CurcumaSorb Mind offers a broad range of polyphenol compounds, including flavonoids, EGCG and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) to promote daily cognitive function and emotional wellness. Curcumin and other polyphenols support neuronal stability and function, in part by promoting healthy cytokine balance and antioxidant defenses. Numerous clinical studies indicate that curcumin supports positive mood through these actions, as well as through the promotion of healthy levels of serotonin and dopamine. Research suggests that polyphenols may also offer support for occasional stress and mental alertness.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving obese individuals, 1,000 mg of a standard curcumin extract promoted relaxation as measured by the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). Curcumin is offered in this formula as the highly bioavailable Meriva® curcumin-phosphatidylcholine complex utilizing proprietary phytosome technology to increase resistance to degradation in the digestive tract and enhance absorption. Neurophenol™ is a proprietary blend providing flavonoids from standardized extracts of wild blueberry and whole grape. Research suggests a synergistic effect between the grape and blueberry extracts on plasma uptake. These fruits contain neuroprotective polyphenolic compounds that support healthy cognitive function and memory, targeting both vascular strength and elasticity to support healthy neuronal blood flow, as well as synaptic density and plasticity in the brain.
Cell and animal studies suggest that Neurophenol™ supports neuronal function and healthy aging, at least in part by supporting antioxidant defenses, cytokine balance and healthy gene expression. It is currently being evaluated in an ongoing multi-centered, placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind study of cognitive function in healthy aging adults. Green tea supports healthy neuronal function through antioxidant properties, cytokine balance and receptor function, and is theorized to promote healthy hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) function. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, supplementation with green tea powder was associated with positive mood.*
