ADVANCED BRAIN FUNCTION, MEMORY ENHANCER, SMART NOOTROPIC SUPPLEMENT CEREBRATE is a high quality, precision-formulated, advanced neuro-enhancing nootropic formula. This comprehensive blend of herb extracts and nutraceuticals contains compounds known to support memory and cognitive function. It provides important antioxidants and other critical nutrients that can help nourish the brain, promote healthy homocysteine levels, and protect against age-related decline. The proprietary blend of high-grade ingredients in CEREBRATE support memory and brain function, ensuring your brain gets plenty of oxygen-rich blood and proper glucose utilization, both key factors in mental acuity and overall cerebral health. It is a remarkable nutritional supplement for helping keep your most important tool, your brain, in optimal working condition. What Makes This Memory Support Supplement Effective? CEREBRATE is an advanced formulation of high-grade organic extracts with proven benefits on brain function, health and memory recall. Phosphatidylserine (PS) PS, a naturally occurring phospholipid from soy, is a natural nutrient found as part of the membrane of cells. It is most notably found in the cell membrane of neurons, comprising about 7 to 10 percent of its lipid content. The FDA gave "qualified health claim" status to phosphatidylserine, stating that, "Consumption of phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of dementia in the elderly" and "Consumption of phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction in the elderly. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) Ashwagandha and Bacopa Monniera are ancient Ayurvedic preparations historically used as tonics to improve vitality and cognitive function. In the Indian Ayurvedic tradition ashwagandha is used to promote rejuvenation, mental and physical health. A study done in 1991 at the Department of Pharmacology, University of Texas Health Science Center indicated that extracts of ashwagandha had GABA-like activity. Researchers from Banaras Hindu University in Varanasi, India, discovered that some of its chemicals are powerful antioxidants. They tested these compounds for their effects on rat brain and found an increase in the levels of three natural antioxidants — superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase Traditional application of Bacopa Monniera suggests that it has a direct effect on improving brain functions, increasing concentration, and in promoting memory functions. Bacosides play a protective role in the synaptic functions of the nerves in the hippocampus, the seat of memory. Gingko Biloba: Studies show that Gingko Biloba may improve brain and memory function by enhancing oxygenation and improving blood micro-circulation. "Although not definitive, there is promising early evidence favoring the use of ginkgo for memory enhancement." (Mayo Clinic). One major 65-week study on ginkgo’s mental effects showed that 58% of a group of elderly patients who took 100 mg/day showed improvement in memory, alertness, attention, mood, and awareness over those taking a placebo (Carlson JJ, Farquhar JW, DiNucci E, et al. Safety and efficacy of a ginkgo biloba-containing dietary supplement on cognitive function, quality of life, and platelet function in healthy, cognitively intact older adults. J Am Diet Assoc 2007 Mar;107(3):422-32.) Moreover, one of the major problems within today's environment is reduced percentage of oxygen in the air. Cities by the ocean are supposed to have about 12% oxygen in the air, but due to pollutants, oxygen levels are actually reduced to about 7%. In inland cities or factory towns the oxygen content in the air is even lower. Gingko's ability to supply additional quantities of oxygen to the brain is valuable in restoring brain health. CDP Choline: Cytidine-5-diphosphocholine is a form of choline that passes readily through the blood-brain barrier directly into brain tissue. It activates the synthesis of critical components in cell membranes, enhances cerebral energy metabolism and increases levels of various transmitters. It is also used by the brain to produce acetylcholine, a major brain / motor neuron transmitter that facilitates the transmission of impulses between neurons. It is critical in many areas of brain development and function. Vinpocetine: Derived from the periwinkle plant, vinpocetine is a supplement with a wide variety of biological effects. It causes relaxation of smooth muscle, dilation of blood vessels, and improved blood flow, all of which have beneficial health effects. It also provides protection for nerve cells deprived of oxygen and nutrients, and further protects those cells from oxidative stress when blood flow is restored. (Vas A, Gulyas B, Szabo Z, et al. Clinical and non-clinical investigations using positron emission tomography, near infrared spectroscopy and transcranial Doppler methods.) Huperzine A Extracted from Chinese club moss, huperzine A is a substance that increases acetylcholine in the brain (see above) and promotes nerve cell growth. Used to help people with memory decline and even alzheimers, huperzine A is now recognized for its value to brain health. In one research project in China, huperzine A significantly improved the memory of middle school children who complained of memory problems. In another study, researchers gave either placebo or 200 mcg of huperzine A to 50 patients with Alzheimer’s disease. At the study’s conclusion, 58% of the huperzine A treated patients showed improvements in memory, cognition, and behavioral functions compared to only 36% in the placebo group. Researchers observed no significant side effects in the huperzine A treated patients.
