7 Ingredients for Brain Health: When More is More
Your Brain is Elegant and Complicated
Your brain is one of the most complicated machines in the world. It works through many different mechanisms, and it’s because of this diversity that our Brain & Memory Power Boost supplement has been so effective at improving cognitive function for so many people.
Our Brain & Memory Power Boost utilizes seven intensively researched, key ingredients to improve these many different mechanisms in order to get the best brain-boosting results.
Ingredients for Brain Support
Two of these ingredients, Vinpocetine and Ginkgo Biloba Extract, work together to support healthy blood flow to the brain, which is vital considering your brain requires 20 percent of your body’s total oxygen and blood sugar resources. In addition, the issues associated with cognitive decline during aging often stem from a lack of proper blood flow.
We always say, “Some of the prettiest brain scans we have seen at Amen Clinics come from people who take Ginkgo.”
Another ingredient, PhosphatidylSerine (or PS for short) works at the synapse, or the connections between brain cells. PS works with your brain cells to help them communicate quickly and efficiently for longer periods, as opposed to slowing down.
To ensure your brain has enough energy to function throughout the day at high levels, we incorporated both Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) a key nutrient for creating energy in our nerve cells, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid, which influences the enzymes that help produce more energy in the body.
And as if all this weren’t enough, we added N-AcetylCysteine (NAC), the brain’s most useful antioxidant that works to help your nerve cells stay balanced, keeping conditions optimal. In addition to NAC, we included Huperzine A, an extract from Huperzia serrata (club moss), a traditional Chinese medicinal herb, that supports your acetylcholine system, a key brain neurotransmitter.
A Multiple-Mechanism Approach to Memory Loss
The ingredients in Brain & Memory Power Boost work to support multiple mechanisms in your brain. This multiple-mechanism approach is how we think about formulating supplements. As with health in general, no single approach will help you reach your goals but rather a combination of techniques and habits to contribute to better health. That’s why we always recommend a healthy diet, exercise, plenty of sleep, and good relationship habits to accompany your supplement regimen.
