The Brain Boss Nutrients
What makes Brain Boss so effective is how nutrient-dense it is and the blend of key vitamins, amino acids and other nutrients that work together to boost cognitive performance and support brain health. You might be thinking, “Okay, great, but what does that mean for me?” Well, if you have ever had an unproductive day, lost hours or even days of the week struggling to focus, get important things done, or feeling burnt out and procrastinating, Brain Boss can help. How can Brain Boss help?
Brain Boss contains the full spectrum of essential B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12) as well as vitamin D and zinc which are vital nutrients for the proper functioning of both the brain and body. The B vitamins and zinc aid in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats to produce vital energy for the body. Both support brain health and are a factor in the maintenance of good health. Vitamin D supports mood and is also a factor in the maintenance of good health.
Brain Boss also has nutrients such as inositol which supports mood and is essential for brain and nervous system health. It also has choline bitartrate which supports healthy nerve transmission, liver function and brain health. In addition, Brain Boss also contains milk thistle (supports healthy liver function, supports immune function, promotes antioxidant activity), Rhodiola rosea (supports cognitive function, focus, mental stamina and provides anti-stress and mood support), acetyl-L-carnitine (provides memory support, fat metabolism, enhanced cognitive function and brain health support), and L-tyrosine (provides anti-stress and mental alertness support).
To improve the effectiveness of the caffeine content and remove the jittery effects and crash, Brain Boss contains L-theanine (provides relaxation support and focus) alongside the caffeine (provides energy, boosts metabolism, promotes endurance, supports enhanced cognitive performance, focus and alertness).
With such an extensive list of benefits for you, it isn’t a surprise that Brain Boss is the smart and healthy choice for cognitive performance and brain health support; combining all these nutrients and benefits into a potent, compact package (1.93 fl oz bottle) with zero sugar that is ready-made to consume. Brain Boss is manufactured in a certified GMP facility located in the U.S.A. to ensure quality, purity and potency.
