About Cognitive Aminos™:
*Age-related decreases in levels of several amino acids compromise
cognitive function. Amino acids are important intermediates in the
production of neurotransmitters in the brain and are involved in
neuromodulating activities. l-Tyrosine is an amino acid naturally
synthesized in the body. It is the precursor of the neurotransmitters l-dopa,
dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, supporting mood and mental
clarity. dl- Phenylalanine provides a mixture of two essential amino acids,
d-phenylalanine and l- phenylalanine. In the body, l-phenylalanine converts
to tyrosine, enhancing neurotransmitter support. A separate pathway allows
both d- and l-phenylalanine to support levels of the mood-elevating compound
phenylethylamine, a function not provided by l-tyrosine.
Taurine is considered an inhibitory amino acid, helping to modulate
levels of excitatory amino acids such as glutamate in the brain. This
provides neuroprotective action important for maintaining proper brain cell
health. Acetyl-l- carnitine has multiple effects on brain metabolism,
including helping to maintain taurine levels in a particular part of the
brain. It also contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter
acetylcholine and may support dopamine receptor function. As a result,
acetyl-l-carnitine plays a role in memory, attention, mental clarity, and
Cognitive Aminos™ provides amino acid precursors for healthy
neurotransmitter activity, supporting optimal mental function and healthy
