Brain Power strengthens the nervous system especially the central nervous system which weakens with age and in cases of chronic pain.
PC and PS phospholipids, vital for our cells
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylserine (PS) are phospholipids located within the inner leaflet of the cell membrane. PS and PC are implicated in a myriad of membrane-related functions. PS is essential to the functioning of all body cells but is most needed in the brain.
Sources of PS
Normally our body can synthesise all the PS it needs. However, in our diet, only animal sources such as brain, kidneys, liver and fatty fish such as mackerel are rich in PS.
As a result, vegetarians consume much less PS. PS was originally manufactured from cow brains, and most studies used this form. However, due to viruses harboured in animal brain cells, this source is no longer available. Today, PS is made from soybeans or other plants and is just as effective.Thus, Neuralta
® Brain Power liquid capsules are made from soybean extract which contains 20% PS.
Effects of PS and PC
Clinical studies suggest that PS can support brain functions that tend to decline with age. 17 to 25 studies in humans have shown the following PS benefits:
• Improves age-related nerve endings and dendrite damage.
• Improves cognitive performance
• Improves mood
• Improves learning abilities and memory
• has neuroprotective and antioxidative properties especially when taking medicines and drugs that act on the brain eg. anti-depressants, sleeping pills, strong pain killers, psychotropics, illicit drugs etc.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, is an essential component for human health. DHA is a major building block of cell membranes and can be found in high concentrations in brain and nerve tissue as well as in the eye retina and testes. It is crucial for the functioning of embedded proteins such as rhodopsin, and for vision and post-synaptic receptors for neurotransmission. Generally, DHA in phospholipids contributes to membrane properties such as fluidity, flexibility and permeability. Furthermore, limited storage of DHA in adipose tissue suggests that a continued supply is needed.
DHA, PS and PC in action
PS and DHA are essential constituents of brain membranes and are central in brain activity. One special function of PS is to keep neuronal membranes flexible, to enable the free flow of nutrients. DHA is crucial for the synthesis of PS in the human brain. A deficiency of DHA leads to a Cardiovascular health creased PS content in the brain.
In the same way as acetylcholine, PS and PC facilitate the production and the release of neurotransmitters, such as acethylcholine, which may diminish as we age or suffer from mental decline. PS has been the subject of many human clinical trials, has gained FDA recognition and is used worldwide. DHA has long been recognised as an essential nutrient in infant formulas, necessary to ensure proper brain development and visual acuity.

Liquid Capsules are approved by pesco-vegetarian diets and specific food requirements
GFK consumer survey performed in 2007 in Germany with a panel of 100 consumers.
Liquid capsules are an innovative delivery form with an entirely new appearance. Thanks to the nitrogen bubble injected into the capsule, the liquid fill can move freely and visibly within the capsule. This look is highly appreciated by consumers and implies fast action, higher efficacy, quality, convenience and safety.
® Brain Power liquid capsules perfectly protect fatty acids from oxidation.
