Brain Bright DTX is a unique formula is designed to enhance brain performance, support detoxification of the brain, and promote brain health. As a key aspect of a complete program to ensure optimal brain function, Brain Bright DTX improves the energy production of the mitochondria within the brain. Bright Bright DTX also provides plentiful amounts of antioxidants to support detoxification, while combating the damaging effects of free radicals in the brain.
INGREDIENTS THAT WORK
This is a source of the essential amino acid cysteine. NAC is a precursor to the brain’s most important and powerful anti-oxidant, glutathione. NAC is scientifically proven to be an effective antioxidant that reduces the formation of free radicals that contribute to oxidative damage in the brain.
This is a phospholipid that is highly concentrated in the brain, playing a key role in neuronal energy production and communication. Very small amounts of PS is found in food, meaning that our bodies must either synthesize PS or we must supplement with it for optimal brain health. The research shows that while supplementing with PS improvements in both cognitive function and memory were achieved. Cognitive decline in brain function may be related to an age related decline in nutrition, and early intervention with brain-supported nutrition should be warranted. Brain Bright DTX contains a high quality source of PS from sunflower lecithin and contains no animal products.
ALCAR is a form of the amino acid L-carnitine which has been found to have multiple roles in in protecting the nervous system. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it stabilizes cell membranes, acts as an effective antioxidant, and protects brain cells from toxic chemicals and stress-induced damage. In addition, ALCAR enhances neuronal energy production, facilitates transport of fuel and waste products into and out of mitochondria, and supports production of acetylcholine, a crucial neurotransmitter essential to the processes of learning and concentration.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID (ALA)
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a crucial aspect of brain detox. It acts both as a fat and water soluble anti-oxidant providing both intracellular and extracellular protection against oxidative stress. Due to its low molecular weight, alpha lipoic acid is easily absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract. From the gut it enters circulation, crosses the blood brain barrier, and then reaches the brain where it can regenerate other important antioxidants. These antioxidants include glutathione, vitamin E, and vitamin C.
COENZYME Q10 (COQ10)
Co10 is one of those ingredients that most people are familiar with in the way of brain health. In Brain Bright DTX, it is in the active form ubiquinone for maximum absorption. CoQ10 facilitates the transfer of electrons in the electron transport chain, playing a crucial role in the formation of ATP (adenine triphosphate) and the synthesis of energy within the cell. As a powerful antioxidant, CoQ10 protects the cells, cell membranes, and tissues from damaging free radicals and pro-oxidants. The antioxidant activity of CoQ10 protects the brain from oxidative stress which is partially responsible for degeneration of the neuronal cells.
BROCCOLI SEED EXTRACT
Brain Bright DTX includes a patented form of the phytochemical in broccoli called sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS). Extensive research provides us with the knowledge that when SGS is broken down into sulphoraphane (the active form), it up regulates the Nrf2 system, enhances antioxidant production, and activates vital phase 2 detoxification enzymes. This provides protection from environmental chemicals and common toxins as it supports detoxification pathways.
Adequate antioxidant protection from ongoing free radical damage is crucial to maintaining the health and function of the cell and, hence, tissues and organs, especially the brain. Unbridled oxidative damage can lead to metabolic disruption and organ dysfunction over time. Antioxidant-promoting phytochemicals such as SGS are considered “lifespan essentials” because they assist in maintaining health throughout adult life.
I am always looking for an edge, a way to boost my productivity. When my brain is sharp, focused, and energized, then I can perform the way I need to. This is why I take Brain Bright DTX. I use Brain Bright DTX to optimize brain function, support brain detox, and enhance memory and cognitive performance.
