Let's look more closely at a few of these fantastic ingredients! See FULL LIST.
Thiamin- It helps produce energy for your body and especially the brain and heart. It is incredibly important for making some neurotransmitters and for nerve function- keeping your brain sharp. The thing is- the body doesn't store thiamine so it relies your your dietary intact for it.
Niacin- Dr.Abram Hoffer famously used niacin in the treatment of schizophrenia and depression (although we do NOT make any treatment claims), has reported niacin might improve memory and perhaps correct some senility issues. A study from China also suggest that it might protect memory function. There are many other great properties of Niacin as well.
Folic Acid- In the US National Library of Medicine it states: Folic acid is important in the nervous system at all ages, but in elderly people deficiency contributes to ageing brain processes, increases the risk of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia and, if critically severe, can lead to a reversible dementia. (Youngevity makes no such claims)
Vitamin B12- supports myelin (which allows nerve impulses to conduct) and when this vitamin is deficient, has been suspected to drive symptoms such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, impaired gait, and sensation. Clinically, B12 may be best-known for its role in red blood cell production. Deficiency states may result in pernicious anemia. B12’s might also play a role in psychiatric symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, and even psychosis?
Choline- needed by the brain for proper manufacture of memory-related neurotransmitters and functional membrane lipids. This becomes critical as we age!
Phosphatidylserine- documented way to fight brain aging. It is very essential to assist the brain in neuron support, maintaining memory function and neuroplasticity ( replacing damaged neurons and making new ones). Crucial to preventing age-related cognitive decline.
Inositol- combines with choline (also in supplement) to create lecithin which helps prevent high cholesterol; may have calming effect on nervous system (studies being done for suggested possible treatments of nerve related illnesses like Alzheimer's disease and depression), other.
Pantothenic Acid- Vitamin B5 is a needed ingredient for the metabolism of choline in order to make the acetylcholine neurotransmitter which is used to send signals between neurons related to memory encoding and also in memory retrieval and possibly also intellectual processing and abstraction. WOW! Higher levels of acetylcholine have been linked to heightened concentration, increased neuroplasticity, possible improved fluid intelligence and even greater clarity of thought and comprehension.... as well as other benefits.
Huperzine A- nootropic that is said to protect the brain's cells from toxicity and also may revitalize cognitive function. It is currently "hot" in the brain enhancement market. Tim Ferris (author of "4 hour work week," "4 hour body") credits it with improving memory- China has used it for memory enhancement. It is suggested that it might be helpful in combating Alzheimer's disease. Research seems to indicate that huperzia extract might modify the formation of brain synapses. This is vital to neuroplasticity which is the brain’s ability to change and adapt to new behaviors, environments, thoughts, emotions, as well as bodily injuries.
Quercetin- American Journal of Physiology published an article entitled "Quercetin increases brain and muscle mitochondrial biogenesis and exercise tolerance." It has been studied for decades and might protect brain cells against excitotoxicity like damage seen in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases. see more benefits of quercetin on our page.
Tocotrienol - has been shown to protect against/ minimize stroke-related brain damage in animal models, might reduce the effect of some oxidant damage-inducing molecules in brain tissue.
Ginko- new rat study suggest that may boost brain function by increasing stem cell growth; other benefits.
Vinpocetine- may protect against neuronal damage, cognitive enhancer, improve memory, improve blood flow to brain.
