Though there are many natural nutrients that support brain function, certain of these stand out as being especially beneficial. With the current use of "smart drugs," most of which are relatively untested, naturally occurring nutrients are becoming increasingly desirable because they are effective, safe, and much less costly.


SuperNutrition's Think Clearly is an extremely comprehensive nutritional formula combining key brain nutrients, amino acids, nutritional herbs and greenfoods.
  • Ginkgo Biloba (with over 200 European studies showing its benefits and antioxidant-like activity), Gotu Kola and Basil, the "happy" herb.

  • DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) is a natural compound that helps to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain better than choline itself and in moderate amounts (i.e.100 mg/day), it can be quite effective in delivering nutritional support for healthy and efficient brain function. In one study, subjects reported that they noticed a difference in their feeling of alertness and clarity with dosages of DMAE as low as 30 mg. per day.

  • Phosphatidyl Choline, our preferred form of supplemental choline for brain nutrition. Choline is the nutrient precursor that feeds the efficient production of the critically important brain neuro-transmitter, acetylcholine, as well as being an important component in nerve sheath coatings.

  • Amino-acids. Specific amino acids are necessary for healthy and efficient brain function. These amino acids act as foods (precursors) that become neurotransmitters (messengers) in the brain. We include the important "neuro-aminos", glutamine, phenylalanine, and tyrosine.

  • Peaceful herb, Chamomile, is included to balance the other brain foods.

  • Phyto-chemical-rich greenfoods including Alfalfa, Spirulina, Chlorella and Kelp give the tablet its food-like cellulose-rich make-up for super-easy digestion and extra-efficient absorption.
Niacin--The Forgotten Brain Nutrient

When most people are asked what's the best nutrient for memory, few give the correct answer. Is it Ginkgo? DMAE? Choline? They've all been shown to be effective and are very important to brain function. That's why we include them in Think Clearly. But surprisingly, the most effective, least promoted and least expensive basic brain nutrient is niacin. Niacin is the more active form of Vitamin B3, as differentiated from the less active form, niacinamide. While niacin's best-known effect is lowering serum cholesterol, for which it's prescribed over one million times a year at therapeutic levels, its effect on the brain at nutritional levels is even more important for many people who suffer from poor memory.

One Of Niacin's Many Roles (In Memory)
Niacin is one of the nutrient molecules that is necessary for the proper function of the enzyme called mono-amine oxidase (MAO). MAO, among its many duties, detoxifies or "cleans" the brain of the "brain toxic" by-products of the metabolism of the essential amino acid, tryptophan. These by-products are chemical cousins of hallucinogens like LSD, which are known to interfere with some of the brain's normal healthy functions, including affects, mood and memory.

Gilka L, The Biochemistry of The Schizophrenias,
Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry. 1978; 7(1):6-16

Studies show that niacin deficiencies may be the underlying cause of several imbalances in brain chemistry that impair normal and optimal performance of the brain. That's why niacin may also benefit those who suffer from senility and depression.

Think Clearly contains nutrients to support healthy brain function including 100 milligrams of niacin.

Niacin's Effect On Memory

"Netherlands Study Finds"
Memory Improvement Of 10% To 40%

A double blind study done was done in 1985 to see if 425 mg daily could affect memory. It showed that 425 mg daily (in three divided doses of 141.7 mg) could increase memory test scores from 10% to 40%.
Loriaux SM, Deijen JB, Oriebeke JF, De Swart JH. The effects of nicotinic acid and xanthinol nicotinate on human memory in different categories of age. A double blind study. Psychopharmacology (Berl) 1985;87 (4):390-5
ABSTRACT: The treatment effect of nicotinic acid and xanthinol nicotinate on human memory was compared with placebo in 96 healthy subjects. Forty-three subjects were young (35-45 years), 30 subjects were middle aged (55-65 years) and 23 subjects were old aged (75-85 years). Pre- and post- treatment scores were measured on a battery of memory tasks, covering sensory register, short-term memory and long-term memory. The treatment regime was 1 dragee t.i.d for 8 weeks. The administration of xanthinol nicotinate (500 mg, containing 141.7 mg nicotinic acid), nicotinic acid (141.7 mg) and placebo (lactose) was double blind. Pre- and post-treatment scores were analyzed by means of multivariate covariance technique, the pre-treatment score serving as covariate. Nicotinic acid treatment resulted in improvement of sensory register and short-term memory. In comparison with placebo, both active compounds yielded improvements of 10-40%, depending on the task. Treatment effects of nicotinic acid were predominantly found in the young and middle-aged, whereas treatment effects of xanthinol nicotinate were predominantly found in the old. These results are interpreted by the supposed activity of nicotinic acid at the cell membrane. improving neuronal transmission, and of xanthinol nicotinate inside the cell, enhancing cell metabolism and oxygen supply in the brain.

Comment: While the above study was done with 425 mg of niacin daily, the benefits of niacin supplementation, begin before that measured-level is reached.

This is called "dose-dependent benefits", and indicates that some of the benefits for memory begin somewhere before the 10% to 40% improvement level is reached.

So to deliver an amount of niacin that does have some (as yet, scientifically unmeasured) benefits, we include 100 mg of niacin, and to ensure that it does not result in a niacin skin flush, we use a special "two-stage double-release low-flush" formulation of niacin.
Since 3 Think Clearly tablets deliver 100 mg of niacin, each tablet delivers 33.33 mg of niacin. Our "two-stage double-released low-flush" niacin delivers 16.66 mg of niacin immediately upon tablet disintegration and the other 16.66 mg of niacin approximately one-half hour later. Even if you take all three Think Clearly tablets at once, you only get 50 mg immediately and 50 mg in about one-half hour. With this delivery system, we have never had a report of anyone getting a niacin flush from Think Clearly (although it is possible that someone taking all three daily Think Clearly tablets at one time could get a niacin flush.)
While there are no independent scientific studies evaluating niacin's effect on memory at doses lower than the 425 mg used in the above study, in a 15% Sampling of 1800 SuperNutrition users, 73% reported improvements in mental skills, mental clarity and/or memory within 30 days. 85% were taking 300 mg of niacin from the Opti-Packs and 15% were taking additional niacin.

About The Niacin Flush

Think Clearly uses niacin, the more biologically active form of Vitamin B-3 rather than the less-active form, niacinamide. One of niacin's most beneficial nutritional effects is an enhanced blood supply to the skin (as well as to the internal organs and glands). This is called the "niacin skin flush". The pink-to-red itchy skin flush indicates relaxed middle sized and smaller arteries resulting in increased blood flow without additional work by the heart. This in turn indicates increased delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells as well as increased waste removal from the cells. This is a very desirable nutritional effect, but it can be disconcerting.

It is usually characterized by a warm-to-hot transient reddening of the skin that generally lasts about 30 minutes, but may last up to two hours or more (rare). The flush may bring some itching and may be followed by a slight passing chill as the enhanced blood supply to the skin returns to normal. Quite often, after a few days of regular supplementation, the flush may diminish. Some people however, continue to flush regularly.

Avoiding The Niacin Flush

The most effective way to avoid a niacin skin flush when taking Think Clearly is to take one Think Clearly tablet after breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Occasional Side Effects Of Higher Niacin Intakes

A very few people may also experience a mild, transient headache or a slight upset stomach for a few minutes on beginning niacin supplementation. These effects usually no longer occur after a day or two.

Also, about one person in a thousand may experience a mild rash (which may last from an hour even up to a month) or feel sluggish rather than invigorated when taking Vitamin B3 as niacin. The sluggishness lasts about four hours. These people should take a supplement that contains niacinamide rather that niacin.

We Recommend Careful Use Of Niacin For Those Seeking
More Mental Clarity And Better Memory

Obviously, we recommend Think Clearly for people who seriously want to help their memory, but we also want them to:
  1. Recognize the possibility of a niacin skin flush.
  2. Know that it has no detrimental effect on healthy body chemistry.
  3. Then decide whether to try niacin or not.
We Feel Fast-Release Niacin Is Best

We caution niacin users that slow-release and time-released niacin may overwork liver enzyme systems, and therefore we recommend and use fast-release niacin.

Our Guarantee Of Memory Improvement Or Your Money Back

We can't guarantee that every one will feel improvements in memory, but we're so sure you will that we offer you our 25-year-old ironclad guarantee:
If within 30 days, you haven't experienced personal improvements in your memory and/or mental clarity, we'll gladly refund your money at the point of purchase.
With an answer so simple as taking some daily niacin as in Think Clearly, it's a wonder everyone isn't using this potent nutritional problem solver.
