Our OV Study Boost tablets contain a formula of five ingredients which have been specifically selected to boost concentration, memory and cognitive function. These ingredients include Iron, Zinc, Ginkgo Biloba, Green Tea extract and Ginseng.
Iron is an essential nutrient that is available in two forms: haem and non-haem. Haem sources are easier to absorb from the body and are commonly found in foods of animal origin including red meat, eggs and fish. Non-haem sources include tofu, nuts and seeds, and should be consumed with Vitamin C to aid the absorption. Iron contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells which transport oxygen around the body. This contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, aiding energy metabolism.
Like Iron, Zinc is an essential nutrient. The element was first used in the manufacture of brass many centuries ago. We retain around 2.5g of Zinc in our bodies which is acquired through dietary sources such as herring, beef, lamb, sunflower seeds and cheese. Zinc is required for the synthesis of protein, a nutrient that is required for the production of enzymes which play a role in normal cognition.
Ginkgo Biloba is sourced from one of the oldest living plants on Earth. The word 'Ginkgo' originates from the Chinese term ginkyo which means 'silver apricot'. Ginkgo Biloba contains Ginkgolides and Bilobalides, two active ingredients that are thought to increase blood circulation within the brain. This contributes to cognitive function and brain performance.
Green Tea extract
Our Green Tea is extracted from the Camellia sinensis plant which has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for millennia. Green Tea has recently gained the status of 'superfood' due to its vast nutritional benefits, including its contribution to the reduction of fatigue and tiredness. Green Tea also works to improve cognitive function and attention focus.
Our tablets use Ginseng, a root of the Panax ginseng plant which originates from Northern China. Ginseng is traditionally used in Chinese medicine and referred to as the 'root of heaven' as it was historically used as a 'cure-all'. The root has a multitude of health benefits, including contributing to concentration levels. The root contains ginsenosides which produce a calming effect in pressurised situations to reduce stress.
