CILTEP Nootropic - 60 ct.

CILTEP is a natural nootropic that combines artichoke extract and forskolin to naturally induce long-term potentiation. Formulated by its creator Abelard Lindsay, CILTEP is a healthy way to stay focused, alert, and motivated for hours.

The benefits include:

  • Increased motivation and mental endurance
  • Increased ability to study and retain information
  • Improved concentration and long-term memory
  • Improved mood and social ease

CILTEP is used every day by thousands of people around the world, including CEOs, Wall Street Executives, college students, scientists and creatives.

Users typically experience results for 8-14 hours. One bottle contains 60 capsules.

Ingredients

Artichoke extract contains Luteolin, a natural inhibitor of PDE4 [1,2]. PDE4 is an enzyme that breaks down cAMP molecules, messenger systems that relay signals in the brain. Studies have correlated lower levels of the enzyme PDE4 to significant increases in normal mental performance, including increased cognition [3], improved long term memory [4], increased wakefulness [5], and neuroprotection. [6,7,8]

Forskolin is derived from the plant Coleus forskohlii which has been widely used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine [9]. It has also has been extensively studied due to it’s ability to increase levels of intracellular cAMP molecules [10]. Combined with Luteolin from Artichoke Extract, forskolin is theorized to synergistically increase the duration of cAMP in neurons. *

Vitamin B6 is an essential vitamin and an important enzymatic cofactor in normal metabolic and psychological function. [11] CILTEP features the metabolically active form of Vitamin B6 for optimal bioavailability (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate).

Acetyl-L-Carnitine, or ALCAR, is an acetylated form of the amino acid L-Carnitine that has been shown to cross the blood brain barrier. [14]. Known for its roles in energy metabolism and mitochondrial protection, the addition of ALCAR to the CILTEP formula helps combat feelings of brain fog and fatigue. [15,16]

Artichoke Extract

900 mg

Artichoke extract contains Luteolin, a natural inhibitor of PDE4. PDE4 is an enzyme that breaks down cAMP molecules, messenger systems that relay signals in the brain. PDE4 Inhibitors have been shown to have significant nootropic effects including increased cognition [5], improved long term memory [6], increased wakefulness [7], and neuroprotection.[8] [9]

Forksolin

20 mg

How It Works

CILTEP® is a natural supplement that helps the user achieve a high state of focus and concentration and enhanced memory formation. CILTEP® is designed to induce long-term potentiation (LTP) in the brain, which is a crucial mechanism involved in the formation of new memories and the strengthening of neural synapses in the brain.

Chemically-induced long-term potentiation (CILTEP®) refers to the activation of LTP through the use of ingredients like artichoke extract, forskolin, select vitamins and amino acids that work synergistically to increase levels of cAMP, a messaging system that relays signals in the brain. Elevated cAMP levels in the brain are known to induce LTP and are associated with improved memory, concentration, and memory formation.

PDE4 INHIBITION

PDE4 is an enzyme that breaks down cAMP molecules, messenger systems that relay signals in the brain. Inhibition of PDE4 blocks the breakdown of cAMP, and thereby increases levels of cAMP within brain cells.

This has been shown to lead to increased cognition, improved long term memory, increased wakefulness, and neuroprotection. [3,4,5,6,7,8]

There have been several natural PDE4 inhibitors identified in herbal preparations including luteolin, which is present in artichoke extract. It also inhibits PDE 1 through 5 which have both shown beneficial activity with regards to synaptic plasticity. [1,2]

Artichoke Extract is a safe, effective and natural PDE4 Inhibitor. [1,2] CILTEP contains 900 mg of the highest quality Artichoke Extract in each serving.

ADDITIONAL BOOST

For an additional boost in feelings of drive and focus, moderate doses of coffee or tea stack very well with CILTEP. Certain types of tea and coffee may work but SMART CAFFEINE is ideal for achieving optimal alertness without the jittery feeling from regular caffeine sources. [19] Be extremely cautious with stimulants because CILTEP may magnify their effects.

INCREASING cAMP

The herb Forskolin (active compound extracted from the root of the Coleus Forskohlii plant) has been shown to naturally increase cAMP levels. It activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase which then increases intracellular levels of cAMP. [10]

CILTEP features premium Coleus Forskohlii standardized for 20% Forskolin. There are 4 mg of Forskolin in each serving of CILTEP.

CILTEP is the first ever product to combine these two, has been awarded a US patent, and is currently involved in multiple placebo-controlled, double-blind University studies.

Increasing cAMP and inhibiting its degradation supports Long-Term Potentiation (LTP).

Summary: PDE4 Inhibition + Increasing cAMP → LTP → Supports optimal mental performance
