A person's nutrition can substantially affect mood, behavior, and brain function. The human brain is quite demanding when it comes to energy and nutrient consumption, and our nutrient intake influences brain chemistry and neural function (affecting neurotransmitters that transmit nerve impulses from one neuron to another), thereby influencing mood, sleeping patterns, etc.
Supplementing with brain-specific nutrients, combined with a healthy diet, can have a large impact on brain health and function.
Aging may be unavoidable, but the side effects may be lessened through a supportive healthy diet and lifestyle. Key nutrients have been extensively researched to facilitate the aging process. Since memory seems to decline first in most people, our formula contains Ginkgo biloba and Rosemary which are known to help promote healthy circulation to the brain. We also added B-vitamins to help support homocysteine levels already within a normal range. Phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylcholine both maintain the cell membrane surrounding brain cells, thereby helping to support proper cell signaling between neurons. Omega-3 fish oils are also added to support healthy brain function. DHA, a fatty acid derived from omega-3 fish oil, is rapidly taken up by brain cells.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a common structural component of biological membranes of plants, animals, and other life forms. Human brain cell membranes are highly enriched with PS. Nerve cells depend on healthy membrane function for normal neurotransmitter metabolism and nerve signal transmission. PS levels ensure membrane fluidity, structure, and therefore function. PS is the most researched, scientifically validated brain health nutrient, shown effective in numerous clinical trials to improve brain focus, memory and cognition, plus help alleviate stress and improve mood.
