Within 20 years an astounding 71 million aging individuals will be at risk for cognitive problems. Fortunately, new research indicates that some of the factors behind this alarming trend may lie within your control. The key is to maintain a steady supply of special nutrients clinically shown to support brain health as you age. Age-related cognitive decline or "senior moments" are in store for anyone who lives long enough. But taking precautionary measures now can yield huge neurological health dividends later.
A healthy adult brain has about 100 billion nerve cells. Each cell requires specific dietary support for optimum performance. But most aging individuals unwittingly starve their brains of these critical nutrients with a heart-healthy diet deficient in eggs, red meat and cheeses, the very foods that contain these vital brain-boosting nutrient.
Life Extension Cognitex Basics contains two key compounds that may not be obtained in optimal amounts when following a healthy diet, including L-alpha glyceryl phosphoryl choline (Alpha-GPC), a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It may be converted to phosphatidylcholine after oral ingestion, and is naturally present in most every cell membrane in the body. A decline in acetylcholine levels coincides with advancing age and is a hallmark of neurodegeneration.
Life Extension Cognitex Basics also provides Alpha-GPC as a crucial building block for the production of acetylcholine in the brain. Alpha-GPC may help with proper acetylcholine function, muscle control, sleep, and cognition. It plays a key role in both the synthesis and the catabolic recycling of phospholipids. Alpha-GPC may help enhance phospholipid synthesis, including synthesis of the phosphoinositides available for signal transduction at central nervous system level.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a crucial building block in the brain, and brain tissues are especially rich in this nutrient. However, aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body including brain cells, which can lead to cognitive decline. Phosphatidylserine is essential in helping brain neurons support memory and in promoting healthy nerve cell division and repair. Research shows it benefits people of all ages, and may help to reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive dysfunction in the elderly.
