• Support Brain Health •Support Enhancement of Brain Function • Support Healthy Memory • Provide Generous Antioxidant Support to the Brain
Representing more than 30 years of neuroscience research, this unique powdered drink formula, developed by Board- Certifi ed Neurologist and internationally recognized leader in nutritional neurology, David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, is designed to enhance brain performance and promote brain health. A key component of a complete program to ensure optimal brain function, Brain Sustain improves the energy production of brain mitochondria and provides generous antioxidant support to combat the damaging effects of excess free radicals in the brain.
Discussion N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC), a derivative of the amino acid, L-cysteine, is the precursor to glutathione, one of the brain’s most important antioxidants. The aim of oral supplementation is to augment the body’s reserve. NAC itself is a potent antioxidant shown to reduce formation of nitric oxide, a free radical implicated for a causative role in neurodegenerative disorders. 1 Phosphatidylserine (PS), a component of lecithin, plays an important role in neuronal energy production and enhances neuronal communication. After careful examination of scientifi c evidence, the FDA granted “qualifi ed health claim” status to phosphatidylserine, stating that “Consumption of phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of dementia in the elderly” and “Consumption of phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction in the elderly.” 2,3 Acetyl-L-Carnitine (aka ALCAR), an acetylated form of the amino acid, L-carnitine, is able to cross the blood brain barrier, where it acts as an effective antioxidant and protects brain cells from toxic chemical and stress-induced damage and deterioration.4 ALCAR enhances neuronal energy production by transporting fuel sources into the mitochondria and removing energy production waste products from them. 5Carnitine is readily converted into acetlycholine, a neurotransmittter essential for learning and concentration.6 Alpha Lipoic Acid also provides powerful antioxidant action and regenerates other important brain antioxidants including vitamins E, C, and glutathione. Unlike other antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid is both fat and water-soluble, greatly enhancing its ability to be absorbed from the gut and penetrate into the brain.6 Coenzyme Q-10 measurably increases the effi ciency of cellular energy production and serves as a potent antioxidant that may protect the brain from oxidative stress damage, which is believed to be partially responsible for neurodegenerative disease.7 Broccoli Seed Extract contains the patented form of the phytochemical in broccoli called sulforaphane glucosinolate. Extensive research demonstrates that, when this compound is broken down to sulforaphane (its active form), it safely and effectively upregulates the Nrf-2 system, enhancing the production of important antioxidants such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase and activating vital Phase 2 detoxifi cation enzymes.8,9 DHA is an essential fatty acid that is vital to brain health. It facilitates optimal structure and functioning of the brain cell membranes, which are important for cellular communication.10 Brain Sustain also contains VegaPRO™, XYMOGEN®’s proprietary pea/rice protein blend, as well as fat soluble antioxidants, vitamins D3 and E (as mixed tocopherols), and activated B vitamins, including 50 mg of ribofl avin and folic acid (as folinic acid).
