Suggested Use

This is a well-tolerated blend, with many users experiencing improvements immediately, but significantly more benefits are experienced as it is consistently consumed over time.

Two capsules consumed before breakfast is the standard recommendation for getting started.

To improve the outcome of this therapy, consider combining the supplementation with a clean anti-inflammatory diet. The plant-derived compounds are strong, but they work even better when not competing for space with junk foods, dairy, gluten, and similar burdensome foods. Lifestyle factors are an integral part of any program intended to optimize health and should be part of the process in order to achieve maximum results.

As part of a comprehensive stress management regimen, it is recommended to consider these complementary formulas:

  • Support Adrenals – B complex with synergistic botanicals and minerals for adrenal gland support
  • Support Minerals – Essential macro and trace mineral formula for daily maintenance
Allergen Information

Contains: No Allergens
Formulated to be free of: Gluten, corn, yeast, artificial colors and flavors.

Got Stress?

In the course of daily life, you are presented with a wide array of stressful challenges. Common situational stressors – like from work, family and finances weaken your cognitive performance. Fortunately, nature provides powerful nutrients that help to modify hormone production and physiological responses to stress.

Natural Aids for Mental Performance

Though some products offer cognitive support, many can lead to a post-use “crash,” drowsiness, or other unwanted side effects.

Before the advent of pharmacology, our ancestors used time tested plants to help them in times of stress. Today, these same plants can be used to mitigate the adversarial effects of modern stress with no risk of being habit forming.

A few of these medicinal plants have been classified as adaptogens, which means they can improve your body’s reaction to stress by regulating hormone and neurotransmitter levels. Powerful adaptogens that support neurologic function include Bacopa monnieri, ashwagandha, Rhodiola rosea, and Eleuthero root extracts. From these come  crucial compounds that support memory, focus, mental clarity, relaxation, and sleep.

To enhance brain function, Adapt Align combines these plants, along with the botanical extracts l-theanine and phosphatidylserine, to form a powerhouse formula that might be just the nutritional advantage you’ve been searching for.

The Adapt Align Edge

Boost Your Brain Power

While promoting resilience to stress with nootropic compounds, Adapt Align also provides your brain with antioxidant support. When free radicals proliferate due to oxidative stress caused by everyday events, your brain becomes  inundated with fight-or-flight responses. Your calm, focus, and mental all become compromised.

Adapt Align provides full-spectrum support for stress-management. It contains well-researched ingredients known for neuroprotective, calming, and anti-fatigue properties:

  • Bacopa monnieri (in the proprietary Bacognize® form) exhibits antioxidant properties and an affinity for serotonin receptors within the brain. This activity helps regulate emotions and optimize your mental state.
  • Ashwagandha supports adrenal glands’ stress management functions by modulating cortisol activity. It is beneficial in supporting proper mood regulation and restoring a sense of calmness under stress.
  • Suntheanine® is an extremely pure form (due to patented enzymatic processes) of the amino acid l-theanine, which supports tranquility by increasing alpha brain wave activity, which is a characteristic of states of mindfulness and anti-anxiety effects.
  • Rhodiola rosea extract contains rosavins, compounds used in anti-depressants that enhance blood flow within the brain, supporting support the nervous system, mood regulation, mental clarity, work performance and the sleep cycle.
  • Eleutherococcus senticosus is a strong adaptogenic botanical shown to support memory and focus. In addition to its ability to improve stress resilience, it also contributes to healthy heart rate responses to stress, resulting in protection from anxious states of mind.
  • Phosphatidylserine (from sunflower seed) provides key amino acids and fatty acid nutrients for neuron health. It is known to reduce stress-induced excretion of cortisol, thus helping the stress response to be less volatile and more effective.

Science-Based Ingredients

  • Bacopa Extract – Native to Asia, this extract is derived from an ancient tree species. In this improved form of Bacopa, known as Bacognize®, there is enhanced activity at serotonin receptors [1]. This is advantageous for cognitive function since serotonin is integral for memory, mood, and communication with the primary cognitive neurotransmitter acetylcholine [2].
  • Ashwagandha Root Extract – Ashwagandha has been used as a tonic within Ayurvedic medicine for millennia to support energy and mental focus. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen and is rich in withanolides, which helps to balance cortisol levels. Through this role, Ashwagandha supports stress reduction and helps to defend against insomnia [3]. Additionally, this extract may support cognitive function by enhancing reaction time and task performance [4].
  • Rhodiola rosea Root Extract – Rhodiola is an adaptogen that contains potent rosavins that impact cognitive health. Through its adaptogenic roles, Rhodiola may support stress tolerance, energy levels, attention, and mood [5,6]. Rhodiola promotes a positive mood by balancing levels of key neurotransmitters, such as serotonin [7].
  • Eleuthero Root Extract – Also known as Siberian ginseng, this extract has been used within traditional Chinese medicine for its ability to support cognitive health. Rich in eleutherosides, Eleuthero is an adaptogen that enhances your body’s stress tolerance by targeting cortisol levels. This extract is also used to support higher social functioning [8].
  • L-Theanine – This amino acid is found within black and green tea and is known for its neuroprotective properties. L-theanine supports stress defense and promotes cognitive function by enhancing accuracy and alertness [9,10]. Suntheanine®, an improved form of L-theanine, helps to further promote relaxation by increasing alpha wave activity, without drowsiness. By promoting a calm state, Suntheanine® supports mood and sleep quality [11].
  • Phosphatidylserine (from sunflower seed) – This vital phospholipid is found within the cell membrane of every brain cell (neuron). By supporting sugar utilization, phosphatidylserine may support processing speed, memory, and attention [12].
