Power Memory

Power Memory and Brain Health

Healthy Tips from our Scientific Director

There is a slowing of brain function that naturally occurs in us as we age. This occurs for two reasons. There is a drop in the concentration of growth factors that repair spaces between nerves (known as the synaptic region). This leads to a slowing of healing of the synapse and a decrease in the efficiency of nerve transmission and therefore cell-to-cell communication falters. Also, the numerous tiny power plants found in each nerve cell become old and wrinkled and their efficiency decreases therefore decreasing the creation of energy in the brain. These tiny power plants are called mitochondria.

As it turns out we can retool these mitochondria restoring energy production in the brain. When you restore energy production you improve efficiency. When the brain has the energy and efficiency - healing can take place. You literally restore the ability to heal the brain restoring some level of function to its neurons (the brains nerve cells). This also protects the brain from the increased level of toxic free radicals that are generated as we age and are part of the process leading to deteriorating brain function and loss of cognitive function that result in poor memory.

With the proper cocktail of nutrients that address the health of these tiny power plants you can protect your brain, improve its health and restore mental energy. You will eventually likely notice an improvement in focus, attention span, creativity, energy, memory and learning skills, and an improved mood. This is especially true if you eat the right foods and take the correct supplements. You are literally turning back the hands of time on an aging brain by improving energy production and healing, therefore improving brain metabolism.

The nutrients ALCAR, ALA, and Ubiquinol are true mitochondrial nutrients restoring function to brain cells by improving energy production and metabolism. DHA is the fat from fish that helps protect, restore, and improve the health and functionality of the brain. Foods very high in antioxidant value such as blueberries, spinach and Spirulina also help by improving the rate of healing in the brain. The nutrients and foods will literally restore the level of growth factors that heal the space between nerve cells. Healing these synaptic regions is very important for restoring all manner of brain function. By improving energy production and metabolism and by restoring the ability to heal you truly reverse aging in the brain to a degree and this of course is superior to just slowing the aging process down.

Cognition Hx

Cognition Hx supplies key nutrients for brain energy, activity and function. A smaller serving size of Ginkgo biloba functions as an antioxidant for the brain and also restores circulation to the most advanced region of the brain, the cortex, where higher mental processes take place. The nutrients Phosphatidylserine, NADH, and Acetyl-L-Carnitine work together to promote energy flow and cellular health. Huperzia serrata, a club moss, is included because it modestly improves the level of acetylcholine; the neurotransmitter in the brain involved with memory and learning.

DHA Tx

DHA Tx is a non-fish source of DHA. Traditional DHA is one of the powerful fats from cold water fish that is so good for the brain. These fish do not create DHA but get it in their diet from algae and algae is the source for our DHA. Algae are primitive plants that lack roots. DHA from Algae helps restore the entire terrain of the brain back to health putting everything in good working order. DHA accomplishes this by providing fluidity to cell membranes allowing the proper flow of energy for cellular communication. DHA has been shown to improve mood even in the depressed. Reduce stress and anxiety, aid cognitive function, increase self control and the ability to learn in children and adults. It is a powerful protector of mental function in the elderly. Our DHA is from algae and is in an alcohol free-all vegetarian liquid drop.

ALCAR with ALA

ALCAR and ALA are true mitochondrial nutrients. ALCAR is the delivery truck for the substrate used to create energy. But the effectiveness of ALCAR doesn’t end with delivering the fuel for energy production - ALCAR also supervises the production of energy restoring proper energy flow. ALA is a powerful antioxidant and it is the currency for energy production; it creates the gasoline that fuels the engine. These two nutrients in tandem restore efficiency to cellular power plants improving metabolism. Their use results in an improvement in mental energy, restoration of memory functions, improved verbal fluency, and a restoration of youth to the brain and nervous system.

Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol is the most technologically advanced form of Coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Q10 is the spark plug for energy use and without it you become a slug. Coenzyme Q10 has been studied and used for decades and current research demonstrates its effectiveness for improving brain health. Yet it is notoriously difficult to absorb and doesn’t work as well in the people who need it the most; the elderly and the unhealthy. They have trouble converting Coenzyme Q10 to its active form. Ubiquinol is identical to the active form created in healthy young adults. Ubiquinol is easier to absorb achieving higher blood and organ levels. Richer levels equates to greater results. The result is improved mental function, and greater brain protection because Ubiquinol is a natural antioxidant in the brain. Our Ubiquinol is all natural and vegetarian, is well absorbed and protected from the environment by the technology we utilize so it retains freshness and activity.
