Why should you take CHF #75? The key word may be to help with progression of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers have made huge leaps forward in stopping the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. In a ground-breaking study, nine Alzheimer’s patients with an average age of 67 were given 600 milligrams of alpha-lipoic acid daily for almost a year. During that time testing revealed that their conditions stabilized and they did not experience any additional loss of cognitive function which would have otherwise been expected.
Our CHF #75 contains the above mentioned alpha-lipoic acid as well as vinpocetine and curcumin. Vinpocetine improves brain metabolism by increasing oxygen flow to the brain. Vinpocetine may improve overall cognitive function, especially memory, concentration, and mental energy. Vinpocetine is derived from an alkaloid found in the periwinkle plant. It has become popular as a memory enhancer and cognitive aid and is used to treat a variety of neurological disorders including cerebrovascular disorders – low cerebral blood flow, headache, hypoxia, cerebral atherosclerosis and stroke; mental impairment – poor memory, aphasia, motor disorders, senility and dementia; sensory disorders – hearing impairment, inner-ear problems, dizziness, low visual acuity, diabetic retinopathy and failing neuronal metabolism. Most of these uses have clinical and laboratory support.
The rhizome (root) of turmeric (Curcuma longa Linn.) has long been used in traditional Asian medicine to treat gastrointestinal upset, arthritic pain, and “low energy.” Laboratory and animal research has demonstrated the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties of turmeric and its constituent curcumin.
