Brain Health

A New Generation of Cold Water Dispersible and Soluble Ingredients

Brain health refers to the overall state of our brain and its ability to perform cognitive functions such as thinking, learning, memory, and problem-solving. It encompasses both the physical and mental aspects of our brain, including its structure, function, and chemistry. Maintaining good brain health is important for overall well-being, as our brain plays a critical role in regulating our emotions, behaviors, and physical responses.

Studies have shown that anandamide can help to stimulate the growth of new brain cells in a process called neurogenesis. This is important for maintaining brain health and may help to improve memory and cognitive function. Anandamide has also been shown to have neuroprotective effects, helping to protect the brain against damage from oxidative stress, inflammation, and other harmful processes. Additionally, anandamide has been found to improve memory consolidation, which is the process by which memories are transferred from short-term to long-term storage. This may be due to its effects on the hippocampus, a region of the brain that is important for memory formation and recall.

Gotu kola, also known as Centella asiatica, is a herb commonly used in traditional medicine systems like Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. It has been widely recognized for its potential benefits on brain health. Gotu kola is believed to improve cognitive function, memory, and concentration by enhancing blood circulation to the brain, increasing the levels of neurotransmitters, and reducing oxidative stress. Research suggests that gotu kola may have a positive impact on the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related cognitive decline. Moreover, it has been found to have a calming effect on the nervous system, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.*

Recent studies suggest that oleanolic acid has potential neuroprotective properties and may have positive effects on brain health. It has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects that may help to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which are associated with many neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, oleanolic acid has been shown to enhance learning and memory in animal studies by increasing the levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that plays a key role in promoting the growth and survival of neurons.*

Research suggests that piperine may have neuroprotective properties and could improve cognitive function. It has been found to increase the levels of certain neurotransmitters, including dopamine and serotonin, which play a key role in regulating mood, memory, and attention. Moreover, piperine has been shown to enhance the bioavailability of other compounds, such as curcumin, which is a potent antioxidant with potential neuroprotective effects. By increasing the bioavailability of curcumin, piperine may enhance its effects on brain health. Piperine has also been found to have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help to reduce the risk of neurological disorders that are associated with chronic inflammation, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.*

Research suggests that ursolic acid may have neuroprotective properties and could improve cognitive function. It has been found to enhance the growth and survival of neurons and to protect against oxidative stress and inflammation, which are associated with many neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Ursolic acid has also been found to enhance the levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that plays a key role in promoting the growth and survival of neurons. Moreover, ursolic acid has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help to reduce the risk of neurological disorders that are associated with chronic inflammation.*
