BrainSmart Memory Ingredients
BrainSmart Memory formula contains the following ingredients: L- Carnitine, L-Arginie L Pyroglutamate, L-Methionine, Bacopa Monniera, Trimethyglycine (TMG), N-Acetyl Tyrosine (NALT), D-Phenylalanine (DLPA), Ginkgo Biloba, Paulina Cupana (Guarana), Choline, Bitartrate, Niacinamide (B3), Pyridoxine HCI (B6), Folic Acid(B9), and Riboflavin(B2).
BrainSmart Memory is based on a combination of amino acids and herbal extracts. Carnitine is an amino acid naturally produced by the body in the kidneys and liver. Its main function is to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, while protecting the heart from various affections. Carnitine comes in several forms, most important being L- Carnitine (LC) and acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC).
L- Carnitine is an important ingredient in weight-loss products as it helps converting the fat into energy. It can cause side effects such as vomiting, nausea, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhea, and even seizures.
Acetyl-L Carnitine (ALC) has been shown to be more effective in crossing the brain barrier and helping with brain related issues. This form has an acetyl group attached which produces an important neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. A strong connection has been established between high levels of acetylcholine and the improvement of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms. ALC has been shown to protect the nervous system.
The recommended daily dosage is 1 capsule 2 times per day. Consumers have reported satisfactory results after using this product.
