Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate provides magnesium in a form that is ideal for the brain which can help support your mood and help maintain the quantity and quality of synaptic connections between brain cells. This in turn also supports a youthful cognition.
Lastly, Omega-3 found in fish oil from Super Omega-3 Plus EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans, Olive Extract, Krill & Astaxanthin contains omega-3 fatty acids from krill- and fish oil, which together can provide enhanced support for your cardiovascular system as well as your brain - all in a single softgel.
About Cognitex® With Brain Shield®:
Research has shown that certain factors that can lead on the on the cognitive problems caused by natural aging can be controlled. Cognitex® with Brain Shield™: is the most comprehensive brain support formula you’ll find anywhere. It contains eight brain health boosting nutrients that can both support overall brain health as well as support a youthful cognition and memory function.
About Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate:
Magnesium in Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in your body and can help you support cardiovascular- and bone health, support energy metabolism, mood, and most importantly contribute positively to maintaining a normal cognitive function when aging. Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate supports healthy memory and cognition by optimizing magnesium levels in the brain. Because of its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system, Neuro-Mag® provides the ideal form of magnesium for enhanced memory and cognitive function.
Super Omega-3 Plus EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans, Olive Extract, Krill & Astaxanthin:
Omega-3 fatty acids from krill oil and fish oil have been shown in various studies to support cardiovascular health and the brain. Astaxanthin found in the Super Omega-3 Plus EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans, Olive Extract, Krill & Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant carotenoid which is naturally present in krill oil. Astaxanthin has been shown to play a role in controlling free radical activity and increasing mitochondrial function. Research shows that this antioxidant can help support the joints as well as brain, cardiovascular- , immune- and mitochondrial health. Furthermore, it can also support healthy blood glucose levels for those already in the normal range and can protect sensitive cells in the eye. Research also suggests that polyphenol extracts from olive oil can help to protect normal low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from oxidation. Besides, sesame lignans in Super Omega-3 Formula Plus play a role to support the omega-3 fatty acids by making them more stable.
The Science Behind the Product:
Cognitex®; with BrainShield™:
Provides the following brain boosting ingredients in one advanced formula:
- Gastrodin acts as a "brain shield," calming brain cells and helping to protect from damage. Gastrodin works in multiple ways to improve circulation and shield the brain from age-related issues.
- L-alpha glyceryl phosphoryl choline (Alpha-GPC) supports the production of acetylcholine in the brain. Proper acetylcholine function is essential for proper memory and learning, though, it declines as we age.
- Hops and rosemary have all shown to help to suppress inflammation.
- Wild blueberry extract has been shown to inhibit oxidative and inflammatory changes in brain cells, believed to be involved in memory decline.
- The ability of phosphatidylserine (PS) to improve cognitive skills has been extensively studied. PS exerts significant benefit memory, learning, vocabulary skills, and concentration and other age-related issues.
- Ashwagandha inhibits an enzyme (acetylcholinesterase) that breaks down acetylcholinein the brain.
- Grape seed extract improves blood vessel tone and elasticity, thus boosting oxygen flow in the brain.
- Uridine-5'-monophosphate (UMP) is a compound naturally found in the milk of nursing mothers and is essential to young brains. Uridine-5'-monophosphate also supports superior cognitive function in ageing adults.
Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate:
Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions and 600 enzymatic reactions in the body. Furthermore, magnesium is also needed to support cardiovascular, bone health, energy metabolism, glucose metabolism, mood, sleep and vitamin D status.
Magnesium L-threonate is a powerful form of magnesium that is delivered into the brain where it can maintain the quantity of synaptic connections between brain cells. It can also support important brain signaling pathways. Increased brain magnesium levels can improve memory. It was shown in compelling animal models that Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate improved short-term memory by 18% and long-term memory by 100%.
The problem with many magnesium supplements is that they are not absorbed well enough into the nervous system. In order to solve this issue, a powerful form of magnesium known as L-threonate has been created. It was shown that this particular form of magnesium can target the aging brain and nervous system. In pre-clinical models, the magnesium L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® increased magnesium levels in spinal fluid by 15% compared to no increase observed with traditional magnesium.
Super Omega-3 Plus EPA/DHA With Sesame Lignans:
The OMEGA FOUNDATIONS® supplement features AlaskOmega® - a fish oil made from wild-caught cold-water Alaska Pollock which is processed in the United States. For the production of fish oil, proprietary technology is used that purifies the fish oil within a highly advanced distillation process that diminishes the pollutants from the environment. Additionally, fish oil is also produced from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable fishery, dedicated to sustainable harvesting practices and protection of the fishery ecosystem.
