    American Biologics - Ultra Brain Power - 90 Capsules

    American Biologics Brain Power is a science-based formulation of nutrients aimed at supporting the functions of the healthy brain, protecting against toxic damage, and slowing down age-related brain decline. American Biologics Ultra Brain Power formulation provides, in highly bioavailable forms, nutrients clinically proven to support memory, concentration and the other higher brain functions. American Biologics Ultra Brain Power operates through diverse mechanisms, facilitating brain oxygenation, metabolism, circuit integration, and antioxidant defense. The constituents of American Biologics Ultra Brain Power are PhosphatidylSerine (PS), PhosphatidylCholine (PC), PhosphatidylEthanolamine (PE), PhosphatidylInositol (PI), Ginkgo Biloba Standardized Extract (as Phytosomes), Taurine, L-Glutamine, L-Glycine, Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin), and Folic Acid.

    PhosphatidylSerine (PS)
    This is a phospholipid substance which is a building block for the brain's approximately 100 billion nerve cells. Of the nutrients proven most beneficial to the brain, PS is the most impressive for its degree of benefits and its impeccable safety record. More than 60 human studies, including 18 double-blind trials, affirm diverse benefits of PS for memory, learning, concentration, word recall, and other cognitive measures in the middle-aged and elderly. PS is extremely safe and well tolerated very likely because it is an orthomolecule. PS is ubiquitous, present in all cells. In humans, PS is particularly abundant in the brain and in the membranes of the brain cells. The vast majority of all life activities occur on and in the membrane system of cells. Membranes are thin, double molecular layers which provide a vast surface area on which the majority of energy exchanges and metabolic activities occur. The foundation of all cell membranes is a double layer of phospholipids, a class of complex biomolecules that includes PS. Clinically, PS is highly versatile as a dietary supplement. It consistently improves mood, and has relieved symptoms of anxiety and depression in elderly women. PS improved adaptability to stress in the elderly by revitalizing the HPAA (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis). In older men, PS partially restores TSH and prolactin secretion (hormone rhythms that decompensate with additionally advancing age). PS can benefit more than the elderly. In young healthy men, subjected to strenuous exercise, PS reduced circulating stress hormones and residual muscle soreness. PS also benefited children with attention and learning deficits, as suggested from two pilot trial studies.

    PhosphatidylCholine (PC)
    This is a phospholipid related to PS. It is a nerve cell membrane building block, as well as the body's foremost biochemical reservoir of choline, a precursor for acetylcholine. Both PC and choline have been tested in numerous trials for memory enhancement, but with limited success. Anecdotal reports from individualized clinical application of PC suggest some subjects may experience a benefit. PC is therefore included in the formulation, with additional expectation that it will further enhance the benefits afforded by PS. Choline derived from PC has another important role, distinct from its role as an acetylcholine precursor. Choline is an efficient source of metabolic methyl, with each molecule capable of supplying three methyl groups. These methyls can enter the "one-carbon cycle" to help recycle homocysteine, regulate cell division and renewal, and facilitate the recycling of the monoamine chemical transmitters such as adrenaline, noradrenaline, and serotonin.

    PhosphatidylEthanolamine (PE), PhosphatidylInositol (PI)
    These are other phospholipids that are related to PS and are building blocks for nerve cell membranes. Both PE and PI are involved in the membrane-level events that render the nerve cells optimally functional: activation of the cell interior, energy generation, transmitter action at specific receptors, synaptic integration. Their presence is intended to help synergize the actions of PS and PC on brain performance.

    Ginkgo Biloba Standardized Extract, as Phytosomes
    Ginkgo biloba standardized extract is proven effective at increasing blood flow to the brain and providing antioxidant protection to the brain tissue. Meta-analysis of numerous small, double-blind clinical trials indicate ginkgo has benefits for concentration and memory, particularly in subjects with poor brain circulation. Careful assessment of the trials performed with ginkgo against Alzheimer's disease conclude that ginkgo can "buy time," through delaying (by six months, perhaps) the inexorable progression of dementia. These clinical benefits of ginkgo are rapidly explainable on the basis of the degree of protective benefits offered by the flavonglycosides and the terpenes. The ginkgo biloba phytosome preparation is prepared by linking the components of the standardized extract, together with emulsifying phospholipids (PC, mostly), in a molecular complex analogous to a lipid micella. In this complex, the ginkgo constituents are likely better absorbed across the intestinal lining, and their functional efficacy is enhanced. Milligram for milligram, the phytosomal ginkgo extract appears to be far more biologically effective than the plain standardized extract. An ancillary benefit from this phytosome preparation is that it likely supplies the brain with additional PC for membrane assembly or as a choline source.

    Taurine
    This amino acid is a potent antioxidant for the brain, and also has electronic homeostatic properties linked to its capacity to buffer intra-cellular calcium and magnesium as well as sodium and potassium. Taurine is abundant in electrically active tissues, and within the brain acts as a chemical transmitter in its own right. It also has dispersant properties and is an important digestive constituent of the bile, thereby contributing to the bioavailability of the other nutrients in this formulation. Taurine is not supplied by vegetarian diets, and is a conditionally essential nutrient for some populations. Supplementing with taurine helps conserve cysteine, which is an important precursor of glutathione, a very important intra-cellular antioxidant for the brain.

    L-Glutamine
    This amino acid is included in the formulation because it readily enters the brain where is can be utilized for energy and is a precursor to nerve transmitters. It is also a precursor for glutathione. Glutamine reserves can become rapidly depleted after surgery or other stress to the tissues. Glutamine is biochemically distinct from glutamate, which is not a good candidate for dietary supplementation since it has potential for excitotoxic damage to the brain.

    L-Glycine
    This amino acid participates in electronic buffering and chemical transmission in the brain. It also is a building block for glutathione.

    Vitamin B6, as Pyridoxine Hydrochloride
    This vitamin is required for a number of metabolic pathways that support optimal brain function. It is required for the conversion of homocysteine to cysteine (a precursor for the antioxidant glutathione). When given together with vitamin B12 and folic acid, which are also included in this formulation at meaningful intake levels, vitamin B6 completes the nutrient triad necessary to efficiently recycle homocysteine, which can interfere with the brain circulation and cause stroke. Deficiencies of these key metabolic cofactors are common among elderly populations.

    Vitamin B12, as Cyanocobalamin
    This vitamin is often found deficient in vegetarians and the elderly, and deficiency symptoms can mimic dementia: memory loss, personality and mood changes, fatigue.

    Folic Acid
    This vitamin-like substance is integral to the development and ongoing homeostasis of the nervous system. Deficiency during pregnancy can have disastrous consequences to the fetus. Folate deficiency is detected in 15-38% of adults diagnosed with depressive disorders, and may retard the clinical response to antidepressant therapy. Folate is essential to the transmethylation pathway involving the enzyme MAT (methionine adenosine transferase), lowered activity of which is linked to depression. This is the same pathway that recycles homocysteine to methionine.

    The rational clinical utility of American Biologics Ultra Brain Power is that first, it provides a clinically effective intake of the brain revitalizing nutrient phosphatidylserine (PS). Secondly, it supports the brain circulation by way of the proved flavonoid-terpene combination in ginkgo biloba extract. The formulation provides a combination of antioxidant factors to help protect the brain against the toxic hazards inherent in modern living, along with another rational avenue of protection in the form of the electronic buffers. Nutrients are also included that generally support brain energetics and help recycle the potentially hazardous homocysteine. This formulation is safe and likely beneficial for individuals of all ages.
