The Memory Fortifier proprietary blend contains 3 natural ingredients (cistanche, ginkgo and goji) which are proven to promote brain healthy in different aspects. The blend is formulated to improve memory and cognitive function. By the use of these three special ingredients in our MMF proprietary blend, long term and short term memory can be improved. Provided by Tangut USA.
Cistanche, which is a special plant that can be found in the Tibetan Plateau, has been demonstrated by clinical studies and scientific research to support learning and memory abilities; Studies in mouse brain demonstrated that Cistanches extract stimulated NGF secretion in the cortex and hippocampus of the mouse brain. Cistanche also increased neuronal cell differentiation, neurite length, and synapse formation in the mouse hippocampus, and significantly enhanced learning and memory, as demonstrated by passive avoidance test and novel object recognition test.
Goji is also an important element in our blend. Goji polysaccharides have been proven to be effective on attenuate beta-amyloid peptide-triggered apoptosis of neurons.
The third natural ingredient that can be found in our proprietary blend is ginkgo biloba. Ginkgo is one of the most popular plant extracts believed to alleviate symptoms of cognitive disorders.
[Dr. Nancy adds: One human clinical study in young adults found that GBE complexed with phosphatidylserine resulted both in improved secondary memory performance and significantly increased speed of memory However, a 2012 meta-analysis reviewing randomized human clinical trials reported that G. biloba had no ascertainable positive effects on a range of targeted cognitive functions in healthy individuals, including memory, attention and executive function. Most of these trials were small; total number of participants in the 28 trials reviewed was under 3,000. Other studies and pre-clinical studies persist in presenting many reasons why gingko biloba is a neuroprotector, relieves anxiety, improves spatial and short term memory in mice, reduces inflammation and decreases build-up of A-beta in the brain. And anecdotally, many people report gingko biloba helps them with attention, memory and mood, including Dr. Nancy!. The answer to these very different results may lie in foods and other nutrients accompanying the gingko biloba. Perhaps to be clinically significant GBE needs to be combined with other agents, such as those included in Memory Fortifier, or in other brain healthy foods, such as Omega-3 eggs. (See Dr. Nancy's blog on Gingko biloba elsewhere on this website)].
