Neurogenesis 1.0 Proprietary Blend
Phenylpiracetam is a phenylated analog of piracetam (a GABA derivative). It’s up to 60 times more potent than piracetam. At its heart, it’s a powerful nootropic supplement with exceptional cognitive enhancement benefits. Phenylpiracetam also has fewer side effects than psychoactive drugs like Vyvanse, Ritalin, and Adderall. It is highly bioavailable, which means that it’s absorbed by the body’s circulatory system at a high degree and rate.
Phenylpiracetam was the brainchild of Russian scientists, who developed the drug in 1983. Their goal? To enhance the mental acuity and cognitive stamina of cosmonauts on long space missions. They succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. Cosmonaut Alexander Serebrov took Phenotropil (our present-day phenylpiracetam) on a 197-day space mission. He reported that the drug increased his efficacy in navigating the physical and mental complexities of his grueling space mission.
The Benefits Of Phenylpiracetam
Scientists and technologists maintain that phenylpiracetam boosts mental focus, cold tolerance, physical stamina, and emotional wellbeing. This robust supplement also facilitates learning and memory. Kiya Therapeutic’s Neurogenesis 1.0 provides these benefits in a robust proprietary blend.
- Brain function, memory consolidation, and learning. Studies show that phenylpiracetam increases the density of dopamine D2 and D3 receptors by 29% and 62% respectively. It also increases NMDA receptors in the hippocampus (responsible for long-term memory) and nicotinic receptors in the cortex. An increase in nicotinic receptors leads to exponentially improved neural and neuromuscular transmission. Basically, phenylpiracetam increases dopamine (associated with feelings of pleasure) and norepinephrine (associated with mental alertness) in the brain.
- Increased emotional wellbeing and serenity. Phenylpiracetam has been to shown to increase dopamine transporter (DAT) inhibitor levels in the brain. This results in extracellular concentrations of dopamine. Racetam nootropics supplements reportedly exhibit antidepressant profiles similar to tricyclic drugs and SSRIs in several whole animal studies. Users report greater feelings of contentment when taking phenylpiracetam.
- Greater energy levels without resulting in over-excitation. Studies headed by Russian psychopharmacologist Valentina Ivanovna Akhapkina (the same who oversaw the development of phenylpiracetam) show that this nootropic supplement effectively decreases asthenia (fatigue and physical weakness). Patients who reached a daily dosage of 100mg reported increased feelings of vigor. Many patients also reported no negative effects on their wellbeing, even after their sleep was decreased by 1 1/2 hours each night.
Nutraceuticals, Nootropics, and Neurogenesis Supplements
Many consumers question the efficacy of nutraceuticals, while others call them miracle drugs. At KIYA Therapeutics, our focus is on the overall well-being of our customers. As such, we take careful steps to comply with all FDA requirements regarding supplements. Although it’s true that the FDA does not require nutraceutical manufacturers to verify the health claims on their product labels, one thing is clear: the FDA will take action against nutraceutical companies that claim to cure, treat, or mitigate any number of diseases.
Such a claim would designate dietary supplements as drugs and therefore, violate the articles of section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) [21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(B)]. Products may not be sold as drugs without prior approval from the FDA, as described in sections 301(d) and 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. §§ 331(d), 355(a)].
At KIYA Therapeutics, we clarify that the FDA has not evaluated the statements on our product labels. Our products are not drugs and therefore, are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. However, our products can reduce the risk of certain conditions. Where applicable, you will see links referencing clinical studies that support our claims. If you are thinking of adding nootropics or nutraceuticals to your diet, we advise thorough research on your choices. If you have any questions, we are happy to provide answers.
Nootropics And Neurogenesis
In a nutshell, nootropics are natural and synthetic compounds that facilitate cerebral circulation, memory retention, and enhanced concentration. They are sometimes called “smart drugs.” The story of nootropics began with Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, the recognized father of cognitive pharmacology.
In 1964, Dr. Giurgea synthesized piracetam, the world’s first nootropic. It is a derivative of the neurotransmitter GABA and has purportedly shown clinical efficacy in treating neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s. At present, the FDA does not recognize the racetam group of synthetic compounds as federally controlled substances. This means that piracetam is not a legally recognized drug. However, there are studies proving its efficacy.
In 1977, a double-blind study found that piracetam improved geriatric memory over a two-month period. Meanwhile, a recent 2013 study indicated that piracetam was key in improving the short term cognitive performance of patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery.
Still another study in 2016 showed that piracetam improved mitochondrial function, a key strategy in treating early-stage cognitive decline.
In light of this, the question begs to be asked: How do consumers recognize a true nootropic from a counterfeit one?
To guide us, Dr. Giurgea released his 5-point definition of a beneficial nootropic:
- A true nootropic must enhance learning and memory ability.
- It should provide neurological protection against oxidative damage.
- It should decrease cortical and sub-cortical dysfunction, which contributes to neurocognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s.
- It should aid the brain in retaining learned behaviors and memory functions under disruptive conditions.
- Most of all, a true nootropic should have little to no toxicity.
Taking Safe Nootropics and Neurogenesis Supplements
Although nootropics are generally derived from synthetic ingredients, some herbs can also be classified as a nootropic in nature. Such herbs include ginseng, ashwagandha, Schisandra, Gotu Kola, rosemary, sage, calamus, and bacopa.
It’s imperative that consumers do thorough research before including nootropics in their diet. On the other hand, nootropic supplements like Modafinil have been on the US market since 1998; it can be obtained through a doctor’s prescription. One study showed that Modafinil increased the cognitive performance of helicopter pilots who had been awake for two 40-hour periods. It’s no secret that Modafinil is popularly known as the Limitless drug (based off the 2015 TV show).
How KIYA Therapeutics’ Science-Backed Neurogenesis Supplements Work
Our Neurogenesis 1.0 supplement is scientifically formulated to enhance cognitive abilities. Each 400 mg capsule contains a proprietary blend of Phenylpiracetam, Huperzine-A, Acetyl L-carnitine, Lion’s Mane, Creatine HCL, and N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine.
You’ll also see Huperzine-A in our Neurogenesis 1.0 formula. In low doses, Huperzine-A has been shown to reduce the degeneration of important neurons. It contains Cholinesterase inhibitors that block the degradation of acetylcholine, which facilitates learning and memory. Meanwhile, phenylpiracetam may amplify the effects of caffeine, increasing your stamina for extended study/ work sessions.
Out of an abundance of caution, pregnant mothers, children, and those with medical conditions should check with their doctors before including new supplements in their diets.
