The brain loses about 200,000 brain cells every day
Certain things can greatly accelerating this loss, including too much stress, alcohol, smoking, high blood pressure, and physical inactivity.
Fortunately no matter how many brain cells (or neurons) you’ve lost in the past (or are still losing), your brain has the ability to grow new brain cells through a process called neurogenesis. Your brain needs a protein called Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) for this to happen.
If you don’t have a sufficient supply of NGF to generate new brain cells the result could be brain fog, the inability to concentrate, and memory lapses.
Nerve Growth Factor is essential for brain health and neuroplasticity
The discovery of NGF by Rita Levi-Montalcini and Stanley Cohen in 1951 was one of the greatest breakthroughs in modern science, winning a Nobel Prize in 1986. Prior to its discover it was believed that brain cells could not recover or regrow after being damaged or killed.
NGF has now been studied extensively and shown to be one of the primary building blocks for overall brain health and neuroplasticity. It is essential for the growth and survival of neurons. The more neurons that you have and the better their health, the more efficiently you can rely signals in your brain.
In 1991 Dr. Kawagishi discovered that Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) contain hericenones and erinacines that stimulate the production of NGF in the human brain. Since then in vitro and in vivo studies have confirmed these findings. A recent human study showed that Lion’s Mane significantly increased the cognitive function of individuals with mild cognitive decline.
Supercharge your Mitochondria - the powerhouse of the cell
Mitochondria helps generate over 90% of the energy that your body uses on a daily basis. Your brain requires the greatest amount of energy compared of any other organ, so optimizing your mitochondrial health is vital for improving brain function.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is a cellular nutrient that can promote Mitochondrial Biogenesis, the creation of new mitochondrial. This supercharges the survival, growth, and function of mitochondrial leading to increased mental capacity. PQQ has also been shown to support NGF.
BioPQQ™ is the purest and most potent source of PQQ and is featured in the MycoMIND™ formula.
MycoMIND™ - the most essential daily nootropic
The combination of Lion’s Mane Mushroom and BioPQQ™ create a foundation for high-level mental performance. The ability to maintain and grow new neurons and mitochondria is necessary for all mental tasks, making MycoMIND™ the most essential daily nootropic.
