Why Neurologists, Psychiatrists & More Trust mbg's brain guard+ Supplement
When it comes to longevity, caring for your brain is top priority—and evidence shows that the sooner you start caring for your brain with intention, the better. Small, consistent actions to nurture your cognitive function and performance can have a profound effect on your memory, recall, executive function, and overall brain health. The thing is, most people don't consider their brain health until later in life.
At mbg, we're challenging people of all ages to maximize their cognitive health and longevity potential by implementing brain-healthy lifestyle habits, foods, and supplements in their daily routines. In the supplement arena, no neuronutrients are more effective at delivering a boost of brainpower than nootropics.
In the dietary supplement space, nootropics are ingredients that help the central nervous system operate at its very best (we're talking peak performance, here!). These unique compounds (which include neuronutrients, phytonutrients, botanicals, and bioactives) support cognitive function, neurological well-being, and brain longevity in a number of ways.
Each of these brain-boosting ingredients imparts unique nootropic mechanisms and actions in our body and brain. There are countless supplements on the market that include these ingredients, each designed to promote brain health in different ways.
However, not every brain health supplement includes scientifically backed (i.e., by clinical research trials) nootropic ingredients in efficacious doses and forms that deliver proactive support to promote brain longevity for all ages. Enter: brain guard+.
We know that the time to think about your longevity and nurture your cognitive well-being is—well, now! Whether you're 20 or 80, brain guard+ was designed for you. This innovative formula includes premium and patented nootropic ingredients (i.e., citicoline as Cognizin®, kanna as Zembrin®, and resveratrol as Veri-te™) clinically shown to promote cognitive flexibility, improve memory, increase processing speed, bolster neurotransmitter production, and increase cerebral blood flow to enhance mental clarity.*
Whether your goal is to elevate executive functioning, improve neuroplasticity, promote recall of memories, or combat occasional brain fog, mbg's brain guard+ can help you achieve your brain health goals today, tomorrow, and down the road.* But don't just take our word for it—leading cognitive health experts agree that this nootropic formula yields incredible results for brain health and longevity.

A brain-centric diet with loads of plants, healthy fats like omega-3s, and quality protein is essential. But to even further enhance cognitive vitality with targeted nutrients and phytonutrients, I recommend brain guard+. With citicoline for attention and memory, kanna for cognitive flexibility and calm, and resveratrol for cerebral blood flow and antioxidant support, this formula is remarkably effective for brain protection."*

"Elevates executive function and enhances cognitive flexibility."
"Evidence-based botanicals with nootropic actions are one of my specialties as a naturopathic health care practitioner. One of the most exciting botanicals in the cognitive arena is the South African succulent Sceletium tortuosum (aka kanna). Featured in brain guard+, this clinically researched and patented Zembrin® extract promotes mental agility and calm—at the same time. Through its impact on serotonin levels, brain waves, and neurocircuitry, this unique plant extract helps reduce reactivity to stress, elevate executive function, and enhance cognitive flexibility."*

"brain guard+ has greatly improved my cognitive performance and ability to cut through stress."
"As a full-time editor juggling graduate school and a small business, my brain is constantly taking in information, and I often find myself battling brain fog by the afternoon. Even though I'm still in my early 20s, I want to protect, preserve, and even sharpen my cognitive function and be a lifelong learner! Enter brain guard+. Adding this clean and research-backed formula to my daily routine has greatly improved my cognitive performance and ability to cut through stress. It makes me feel aligned and able to tackle a full day of productivity (minus the afternoon fog)."*

The most palpable benefits are enhanced mental clarity and mood-balancing effects.*
"I could go on for days about how much I love this nootropic supplement, but for me, the most palpable benefits are enhanced mental clarity and mood-balancing effects.* Hero neuronutrient citicoline supports healthy levels of important neurotransmitters, namely dopamine, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine.* These neurotransmitters are known to support mental processes such as clarity and focus. Citicoline has also been shown via research to support attention, processing speed1, and mental energy by increasing ATP in the brain (i.e., supporting brain energy reserves).* Complementing citicoline, antioxidant phytonutrient resveratrol has vasoactive properties and is clinically shown to support blood flow to the brain and cerebrovascular health2.* Enhanced cerebral blood flow means optimized delivery of oxygen and nutrients to my brain, supporting a clear head and overall cognitive function. (Yes, please.)"
