- Vitamin D enhances muscle recovery after intense exercise and can aid recovery from infections including Influenza and Covid-19.
- Vitamin E attenuates exercise induced muscle damage and inflammatory response during and after exercise, whilst enhancing immune function (which deteriorates after intense exercise) and reduces risk of infection.
- Creatine Monohydrate increases muscle gain up to twice as much when training and increases water retention within the muscle.
- Creatine also enhances strength, power, speed, size and muscle mass.
- Beta Alanine reduces acidity in active muscles during high intensity exercise.
- Magnesium enhances recovery of blood glucose and muscle soreness after strenuous exercise.
- Prevents Iron and Zinc deficiency, which is associated with diminished physical performance. Iron supplementation increases endurance performance at submaximal and maximal intensities.
- Magnesium enhances glucose availability in brain, muscles and blood which improves exercise performance.
- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) benefits endurance exercise performance and improves aerobic condition.
- Potassium aids the reduction of blood pressure and hypertension.
- Electrolytes are charged vitamins and minerals which are present in body fluids including blood, sweat and urine. They play a key role in essential processes such as muscle function, fluid balance and nerve pathways. Neuroptimax Pro replenishes the key electrolytes: sodium, magnesium and potassium to aid re-hydration after exercise.
- Creatine protects against dehydration by drawing more water into cells and increasing water retention. Meaning you will get the key electrolytes and be able to retain them with the presence of creatine in the drink.

- Acetyl-L-Carnitine increases cholinergic synaptic transmission and enhances learning capacity.
- Essential neuronutrients vitamin B12 (cobalamin), vitamin B3 (niacin) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) improve psychological performance and reduce the effects of tiredness and fatigue.
- Vitamin B3 (niacin) contributes to memory and mental clarity.
- Magnesium and Zinc supports the maintenance of the cognitive function of the brain.
- Vitamin B12 (cobalamin), zinc, iodine and magnesium enhance cognitive functioning, contributing to quick decision making in the heat of the moment.
PERFORMANCE UNDER STRESS
- Replenishes creatine in the brain, which is reduced under stress, allowing your brain to perform at optimal when under stress and contribute to decision making, reaction and thought processes.
- Counter the negative effects of stressors such as stress of competing, fatigue, lack of sleep, and challenging environmental conditions and/or travel.
- Iron and Zinc are strong contributors to mental performance during training, competition and business.
- Enhances brain performance by providing optimal hydration through critical electrolytes.
- DHA is essential to maintain optimal function of the cognition and the visual system.
- Magnesium and Zinc are cofactors in more than 600 chemical reactions and are essential for neuronal processes.
HOW TO USE
As a food supplement, mix one scoop (10.5g) per 250-300ml of water. Shake well and consume one hour before exercise. For athletes after weigh-in you may increase use up to 2 servings (2 scoops).
