From the manufacturer
Ultra Social is Unique
Formulated by Neuroscientists
Ultra Social is formulated by a neuropharmacologist/pharmacist and a neurologist – both with decades of experience – who see the difference these ingredients make in the lives of many families. Formulas similar to Ultra Social were previously being compounded in a pharmacy, by prescription, for years before being made available to everyone now as Ultra Social.
Our product is a unique combination of the most researched nutrients that have been shown to play significant roles in brain function, all in one serving size.*
We have used premium quality ingredients in our product. Not all forms of vitamins and minerals are absorbed in the body equally, nor are all forms equally active in the body. And some people don’t have the mechanisms needed to activate B vitamins. Our B vitamins are already in their activated forms, and our minerals are in their more absorbable, glycinated forms. Our product does not include sweeteners, flavors or dyes and is third-party lab tested for purity.
Doses Low Enough for Kids
Some people, especially kids, don’t get adequate amounts of the nutrients needed for optimal brain functioning from diet. Ultra Social contains several of the most extensively-researched nutrients in a dosage range that is appropriate for kids and adults. And for those who can’t swallow a capsule, the capsules can easily be opened and the contents added to a yummy snack, under parental supervision.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) and alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha-GPC)
Phospholipids are vital foundational molecules for all cell membranes. PS is mostly found in the brain and is significantly involved in the production of neurotransmitters, their release, and their post synaptic functioning. Alpha-GPC is a precursor for acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine synthesis. Phosphatidylcholine is needed by all cells to preserve their structural integrity, and supports healthy brain function. Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter for memory, mood, muscle control, learning and concentration/focus.*
Vitamin B6, Folate ( Vitamin B9), and Vitamin B12
Ultra Social contains the activated forms of these vitamins because some people don’t have the enzymes which activate B vitamins into forms the body can use. These B vitamins affect brain function acutely by increasing the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, GABA etc, all of which are crucial to neurological and psychological status. They also have a long term effect by converting a substance called homocysteine, into an amino acid called methionine, which is important for neurotransmitter synthesis. Decreasing homocysteine levels helps preserve the integrity of the brain by preventing vascular disease, also crucial to cognitive function.*
Magnesium and Zinc
The absorption of these minerals varies greatly, depending on its salt forms. Forms that are well absorbed have improved bioavailability for its effects on the brain. Ultra Social contains Magnesium glycinate and Zinc glycinate because of their improved bioavailability. Better absorption means less of the mineral in the intestines, so less unwanted gut effects. Both are cofactors of hundreds of enzyme systems that regulate diverse biological reactions in the body. Magnesium plays a significant role in muscle and nerve function and has been shown to improve hyperactivity, aggressiveness, and concentration. Zinc is involved in neurotransmitter metabolism and affects the formation of neural pathways. A zinc deficiency can have a significant effect on attention, motor activity, cognition and behavior. Zinc is also a cofactor in the synthesis of melatonin, so along with the B vitamins in Ultra Social, can also promote better sleep.*
GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It is critical to the functioning of the CNS. Because GABA is the fundamental neurotransmitter for inhibiting neuronal firing, its functions are determined by the neural circuits it is inhibiting. GABA is involved in many complex circuits throughout the central nervous system, and basically, it inhibits unwanted signals. GABA has been implicated in a large range of behaviors including anxiety and stress regulation, sleep regulation, memory enhancement, mood, and perception of pain. Many prescription medications affect GABA functioning, for example, muscle relaxers like Valium, sleep inducers like Ambien, pain modulators like Gabapentin, and anesthetics, to name a few.
5 HTP is produced in the brain from tryptophan, and is converted to serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in the modulation of mood, cognition, reward, learning, memory, sleep and physiological processes. Serotonin is transformed to melatonin, the hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Many antidepressants improve mood by increasing serotonin levels in nerve synapses, typically by inhibiting its reuptake back into the nerve. An effective way to increase serotonin levels is by taking 5 HTP in supplement form since 5 HTP readily crosses the blood-brain-barrier, whereas serotonin does not.
Since the discovery of vitamin D receptors in almost every cell throughout the body, vitamin D3 is no longer thought of as being only vital for calcium and bone homeostasis. It is now known to play a major role in both innate and adaptive immune responses, brain functioning, for example cognition, autism and depression, cardiovascular functioning, lung health, skeletal muscle functioning, psoriasis, and certain cancers.
Who can benefit from Ultra Social?
Ultra Social can be highly beneficial for people of all ages. The combination of its ingredients supports optimal brain health every day, especially for those needing support for focus, learning, memory, excessive activity, anxiety, and negative mood states. Many of us may not be getting adequate amounts of these nutrients in our diet on a daily basis. Phosphatidylserine is mainly found in meat and fish, alpha-glycerophosphorylcholine in eggs, sunflowers, and soybeans. Vitamin B6 is mainly found in meat, fish, poultry, and fruit (not citrus). Folate is mainly found in asparagus, brussel sprouts, spinach, nuts, beans and fruits. Vitamin B12 is mostly found in beef liver and clams. Other sources include fish and meat. Magnesium is found in nuts, seeds, legumes and green leafy vegetables, and the best source of zinc is oysters. Other sources of zinc include lobster, crab, red meat and poultry. GABA is found in some germinated cereals, some beans, and fermented foods like kimchi. 5 HTP is not found in foods but is sourced from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant found in west and central Africa. Dietary sources for vitamin D3 are minimal. It is found in eggs and fatty fish like salmon and cod liver oil, and fortified milk. Even though vitamin D3 is synthesised in the skin upon exposure to the sun, vitamin D deficiency is on the rise with more people spending time indoors. Also, as we age, our skin’s ability to synthesise vitamin D3 from the sun decreases, and people with darker skin are less efficient at synthesising vitamin D3 because the skin pigment, melanin, competes with vitamin D3 precursors in the skin for UV ray absorption. Not all of us eat a combination of the foods containing the nutrients in Ultra Social everyday, especially children. And if we do, not all of us have the necessary enzymes to methylate B vitamins into forms the body can use. That is why Ultra Social provides a highly beneficial and convenient way to support optimal brain functioning for many of us.
