Jarrow Formulas BrainBoost combines three clinically tested ingredients that are useful in promoting brain function to deliver both short-term and long-term benefits.

Sharp-PS GOLD supplies the form of phosphatidylserine found naturally in the brain as a conjugated complex of DHA (omega-3) fatty acid as part of the triacylglycerol tail of the phosphatidylserine phospholipid. Phosphatidylserine is important for cell membrane fluidity and improves brain uptake of DHA.
ChocoMind (from Theobroma cacao) is a patent-pending extract high in theobromine that has been shown to positively affect cognitive and motor functions, including reaction time.
Vinpocetine supports brain metabolism by increasing brain circulation, enhancing the cerebral synthesis of ATP, improving the utilization of oxygen and supporting the synthesis of several neurotransmitters that affect such critical brain functions as memory, recall, focus and mood.

background reading
BrainBoost combines three well-studied, natural-source ingredients that are useful in promoting brain function both immediately and over the long-term. These ingredients are

1) ChocoMind, a cocoa bean extract standardized to contain 12% theobromine and 8% caffeine,
2) Sharp-PS GOLD phosphatidylserine (PS) omega-3 phospholipids, the form of PS typically found in the brain and known to lead to better omega-3 absorption and
3) Vinpocetine, an alkaloid derived from periwinkle flowers, that has been studied for promoting blood flow and metabolic activity in the brain.

Loco for cocoa
Chocolate tastes good and some people even crave it. But what we may not realize is that it’s more than just the sugar, fat and flavor that makes chocolate so alluring. Chocolate is chock-full of components that affect the brain, and it’s likely that the brain generates chocolate cravings because of these beneficial components.

In a study of ChocoMind conducted by noted chocolate researcher Bryan Raudenbush, forty volunteers were given 500 mg/day and then had their alertness and cognitive performance evaluated versus a control condition. The performance of the ChocoMind group was found to differ significantly in promoting parameters of memory, focus and reaction time.

P.S. - Phosphatidylserine is brain food
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is one component that researcher Paris Kidd describes as making up the “triple cell-membrane synergy,” that results from phospholipids, fatty acids and antioxidants being incorporated into cell membranes thereby allowing cells to function efficiently. This goes doubly for brain cells in which omega-3 phosphatidylserine, particularly with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is the natural form of phospholipid PS found in the brain. In fact, it is now understood that when attached to PS, omega-3s are more bioavailable.

The effects of PS on memory and cognition have been evaluated in a number of clinical studies, but recently Sharp-PS GOLD was evaluated in two studies involving elderly volunteers given 300 mg/day. The researchers noted signifi cant increases associated with supporting memory after 15 and 16 weeks, respectively. It is usually suggested that a maintenance dose of PS for healthy individuals is 100 mg/day even though it is quite safe to use in larger quantities.

Vinpocetine
When we read “brain metabolism,” a phrase often associated with vinpocetine, some of us scratch our heads thinking “wait, do I really want to metabolize my brain?” In actuality, what the phrase refers to is vinpocetine’s effects on promoting cerebral blood flow and supporting increased brain activity and energy mobilization (as measured by increased oxygen/glucose utilization and ATP production) in the brain. So vinpocetine may be derived from the lesser periwinkle, Vinca minor, but the brain is not lessened by its use.
