Nature's Sunshine Brain Protex with Huperzine
Put simply, Brain Protex with Huperzine “protects” your brain. With more than 5 million Americans suffering from alzheimer’s disease and others suffering from age related memory loss and dementia, it is more important than ever to take steps to improve brain health.
Brain Protex is designed to protect your body’s most sensitive tissues, the brain mainly, from free radical damage. It seems like we are always hearing about free radicals and their damage these days, but what do we know about them really? The simplified explanation is that free radicals are atoms with an odd number of electrons that cause damage when they react with certain DNA and cellular components. This can lead to increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and, of course, memory problems.
Free radicals can be fought and neutralized with antioxidants. Antioxidants also are known to prevent strokes and to slow the aging process. The herbs contained in Brain Protex are rich in antioxidants and will bolster your mental alertness, staying off age related memory loss.
Nature’s Sunshine looks to herbs found worldwide and used in traditional medicine to bring you the best for your health. Most people have heard about the energy and circulatory boosting benefits of gingko and the heart nourishing nutrient lycopene. But Chinese club moss is not something found in most health supplements.
Chinese club moss is known to have Huperzine as its active ingredient. It has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine, but western medicine is only now beginning to recognize its significance. Clinical trials have shown that there is a great chance that Huperzine can have a positive effect on alzheimer’s and dementia. Many studies have shown an improvement in cognitive function.
A very important element of Brain Protext with Huperzine is the strengthening of capillaries and the blood-brain barrier. It is essential to keep toxins and bacteria out of the brain and central nervous system, weakness of the blood-brain barrier is linked to diseases such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
To prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, lecithin is included. Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter, which basically sends messages in the brain, involved with thought and memory.
It is recommended that 2 capsules of Brain Protex with Huperzine be taken twice a day with a meal. Those interested in nourishing the brain and protecting their memory are also encouraged to take a look at Super Omega-3 EPA, the Nervous System Pack, and Ginkgo Biloba Extra T/R.
