Cognitive Enhancement

In my house, "feed the beast" and "quiet - the monster is sleeping" have become family jokes. But, as we all know, the best jokes come from actual events. I admit my brain shuts down, and my "be nice" filter turns off, when my tank is low, or when I'm slightly sleep-deprived.

Thrivous Clarity offers support for my hectic life by adding scientifically proven B-vitamins and zinc to nootropic herbal supplements. Clarity’s ingredients support metabolic and cognitive functioning, help reduce fatigue, and enhance mood.

Even better, the ingredients in Clarity are natural nootropic geroprotectors that support healthy cognitive aging. Here's the Thrivous Clarity formula:

  • Bacopa Monnieri Extract (Synapsa® 55% Bacoside) 320 mg
  • L-Theanine 200 mg
  • Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract (2% Salidroside) 170 mg
  • B1 - Thiamin (Thiamine Hydrochloride) 25 mg
  • B2 - Riboflavin (Riboflavin 5 Phosphate) 25 mg
  • B3 - Niacin (Nicotinamide) 100 mg
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate) 25 mg
  • B7 - Biotin (D Biotin) 300 mcg
  • B9 - Folate (L5 Methyltetrahydrofolate) 400 mcg
  • Vitamin B12 (MeCbl and AdoCbl) 240 mcg
  • Zinc (Zinc Picolinate) 11 mg

Thrivous developed Clarity’s formula by combing through years of extensive clinical trials and research. Clarity delivers the best evidence-based nutrients at suitable dosages for desired nootropic results to enhance memory and cognitive function. Here is a run down of the components contained in Thrivous Clarity.

Bacopa Monnieri

As an Ayurveda herb, Bacopa monnieri has been used for centuries in Indian medicine to reduce stress and enhance vitality and cognitive functioning. Advanced medical research shows Bacopa monnieri supports dendritic growth, making it the best nutrient for memory enhancement and healthy cognitive aging.

Memory and mental processing depend on passing signals through neurons. Neurons have branches of dendrites fanning out to receive impulses, pass signals, and transfer information to the cell body. Dendritic destruction is associated with memory loss and cognitive impairment. The formation of plaque in the brain (and the associated dendritic loss) is from neuron death caused by reactions with acetylcholinesterase (AChE).

A 12-week study of healthy adults suggests “B. monnieri can improve attention, cognitive processing, and working memory partly via the suppression of AChE activity.”

The Bacopa monnieri used in Thrivous Clarity is Synapsa® 55% Bacoside, which has been used in 30 years of cognitive clinical studies. Standard Bacopa monnieri dosage used in clinical trials ranges from 300 to 600 mg.


Human life has never been so busy. And the barrage of information has never been so constant as it is now. As a result, stress levels, especially among young adults, are rising.

The plant-based amino acid L-Theanine is naturally found in tea and certain mushrooms. It crosses the blood-brain barrier to calm, relax, and focus the mind. It works by increasing brain activity in the alpha frequency range. When the brain operates in Alpha-band oscillations, focus and processing are improved.

Studies indicate that L-Theanine has a highly consistent and notable ability to relax the mind. A relaxed mind improves mental performance and reaction time, especially for highly anxious people. Clinical doses are in the 200 mg range.

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola Rosea is an herbal adaptogen clinically shown to reduce fatigue. Reduced fatigue means improved cognition. An adaptogen is a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stress. Rhodiola Rosea may help suppress the release of the stress hormone cortisol, though how it works is not completely understood by medical science at this time.

Ultraweak biophoton emissions are the effects of systemic stress. One double-blind clinical trial indicates a significant decrease in stress photon emission and self-evaluated fatigue with one week of Rhodiola Rosea supplementation over placebo.

Rhodiola Rosea (170 mg of 2.6% salidroside extract) may help reduce fatigue for night shift workers. This study documents improved associative thinking, short-term memory, processing, concentration, and audio-visual perception speed of night-shift healthy physicians.

A small study using two doses a day of 200 mg of Rhodiola Rosea indicates improved mental resources and increased cognitive processing speed. Given the size and parameters of the study, researchers feel further studies are warranted.

HIgher dosages are not necessarily better. This study found a 50% higher dose of Rhodiola Rosea above standard provides no additional benefit. The lower dose gave slightly better results in psychometric tests. Fatigue benefits have been noted in daily doses as low as 50 mg. Depending on the salidroside concentration, clinical doses are between 100 and 600 mg.

Vitamin B Complex

B vitamins are an essential part of healthy life. They play intricate roles in metabolism to convert macronutrients (fats, proteins, carbs) into usable energy. Some B Vitamins promote DNA production, cell signaling, and red blood cell production and development.

Replenishing B vitamins is a daily necessity. Unlike fat-soluble essential nutrients (vitamins D and K), the human body cannot store B vitamins. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble. If not used, they are considered excess and excreted in the urine.

Using past study data that gave dietary intake levels of niacin, folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 in childhood and young adulthood, researchers engaged the same participants in a series of cognitive tests. These tests covered auditory, visual, and motor functioning. The study found that “higher intake of B vitamins throughout young adulthood was associated with better cognitive function in middle life.”

The latest National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) conducted in 2003-2006 estimates that 2 to 12 percent of Americans are deficient in one or more B vitamins. Animal products are good sources of many B Vitamins and are the only natural source of riboflavin and vitamin B12. The rising popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets increases the likelihood of vitamin B deficiencies in the current population.

Thrivous Clarity contains all eight B vitamins in their most bioavailable form. In addition, Thriovous includes vitamin B9 as methylfolate, which is the best folate form for people with the MTHFR gene mutation.

With the increasing popularity of vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, optional vitamin B12 sources are a dietary necessity. Sufficient levels of vitamin B12 are required for DNA production and healthy blood and nerve cells. 

Thrivous Clarity provides vitamin B12 from both methylcobalamin (MeCbl) and adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl). Medical research shows MeCbl and AdoCbl complement each other to provide a more effective and complete vitamin B12 supplement.

Zinc Picolinate

As an essential mineral, zinc is a catalyst in over 300 enzyme reactions, including DNA replication and protein generation. In addition, its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties support the immune system in fighting off viral and bacterial infections.

According to this study, zinc supplementation at 30 mg daily may support healthy mood. The more enlightening statistic of this survey is zinc supports serum levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF protects neurons, modulates neurotransmission, aids neuron adaptation, and regulates metabolism and blood glucose. Low blood serum BDNF levels are associated with neuron loss and neurodegeneration.

Zinc may enhance mood. This study finds zinc supplementation (7mg) in conjunction with a multivitamin improves mood as measured by anger-hostility scores.

For maximum zinc adsorption, Thrivous Clarity uses zinc picolinate. It's clinically proven to have the best oral adsorption rate for humans. Recommended doses for daily use range from 5-10 mg.
