The brain is the most complicated structure we have yet to encounter in all of nature. Essentially, it is a living biological computer. Its job, every single day, is to absorb, process, store and recall on request, countless information. Therefore, it is understandable that as a result of the pressures of the modern world demanding increasingly more of our minds in increasingly less time, the job is more difficult now than ever. This holds particularly true for students – held to a higher standard of study, requiring for more information to be absorbed than ever before.

In advance of exams and throughout collage semesters absorbing, processing, storing and recalling information on request is even more important and the more efficient the brain is the better prepared you are for the pressure of exams.

According to extensive research carried out by the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) the brain relies on nutritional components to perform its daily job to its optimum potential. The research being carried out was designed to understand what a memory is and how a memory is made within the brain. They discovered that for the brain to make a memory it needs to make connections. These connections are essential to the network of neurons (brain cells) which make up our entire brain. Research discovered the fuel for building memories and connections in our brain requires 3 important ingredients – omega 3 fatty acid DHA, uridine and choline. Supplementing balanced diets with Mastermind from Revive Active can help to boost the intake of these key ingredients.

Give yourself the best shot at achieving the results you want from your studies. Mastermind contains 11 active ingredients in each sachet including DHA powder, Uridine, Choline, Pantothentic Acid, Zinc, Vitamin B9 and Vitamin B6. It has been developed in conjunction with the Brain Performance Nutrition Centre at University of Northumbria and contributes to normal mental performance, normal cognitive function, the maintenance of normal brain function, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal function of the nervous system and normal psychological function. One sachet really packs a punch.

With 350mg of DHA in every sachet, Mastermind contains 100mg more than the recommended daily intake required to contribute to the maintenance of normal brain function, giving you an extra boost of this vital nutrient for brain health. Revive Active source their DHA from sustainable marine algae which is also suitable for vegetarians.

When free radicals damage cells throughout the body – including those important nerve cells in the brain needed for mental performance – the process is known as oxidative stress. Mastermind contains 80mg of Vitamin C and 12 mg of Vitamin E which both contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Mastermind also contains 2.5µg of Vitamin B12 which contributes to the normal function of the nervous system, 6mg of Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) which contributes to normal mental performance and 5mg of Zinc which contributes to normal cognitive function.

Mastermind is the ideal companion for an intensive study schedule. With no stimulants or plant extracts, it is easy to take in just one sachet a day, blended in juice or water.

Developed and manufactured in Ireland Mastermind is available in a 12-sachet supply which lasts students one month, as it is recommended that students take 3 sachets per week; Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
