As we age, we all struggle to remember names, dates, and where we put the car keys. This happens for several reasons:
1) Fewer neurotransmitters
2) Fewer neurotransmitter receptors
3) Dry, brittle brain cell membranes
4) Reduced energy in brain cells
a. poor utilization of oxygen
b. poor glucose metabolism
c. poor mitochondrial function
5) Brain cell damage by accumulation of stress
6) Oxidative damage to brain cells
7) Restricted blood flow to the brain
There is no way to prevent these things from happening. The best we can do is minimize their damage and keep levels of vital factors as high as possible. Fortunately, nature provides some wondrous tools for this purpose.
Phosphatidylserine is an essential fatty acid that impacts problem-solving and memory in at least three major ways. It increases levels of acetylcholine, increases neurotransmitter receptors by restoring flexibility and hydration to brain cell membranes, and promotes glucose metabolism to enhance ATP production in brain cells.*
BioVinca™ (Vinpocetine) is derived from the periwinkle plant. Studies show that it increases blood flow to the brain, increases the production of ATP in brain cells, enhances oxygen uptake in brain cells, and increases levels of acetylcholine, dopamine, noradrenaline, and serotonin. It also stimulates LC (locus coeruleus) neurons, which play important roles in problem-solving and memory.*
BrainEssence™ provides 800 mg of Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR). As PS promotes glucose metabolism,ALCAR enhances the electron transport and mitochondrial aspects of energy (ATP) production. ALCAR also supports neurons in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, which encourage memory and learning processes, and helps PS maintain cell membrane integrity.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
ALA is Acetyl-L-Carnitine’s natural partner in encouraging the mitochondria of cells to produce energy. It is also a valuable antioxidant, makes vitamins C and E more protective by recharging them, and increases levels of the body’s master antioxidant, L-Glutathione.*
Cognisetin™ helps protect brain cells from free radical oxidation, and may reduce specific overactive immune activities that undermine brain function. It also enhances levels of L-Glutathione for further support against oxidative stress.*
Mucuna pruriens provides rich levels of L-Dopa, from which the body makes dopamine. Dopamine is a major neurotransmitter that, while best known for improving mood and feelings of well-being, is also involved in problem-solving and memory.*
Bacopa, Ashwagandha and Rhodiola have been used to support brain function and mood and combat stress and mental fatigue for centuries. Countless studies have shown their benefit in improving mental acuity and focus, combating stress, and supporting the deep-rooted energies of the Kidney System (which controls brain function according to Traditional Chinese Medicine). By combating stress, these botanicals also promote serotonin production.*
Together, these factors produce an unmatched holistic synergy that makes BrainEssence™ the finest brain supplement ever offered. In just days, or at the most, a month, you’ll enjoy better problem.
