Optimal Brain, by Seeking Health, is a specialty formula that supplies specific nutrients that have been shown to support natural inflammatory responses and provide antioxidant protection to support central nervous system functions and cognitive health.*
Physical exercise, mental stimulation, obtaining adequate sleep, and limiting exposure to toxins can all contribute to preserving cognitive health. Supporting healthy inflammatory mechanisms in the brain and protecting nerve cells from free radical damage can also play an important role in maintaining brain function and neurocognitive processes.*
Key Benefits and Actions of Optimal Brain by Seeking Health:
- Addresses brain microglial cell inflammation: Microglia are immune cells of the central nervous system that become activated upon detection of neurological insult or dysfunction. Once activated, they can trigger an inflammatory cascade that can promote tissue damage and accelerate neurodegeneration. The botanicals in this product, including green tea and blueberry have demonstrated the ability to inhibit microglial activation, thus helping regulate potentially harmful brain inflammation. The phytonutrients luteolin, rutin and pterostilbene can further downregulate inflammatory processes within the brain by inhibiting the synthesis and activity of certain inflammation-promoting compounds.*
- Provides antioxidant support for nerve cells: Free radical-induced damage to nerve cells can contribute to inflammation and result in cognitive decline with age. Blueberry, green tea and turmeric extracts provide antioxidant support that neutralizes free radicals and the consequent oxidative damage that they generate.* This action may promote healthy cognitive function.*
- Offers additional benefits for cognitive function: This product also focuses on the benefits of lecithin, an important phytonutrient made up of a natural mixture of phospholipids. Lecithin has been shown to increase levels of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in memory and learning, and may enhance cognitive function by increasing cholinergic activity in the brain.* Lecithin also allows for efficient nutrient transport within and across brain and nerve cell membranes, which helps ensure proper nourishment for the brain.*
