What is a nootropic creamer?
What is a nootropic creamer, you ask?
A nootropic is any item that is capable of enhancing mental functions including, focus, memory, concentration and energy.
The morning ritual varies for everyone from tea to coffee, flat white to espresso. Coffee and tea have been shown to have numerous health benefits. Unfortunately, most people counteract the amazing benefits by adulterating it with sugar, or even worse syrups that contain high fructose corn syrup. Even adding milk (lactose) is adding sugar.
We were searching for a way to enhance our morning beverage. We tried “butter” coffee and found it not only inconvenient to use and clean the blender, but discovered through blood tests, that consuming that much butter was overwhelming our bodies ability to process fats throwing out our Omega 6-3 ratio, totally the opposite of what we were trying to achieve.
Our desire to incorporate essential nutrients into our daily habits led us to formulating a non-dairy, zero sugar, brain healthy alternative to the highly processed, sugar laden coffee creamers on the market today. By adding these nutrients into our morning beverage we eliminated a handful of expensive and let’s be honest the cumbersome task of pill taking.
Our nootropic creamer is a purposefully designed nootropic supplement that contains a synergistic blend of healthy fats MCT and Omega 3 DHA, Choline, L Theanine, Lions mane mushroom, and amino acids from Silk peptides. All of these ingredients have been shown in studies to have benefits to cognitive health and are deficient in our diets.
Adding healthy fats to your morning beverage in the form of MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides from organic coconuts) increases Ketone bodies giving the brain and body and immediate, clean source of energy without causing and insulin response. This decreases appetite thereby helping to extend the overnight fast. Time restricted eating or intermittent fasting has been shown to aid in weight loss, increase insulin sensitivity, and regulate blood cholesterol levels.
DHA omega 3 from sustainably grown Algae (No harvesting from the ocean!) is vital for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout life. DHA is abundant in the cell membranes of brain cells, preserving cell membrane health and facilitating communication between brain cells. A low intake of omega-3 fatty acids contribute to metabolic syndrome, liver steatosis or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), promote brain insulin resistance, and increase the vulnerability to cognitive dysfunction.(1)
Choline is recognised by the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) as an essential nutrient that must be acquired from the diet. We now know that choline plays a key role in lipid transport, cell membrane structural support, and neurotransmission.(2). Choline and DHA work in together metabolically and are required to transport and fully utilise DHA.
L-Theanine is an amino acid commonly found in tea. Theanine, together with caffeine, produce a distinct cognitive enhancement profile without the jitters or other side effects. L-Theanine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and affect the brain directly. In the brain, it targets brain chemicals that regulate arousal, anxiety, pleasure, and attention.(3)
Cera-Q This patent pending, clinically tested, enzymatically produced ingredient derived from silkworm (Bombyx mori) cocoon fibroin protein comprises a unique amino acid profile. Backed by multiple human clinical trials, Cera-Q® silk protein hydrolysate has been demonstrated to help promote memory in normal, healthy individuals.*(4)
