Description of Mental Edge 240 tabs from Source Naturals
Mental Edge Bio-Aligned Formula
Aging and nutritional imbalances can disrupt the multiple body systems that
affect healthy brain function. The result: cognitive symptoms such as forgetfulness,
inability to focus, and mental fatigue.
Mental Edge is a Bio-Aligned Formula that supports the interdependent body systems
involved with healthy brain function. Mental Edge formula combines nutrients,
herbs and special ingredients to address multiple, interdependent body systems:
neurotransmitter production, antioxidant defense, energy generation, stress
response and myelin sheath generation.
Mental Edge - A Literal Multivitamin for Your Brain
- Neurotransmitter Production
Neurons (nerve cells) communicate with each other when neurotransmitters (brain
chemicals) cross a small gap, called a synapse, to convey a message from one
neuron to the next. Second messengers help transmit the message from the membrane
of a receiving neuron to its inner environment.
- Acetylcholine Production
Acetylcholine is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the brain.
It is vital for memory and muscle movement. The following ingredients are
precursors to acetylcholine. For example, DMAE is particularly important because
it more easily crosses the protective blood-brain barrier, making it available
to form acetylcholine. DMAE also enhances mental concentration.
- Antioxidant Defense
Antioxidants defend brain tissues and cell membranes. Antioxidants are critical
for the brain because neuron cell membranes, where electrical signaling takes
place, are primarily composed of lipids (fats) that are vulnerable to peroxidation
(rancidification) by free radicals.
- Stress Response
Adaptogenic herbs help provide the brain with the support and energy it needs
to deal with the physical and mental stresses of an ever-changing environment.
- Energy Metabolism
Just as every cell needs the proper nutrients to survive, so do neurons. The
brain accounts for 2% of our body weight, yet uses 15% of our total energy
supply. Adequate levels of energy generating nutrients are vital to the highpowered
functioning of the brain.
- Myelin Sheath Generation
Myelin, composed of fat and protein, makes up the myelin sheath which forms
a protective insulating covering around certain nerve fibers. Properly formed
myelin increases nerve impulse conduction.
