“I feel so much more in control of my mind.
Calmer, focused and productive.“

EGCG is defined as a major green tea catechin that contributes to beneficial therapeutic effects, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and immunomodulatory effects [S].
EGCG plays an important role in the response to oxidative stress and gene regulation, two central mechanisms of aging.
It markedly improves spatial cognition in mice. (S)
A Japanese team also demonstrated that supplementation with EGCG reduced the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by 4 times and promoted the formation and maintenance of synaptic connections between neurons (S).
There’s a link between anxiety, reaction to stress, and the brain’s most fundamental function, maintaining cognition.
If we get too stressed when working hard it can make us perform inadequately, make poor decisions or stop the activity entirely.
Research shows treating animals with L-theanine before stress is applied results in reversal not only of cognitive impairment, but also of the elevation of stress hormones and oxidative damage. (S)
Among the many benefits Ginseng has to offer, local administration of ginseng in brain-damaged rats showed a significant improvement in learning and memory [S].
Ginsenoside Rb1, a compound in Ginseng, has been reported to increase the uptake of choline in cerebral cholinergic nerve endings [S] and modulate acetylcholine (Ach) release and uptake [S], which as you may know from our supplement LucidEsc, plays a huge role in memory.
Blackberries are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C.
The dark blue colour ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits which are compounds that help protect cells from damage by harmful free radicals.
Enhances beneficial signaling and can help prevent inflammation in the brain and improve both motor control and cognition. (S)
Also rich in potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorous and beta-carotene.
Guarana, is a fruit bearing tree, the seeds of which are ground into powder and used in traditional Amazonian medicine.
Contains naturally occurring caffeine. An effective light stimulantion of the central nervous system. Our’s is 22% of the 50mg of guarana so 11mg of caffeine per pill.
Increases level of dopamine in brain, improving mood and feelings of well-being.
Another ingredient which holds antioxidants and may have a neuroprotective effect at higher concentrations. (S)
Guarana has shown slight improvements in studies testing cognitive scores for memory and reaction time. (S)
Often used as a brain booster, due to its ability to increase alertness and mitochondrial capacity while providing support for the neurons.
L-carnitine is a fascinating compound that may be able to improve cognitive aging (S), enhance learning (S) and promote mitochondrial health by increasing the mitochondria’s potential to shuttle fatty acids in and out of cells to produce energy.
Vitamin B3 plays a vital role in converting the food you eat into usable energy and helps your body’s cells carry out important chemical reactions that occur in the brain. (S)
Dietary Suplementation of Resveratrol has been shown to increase the lifespan of multiple model organisms. (S)
Resveratrol supplementation reduced the risk of death in mice from a high-calorie diet by 31%, improving health and survival! (S)
Additionally, the compound may set off a chain of events that protects brain cells from damage (S)
Experts agree that combining Resveratrol with Pterostilbene can really bring about incredible results compared to using either one in isolation.
Naturally fermented, Coenzyme Q10 is a compound that aids mitochondria during energy production.
It’s used as an all-round health booster, with antioxidant effects helping to produce energy for the cells in the body.
CoQ10 is often cited as one of the best supplements for men over 40 years of age.
Pterostilbene supports normal aging by mimicking the effects of calorie restriction or fasting, which have powerful health-stimulating effects.
Pterostilbene — and calorie restriction — trigger the body to release adiponectin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar and fatty acid metabolism. (S)
Pterostilbene supports your telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of a DNA strand. Telomeres naturally start to break down as you age. Pterostilbene strengthens the enzymes that protect your telomeres. (S)
Studies have found that pterostilbene supports healthy motor function, cognition, and memory at “diet-achievable” amounts. (S)
The scientists from one study called it a “potent neuromodulator” of aging. Which means it helps aging progress normally, keeping your brain and nerve cells healthy and strong.
A cousin to Resveratrol the two chemicals blend well together and can elevate the results compared to using either on their on its own.
A large epidemiological study consisting of 2,100 female twin pairs found that increased vitamin D levels correlated with increased telomere length in white blood cells. (S)
The difference in telomere length between those who were vitamin D sufficient vs insufficient corresponded to 5 years of biological aging. (S)
The study also found that the participants that regularly supplemented vitamin D also had longer telomeres than those not taking supplements. (S)
Another study that included both males and females, again found that higher plasma vitamin D was significantly associated with longer telomere length in white blood cells. (S)
Some of the mechanisms by which vitamin D is thought to delay the shortening of telomeres is by decreasing inflammation and cell proliferation, both of which accelerate telomere shortening. (S)
Black Pepper Extract (piperine) is a common spice and herb most people are familiar with and used historically to improve digestion.
Helps to increase the absorption rate, effectiveness and metabolism of the other ingredients.
At ViviDream we put unbeatable quality as one of our highest priorities.
That includes bringing the ingredients in their most natural form together without any unnecessary extras.
We only add a small amount of Magnesium Stearate per capsule.
This allows the powders to flow freely and prevents clumping during manufacturing.
And that’s it!
