How Cerbrexum™ Works...
Growing older can be hard on our brains. As we age, our bodies tend to produce more cortisol. And rising levels of this “fight-or-flight” stress hormone negatively impact brain health. Especially the cerebral cortex and hippocampus – areas directly linked to memory, focus and concentration.
At the same time, our bodies also produce less acetylcholine, or ACh. This critical neurotransmitter carries signals from our brains throughout our bodies. Your brain uses ACh to control your muscles and autonomic nervous system, including your heart, breathing and digestion.
Acetylcholine also carries signals between regions of the brain. And it’s essential for communication between neurons in the hippocampus – your brain’s center of learning and memory. It even helps boost neuron activity, which in turn enhances both memory encoding and the performance of other neurotransmitters.
Unfortunately, our ACh levels decline as we grow older. It can start as early as age 45, but age isn’t the only factor. Increased stress can also trigger a breakdown of ACh. And as we lose ACh, our brains become less and less efficient.
However, cognitive decline is NOT inevitable.
Study after study shows that certain nutrients can help our brains work better. The hormone DHEA helps block cortisol receptors. And increasing our DHEA levels can help control high cortisol levels as well as the damage they inflict.
Similarly, the more acetylcholine we have, the more efficient our brains are. And the better we are at storing and recalling data in our memories. So reducing stress and increasing ACh can boost memory, focus and cognitive function.
That's how Cerbrexum™ can help. Each daily dose is bursting with FOUR powerful brain-boosting nutrients that can help reduce stress, raise DHEA and ACH levels, and more.
Brain Booster #1: Ashwagandha
Ashwagandha is renowned for its ability to balance, revitalize, rejuvenate, and energize. Ayurvedic practitioners have used it for thousands of years to reverse the cognitive effects of stress and aging. And modern science shows Ashwagandha not only works, but works extremely well.
For instance, one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study looked at the potential benefits of Sensoril®, a multi-patented Ashwagandha extract. And the results were astounding. It found a 250 mg/day dose reduced forgetfulness by 57.1%, and improved focus by 75.8%!vii
How did Sensoril® achieve these impressive results?
In a nutshell, Ashwagandha is an adaptogen. It helps the body resist negative stresses and return to a state of balance, or homeostasis. And it does this partly by using withanolide bioactives to lower cortisol levels and increase serum DHEA.
Sensoril® is standardized to contain at least 8% withanolides. As a result, it boosted serum DHEA levels to 32.2% and cut cortisol levels by 24.2%. Which helped reduce stress and prevent critical ACh levels from dropping.viii
We were so impressed with Sensoril®, we formulated Cerbrexum™ to include the same dosage used in the clinical trial. You get a full 250 mg in each daily dose!
Brain Booster #2: Huperzine A
In addition to Ashwagandha, Cerbrexum™ also gives you 25 mcg of Huperzine A. This powerful alkaloid comes from Huperzineserrata, better known as “Toothed Clubmoss.” And it too is a powerful cognitive enhancer.
First, Huperzine A targets and blocks enzymes that break down acetylcholine (ACh). This raises ACh levels, which improves cognitive function.ix And that's not all. It also helps safeguard neurons against glutamate, beta-amyloid pigmentation and H2O2-induced toxicity.x
Plus, evidence suggests Huperzine A may promote nerve cell growth. A study published in Brain Research found it caused in vitro neural stem cells to grow more than twice as fast as the control group. And in vivo tests not only confirmed the neurogenesis. They produced a 25% increase of cell growth in just 4 weeks!xi
Brain Booster #3: Lion’s Mane
The third brain-boosting nutrient you get with Cerbrexum™ is Lion’s Mane. The Yamabushitake mushroom, or Lion’s Mane, is another of nature’s powerful protectors against cognitive decline.
In clinical studies, Lion’s Mane caused a five-fold increase in brain nerve growth factor (NGF) expression. As well as protected neurons and enhanced their production in the myelin sheath.xii But these are just the tip of the iceberg.
Lion’s Mane has also been linked a whole host of additional benefits. Including cardiovascular health... weight loss... even nerve regeneration. And Cerbrexum™ gives you a whopping 500 mg of Lion’s Mane in each daily dose!xiii
Brain Booster #4: Vitamin D
Most people know our bodies produce Vitamin D as a direct result of exposure to sunlight. Or that you can get it from eggs, fish, and milk (with vitamin D added). But even so, many – if not most – of us don’t get enough. Especially if you are older or live in an area where there isn’t plenty of sunshine.
And that’s a serious concern. Clinical studies link low vitamin D levels to memory loss and reduced cognitive function – especially in older adults.xiv Scientists are still working to determine the exact connection. But the importance of making sure you get enough is crystal clear. Because the lower our vitamin D levels, the longer it takes to process information. And the worse we are at performing at memory-related tasks.xv
So how much vitamin D do you need?
The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of vitamin D is 600 IU/day. However, you should consider that the bare minimum. Most experts recommend a much higher dose – between 1,000 and 2,000 IU/day.xvi
That's why we formulated Cerbrexum™ to include a full 2,000 IU of vitamin D in each daily dose. So you'll never have to worry about getting enough!
