Mental Decline - inevitable part of aging?Memories are recollections that establish who we are and to some extent define our future path. As we age, most of us are subject to forgetfulness. Usually we make allowances for this decline but as time passes it becomes more noticeable and frequently embarrassing.
It has long been thought that those who stay active and mentally alert can significantly delay the natural age-related decline in memory and in this way preventing mental decline. It is now recognized that the gradual loss of nerve cells and connections within the brain begins at age six, the age at which they are at their maximum. This suggests that the aging process in relation to memory commences at that age. When we get to our sixties the cumulative affect can become noticeable, in the form of age related memory loss. Any loss of memory, no matter how mild, can be profoundly disturbing!
It is now recognized that there is a slow loss over time of nerve cells and connections in the brain commencing at age six, the age at which they are their maximum. This would suggest that the aging process in relation to memory commences at that age. When we get to our sixties the situation begins to look rather bleak. Hence the importance of preventing mental decline.
It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of memory to ancient cultures where all learning was passed down the generations by word of mouth without the benefit of written language. For more than 3000 years the ancients of India have been using a specific plant extract that was recognized for its beneficial influence upon memory and in preventing mental decline. The SomaLife Scientific Team are justifiable proud to now have acquired the rights to that specific plant extract which, by utilizing the most current available clinical research has now been enhanced and developed as SomaLife Memory.
The SomaLife Memory formulation contains a unique standardized extract of Bacopa Monniera, commonly known as Brahmi specifically developed by the internationally renowned Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI), in India. Brahmi is a creeping plant that is found in damp marshy regions and is extensively used in both India and Japan.
Preventing Mental Decline
Of all Indian herbs, Brahmi has been throughout history the premier herb for memory. Although practitioners and their patients have known of Brahmi for thousands of years it was the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI), through formal scientific studies, that determined a precise extraction process and helped understand exactly how it works.
Preventing Mental Decline - How does it work?The CDRI discovered that Brahmi contained two main active molecules. The molecules are Bacosides A & B. They have, in extensive clinical research and trials over the past 50 years, demonstrated a strong improvement in helping ease mild age related memory loss and concentration difficulties. * CDRI researchers have found that Bacosides A &B supported this by increasing protein kinase activity and significantly enhancing new protein synthesis, particularly in brain cells in the regions of the brain connected with memory. *
SomaLife Memory also contains Phosphatidylserine and Phosphatidylcholine, two compounds, known as phospholipids that are essential components in all cells and cell membranes and are vital to brain structure and function. * These phospholipids are abundant in the brain, and are intricately involved in relaying chemical messages between the cells. * When supplemented orally, both are rapidly absorbed where they have positive effects on brain cell structure and metabolism, enhancing the function of neuronal membranes, and cerebra cell metabolism. *
Also contained in SomaLife Memory is a standardized Gingko Biloba extract, which has been used by Chinese herbalists for at least 5000 years in their efforts of preventing mental decline. At a cellular level Ginkgo’s antioxidant effects are attributed mainly to the flavanoids present in the extract. * It has been scientifically formulated to work synergistically with the other three ingredients. Gingko Biloba has been shown to increase blood flow to the brain. *
