Klean Cognitive by Klean Athlete is a NSF Certified for Sport supplement that provides a unique combination of ingredients to help support brain health and mental clarity, focus, and acuity for optimal athletic performance.
Klean Cognitive contains the patented combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine, and Lipoic Acid that has been the focus of research by Dr. Bruce Ames and an award-winning team of scientists at the University of California, Berkley. This patented, scientifically researched combination** supports healthy gene expression and mitochondrial function in the brain.
Klean Cognitive also contains Lutein, Alpha-GPC, and a phytonutrient fruit blend. While Lutein has traditionally been associated with eye health, emerging research is demonstrating that Lutein may play an important role in maintaining proper brain health. Alpha-GPC converts to acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter that plays a role in cognition. A powerful blend of fruits is added to this formula for powerful antioxidant capacity to help fight free radical stress and support normal brain function.
The combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine, and alpha Lipoic Acid has been studied to support mitochondrial function. This composition also activates the transport of nutrients into the mitochondria, where they are transformed into a specific chemical form of energy (ATP). The captured energy is used to run the cellular machinery for such activities as brain function and neurotransmission.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine contributes its acetyl group to the production of acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter for memory and thought. Research has also found that Acetyl-L-Carnitine is active in optimizing the functioning of cerebral blood flow, as well as of nerve cell membranes. Alpha-GPC, also called alpha- glycerophosphocholine, is thought to support memory and cognitive function because it increases plasma levels of choline, and therefore also increases production of acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine. Alpha- GPC is a precursor to membrane phospholipids. Therefore, Alpha-GPC may help neuronal functioning by improving neuronal membrane fluidity. Lutein is a common carotenoid found in spinach and green leafy vegetables that transports across the blood-brain barrier and accumulates in the macula and neural tissues. A clinical trial with 12 mg of Lutein supplementation resulted in improved cognitive test results in elderly women.† Berries are high in antioxidants and it is well documented that blueberries and fruit flavanoids play a significant role in memory support and a healthy aging brain.
Klean Cognitive is tested and certified by the NSF Certified for Sport program, which was created to meet the growing demands of athletes, coaches and healthcare professionals to certify that sports supplements are safe and completely free from banned substances. Every product that carries the NSF Certified for Sport® mark has undergone stringent laboratory testing to confirm content, purity and compliance.
Klean Cognitive may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who desire a patented, scientifically researched combination of nutrients plus antioxidants to support healthy aging and cognition.
