Maintaining the integrity of both the brain and the nervous system depends heavily on their health. Since the functioning of the central nervous system has high metabolic requirements which aren’t fulfilled at times due to poor diet, it is imperative to include the regular intake of a high-quality, natural supplement that can provide what the brain needs.
Bacopa Enlighten™ is an extract of the traditional Ayurvedic plant Bacopa monnieri, commonly known as water hyssop, which has been used for centuries to support the proper function of the brain. The extract has also been shown to offer support by stimulating the brain’s production of the very important antioxidant glutathione peroxidase, which supports healthy aging.
Our formula works by harnessing the power of Bacopa monniera linn, also known in India as brahmi, to support brain health, cognitive function, and healthy aging. Although the brain and nervous system’s relative isolation within the body somewhat protects them from factors which can invade other body cells, this separation leaves them vulnerable to the buildup of toxins and other harmful agents.
AOR’s Bacopa Enlighten™ has been shown in clinical studies to help improve memory, reduce the effects of stress on the brain, and enhance clear thinking. It has also been shown to offer antioxidant support by stimulating the brain’s production of the very important antioxidant glutathione peroxidase. Ideal for those concerned with memory loss and overall brain function.
Ever felt like you can’t remember the simple things in everyday life? Have you forgotten your keys or do you walk around the house looking for your glasses? As we age, the brain also experiences aging, often as a decrease in blood flow which can impair memory and lead to changes in cognitive skills. Age may also bring a diminished ability to access short-term information and increase short-memory degradation.
To support cognitive function and brain health, it’s important to consume the right nutrients. Among those vital nutrients is the compound choline from citicoline, which is important in the production of phospholipids, which are integral components of cellular membranes. Citicoline is ideal for people looking to support cognitive performance and mood, or support the health and function of brain cells as we age.
Citicoline is a naturally occurring compound, a source of choline, which is important in the production of integral components of cellular membranes, called phospholipids. Citicoline is found in every cell of the body, and it’s particularly important for the brain, because it helps provide cognitive support.
Citicoline supports both the synthesis of new phospholipids and the effective use of phospholipids from food or supplements to produce a youthful balance in the brain’s structure.
AOR’s Citicoline offers cognitive support, helps to promote brain functioning, and is beneficial for those who experience some memory loss or have any age-related memory impairment. It also promotes optical nerve support.
Vitamin D3 5000IU
According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 80.7 percent of the U.S. population lived in urban areas as of 2010. With a majority of people living in urban areas, there is increased exposure to high pollution and a greater risk of vitamin D deficiency. That’s why it’s important to get some vitamin D from sources besides sunlight.
Vitamin D3 benefits the body by providing support to the immune system, ensuring proper calcium absorption that promotes healthy bones, while also helping balance mood. Vitamin D is mainly known as a mood booster, especially during winter months when the skin gets little exposure to the sun. As more knowledge about the benefits of this vitamin are discovered, it is becoming more popular to supplement.
AOR’s VSoftgel™ Vitamin D3 5000IU is one of the first of its kind, providing truly vegan vitamin D3 sustainably sourced from non-GMO lichen. Lichen is a plant-like substance made up of symbiotic algae and fungi. Up until recently, the only vegan form of vitamin D available was vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) which is usually sourced from soy and is not as absorbable as vitamin D3. However, most D3 products are usually sourced from sheep wool oil and are therefore not compatible with a vegan diet.
Manufactured with our patent-pending technology, VSoftgel™ offers superior absorption that is safe for vegans and vegetarians. The biggest advantage of offering fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin D3 in a soft gel is that it allows for better bioavailability.
Although we use our eyes for everything we do, as 80% of what we observe and understand comes through the sense of sight, our eyes tend to be hidden in plain view when it comes to the efforts we make to stay healthy. Very few of us take proactive steps to keep our eyes healthy, even though our vision is under constant attack from the overuse of screens and overexposure to UV light.
Moreover, as we age, there is a decrease in the body’s natural production of lutein, which is a nutrient vital to eye health. Lutein is the dominant component of the peripheral retina and is present in high concentrations in the lens and macula of the human eye. Lutein’s main function is to support ocular health by promoting the absorption of blue light and ultraviolet rays.
Lutein is a fat-soluble nutrient, which means it requires fat for proper absorption. AOR’s Vsoftgel™ Lutein also provides free lutein rather than a lutein ester for enhanced absorbability. Free lutein is found in the human retina and our bodies convert lutein esters from our diets into free lutein for use. Vsoftgel™ Lutein allows the body to skip this step.
AOR’s Lutein 40mg extract is made from marigold flower oleoresin, and it contains a small amount of zeaxanthin; wherever lutein is found, zeaxanthin is naturally present.
