Brain Health – Attention, Focus and Brain Energy

Keeping up with our daily lives can be challenging. The stresses and responsibilities we continuously put on ourselves may not only cause physical problems but may also have an impact on our brain function and mental wellbeing. This would include reduced feelings of alertness, difficulty in focusing on certain tasks, decline in memory function and overall cognitive wellbeing. A recent survey showed that 57% of people feared reduced brain function more than a physical decline! In addition, more than half of the participants admitted they have trouble remembering names and family members’ birthdays.

As we are continuously learning and adding responsibilities, our brain needs assistance through our everyday lifestyle activities to maintain its function. Some of these include exercising, healthy eating habits and proper hydration, staying social and also proper supplementation. Taking this into account, Oxylent® Memory is a unique formula that contains the patented brain health ingredient, Cognizin®, which provides nutritional support for attention, focus and brain energy.†

What is Cognizin®?

Cognizin® is a patented form of citicoline, which is a fundamental natural brain health nutrient found in every cell of the body. When absorbed as a supplement, citicoline is distributed throughout the body whereby it crosses the blood-brain barrier and reaches the central nervous system. It helps maintain normal levels of acetylcholine, noradrenaline and dopamine which assists to regulate cognitive function and memory. There are many artificial nutrients out there that may increase energy and attention levels. However, unlike Cognizin®, they come with a ‘crash’ later on. This natural ingredient fuels mental processes and supports focus and concentration without any of the unnatural side effects.

Backed by Science

Clinical studies have also shown that Cognizin® helps maintain the brain’s energy. It does this by sustaining the brain’s main energy producer, mitochondria. When mitochondria are looked after and kept healthy, higher levels of ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) are produced (which is your body’s main energy source), leading to continuous brain stimulus and firing of electrical impulses. This ultimately leads to greater brain energy and attention span. The more efficiently the brain cells can produce energy, the better it functions as a whole. More evidence was obtained when researchers at the Harvard-associated Brain Center found increases in brain activity in participants that had taken Cognizin® for six weeks. These differences were clearer when participants took part in tasks that were more complicated and required constant attention.

Cognizin® also provides the essential nutrients required for the body to produce phospholipids. These are needed as they make up approximately 30% of the brain tissues, provide protection for motor neurons and neural membrane and support neural communication. This is also essential for mitochondrial electron transport causing a more effective regeneration and production of ATP to increase brain energy.

In addition, Cognizin® has further benefits including the following:

  • Combats the effects of certain neurodegenerative processes
  • Maintains normal cognitive function with aging
  • Acts as an antioxidant to preserve normal healthy visual function
  • Protects neural tissue from free radical damage

Oxylent® Memory is an all-natural cognitive supplement designed to support brain health, mental clarity and alertness. Offering the clinically studied nutrient, Cognizin® Citicoline, as well as other potent ingredients including Phosphatidyl Choline, Huperzine A, Yerba Maté, Ginseng Root, Gingko Biloba and Green Tea Leaf, Memory Oxylent® can be taken to support natural energy and overall cognitive function to help you stay alert and on track whether at school or at work.

Oxylent® Memory is recommended for anyone who may have difficulty focusing and/or concentrating, are looking for cognitive function support, to support mental clarity and alertness, brain health and memory function, looking for natural energy and/or to support their overall mental health.† Oxylent® Memory is available in vegetarian capsules and contains no preservatives, GMO’s, gluten or soy and is magnesium stearate free!
