Maximize your brain’s potential, good news for old and young!
As Irish students have just finished the mock exams and start the final push in preparation for the real thing it’s timely that Irish Company Galway Natural Health, the makers of Revive Active and Revive Active Joint, has just introduced its newest offering to the Irish Market. The new formula is aimed at providing key nutrients for mental performance and is called Mastermind. It’s aimed at both an older demographic keen to use natural supplements to keep the mind sharp and students seeking the same benefits for optimal study and exam performance.
Here are the supplement’s ingredients and their roles:
Seniors – If preventative 1 sachet daily. If are starting to suffer from memory and cognitive deterioration, than can take 2 sachets daily (separately for the best effect).
Parents & Professionals – 1 sachet daily.
Students – 15 and up 1 sachet daily. Under 15 ½ sachet daily. Probably not necessary or needed for under 13.
Synapses – When you hear synapses, just think Brain Connections and Memories.
DHA, Uridine and Choline work in synergy to promote:
In General: Brain Function, Nervous System Function, Mental Performance, Cognitive Function

DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the Brain and Retina (in the eye).
DHA makes up 50% of Neurons (Brain cells)
DHA is 40% of the fatty acids of the Brain
DHA is 60% of the fatty acids of the Retina
Special in that it is suitable for Vegetarians
Sourced from Algae
Component of RNA, or communication within the brain
When administered with DHA, Uridine works in synergy to promote synapse building
Uridine has been clinically shown to improve cognitive function and mood
Sourced from Fermentation
Essential to make the primary chemical signal used by the brain
Choline has been clinically shown to improve focus and mental performance
Sourced from Soya Oil
Blood-thinners (anticoagulants and antiplatelets) including Warfrin. However, the blood thinning effects of fish oils are attributed to the actions of EPA and not significantly DHA. So this may be an absolute non issue for some people depending on the severity.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) – Promotes wound healing and growth and development of essential neurological (brain and nervous system) cells
Vitamin E (D Alpha Tocopheral) -An important antioxidant and promotes clarity and focus for mental performance
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) – Contributes to mental performance by helping to supply energy and oxygen to the brain
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCL) – Promotes energy metabolism within neurological cells and aids in the production of neurotransmitters (brain signals)
Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) – Promotes energy generation and growth and development of essential neurological cells
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) – Helps to reduce brain fog and improve mental focus and cognition
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) – Contributes to nervous system function by promoting healthy development of neurological cells
Zinc (Zinc Gluconate) – Contributes to cognitive function and the healthy function of neurons within the hippocampus (important region of the brain)
