Read our Agmatine Review

This is a natural compound that was discovered in the early 1900s when scientists decarboxylated the amino acid arginine meaning to say, the carboxylic acid group was removed from Arginine. From a nootropic perspective, agmatine is known to aid in neurotransmission within the brain. It accomplishes this by influencing ion channels, membrane transportation, modulation of nitric oxide, and metabolic processing of polyamine. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and functions to improve mood and reduce anxiety. It is also known to influence the Alpha-2 receptor in the adrenergic system and can inhibit some NMDA receptors.



Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally and is taken to help treat insomnia and to improve sleep quality. It is tied to your circadian rhythm and can put it back in balance making you easier to fall and stay asleep. Moreover, Melatonin is known as a powerful anti-oxidant, protecting both lipids and proteins against free radicals that may cause damage. With thus, it promotes overall brain health condition. It is generally dosed at 1 to 3mg.
