What Is It?
Cognitive Factors is an advanced cognitive support formulation providing a powerful combination of vinpocetine and Ginkgo biloba.
• Vinpocetine, promoting healthy blood flow, glucose transport and healthy red blood cell function in the brain. These mechanisms help maintain optimal cognitive ability. Furthermore, vinpocetine helps modulate sodium and calcium levels in nerve cells and exerts additional neuroprotective actions. In randomized, double blind trials, it has been shown to stimulate mental performance and memory.
• Ginkgo biloba, providing time-tested nutritional support, enhances the flow of oxygen and blood to the brain and promotes healthy transmission of nerve impulses. Furthermore, ginkgo has the ability to support healthy capillaries and blood vessels, promote proper platelet function, and act as a free radical scavenger.
Uses For Cognitive Factors
Healthy Cognitive Function: Vinpocetine and Ginkgo biloba provide complementary support for healthy blood flow to the brain, red blood cell function and oxygenation in the brain, nerve cell metabolism and neuroprotection. These activities play an important role in helping with mild memory problems associated with aging and in improving absentmindedness.
What Is The Source?
Vinpocetine is synthetically produced from vincamine, a constituent of the leaves of Vinca minor (lesser periwinkle). Ginkgo biloba in this formula is sourced from the leaves of the ginkgo tree and standardized to contain 24% ginkgoheterosides and 6% terpene lactones. Typical levels are 1.2% ginkgolide A, 0.8% ginkgolide B, 1.0% ginkgolide C and 2.5% bilobalides. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
