Norwegian Black Oats.
Your brain consumes ~20% of your body's energy. With its primary and preferred fuel being carbohydrate.
Oats are one of nature's most potent sources of complex carbohydrate - that's the 'good' kinda carbs.
Delivering sustained mental energy. Plus, healthy fats, protein, and fibre.
Grown in Norway's pristine natural environment, our black oats are 40% richer in essential fatty acids than regular oats.
We think they taste better, too.
+ Essential Brain Nutrients
We combine our oats with essential brain nutrients - DHA omega-3, phosphatidylserine (PS) and choline. Plus, vitamins, minerals, and prebiotic fibre.
Choline is one of the most important nutrients for optimal cognitive function.
Like DHA, Choline is an essential brain nutrient that cannot be produced in the amount needed for human requirements (6). It must be consumed through diet.
Our clean, bioavailable choline is produced with advanced NutriGenesis® nutrition technology. Based on Nobel prize-winning research.
DHA is an Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid. Comprising up to 20% of the total Fatty Acid found in the brain.
Your body does not produce DHA, you must consume it through your diet(1).
Our DHA is sourced directly from microalgae. We literally go where the fish go to satisfy their own DHA requirement.
Cutting out the middle fish means there is no compromise on purity, potency or sustainability.
Science shows a strong correlation between gut health and brain health. Scientists in-the-know often refer to the gut as our 'second brain'.
Prebiotic fibre intake is essential for a healthy gut. Effectively feeding friendly bacteria in your gut. Helping to support a flourishing microflora and aiding digestion.
We use high-quality prebiotic fibre from chicory root originating in Europe.
Vitamins & Minerals.
Adequate daily intake of key vitamins and minerals is foundational to optimal brain health and performance. But most of us simply don't get enough from our diets.
Nutropic® bars are packed with vitamins and minerals as clean, bioavailable NutriGenesis®. Including essentials: D3, B12, and magnesium (7-16).
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a lesser known but crucially important nutrient. A key building block for your brain's billions of cells.
PS is most concentrated in the brain where it represents ~15% of the total Phospholipid Fatty Acid pool (4).
Supplemental PS is absorbed efficiently across the blood-brain barrier. And combining PS-DHA has been shown to significantly enhance cognitive function (2,3).
We source our PS from sunflower seeds originating in Europe.
