Co Q10, short for coenzyme Q10, is a substance found in every cell of the body. It is a powerful antioxidant and is essential in helping to convert food into energy. Antioxidants fight free radicals that cause damage to cellular membranes what can lead to cellular death. Free radicals are the culprit to the development of some deadly diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular problems. Scientists believe that free radicals have something to do with the aging process as well.
Creatine is a popular substance used by athletes to enhance muscle mass and provide more strength. The body produces creatine, which stores high-energy phosphocreatine which in return releases energy to help cells during stress. Aside from producing muscle mass, creatine is also useful for the brain, bones, muscles, and liver.
DMAE Bitartrate is the powdered form of Dimethylaminoethanol, a compound which is naturally produced by the brain. DMAE is the precursor for choline, a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in the cognitive functions of the brain. These neurotransmitters also affect person's emotions as well as the amount of their mental energy.
Endo-pectinase is a combination of methylesterase, with demethylates pectin, and polygalacturonase, which hydrolyzes ą-D-1, 4-galacturonide. This enzyme is known to break down pectin, a type of fiber that can be found in plants. The most common fruits that have a high level of pectin are apple and banana.
Fiber is good for the body but it can also block other minerals and nutrients from being absorbed by the body, due to the fact that the body does not produce these fiber-breaking enzymes, but they are produced by microorganisms that live in the stomach.

Gingko Biloba 24/6 Extract
Gingko Biloba has been used as a supplement to improve blood flow to the brain; thus, increasing memory and cognitive speed.
Most studies have used a standardized extract of Gingko Biloba, which is 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones. The common dosage for improving cognitive functions is 120 ml - 600 ml every day.
Glucoamylase is a type of enzyme found in the digestive system. Amylase is naturally produced in the mouth and pancreas, but can also be found in plants and animals.
Glucoamylase breaks down both α-1,4 and α-1,6 bonds, so the stomach can fully digest the starch found in vegetables and other foods high in carbohydrates, such as potato, bread, and rice. The glucose that is freed from the break down becomes the source of energy for the body.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract comes from the ground seeds of grapes used to make red wine. Grape seeds are known to have high concentrations of Vitamin E and linoleic acid. Another abundant compound in grape seed and skin is resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant similar to oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs) that are also found in grapes.
