- Provides specific botanicals, amino acids, circulatory aides, antioxidants, and accessory nutrients for optimal cognitive function and memory enhancement.
- Enhanced neuroprotection, mitochondrial energy support, and neurotransmitter balancing.
N-ACETYL L-CARNITINE (ALCAR) normally produced in the mitochondria, is a precursor of acetyl-Coenzyme A in the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. ALCAR’s ability to attenuate oxidative stress and prevent mitochondrial ATP depletion is why ALCAR is considered a neuronal-support compound. ALCAR protects against beta-amyloid neurotoxicity and significantly reduces oxidative damage to RNA. Electron microscope studies of the hippocampus in old rats showed that ALCAR and or R-Alpha Lipoic acid reversed age-associated mitochondrial structural decay. Consider CogniFactors for your patients with mild to moderate memory impairment.
PHOSPHATIDYLSERINE (PS) enhances cholinergic function, restores acetylcholine release (in aging rats), and prevents age-related reduction in dendritric spine density in the rat hippocampus. Studies have shown PS to restore Protein Kinase C activity. PS hasdemonstrated some usefulness in treating cognitive impairment and age-associated memory impairment. It is also useful in treating those patients with well known degenerative memory impairment conditions.
NATTOKINASE is created by the bacterial fermentation of soy beans from the bacterium Bacillus Natto. Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi discovered this enzyme, “The enzyme of enzymes.” Nattokinase functions as a fibrinolytic. Daily use reduces the risk of thrombotic events that may otherwise threaten our patients’ lives (CVA, MI PE, etc.). Nattokinase enhances normal circulation and oxygen perfusion to tissues.
BACOPA LEAF (BACOPA MONNIERA)has antioxidant properties and has a long traditional Ayurvedic use for memory enhancement. Rat studies show that Bacopa increases learning skills and visual information processing. Human studies show that Bacopa decreases the rate of forgetting and improves mood.
