Adrenal Complex: Adrenal Complex plays a crucial role in supporting the health of the adrenals. Ingredients include: Schizandra has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine and is regarded as an adaptogenicherb. Schizandra is used to bring balance to the adrenals and support a general sense of well being. Also regarded as an adaptogenic herb, Rhodiola has been used for centuries in Russia to help with fatigue, stress, and to boost immune health. Siberian ginseng is used to help boost energy levels, decrease fatigue, and improve overall immune health. Licorice root has a long history of use including adrenal support. Licorice root increases the half life of endogenous cortisol.
LVGB: LVGB is a blend of vitamins, herbal ingredients, and amino-acids that all play a synergistic role in supporting the liver. Silymarin is a well recognized liver supporting agent and is derived from the milk thistle plant. The leaves of the artichoke plant have been used historically to support digestion and aid in liver detoxification. N-Acetyl L-Cysteine is used as an antioxidant and also aids in detoxification of the liver.
Brain Forte: Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract is by far the most clinically proven plant extract for supporting cerebral function, Ginkgo has been shown to increase blood flow to the brain, promote nerve conductivity and improve memory in elderly individuals. The 120 mg dose matches many of the positive clinical trials. Vinpocetin is considered to be neuroprotective, vinpocetin has been shown to increase both cerebral blood flow and brain glucose uptake in animal experiments. As a neuroprotective agent, vinpocetin helps maintain circulatory and neurological strength in the brain. Further, the ability of vinpocetin to inhibit phosphodiesterase is likely to play a relevant role in long term memory enhancement. An alkaloid derivative of vincamine, which in turn is extracted from the periwinkle plant (Vinca minor).
Huperzine is a nutraceutical extracted from Chinese club moss (Huperzia serrata) that works as a potent, selective and long-term protector of the naturally occurring neurotransmitter, acetylcholine (ACh). To effectively enhance memory and learning, it is critical for ACh to have uninhibited performance, a function that is hindered by the presence of acetylcholine esterase (AChE), which works to break down ACh. By effectively blocking the activity of AChE, huperzine supplementation yields increased ACh levels, which are important for generating optimal neurotransmission for critical brain functions- especially memory. This mechanism has been studied for simple memory and learning, as well as neurological function in the elderly. Studies have shown Huperzine to improve memory in several animal models as well as human clinical trials, and has been shown to be safe and effective. Most clinical research has studied doses of 100 mcg per day, which we have included in Huperzine.
B Complex: A powerful blend of vitamin B, Folic Acid, ABADI B Complex is a formula with a complete blend of the important super-potent B vitamins. This formula supplies most of the B vitamins in their coenzymated forms so the body does not have to phosphorylate them, and includes an active blend of folates.
