Klean Focus (formerly Cognitive) -
Klean Cognitive™ by Klean Athlete™ is a unique combination of ingredients to help support brain health and
mental clarity, focus, and acuity for optimal athletic performance.
Klean Cognitive contains the patented combination of acetyl-L-carnitine, lipoic acid and biotin that has been
the focus of research by Dr. Bruce Ames and an award-winning team of scientists at the University of
California, Berkley. This patented, scientifically researched combination** supports healthy gene expression
and mitochondrial function in the brain.†
Klean Cognitive also contains lutein, alpha-GPC, and a phytonutrient fruit blend. While lutein has traditionally
been associated with eye health, emerging research is demonstrating that lutein may play an important role in
maintaining proper brain health. Alpha-GPC converts to acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter that
plays a role in cognition. A powerful blend of fruits is added to this formula for powerful antioxidant capacity to
help fight free radical stress and support normal brain function.
The combination** of acetyl-l-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid and biotin has been clinically studied to support the
mitochondrial function. † This composition also activates the transport of nutrients into the mitochondria, where
they are transformed into a specific chemical form of energy (ATP). The captured energy is used to run the
cellular machinery for such activities as brain function and neurotransmission.
Acetyl-L-carnitine contributes its acetyl group to the production of acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter
for memory and thought. Research has also found that acetyl-L-carnitine is active in optimizing the functioning
of cerebral blood flow, as well as of nerve cell membranes.† Alpha-GPC, also called alphaglycerophosphocholine,
is thought to support memory and cognitive function because it increases plasma
levels of choline, and therefore also increases production of acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine. Alpha-
GPC is a precursor to membrane phospholipids. Therefore, alpha-GPC may help neuronal functioning by
improving neuronal membrane fluidity†. Lutein is a common carotenoid found in spinach and green leafy
vegetables that transports across the blood-brain barrier and accumulates in the macula and neural tissues. A
clinical trial with 12 mg of lutein supplementation resulted in improved cognitive test results in elderly women.
Berries are high in antioxidants and it is well documented that blueberries and fruit flavanoids play a significant
role in memory support and a healthy aging brain.†
Klean Cognitive is tested and certified by the NSF Certified for Sport® Program, which was created to meet the
growing demands of athletes, coaches and healthcare professionals to certify that sports supplements are safe
and completely free from banned substances. Every product that carries the NSF® mark has undergone
stringent laboratory testing to confirm content, purity and compliance.
