Windmill Focus Formula is a mixture of vitamins and herbal ingredients designed to support memory, recall and concentration functions of the brain.
DMAE is one of the main ingredients used to create the formula. Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is an organic compound. Research has shown that it is related to choline and may be a biochemical precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (which plays an important role in enhancing sensory perception, attention, sleep and memory, among many other functions), although evidence is still inconclusive. DHA is an Omega 3 fatty acid found in great quantities in the brain and retina. Deficiency of DHA results in cognitive decline, and low levels of DHA have been found in the brain tissue of severely depressed patients.
The herbal ingredients are a number of very popular plants, such as The Siberian Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola and Vinpocentine. All have been used by traditional medicine for hundreds of years for their properties, the reason why they have also gained popularity in modern alternative medicine remedies. The Siberian Ginseng for instance has adaptogenic properties and is commonly prescribed for treating viral infections, enhancing memory and combating fatigue related symptoms.
The daily dose of Windmill Focus Formula is 2 caplets taken at meal time.
