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 email@example.com.

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.

DigestMax was made for larger athletes in particular, but is suitable for any person or athlete. The ingredient list is fairly simple but effective.
The first part is the fibre blend consisting of inulin and psyllium husk. Also added in the blend are the probiotics lactobacillus bulgaricus, lactobacillus acidophilis and lactobacillus rhamnosus. These are freeze dried for maximum effect upon intake. The third part of the DigestMax blend is the digestive enzymes DigeZyme and bromeline.
The combination of ingredients improve digestive transit time and absorption time.
Start with mixing 1/2 scoop with 400ml of water and drink immediately. If the product is prepared with water and not consumed immediately it will take on a gelatinous texture, this is normal and we suggest drinking it immediately upon making.
