Vital Nutrients’ Vital Brain Powder is a unique combination of nutrients that work together to support mental performance and brain vitality, and help restore brain function. Vital Brain contains GlyceroPhosphoCholine (GPC), Acetyl L Carnitine HCl (ALC), Phosphatidyl Serine (PS), and Bacopa moneri. These powerful nutrients support mental focus, memory, concentration, positive outlook, and brain wellness.
GPC is an effective brain nutrient that supports brain health, memory, and cognitive function in all age groups.* GPC increases free choline levels in the bloodstream and is considered a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is active in both the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system.
The free choline produced by GPC can also be used in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a phospholipid that can cross the blood brain barrier and is depleted with age. Phosphatidylcholine is implemented in the production and release of acetylcholine. A study involving young and aged human volunteers suggests that GPC also has a positive impact on growth hormone secretion.*
ALC supports older adults by lessening typical fatigue in body and mind.* ALC is the acetylated form of the amino acid carnitine, which has a role in cellular metabolism and crosses the blood brain barrier through active transport. The physiologic and biochemical effects of ALC include increases in: acetylcholine levels, NGF (nerve growth factor) in the hippocampus, and NGF receptor synthesis.* ALC supplementation has been shown to slow natural declines of cognitive function and improve overall cognition.* Animal studies suggest that ALC offers neuroprotective and cytoprotective benefits.*
PS is a phospholipid component of cell membranes that is composed of two fatty acids molecules and the amino acid L-serine. PS is used in cellular turnover in the body and is linked to several aspects of brain function. Supplemental phosphatidylserine is derived from soy lecithin. PS supplementation promotes resistance to mental stress, improves cognitive functions following mentally stressful activities, and attenuates cortisol levels after exercise induced stress.* Human and animal studies also suggest PS supplementation can support improvements in learning, concentration, and memory.* An additional animal study proposes that PS may have a trophic effect on the brain.*
The FDA has issued the following qualified health claim for PS: “Consumption of phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of dementia in the elderly. Very limited and preliminary scientific research suggests that phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of dementia in the elderly. FDA concludes that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim.”
Bacopa moneri is an herb that has been used historically in Ayuvedic medicine to promote cognitive health. Research suggests that the antioxidants in bacopa reduce neuronal oxidative stress and inhibit acetylcholine degradation.* A human study of 54 healthy adults over age 65, proposed that bacopa supplementation safely enhances brain function in older adults.* Animal studies have explored bacopa as a possible neuroprotectant and cognitive enhancer.*
