Pinnaclife Brain Health was designed specifically to provide the protective nutrients that your brain cells need to resist they types of damage that cause neurodegenerative diseases. It utilizes ingredients that are capable of crossing the blood-brain-barrier and exerting their effects on the brain cells where they are needed.
What does research say about the ingredients used in Pinnaclife Brain Health?
Sulforaphane from broccoli extract is a potent antioxidant that has been shown to have positive effects in ischemic (lack of oxygen/blood flow) and traumatic brain injury while also reducing the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases.
ECG/EGCG from green tea extract are potent antioxidants that have been shown to improve cognitive function and memory while reducing neuronal damage caused by stress and free-radicals.
Trans-resveratrol from grapevine extract has been shown to reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases and protect neurons from oxidative damage.
Hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein from olive leaf extract have been shown to increase genetic expression of Manganese Superoxide Dismutase (MnSOD) which is one of the cell’s most powerful defenses against free-radical damage.
Curcumin, extracted from turmeric, is an extremely potent antioxidant with significant evidence supporting its use in many disease states. It has been shown to protect against neurological damage, and play a role in neurotransmission.
L-taurine is an amino acid with multiple roles in brain health including transmitting nerve impulses (neurotransmission).
Rosavins from Rhodiola Rosea root extract have been shown to reduce the effects of stress in brain cells allowing for improved mental performance in times of stress.
N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that is essential for the production of glutathione – one of the cell’s most important antioxidants and detoxifying molecules. It is vital for the removal of oxidative free-radicals and metabolic wastes that can accumulate and damage brain cells. Low glutathione levels have been associated with increased risk of neurodegenerative disorders while supplementation with NAC has been shown to decrease the risk.
B-Vitamins including B6, B12, and folic acid are vital to the growth and development of brain cells and nerves. Deficiencies during pregnancy are known to result in severe birth defects and mental retardation. Deficiencies over a lifetime have been associated with increased risks of neurodegenerative disorders.
Magnesium is used in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, making it amongst the most important minerals in the body. Without it, cells cannot divide and nerve impulses cannot be sent – leading to atrophy and cell death.
