Brain Health Supplements

(See Supplements Under Text)

The human brain has remarkable capacity for memory and activity (Intellectual stimulation), but it needs a constant flow of oxygen (exercise) and specific nutrients to keep it functioning properly for a lifetime.

When people think about staying fit, they generally think from the neck down. But the health of your brain plays a critical role in almost everything you do: thinking, feeling, remembering, working, playing — and even sleeping.

Healthy Brain Choices:


  • Stay physically active
  • Adopt a brain-healthy diet
  • Remain socially active
  • Stay mentally active

    Supplements that support your brain:


  • Neural Transmitters
  • Omega-3's (Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
  • Antioxidants
  • Vitamin E
  • Good Blood Flow/Circulation
  • Stabilize glucose (blood sugar)


    Along with dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine, acetylcholine is a neural transmitter. Some substances act as mediators and others, including acetylcholine, simulate or active the next nerve cell as impulses pass down the a nerve. Once it has performed this action by passing across the synapse (neural junction between two nerve cells) it is broken down by an enzyme called acetylcholine esterase into an acetyl group and choline. Acetylcholine also passes across the neural muscular junction, similar to the synapse between neurons (nerve cells) and also between nerve endings and muscle cells stimulating them and thus causing your muscles to move.

    Acetylcholine is also involved in memory and learning and is in particularly short supply in people with Alzheimer's disease. A recently released drug helps Alzheimers sufferers by inhibiting the action of acetylcholine esterase.

    Phosphatidylserine is used for Alzheimer's disease, age-related decline in mental function, improving thinking skills in young people, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, preventing exercise-induced stress, and improving athletic performance.

    How does it work?

    Phosphatidylserine is an important chemical with widespread functions in the body. It is part of the cell structure and is key in the maintenance of cellular function, especially in the brain.


     Omega-3's and Your Memory
    If there weren’t already enough health benefits to encourage you to add more Omega-3 to your diet, then perhaps the findings of a recent study published in the American Academy of Neurology’s journal “Neurology” will do it. The study has found that not getting enough Omega-3s in your diet is responsible for problems related to your memory and thinking.

    About the Study
    The study was conducted at the Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research and the Division of Geriatrics, University of California in Los Angeles. The researchers used 1,575 people of an average age of 67 who were free of dementia. They were given tests that measured their mental function as well as their body mass, along with MRI brain scans and tests to measure the amount of omega-3 fatty acids levels found in their red blood cells.

    What they found was that the participants who had the lowest DHA levels had lower brain volume than the participants whose DHA levels were higher (DHA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid). The same was found for those who had the lowest omega-3 fatty acid levels, who went on to score lower on visual memory tests, as well as executive function tests such as those for problem solving, abstract thinking, and multi-tasking. They also noted that the participants with low omega-3 levels had brains that functioned as though they were two years older; showing that not getting enough omega-3s causes your brain to age faster.

    What Omega-3 Will Do For Your Brain and Body
    Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to positively impact your health on several different levels. Along with improving your memory and brain function, omega-3s have also been shown to lower the risk of heart disease and heart attack because of their ability to lower cholesterol, improve circulation, and reduce blood pressure.

    Omega-3s are also known to lower the risk of certain cancers, including prostate, breast, and colon cancer. There have also been studies into the effects of omega-3 fish oils on rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases, improved immune health, and even its impact on psychological disorders. Omega-3s are also crucial in your body’s metabolism process and have been shown to lessen wrinkles and the signs of aging on the skin.


    Glycerophosphocholine (pronounced gli-sero-fos-fo-ko-lean) or GPC is a
    small nutrient molecule with a large place in the scheme of life. Its centrality
    to human life is suggested by its abundance in mother’s milk.

    GPC’s biochemical centrality in our cell processes becomes physiologically
    amplified into tissue growth and renewal, organ vitality, reproduction, and
    mind-body integration. GPC appears to be that rare nutrient which supports
    the mind, the body and their functional integration for the individual’s
    ongoing survival.

    At least twenty-three (23) clinical trials have been completed using GPC. All
    have had clinically meaningful positive outcomes. GPC significantly benefits
    attention, mental focus, recall, and other higher mental functions (cognition),
    including in young healthy subjects.3,4 GPC offers marked benefit for
    individuals with memory decline, whether linked to poor brain circulation or
    of the Alzheimer’s type, as asserted in a meta-analysis by the veteran clinician
    Lucilla Parnetti.5 It has proven uniquely valuable for brain recovery
    following stroke or other circulatory injury.6-8 Last but not least, preliminary
    findings indicate GPC can revitalize master hormone functions in the elderly.


    Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is one of the oldest living tree species and its leaves are among the most extensively studied herbs in use today. In Europe and the United States, ginkgo supplements are among the best-selling herbal medications. It consistently ranks as a top medicine prescribed in France and Germany.

    Ginkgo has been used in traditional medicine to treat blood disorders and enhance memory. Scientific studies throughout the years have found evidence that supports these claims. Although not all studies agree, ginkgo may be help treat dementia (including Alzheimer's disease) and intermittent claudication, or poor circulation in the legs. It also shows promise for enhancing memory in older adults. Laboratory studies have shown that ginkgo improves blood circulation by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of blood platelets.

    Ginkgo leaves contain two types of chemicals (flavonoids and terpenoids) believed to have potent antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are substances that scavenge free radicals -- compounds in the body that damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Free radicals are believed to contribute to health problems including heart disease and cancer as well as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Antioxidants such as those found in ginkgo can help neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

    Super EPA Pro - Product Image

    Super EPA Pro

    Super EPA Pro (120) by Thorne Research

    Highly-concentrated EPA for maintenance of healthy lipid levels*

    • green technology - Supercritical Fluid Technology (CO2 extraction) for maximum EPA concentration
    • 650 mg EPA/100 mg DHA per gelcap
    • incomparable purity and quality you expect from Thorne
    • capsule size is about 20% smaller than equivalent competitor products
    • free of heavy metals, PCBs, and dioxins

    Product Information

    Studies demonstrate that the higher the concentration of EPA in a capsule, the more effective it is in maintaining healthy triglyceride levels.* Quite simply, it's what is NOT in the capsule that is key. For example, a typical 1,000 mg fish oil capsule might have 300-500 mg of omega-3s and 500-700 mg of other saturated and unsaturated fats per capsule - fats that can interfere with the efficacy of the omega-3s.

    Super EPA Pro is manufactured using Supercritical Fluid Technology, which utilizes low temperatures and standardized pressures. The result is a pure, highly-concentrated product containing 650 mg EPA and 100 mg DHA per softgel. The low temperatures used in the extraction process assure maintenance of molecular integrity. During the processing the product is manufactured under a nitrogen blanket to ensure the supercritical oil stays fresh throughout the process, preventing oxidation of the oils.

    Super EPA Pro contains omega-3 oils from small, non-accumulating fish, harvested from pristine Peruvian waters. The fish oil is from a sustainable source, which is monitored closely by sonar buoys to determine how many fish are in a particular area in order to prevent depletion of the population. The result is the most sustainable source of wild fish in the marketplace.
