Mitochondria/BDNF/NGF

Cognitive Enhancement Stack 1,530 Updated: 2017-02-25  
The purpose of this is to find improvement in nearly all areas of cognition through primarily mitochondrial enhancement, neuroprotection, and neurogensis. Some extra things I hope to on the side is synaptogenesis, and myelinogenesis, covering most main neuroplasticities.

  • 2016-10-21 23:57:56: Notes of Epitalon was changed from A peptide with powerful anti-aging properties. Its main mechanism of action is increasing telomerase; telomeres are like caps of genetic material on the ends of chromosomes. Each time a cell divides through mitosis it loses some telomere length. The result of missing telomeres is programmed cell death, telomerase is an enzyme that rebuilds those telomere caps, preventing cell death. Because of the decreased cell death, it could increase life span and healing speed. The increased healing speed not only applies to wounds, but can accelerate muscle healing and support skin health in the process. It even can reduce cancer risk by an increase in natural melatonin production, as a result it could also aid in deep sleep. to A peptide with powerful anti-aging properties.

An antioxidant that has the unique ability to be both water and fat soluble. In that regard it could easily cross the blood brain barrier and deliver its antioxidant benefits and more. It shows up in the Kreb and can induce mitochondrial biogenesis to an extent, increasing ATP output. For these reasons, it is great at synergising with ALCAR because of a the mitochondrial enhancements, plus its added ability of increasing insulin release and insulin sensitivity, allowing ALCAR to aid in metabolising fatty acids. With all of these mechanisms it is excellent at improving cognition and processing speed.

Creatine is an amino acid that affects ATP production. It donates a phosphorus atom to ADP, supplying extra energy to cells. Because of increased metabolic energy, it show efficacy in improving cognition. It also show synergy with alpha-lipoic acid.

EPA and DHA are fatty acids known to increase BDNF levels in the hippocampus. Disregarding water weight, the average human brain is 60% fat. Omega-3s therefore work as a very high quality building block for the brain. It regulates synaptic plasticity allowing neuronal cell transmission and increasing neurotransmitter release. It helps with neurogenesis and neurite outgrowth, neurites being dendrites and axons. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and an antioxidant, further protecting neurons. Finally, it shows synergies with phosphatidylserine, uridine, curcumin, green tea, and vitamin E.

Some evidence suggests that adding vitamin E to fish oil may prevent fish oil-induced increase in blood sugar levels.

Supplementing with folic acid in amounts as little as 300 to 800 mcg per day may increase vitamin B12 requirements. Therefore, it would be prudent for people taking folic acid to supplement with vitamin B12.

Supplementation with vitamin B12, even in relatively small amounts, can increase folic acid requirements, For that reason, people taking vitamin B12 supplements should also consider taking folic acid.

In addition, supplementing with folic acid can mask the laboratory diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Failure to identify and treat vitamin B12 deficiency in a timely manner can lead to permanent neurological damage. The relatively small amount of vitamin B12 present in most supplements is not sufficient to prevent or correct vitamin B12 deficiency in people who have pernicious anemia (a condition caused by vitamin B12 malabsorption). For that reason, people should tell their doctor if they are taking folic acid supplements, so that the doctor will order alternative laboratory tests if vitamin B12 deficiency is suspected.

In a study of healthy men, supplementation with a large amount of zinc (142 mg per day) decreased magnesium absorption. Magnesium supplementation should therefore be considered for people taking large amounts of zinc, and possibly for those taking lower amounts.
