As our scientific understanding of the aging process grows, the number of supplements available that slow or reverse typical signs associated with aging increases as well. Aging-related changes vary from person to person but can start as early as 20. The following two powerful products from Max Muscle Nutrition support brain function, enhance cognition, and ward off the effects of oxidative stress to support brain health and wellness at any age.
Part of the natural aging process includes changes to memory and overall brain function. neuroVEX was designed with powerful ingredients to help reduce those impairments to cognitive functioning and support brain health including:
■Acetyl-L-Carnitine (or ALCAR) is an amino acid naturally found in the body, and studies have shown a number of benefits to brain function, including increased cellular energy for brain metabolism and increased alertness. Other brain boosting benefits of ALCAR include neuroprotection and antioxidant function to fight damage that can cause age-related mental deterioration.
■CDP (Cytidine 5’-diphosphocholine) Choline or Citicoline has neuroprotective properties and has been shown to improve learning and sharpen memory.
■DMAE Bitartrate (Dimethylethanolamine) is a precursor of choline, which helps the brain optimize production of acetylcholine – the primary neurotransmitter in learning and memory function. DMAE also has antioxidant properties.
■Glucuronolactone (D-glucurono-3,6-lactone) is involved in glycogen metabolism to help fuel the body during exercise. Glucuronolactone is also known to promote general well-being, enhance mood and energy, and improve recovery time.
■Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a fat-soluble phospholipid abundant in the human brain that has been shown to increase acetylcholine. PS can minimize age-related memory decline, improve concentration, and enhance overall brain function.
■Leaves from the ginkgo biloba plant have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years to support healthy brain function. Ginkgo biloba is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that supports both circulation and mental sharpness.
■Bacopa monnieri is an herb used in Ayurvedic medicine to support memory, combat stress, and enhance mental performance. The herb’s antioxidant abilities can help protect the brain against oxidative damage.
■Huperzine A is commonly taken for its nootropic effects. It can be used to enhance memory and protect against cognitive decline.
This powerful product is the ultimate formula packed with science-backed ingredients to help improve focus, memory, and overall brain health. If you have a hard time focusing, if your brain feels sluggish, if you need a brain boost, this is the product for you!
Testimonial: “Since my day begins each morning at 3:40, I’m always in search of healthy ways of staying sharp/awake throughout the day, not only for running my business but also for my family in the evening. After speaking with Steve [at Max Muscle Metro] about neuroVEX, it was clear he truly loved his results from the product. I needed something to stay sharp in the latter part of the day but didn’t want to take more stimulants. I’m not sure exactly how it works, but I can definitely tell you it has provided the all-day mental clarity I needed along with not hitting the mid-afterward wall. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of NeuroVEX. I still take my pre-workout in the morning, neuroVEX around 7:30 a.m. and my 10:30 a.m. Emerge. The rest of the day, my energy levels are great, and I feel clear headed and focused!”

As a person ages, levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) decline, which affects brain function and can even play a role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Max Muscle’s GHTX provides the body with precursors to support healthy levels of GH IGF-1 to support healthy brain function as well as increase lean body mass and aid in recovery. This proprietary formula contains the following key ingredients:
■Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (Alpha-GPC), which is a significant agent for neuromuscular optimization. Alpha-GPC promotes cognitive enhancement that can improve focus and concentration.
■Colostrum (Bovine) that is rich in antibodies for immunity, growth factors and nutrients.
■Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (A-AKG) to enhance the production of GH and nitric oxide.
■Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (OKG) which promotes protein synthesis along with GH and IGF-1 secretion.
■Mucuna pruriens (Velvet Bean) with 10 percent naturally occurring L-Dopa, an inducer of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) to maximize healthy GH levels in the blood.
■GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), known as the brain’s natural calming agent important for relaxation and sleep. GABA also regulates the effects of stress.
■Amino acids L-Glutamine, L-Glycine and L-Lysine have been added for additional GH support.
GHTX provides users with a natural boost to their own levels of GH. Anyone over the age of 20 can take GHTX and it should be considered a requirement for anyone over the age of 40, unquestionably. GHTX is the most advanced formula on the market to support your healthy GH and IGF-1 levels for maximum results.
