Our brains are the control room of our bodies as well as our minds, and supporting healthy brain functioning involves much more than just boosting memory. The brain is responsible for all of our cognition. It manages our learning, thinking, knowledge and judgement. Supporting cognitive health and brain function is critical to our quality of life, as they impact not only memory loss, but also stress and anxiety management, physical activity and sleep.
The brain relies on communication between neurons to do its work, in mental functions and in initiating and controlling the body’s physical activity. Magnesium, a signaling molecule, increases synaptic density, facilitating greater communication between neurons. Its contributions to mental health are clear, as healthy levels of magnesium are associated with a positive mood a greater tolerance to stress. Although magnesium is available in many foods, soil degradation and poor food choices result in magnesium deficiencies in the majority of the population.
Magnesium is the foundation of brain supplements. Coupling magnesium with threonate, which naturally occurs in cerebral-spinal fluid, increases the uptake of magnesium and makes it more available to the synapses and neurons. Magtein™ (Magnesium L-Threonate), included in REDD Remedies’ Brain Awakening, is an innovative magnesium compound shown to effectively raise the brain’s magnesium levels and to facilitate short and long-term memory.
Brain Awakening is a simple, deliberate and precise formula based on a synergy of this compound, made possible through innovative modern science, along with two herbs that have been used for millennia as health-inducing foods in ancient healing traditions. Amla berry, the oldest Ayurvedic botanical, is known as the Mother Herb in the Ayuvedic tradition. Lion’s Mane has been used in Asian culinary and healing traditions for over 4,000 years.
Amla Berry is a “rasayana” in Ayurvedic medicine. It is a tonic, which is often eaten daily to promote strength and immunity from disease. With adaptogen-like qualities, it has a positive effect on many organs and systems, including cardio, liver, neuro and immune. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is known as a cascading antioxidant, up to 10 times more potent than the antioxidants in vitamin C. It helps protect the structural integrity of neurons found in the brain.
Lion’s Mane is the fruiting body of a mushroom that grows on old oak trees. Said to have the taste and texture of crab or lobster, its history of culinary use dates back 5,000 years. It contains two sets of compounds (hericenones and erinacines) that induce biosynthesis of nerve growth factor. NGF is a huge molecule that has trouble passing through the blood-brain barrier. But the compounds in Lion’s Mane are small; they can pass that barrier and support the neurons’ natural abilities to produce neuropeptides.
Lions Mane supports the structure and function of neurons. Amla Berries help protect neurons. Magtein supports synaptic density and effective neuron communications.
Together, they provide natural supplement support for efficient cognitive function through REDD Remedies’ Brain Awakening.
