We all have things that slip our minds, like where we put our keys, names of certain acquaintances or what year we took that amazing trip to France… With all these little slips we may start to feel our fading memories are irreversible and those fond milestones in our lives will be lost forever. Even though some memory lapses are normal as we age, they can still be a very frightening thing. Thankfully, all may not be lost. Now there are new ways to increase your memory function and hold on to the parts of life you want to cherish always.
Your working memory, which is responsible for remembering things like where you parked the car, is fueled by networks of neurons located in the prefrontal cortex. These fire constantly to retain information even when you’re not calling on it to do so. When all is working well, information is filed away as part of your brain’s automatic goodwill memory service. Keeping this service healthy is key to keeping your memories intact. Protecting cell membranes from free radical damage allows us to sustain brisk neurochemical activity and ensures that the memories you file away for later use can be quickly accessed whenever you need them.
Maintaining a healthy blood flow to the brain is crucial for carrying fuel into the cells and waste products out. As brain activity increases, blood flow increases also, supplying the brain with vital oxygen and glucose. Keeping an open line for nutrients to feed our brains stimulates activity and encourages better memory capacity.
CanPrev’s Mind-Pro supplies our brains with what it needs to sustain its memory service. Formulated in an easy to take softgel, this twice daily supplement provides powerful antioxidants to slow free radical damage, enhance cerebral blood flow and stimulate the production of essential neurotransmitters.
Mind-Pro contains bacopa monnieri, a booster of the chemical acetylcholine that aids communication between brain cells and helps to store incoming information in the brain. DL-Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is instrumental in converting glucose, the brain’s primary source of energy, in order to increase brain activity and allow it to more efficiently store and access memories. ALA is unique because it’s one of the few materials that can cross the blood brain barrier and act as an antioxidant, protecting the brain from oxidative damage.
Mind-Pro also addresses key risk factors that so frequently affect memory, including vascular problems that block or reduce blood flow to the brain potentially decreasing essential brain nutrients and neurons.
