Cognitex with Pregnenolone & NeuroProtection Complex 90 Softgel
Protecting brain health is vital if the pursuit of a longer life is to have any meaning. According to current wisdom, some degree of cognitive decline is inevitable as we age,1-5 unless we take steps to prevent it.6-9 The ideal strategy for preserving brain function begins with preventing factors that may contribute to cognitive decline. Good nutrition, including dietary supplements, and a healthy lifestyle are key. Keep your blood pressure and weight in check. Then focus on nutritional support.
Cognitex is formulated to take advantage of the latest developments and ingredients for cognitive health. One of the unique ingredients in the Cognitex formula is uridine-5-monophosphate, a critical brain nutrient.
Uridine-5-monophosphate (UMP) is a basic building block of RNA/DNA as well as of phosphatides such as phosphatidylcholine that are critical to brain function and the health of neuronal cell membranes. Naturally found in the milk of nursing mothers, UMP is essential for the growth and development of infant brains.11 Animal studies suggest that dietary supplementation with UMP may increase brain acetylcholine and phosphatide levels, and enhance some cholinergic functions.
The Cognitex formula provides other critical extracts that support healthy brain function, such as wild blueberry standardized to anthocyanins. Anthocyanins, found in blueberries, are considered one of natures most potent antioxidants and have demonstrated properties that extend well beyond suppressing free radicals.1
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a crucial building block in the brain. In fact, brain tissues are especially rich in this nutrient. However, aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body including brain cells, which can lead to cognitive decline. Phosphatidylserine helps the brain use its fuel efficiently. By boosting glucose metabolism and stimulating production of acetylcholine, supplemental phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve the condition of patients experiencing age-associated memory impairment or cognitive decline.17,18 Thus, replacing this brain food is essential.
Cognitex contains a compound that mimics the naturally occurring PS in the brain. Sharp-PS GOLD, fortified with omega-3 fatty acids, delivers PS to the brain to help maintain youthful cognitive function. These unique nutrients have been extensively studied and may be of tremendous benefit for the aging brain.
