HydroCurc® – Curcuminoids
HydroCurc® is an innovative turmeric extract that solves the well-documented absorbability issues of curcumin. It utilises a patented technology called LipiSperse® to increase the bioavailability of fat-soluble turmeric curcuminoids. LipiSperse® allows the fat-soluble curcuminoids to freely disperse in the aqueous environment of your gastrointestinal tract, making HydroCurc® the most absorbable form of curcumin available on the market.
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, supported by a wealth of traditional and scientific research. It has been shown to induce Nrf2, help with BDNF homeostasis and may play an important role in stalling the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s Disease. Due to its lipophilic properties, curcumin can cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to exert direct benefit within your brain.
AstaReal® Astaxanthin (AquaCelle® Enhanced)
Astaxanthin is an impressive antioxidant carotenoid that the human body cannot make. It must be obtained through diet or supplementation. Astaxanthin has amassed a remarkable portfolio of evidence for its free radical scavenging capabilities that benefit the brain, nervous system, muscles, mitochondria, circulatory system and vision. Through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions, it’s been shown to support memory, cognition and age-related decline.
Cell Protect™ contains CPO® Astaxanthin with Aquacelle® technology to maximise bioavailability and deliver a therapeutic dose. The enhanced delivery system, combined with Asaxanthin’s natural lipophilic properties, means the Astaxanthin in Cell Protect can cross the blood-brain barrier to exert its effects directly within the central nervous system.
Quercetin (LipiSperse® Enhanced)
Quercetin is a type of flavonoid found in many plant foods and herbs and is used therapeutically for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-allergenic properties. Quercetin can help mitigate neuroinflammation by inhibiting nitric oxide (NO) production and NFkB to prevent inflammatory-related neuronal injury. Quercetin has a regulatory effect on other important antioxidants such as glutathione, superoxide dismutase and catalase and may help with mental and physical fatigue by supporting mitochondrial biogenesis.
The patented LipiSperse® Quercetin CWD 90 used in Cell Protect™ has superior bioavailability over standard quercetin preparations. This enhanced bioavailability combines well with quercetin’s ability to cross the blood-brain barrier to maximise its effect in the nervous system.
Resveratrol is a fat-soluble, polyphenolic compound widely investigated for its potent antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Studies have shown that regular consumption of resveratrol may slow the rate of cognitive decline by more than a decade. Resveratrol is believed to contribute to the longevity of the brain and nervous system by improving cerebral circulation, down-regulating markers of inflammation and supporting blood sugar control.
Veri-Sperse® trans-resveratrol combines enhanced LipiSperse® delivery technology with the high-quality, fermented trans-resveratrol Veri-te™ to deliver almost double the bioavailability of regular resveratrol alone. This high-impact resveratrol helps to maximise effectiveness and combines synergistically with other ingredients, such as quercetin, in Cell Protect™ to deliver optimal results.
The Brassica family of cruciferous vegetables are some of the most potent antioxidant-containing foods on the planet. Brassicas are rich in a range of nature’s most impressive plant phytochemicals such as polyphenols, anthocyanins, flavonoids, terpenes, glucosinolates or sulphur-containing compounds, S-methylcysteine, sulfoxide, coumarins, vitamins, soluble sugars, as well as many minerals and antioxidant enzymes.
Brassica’s play a role in neuroprotection by supporting healthy DNA and modulating neuroinflammation through their antioxidant activity in glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Through supporting effective phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification pathways, Brassica’s may also help to protect brain health by maintaining efficiency in the pathways of toxin removal as well as beneficially supporting the immune system.
Zinc is often closely associated with an optimally functioning immune system, but did you know it’s the second most abundant mineral found in the brain?
Zinc is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes in the human body and plays important roles in growth and development, immune function, blood sugar regulation, neurotransmission, vision, reproductive health, and intestinal ion transport. Within the nervous system, zinc is released directly into the synaptic cleft during nerve transmission and plays a regulatory role in blood-brain-barrier integrity. Zinc imbalance has been associated with neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and motor neurone disease, due to its role in the antioxidant system, zinc-copper superoxide dismutase (SOD1).
Selenium is a critical trace mineral in over 25 selenoproteins, including the important antioxidant glutathione peroxidase. Selenium also acts in synergy to recycle other antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C and vitamin E and plays a vital role in the synthesis and activation of thyroid hormones, which are essential to energy production and clear-thinking. Adequate levels of selenium are necessary to support immune system function and for quality sperm in male fertility.
Within neurons, selenium has been shown to play a role in controlling the inflammatory amplifier NFkB. It may also protect the nervous system from damage associated with heavy metal exposure due to its heavy metal-binding capabilities. Selenium deficiency is also linked to neuronal damage that can lead to seizures.
