Naturally Boost Your Brain Power

Your brain is the most complex organ in your body. It’s the center of your nervous system, controlling all other systems of your body. But if your brain is powering you, what powers your brain? These five natural ingredients, that’s what!

Ginkgo Biloba: The Memory Booster*

Derived from the leaves of an ancient tree, ginkgo extract is probably the most highly regarded natural ingredient for supporting recall.* A review of nine placebo-controlled studies, enrolling 2,372 seniors, confirmed this popular herb improves memory.*[1] It’s thought to work by optimizing the viscosity of blood so that more can get to the brain.*[2]

Phosphatidylserine (PS): The Brain Cell Repairman*

PS is a component of cell membranes present in plants and animals. Supplementing with PS helps repair the cell membranes that brain cells need to communicate with each other.*[3] As demonstrated in multiple human clinical studies*[4],[5] ,[6],[7],[8], this boost in cell communication can improve cognition among folks of all ages, from kids who struggle to pay attention to seniors with mild memory problems.

Phosphatidylserine: The Brain Energizer*

Like a power plant in your brain, citicoline helps generate electrical impulses.* That extra energy powers your brain’s messengers — called neurotransmitters — so they can better send information across your synapses.* Cognizin® citicoline has been shown to boost brain activity, thereby improving attention, focus and psychomotor speed in adults and teens.*[14],[15],[16]

Acetyl-L-Carnitine: The Cognition Improver*

Occurring naturally in the brain, acetyl-L-carnitine is a very special amino acid. It increases levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is key to memory and cognition.* It is important to note that acetylcholine declines with age.*[17] That could explain why a review of studies found supplementation helps improve cognition in seniors.*[18]

 Vinpocetine: The Blood Flow Enhancer*

Derived from the periwinkle flower, vinpocetine relaxes the blood vessels, which enhances blood flow to the brain.*[19] More blood means more oxygen, and more oxygen means better brain function.* That’s why vinpocetine has been shown to improve cognition and memory in older adults.*[20],[21] As an antioxidant, it also protects brain cells from oxidative stress.*
