We upped the game in this category too by getting 10 to 1 extract to make it more potent. Artichoke Extract has been shown to enhance memory and learning, improve motivation and mood. and it magnified all these great effects when mixed with Forskolin. One of the greatest things about our Artichoke is that it is 10 to 1 and it can stimulate the growth of new neurons in the brain!
The following is quoted from NootropicExpert.com with authorized permission from David Tomen the author and creator of the NootropicExpert.com, the authority on nootropics.
Artichoke Extract (Luteolin) is a natural PDE4 inhibitor in the brain. Excess PDE4 degrades cAMP. cAMP is important for neural signaling within brain cells.
As a secondary messenger in neurons, cAMP produces proteins needed for neuron and synapse growth. This process is called Long-Term Potentiation (LTP).
LTP is the process where synaptic connections get stronger in response to electrical stimulation in the brain. This process happens naturally through life experience. It’s a critical part of synaptic plasticity.
Brain structure changes over time through synaptic plasticity. And is how experience is recorded through learning and memory.
When PDE4 increases, cAMP is depressed. And learning, memory and mood suffer.
Artichoke Extract helps:
Reduce Inflammation. Artichoke Extract helps reduce inflammation in the brain. By preventing the over-production of cytokines, and taming the flames of inflammation in neurons. Preventing memory loss and neurological dysfunction.
Artichoke Extract contains a naturally occurring compound called luteolin. Luteolin is a powerful phosphodiesterase (PDE4) inhibitor. Excess PDE4 in your brain is bad news because it degrades cAMP.
Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) is a derivative of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is fuel for mitochondria in each of your cells. cAMP is part of that cellular energy source.
