We are pleased to welcome you to the Halcyon community. Halcyon Biotechnologies is a consumer life sciences company focused on cognitive performance. We operate at the intersection of biology, psychology, and technology. Halcyon's mission is to leverage science to enhance the quality of peoples lives through cognitive health.
Halcyon works directly with top scientists, psychologists and health professionals around the world to translate scientific and technological advances into innovative products that work.
Our product development pipeline begins with research and development, continues with empirically proven compounds and technologies, and culminates in safe and effective products and services for supporting human cognition. Throughout this process, Halcyon’s focus is to develop products that allow people to support their cognitive health proactively.
Halcyon is guided by a Scientific Advisory Board, which includes researchers and doctors who are experts in psychology, psychiatry, chemistry, biology, and many other fields of study.
Our first product, called HALCYON, is a proprietary formulation of ingredients designed to produce a focused, motivated mental state while providing safe and effective nutrients clinically proven to support cognition and long-term brain health at the cellular level. Each ingredient is empirically demonstrated to support key aspects of human cognition, including memory, focus, and motivation using natural compounds.
Halcyon's compounds are selected, first and foremost, to support brain health. Upon this foundation, we built a formulation designed to do 3 things:
1) Support long-term brain health †
2) Immediately improve ratings of peak cognitive performance †
3) Support daily cognitive performance over time †
Halcyon uses only ingredients which have been scientifically demonstrated as effective and safe, as backed by human clinical data. All Halcyon products are manufactured in the USA in a FDA registered facility using cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and pass rigorous testing. Halcyon is designed to be taken daily to support memory, focus, and mood, as well as long-term brain health.†
Below is a very brief summary of some of the research on these compounds.
Theacrine- Shown in a 2016 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to improve energy and concentration while decreasing levels of fatigue, anxiety, and irritability. Theacrine also increases ratings of alertness, attention, and motivation. Unlike caffeine and other stimulants, recent evidence has shown that people who take theacrine do not report a tolerance buildup to its effects.
α-GPC- A natural compound of choline that is present within the brain. It is a potent precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is associated with memory and learning.
Rhodiola Rosea- Shown in several studies to reduce ratings of fatigue, anxiety, and stress. This ancient adaptogen has long been used for its reported effects on mood and endurance.
Anthocyanin- In a 2017 study, healthy people who consumed Anthocyanin every day for 12 weeks showed improvements in cognitive function, blood flow to the brain, and activation of the brain while carrying out cognitive tests.
Huperzine A- In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial students were given either huperzine A or a placebo for 4 weeks. Students using Huperzine A scored higher on memory tests than those who took the placebo. Huperzine A is a reversible acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor, which means it prevents the breakdown of acetylcholine, boosts memory, and supports long-term brain health.
On behalf of our team, it is a pleasure to welcome you to Halcyon. We believe that success has a formula, and we thank you for making Halcyon part of yours.
