What is I.Q?
Monkey I.Q. is an advanced nootropic formulation designed to enhance neurotransmitter activity and improve overall cognitive function, giving rise to further benefits throughout the body. This specific class of ingredients boost the flow of blood and oxygen in the brain, removing toxins and improving mental clarity for a more productive day. The benefits of supplementing with I.Q aren’t only confined to firing your brain on all cylinders, but may also be a major player in assisting muscle function, recovery and growth, as well as improving both athletic and sexual performance over time. The arrangement of nootropics in I.Q will also assist sleep and stress reduction, giving you drive and potentially providing a stimulant free alternative to pre workout supplements (especially for athletes), negating the “over-excitability” often associated with these. In short, Monkey I.Q is a multi-faceted product you simply can’t afford not to try!
Here’s a brief summary of the ingredients in I.Q and their benefits:
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a compound known for its ability to improve cognitive function, as it assists the regulation of biological cell activities, modulating the activity of receptors, enzymes, ion channels and signalling molecules, thus reducing mental and physical stress. PS may play a major role in how well you recover after intense exercise, as prolonged intense exercise has been shown to reduce circulatory choline concentrations. Since choline is a precursor to acetylcholine - a neurotransmitter which assists with muscle movement, coordination and balance, supplementing with PS is an important consideration when looking for a product which is going to enhance athletic performance in the long term.
St John’s Wort - As well as exerting positive effects on the nervous system by maintaining healthy levels of serotonin and norephinephrine, St John’s Wort assists in decreasing inflammation and nerve irritation, making it an important consideration for those partaking in rigorous exercise. There is some evidence to suggest this little herb may increase the production of growth hormone and help already fit and healthy individuals to maintain a lower body fat percentage.
Dimethylaminoethanol bitartrate (DMAE) is a compound with a high bioavailability and has been shown to improve memory, learning and rational thinking. As a precursor to choline, it assists in the synthesis of acetylcholine. DMAE improves oxygen and glucose uptake in the brain and thus, increases energy metabolism and overall vitality.
Bacopa Monniera is a nervine tonic traditionally used in ayurvedic medicine to improve overall clarity (boosts brain activity), by reducing anxiety. This powerful antioxidant increases the growth of nerve endings which results in enhanced nervous system communication.
Vinpocetine is a powerful memory enhancer which increases cerebral blood flow, resulting in elevated oxygenation, glucose utilisation and improved brain cell energy (by impacting the production of ATP). This plant extract improves visual function, cardiac output, blood flow to various organs and dilation of blood vessels, giving rise to its new-found popularity as an athletic aid.
Safety & Bioavailability
Safety and Biological activity are always the most important factors for us when formulating a product. The NSF program we conform to, deals significantly with various testing procedures such as potency, microbial content and stability. Procedures consider and identify any issues related to the organoleptic, physical, chemical, biological and microbiological characteristics of the components under long term storage, ensuring the blend of ingredients are safe/stable and maintain their potency over a period of time.
To ensure enhanced bioavailability, we choose only the best known actives and blend these so they work synergistically to achieve the claims we make.
Why Is Monkey I.Q Better Than Other Nootropic Products?
Choosing a blend of nootropics means you can easily manage their intake without worrying about any negative interactions which may occur from taking incorrect dosages of single source ingredients. When you have an already hectic lifestyle, you don’t need to worrying about what to take and when; I.Q makes for a convenient addition to your brain boosting nutrition! It is true that using a blend limits you to that particular arrangement of nootropics and buying individual ingredients will allow you to play “chemist” and develop your own blend, but before you do, consider the fact that I.Q has been specially formulated by an anti-aging physician with a wealth of knowledge in this field!
