For those who wish to support the structure of the brain as the years go by.
A formula that improves brain function by restoring the outgrowth of neurites on brain cells. Neurites are the branch-like extensions (axons and dendrites) on brain cells where communication takes place. As we age, a reduction in this neurite network can occur, resulting in a corresponding loss of brain function.
Affected processes can include:
NGF is different from other kinds of brain products. Unlike other formulas NGF enhances brain function by actually improving the structure of brain cells through enhanced neurite outgrowth. Every aspect of brain function can benefit. NGF contains nutrients that have been shown to increase neurite outgrowth and help restore and enhance the structural basis of the brain"s neural communications network.
NGF contains acetyl L-carnitine (ALC) which has been shown to increase nerve growth factor activity as much as 100-fold. ALC increases the number of nerve growth factor receptor sites on brain cells, thereby enhancing the rate of neurite outgrowth. A related compound, acetyl carnitine arginate, works synergistically by mimicking the action of nerve growth factor itself.
Another ingredient, uridine, has been shown to re-grow axons and dendrites during growth and development stages, as well as in older animals. Uridine has also been shown to improve cognitive function.
Gotu kola contains several active principals called asiaticosides. These improve cognition in older animals while stimulating axon-dendrite growth and out branching in key areas of the brain. Gotu kola has been used for centuries as a brain tonic in Indian and Chinese medicine and its use has been recorded for 2,000 years.
Gingko biloba has been shown to reduce the free radical oxidative stress produced by the presence of senile plaque in older brains. It is also able to improve undesirable structural changes to neurites caused by the presence of senile plaque. Gingko is a well-known promoter of blood circulation in the brain.
