SupportMAX NeuroRegular price $79.50 Save $-79.50
When it comes to what we look for at VitaKea, Strom has hit it right on the bullseye with this anti-stress and nerve growth formula. It is truly a valuable support stack for all living - great to get your body and mind back on a healthy track.
Well studied, well-supported ingredients. Targetted and synergistic combinations that consider how to get their very best usefulness. And finally, clinically relevant dosages, and well, in this case… it’s POTENT dosages!
1000mg Choline - Though not absorbed into the brain as efficiently as some other choline sources, Strom have made up for this with a top-notch dose. Choline is used in the brain most significantly for the production of the essential neurotransmitter ‘Acetylcholine’, which improves cognition through its critical role in neuron function. Additionally, cholines has value to a range of other organs and tissues, which this form is very well suited for.
800mg KSM66 Ashwagandha - KSM-66 is the king of Ashwagandha extracts! It has an incredible number of clinical studies behind it, and 22 of those even being of a clinical “Gold Standard”. With this extract you can be absolutely sure of the quality, and relevance of clinical research to your applications. Ashwagandha is shown to be an excellent modulator of cortisol and testosterone, decreasing feelings of stress, mood volatility and all-round improving feelings of calm and well-being. At VitaKea, this herb is our No.1 recommended, which has value for just about every human.
500mg Phosphatidylserine (PS) - A key nutrient and fat-soluble amino acid for the building of cell walls and various cognitive processes, phosphatidylserine is another “excellent for everyone” sort of ingredient. It has also been shown to have cortisol decreasing effects, complimenting the Ashwagandha well.
500mg Lions Mane - A popular fungi of late, this magnificent mushroom has been shown to increase Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). These brothers in the neurotrophic factor family have well studied effects in increasing nerve cell growth and repair. BDNF particularly working within the hippocampus improving memory functions, and NGF promoting nerve cell insulation and anti-inflammatory actions. *** CAPSULE FORM HAS DOUBLE DOSE LIONS MANE! (1000mg per serve).
10mg Bioperine - A particularly anti-inflammatory ingredient, Bioperine is a black pepper extract utilised by many well-formulated nootropic stacks to aid the absorption (a bioavailability enhancer) of other nutrients, in this case providing particular value to the other herbal extracts in SupportMAX Neuro. This is one ingredient we are always pleased to see, given the excellent value to consumer it provides.
Our main suggestion is to use this stack as part of your evening wind-down routine. Particularly with KSM-66 Ashwagandha, we find a calming effect very notable, and at this dose in the stack, it makes for a superb sleep promoter.
Use one serving daily, 1-2 hours before bed.
NOTE: The researched benefits of this stack are mainly demonstrated with consistent use, and so we do highly recommend utilising this daily for at least 3 to 4 weeks.
Cortisol spikes in the morning are actually very valuable to assist you with feelings to “get-up-and-go”, so we don’t recommend this for a morning routine. However, if you are finding yourself overstressed or anxious, half serve dosages may be of value throughout the day. This situation is more of a “test to see what works for you”, even trying lower doses if you feel sleepy.
As always, if you want to try before you buy - feel free to request a sample with any order! And any further questions, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

WHO WE ARE
Ambrosia Nutraceuticals is a collective effort formed in 2015 by three respected industry leaders of the health and fitness industry; Marc Lobliner, Mike Rashid, and Sean Torbati. The three founders of Ambrosia represent professional athletes, professional body builders, and an expertise in everything health and fitness related. Ambrosia is propelled by the spirit of innovation and progression. Marc Lobliner popularized the category of BCAA with his breakout product Xtend. Sean Torbati similarly created the category of NAD+ supplementation by being the first to commercialize a brand new ingredient, Nicotinamide Riboside. Mike Rashid pioneered the concept of "Overtraining" and "Mental Jewels" making him perhaps the only wellness/fitness expert to focus nearly entirely on the mental aspect of physical training and personal development. Collectively, all of this experience has come together to form a new entity. Ambrosia is greater than any individual member, and is poised to change our entire approach to health, wellness, and mental growth.
WHAT WE DO
Ambrosia is a solution based company that is founded on a very unique and purposeful concept. That concept is known as bio-hacking. This is a term that is relatively new to the mainstream - but is well known to the elite of the business world - especially executives in Silicon Valley and other tech hotspots. Bio-hacking in our sense is the exploration and pursuit of obtaining more from our brains and our bodies through the usage of novel and innovative nutraceutical compounds and self-growth techniques. Ambrosia aims to develop products and simultaneously educate about all approaches and ideas related to unlocking our highest potential.
WHY WE DO IT
We do this because of passion. We have a passion for unlocking the absolute limits of the human body; and we fully believe we can produce breakthrough natural products that allow us to get more out of our minds and bodies than we ever previously thought possible. Ambrosia Nutraceuticals was formed to take the human body to the next level using real science and independently researched ingredients. This is not your normal supplementation, but an approach to unlocking the most out of your potential.

Head Honcho Recommendations for Usage
The hunt for a good Rhodiola Rosea supplement has been a long one, but in bringing home the Head Honcho blend it certainly feels to be a success! Ever since HVMN Rise was reformulated, excluding the Rhodiola that we loved so much, a gaping hole was left. It's been over a year, but now I can confidently say we don't just have a replacement, but an improvement.
You may be thinking, "Well hey, surely there were others out there?"
And you wouldn't be wrong - IF you could trust the label... but unfortunately in this industry, thanks to a few shady folk, that's a luxury we don't have. In fact, Rhodiola Rosea is one of the most adulterated and faked herbs on the market. Even some that is true R.Rosea has been shown to have depleted active contents by as a result of poor extraction and storage practices.
This 2016 study investigated 40 commercially available Rhodiola Rosea products from a range of sources (including retail outlets & online sources), and analysed authenticity. Notably by Rosavin and Salidroside content - which principle active components of the herb that provide its benefits) 80% of the products were poorer quality by Rosavin content than registered for. Seven were suspected to not even be Rhodiola Rosea, instead another plant of the Rhodiola family, and in one case, not even from Rhodiola origins.
Why is there so much fake Rhodiola Rosea on the market?
The majority of Rhodiola Rosea is sourced from wild harvest (hunter-gatherer style) from the Asia and Europe regions. Right now the demand is especially high and supply isn't reliable so some suppliers are letting quality control standards slip in favour of higher profits.
Why am I so excited about this Rhodiola Rosea Supplement?
Yes the flavour is good, definately admirable considering the arse flavour Rhodiola usually has. The packaging and user experience Head Honcho provides is also well above the common standard. The fact that this is a straight Rhodiola Rosea supplement, with no other herbs or stacks involved means it provides real flexibility in use case - a biohacking dream.
But the real exciting part... is that we know that Head Honcho are providing the real deal. It's not just the fact that they use the patented, strictly controlled and studied RhodioLife extract. That's awesome, exactly the sort of ingredient sourcing we love. But you know what gets me really pumped up? It's better than trusted sourcing, hell, we don't even need the trust with this knowledge. So how do we KNOW and feel so confident this is a quality extract?
The good man Tamim who runs Head Honcho sent over the raw material lab reports to prove it.
The numbers check out, showing Rosavins @3.032% and Salidrosides @1.14%. Want to see for yourself? shoot me an email at email@example.com and I'll gladly share the full results. Tamim has made them all available, including the full spectrum analysis, microbial data, heavy metals... a full Certificate of Analysis. Maybe I'm nerding out here, but a full open book like this makes me a real happy camper. Its assurance for quality that your getting what you pay for, and not a whole bunch of extra junk.
How do I use Rhodiola Rosea?
While I definately reccomend the Head Honcho 40-day Destress Protocol, this is also an awesome stacker to go with coffee or caffeine in any form.
We won't get too stuck into the mechanics of it here, but Rhodiola Rosea has demonstrated MAO inhibitory activity which can compliment caffeine benefits well. From anecdotal experiences, the theory of this plays out really well in practice. Providing a longer, perhaps slightly elevated ride from the caffeine. Without the need to jack up the caffeine itself and getting all jittery.
But hey... "Not a doctor" here so as always... this isn't medical advice. Go consult someone with an approved shiny piece of paper on his wall for that sort of service.
Any questions at all, just shoot me an email over at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll gladly help out in anyway I can. Heck, if you're keen, even hit up email@example.com. The dude is passionate about his craft and I'm sure he would love to hear from you.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), also referred to as ubiquinone, is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like molecule found naturally in every cellular membrane in our bodies. It is a normal part of our diet but is also endogenously synthesized (made by our body).
It is essential for the proper transfer of electrons within the mitochondrial oxidative respiratory chain and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production.
From these attributes it is easy to understand why ensuring sufficient supply of CoQ10 is critical for anti-aging support and general wellbeing.
Tranquil MindRegular price $64.90 Save $-64.90
What exactly goes into the Tranquil Mind formula?
Primal Herb has chosen each herbal extract for its proven effectiveness, safety, research, and historical use.*
One of the most-researched compounds responsible for the health benefits of green tea, l-theanine is an amino acid known to help regulate mood. Its known to to provide support for anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders.*
Like 5-HTP, l-tryptophan is an amino acid precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for better mood and low anxiety. In plentiful amounts, it boosts serotonin to help stress and sleep problems.*
Ever tried 5-HTP supplements for sleep and stress relief? This African shrub is the most common natural source for this amino acid, proven to help produce more serotonin, and thus boost mood, balanced sleep, and lower stress.*
Reishi Spores (Ganoderma lucidum)
Is one of the most studied medicinal mushrooms that has been shown to be an important ally in supporting stress, sleep-promoting properties and the overall calming of the mind.*
Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)
The blooming vine known for producing deliciously sweet passion fruit is also thoroughly researched for its sedative, sleep-improving, and digestion-enhancing effects. Traditional herbalists used it as an anti-depressant.*
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
One of the modern era’s most famed adaptogens hailing from India. Studies show its antioxidant capabilities are so potent that it gives robust protection against stress, therefore holistically reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.*
Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis)
Similar to Ashwagandha, Schisandra is a strong and protective adaptogen supported by both centuries of traditional use and scientific research. Known to fortify the body against stress, depression, and anxiety.*
Tranquil Mind also includes piperine, the active alkaloid chemical found in the rinds of black pepper fruits (or corns). This compound immediately increases the bioavailability of all other powerful plant compounds added to this blend – so you can really feel the difference!*
No Fillers, No Dying Agents, No Additives, Just 100% Pure Extracts.
Add to hot water, coffee, tea, or smoothie... or even integrate into some food dishes!
Tranquil Mind can be taken day or night – with or without food. :)
Goes down very well in a before bed relaxation tea.
Each ingredient that is selected for inclusion is supported not only by solid research and scientific evidence, but also a strong body and background of evidence-based traditional use dating back thousands of years.
In the realm of stress relief, anxiety support, and even depression support, many herbs have been explored, both scientifically and experimentally. This includes botanicals selected not only for how they are shown to possibly support symptom relief, but also for how they help strengthen the body to better handle and adapt to stress, which further reduces anxiety, stress, and sleep problems twofold.
None of these herbal ingredients are proven or approved to replace doctor-approved or mainstream therapies for mood disorders.
Instead, think of these ingredients as an extra shield or even additional nutrient support to help one’s flexibility, durability, and stamina when facing challenges to mental wellness and mood.
* DO NOT CONSUME IF USING PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION, AND ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFOREHAND.
Nothing effective in the world of stress relief and hormone balance could ever skip out on ashwagandha. A powerful root that is surprisingly closely related to tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers, it was an important part of the ancient healing practices in Ayurveda from India.
A nourishing tonic and adaptogen in one, ashwagandha is widely known for benefits to reproductive, endocrine, and thyroid health.* But, over the long term, this boost also reaps amazing results for stress and mental health, since these states of wellness can often be governed by the wild world of hormones and neurotransmitters.*
One of nature’s richest sources of natural 5-HTP, this plant from Africa contains phytochemicals that closely mimic a very important neurotransmitter in our bodies that eventually gets transformed into serotonin. In fact, most 5-HTP supplements contain extracts directly from this plant.
Serotonin is vital for regulated mood, good sleep, and normal low anxiety levels. As such, Griffonia has been used extensively in traditional medicine—and studied closely by scientific researchers—for its ability to promote better sleep and reduce anxiety naturally.*
This medicinal mushroom provides an array of beneficial support. Reishi can support Anxiety and Depression; Breast cancer patients reported reduced anxiety and depression, as well as increased quality of life when they received reishi along with their cancer treatment. The group not receiving reishi did not report these effects.
Chinese and Japanese herbalists traditionally recommend it for insomnia due to its sleep-promoting ability *
The world favorite tea plant is known for many health benefits that can be found in green, white, black, and oolong teas, which all originate from the same plant. Beyond boosting energy and metabolism, tea contains l-theanine, an amino acid known to help with anxiety and stress.*
Though it doesn’t work quite like 5-HTP, l-theanine as an amino acid and neurotransmitter can work similar to it. On the one hand, it blocks certain receptors that may feed into or fuel stress and anxiety; and on yet another hand, it stimulates the production of stress-relieving neurotransmitters in the brain, such as GABA.*
Another amino acid in our lineup ensures that the depression, anxiety, or stress-addled brain gets the optimum natural neurotransmitter support it could possibly get.* In the case of l-tryptophan, this chemical is found in good amounts in certain foods and promotes mild stress relief.
In higher supplement amounts, however, l-tryptophan could have even more marked effects on mood and stress.* Our body needs this amino acid, but it can’t produce it on its own and might be especially scarce in those facing mood disorders. Along with 5-HTP and l-theanine, this is an herbal ingredient we include because we don’t feel it should be overlooked.
A beautiful and evocative flower could be one of the best natural remedies for depression discovered in the herbal world thus far. Though it’s nowhere near being considered a replacement for antidepressants, studies nevertheless show that this blooming vine could have great promise one day.
What’s more, passionflower is supported by both evidence-based traditional use as well as research for benefits to insomnia and anxiety, too.* As an added plus, it may have perks for digestion, especially digestion problems related to nervousness and anxiety.*
This bright red berry from Asia is wrapped in legends and folklore about its miraculous health benefits. Though it doesn’t come close to the stories about its powers, this adaptogen herb holds its own well in the realm of research—especially for protection against stress and anxiety.*
Studies also show that schisandra could have very useful properties for relieving depression.* The berry tonic appears to have an impact on GABA, serotonin, and dopamine in beneficial ways that help balance mental health and function. And not only that—the botanical may improve sleep over the long term, as well as reduce the chances of neurological disorders.*

Choline plays many essential roles in the body. Notably, it is needed for the synthesis of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter, as well as lecithin, which helps maintain cell membranes, transmit nerve impulses, process fat and cholesterol, and perform other tasks. Studies have been on a dose of 500g but Strom has doubled that giving you 1g to help maintain proper function of key neurotransmitters.
Ashwagandha has recently become incredibly popular within the health and fitness industry and for good reason. Ashwagandha has a large number of health benefits across a variety of areas.
You will see a decrease in anxiety, cortisol. Furthermore, it can help boost testosterone.
Magnesium may improve your sleep. It plays an important role in your nervous system, helping to activate mechanisms that quiet and calm you. It may also help relieve anxiety and depression, which can interfere with sleep.
This edible mushroom may promote nerve growth and protect the brain from the onset of mental health issues related to old age. Studies have shown that due to Lion's Manes ability to help produce new cells and increase cognitive function it may reduce mild symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Only recently (2017) Brandalise et al found that lion's mane helps to stimulate nerve growth factor (NGF) production. This means this is an effective brain drug because NGF is a neuropeptide that helps maintain neurons which are the cells responsible for helping your brain process and transmit information. So, whether you need to study for an exam, write a paper, or focus better at the gym, the neurotrophic benefits of lion’s mane mushroom can help.
A second study by Mori K et al in 2009 backed up the claim that lion's mane can improve cognitive function. They conducted a double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial on people and showed that lion’s mane was effective for significantly improving cognitive function for up to 16 weeks when continually used.
Essentially this will help manage and store neurotransmitters.
We need to help control and manage these because we can deplete this with a poor diet overtraining, too many stimulants and this can lead to demotivation, anxiety and unhappiness. This is a very good feel good ingredient.
Lemon balm is herb in the mint family which has long been used to support cognitive and mood function. By soothing symptoms of anxiety and stress, lemon balm is widely recognised as having properties to support sleep. It supports the production of the neurotransmitter, GABA, which helps to control the body’s response to stress. Like L-theanine, lemon balm facilitates sleep by encouraging relaxation and decreasing stress and anxiety.
Together, L-theanine and lemon balm can be a powerful remedy for stress and anxiety. By supporting calm and relaxation, these two natural agents can effectively prepare the body for restful sleep.
L-theanine encourages relaxation and supports sleep by facilitating several changes in the brain. Studies have shown that L-theanine increases levels of the neurotransmitters gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin and dopamine — compounds that work to regulate mood, emotion and sleep. Therefore by increasing levels of these soothing brain chemicals, L-theanine will support sleep.
Consumption of Zinc helps to have less wake-ups in the night. It is an excellent & safe sleep aid; and also has a calming & antidepressant effect.
