Many customers ask us about the nootropic ingredients in our supplements, in particular L-Tyrosine and Taurine found in our OptiMind drinks and pills. What they don't realize is how vital these two ingredients are for focus, energy, memory, and brain performance!
What are they?
L-Tyrosine and Taurine are both amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They occur naturally in certain foods, like meat, fish, and nuts.
L-Tyrosine is commonly used to improve learning, memory, and alertness. The body uses L-Tyrosine to produce chemical messengers in the brain.
Taurine is commonly used to help stimulate the metabolism, but new research shows Taurine plays an important role in memory and cognitive function.
What benefits do they have?
Mental Performance in Stressful Situations ⚡️
Stress decreases the amount of neurotransmitters in the brain, leading to poor brain function. Luckily, L-Tyrosine supplementation can boost brain performance, improve memory, and cognitive flexibility while under stress. Cognitive flexibility is the ability to switch between difficult tasks or thoughts. 
Decision Making 🧠
In a recent study, subjects with higher L-Tyrosine levels in their blood made better decisions and reacted less impulsively based on their emotions. 
Improving Alertness ☕️
L-Tyrosine helps people feel more alert and energized. In one study, people who lost a night's sleep stayed alert for three hours longer than they would otherwise. 
Taurine supplementation works to promote healthy long-term memory. 
Protects from Brain Aging 🧠
As we age, the amount of Taurine in the brain decreases. Taurine supplementation can help keep levels consistent throughout our life. One study showed taurine supplementation led to improvements in Alzheimer-like learning and memory deficits. 
Promotes Healthy Metabolism 💪
Taurine promotes healthy metabolism because it helps the liver to create bile salts. Bile salts help break down fatty acids in the intestines. Each day, an adult breaks down about 500 mg of cholesterol and converts it to bile.
