Maintains working memory and brain function in seniors
Efalex Active 50+ combines omega-3 fish oil with key nutrients known for their beneficial role in maintaining healthy brain structure, function and performance. The formulation is made up of DHA-rich fish oil, phosphatidylserine (PS), folic acid, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin E as well as the herbal leaf extract from Gingko biloba which is also reported to maintain short term memory.
Specifically, DHA and PS, are normal components of our diet and are also critical parts of our brains since they are directly involved in transferring messages between nerve cells. Unfortunately, our dietary intake of DHA is currently less than half of the suggested minimum required for health and PS intake has also dropped to less than half of what it was 25 years ago. Vitamin B12 and folic acid work together to protect the brain from harmful effects of a substance called homocysteine which is produced in the body in association with the development of cardiovascular disease. Gingko biloba extract has been shown to prevent short term memory loss.
