We exist to empower the do-ers. The creators. The get-stuff-doners. IQ BARs are meticulously formulated around six nutrients shown to support sustained cognitive energy, performance, and health. They include Lion’s Mane, MCTs, omega-3s, flavonoids, vitamin-E, and choline.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT LION’S MANE (BRAIN NUTRIENT):
Used in Chinese medicine for millennia, the Lion’s Mane mushroom is widely championed for its potential brain benefits. It’s perhaps best known for its demonstrated ability to boost nerve growth factor (NGF) across a host of animal studies. NGF promotes the generation of new neurons, the growth, maintenance, and survival of existing neurons, and the reversal of injury-induced nerve damage. In vitro research has shown Lion’s Mane to also promote neurite outgrowth, a process by which neurons create more expansive cellular connections.
Unsurprisingly, healthier neurons appear to improve brain function! Studies have shown consumption of Lion’s Mane contributing to improvements in visual recognition memory and protection against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Lion’s Mane also appears to have strong anti-oxidant properties. Several studies have shown the mushroom to be highly adept at “scavenging” (i.e., disabling) free radicals and reducing genes’ expression of chemicals that promote inflammation. Lion’s Mane has also been linked with a reduction in fatigue, anxiety, and depression, in part due to its anti-oxidant capabilities
