Proper focus is critical for execution of all attention-demanding tasks. Memory is not a perfect processor – its efficiency is affected by many factors, some of which can be supported by purposeful supplementation.

Mental by Rohtos Labs contains seven powerful nootropics and adaptogens, selected to help boost your productivity by sharpening your mind and keeping you mentally immersed. This harmonic blend provides the compounded effect of classical herbal remedies combined with highly bioavailable neuronutrients.

Citicoline, Acetyl-L-carnitine and Phosphatidylserine support concentration and memory retention by providing building blocks for new neural tissue and transmitters responsible for memory function.

Rhodiola rosea is a clinically-studied herbal adaptogen that provides sustained mental energy and mood support with fast onset.

Gingko biloba, pine bark extract, and vitamin B3 offer neuroprotection, suppress oxidative stress and help maintain blood circulation in the brain, which contributes to cognitive function by increasing brain performance.

Mental is an effective nootropic that is formulated to function in synergy with our Drive formulation and its mental energy providing effect.

Mental

Mechanism of Action Biochemical support of brain performance by provision of neural building blocks, supporting blood flow, modulating memory and mood related neurotransmission, and fighting oxidative stress.
Areas of Application Attention-demanding tasks, memorization, knowledge-based work, mitigating memory issues.
Duration of Effect 5 hours active concentration support. 12 hours for the antioxidative effect.
Usage Take when necessary, 2 capsules at a time on an empty stomach. Continuous use will provide compounded effects especially with regards to brain inflammation suppression.
Things to Note Niacin (B3) may cause temporary flushing or itching for some people. This effect, known as “Niacin flush” is harmless and will recede with continued use.
Goes Well With Omega3 fatty acids – for enhancing fatty acid bioavailability.
Coffee, Yerba mate – for synergistic stimulative effect.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – for central nervous-system antioxidation

Active Ingredients

Citicholine is one of the three choline-containing phospholipids that can be orally supplemented. Citicoline is a nootropic compound that converts to both choline and uridine upon ingestion, both of which molecules are vital for healthy brain function, confer neuroprotection and potentially enhance learning. It appears to confer cognitive-promoting properties as a precursor for these neuro compounds.

Phosphatidylserine is a compound similar to dietary fat. It is highly prevalent in human neural tissue, with around 15% of brain consisting of phosphatidylserine, where it contributes to cognitive functioning.

Phosphatidylserine is vital for cognitive function. It can be consumed through the diet or biosynthesized in the body, but further benefits can be gained through supplementation.

Phosphatidylserine concentrations in the brain appear to decline with age and supplementation in older individuals seems to improve memory and cognitive capacity. Phosphatidylserine also exhibits anti-stress properties by modulating elevated levels of stress hormone cortisol.

Ginkgo biloba is a medicinal plant from traditional Chinese medicine that is commonly called “Maidenhair tree”. Its native habitat includes large areas in China, Japan and Korea.

Ginkgo biloba contains ginkgolides and bilobalides, two active neuroprotective compounds that maintain blood circulation in the brain which contributes to cognitive function by increasing brain performance. The general protective effects of Ginkgo biloba on brain tissue may cause preservation of memory related neuro signalling and memory function.

Ginkgo biloba in Mental is a standard 50:1 concentrated extract that is produced from the leaves and standardized to 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones.

Carnitine is an amino acid, which occurs in nature to a degree, but can also be biosynthesized in the body from the essential amino acids methionine and lysine. After carnitine undergoes the process of acetylation (adding an acetyl group to a molecule), it has a greatly improved ability to enter the brain.

ALCAR is a versatile compound that can provide ingredients that can be oxidized for energy, used as precursors for memory neurotransmitter acetylcholine, or incorporated into other transmitters, or into lipids for cell growth.

Carnitine is also vital for the transport of fatty acids during the process of creating metabolic energy, as it facilitates breaking down fat stores for energy.

These functions may help with energy status, decrease oxidative stress, support memory function and prevent memory impairment. The effects of ALCAR supplementation have been widely researched in various areas including anti-aging, mental and sports performance, anxiety and mood improvement.

Vitamin B3 refers to the molecule commonly called nicotinic acid, or niacin, and is found in minute quantities in most foods. The B3 in Mental is niacin.

Niacin helps improve circulation and is shown to be neuroprotective in some instances.

Rhodiola rosea is an herb traditionally used as an adaptogen compound. It is also known with common names such as Arctic root, Rose root or Golden root. Rhodiola rosea is common to northern Europe and Russia and can be found on some areas of North America.

Traditional usage is localised to Europe and Russia, with first written notes of utilisation in Scandinavia from the 18th century. Its use has extended into Asia and it is incorporated into traditional Chinese medicine. It is commonly reported to have traditionally been used by scandinavian Vikings to preserve physical robustness.

Salidroside and Rosavin are widely considered to be the most important bioactive molecules in Rhodiola rosea. They are likely responsible for Rhodiola’s protective and stimulant effects on the brain.

Rhodiola rosea is widely beneficial to brain and cognitive function: it displays antioxidant and neuroprotective properties and is effective in mitigating mental stress and supporting good mood.

Rhodiola rosea in Mental is an extract with Salidrosides standardized to 3% and Rosavins to 5%.

Pine bark is a rich source of procyanidins, a class of polyphenols and flavonoids also found in blueberries, wine, grape, citrus, and cocoa. Procyanidins are widely bioavailable, strong antioxidants and anti-inflammatory natural substances.

Pine bark extract supports healthy blood flow across the body. This effect is a direct result of increased nitric oxide production and release.

Pine bark extract is a strong antioxidant. Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation impede cognitive functioning and weaken attention.

Pine bark extract in Mental is standardized to 98% procyanidins.
