More than 30 million Americans are over the age of 65. According to estimates, up to 50 percent of them will experience a notable decline in mental abilities like short-term memory when faced with common tasks such as recalling names, maintaining concentration, and preserving mental focus.
If you feel you have lost your mental edge or have trouble concentrating or memorizing, Brain Support may be the perfect solution. This unique formulation is a combination of six different herbs and nutrients designed to help give you back your mental edge.
Brain Support combines extremely high-quality ginkgo biloba extract, phosphatidyl serine, acetyl L-carnitine, DHA powder, choline, and inositol.
Chinese writings record the medicinal use of ginkgo biloba as far back as 2,800 BC. Ginkgo acts to increase blood flow throughout the body and is used to treat a number of different conditions.
Early evidence, while not conclusive, shows great promise for gingko biloba’s ability to enhance memory in healthy subjects.
Phosphatidyl serine (PS) is a naturally occurring phospholipid nutrient possessing the unique ability to improve cognitive functions and enhance mental ability. Nearly all cells in your body need PS to function well, but PS is most highly concentrated in the brain cells.
In the brain PS is involved in many nerve-cell functions. Recent European and American clinical studies have concluded that PS can play an important part in supporting human cognitive functions as we age. A Vanderbilt University and ExPharma of Italy study found that subjects taking PS for 12 weeks experienced improvement in the ability to recall names of familiar people, remember details from the previous day and week, and maintain mental concentration.
Carnitine helps the body convert fatty acids into energy. Some studies have shown that acetyl L-carnitine readily enters the brain and may improve memory in the elderly.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid essential to the proper function of adult brains. Lack of sufficient DHA may be associated with impaired mental ability as well as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children.
Choline is a little-known vitamin needed for the transmission of nerve impulses through the central nervous system.
Our ginkgo biloba extract is manufactured under strict quality-control standards. Like all Japanese and European herbal extracts, ours is regulated according to quality standards that exceed regulatory standards in the United States.
Along with flavone glycosides and terpene lactones, our ginkgo provides 0.8 percent ginkgolide B and other ginkgolide and bilobalide constituents.
