As we age, our cognitive function, which is how we process our thoughts, begins to decrease. Data indicates that deterioration of the framework that underlies the ability to think and reason begins as early as the mid twenties. But, some studies say that if we do word puzzles, mathematics, memory games, we exercise the brain and slow the decrease in cognitive function.
Just like any other muscle, the brain needs to be exercised to maintain its strength. I often say that the little man in my brain that goes to my stored files to pull out information for me is also aging, and it takes him a bit longer to go through those files to find that information. I’m sure that like me, all of you have gone into a room to get something or do something, and when you get there, you cannot remember what it was. When that happens to me, I often have to go back where I started from and look around to see if I can remember it!
Studies say that all aging humans will develop some degree of decline in cognitive capacity, usually including the following symptoms:
- decreased ability to maintain focus
- decreased problem solving capacity
Fortunately, proactive lifestyle changes, cognitive training, and nutritional interventions such as phosphatidylserine have been shown to decrease the rate of intellectual decay and potentially reverse age-related cognitive decline.
Many factors contribute to age-related cognitive decline:
- Oxidative stress and free radical damage
- Chronic low-level inflammation
- Declining hormone levels like estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone
- Inner arterial lining (endothelium) dysfunction
- Insulin resistance
- Excess body weight
- Suboptimal nutrition
- Loneliness, lack of social network, and high stress
Several dietary and lifestyle changes can help reduce age-related cognitive decline:
- Switch from a diet high in simple sugars and saturated fats to a diet high in mono- and polyunsaturated omega-3 fats, fiber, and polyphenols.
- Caloric restriction may improve learning and memory.
- Cognitive stimulation and training, including playing chess and speaking more than one language, can enhance cognitive reserve and convey protection against loss of brain function.
- Exercise is known to increase levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which can lead to enhanced cognitive function.
- Moderate alcohol consumption (up to 2 drinks/day) and caffeinated coffee consumption (~3 cups/day) may convey protection against cognitive decline.
This pill consists of eight natural, comprehensively studied and also clinically validated compounds, all combining their individual qualities to create a powerful, reliable, all-natural and completely safe nootropic (a drug to improve cognitive function). Four of these compounds are discussed below:
Human clinical trials have found that supplementing with phosphatidylserine improves cognitive function in aging subjects with cognitive impairment. Also, these trials have found that orally administered phosphatidylserine in doses ranging from 200 mg to 600 mg daily improves cognitive function in aging subjects with cognitive impairment.
A compound derived from the plant Huperzia serrata, commonly known as clubmoss or firmoss, huperzine A is a well-established inhibitor of the acetylcholinesterase enzyme, a mechanism it shares with many commonly prescribed pharmaceutical treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. Inhibiton of acetylcholinesterase preserves levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is critical for cognition and memory. Also, it has been shown to enhance the memory of young humans. And, when taken in high doses improved scored on cognitive tests by Alzheimer’s patients.
The leaves of the Ginkgo biloba tree have been highly regarded throughout human history, used as a food additive, and also as a traditional medicine. Furthermore, studies have shown that supplementation with ginkgo improves cerebral blood flow. Hence, its benefits for cognition when used in combination with other brain supporting nutrients. In fact, in one study comparing the effects of supplementation with Ginkgo biloba extract alone, to Ginkgo biloba extract together with phosphatidylserine, the combination of the two ingredients resulted in improvements in at least two aspects of memory performance.
In India, where the Bacopa monnieri herb grows, the leaves are held in high regard, and have also long been believed to promote cognitive health. Recently, scientific inquiry into the origins of these Ayurvedic tenets revealed that the herb supports brain function through various mechanisms. Therefore, several human clinical trials have revealed cognitive-enhancing, and memory improving effects of supplementation with Bacopa extract. In one trial, daily doses of 300 mg of Bacopa extract significantly improved visual information processing speed, memory consolidation, and lessened anxiety in healthy individuals after 12-weeks of supplementation.
