Memory and Brain w/ALC & PC Liver and Brain
Andrew Lessman's Memory and Brain with Acetyl L-Carnitine and PC Liver and Brain is a unique blend of over 20 ingredients providing our most comprehensive, natural support for the memory, brain, and mental acuity. It also includes the most critical structural components for brain and liver cells – Phosphatidyl Choline (PC).
What distinguishes human beings from other animals is our brain's remarkable abilities; yet, as we age, we all experience significant changes in memory and brain function. This formula provides a long list of natural tools to help support the retention of our brain's extraordinary abilities, particularly as we age. Our brain requires an enormous supply of energy, so we begin with high levels (500 mg) of Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC). ALC is recognized for its role in energy production within the brain, while also being a building block for Acetylcholine (our primary neurotransmitter). ALC is included as our first line of defense in combating the normal, age-related changes in memory, concentration and mental acuity.
We also add Huperzine from Chinese Club Moss to support healthy levels of neurotransmitters to promote normal cognitive and memory function. Because our brain requires an uninterrupted supply of oxygen and nutrients, we also include Ginkgo Biloba and Vinpocetine to support healthy blood flow to the brain, thereby ensuring the resources necessary for optimum brain function. Both of these natural ingredients have been shown to help combat those normal, age-related changes in brain function. We add Bacopa for its long history of use in Ayurvedic (Indian) Medicine, along with our highly absorbable Turmeric Extract with its standardized Curcumin Phospholipid Complex.
We also include Vitamin D3, since Vitamin D receptors are most concentrated in the highest functioning areas of the brain and it is essential for optimum brain function as we age. We also add our sophisticated high potency B-Complex formula, including our absorption-protected Methyl B12 and Methyl Folate (5-MTHF), because of their essential role in brain and nervous system. Lastly, since our sense of well-being is a central part of mental function, we also include our standardized extract of Panax (Asian) Ginseng.
The three golden liquid capsules in each packet contain the phospholipids essential for healthy brain and liver function. They focus on Phosphatidyl Choline (PC), which is the predominant phospholipid in the brain and liver and is now recognized by the FDA as an essential nutrient because of its important role and scarcity in our diet. PC is essential for the creation of all brain and liver cells, as well as the production of the nervous system's most important neurotransmitter – Acetylcholine. PC is also required to produce the vital protective sheath for our brain and nerve cells.
The liver is arguably our hardest working organ and PC makes up two-thirds of its enormous internal surface area (almost 8 acres!) where it performs protein, fat and cholesterol metabolism, as well as processing all waste products (all alcohol and medicines) and almost single-handedly doing all the "dirty" work required to keep the body's internal environment healthy and "clean." Not surprisingly, the regenerative powers of the liver are unique among all internal organs and PC empowers the liver to rebuild and regenerate its hard-working tissues.
