective when, as in AWAKEN, it is combined with CDP Choline (Citicoline) and Methylcobalamin (B12).
Phosphatidylserine supplementation significantly increases memory recognition, memory recall, executive functions and mental flexibility. Following supplementation total learning and immediate recall improve significantly.Learn More »
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. 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).
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.Learn More »
Bioperine is an extract from black pepper, which has been shown to enhance the bioavailability and absorption of the other ingredients in AWAKEN. 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.Learn More »
It will vary from individual to individual. We recommend that you start with 2 capsules in the morning. More advanced users may want to take 1 additional capsule in either the morning or in the early afternoon for an afternoon boost.
AWAKEN can be taken at any time and can be taken more than once per day (but you should limit yourself to a maximum of 4 capsules per day). We recommend taking AWAKEN each morning to start your day with your best foot forward. We 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. We also recommend taking 1-2 capsules of AWAKEN about 30 minutes prior to whenever you want to kick your performance into higher gear – prior to an important meeting, a pitch, getting started on an important project, playing sports, practicing or performing, studying, taking an exam, etc.
Most people begin to notice some of the effects the first time they use AWAKEN. The effects of some components of AWAKEN, especially the Ayurvedic herbal components, will build over time and become more pronounced after several weeks of daily use.
Absolutely! Caffeine works synergistically with AWAKEN and will amplify some of the effects. In addition to caffeine, taking DHA/Omega-3 Fish Oils with AWAKEN is highly synergistic. If you currently take caffeine, we recommend that you continue to do so, otherwise the symptoms of caffeine withdrawal may temporarily overpower the positive effects of AWAKEN. A minority of users may find the calming/anti-stress effects of AWAKEN to be especially potent and for those users we recommend taking AWAKEN with a cup of coffee.
Caffeine works synergistically with some components of AWAKEN, however caffeine is addictive and we wanted to leave the decision of whether or not to take caffeine up to you. Caffeine is also a vasoconstrictor and can put a lot of stress on the heart and cardiovascular system. As with all Awakened Alchemy product, we formulated AWAKEN to be purely healthy and side effect free.
AWAKEN has mild stimulatory effects. These effects result from endogenous compounds and AWAKEN is therefore not considered a stimulant. 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.
No. We have carefully formulated AWAKEN to avoid all addictive substances. You will not build a tolerance to AWAKEN and there is no need to cycle off. Some users may prefer to cycle 4 weeks on/1 week off, or 5 days on/2 days off.
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.
No. All Awakened Alchemy products are made using vegetable capsules and are Vegan.
