Products Mentioned in Today’s Show
GPC Liquid – GPC (glycerophosphocholine) is a supportive nutrient for the brain, kidneys, muscles, testes and other organs, and is a building block for cell membrane phospholipids.** Without the presence of this nutrient in the brain, individuals could not think, sleep or remember. GPC has a naturally delicious, sweet taste on its own so no additional sweeteners were added to this product.
Optimum Memory – Optimum Memory provides vinpocetine and ginkgo biloba to support cerebral blood circulation, decrease excitotoxicity and scavenge damaging free radicals. In addition, vinpocetine has specifically been shown to inhibit phosphodiesterase, and therefore helps increase cerebrovascular blood flow and improve memory. Together with huperzine A, a potent acetylcholine sparing nutrient, Optimum Memory provides optimal dosages of three of the most well studied ingredients for targeted, multidimensional cognitive support.
Acetyl L-Carnitine – The acetyl group can serve as a metabolic source of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter, while the L-carnitine component carries fatty acids into mitochondria of nerve, heart, and muscle cells for use in energy production.† Other actions benefit membrane stability, production of nerve growth factor, and cerebral blood flow.†
