Description: Cogni-flex 60c is available by Douglas Laboratories.
A Dietary Supplement
provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a unique combination of nutrients
and herbs (huperzine A, Ginkgo biloba, phosphatidyl serine, and
acetyl-Lcarnitine) which work in concert to maintain and enhance brain
and nervous system functions, including those involved in mental
alertness, clarity, and memory retention. These positive effects of the
four components of Cogni-flex™ upon structure and function of the
nervous system are supported by numerous scientific/clinical studies
The four nutrients in Cogni-flex™
support the structure and function of cognitive processes in several
ways. They support neurotransmitter metabolism, enhance vascular
circulation to the brain, and help maintain structure and function of
nerve cell membranes. Huperzine A: An extract of the Chinese club moss,
Huperzia serrata, huperzine A has been used in Chinese medicine for
centuries. It is an effective inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase, the
enzyme that degrades acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter important for
normal memory and learning function.
Huperzine A may help
maintain cognitive function that has been degraded by a reduction in
the brain’s functional levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Ginkgo biloba: Flavonoid compounds and terpene lactones in the ginkgo
leaf help regulate the structural tone and elasticity of arteries and
capillaries. As powerful antioxidants, the ginkgo flavonoids counteract
the deleterious actions of free radical accumulation which impairs
functional cellular energy production and nerve transmission. Ginkgo
biloba extract is also reported to inhibit the tendency of red blood
cells to stick together (“clumping”), thereby enhancing the functional
fluidity of the blood.
Improving the functional circulation to
the brain and other parts of the body allows for better oxygen and
glucose uptake, with subsequent enhancement of memory and mental
functions. Phosphatidylserine: This phospholipid, found in high
concentrations in the nervous system, helps maintain functional
fluidity of nerve cell membranes, thus providing for optimal transport
of nutrients and other compounds across the cell membrane. It is also
used in the repair and regeneration of nerve cells. Phosphatidylserine
also appears to help the body counterbalance excessive release of
adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), adrenaline, and cortisol which are
released in response to stress.
acetylated high energy ester of the amino acid L-carnitine contributes
its acetyl group to the production of acetylcholine, the primary
neurotransmitter for memory and thought. The enzyme that makes
acetylcholine from acetyl groups and choline is choline acetyl
transferase. The activity of this important enzyme has a tendency to
decline with age, causing low acetylcholine levels which in turn are
thought to contribute to the impairment of brain function that is
associated with aging. Research has also found that acetyl-L-carnitine
is active in optimizing the functioning of cerebral blood flow, as well
as of nerve cell membranes.
