Catanzaro Supplements Brain & Brawn Formula is a unique formula that contains Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Alpha-GPC, Mucuna Pruriens, Vinpocetine, and Huperzine-A to enhance body and brain function.
Huperzine-A is a substance derived from a plant called Chinese club moss. It’s a cognitive enhancer that inhibits an enzyme that degrades the learning neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Huperzine-A, therefore, increases levels of acetylcholine. Why is that important? Well, acetylcholine inhibits somatostatin, a hormone that inhibits the release of growth hormone.
L-Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine, known simply as Alpha-GPC, rapidly delivers choline across the blood–brain barrier and is a precursor of acetylcholine, and studies show that it can raise levels of growth hormone.
Since Huperzine-A and Alpha-GPC are able to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain, not only can they help increase growth hormone levels, but they can also help increase information retention and memory formation as well as boost concentration and mental clarity.
Carnitine has been shown to increase the androgen receptor content in muscle tissue. By increasing the density of androgen receptors, you have better utilization of testosterone. So although carnitine does not necessarily increase testosterone levels in your bloodstream, it increases the level of testosterone receptors on your muscle cells which allow testosterone to latch on to do its anabolic job. As a result of greater cellular uptake of testosterone and increased protein synthesis, muscle and connective tissue are able to regenerate and recover quicker following weight training.
Acteyl-L-Carnitine is a form of carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier. It’s been shown to improve mental focus and alertness, energy production, circulation and antioxidant protection to the brain, and provide anti-aging and neuroprotective benefits.
Mucuna Pruriens is an Ayurvedic herb that can also enhance the function of the brain and body. This compound has the ability to increase dopamine, a powerful neurotransmitter in your brain involved in mood, alertness, sexuality and many other important functions. Dopamine is known to stimulate testosterone synthesis and aid GH secretion. Furthermore, Mucuna Pruriens can help decrease prolactin and cortisol levels, two hormones that lower testosterone.
Vinpocetine, an extract from the seeds of the periwinkle plant, has been shown to provide significant support for brain health and cognitive function. It absorbs rapidly and will enhance blood flow to the brain in no time.
