Lion's Mane Extract

- Traditional Chinese
- MushroomAntioxidants and Beta Glucans
- Potential Brain Health benefits (1)

Lion’s mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a type of medicinal mushroom that contains a number of health-promoting substances, including antioxidants and beta-glucan. Long used in traditional Chinese medicine, lion’s mane is now available in supplement form. Studies have found that lion’s mane mushrooms contain two special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells: hericenones and erinacines (1). Other animal studies have found that lion’s mane extract may also help regenerate brain cells and improve the functioning of the hippocampus, a region of the brain responsible for processing memories and emotional response (2, 3). Please note these studies are yet to be proven and verified in humans.

Acetyl- L Carnitine: (ALCAR)

- Highly bioavailable form of Carnitine.
- May help improve mental Performance
-Burns fat as a fuel for energy
-Key metabolic system support

L-Carnitine is a compound produced by the body from lysine and methionine. It may be potentially synergistic with Citicoline CDP-Choline.) L-Carnitine is acetylated to produce Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR), which is similar, but crosses the blood-brain barrier more efficiently. Carnitine is best known for its involvement in the mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids. Carnitine serves an important role in the burning of fat for fuel and ferrying fatty acids across the walls of the mitochondria, where they are oxidized and turned into energy.

Rhodiola Rosea

- Adaptogenic herb
- Supports Brain performance and reactivity (*9)
- Optimal cognitive performance (*6)

Rhodiola is an Adaptogenic Herb grown in the mountainous regions of Europe and Asia. Rhodiola Rosea is a herb in the rhodiola genera (Crassulaceae family) which has traditional usage as an anti-fatigue agent and adaptogen compound. Its main chemicals that are thought to be responsible for its effects are Rosavin and Salidroside, Rhodiola Rosea works by helping your body respond to daily stress and it may also contribute to mental and cognitive performance (*6), along with Brain performance and reactivity (*9).

Lutein

- Increase macular pigment density

- May improve visual memory in young adults

- Helps filter blue light

Lutein and structurally related carotenoids are known to accumulate in the eye where they can buffer light and protect underlying retinal cells from oxidative stress. A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial (*ref) found that supplementing with 10 mg of lutein plus 2 mg of zeaxanthin increases macular pigment density and might improve visual memory in young healthy adults.

Zeaxanthin

- Works synergistically with Lutein

- Protect Eye Health

- Improve Visual Performance

Zeaxanthin is a carotenoid that plays a role in protecting the eyes from the harmful effects of oxidation and light-induced damage. Zeaxanthin is a yellow-colored pigment found in the center of the macula

N-Acetyl- L Tyrosine (NALT)

- Bioavailable form of L-Tyrosine
- May help improve focus and concentration
- Reduce stress and fatigue
- Mind and body

N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT) is an acetylated form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine. NALT (as well as L-tyrosine) is used as a nootropic because it acts as a precursor for the important brain neurotransmitter dopamine. In Its acetylated form, NALT may be more rapidly absorbed than standard L-Tyrosine and therefore contribute more to your lifestyle goals.

Bacognize(R) - Clinically supported Bacopa Monnieri Extract

- Standardised to Bacopa Glycosides

- Adaptogenic support-

- Cognitive Wellness

Bacognize® is a proprietary, clean label extract standardized to bacopa glycosides for adaptogenic support targeting cognitive wellness, memory, learning, focus, attention, mood, stress management, emotional balance, and circadian rhythm support for improved quality of life and quality of sleep.

Citicoline CDP-Choline

- Derivative of Acetylcholine
- Combination of Cytidine & Choline.
- Partially converts into Uridine.
- Linked to attentional performance (5)

Citicoline CDP-Choline is a derivative of the neurotransmitter, Acetylcholine, which plays a role in motivation, arousal, attention, learning, and memory. Upon use in supplemental form, Citicoline CDP-Choline breaks down into Choline and Cytidine, with the Cytidine then partially converted into Uridine. Citicoline CDP-Choline is a highly absorbable (4) brain-health nutrient and nootropic, linked to potential attentional performance (5). It is an expensive and rarely-used addition in it’s full efficacy. Often inferior sources of Choline are used instead, or it is used in doses well outside the necessary levels to have an impact.

HMN 24 ® recommends 500mg of Citicoline CDP-Choline taken daily, with one serving in the morning with Rise (™) and in the afternoon with Flow ®. Both products contain 250mg of Citicoline CDP-Choline.

Pine Bark Extract

- High in Pro-Anthocyadinins
- Antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties.

Pine bark provides large amounts of antioxidants known as Anthocyadinins. It helps boost blood flow to and within your brain, by increasing nitric oxide which helps dilate blood vessels.

Bamboo Extract- Stem of the Bambusa Vulgaris

- Boost Memory

- Boost Memory

- Bone Health

Aside from being one of the top ingredients in the cosmetic industry, bamboo extracts are also great in fuelling your mind. Its natural silica can improve cognitive function as it helps toughen up brain tissues and boost neurotransmitter performance

Zinc

- Supports cognitive functioning
- Supports the immune system
- Supports healthyhormone levels

Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Zinc also contributes to normal cognitive function (*1).

Calcium

- Supports neurotransmission (*7)
- Supports energy production (*8)

Calcium is a nutrient that all living organisms need, including humans. It is the most abundant mineral in the body, and it is vital for bone health. Calcium also contributes to normal neurotransmission (*7) (the transmission of nerve impulses between neurons or between a neuron and a muscle fibre or other structure).

B-Vitamin Complex

(Niacin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Thiamine, Folic acid, Biotin, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid))

- Reduce tiredness and fatigue (*3)
- Optimise mental performance (*2)
- Nervous system function (*5)
- Helps strengthen vision (*7)

B vitamins are a class of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism and synthesis of red blood cells. HMN 24 ® use a B-Vitamin blend across the range of our mental performance and nervous system support products, believing they are key components of optimal human performance, particularly vital to ensuring alertness and offsetting fatigue (*3). Riboflavin has also been shown to be a vital part of ensuring our vision stays strong (*7), which is paramount whilst spending much of our day looking at blue light.

Directions for Use

Directions for Use: Take 3 capsules (1 serving) with water or any drink when seeking caffeine-free energy and cognitive function. Great to use late morning or early afternoon. Do not exceed two servings daily.

All HMN24® products have been developed to provide approximately 1 months support, but do not necessarily need to be used every day. All of our products are best used on days where mental and physical workload are at their highest. We believe for most people, this is usually 5-6 days per week with 1-2 days off. Therefore, 24 servings is 28-32 days supply. We all need balance in our life and nutritional support is no different.

BE ENGAGED

If the future of human performance is cognitive then clarity of mind is key.

Distraction is everywhere and natural slumps of energy and focus can be counter-productive, yet are a reality of modern-life. Whether we have slept poorly, eaten less than perfectly, or our morning caffeine hit has worn off, it’s vital that we remain focussed and on form in the afternoon. We do our best work, both mentally and physically, when we are vitally engaged.

Product Overview

FLOW®  has been expertly developed to deliver cognitive function (*1) and Stimulant-free mental performance (*2) through the late morning and into the afternoon.

FLOW® contains 250mg of the hero Nootropic; Citicoline CDP-Choline and 500mg of a 10:1 Lions Mane extract, providing the same active ingredient as 5 grams of Lions Mane Powder. In addition to these two Acetylcholine stimulators, FLOW® delivers another 500mg of Acetyl L Carnitine, 350mg of N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, Zinc Citrate and the extracted equivalent of 400mg of the adaptogenic herb Rhodiola Rosea, to help improve brain reactivity (*9), mental performance and support optimal cognitive function (*1,*6).

FLOW® also provides a B-Vitamin complex to support the nervous system, psychological function (*5) and to help protect vision (*4) for the long days sat at a desk, or in front of blue light.

Flow contains Bacognize® , a proprietary, clean label extract, derived from Bacopa monnieri, standardized to bioactive bacopa glycosides for adaptogenic cognitive wellness, memory, learning, focus, attention, mood stress management, emotional wellbeing, and promotes a balanced circadian rhythm for improved quality of life and restorative sleep. Bacopa has been used in Ayurveda for a multitude of purposes such as its nootropic effects promoting cognitive health. 

Clinical research suggests that Bacognize® can also offer robust cognitive, brain, and emotional wellbeing opportunities.

We have included 300mg in FLOW V2.



In addition, Lutein qualifies as a powerful antioxidant and many studies support its favourable effects on eye health with a number of studies finding that lutein and zeaxanthin combine either help prevent age-related macular degeneration or may slow progression. Lutein and zeaxanthin can also help protect your eyes from harmful high-energy light waves like ultraviolet rays in sunlight and the screen light many of use overexpose on daily.

Lutein has also shown beneficial effects on other tissues, especially the brain, where it’s been associated with improved cognitive performance.

We have included 50mg of Lutein and 10mg of Zeaxanthin to FLOW V2.

FLOW® is designed to replace your afternoon or late morning second hit of caffeine. Instead of reaching for another coffee or a high-caffeine energy drink, which may negatively impact your body’s natural circadian rhythm and damage your ability to embark on a rested evening and sound sleep.

FLOW® is primarily to be used towards the late morning or early afternoon, but for those of you who don’t use RISE™  in the morning or want to eliminate caffeine entirely from their day, FLOW® can be used upon waking also, for a less stimulating morning wake up.

All HMN24® products have been developed to provide approximately 1 months support, but do not necessarily need to be used every day. All of our products are best used on days where mental and physical workload are at their highest. We believe for most people, this is usually 5-6 days per week with 1-2 days off. Therefore, 24 servings is 28-32 days supply. We all need balance in our life and nutritional support is no different.
