The brain is an incredibly complex organ, with many facets that we don’t yet understand - “unsolved mysteries,” as some scientists say. So if you’re looking for a supplement for memory enhancement, how do you know which option is best for you?
“We humans have approximately 86 billion neurons in our brains, woven together by an estimated 100 trillion connections, or synapses. It’s a daunting task to understand the details of how those cells work, let alone how they come together to make up our sensory systems, our behavior, our consciousness.” - The Allen Institute for Brain Science.
Fortunately, for the purposes of measuring the effects of brain health supplementation, we can rely on peer-reviewed scientific research using double-blind placebo-controlled studies.
First things first, you need to know that a supplement for memory simply cannot compensate for an unhealthy lifestyle. The simple habits shown below will help support your overall health and your brain’s health and thereby, help support your memory.
In fact, in just one study, 59 healthy people between the ages of 18 and 25 took a placebo or a supplement containing lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin every day. Doctors measured changes in levels of carotenoids in the macula of the eye, gave participants psychological stress and anxiety tests, and measured levels of cortisol, the fight-or-flight hormone released by the adrenal glands. According to the Journal of Dietary Supplements, “After six and 12 months, while the placebo group had not improved, both low and high-dose carotenoid groups had less psychological stress, better emotional and physical health, and lower cortisol levels.”
Memory Health® uses an all-natural, patented formula of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin, combined with Omega-3s (DHA and EPA) and Natural Vitamin E. It’s the only brain supplement currently on the market to receive a patent for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
