Description

The term nootropic comes from the Greek nóos (mind, intellect) and tropos (to bend or turn), and includes all substances that promote learning and improve cognition and memory (1).

Pro Memory is a product that contains ingredients of the highest quality that contribute to neurotransmission, cognitive function, short-term memory and enhance overall mental function.

Ginkgo biloba (Gingko biloba L.) is a plant that helps to sustain mental and cognitive activity (2). Ginkgo also contributes to normal blood circulation, which is linked to mental performance and responsiveness. It also helps to maintain mental well-being during times of stress and helps to support concentration and short-term working memorys. It can also be used to help counteract age-related deterioration in memory and cognitive function. Finally, ginkgo helps to maintain mental clarity, and to retain and remember facts (2). Our extract is standardised to contain 24% flavonol glycosides and 6% terpene lactones, guaranteeing the highest quality.

Huperzia (Huperzia serrata (Thunb.) Trevis.) belongs to the Lycopodiaceae family and helps to enhance overall mental function (3). The alkaloid huperzina A is extracted from the aerial parts of this plant. This alkaloid has been found to be able to inhibit the enzyme acetylcholesterase, which would cause an increase in concentration of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the synaptic space* (4). Our product contains 100 micrograms of Huperzine A per daily dose.

Citicoline is an essential intermediary in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine (5), a membrane phospholipid that is the principal component of brain tissue. Citicoline is also a precursor to acetylcholine (6), a neurotransmitter that regulates cognitive function. Cognizin® has been selected because it is backed by multiple clinical trials and is a citicoline obtained through fermentation.

Calcium is a mineral that contributes to normal neurotransmission, since an adequate concentration of calcium within cells and in extracellular fluid is required for neurotransmission to occur (7). This mineral is also important for normal blood coagulation and the process of cell division and specialisation (8).

Finally, zinc has been included to complete the Pro Memory formula. Zinc is an essential mineral that contributes to normal cognitive function and to protecting cells against oxidative stress (8).

*Synaptic space: intermediate space between the transmitting neuron and the recipient or postsynaptic neuron.
