Picamilon’s effects can be felt quickly and last for up to six hours. Consistent use can show a noticeable improvement in concentration and an increase in energy and endurance.

How does it work?
Picamilon is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it splits into GABA and niacin. The GABA then stimulates GABA receptors producing a calming effect. GABA is the main inhibiting neurotransmitter that regulates neuronal excitability. The niacin causes vasodilation, or a widening of the blood vessels, which can lead to the relief of headaches and lower the blood pressure.

Unlike caffeine and other stimulants, which can help you focus but give you the jitters, Picamilon promotes relaxation.

The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

May 18, 2009

Memory loss worries many of us as we get older. You might wonder whether you’ll become one of the 10 million baby boomers who develops Alzheimer’s disease. Or, maybe you’re simply seeking ways to fortify your memory with memory supplements, memory vitamins, or memory games. Our brain is a powerful thing, but it’s often limited by things like fear, habit, and poor health.

Challenging your brain to learn new things is another important way to prevent memory loss. This can be anything from working crossword puzzles to learning a foreign language. Exercise also can help enhance memory in a variety of ways. For example, it generates blood flow and formation of nerve cells in a portion of the brain called the dentate gyrus. And, it reduces other risk factors, such as cardiovascular disease, indirectly enhancing brain health.

Whether you’re a college student studying for an important test or an aging baby boomer concerned about forgetting a recent doctor’s appointment, there are a number of ways to improve the way you use your mind. Check out these tips:

Supplements are also mentioned as having an effect on brain function. NutraceuticsRx’s Aniracetam contains an amino acid-like compound that clinical studies suggest can enhance perception, memory, focus, concentration and creativity. Aniracetam increases communication between the two hemispheres of the brain and stimulates AMPA and NMDA receptor sites shown to be important in memory formation and concentration.
