Energize your brain with Nu-Life's Focus Formula, a blend of over 10 nutrients formulated to support healthy brain and cognitive function. Infused with Vitamins B-6, B-12, C & E, plus Phosphatidylcholine, Omega 3, Ginkgo, Huperzine-A and more. This unique blend is ideal for those who experience difficulty with concentration, memory and attentiveness Memory Enhancment Memory lapses affect everyone at some point in time.
They are frustrating and can become worrisome if one thinks that their memory capacity is decreasing. Although the brain and nervous system is somewhat protected from factors which can invade other body cells, its segregation also makes it prone to the build-up of toxins and other harmful agents. Because it contains a significant amount of fat, fat-soluble toxins like heavy metals, and environmental chemicals, like DDT, can concentrate in the brain leading to poor memory. Poor diet hampers memory because the brain is an extremely vital area that has high metabolic requirements.
The brain uses only the sugar, glucose, for energy.
Fluctuating blood sugar is not conducive to optimal brain functioning and memory. Fats, amino acids and vitamins must also be in abundant supply for nervous system functioning. The brain and nerve sheaths are made of fats that are deficient in the standard North American diet.
This results in compromised nerve conduction and brain cell communication, which can compromise memory. Stressand emotional upset impact on memory by depleting neurotransmitters and leading to a build ?up of damaging agents called free radicals.
Free radicals have been associated with the degeneration of the brain. Vinpocetine Derived fromperiwinkle, Vinpocetine (from Voacanga africana seed) is a phytonutrient with remarkable brain boosting abilities.
Vinpocetine supports brain function by improving brain metabolism through increasing cerebral microcirculation and the delivery of glucose and oxygen across the blood-brain barrier, while increasing ATP synthesis. Studies show Vinpocetine may benefit those concerned with cognitive enhancement, hearing function, eye health and more. Huperzine Huperzine-A is derived from a rare type of club moss(Huperzia serrata). This potent substance has proven its ability to sharpen the mind and potentially reduce the effects of Alzhimers's disease.Huperzine has the ability to help slow the breakdown of acetylcholine, which is vital for proper brain and memory function.
EFAs: Natural Brain Boosters The standard North American diet is deficient in essential fatty acids, especially omega 3s. Every cell needs essential fatty acids for its cell membrane where the fats make the important barrier that lets other molecules into and out of the cell. It is an essential component of the brain and central nervous system. It seems to concentrate in areas where there is lots of electrical activity such as the synaptosomes, where nerve cells communicate, and the photoreceptors of the eye. This is why a deficiency of DHA can result in poor brain development, attention/deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, memory problems and poor visual development. The essential fat DHA can:
Optimize neurotransmitter production Ginkgo Biloba Gingko is used to increase blood flow to the whole body but especially to the brain and extremities. The active components are flavone glycosides, potent antioxidant molecules. Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. Gingko?s antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and therefore reduce damage to vessels all over the body, including those in the brain. It has anti-aging properties because as an antioxidant it protects the body against environmental pollutants other substances that lead to aging. Gingko increases circulation by making the blood flow freely, thus enhancing oxygen delivery to and waste removal from cells. Gingko may also improve the communication between brain and nerve cells
