Supports the Memory Centre
Did you know that brain function peaks at the age of 25 and begins to decline as early as age 45; 15 years earlier than what scientists previously believed? In fact, aging is the greatest risk factor for brain deterioration. Aging, combined with a number of damaging lifestyle factors, promotes a build-up of toxic proteins, neuron signaling problems and a reduction in the size of the hippocampus, a structure in the brain involved in memory and learning. The result is a condition known as AAMI (Age Associated Memory Impairment); a state of normal functioning with signs of memory loss and altered cognitive abilities. Exacerbated brain deterioration after this point can lead to more serious conditions, but at this stage, future decline is preventable.
Active Mind™ contains homotaurine, an amino acid naturally found in algae. Homotaurine has been studied for over 15 years in clinical trials with over 2000 Alzheimer’s patients and is considered a breakthrough in cognitive protection. Active Mind™ has been scientifically proven to protect the hippocampus from deterioration. In addition, it prevents the accumulation of toxic proteins which are responsible for neuron death and cognitive decline. In clinical studies, Active Mind™ reduced the degradation of the hippocampus by 68%. This led to improvements in memory, comprehension and verbal skills in Alzheimer’s subjects.
Active Mind™ is ideal for those who have noticed mild memory loss such as forgetting names and phone numbers, experienced cognitive decline with age and also for those who want to prevent future cognitive impairment.
DISCUSSION: Homotaurine has been investigated in Phase III Clinical Studies. Active Mind™ can help reduce atrophy (shrinking) of the hippocampus, the specific area of the brain involved in memory and learning. Shrinkage can occur with the buildup of a toxic protein called beta-amyloid that causes neurons to malfunction and die. This effect has not been studied in a healthy population. This product is not intended to treat, prevent, or reduce the risk of any specific diseases.
|Serving Size: 1 Capsule||Amount Per Serving|
|Homotaurine (3-amino-1-propanesulfonic acid)||50 mg|
|Non-medicinal ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose sodium stearyl fumarate. Capsule: hypromellose, gellan gum.|
ADULT DOSAGE: Take 2 capsules twice daily with a meal, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. May start with 1 capsule at bedtime for one week and then progress to 1 capsule twice daily for an additional week to reduce the chance of nausea. Use for a minimum of 6 months for beneficial effects.
CAUTION: Some people may experience nausea, weight loss, dizziness, or fainting. Do not exceed recommended daily dose as you may experience more of these symptoms. If you experience any weight loss, drowsiness, dizziness, fainting, persistent nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, consult a health care practitioner. Consumption of homotaurine with alcohol, other medications and/or natural health products with sedative properties is not recommended. Exercise caution if operating heavy machinery, driving a motor vehicle or involved in activities requiring mental alertness. Discontinue use if you experience any confusion or any unexpected memory loss. Do not use if you are diagnosed with stomach ulcers or low blood pressure or if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding. Consult a health care practitioner if you have any questions.
