Feel like you have brain drain? Jumpstart your memory and alertness with herbs that are scientifically known to improve your cognitive performance. The chemical components of these herbs support the healthy infrastructure of the brain and provide essential nutrients and antioxidants for its functioning.
Forget-me-nots. Although many extracts and vitamins are promoted to improve cognitive function, certain herbals show the best results in clinical tests. Enerex Memoria contains the botanicals Vinpocetine, Bacopa monnieri, Green Tea, Ginkgo Biloba and Phosphatidylserine.
Ginkgo biloba: One of the best known herbs to aid memory is Ginkgo biloba, which is the oldest known living species of tree. The extract of its leaves has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Some research confirms that Ginkgo biloba extract enhances blood flow to the brain and improves cognitive function.
Ginkgo biloba improves circulation by dilating tiny capillaries, which increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the brain. This is helpful to the elderly, whose brain circulation decreases; Gingko shows promise in research to treat dementia and Alzheimer’s. Ginkgolide-B, an active component in Ginkgo, has also been shown to reduce inflammation. The herb's flavonoids combined with ginkgolide may provide protection for the brain.
Green Tea Extract: Green tea is a source of polyphenols that offer powerful antioxidant protection. It is particularly rich in the catechin type of polyphenol. Inflammation in the brain, increased by stress, poor diet, medications and exposure to toxins, creates free radicals that cause cell damage. This damage may reduce your mental faculties and hasten dementia.
Exposure to free radicals can be especially damaging when brain tissue lacks adequate antioxidants and other nutrients necessary to defend against chronic inflammation. The aging brain has lower levels of these nutrients due to poor nutrition and reduced absorption of nutrients as we age. Some studies show that daily supplementation with green tea extract may boost your brain.
Vinpocetine: Vinpocetine has been used since the 1960s in Europe as a treatment for memory enhancement, and restoring cognitive abilities in the aging brain. Vinpocetine, made from the leaves of the lesser periwinkle plant, has neuroprotective (brain protecting) and blood-flow enhancing abilities.
Besides its ability to help boost general brain power, Vinpocetine may be helpful in treating conditions that benefit from increased blood circulation in the brain (like stroke recovery). Vinpocetine is so powerful, it is a prescription drug in Japan and Europe, but it is available without a prescription as a supplement in Canada and the US.
Phosphatidylserine (PS): Phosphatidylserine is a natural chemical within the body that makes up a major part of the cells’ membrane ( the outer layer). It helps maintain cellular functions, especially in the brain. PS helps nutrients move into cells and helps pump waste out of them. PS supports the brain’s proper response to stress and promotes neuron communication.
The body can make phosphatidylserine, but gets most from foods. (PS supplements are made from cabbage or soybeans.) Phosphatidylserine is used for age-related mental decline, improving thinking skills, ADHD and improving athletic performance.
Bacopa monnieri: In Ayurvedic medicine, the herb Bacopa monnieri has been used for centuries for the brain. Bacopa is used to rejuvenate nerve and brain cells, enhance memory, and improve cognitive functions. Well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz recommended Bacopa monnieri. He said, “Bacopa monnieri will make you smarter, enhance your memory, and help you focus better.” Research shows that the component in this herb called bacosides improves mental clarity and learning.
