Last year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry went to three researchers who identified and utilized the luminescent protein in the Aequorea victoria jellyfish to map and observe the many biochemical processes that go on in the human body. In subsequent research, scientists found that the same luminescent protein, apoaequorin, attaches itself to cellular structures and, like human calcium-binding proteins (CaBP), protects brain cells.
Well, guess what? As we age, our ability to produce CaBP naturally slows down, and we start losing about 30,000 brain cells every day. (Ooh, that hurts!) No shortage, brain cells included, goes unnoticed in the marketplace....
So Quincy Bioscience came up with a proprietary formula for an apoaequorin health supplement to provide protection for the brain cells of folks over 40. The 'brain pill' is called Prevagen® and it can improve your memory within 8 to 30 days.
In the laboratory, when introduced to Prevagen, brain cell survival is increased by 50 percent compared to brain cells not introduced to the apoaequorin supplement. The chart below shows how having more brain cells translates into actual improvement in memory:
The chart shows the product's success with 56 participants
tested on a memory screening tool after 8 days and then after 30 days
of taking the Prevagen supplement. There's a breakdown of the memory
tasks that improved. Mean age of participants was
Quincy Bioscience says that Prevagen may show memory improvement in 30 to 90 days, but admits that Prevagen may not help everyone's memory. As usual, I did my Internet survey of customer reviews and, frankly, the only negative comments I read seemed to be from those who had not tried Prevagen, but who doubted the science.
I don't know about you, but I'm trying the brain pill. As a matter of fact I just ordered a bottle for me and sent one to my Dad for Father's Day!
You know how scary it is to lose your memory. Imagine what a great gift it would be if you could help a loved one improve his or hers. Prevagen comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. (If you order at Amazon, you get a great price, plus free shipping!)
