Panax ginseng is also known as true ginseng or Korean ginseng and is very different from the cheaper Siberian ginseng. Panax ginseng’s medicinal qualities are primarily attributed to the ginsenosides found naturally in the root, stem and leaves. Our Panax ginseng has a high percentage (4%) of ginsenosides. In the world of nootropics, Panax ginseng is highly regarded as a cognitive enhancer and concentration booster.

A natural slow sugar (disaccharide) that provides your brain with fuel. The low glycemic index means that it takes a while before your brain can use this fuel. That makes it ideal for long periods of mental activity, when the glucose from a faster suger has worn off and you would usually experience a sugar crash. Added bonus: it’s not sweet and not bad for your teeth!You can find it in ZoomBooster as a slow fuel for your brain.
A nut-like seed that grows on a Brazilian vine. Like coffee, it is a natural source of caffeine, but your body absorbs it differently. It is used worldwide, usually to increase alertness.You can find it in ZoomBooster because of the stimulating benefits of caffeine. It doesn’t make you feel rushed or irritable (common caffeine side effects) because of the combination with L-theanine. For more information, see L-theanine*
A unique amino acid which is found in white tea in particular. As a nootropic, it’s known for its stress-reducing qualities.You can find a high dose in ZenBooster because of its anti-stress properties. A lower dose can also be found in ZoomBooster. Here it takes the edge off the guarana’s caffeine.
Iodine is a trace element: a mineral that the body doesn’t need much of. It is important for the production of thyroid hormones, which are necessary for growth and the development of the nervous system.
There is very little natural iodine in your food, so it is added. An iodine deficiency develops when someone eats little or no bread, eats non-iodized or organic bread and also doesn’t use iodized kitchen salt. If a person has an iodine deficiency, their thyroid will swell up and work more slowly.You can find iodine in ZoomBooster because of the concentration benefits and positive effects on memory.
Vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, is part of the vitamin B complex and supports the energy metabolism.You can find it in ZoomBooster because it helps you with mental efforts. You can also find it in ZenBooster because B5 provides support in times of tension and stressful situations.

Passiflora (passion flower: Passiflora incarnata) is a beautiful flower originally found on the entire American continent.

The mineral magnesium is extremely important for your body. It plays an important role in transmitting nerve impulses and ensures the muscles work properly. That’s why you will find magnesium in a wide range of dietary supplements. However, it’s usually magnesium oxide that is used. It’s nice and cheap, but it’s an inorganic compound. That means that your body can barely absorb this magnesium. This is why our scientists always choose easily absorbable forms of magnesium.You can find it in ZenBooster as the organic compound magnesium citrate: good for your nervous system in times of internal turmoil. You can also find it in MoodBooster in its patented form, UltraMag®. In this form, magnesium oxide is absorbed well thanks to the use of sucrose esters, which is unique. This magnesium is good for your mood.
Vitamin B6 is important for the metabolism, particularly for breaking down and forming amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Vitamin B6 regulates how hormones work and is needed to turn 5-HTP into serotonin. It also ensures that your body properly absorbs magnesium. We use pyridoxal-5’-phosphate (P5P), which is the active form of vitamin B6 and therefore absorbed quickly.You can find it in MoodBooster because it’s good for the mental balance and mood, and is necessary to turn 5-HTP into serotonin.
NALT (N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine)
This well known nootropic stimulates the creation of dopamine. NALT is a higher biologically available form of the Tyrosine amino acid that ensures that your body absorbs it more quickly. Dopamine is also turned into norepinephrine (noradrenaline) which, together with serotonin, determines your mood.You can find it in MoodBooster because it stimulates the creation of dopamine, making a positive contribution to your mood.
Another well known nootropic, obtained from Griffonia simplicifolia. The seeds of this African bush naturally contain 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan): a precursor to serotonin which is converted faster than tryptophan. Magnesium and vitamin B6 play an important role in this. Serotonin is widely considered to be the ‘happiness hormone.’You can find it in MoodBooster because it stimulates the creation of serotonin and thus has a positive influence on your mood.
