Brain Protector™ combines four potent nerve and brain protecting ingredients that are designed to help you maintain healthy brain function as you age. These four ingredients—blueberry extract, mixed berry extract, r-alpha lipoic acid, and fisetin—all help to protect nerves from free radicals, while participating as part of a synergistic antioxidant network.*
Brain Protector™ is designed to: protect nerves and brain, help stabilize regulatory glial cells, enhance nerve communication and gene regulation, and improve memory and cognitive function.*
More than a decade of research at the USDA has shown that blueberries, strawberries, and even blackberries support cognitive health by protecting nerves. They have been found to help brain cells communicate with each other and improve the flexibility of nerve structures (plasticity).*
Berries help nerves tolerate stress, including the stress of toxic exposure. They also support the healthy function of glial cells in the brain, essential for optimum brain function. They even help glial cells activate their natural house cleaning operation, called autophagy. This is similar to the idea of taking out the trash. If trash is allowed to build up in brain cells, then healthy function may be compromised.*
The deep blue pigment of blueberries contains an antioxidant called anthocyanins, which help to neutralize free radicals. Blueberries are one of the very best fruits providing this type of antioxidant protection, especially protective to the brain.*
Brain Protector™ contains polyphenols from a wide variety of berries including blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and cranberries, along with grape and pomegranate extracts. This offers broad antioxidant nutritional support for brain health.*
R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
We added R-alpha lipoic acid (RALA) to this formulation because a variety of studies show that it helps rejuvenate normal antioxidant function in the brain and heart during aging. It is also shown to improve the efficiency of cellular energy production. Cellular energy is needed by all healthy functions in your body, including your brain. R-alpha lipoic acid is an active participant in your important antioxidant network. It is a small molecule and it is both fat and water soluble, enabling easy access to important brain cells where it can assist as a helpful brain protecting nutrient.*
We round out this potent formulation with a branded extract of the flavonoid fisetin, called Cognisetin®. This nutrient has demonstrated a high level of nerve and brain protection along with boosting memory and new nerve cell growth. It has been shown to enhance the gene function of nerve cells involved with memory. It has been issued a patent for enhancing memory. Like r-alpha lipoic acid, it acts synergistically with other antioxidants to help boost up the core antioxidant system within cells, known as glutathione.*
Protecting your nerves from various forms of stress is a top health priority. Your nerves regulate everything else in your body. Nutrition is a wonderful tool to support optimal nerve health. One way to do this is to take nutrients that directly boost neuro-protection. Brain Protector™ is our top choice for this type of nerve support.*
Brain Protector™ contains 300 mg of wild blueberry in each capsule. This provides an all-natural antioxidant and anthocyanin equivalent of 3/4 cup of fresh, wild blueberries!* Plus, it contains BerryVin™, a high antioxidant combination of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, cranberries, grape seed extract, and pomegranate.
