Brain Rescue 1 (BC2 + B4B)
Brain Rescue 1: Is the combination of one serving of Brain Care II and one serving of B is for Brain touted by clients and patients alike to help with mental clarity and cognition. If you can decrease neuroinflammation and provide the component to help cells repair, functionality can be restored. Developed to address inflammation and to improve brain function in those with concussions and TBI, as well as being a Nootropic (Brain Smart product). More comprehensive information is available at www.TBIHelpNow.org/the-science.
Recommendation: One sachet/packet prior to breakfast daily or as needed.
Children: The established dosing for children less than 5 has not been established.
Pregnancy: Although there are no drugs or harmful products in this or any of our proprietary products, consultation with your healthcare provider is highly recommended before taking this or any other products.
EGCG: Epigallocatechin gallate is the active agent in Green Tea. Studies on post-stroke patients and those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease all benefited with an improvement in cognitive functioning when placed on EGCG.
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.
DHA: One of the major building blocks of the brain, the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is critical for optimal brain health and function at all ages of life. Researchers are now finding that DHA provides brain-boosting benefits in infants and aging adults. A key mechanism of DHA is the protection of neural tissue by the production of Resolvin and Protectin D.
Tocopherol: Also known as Vitamin E (alpha, delta, and gamma) which has been found to reduce the production of inflammation by downregulating the production of the transcriptional factor NFkB responsible for signaling DNA to manufacture the inflammatory chemical.
Ascorbic Palmitate: Unique to the different formulations of Vitamin C is this fat-soluble form which can easily enter into the blood supply feeding the brain. Once in the brain, Vitamin C is a major antiinflammatory and free radical scavenger reducing inflammation.
Quercetin: This is a natural polyphenolic, flavonoid antioxidant and has a number of important effects on the metabolism of the brain and reduction of inflammation. First, Quercetin can increase the production of mitochondria starting within 7 days yielding a higher production of energy as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This ATP is used to run cellular functions which can be perceived as clearing thoughts, more energy and loss of fogginess. Second, Quercetin downregulates the production of the transcriptional trigger for inflammation, the notorious NFk.
Glutathione: Functions as the front-line defense against oxidative stress in the brain. After trauma, the levels of Glutathione are reduced, through consumption and damage to the enzyme system that regenerate it, and this allows for the accumulation of free radicles. This increased Oxidative Stress, which damages neurons and alters the molecular chemistry in the brain.
