    Thorne Research Memoractiv - 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    Thorne Research has created a comprehensive, synergistic blend of the most widely studied supplements that can promote brain health in one memory-enhancing product. The ingredients in Memoractiv support cognitive function via a variety of mechanisms of action and are provided in a convenient combination formula. Now, with a new improved formula. Ginkgo biloba in Memoractiv is now being provided as a Ginkgo phytosome (Virtiva®) – Ginkgo bound to phosphatidylserine. A double-blind trial demonstrated greater cognitive support from Virtiva (Ginkgo-phosphatidylserine complex) than with the same amount of Ginkgo in a standardized extract or Ginkgo bound to phosphatidylcholine. Ginkgo promotes mental alertness, reaction time, memory, and cognition. Many studies have shown Ginkgo promotes mental functioning in individuals with cognitive decline related to aging. Double-blind trials of phosphatidylserine have shown enhanced learning and recall capabilities in older and middle-aged subjects with cognitive decline related to aging. In addition to the phosphatidylserine in Virtiva, Memoractiv also contains 70 mg phosphatidylserine isolate per serving (2 capsules).

    Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) helps support cognitive health. In one double-blind trial conducted with former alcoholics ages 30-60 with cognitive decline, 2 g ALC daily for three months enhanced memory, visuo-spatial capacity, and vocabulary recall. In controlled trials, ALC has improved cooperation, sociability, and attention to personal appearance in elderly subjects.

    An Ayurvedic herb, Bacopa monnieri is neuroprotective and has been shown to support memory and learning. Bacopa results in a relaxed-yet-focused effect by enhancing levels of the inhibitory (relaxing) neurotransmitter GABA.

    Vinpocetine supports cerebral circulation and oxygen utilization, which can result in improved cognitive function. In double-blind trials conducted with subjects experiencing cognitive decline, vinpocetine benefited speech, language, memory, learning, and other measures of cognitive performance.

    • contains the best-researched nutrients and botanicals for promoting brain function
    • enhances memory, learning, and focus
    • without preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents
    • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability

    Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. Recommends:
    As you can tell from the name of the product it is formulated to enhance brain function, especially our memory as we age. These structural and degenerative changes can be due to nutrient deficiencies, free-radical damage, environmental toxins, recreational and pharmaceutical drugs, emotional stress, junk food, alcohol, and tobacco. Over time these have a cumulative effect and memory and concentration start to decline. Memoractiv is designed as a protective agent, although along with Dr. Michael Lebowitz certainly recommends ceasing bad lifestyle choices. Memoractiv contains:

    1. Phosphatidylserine isolate - this nutrient helps optimize cognitive function in the aging brain and has a positive influence on the hypothalamic-pituitary axis
    2. Ginkgo - a well-known herb to enhance memory, reaction time, and cognition, probably due to its antioxidant effects
    3. Acetyl-L-Carnitine - prevents oxidative damage and enhances cholinergic neurotransmission. ALC readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, and it also acts as an adrenal adaptogen
    4. Bacopa monniera extract - an Ayurvedic antioxidant that improves learning and enhances memory
    5. Vinpocetine - enhances cerebral circulation and oxygen utilization. It also enhances cognitive performance by allowing the brain to function in situations of low oxygen tension.

    Thorne Research's Mission
    At Thorne Research, their mission is to enhance the health and well-being of people by providing superior dietary supplements that have the highest level of quality and purity – thereby creating the most respected and valued company in the dietary supplement industry.

    The Thorne Difference.
    For more than 25 years, Thorne has relentlessly pursued the highest possible quality and bioavailability in dietary supplements. At Thorne, they actually manufacture products that they sell – a key difference that allows Thorne to control every aspect of the manufacturing process and ensure that every Thorne product is in pure, completely hypoallergenic form, and without the common additives, flowing agents, and binders used throughout the industry.

    A few other companies have tried to do what Thorne does, and many others claim to have the same philosophy and quality, but nobody has been able to duplicate what Thorne's clients call "Thorne Quality." Thorne has changed the industry in many ways over the past two decades, and they continue to raise the bar and set new standards in product formulation, raw material purity, manufacturing, and quality control.

    Thorne's Commitment to Purity
    Practitioners have become accustomed to seeing the vague "We use only the purest ingredients" in the promotional materials of almost every dietary supplement company. Perhaps these companies truly believe that. Perhaps they don't know any better. Nevertheless, Thorne Research, for more than 25 years, has been the standard by which companies in the industry are judged for product purity. Practitioners rely on Thorne as the company they trust for their extremely allergic, chemically sensitive, and immune-compromised patients.

    Purity Takes Extra Effort
    For example, instead of purchasing prediluted vitamin D, as other companies do, Thorne performs its own dilution to avoid detrimental ingredients, such as the preservatives or lactose that are found in many commercially available dilutions. Why must vitamin D be diluted? Because in its pure form, it is too concentrated to safely blend into a vitamin product. Pure vitamin D is 40 MILLION International Units (IU) per gram. The RDA for adults is 600-800 IU per day. To ensure proper mixing, it must be made into a dilute powder that flows and does not lose potency. So, unlike companies that use prediluted vitamin D that contains unacceptable excipients and preservatives, at Thorne, pure pharmaceutical vitamin D is first blended with pure mixed tocopherol vitamin E, and the resultant stable vitamin D is then blended with hypoallergenic cellulose powder. The final powder is blended in a large tumble blender and subsequently analyzed. Not only is the final product stable; it is also hypoallergenic and can be mixed homogeneously and at a safe level with other powders. Just as with vitamin D, Thorne utilizes similar processes for other raw materials, such as vitamin K, leaving it to other companies to purchase commercially available raw materials filled with unacceptable ingredients and preservatives.

    Ingredients You Don't Want
    Magnesium Stearate: Good for speed-hungry encapsulating machines. Not necessarily good for you. Manufacturing encapsulated dietary supplements isn't easy. Pure powdered ingredients are difficult to mix because they are either extremely dry, sticky with botanical oils, or attract unwanted moisture. So most manufacturers add magnesium stearate and other agents such as lactose and dextrose to make the powder flow quickly and easily through their high-volume machines. Problem is, these additives may compromise the bioavailability of the nutrients in the supplement, and might cause allergenic problems. At Thorne, they take a different approach.

    Thorne will never utilize large fatty acid excipients in its manufacturing processes – ingredients such as magnesium stearate or stearic acid. These excipients are utilized as flowing agents to ensure that maximum productivity is obtained from capsuling and tableting machines. There are documented detrimental effects directly attributed to long chain fatty acids utilized as manufacturing flowing agents. Every qualified pharmaceutical compounder recognizes that large fatty acids, such as magnesium stearate, can interfere with product dissolution and influence absorption. Virtually all companies, because of the economic impact, ignore this data. As with most industries, the bottom line dictates the level of quality. The dietary supplement industry has one exception: Thorne Research, the company that does not compromise. Nevertheless, if a company cannot manufacture products without using detrimental excipients, they should not allude to being either "hypoallergenic" or "pure."

    The Bottom Line?
    Thorne is the only hypoallergenic dietary supplement manufacturer with the highest degree of purity that you – and your most severely allergic, chemically sensitive, and immune-compromised patients – can truly trust.

    Quality Ingredients: A Higher Standard
    At Thorne, they are committed to setting a higher standard of quality when it comes to ingredients. To produce their truly hypoallergenic encapsulated supplements, Thorne uses only the purest and finest ingredients available.

    Every manufacturer has two basic options when purchasing raw materials: purchase either truly pure raw materials, or purchase raw materials to which substances have been added to facilitate manufacturing. This fundamental dilemma translates to these very typical questions: "Do I purchase pure vitamin C or vitamin C with additives?" "Do I purchase pure B vitamins or coated B vitamins for taste masking?" "Do I purchase pure enzymes such as pancreatin, pepsin, and bromelain or enzymes diluted with lactose?"

    There are few commercial sources for vitamins B12, D, K, or biotin that are not diluted with substances such as lactose, cornstarch, and preservatives such as BHT. That's why Thorne developed methods that allow them to use pure, undiluted sources of these nutrients – and many others. It's just one more example that when it comes to quality, what everyone else accepts as an industry standard isn't good enough. While some companies say they are raising their standards....at Thorne they set them.
