Our NeurotropEx is a botanical formula harnessing the powers of coffee berries & Scutellaria baicalensis extracts to support your cognitive health:*

  • It can promote the reparation and regeneration of nerve & brain tissue*
  • It could be beneficial for your cognitive functionality & short term memory*

To our knowledge, not many botanicals have been shown to:

  • Increase neurotrophic factors such as BDNF by 143% [1]
  • Prevent amyloid accumulation – and dissolve – already present amyloid plaque
  • Provide day-to-day fuel for neural mitochondria & boost general cognition

We have therefore chosen two which the scientific community believes are up for the job: Scutellaria baicalensis (commonly known as Skullcap) and extract from coffee berries & and enhanced by MCT from coconut oil.


What Does Our NeurotropEx™ Formula Contain?

Our NeurotropEx formula consists of:

  • Coffee berry extract (standardized to 2% polyphenols) – 400 mg
  • MCT powder (powderized coconut oil) – 200 mg
  • Scutellaria baiclensis (skullcap root extract, standardized to 90% baicalin) – 50mg

It comes in a vegan-friendly cellulose capsule.

Like our other nutraceuticals, our NeurotropEx™ formula is free from allergens such as gluten, soy, fish, lactose, milk, meat and wheat.


What Is the Recommended Daily Dosage?

We recommend 2 capsules, twice a day or as advised by your healthcare professional. It can be consumed with meals.


What Does the Science Say?

Coffee berry fruit

BDNF is one of the most potent neurotrophic factors, keeping brain neurons and its connections (synapses) in the best performing state. Research suggests that coffee berries boost BDNF by up to 143% [1] and that diminishing levels of BDNF may be associated with neurodegeneration and depression.


Scutellaria baicalensis

Skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) is rich in baicalin and baicalein. These flavonoids cross the blood/brain barrier and accumulate in its structures associated with the preservation of memory, learning (like the Hippocampus) and motor function [2,3,13]. Studies suggest that baicalin can protect neurons from negative influence of low oxygen (hypoxia) and other toxins as well as prolong their life in the hippocampal area [2,3,4,5,10].


MCT Oil Powder

Medium Chain Triglycerides from coconut oil provide mitochondrial fuel and have been shown to boost cognition in humans [17,18].
