It is the only thing I have ever taken where I felt like my cognitive ability is drastically improved. It has sharpened my ability to everything from recalling information from memory, removing brain fog and to articulating my words speaking to an Audience. Absolutely one of a kind product and supplement.

Former Director of Strength at Northwestern State University and Former Ast. Strength Coach at Texas Tech University
It’s been working really well with me and has been a blessing given my current workload and the need for a clearer/ sharper mind. Definitely noticed a difference when I forget to take it in the morning and end up taking it later in the day.

Synapsin LPT has changed my life. As a high school football player with a history of concussions, I have some recall problems during high stress times at work, but since I’ve started supplementing metabolic elite’s Synapsin LPT, I’m remembering things with less effort and more accuracy.

Mike Potenza

Director of High Performance, San Jose Sharks

Mike enters his first year as the Director of High Performance for the San Jose Sharks after being with the Golden State Warriors the past two seasons serving as the Director of Performance.  He was in charge of the planning and physical training of the players, provided support to GSW’s performance nutritionist, coordinated and administered the yearly performance testing schedule, created return from injury programs for the athletes, and worked closely with the coaches and development staff on daily scheduling. 

Before going to the Warriors, Mike spent 16 years in the NHL with the San Jose Sharks.  His prime responsibilities as Director of Strength & Conditioning were in the areas of performance enhancement, reconditioning the athletes after injury, nutrition, performance assessment, NHL combine evaluations, player physical development planning and Training Camp testing.  He managed a staff of three strength coaches at the NHL and minor league levels.  

Mike served as Vice President of the NHL Strength Coaches Association from 2015 to 2019 and the President of the Association from 2019 to 2022.  He was the main point of contact between the league and its Performance Coaches on all issues relating to training, performance testing, COVID protocols, the Combine format, and equipment standardizations for visiting teams. 

During Mike’s time in San Jose, he worked closely with two United States Air Force Pararescue teams within the National Guard Bureau on implementing a Performance Enhancement Program for its operators.  The programs were initiated for the 131st Rescue Squadron (California) in 2009 and for the 212th Rescue Squadron (Alaska) in 2012.  The Performance Enhancement Program model has now become a standardized program among all 5 National Guard Bureau Pararescue teams. 

Prior to coming to the Bay area, Mike served as the Strength and Conditioning coach for the Men’s and Women’s hockey teams at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) from 2003 to 2006.  In 2006, both teams won the Division 1 National Championships.
