Quincy Bioscience - Prevagen Professional 40 mg. - 30 Capsules
Quincy Bioscience Prevagen Professional is a professional strength dietary supplement for a healthier brain, sharper mind and clearer thinking. Prevagen helps improve memory by supplementing protective proteins the body loses in the aging process. This memory loss supplement contains the calcium-binding protein "apoaequorin", and provides brain cell protection for a healthier brain, sharper mind, and clearer thinking. Prevagen is a brain health supplement that improves memory in 30 days.
What is Prevagen?
Prevagen is a first-of-its-kind brain health supplement and is the only product to contain the active ingredient "apoaequorin" - a proven brain cell protector. First discovered in jellyfish, apoaequorin is now produced in a scientifically controlled process. This protein is nearly identical to the protective proteins made in the brain. Unlike many supplements whose ingredients can be consumed through eating a balanced diet, apoaequorin can only be obtained by takin Prevagen.
Most commonly reported benefits are:
- Overall improved mental clarity
- Clearer thinking
- Better concentration
- Greater ability to focus
Prevagen Improves Memory
People begin to experience a change in their memory and cognitive abilities as they age. Typically this starts in their forties. Everyone is unique and this change is different for everyone. Normal age-related memory problems can be things like short and long term memory problems, to foggy thinking, and changing speed in how they process information.
Have you noticed any of these changes?
- Walking into a room and forgetting why
- Problems remembering names and faces
- Forgetting where you put things
- Brain fatigue
- A foggy feeling
How does Prevagen work?
Prevagen was tested in a large double-blind, placebo-controlled study using computers to assess brain performance. 218 adults over 40 years old participated in the three month study. Prevagen significantly improved learning, short-term memory, and word recall.
Prevagen is a safe way to improve your memory
Developed by university researchers and scientists in Madison, WI, Prevagen has clinically shown to improve memory, focus and recall. Prevagen is very safe and extremely well-tolerated. Prevagen has no harmful side effects and there are no known contraindications with any supplements or medications.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Prevagen?
Prevagen (Pronounced: prev-uh-gen) is a new brain health supplement and functions unlike other brain or memory supplements. Prevagen's patented ingredient is a new use for a well-known protein called "apoaequorin" which was originally found in a certain species of jellyfish. Prevagen has been clinically tested and shown to improve mild memory problems that occur in aging.
What are the most commonly reported benefits of Prevagen?
How long will it take to feel results?
Daily use for 30-90 days is a reasonable length of time to experience results.
Can you take Prevagen with your current medication(s)?
While Prevagen has no known interactions it is always safe to talk with your doctor before beginning a new course of supplementation.
Are there any side effects with Prevagen?
Prevagen is safe and well-tolerated. Apoaequorin, the main ingredient in Prevagen, has been deemed safe enough to be a food ingredient.
What is Apoaequorin?
Apoaequorin (Pronounced: a-poe-e-kwôr-in) was discovered in the early 1960's when scientists wondered why a certain species of jellyfish glowed in the Puget Sound (Washington state). They discovered that when the protein apoaequorin, contained in the jellyfish, bound to calcium, a light was emitted. Today, because of apoaequorin's long-history and safety, it is a preferred research tool. Don't worry though, glowing is not a side-effect with Prevagen!
What is the role of jellyfish in Prevagen?
The main ingredient in Prevagen is "apoaequorin", which was originally discovered in jellyfish. Prevagen is now made in a controlled scientific process developed by university researchers and scientists in Madison, Wisconsin.
Are jellyfish harmed in the making of Prevagen?
No. The protein originally from the jellyfish is now grown in a safe and controlled manufacturing process.
Does Prevagen contain any allergens?
Prevagen is made without most common allergens (milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans). The active ingredient "apoaequorin" is a protein originally discovered in a jellyfish. A jellyfish is not truly a fish. People with fish allergies need not worry. Also, Prevagen is made with a vegetarian capsule.
Should you continue to take your vitamin and mineral supplements with Prevagen?
Absolutely. Prevagen is not meant to replace this type of supplementation. However, Prevagen works in a manner unlike any other supplements to help protect brain cells. Prevagen works in a complementary way to vitamin and mineral supplementation.
Nobel Prize in Chemisty
Apoaequorin (Pronounced: a-poe-e-kwôr-in) was first discovered in 1962 in glowing jellyfish. Turns out these proteins caused the jellyfish to glow when the proteins bound to calcium ions. They've learned a lot about how calcium functions in the body by using apoaequorin. The Princeton professor who discovered this protein and his colleagues who helped develop the research won the Nobel prize in 2008. Prevagen does not cause any glowing!
Quincy Bioscience and Apoeaequorin
Founded in June of 2004 and based in Madison, Wisconsin, Quincy Bioscience is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel technologies to address cognitive issues and other age-related health challenges. The core technology of the company is the innovative application of the calcium-binding protein Apoaequorin. Using this cutting edge protein originally discovered in jellyfish in the early 1960's, the company focuses on alleviating the consequences of impaired calcium homeostasis (the imbalance of calcium ions) which can lead to mild memory loss associated with aging.
From a Jellyfish
Apoaequorin originally comes from a species of jellyfish called Aequorea victoria - a bioluminescent organism with one of the simplest nervous systems. Quincy Bioscience is the first to utilize apoaequorin as a tool in the support of the brain in the human body. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2008 was awarded to researchers Osamu Shimomura, Martin Chalfie, and Roger Y. Tsien who discovered the luminescent jellyfish protein and advanced its usefulness in science with the Nobel committee calling the discovering of the glowing protein, "has become one of the most important tools used in contemporary bioscience." Their discovery and advancement made the work at Quincy Bioscience possible.
Who They Are
Quincy Bioscience is a Research-Based Biotechnology Company
Quincy Bioscience is a biotechnology company based in Madison, Wisconsin focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel technologies to support cognitive function and other normal health challenges such as mild memory problems associated with aging. Quincy Bioscience is set apart by its use of apoaequorin, a protein originally discovered in jellyfish, now patented by Quincy Bioscience for use in a variety of products to support cognitive function. Apoaequorin is manufactured in a cGMP compliant facility.
The discovery and development of Apoaequorin in 1962 as a calcium signaler earned the scientists responsible the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2008. Quincy Bioscience is building on this work through its novel use of the protein. Apoaequorin achieved self-affirmed GRAS status (generally recognized as safe) after an independent panel of expert scientists concluded that apoaequorin is safe for use in food products.
Prevagen is the company's flagship consumer brand containing apoaequorin which has shown in published studies to be safe and effective. A landmark double-blind and placebo-controlled trial demonstrated Prevagen improved short-term memory, learning, and delayed recall over 90 days.
As a result of the supplement's safety and effectiveness, Prevagen is now the number one selling brain support supplement in chain pharmacies across America according to Nielsen data (December, 2014). In 2012, the first year of eligibility, Quincy Bioscience ranked #398 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing private companies in the United States.
Prevagen is 100% Manufactured in the United States
Apoaequorin is no longer extracted from the jellyfish. The protein can be grown in a controlled scientific process. The end result is the exact composition of apoaequorin without any of the heavy metal pollution that jellyfish may be exposed to in the ocean. Additionally, all phases of production are conducted in the state of Wisconsin.
