Executive Functions are complex cognitive processes necessary for planning, organizing, guiding, revising, regulating, and evaluating behavior necessary to adapt effectively to the environment and to achieve goals (Bauermeister, 2008). The term executive functions refers to the higher-level cognitive skills you use to control and coordinate your other cognitive abilities and behaviors. The term is a business metaphor, suggesting that your executive functions are akin to the chief executive that monitors all of the different departments so that the company can move forward as efficiently and effectively as possible. How we organize our lives, how we plan and how we then execute those plans is largely guided by our executive system. Executive functions can be divided into organizational and regulatory abilities:
Organization – attention, planning, sequencing, problem-solving, working memory, cognitive flexibility, abstract thinking, rule acquisition, selecting relevant sensory information
Regulation – initiation of action, self-control, emotional regulation, monitoring internal and external stimuli, initiating and inhibiting context-specific behavior, moral reasoning, decision-making
Memory Health® is clinically proven to improve executive functions in both diseased and healthy brains. Most importantly, it does so with an all-natural, patented formula that has zero negative side effects; The formula consists of a combination of plant-based nutrients called carotenoids (Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin), Omega-3s, and Natural Vitamin E. This powerful combination of ingredients has remarkable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to support brain health and improve executive function. In fact, studies show that individuals with high concentrations of carotenoids and omega-3s in their brain demonstrate much better executive functions, and that patients with Alzheimer's disease are actually deficient in these nutrients.
