CILTEP

Ciltep Review

Ciltep

Ciltep is a patented all-natural nootropic supplement that was designed to be extremely effective at promoting optimal mental performance and focus. The benefits of taking this nootropic range from increases in motivation and mental endurance, improved concentration and alertness, improved mood, reduced anxiety and an increase in motivation.

What does CILTEP stand for?

Chemically Induced Long Term Potential


What is Long Term Potentiation?

Long Term Potentiation (LTP) is a process whereby the synaptic connections are strengthened and enhanced, resulting in improved mental performance. Long term potentiation also plays a crucial role in how the structure of the brain changes through time, which has been called synaptic plasticity.


What are the ingredients in CILTEP?

Take 1-3 capsules in the morning immediately upon waking on an empty stomach, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Do not take more than 3 capsules per day.

Deeper look at CILTEP Ingredients

Forskolin

Forskolin is one of the main roots that has been included to increase levels of cAMP in neurons. cAMP is produced from ATP and forskolin activates the enzyme, adenylin cyclase, which is responsible for increased production of ATP.

When this supplemenmt has been combined with the artichoke extract users tend to report effects of have enhanced memory and learning.

Premium artichoke extract

Premium artichoke extract has long been used for its natural health benefits. As for its nootropic potential, this compound contains a powerful phytochemical called luteolin.
Luteolin is a PDE-4 inhibitor, meaning it prevents the enzyme which is responsible for breaking down cAMP (cyclic adenoside monophosphate) from doing such. This is important because cAMP allows neurotransmitters and hormones essential to memory formation to function properly. In short, this ingredient protects our brains ability to induce long term potentiation (LTP) by preventing the breakdown of proteins necessary for making long term memories.

L-Phenylalanine

L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid which the body is unable to produce naturally. Sources typically range from meats and milk products, oats, and wheat germ. L-phenylalanie contributes to the production of melanin, dopamine, noradrenalin (norepinephrine), and thyroxine in the brain. Thyroxine is one of the main hormone that assists digestion, heart and muscle function, brain development and maintenance of bones. In this particular stack l-phenylalanine is meant to boost motivation and mental concentration.


What are the benefits of CILTEP ingredients?

Improved Memory and Alertness
One of the overwhelming reason nootropic fans choose CILTEP is due to its ability to improve memory. It achieves this through long term potentiation which is the brains synapse activity increasing long lasting singal transmissions. This formula was also designed to preserve neuroplasticity of the brain, essentiually fighting the effects of aging.

Increased Focus and Concentration
Nootropic users who like to stack nootropics often use CILTEP since it has been shown to combine well with other natural stimulants. This is called stacking. CILTEP is commonly stacked with caffeine, giving the stack an additional boost, providing even better alertness. As with any nootropics and all supplements do your research and know they should be used cautiously.
