Thorne Research has created a comprehensive, synergistic blend of the most widely studied supplements that can promote brain health in one memory-enhancing product.* The ingredients in Memoractiv support cognitive function via a variety of mechanisms of action and are provided in a convenient combination formula.*
Ginkgo biloba in Memoractiv is provided as a Ginkgo phytosome (Virtiva®) – Ginkgo bound to phosphatidylserine. A double-blind trial demonstrated greater cognitive support from Virtiva (Ginkgo-phosphatidylserine complex) than with the same amount of Ginkgo in a standardized extract or Ginkgo bound to phosphatidylcholine.* Ginkgo promotes mental alertness, reaction time, memory, and cognition.* Many studies have shown Ginkgo promotes mental functioning in individuals with cognitive decline related to aging.* Double-blind trials of phosphatidylserine have shown enhanced learning and recall capabilities in older and middle-aged subjects with cognitive decline related to aging.* In addition to the phosphatidylserine in Virtiva, Memoractiv also contains 70 mg phosphatidylserine isolate per serving (2 capsules).
Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) helps support cognitive health.* In one double-blind trial conducted with former alcoholics ages 30-60 with cognitive decline, 2 g ALC daily for three months enhanced memory, visuo-spatial capacity, and vocabulary recall.* In controlled trials, ALC has improved cooperation, sociability, and attention to personal appearance in elderly subjects.*
An Ayurvedic herb, Bacopa monnieri is neuroprotective and has been shown to support memory and learning.* Bacopa results in a relaxed-yet-focused effect by enhancing levels of the inhibitory (relaxing) neurotransmitter GABA.*
Vinpocetine supports cerebral circulation and oxygen utilization, which can result in improved cognitive function.* In double-blind trials conducted with subjects experiencing cognitive decline, vinpocetine benefited speech, language, memory, learning, and other measures of cognitive performance.*
