Ginkgo biloba has been used to enhance brain function inChina dating back to 2800 B.C. It is a potent antioxidant and has a specific affinity for the cerebrovascular system. It improves blood flow to the brain as well as the extremities and enhances cellular metabolism.
Ginkgo has been shown to produce significant improvements in short-term memory, mental alertness, mood disturbances, vertigo, headaches, and ringing in the ears in controlled studies. Double-blind clinical trials have shown that the memory enhancing effects of Ginkgo are not limited to the elderly but also apply to normal young healthy individuals.
It has also been shown to be of great benefit in many cases of senility, including Alzheimer’s disease due its ability to improve blood flow, scavenge free radicals, normalize the brain’s acetylcholine and Serotonin receptors, and increase cholinergic transmission in the brain.
Bacopa monniera (Bacopin™) has been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for the treatment of epilepsy since ancient times. The plant contains saponins known as Bacosides A and B attributed with the ability to enhance Protein Kinase-C (PKC) and its necessary growth-associated protein, which helps to synthesize new brain neurons, replacing the worn-out ones.
Clinical studies have shown that Bacopa monniera supplementation significantly increases short term memory and improves capabilities to think and reason, and at the same time also reduces fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration and insomnia.
Pregnenolone is a natural hormone made primarily in the adrenal glands, but also in the brain. Standardized supplements are produced from diosgenin found in the Mexican Wild Yam. It is often referred to as the “Mother Hormone” because it can be converted by the body into DHEA, Progesterone, or in lesser amounts to other hormones, depending on the body’s needs.
Pregnenolone is known to stimulate the N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the brain. These receptors play an important role in regulating the function of the synapses between neurons that influence learning and memory. Aging is associated with a decrease in production of Pregnenolone as well as the number of NMDA receptors, which may partly account for the loss of memory and onset of senility that occurs with age.
Pregnenolone has been found to improve memory and clarity of thinking, as well as increase a sense of well being, reduce feelings of depression and enhance alertness and awareness.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) is essential for proper energy production in the brain. Vitamin B1 deficiency is characterized by impaired mental function, inability to concentrate, irritability, agitation, sleep disturbances, lethargy, weakness, muscle pains, and paresthesia. It mimics the action of acetylcholine, the brain neurotransmitter involved in memory. Clinical trials have shown that Vitamin B1 improves mental function in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and age-related impaired mental function (senility), as well as patients with epilepsy.DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) is a B-Vitamin like factor found to stabilize cell membranes in the brain. Senility and aging are thought to be accelerated by cross-linking of neuronal tissue induced by hydroxyl (OH) free radicals. As a potent hydroxyl (OH) free radical scavenger, DMAE appears to protect neuronal membranes and important enzyme functions related to gene expression and the elimination of damaged cellular components. It has been found in clinical trials to increase absolute theta power induced by mental demand and significantly increase memory and symbol recognition.
