B is for Brain
Fuel the brain for optimal functioning
A composition of the most important B vitamins for optimal brain health. This includes CoQ10 and PQQ to advance cellular functioning. See Product label.
Promotes optimal cellular function for memory and cognition.
Dose: One-half to one Teaspoon before breakfast
Our newest entry into the expanding line of Millennium Health Centers, Inc. products took six clinical years to perfect and contains one of the most important energy producing components known called PQQ; a sister to Co-Q10 but 100-1000 times more potent. In 2014, with the surge in veterans presenting to us with insomnia, fatigue, migraines, fogginess, memory and mood issues we began using encapsulated nutrients known to boost mitochondrial functioning. Mitochondria are responsible for the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate); the substance of life that runs all our cellular functions. Without sufficient energy to run the body we just don’t function well.
PQQ - (Pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a compound known to influence multiple cellular pathways, including the production of nerve growth factor (NGF). By protecting neurons and stimulating nerve growth in the brain, PQQ also supports cognitive performance, including memory and attention. Additional benefits of PQQ are its ability to remove free radicals and lower oxidative stress, increase production of ATP, and to stimulate the production of Mitochondria.
Vitamin CoQ10 – (Ubiquinone) It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, which generates energy in the form of ATP. Ninety-five percent of the human body's energy is generated this way. Organs with the highest energy requirements—such as the brain, heart, liver, and kidney—have the highest concentrations. The more energy produced the better and clearer the brain functions.
Vitamin B1 – (Thiamine) is important for production of neurotransmitters, memory, mental clarity, cognition and steady gait. Vitamin B1 is important for production of energy from carbohydrates. Vitamin B1 can treat symptoms associated with Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome and reduce oxidative stress.
Vitamin B2 – (Riboflavin) deficiency is associated with neurodegeneration, peripheral neuropathy, loss of thyroid (T4) metabolism with personality changes. Vitamin B2 might also protect the eyes from Cataracts.
Vitamin B5 – (Pantothenic acid) functions as the required precursor of coenzyme A (CoA), through which it plays key roles in multiple biological processes, including many that regulate carbohydrate, lipid, protein, and nucleic acid metabolism. Acetyl-CoA is necessary for synthesis of the complex fatty-acyl chains of myelin, and of the neurotransmitter acetyl- choline all for brain functioning.
Vitamin B12 – (Methyl-Cobalamin) deficiency express itself by a wide variety of hematological, neurological, psychiatric, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders. Nervous system disorders, such as brain atrophy, myelopathy, and neuropathy, are often the earliest and, in some cases, the only clinical symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency. Ongoing research suggested that the imbalance of cytokines and growth factors may be essential to the pathogenesis of the white matter lesions and thus neuropathy due to cobalamin deficiency.
