Memory Support

Memory support starts with the formation of memory-forming neurotransmitters. Dopamine and serotonin are critical neurotransmitters necessary for healthy memory. Using nutrients to help support the formation of these neurotransmitters is key. Besides protein-containing meals balanced with some carbohydrate and fats, folate and B12 are essential for neurotransmission.

Serotonin is made from the genes which utilize 5-HTP and vitamin B6. Dopamine is primarily synthesized from tyrosine which is found in protein.

Besides neurotransmitter formation, mitochondrial support is needed or the brain does not have sufficient energy to function regardless of how much neurotransmitters are present.

Thus, supporting healthy mitochondria is essential. NADH+CoQ10 Lozenge, PQQ Lozenge and glutathione are supportive of mitochondria.*

Fatty acids such as DHA, phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylcholine support healthy cell membranes. Cell membranes are needed to help store neurotransmitters within vesicles. Vesicles allow neurotransmitters to be made and stored. Vesicles provide the ability of rapid release of neurotransmitters when needed. Vesicles consist of a protein:phospholipid ratio of 1:3 with a lipid composition of 40% phosphatidylcholine, 32% phosphatidylethanolamine, 12% phosphatidylserine, 5% phosphatidylinositol, and 10% cholesterol.

DHA supports the formation of phospholipids bound to DHA which supports healthy brain development and maintenance.*

One may support phosphatidylcholine with Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C, Optimal Liposomal Glutathione or Optimal PC. Optimal DHA contains a significant amount of DHA per serving.*

Hydration is needed to support the working cell-to-cell communication. Water in the body is what actually supports the utilization of energy. Optimal Electrolyte provides magnesium, potassium and other nutrients needed to support hydration.*
