Brain Revitalizing Nutrients

These four nutrients have been shown in numerous studies to help optimize brain health: GlyceroPhosphoCholine (GPC), Acetyl L Carnitine, Ginkgo Biloba and Inositol.

Research on GPC shows that it is a unique osmoprotectant, can help raise choline and acetylcholine throughout the nervous system and can help to generate unique omega-3 phospholipids to build cell membranes. Improvements in attention, mental focus and cognition have been noted. Numerous studies have even shown its benefit for increased brain recovery following stroke or other injury.

Additionally and important it is water soluble and can cross the blood brain barrier.

ALC is a critical energy co-factor for brain cells, can repair physically damaged neurons, helps stroke victims and helps prevent age related memory decline.

Ginkgo Biloba improves circulation and enhances short and long term memory. It can also help improve mood. The phytosome form is at least two times as bioavailable, with an enhanced degree of efficiency. Inositol is another key osmo protectant and precursor for the second messenger action within the nerve cells.
