FAST FACTS

Fast Fact

ALCAR is a necessary ingredient for acetylcholine formation, which boosts memory, mental alertness and fluid thought.

Fast Fact

Palatonise™, which is a low-glycemic carbohydrate, improves blood sugar levels for a sustained duration, thereby providing fuel to your brain for a longer period, enabling you to concentrate and focus for longer periods.

Fast Fact

Sugar is your brain’s preferred fuel source – not table sugar, but glucose, which is your body processes from the sugars and carbs you eat. That’s why a glass of OJ or another fruit juice can offer a short-term boost to memory, thinking and mental ability.

Fast Fact

Alpha GPC is the most bioavailable form of Chloline currently available. Choline is a water-soluble nutrient which acts as a precursor to the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine which supports memory and brain function.

Fast Fact

Tempted to skip breakfast? Studies have found that eating breakfast may improve short-term memory and attention. Students who eat it tend to perform better than those who dont’. Food at the top of researcher’s brain-fuel list include high-fiber whole grains, dairy and fruits.

Fast Fact

L-Theanine increases alpha-wave production in the different areas of the cerebral cortex. Alpha-brain activity in humans indicates wakeful relaxation as well as increased creativity, better performance under stress, improved learning and concentration as well as decreased anxiety.

Fast Fact

The human brain requires lots of fuel to function. Whilst the human brain only accounts for 2% of our total body weight, it uses over 20% of our energy resources. Most of the energy the brain uses, comes from carbohydrates which our bodies break down into glucose or blood sugar.

INGREDIENTS

Palatinose

Isomaltulose

Sustained Energy

PalatinoseTM is a naturally sourced smart carbohydrate, providing full carbohydrate energy (4kcal/g) in a more balanced way thanks to its low-glycaemic profile.  By improving fat oxidation during physical activity, it prolongs energy supply. In addition, it is the first non-cariogenic carbohydrate, gentle on teeth.

 

PalatinoseTM (isomaltulose) is purely based on sucrose from sugar beet. It is 100 % vegan, kosher, halal and non-GMO.

 

Low GI carbohydrates like Palatinose™ have been found to improve attention and memory function with studies showing improved memory and mood 3 hours post consumption. 

 

Palatinose™ is a source of glucose and fructose to the body. Palatinose™ digests and absorbs slowly thus providing a steady supply of energy. The intake of slow digesting carbohydrates in children and adolescents has been found to benefit elements of cognitive function like memory, attention and mood.

Brain Health

Betaine

Trimethlglycine

Neuroprotection

Betaine is derived from Choline a natural component of beetroot. Betaine is an important cofactor in the methylation process, whereby methyl groups are donated for key processes which include the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, the synthesis of melatonin and the antioxidant CoQ10, the regulation of DNA function, influencing the levels S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe) and folate which are also key mediators of methylation.

Brain Health

Suntheanine

L-Theanine

Focus & Attention

Suntheanine® is a high-quality form of the amino acid L-Theanine which is found in tea leaves. L-Theanine promotes improved focus, attention and clarity, as well as a calming and relaxing feeling without inducing drowsiness. L-Theanine is most remarkable in its anti-anxiety potential during exposure to stressful conditions. L-Theanine works by stimulating alpha brain waves which are associated with an alert and relaxed state.

Brain Health

Alcar

Acetyl-L-Cartine

Antioxidant

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is involved in brain energy production as a source of Acetyl Coenzyme A which is used in energy-yielding processes inside the mitochondria of the brain. ALCAR is also used for the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters like glutamate, aspartate, GABA and acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is essential to the processes of learning and concentration.

Brain Health

TVP

Vitamin Premix

Anti-Fatigue

Teen Vitamin Premix (TVP) is a blend of 12 highly bioavailable vitamins to help the body meet its daily needs. This multivitamin blend consists of Vitamin A, D3, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, Folic Acid and Biotin. Adequate intake of vitamins is essential for numerous physiological processes that affect brain function, like energy production and neurotransmitter synthesis. Research shows increased cerebral blood-flow and memory rapidly after the intake of a high-dose multivitamin.

Brain Health

L-Tyrosine

L-Tyrosine

Neuro Support

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid precursor to dopamine, the “feel-good” hormone. Intake of L-Tyrosine is effective in maintaining mental performance both in the presence and absence of stress exposure. Tyrosine, in doses used in Learnergy, has been found to improve memory in students in tests and also improves task-switching performance.

Brain Health

Maltodextrin

Glucose Source

Rapid Energy

Maltodextrin is maize-derived carbohydrate that has a high digestibility and rapid absorption rate, supplying glucose to the brain. Glucose is the main fuel for the brain. An acute intake of glucose has been shown to facilitate cognitive performance: it improves memory, attention and alertness and decreases fatigue.

Brain Health

Myo-Inositol

Myo-Inositol

Mood Support

Myo-Inositol is a metabolite present in high levels in the brain. It is important for brain cell function given its involvement in the synthesis of cell membrane phospholipids which are protective barriers for brain cells. Myo-Inositol is also an important signaling molecule which allows neurotransmitters to function. Supplementation with Myo-Inositol may support mood during stressful situations.

Brain Health

Alpha-GPC

Glycerophosphocholine

Concentration

Alpha-GPC is highly effective at increasing plasma and brain choline levels. Choline is important for the synthesis and release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in learning, memory, motivation, attention, and skeletal muscle contraction. Alpha-GPC appears to easily cross the blood-brain barrier and is the best absorbed form of choline for brain functional benefits. Choline is also involved in brain development and its uptake is highest during growth.

    My daughter loves the orange flavor and drinks it now every morning with the relaxify. She also says it is nice that it is made for teens because some products are just for kids or adults. Great product.

  128. Monique (verified owner)

    Both my boys, 15 and 17 years old, have started using Learnergy and they both feel the difference in their focus and concentration. They also love the taste.

  129. Liesel Stroberg (verified owner)

    Both of my kids have said they can feel a difference on the Learnergy. They both say that they do not fidget as much, can focus for a longer period of time and find that they take more time in an exam as they are more focused to explain the answer better. I will definitely recommend this product during crunch time of studies.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

In this day in age, teens have a lot going on, from school, to sports to growing their social network. With all these things on the go it’s not uncommon for there to be some gaps in their diet. At Bioteen, we recognise that this could be a problem, so we’ve created a range of all-in-one and stand-alone products that not only help to fill these gaps, but also use evidence based nutraceuticals to enhance various areas of focus that can help your teen reach their full potential. One of these areas of focus is academic performance.

 

Getting good grades doesn’t only feel good, but it is also an important step towards a successful future. In most cases, the grades you get in high school will determine what opportunities will be available to you after school. Besides optimising the structure of your teen’s study sessions as well as their study environment, there is also a range of clinically proven nutraceuticals that may improve your teen’s ability to learn. We have developed Learnergy using these ingredients, in order to have a meaningful impact. Let’s have a look at how all these ingredients work together to help us do that…

 

Brain energetics

Although the brain accounts for roughly 2% of your body weight, it uses a staggering 20-25% of an average adult’s energy, at rest! Interestingly, the brain’s primary source of fuel is glucose, with the adolescent brain using up to 120g/ day on average (1). This is one of the reasons why supplying the body with enough energy is very important, not just for general health, but for brain health as well.

 

With this in mind, it becomes clear that in order for the brain to work at its peak, we need to make sure that it is getting enough glucose on a regular basis, especially when rates of glucose utilisation go up, like during cognitively challenging periods (2,3). Does this mean that our teens should be eating tons of sugar to make up this amount? Definitely not! High sugar diets are usually not only low in nutrients, but instead of giving a sustained release of energy, they give short and sharp bursts. At Bioteen, we’ve taken this into account and that’s why we use a blend of intermediate and slow-release carbohydrates from glucose polymers derived from maize starch and Palatinose™ respectively. This blend means that when your teen uses Bioteen’s Learnergy, that their brains are getting sustained energy release which can lead to an improved mood (no more ‘hangry blood sugar crashes’) and also improved concentration and memory (4,5).

In addition to supplying energy in the form of glucose, Bioteen’s Learnergy also contains a number of key B-vitamins that are essential cofactors for the effective release of energy. Basically without enough of these vitamins, the amount of energy you consume would be irrelevant, because the body wouldn’t be able to access it (6).

 

Brain chemistry

The brain is made up of various neurons (aka brain/ nervous system cells) that communicate with one another via neurotransmitters, or chemical signalling molecules.

 

The type of signalling molecule produced can have a variety of effects on your teen’s academic performance by affecting their anxiety levels, ability to concentrate, memory and mood. Learnergy® contains effective doses of:

 

(1) Tyrosine, which is a precursor to dopamine, which is an essential neurotransmitter linked to a wide variety of functions including motivation and reward both of which can affect a person’s performance on cognitive tasks (7).

 

(2) L-Theanine (as Suntheanine®), which has an anxiolytic or anti-anxiety effect by displacing the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate while also increasing levels of the inhibitory neurotransmitters GABA and glycine and increasing dopamine as well as your feel-good-neurotransmitter serotonin (8).

 

(3) Acetyl-L-carnitine which in addition to being involved in the production of GABA, also acts as a precursor to acetylcholine which is another inhibitory neurotransmitter that forms part of the parasympathetic nervous system (aka the relax and digest nervous system) (9,10).

 

(4) Various B-vitamins, which in addition to acting as co-factors in important energy production reactions, also act as cofactors for the formation of important neurotransmitters (including dopamine, serotonin and GABA) (11).

 

Protection against stress

 

Stress isn’t all bad, experiencing some stress is an important part of healthy development which helps your teen develop resilience. But, because the teen brain is still developing, teens may respond to stress differently than adults and so it is important that we prevent stress from becoming toxic. Toxic stress happens when your teen is chronically stressed which can put them at an increased risk for stress-related mental disorders like anxiety and depression.

 

This toxic, psychological stress can also increase the amount of oxidative stress experienced by the brain which can further increase the risk for certain diseases. To counteract this, Learnergy contains the antioxidant nutrients, acetyl-L-carnitine and vitamin A, C, D and E as well as betaine hydrochloride which specifically helps to maintain cell volume to reduce osmotic stress (which is protective against neurocognitive decline) (12,13).

 

Brain wave modulation

The brain produces electrical impulses that help the neurons communicate behaviours, emotions and thoughts with one another. They are classified according to their frequency into four types: alpha (less than 8–13 Hz), beta (more than 13 Hz), theta (less than 4–8 Hz), and delta waves (less than 4 Hz). Brain waves are generated in response to certain feelings (like relaxation or anxiety) but can also be stimulated to enhance those same feelings. Alpha waves are related to feelings of relaxation with an effortless level of alertness (these are ideal conditions for ‘flow’, or being ‘in the zone’) whereas beta waves are related to highly stressful situations or where there is a difficulty in mental concentration (14).

Bioteen’s Learnergy contains L-Theanine in the form of Suntheanine™ as well as Palatinose, which when consumed together produce exemplified results with regards to generating alpha brain waves. These are ideal because in addition to feeling relaxed but alert (which create an ideal setting for learning), they are not associated with feelings of drowsiness, which can be counterproductive (15-18).

The bottom line

Bioteen’s Learnergy contains a unique and targeted blend of nutrients and nutraceuticals to support concentration, memory and stress reduction. Available as a delicious and refreshing pre-study drink, Bioteen’s Learnergy is the perfect stimulant free study aid.
