Nawgan is your choice for alertness and an elevated state of concentration. Nawgan has a caffeine boost equal to a cup of coffee and Cognizin® citicoline to boost alertness. Non-carbonated refreshment with only 45 calories. Get in your zone!
Cognizin® citicoline is a interesting compound with more than 500
research articles published on the benefits and safety of citicoline.
Cognizin® is the branded name of citicoline. Only one company, Kyowa
Hakko, has the patent to produce Cognizin® citicoline. Cognizin®
citicoline contains a unique combination of choline and cytidine.
Choline is available in many foods that we eat (e.g., potatoes and
cauliflower) but cytidine, which is critical for brain function, is not
widely available in foods consumed in Western diets. Cytidine is
converted into uridine and when combined with choline the two create
CDP-choline. CDP-choline is important for normal brain function.
CDP-choline is ultimately converted into acetylcholine and phospholipids
and both of these substances are necessary for thinking and healthy
Published research studies reveal that individuals who consume citicoline daily experience better performance on tests of attention than individuals that do not consume citicoline (McGlade et al, 2011). Each can of Nawgan contains 95.5mg of choline which is 17% of the Daily Value (550mg).
D-alpha tocopherol acetate (natural vitamin E)Vitamin E is very interesting. Experts agree that both synthetic and natural forms of most vitamins are generally equal in terms of their physical structures and biological activities in the human body but this is not true for vitamin E. Natural vitamin E is obtained from vegetable oils (e.g., soybean, cornflower, etc). Regardless of the source, natural vitamin E is a single chemical entity (referred to as a stereoisomer). By contrast, synthetic vitamin E is created by combining trimethylhydroquinone with isophytol and the result is a combination of 8 different chemical structures but only one of them is similar to natural vitamin E. Overall, synthetic vitamin E shares about 12% similarity to natural vitamin E in terms of physical structure and the lack of similarities results in profound differences in absorption and biological activities. In fact, just in terms of bioavailability, natural vitamin E is more than 2 times more available than synthetic vitamin E. Further, synthetic vitamin E is preferentially metabolized and excreted in the urine rather than absorbed and used by the body.
Nawgan contains 50% of the recommended daily allowances of vitamin E, but remember that natural vitamin E is more active and available than the synthetic version.
Alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl cholineA-GPC provides a secondary source of choline (along with citicoline). Together, the choline available from the A-GPC and the citicoline provides a 95.5mg of choline, 17% RDA (550mg).
CaffeineWhen most people think of caffeine they probably think of coffee and the “energy” that caffeine provides. This energy that comes from caffeine is really an increase in mental alertness that takes place in the brain. Caffeine works by activating a system in the brain called the adenosine system, which is located in the front part of the brain (basal forebrain). The adenosine system becomes more active over the course of a day so that by the end of the day when the adenosine system is really active the brain begins to prepare for sleep. The result is that when we consume caffeine, our brain becomes more “active”. This is what explains the increase in attention, memory, and alertness that we all experience when we consume caffeine. The caffeinated version of Nawgan contains 100mg of caffeine which is right in between a cup of brewed tea and a cup of coffee.
My Take on Nawgan is that it really helps me. I have a infant and two other children that allow me to get 2-4hrs a sleep a day. Normally I'm extremly groggy. I just can't seem to get a handle on anything but then I drink a Nawgan and am ready to take on everything! Which honestly is normally more difficult then it seems! It has a pleasent tast like juice and gives you a high that leaves no hangover afterwards.
