Natural*

You will never find artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or bulking agents in our products. The base of every Vite product (bars, drink mixes, shakes) is 100% natural, real food and the vast majority of our functional ingredients are too, in certain cases, most notably certain vitamins, it is not feasible to source enough of the active ingredient from natural sources thus in these cases we will use a synthetic version.

The Science

Choline

Choline is an essential nutrient for supporting and improving cognitive function. Choline is cited mainly for its Neuro-Protective abilities and its effects of Memory & attention. Choline consumers often report cognitive stimulation, improvements in speed of thought and mental clarity whilst research has shown an AcetylCholine precursor to reduce some cases of Cognitive Decline *1.

Choline rich foods include eggs and red meat and lack of this nutrient has been linked to mental defects and inabilities to flush toxins and poisons out of the brain.

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola Rosea, a flowering plant found in Asia, Europe & North America is widely used to stimulate the nervous system, extenuate anxiety, enhance work performance, relieve fatigue, and prevent high altitude sickness. Most notably for Vite Brain, Rhodiola consumers have shown significant reduction in self-reported, anxiety, stress, anger, confusion and depression *22.

Panax Ginseng

Panax Ginseng is the most researched member of the Ginseng Family. Ginseng is a plant that is found predominantly in North America and Eastern Asia. Heralded in medicine for centuries Ginseng’s benefits have been noted for a plethora of uses including;  enhanced memory, vitality, libido and cognition along with reduced fatigue, anxiety and depression. Ginseng has even been used to treat certain types of cancer.

Panax Ginseng is a powerful natural adaptogen that has shown in studies to improve cognitive performance during sustained mental activity *2, improve quality of life and social functioning *3 and has notable effects on increasing libido *4. Further studies have found Ginseng to improve blood flow *5 and reduce cognitive decline *6.

Bacopa Monnieri

Bacopa Monnieri is a traditional herb used for Alzheimer's disease, improving memory, anxiety, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), allergic conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, and as a general tonic to fight stress. Bacopa is predominantly found in the wetlands of India, Africa and Southern America. Some studies have shown Bacopa to improve word recall & prevent rises of anxiety *7, Improve learning ability *8 and improve memory in both healthy persons and those in cognitive decline *9. Bacopa interacts with dopamine and serotonin systems, but its main mechanism concerns promoting neuron communication. It does this by enhancing the rate at which the nervous system can communicate by increase the growth of nerve endings (dendrites).

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) is a highly bio-available form of L-Tyrosine. L-Tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is responsible for producing noradrenaline and dopamine in the brain (noradrenaline enables the body to perform well in stressful situations whilst dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter linked with reward-motivated behaviour). NALT is popular amongst busy professionals and college students due to its reported ability to enhance cognition during periods of sleep deprivation and its perceived ability to aid performance under stress. Tyrosine has been shown in some studies to improve cognition during extended wakefulness *10 reduce effects of stress and fatigue on cognitive performance *11, preserve working memory *12 and reduce environmental stress *13.

Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl-L Carnitine (ALCAR) an Acetylated form of the amino acid L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is present in protein rich foods such as red meats, chicken, lamb and some dairy produce. Its primary role is to aid the metabolism of fat throughout the brain and body and thus ALCAR is used for mental energy, brain signalling, alertness and memory. ALCAR is considered an antioxidant that removes toxins from the brain and cells, helping to strengthen neutrons, repair receptions and fight against brain ageing by strengthening the myelin sheaths that surround and protect our nerves. Importantly for our formula, studies have shown in some cases Carnitine can significantly improve attention *14, increase blood flow *15, increase cognitive status and physical functions in certain demographics *16, reduces cognitive fatigue and improves cognitive focus *17.

Caffeine & L-Theanine

Caffeine is a powerful stimulant and Nootropic, it is the most widely used stimulant on the market and is believed to be consumed daily by up to 90% of Americans. Caffeine sensitises Neurons and provides mental summation, it is shown to be a reliable and effective method of producing stimulative effects *18.

L-Theanine is an amino acid found primarily in green tea, it is considered slightly relaxing but non-sedative. A combination of L-Theanine and Caffeine is noted to be synergistic in promoting cognition and attention, when consumed together these substances have been shown to reduce susceptibility to distraction *19, promote alertness *20 and improve performance on cognitively demanding tasks 21*.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is essential for proper brain development and function, it is shown to produce the mood regulating hormones serotonin and norepinephrine which may be important for nerve communication whilst it enables the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates. Vitamin B6 rich foods include Pork, Poultry Fish & Bread. Daily intake of Vitamin B6 is advised for digestive, immune, muscular & nervous system function.

Preliminary research has linked Vitamin B6 to reducing risks of degeneration and stroke, seizures, chronic pain and depression whilst deficiencies in Vitamin B6 are linked to fatigue, loss of coordination and mental confusion.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is shown to be essential for synthesis of DNA, RNA and Neurotransmission, along with the maintenance of the protective myelin sheets around neutrons. Deficiencies can lead to nerve disease, imbalance and cognitive decline.

B12 is advised daily to aid cerebral circulation, neurotransmission and mood regulation. Foods such as Shellfish, Liver and Crabs are notable high in their Vitamin B12 content and those who do not intake enough on a daily basis may feel tired and lethargic.

Iodine

Iodine, a dynamic nutrient present in thyroid hormones, is responsible for regulating thyroid function, supporting a healthy metabolism, and aiding growth and development. Iodine is also essential for brain development during specific time windows influencing neurogenesis, neuronal and glial cell differentiation, myelination, neuronal migration, and synaptogenesis. About 1.5 billion people in 130 countries live in areas at risk of iron deficiencies. Iodine contributes to normal cognitive function *23.

The Science 

Biotin
The word “biotin” comes from the ancient Greek word “biotos,” which means “life” or “sustenance.” Biotin is a crucial nutrient for energy metabolism, nervous system function and to help keep skin, hair, eyes & liver healthy.
Biotin can be found naturally in eggs, organ meat, nuts, soybeans, cauliflower and bananas.
Most notably for Vite Biome, Biotin plays a pivotal role in supporting metabolic function and works as a co-enzyme to help break down food, including carbohydrates, fats and protein and hence carries the EU approved health claim ‘Biotin contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism.’

Calcium
Calcium is known for its role in supporting bone density & cardiovascular health. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and can be found naturally in yoghurt, dairy, sardines, tofu, leafy green vegetables, legumes & grains.
Most notable for Vite Biome is calciums relationship with digestive enzymes, facilitating proper nutrient breakdown and hence carries the EU approved health claim ‘Calcium contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes.’

Chicory Root Fibre
Chicory Root Fibre is a dense source for the Prebiotic Fibre Inulin. Inulin is not digested on its way through the body and delivers fructose molecules to the gut which feed thee bodies friendly gut bacteria. These helpful bacteria play a role in reducing inflammation, fighting harmful bacteria, improving mineral absorption, bowel movements and blood sugar levels. (3)

Digestive Enzyme complex
Protease, Amylase, Lipase, Cellulase & Lactase are Digestive Enzymes that facilitate the breakdown of food molecules and enable the body to efficiently utilise energy from macronutrients, absorb micronutrients and ensure an efficient digestive process.
Protease is used to breakdown proteins.
Amylase is used to breakdown carbohydrates.
Lipase is used to breakdown fats.
Cellulase is used to breakdown cellulose.
Lactase is used to breakdown lactose. (4)

Probiotic complex
Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Bifidobacterium Longum, Lactobacillus Plantarrum & Saccharromyces Boulardii are strains of Probiotics. Delivered live to the gut they play an integral role in fighting harmful bacteria other organisms, supporting our digestion and absorption, ensuring our immune system functions well and balancing our immune response so we are not inflamed or allergic. A single serving of Vite Biome provides 10 Billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of ’friendly bacteria’. (5)
