Description of Higher Mind with Phosphatidyl Serine 90 tabs from Source Naturals
Higher Mind Bio-Aligned Formula
With Phosphatidyl Serine
Higher Mind addresses the multiple, interdependent body systems necessary for
healthy brain function: neurotransmitter production, cell membrane stability,
energy generation, antioxidant defense and myelin sheath generation. This Bio-Aligned
Formula features phosphatidyl serine, a phospholipid that is an essential component
of nerve cell membranes. These membranes conduct electrical impulses that promote
communication between nerve cells, contributing to healthy cognitive function.
Higher Mind - Neuroceutical Complex with Phosphatidylserine
- Neurotransmitter Production & Synaptic Activity
Higher Mind supplies certain ingredients that are neurotransmitters and second
messengers in the brain's communication system. Neurotransmitters are the
brain chemicals that convey messages from one nerve cell to another across
the synaptic gap that separates them. Second messengers then transmit the
messages from the membrane of the receiving nerve cell to its inner environment.
- Acetylcholine Production
Higher Mind contains ingredients that play a role in acetylcholine metabolism.
Acetylcholine, one of the most important neurotransmitters, is vital for memory
and muscle movement.
- Nerve Cell Membrane
Nerve cell membranes are critical to the processing of information by the
nervous system, because the electric signal travels down the cell membrane.
Phospholipids, particularly phosphatidylserine, are key structural components
of nerve cell membranes. Sufficient phospholipids are important for optimal
- Energy Metabolism
Certain nutrients and herbs play important roles in supporting the body's
energy generation process and proper circulation. This is critical for the
brain, which requires huge amounts of energy to carry out its numerous vital
- Antioxidant Defense
Some nutrients and herbs support the body's natural process for antioxidant
defense. The brain is composed of 60% fat, and the nerve cell membranes are
primarily composed of lipids (fats) that are vulnerable to peroxidation by
free radicals. Electrical signaling takes place primarily in the nerve cell
membranes. Therefore, antioxidants are critical for a healthy functioning
- Myelin Sheath Generation
Certain B-vitamins are needed for the proper formation of myelin. This substance,
which is composed of fat and protein, forms a protective insulating sheath
around certain nerve fibers. Properly formed myelin is vital for optimal conduction
of nerve impulses.
