KTX “Cloud IV”
(Best taken with some brain boosting fats like an avocado, macadamia nuts, shot of extra virgin olive oil, or some MCTs, and stacked with coffee or your favorite caffienated (zero sugar).
This is stimulant free brain fuel, which gives versatility to be used any time of the day. KTX CLOUD IV can boost morning caffeine surges or can be used in combination with “calming” products to promote a state of relaxation in the evening. This is part of its adaptogenic versatility.
List of fully transparent ingredients:
Magnesium threonate (100mg)
Mucuna L-dopa (425mg)
Alpha GPC (100mg)
N-acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NAT) (750mg)
Huperzine A (10mg)
“CLOUD 9” is designed to support the body’s natural production of dopamine, one of the primary catecholamines and serotonin which has a popular image as a contributor to feelings of well-being and happiness, though its actual biological function is complex and multifaceted, modulating cognition, reward, learning, memory, and numerous physiological processes. Dopamine is essential for the normal functioning of the central nervous system and is associated with attention, learning, movement, balance, and mood regulation. Dopamine is commonly known as the “feel good” neurotransmitter and is responsible for many of the “happy feelings” we feel from everyday triggers.
BRAIN TARGETING INGREDIENTS
One of the primary ingredients in “CLOUD Iv” is Mucuna pruriens, a botanical which naturally contains L-DOPA, the metabolic precursor to dopamine which can cross the blood-brain barrier.
There are many supplemental forms of Magnesium, but what makes Magnesium L-Threonate unique is that research has shown that this form in particular can improve brain magnesium and may have cognitive enhancing properties. Research on Magnesium L-Threonate has shown it to provide improvements on learning and recall, as well as slowing age-related cognitive decline. L-Theonate is a mineral chelating agent that is able to greatly enhance the bioavailability of magnesium making it highly absorbable.
Amino Combo : L-Tyrosine & L-Theanine
L-Tyrosine provides a crucial amino acid the brain needs to produce the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine.
L-Tyrosine supports mood and resiliency to physical and mental stress with a natural amino acid shown to quickly cross the blood-brain barrier to support production of the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. L-Tyrosine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid, as with today’s stressors, the body struggles to create enough.
L-theanine has been clinically proven to promote an alert state of relaxation without drowsiness, as indicated by an increase in Alpha brain waves.
Additional ingredients include 5-htp and vitamin B6, both selected for their synergistic roles in helping to support the body’s natural production and regulation of dopamine and serotonin.
ALPHA GPC & HUPERZINE A Combo:
Alpha GPC works on many of the same mechanisms as citicholine, but has additional advantages. Studies show 14% power output in strength athletes as well as higher human growth hormone secretion. More importantly, alpha GPC can potentiate the effects of an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor and promotes long-term potentiation.
Huperzine A is an extract from the plant commonly known as northern firmoss (Huperzia serrata), Huperzine A is a naturally derived acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Acetylcholinesterase (AchE) is responsible for the breakdown of Acetylcholine, and so by inhibiting AchE, more acetylcholine is made available to the brain.
In other words, Huperzine A increases the efficacy of the Alpha GPC.
