Effect of Alpinia galanga on mental alertness and sustained attention with or without caffeine

Human “attention” is not only becoming scarce but is a complex set of functions that have been studied in the past using mostly subjective scales. The challenge was to be able to accurately measure individual components of the attention network using objective assessment tools. The researchers at Vedic chose Jin Fan’s computerized model the Attention Network Test (ANT) after careful evaluation of several tools. In this path-breaking study, ANT was successful in identifying the finer differences between the investigational product EnXtra and the gold standard caffeine. EnXtra was found to improve and sustain mental alertness up to 5hrs with and without caffeine and also impeded the caffeine crash.

Effects of Cymbopogon flexuosus, Alpinia galanga, and Glycyrrhiza glabra on attention

The client wanted to screen several potential candidates for mental alertness and attention. The challenge was to use an objective validated assessment measure for the complex brain function consisting of Alerting, Orienting, Executive Function and Response Time. A validated adaptation of ANT termed as ‘CRSD-ANT’ (Centre for Research on Safe Driving Attention Network Task) was used to evaluate the effect of the plant extracts on different aspects of the attention network reliably. The Alpinia galanga (AG1) extract “EnXtra” group showed a statistically significant and stable increase in alertness scores in healthy volunteers.
