COMPREHENSIVE MEMORY SUPPORT FORMULA; WITH LUTEIN/ZEAXANTHIN AND SOY-FREE‡
This formula combines acetyl-l-carnitine, phospholipids and herbal extracts to promote neural health, cognitive function and memory.
Research suggests that acetyl-l-carnitine supports memory in older adults. Phosphatidylserine is an important cell membrane component critical for neuron function and communication. Research suggests that it promotes healthy neurotransmitter levels and spatial memory. The Ayurvedic herb Bacopa monniera promotes memory as well as mental function and information processing. Ginkgo biloba promotes cerebral blood flow, vascular integrity and healthy red blood cell and platelet function in the brain. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the primary carotenoids in the macula, but have also recently been identified as the primary carotenoids in the brain. Research studies have found a positive association between lutein and zeaxanthin intake, macular pigment density and cognitive function. This association is believed to be due to antioxidant defense and cytokine balance properties, helping to promote neuronal membrane stability and function. Curcumin, resveratrol and lemon balm extracts help to protect neurons from oxidative stress. Additionally, curcuminoids and resveratrol support healthy vascular tissue in the brain by promoting phagocytosis and proteosome activity. The soothing properties of lemon balm are highlighted in one double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, indicating that it promoted relaxation and cognitive function in elderly individuals.‡
Dr. W's Comments: I like Memory Pro because it contains a combination of great herbs and other natural supports that work to make the brain more resilient and stronger in function. In a support like this one there is often a health-creating synergy – a positive coming together of various herbal components – as the various “herbal principles are joined together. It’s that sum is greater than its parts kind of thing. This is a good support for both the old and the youthful. It supports the brain for those who are pushing their brains to be smarter and for those who are striving to get their brain to maintain (and even renew) itself.
I recommend taking 3 a day with meals; if your budget allows it and you are having significant brain issues, I’d take 3 2-3X per day. While the amounts of the ginkgo and other ingredients are reasonably high, I find that more is better in many cases.
If you are an older person with brain issues, you might want to add a capsule of our PS Plus, which is 150mg of phosphatidylserine. There is some of this valuable brain nutrient in Memory Pro, but one capsule of
PS100 has what nine capsules of Memory Pro has in regard to the memory- helping nutrient, phosphatidylserine
