Is brain decline inevitable?

Brain decline is not an inevitable part of aging... You don't have to accept embarrassing "senior moments" as the norm. Certainly there are ways to help promote optimal brain function as you age.

Typically, your first brain function to go is your processing capacity or working memory capability. What if you could maintain it instead of losing it?

Research suggests the smart addition of particular nutrients can achieve exactly that. Nutrients such as:

Phosphatidylserine (PS) - Critical nutrient for brain health... important building block for your brain's 100 billion nerve cells. Important for memory, judgment, word recall and reasoning.* Transmits electrical signals through your body along up to 100 trillion pathways, and more...

Choline - Precursor for acetylcholine - a major chemical messenger for memories, thoughts, and other brain functions. Vital for optimal brain function during the natural aging process. GPC (Glycerophosphocholine) is the bioactive form with much clinical evidence for healthy brain function.

DHA/EPA - Fatty acids heavily concentrated in your brain... major building blocks for brain cells. Supports nerve and brain cell function; studies suggest shortages can affect cognitive function.

Astaxanthin - Very strong free radical scavenger helps protect your brain from oxidative damage.
