Concerns about Brain Health and Memory Loss Rise as We Age
Mood, memory, cognitive function and brain health continue to be some of the most discussed health topics as we grow older. About 1 in 5 people experience depression in the U.S.,1 and 6.7 million Americans 65 years and older are living with Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Association.2
The good news is that research scientists are expanding knowledge in the field of brain health backed by the ever-increasing demand for more natural solutions. Brain health scientists such as Martha Clare Morris, Ph. D., Daniel Amen, M.D., and Dale Bredesen, M.D., are discovering natural approaches to maintaining and improving cognitive health.
The Impact of Lifestyle on Brain Health
Dr. Bredesen developed the first program to prevent and reverse the cognitive decline of dementia. He states, “Drugs are the dessert, not the entrée.” He further states that a drug program without a healthy lifestyle—including a healthy diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, social support and supplements such as Bacopa monnieri and pantothenic acid—does not optimally address the complexities of the process and, therefore, will not prevent or arrest, and certainly will not reverse, cognitive decline.3
Did you know that a healthy brain also provides the ability to sleep, speak, hear, taste, smell, see, feel, balance, and have coordination and other healthy vital functions? As we age, brain health can become compromised, but there is so much we can do to maintain brain health at every age. Harvard experts state that the heart of their brain health and cognitive fitness program is selfcare, so they developed a five-step method for supporting cognitive health.4
Harvard’s 5 Steps for Cognitive Fitness
- Eat a plant-based diet
- Exercise regularly
- Get enough sleep
- Manage stress
- Nurture social contacts
Natural Brain Health Supplement to Aid Memory
NeuroShine® is a 3-in-1 dietary supplement for improved focus, concentration, mood, memory and cognitive function.
TriVita worked with top brain health clinicians to develop a natural supplement formula with ingredients clinically shown to maintain and improve healthy cognition, memory, mood and cognitive performance. The result is NeuroShine, consisting of BacoMind® (Bacopa monnieri), pantothenic acid, and a special form of lithium called lithium orotate to enhance bioavailability and absorption.
BacoMind to help improve memory
BacoMind is a patented form of an antioxidant-rich aquatic plant called Bacopa monnieri. Bacopa monnieri has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to promote memory and longevity.5 Bacopa monnieri (BacoMind) has been reported to aid adults in cognitive performance. For instance, positive results were recorded in a double-blind placebo study, an age-related memory impairment test showing that BacoMind was found to enhance cognitive functions including focus and concentration, as well as verbal memory.6
Lithium orotate to support a healthy mood
Lithium orotate, a specific form of lithium salt found in food and drinking water, is known as one of the best and most effective natural mood stabilizers.7 Lithium orotate delivers all the benefits of lithium without the risk of dangerous side effects.5 Unlike pharmaceutical lithium, lithium orotate is effective in extremely small amounts.5 One study compared the low environmental dose range of 300 micrograms of lithium to placebo in a group of patients who had mild cognitive impairment. The data of the study showed a microdose of lithium prevented cognitive loss.5
Pantothenic acid for stress reduction and greater energy
Pantothenic acid, otherwise known as Vitamin B5, is required for the synthesis of some essential neurotransmitters needed for focus and attention. Vitamin B5 supports overall energy production and is necessary for the synthesis of some essential nutrients. It is popularly known for its energy metabolism and its contribution to the proper functioning of the brain. This vitamin is also required as an important precursor of Coenzyme A category, an essential enzyme for energy and protein metabolism.8
