Our brains are under constant influence of environmental factors and stress. Changes related to normal ageing is also part of it. However, the cells in our brains have the capacity to defend themselves and even preserve the neurons involved in brain remodelling. Scientists in China and Singapore have found that gastrodin, a compound typically derived from a traditional Chinese orchid (Gastrodia elata) supports these processes. Life Extension introduces Brain Shield™ that provides 300 mg of gastrodin in each capsule for maximum brain support.

Gastrodin in Brain Shield™ has been proven as a very powerful compound for sustaining healthy brain function at any age. It works by the following mechanisms:

  • To retain normal function, the ageing brain relies on blood flow to get sufficient oxygen and fuel. Formulas containing gastrodin beneficially support normal levels of blood flow in both, animal and human, brains;
  • The body maintains a delicate balance of neurotransmitters, important for healthy brain function. Studies show that the active compounds in gastrodia help to maintain healthy levels of vital neurotransmitters in those already within the normal rang;
  • Studies show that gastrodin and other active constituents help support your body's normal defences against the memory problems caused by ageing;
  • Scientists have shown that gastrodin helps to support against the normal stress and tension of daily life;
  • Brain Shield helps alleviate the occasional headaches associated with daily life.

Those seeking maximum benefit should start with one 300 mg capsule of Brain Shield taken twice daily. After 30 days, one Brain Shield capsule daily may be sufficient based upon the experience of gastrodin as an over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical agent. Those taking Cognitex® obtain 50 mg of gastrodin in daily doses along with complimentary nutrients. As additional research continues on gastrodin, better clarification on optimal dosing for a wide range of neurovascular and neuroinflammatory conditions should be available.
