The Main Ingredients

B Vitamins

B vitamins have made headlines for their powerful role in preventing cognitive decline and more serious dementia such as Alzheimer's disease. Mental fogginess and problems with memory are actually two of the top warning signs that you have vitamin B12 deficiency, indicating its importance for brain health. The brain is by far the most metabolically active organ in the body, representing only 2% of body weight but accounting for over 20% of the body's total energy expenditure.The B vitamins' general metabolic functions, alongside their roles in neurochemical synthesis, may therefore be conceived as having a particular impact on brain function. Indeed, the importance of the B vitamins for brain function is illustrated by the fact that each vitamin is actively transported across the blood brain barrier and/or choroid plexus by dedicated transport mechanisms.

Omega 3

A large percentage of the human brain consists of fats, including several essential fats which the body cannot produce and must obtain from food sources. Omega 3-, 6 and 9 essential fats are very important for brain development and function, Fruits, vegetables, seeds and plant oils (including margarine) are rich in Omega 6 and 9 and a healthy diet will provide an ample supply. Omega 3 is absolutely vital for our brains and overall health and less readily available. Best source of Omega 3 is fish. If your diet does not include fish at least 3 times a week, consider taking more than one soft gel per day. Ask your pharmacist or doctor for advice .

Vitamin C

Our bodies can't make nor store vitamin C, so we must receive it every day through supplements and/or food and drinks. There are many studies that show how higher amounts of vitamin C in the bloodstream can boost brain function at all ages and protect against age-related brain degeneration, including Alzheimer's disease and strokes. As an antioxidant nutrient, vitamin C helps remove toxins and wastes. Vitamin C may also help prevent the build-up of toxins in the brain that can lead to disorders such as Alzheimer's, which affects memory and Parkinson's, which damages the nerves. Vitamin C is also required for the production of neurotransmitters. Additionally, it helps build the elastic tissue collagen that keeps arteries flexible for improved blood flow to your brain.


Magnesium is used in over 300 processes in the body and over 50 in just the brain alone. It improves neural plasticity, meaning the nerves are able to adapt and avoid damage easier. Magnesium is important for the conversion of many B vitamins into their active form. In other words, taking any vitamin supplement on its own would be futile without magnesium and other minerals as their interplay is what makes the brain work. Studies have shown that magnesium improves working and long-term memory. The magnesium in cell membranes is also important for the transmission of impulses.


If you get sick, zinc helps to restore good health by boosting the immune system. In the brain, it helps control neural impulses. High doses of zinc are known to help reduce epilepsy seizures. Increasing your zinc intake, can also help smooth neuro connections and make recall easier. Scientists have been able to watch zinc in action as the nutrient regulates communications between neurons and the hippocampus to improve memory and learning capabilities. Ensuring proper intake of zinc is an important step toward optimal brain function and may prevent cognitive decline as we age.

Gingko Biloba

Ginkgo has a long history of use in treating blood disorders and memory issues. It is best known today as a way to potentially keep your memory sharp. Laboratory studies have shown that ginkgo improves blood circulation by opening up blood vessels and making blood less "sticky". It is also an antioxidant. For those reasons, ginkgo may improve vein and eye health. Ginkgo may also help treat dementia, including Alzheimer disease. It may also protect memory.
