Brains + Balls: The Research

Brains + Balls: The Research

Physical performance, focus, and mindset go hand in hand. Whether we are in the gym or on the field, we all know the difference between when our head is fully and enthusiastically in the game, versus just going through the motions. If our mind is right, we go for that extra rep, add that extra weight, take those extra steps, land our shots, land our punches – and have a fantastic f*cking time doing it all!

That’s why BRAINSUPREME created Brains + Balls™: to help get your head fully in the game with enthusiasm and focus, every time. Take it about :20 minutes before your next workout and you will notice and appreciate the difference in your performance the very first time you do.

This isn’t like some over-caffeinated burst of energy, for which there are countless product alternatives. Brains + Balls is something entirely different. It’s about bringing your brains (and balls) fully into the game so you go for it, with everything you have, and a smile to boot!

Learn more about the research behind Brains + Balls™ as follows:

BRAINSUPREME Mushroom Blend: We grow our own organic and biodynamic functional mushrooms that make up our proprietary mushroom blend. The proverbial secret sauce – not much more to be said other than no other products offer it, and it’s the shit! Next Level Shit!

D-aspartic acid: This can increase the release of a hormone in the brain that will ultimately result in testosterone production. It also plays a role in increasing testosterone production and release in the testicles. Here is supporting research from the National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine:

  • The putative effects of D-Aspartic acid on blood testosterone levels: A systematic review. 396 retrieved records, 23 animal studies and 4 human studies were included. In vivo and in vitro animal studies revealed the effect of D-Asp depending on species, sex and organ-specific. Our results showed that exogenous D-Asp enhances testosterone levels in male animal’s studies, whereas studies in humans yielded inconsistent results. The evidence for this association in man is still sparse, mostly because of limited number and poor-quality studies.

Green Tea Extract: Many studies have shown green tea extract can promote weight loss, blood sugar regulation, disease prevention, and exercise recovery. It can also help keep our skin and liver healthy, reduce blood fat levels, regulate blood pressure, and improve brain health. Here is supporting research from the National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine:

  • Green tea extract enhances parieto-frontal connectivity during working memory processing. “Our findings provide first evidence for the putative beneficial effect of green tea on cognitive functioning, in particular, on working memory processing at the neural system level by suggesting changes in short-term plasticity of parieto-frontal brain connections.”
  • Green tea effects on cognition, mood and human brain function: A systematic review “We reviewed and assessed 21 studies, 4 of which were randomized controlled trials, 12 cross-over studies (both assessed with an adapted version of the DELPHI-list), 4 were cross-sectional studies and one was a cohort study. The reviewed studies presented evidence that green tea influences psychopathological symptoms (e.g., reduction of anxiety), cognition (e.g., benefits in memory and attention) and brain function (e.g., activation of working memory seen in functional MRI).”

Tongkat Ali: Tongkat ali is one of the most popular herbal remedies in traditional folk medicine because of its purported benefits for sexual health. It’s touted as a remedy for erectile dysfunction (ED), low sex drive, and male infertility. The herbal supplement is also said to improve physical fitness, boost mood, and promote bone health. Here is supporting research from the National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine:

Ginseng Extract: Ginseng has been used in Asia and North America for centuries. Many use it to improve thinking, concentration, memory, and physical endurance. It’s also utilized to help with depression, anxiety and as a chronic fatigue natural treatment. This well-known herb is known to boost the immune system, fight infections and help men with erectile dysfunction. Native Americans once used the root as a stimulant and headache remedy, as well as a treatment for infertility, fever, and indigestion.

Black Pepper. Black pepper can improve cognitive function and memory by stimulating the chemical pathways to the brain. Here is supporting research from the National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine:

  • Memory Enhancing Effect of Black Pepper in the AlCl3 Induced Neurotoxicity Mouse Model is Mediated Through Its Active Component Chavicine. The study revealed that Black Pepper improves memory and chavicine is a lead compound producing pharmacological effects of BP.
