1. Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Lion’s Mane: As the name suggests, this ancient medicinal mushroom is strong and works wonders for your mental and physical health.
➤ Improves Mood and Helps Relieve Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression
➤ Improves Cognitive Functioning, Memory and Ability to Focus
➤ Protects and Regenerates the Brain and Nervous System
➤ Has Anti-Aging Properties
Lion’s Mane extract can also help regenerate brain cells and improve the functioning of the hippocampus, a region of the brain responsible for processing memories and emotional responses. A few recent studies seem to indicate a positive, mood-boosting effect from Lion’s Mane.
Ashwaghanda: It’s classified as an "adaptogen," meaning that it can help your body manage stress and increase its ability to balance the body’s systems and treat a wide variety of health issues.
Ashwagandha is known for:
➤ Reduces the stress hormone cortisol
➤ Improve Brain Function, Including Memory
➤ Lowers cholesterol
➤ Supports adrenal glands which helps you combat fatigue and enhance energy levels
It has been used for over 3,000 years to relieve stress, increase energy levels and improve concentration. In several studies, Ashwagandha has been shown to lower blood sugar levels.
In one study in chronically stressed adults, those who supplemented with Ashwagandha had significantly greater reductions in cortisol, compared to the control group.
3. Vitamin B12
This powerful vitamin is most helpful with enhancing mental performance, but offers many additional health benefits:
➤ May improve Mood and Symptoms of Depression
➤ Slows aging
➤ Strengthens immune system
➤ Increases concentration
➤ Improves memory and may Benefit Your Brain by Preventing the Loss of Neurons
According to a study from Harvard Medical School, 3 percent to 4 percent of all adults have a vitamin B12 deficiency, but approximately 20 percent have a deficiency that still poses a health risk. And while it’s common for men and women to have low levels of vitamin B12, the reasons are different.
Interestingly, “studies show that most men usually consume the daily B12 they need (from eating things like beef, poultry and eggs), but they often have trouble with proper absorption of vitamin B12 due to medication use, especially older men taking several prescriptions at once,” says Dr. Josh Axe, clinical nutritionist and doctor of natural medicine.
This includes acid-blocking drugs and blood pressure and diabetes medications – all of which impacts the way B12 is absorbed. For men, a vitamin B12 deficiency can cause fatigue and issues with the central nervous system.
So, how can you get more B12? Animal protein such as beef, lamb and salmon. If you’re not a meat eater or consume little animal protein, you may want to consider taking vitamin B12 supplements.

L-Tyrosine: It is the precursor for a few of the most important chemicals in your body.
➤ Relieves stress and helps you focus
➤ Improves mood and can ease depression
➤ Improve Mental Performance in Stressful Situations
If you’re feeling blue, tyrosine may be able to help. Depressed adults who took tyrosine saw an improvement in mood. When they switched to placebo, the improvement disappeared, and when they went back to tyrosine, the improvement returned, suggesting that tyrosine really does improve symptoms of depression.
Several other studies in humans support tyrosine’s mood-lifting benefits, and tyrosine improved stress-induced depression symptoms in people dealing with chronic stressors.
In another study of 22 people, tyrosine significantly improved working memory during a mentally demanding task, compared to a placebo. Working memory plays an important role in concentration and following instructions.
5. Chaga Mushroom
One of the best sources of antioxidants on earth, Chaga is a powerful healer that treats a long list of health concerns:
➤ Improves Physical Endurance
➤ Promotes healthy cognitive function
➤ Boosts Your Immune System and Fights Inflammation
➤ Nutrient-dense superfood
Chaga is a powerful adaptogen and it is believed to be used by soldiers and astronauts and others who are under pressure to potentially gain a physical and mental advantage.
Chaga is derived from a mushroom that grows on birch trees in colder climates. It has been used for thousands of years to help treat a wide variety of health issues.
Referred to as a “Biological Response Modifier” (BRM), Chaga is filled with Beta-D-Glucans, which helps regulate the immune system – providing a boost when it’s weak, and slowing it down when it’s overly active.
If you’re one of the 95 million U.S. adults experiencing high cholesterol, Chaga is scientifically proven to break down the LDL cholesterol (“bad cholesterol”) in the bloodstream.
Chaga also has soothing properties, making it an effective treatment for irritation – particularly those experiencing pain, neuropathy and diabetes.
Research even shows Chaga can act as an anticancer agent!

6. Huperzine A
As an antioxidant, Huperzine A fights free radicals in the brain, making it a popular treatment for neurological disorders.
➤ Enhances learning and memory and protects against age-related cognitive decline.
➤ Boosts energy, increase alertness, fights depression
➤ May Prevent and Treat Alzheimer’s Disease
➤ Improves mental ability and overall well-being
➤ Helps with Cognitive Symptoms from Depression
Another powerful brain boosting substance, Huperzine A is typically used for memory impairment that comes with old age. Similar to Alpha-GPC, Huperzine A increases acetylcholine, improving the communication between the nerves in our brain.
Research suggests that taking Huperzine A by mouth for up to 8 weeks can improve memory, mental function, and behavior in people with conditions such as Alzheimer's disease or dementia, WebMD reports.
As a highly purified substance, Huperzine A is an expensive and rare ingredient to find in products.
Known for its brain-boosting properties, Alpha-GPC improves your mental health in numerous ways:
➤ Increases mental performance
➤ Enhances memory
➤ Boosts the development of new brain cells. And enhances your brain’s ability to repair damaged cell membranes.
➤ Improves mood, and boosts mental energy. The extra choline can increase alertness and clarity of thought.
Studied benefits include:
- Improvement in key brain functions, including memory, concentration, learning, recall, and focus.
- Formation of acetylcholine, a vital neurotransmitter compound involved in all key brain functions and mental sharpness.
- Helps speed cell to cell communication through neuromuscular optimization, providing enhanced muscular power output and agility for active and athletic individuals.
WISER MIND has 100mg of Alpha-GPC
As a natural neuroprotector, Phosphatidylserine is beneficial for maintaining a strong, healthy brain.
➤ Helps with mental and physical stress
➤ Aids in cognitive enhancement
➤ Affects the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain related to mood, and research has shown it can decrease the severity of depression
➤ Scientifically-proven to improve both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease symptoms
It can play a critical role in both maintaining and improving mental performance - name and face recognition, recalling locations of misplaced objects, concentration, and focus - which is often an unfortunate component of the normal aging process.
A multitude of scientific studies have shown that Phosphatidylserine can significantly help maintain and improve mental performance, can help improve mood, and can make a valuable contribution to lowering both physical and psychological stress.
To demonstrate just how effective Phosphatidylserine really is, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in February, 2003, approved two significant health claims for Phosphatidylserine, indicating that Phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly.
Each of the above nutrients is around $25 each and should be available at your local health food store.
If you are interested in an all in one product, our flagship supplement, Wiser Mind, has all the above nutrients plus 5 more in the optimal dose for adults. The best part is you only need to take one serving (2 capsules) a day!
