How it works
It has adaptogenic properties, that is, it reduces the effects of physical and mental stress. It has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and neuroprotective properties, the gingko extract proves to be a good remedy to reduce tinnitus. It is also known for its activity on venous and arterial circulation and above all on the cerebral circulation: by increasing the blood flow to the brain, it improves mental acuity, concentration, short-term memory, and cognitive ability.
It is an important structural component of cell membranes and is found in concentrated quantities in brain cells. Studies indicate that phosphatidylserine may benefit memory, mood and cognitive function.
It is a substance found in the cells of the body, which provides precursors for the synthesis of phospholipids, including phosphatidyl choline, an important constituent of brain tissue; helps maintain normal levels of acetylcholine, a chemical that regulates memory and cognitive functions; improves communication between neurons and protects neural structures from free radical damage. Clinical studies have shown that it can help maintain normal cognitive function as we age and protect the brain from free radical damage.
It reduces stress and anxiety by stimulating GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptors in the brain, a neurotransmitter that acts as a relaxant of brain activity. Magnesium reduces the production of stress hormones, such as cortisol (one of the most dangerous anxiety detonators), and acts as a neuroprotector preventing them from reaching the brain. It also plays a key role in protecting our auditory system as it also protects the nerves of the inner ear.
It is stored in the brain in specific synaptic vesicles of glutamate neurons and can modulate neuronal excitability. It plays a key role in synaptic plasticity and thus in the complex learning function. Zinc homeostasis also plays a critical role in the functional regulation of the central nervous system.
Vit. B1 – B6 – B12
These vitamins protect brain functions by regulating energy metabolism and assisting in the production of chemicals that affect mood and contribute to the formation and maintenance of myelin that lines nerve fibers. Vitamin B deficiency could cause decreased memory, anxiety, confusion, irritability and depression. Low levels of vitamin B6, B12 and folate are associated with low levels of S-adenosyl-methionine, a molecule with antidepressant and brain function enhancing effects.
