|The final decade of the 20th century witnessed an explosion of research in the neurosciences. We now have evidence suggesting that the special nutrients and unique plant extracts included in Brain Formula help neurons (brain cells) maintain healthy cellular energy production by promoting healthy mitochondrial function, scavenging free radicals, and promoting healthy blood circulation. Antioxidants, specific neurotransmitter nutrients, and synergistic herbal concentrates included in Brain Formula support healthy brain cell communication through the neurotransmitter pathways, and promote healthy blood circulation, especially throughout the vast network of tiny blood vessels of the brain, enabling you to stay focused, alert, and functioning at peak mental capacity. Activity of the neurotransmitters nutritionally supported by Brain Formula is associated with healthy mood, memory, mental acuity, and alertness, without need for stimulants such as caffeine. Can you think of a better way to energize your mind than with Brain Formula?|
Recent research has suggested that dietary and environmental factors play an important role in supporting and maintaining healthy brain function throughout life. Aging and mild memory loss associated with aging have become a major concern for many people in our society. Some people become more absent minded due to the natural aging process, as they grow older, whereas other people reach very advanced ages with excellent mental function. Although the reasons for this difference may be partially genetic, accumulating evidence suggests that nutrition, environmental factors, and lifestyle are also involved.
In order to maintain and promote healthy brain function, one should avoid or minimize the number of lifestyle choices that increase the amount of free radicals in the blood, body, and brain. Some of these lifestyle choices include: smoking, excessive alcohol and/or drug use (prescription and non-prescription), and emotional/mental stress.
Also, one should avoid food and drink, whenever possible, that contain glutamate (MSG) and aspartame (artificial sweetener) which are amino acid compounds that are added as flavor enhancers.
Since these flavor enhancers are so widely used in our food supply (MSG now goes on food labels under many names such as “hydrolyzed vegetable protein” and “autolyzed yeast extract”), avoiding them altogether is difficult, if not impossible. These two amino acids, when used in large quantities as flavor enhancers in manufactured foods and beverages, can over stimulate certain brain cells beyond their ability to sustain and maintain their supply of cellular energy.
As we grow older, the ability of our brain cells to generate energy diminishes significantly. In addition, the amount of glutathione and cellular antioxidant enzymes in these brain cells also decreases, thus allowing for a larger accumulation of free radicals. In humans, the larger accumulation of free radicals permits lipid peroxidation, which can result in an increase of the pigment called lipofuscin in the brain. This is the same pigment that causes “liver” or “age” spots in the skin that are often associated with aging.
Many neuroscientists now believe that lipofuscin accumulation contributes to loss of healthy mental function and absentmindedness that is often experienced with aging. Studies indicate that by maintaining diets high in antioxidants, experimental animals develop fewer lipofuscin pigments in their brains with aging. Mental acuity is crucial in sustaining our overall quality of life. Harsh environmental factors, certain lifestyle choices as well as dietary choices, all make it more imperative that we provide our brains with adequate nutritional support.
The core of Brain Formula is threefold: antioxidants (tocopherols, vitamin K, B-vitamins, selenium, N-acetyl cysteine, alpha lipoic acid, bioflavonoids), specific brain-supporting nutrients (L-carnitine, N-acetyl-carnitine, dimethylaminoethanol, phosphatidyl serine, L-taurine), and herbal concentrates (Ginkgo biloba, Gotu kola, Huperzia serrata, Siberian ginseng).
Neuroscience research indicates that the aforementioned nutrients and plant-derived compounds are capable of helping neurons (brain cells) maintain healthy cellular energy production by promoting healthy mitochondrial function, and promoting healthy blood circulation, especially throughout the vast network of capillaries (the tiny blood vessels of the brain), both of which are crucial to individual brain cell function. Healthy mitochondrial function includes both cellular energy production, and scavenging of free radicals.
In addition, certain amino acids (L-glutamine, L-phenylalanine, L-tyrosine) that serve as fuel for the critical neurotransmitters that transmit messages between brain cells, are also included in Brain Formula. Activity of these neurotransmitters is associated with healthy mood, memory, mental acuity, and alertness, without need for stimulants such as caffeine.
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and high-quality protein and essential fats, pure water, regular exercise, and stress management techniques such as biofeedback, yoga, tai-chi, and meditation, along with these outstanding supplements, can significantly enhance our ability to maintain the priceless resource of an active and agile mind throughout our lifetime.
