Lion’s Mane Mushroom
The original discovery of Lion’s Mane’s ability to increase Nerve
Growth Factor (NGF) occurred in 1991 and is credited to Japanese
scientists, Dr. Kawagishi. This discovery presented a massive paradigm
shift in the way science looks at brain cells. No longer a finite number
that decreases over our lifespan, entire fields of scientific research
have since been devoted to maintaining - even increasing - brain cell
counts for enhanced cognitive function and longevity.
Since that time, numerous studies have confirmed that this naturally
occurring mushroom contains active compounds that stimulate NGF
synthesis in human cells and promotes neurite outgrowth via activation
of the JNK pathway (Jun amino-terminal kinase) This was proven in vivo.
When they fed mice with Lions Mane powder there was an increase in the
level of NGF mRNA expression in the hippocampus. [3,4]
A study published in the September 2014 edition of the International
Journal of Molecular Science confirmed that Lion’s Mane contains a
compound known as Erinacine A that effectively scavenges free radicals,
inhibiting inflammation and helps repair injured brain and nerve cells.
Based on a 2010 study published in Biomedical Research, Lion’s Mane seems to decrease anxiety and depression symptoms. 
According to a 2008 Japanese study, Lion’s Mane seems to halt and
reverse (increased score on cognitive function scale) cognitive decline
in 50-80 year old Japanese men and women who suffered from mild
cognitive impairment. The effect weren’t permanent and the scores
declined after 4 weeks of stopping the ingestion of Lion’s Mane. 
Pyrroloquinoline quinone, or PQQ for short, is a coenzyme that was
discovered in 1979. PQQ is involved in many of the body’s natural
metabolic processes and PQQ supplementation has been shown in studies to
provide neuroprotective activity, anti-oxidative activity, and
Our source, BioPQQ is the industry leader for pyrroloquinoline quinone. Simply put, PQQ helps us create new mitochondria. 
In recent years, a substantial body of evidence has underscored the
importance of mitochondrial function in maintaining energy balance,
minimizing oxidative stress and promoting longevity. Mitochondrial
function has been examined in many aspects, including metabolic, neural
and age-related conditions. PQQ deficiency decreases the size, number
and function of mitochondria in rodents, and supplementation reverses
Supplementation with PQQ has been shown to improve memory and
reasoning, while more studies indicate that PQQ offers neuro-protective
properties via reduction of oxidative damage. In a randomized,
double-blind study of 71 middle aged individuals, PQQ supplementation
over 12 weeks significantly improved short term memory and demonstrated
the ability to prevent memory loss. [12,13,14]
In 2012, Japanese researchers performed the first human study
examining the effect of BioPQQ on stress, fatigue, and sleep. They
concluded that supplementing with PQQ improved sleep, leading to reduced
negative mental states, relief of fatigue and rise of positive mood.
Other important conclusions from this study were that “mood also was
improved by diminishing feelings of fatigue, and improved measures of
appetite, sleep, pain and obsession with no adverse effects.” 
A 2016 study examining the impact of BioPQQ using near-infrared
spectrometry (NIRS) found that cerebral blood flow in the prefrontal
cortex was increased by the administration of PQQ. “The results suggest
that PQQ can prevent reduction of brain function in aged persons,
especially in attention and working memory.” 
CILTEP® is a natural formula designed to safely enhance the brain's ability to form vivid, long-lasting memories and remain sharply motivated and focused for hours.
Users of CILTEP® often report:
- Increased motivation and mental endurance†
- Improved concentration and alertness†
- Improved mood and social ease†
- Enhanced ability to study†
Beat Brain Fog!
Brain Fog is the worst! We all have those moments where it's just impossible to focus, or when the one thing we were thinking of is just stuck at the tip of the tongue!
As we get older these things tend to get worse, but the good news is they don't have to.
There's a reason why thousands of entrepreneurs, doctors, firefighters and students around the world are using CILTEP® to boost their focus, motivation and memory.
Introducing CILTEP® (sil-tep) for Focus and Memory
CILTEP® is a natural supplement that can help you achieve a higher state of focus and concentration with enhanced memory formation.
The formula is designed to induce long-term potentiation (LTP) in the brain.
LTP is a crucial mechanism involved in the formation of new memories and the strengthening of neural synapses.
The formula works by:
PDE4 Inhibition + Increasing cAMP = Long-Term Potentiation
Developed by Abelard Research, the CILTEP® Formula is a protected by United States Patent and Trademark Office US9149457B2.
Natural Stacks is currently involved in multiple placebo-controlled, double-blind University studies on its effectiveness.
PDE4 is an enzyme that breaks down cAMP molecules, messenger systems that relay signals in the brain.
Inhibition of PDE4 blocks the breakdown of cAMP, and thereby increases levels of cAMP within brain cells.
This has been shown to lead to increased cognition, improved long term memory, increased wakefulness, and neuroprotection. [3,4,5,6,7,8]
There have been several natural PDE4 inhibitors identified in herbal preparations including luteolin, which is present in artichoke extract. It also inhibits PDE 1 through 5 which have both shown beneficial activity with regards to synaptic plasticity. [1,2]
Artichoke Extract is a safe, effective and natural PDE4 Inhibitor. [1,2] CILTEP contains 900 mg of the highest quality Artichoke Extract in each serving.
The herb Forskolin (active compound extracted from the root of the Coleus Forskohlii plant) has been shown to naturally increase cAMP levels.
It activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase which then increases intracellular levels of cAMP. 
CILTEP features premium Coleus Forskohlii standardized for 20% Forskolin. There are 4 mg of Forskolin in each serving of CILTEP.
Increasing cAMP and inhibiting its degradation supports Long-Term Potentiation (LTP).
Summary: PDE4 Inhibition + Increasing cAMP → LTP → Supports optimal mental performance
Acetylcholine Brain Food™ is designed to promote the production of
acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter essential to mental processing.
Research suggests that the natural compounds in Acetylcholine Brain
Food™ are associated with memory and cognitive function.
- Improved attention to detail†
- Better mental clarity†
- Faster thinking†
- Cuts through brain fog†
To make acetylcholine, the brain needs two elements: an acetyl group and a choline molecule.
An acetyl group is a type of simple molecular building block of
organic chemistry with a chemical formula of C2H30. The acetyl group is
usually present in the brain as Acetyl-CoA. Choline and the acetyl group
are grouped together by the enzyme Choline Acetyltransferase (ChAT).
They are both stored in neurons, released, and then broken down by
another enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AchE). To increase levels of
acetylcholine, we use the following approach:
- Create more acetyl-CoA molecules to provide acetyl groups to ChAT for acetylcholine production.
- Provide more choline in choline producing (cholinergic) neurons for use by ChAT.
- Increase or upregulate the activity of ChAT.
- Decrease the activity of AchE.
Acetylcholine Brain Food™ contains the essential raw materials for
the brain to increase production, achieve balance, and maintain
prolonged activity of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine -- the Learning
