Brain Cell Support Plus™ was designed to support optimal brain health and mood. In addition to Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC), Brain Cell Support Plus contains Cognizin®, a potent brain-health nutrient clinically shown to support mental energy, focus, attention and recall.* Brain Cell Support Plus also provides Phosphatidylserine, DMAE and two well-researched brain-supporting botanicals – Ginkgo Biloba and Gotu Kola – to support healthy neurotransmitter production and circulation.* Two additional natural compounds – Huperzine A and Vinpocetine – support memory and cerebral blood-flow.
Brain Cell Support Plus™ - Advanced Brain Support Formula
Here are the ingredients that contribute Brain Cell Support Plus’ efficacy:
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a cognitive enhancer and neuroprotective agent that protects against a wide range of age-related degenerative changes in the brain and nervous system.
DMAE crosses the blood brain barrier, and is converted to choline, a precursor to acetylcholine, the memory neurotransmitter. Studies with DMAE have demonstrated improvements in mood and behavior in older adults.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a naturally-occurring phospholipid nutrient that improves brain function. Supplementation with PS has been proven to slow, halt, or in many cases, even reverse cognitive degeneration that often occurs with age.
Ginkgo biloba protects brain cells from damage caused by free radicals while improving blood circulation and oxygen delivery through the microcapillaries.
Gotu kola (Centella asiatica has been used around the world for centuries to treat nervous disorders, epilepsy, senility and premature aging. It stimulates learning, memory and alertness, and can calm anxiety. In traditional Chinese health customs gotu kola was referred to as the “fountain of youth” herb.
Huperzine A (from the Chinese club moss Huperzia serrata): improves memory and learning in healthy humans as well as those with dementia. It prevents acetylcholinesterase (AchE) from destroying acetylcholine, the memory molecule. In one study, researchers found that 58 percent of Alzheimer’s patients experience significant improvement in both cognitive and memory function when taking Huperzine.
Vinpocetine (from the periwinkle plant) is a powerful memory-enhancing nutrient that enhances cerebral metabolism and microcirculation, stepping up brain cell ATP (energy) production. It also selectively increases blood flow to the brain, particularly to impaired areas.
Cognizin® Citicoline is a precursor to acetylcholine, a cholinergic neurotransmitter that declines with age. Citicoline is often called a “brain nutrient” because it increases levels of several important neurotransmitters including acetylcholine, dopamine and noradrenaline. It conducts nerve impulses within the brain, improving memory and learning skills, elevating mood, preventing memory loss in elderly adults, and increasing physical energy. It also helps maintain the integrity of neuronal cell membranes – a function also performed by the phosphatidylserine in this formula. Citicoline and acetyl L-carnitine promote increased energy production in the brain, specifically in the frontal cortex. Supplementation with Citicoline has been shown to promote memory, attention, and behavior in mentally healthy older adults as well.
Directions:Two (2) capsules once to twice daily with meals as a dietary supplement, or as directed by a health care professional.
DMAE, acetyl L-carnitine, and gotu kola may all have a mild stimulatory effect in the brain, enhancing focus and concentration, so It is recommended that Brain Cell Support Plus be taken in the morning and/or by mid-day.*
