Boost the Brain with Prevagen

We’ve all had those moments – what was that street number again? What did I need from the store? Where did I leave the keys?

Proudly distributed by Natural Meds, Prevagen is the first supplement shown to support healthy brain function, keep the mind sharp and allow you to think clearly. Prevagen assists brain function by utilising the protein apoaequorin (a protein originally derived from jellyfish) to supplement a specific protein in the brain that diminishes as we age.

Naturopath Michèle Wilton says: “Calcium is a good thing in our bones, but excess calcium in other areas of the body such as in the brain is not desirable. Our brains produce a protein that binds with excess calcium to prevent it from causing damage to the brain cells, however as we age (40 years plus) our brains capacity to make this protein diminishes leaving brain cells open to damage which potentially contributes to memory loss as we age. Prevagen provides this protein thereby increasing the number of brain cells protected which may in turn support our ability to focus and learn and support our memory. The beauty of this product is that there are no known contra-indications with medications as it doesn’t effect the viscosity of the blood like traditionally used herbs for memory which were often circulatory stimulants.”

The evidence of Prevagen on cognition was tested in clinical trial in March 2011. The three month study was conducted on 218 adults over the age of 40 who indicated mild memory concerns. Overall the participants in the study saw a significant positive change in several cognitive functions including; verbal learning, memory and delayed recall.

“Having your brain functioning at its peak is priceless - using Prevagen has the potential to result in several benefits including improved memory, word recall and learning with some people noticing discernable changes in days,” says Michèle.

It’s time to get rid of the frustration of forgetting the simple things.

Prevagen is available from all good health stores and pharmacies including Health 2000 & Hardy’s

RRP $98.20 for 30 tabs.
