Health newsletter Pasio

 In this health newsletter we focus on  memory

"Pass me my smart drugs please..."

It must be a familiar experience for almost everyone: needing to write an article or prepare a presentation and not find the proper words. I certainly have experienced it frequently.

Not so long ago I was asked at work (yours truly also has a part time job at a financial institution) to do an impromptu presentation on my ideas about how to improve the quality of work. I was tired already from an entire day of work and lacking inspiration. If I had not taken any of my smart drugs, I probably would have declined altogether.

So yes, this is an endorsement of 'smart drug use' . I endorse it whenever it is appropriate and helps your career or job. In these 'economic interesting times' I doubt anyone can afford weaseling out of their responsibility at work. No matter what your job is.

Should you think use of smart drugs leads to abuse, it is worthwhile noticing how in over 30 years smart drugs users have rarely been law offenders, but instead are productive members of society. Smart drugs are mostly safer than alcoholic beverages, which are both harmful to health and society (just stop & think about all the casualties in traffic).

So what to take and when? Well, that depends on your needs and desires. If I need to be sharp and creative, I will choose vinpocetine. If am worn out and need a fresh start I might opt for a high dose of vitamin B12 and some vitamin B1 that actually crosses the blood-brain barrier like our Sulbutiamine (still not available).

If your memory is lacking, try citicoline and/or Ginkgo. If you need a kickstart of the day, why not just caffeine and (N-acetyl-)Tyrosine or even Acetyl L-Carnitine.

I could mention a few more, but I would say... just try out a few, that appeal most to you . There are several now on special discount, so take advantage of the opportunity!




Pasio Ingredients offers a vast array of different products that can improve memory in the dedicated Brain and memory category.

Citicoline or stabilized CDP Choline (cytidine 5'diphosphocholine) is a naturally occurring, water soluble, biological compound that is an intermediate for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the grey matter of brain tissue (30%). Supports memory recall and learning among a host of other cognitive support.
Although anyone can benefit from CDP, it is primarily a supplement used to improve thinking, learning and memory for older people.

Neuro Optimizer

Neuro Optimizer contains seven nutrients (citicoline, phosphatidylserine, alpha lipoic acid, acetyl L-carnitine, L-glutamine, taurine and phosphatidylcholine) to build and protect nerve membranes, prevent free radical damage, enhance brain metabolism and provide stable energy.


Neuro Optimizer is for mature individuals who are concerned about their mental and emotional health. Given that cognition and memory begin to decline decades before maturity, Neuro Optimizer may also serve younger people, especially those with a family history of cognitive problems.

Vinpocetine, the smart drug for improved memory recall, is a pscyhostimulant and nootropic, derived from tabersonine, an alkaloid extracted from Voacanga seeds. Vinpocetine supports cerebral blood flow and brain metabolism by increasing cerebral synthesis of ATP, the universal "currency" of energy.
Vinpocetine enhances brain metabolism by improving utilization of oxygen. Vinpocetine also increases the synthesis of several neurotransmitters that affect such critical brain functions as memory recall, focus and mood. These brain functions are dependent on enough energy and oxygen.


Ginkgo biloba 50:1

Ginkgo biloba leaf extract is very rich in ginkgoflavonglycosides. Some scientist regard ginkgo as a potential longevity drug - in animal studies it inhibits prolactin and benefits the blood circulation which positively influences memory recall.

Other memory enhancers

This memory special would not be complete without mentioning other products that enhance memory.

1. Methyl B12  can have a spectacular effect on short-term memory especially when there is a deficiency due to lifestyle (vegan diet) or lack of intrinsic factor due to damaged villi (gluten intolerance).

2. Brain Boost combines ingredients like phospatidylserine, ChocoMind and vinpocetine to deliver both short-term and long-term benefits (unfortunately on backorder until May)


3 allomega 3 supplements, since omega-3 fatty acids and especially DHA are essential for a healthy development of the brain.
