Health Benefits at a Glance:
We’ve all heard the term “think fast.” But what does that mean? Well, there are measurable processes in your brain that govern retention, recall and processing—and the right nutrients can support them all.
Why it Works:
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoid compounds found in high concentrations in the macula of your eye. In fact, measuring lutein and zeaxanthin levels in your eye is an excellent indicator of how much of these beneficial nutrients are present in your brain. That’s important because new research indicates these carotenoid compounds encourage quick thinking, memory, and cognitive function.
The Science Behind the Product:
Lutein and zeaxanthin carotenoids
Because they are heavily concentrated in macular pigment, lutein and zeaxanthin are associated with eye health—but they are also found in the brain. This is significant because three, year-long, independent studies indicate that these carotenoids can also encourage improved spatial memory, reasoning skills and complex attention scores.1-3
These positive cognitive results appeared regardless of age: healthy older adults taking lutein and zeaxanthin saw increased measurements of their ability to filter out irrelevant information while multitasking—as well as increased activity in the left prefrontal area of the brain involved in understanding verbal information, forming long-term memories, focusing on challenges and more.1,2
Young people (ages 18 to 25) taking these carotenoid nutrients for six months also showed improved cognitive performance, as well as healthy levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor—a neurotransmitter modulating compound essential to healthy learning and memory formation.4
Gotu kola (Centella asiatica)
Gotu kola has been the subject of extensive research. 11 different studies showed that C. asiatica can help improve both alertness and mood health.5 However, it’s important to understand that traditional gotu kola extracts aren’t standardized—and this makes a big difference when you look at the results.
A two-month study had healthy adults either take a gotu kola extract standardized to a naturally occurring compound called, “asiaticoside," or a placebo. The first group showed significant improvements in their working memory, word recognition, spatial memory and alertness. They also reported feeling calmer.6
Water hyssop (Bacopa monnieri)
Bacopa monnieri extract is a very popular study aid, and for good reason. In one study, a group that ranged between 18 and 60 years old were given bacopa, daily. After only three months they began processing visual information faster, had better learning rates and easier memory consolidation—and even reported worrying less.7
Several studies of adults between the ages of 45 and 65 also indicated improved working memory, attention, and memory quality—in as little as four weeks. Additional improvements included visual processing speeds, verbal learning, as well as memory retention.8-11
