  • Methylcobalamin
  • 1 mg 60 vegetarian lozenges

Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system. It is essential for cell growth and replication. In some people the liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin needed for proper neuronal functioning. Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to maintain already healthy homocysteine levels.

It’s hard to find a natural antidote to today’s overstressed world. The encouraging news is that lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), a perennial herb in the mint family native to the Mediterranean region, has been clinically validated to help promote sleep and relaxation. What’s more, lemon balm produces these calming effects while also enhancing memory and attention!11-20

Cyracos® lemon balm extract is prepared from special lemon balm chosen for its high concentrations of hydroxycinnamicand rosmarinic acids. These active lemon balm constituents appear to enhance mood by modulating specific nicotinic and muscarinic receptors in the cerebral cortex of the brain.21-23

Aside from relieving everyday stress and sleep problems, this botanical extract may also offer smokers relief from the mental stress of quitting, aid in leveling mood swings, and help reduce the emotional hunger associated with dieting (or following a calorie restriction regimen for anti-aging purposes).

Relaxation-Promoting Effects of L-Theanine

The Japanese have long known that L-theanine, an amino acid derived from green tea, is a natural relaxant that diminishes stress,24-28 without drowsiness, impaired thought, or other side effects.

L-theanine produces calming effects in the brain in ways that have been compared to meditation, massage, and aromatherapy. L-theanine induces relaxation without causing drowsiness. In fact, studies show that L-theanine enhances the brain’s ability to concentrate, learn, and remember.29-36 L-theanine increases GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), an inhibitory neurotransmitter that not only induces relaxation but also produces a sense of well-being.37 L-theanine may normalize levels of dopamine, a critical brain hormone that is depleted by various stress factors.30,37,38

A Host of Health-Enhancing Benefits

Research shows that L-theanine has numerous health-enhancing effects, including promoting healthy cognitive function. In studies of neurons in cell culture, L-theanine reversed glutamate- or other neurotoxicant-induced neurotoxicity, a major cause of normal brain aging.24-38

Based on an enormous amount of published data showing the multiple beneficial effects of lemon balm extract and L-theanine, Life Extension has combined these potent but safe nutrients into a formula called Natural Stress Relief.

Note that the amount of L-theanine in this product is double that of most L-theanine standalone supplements. The reason for this potency increase is reports of greater benefit when at least 200 mg of L-theanine is taken.

Beware of Imitations: The L-theanine used in Natural Stress Relief is Suntheanine®, the only pure form of L-theanine protected by 40 U.S. and international patents and scientifically validated in clinical studies to be safe and efficacious. Independent laboratory analysis has verified that certain other products on the market claiming to contain “L-theanine” are only half L-theanine, the other half being a different form of theanine known as “D-theanine” which has not been scientifically evaluated in published studies.

Vitamin B12 is present in foods of animal origin, including dairy products and eggs. Thus, vegetarians are more susceptible to a dietary deficiency of this important nutrient. Likewise, vitamin B12 serum concentrations are reported to be significantly lower in elderly population groups compared to younger groups. It is estimated that 10% to 30% of individuals over the age of 50 have low stomach acid secretion which results in decreased bioavailability of vitamin B12 from food.

Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system. It is essential for cell growth and replication. In some people the liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin needed for proper neuronal functioning. Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth, or its ability to maintain already healthy homocysteine levels.

  • Brain Shield® Gastrodin
  • 60 vegetarian capsules
  • Item# 01802

Your brain is under constant onslaught from environmental and stress-related challenges, as well as normal aging processes. Fortunately, our brain cells have built-in, self-healing systems that provide natural defenses against these ongoing threats. Even more remarkable, molecular science is revealing that the human brain has the capacity to preserve the neurons involved in brain remodeling (plasticity).

Scientists in China and Singapore have found that gastrodin, a compound typically derived from a traditional Chinese orchid (Gastrodia elata), provides powerful support for the brain's normal defenses and regenerative mechanisms. To make these benefits available to members, Life Extension® introduces Brain Shield®, providing 300 mg of gastrodin in each capsule for maximum brain support.

Within 20 years an astounding 71 million aging individuals will be at risk for cognitive problems. Fortunately, new research indicates that some of the factors behind this alarming trend may lie within your control. The key is to maintain a steady supply of special nutrients clinically shown to support brain health as you age.

A healthy adult brain has about 100 billion nerve cells. Each cell requires specific dietary support for optimum performance. But most aging individuals unwittingly starve their brains of these critical nutrients with a heart-healthy diet deficient in eggs, red meat and cheeses, the very foods that contain these vital brain-boosting nutrients.

Half of the older people in the developed world are magnesium deficient. Don’t be one of them!

Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. In addition to support for cardiovascular and bone health, energy metabolism and mood, researchers are now focusing intenselyon magnesium’s benefits for cognitive function.

Unfortunately, it is very hard for your body to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain. This problem is of special concern for maturing individuals, as magnesium deficiency increases over time.

  • Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™
  • 100 mg 60 softgels

The mitochondria are the cells’ energy powerhouses, and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential component of healthy mitochondrial function. CoQ10 is required to convert the energy from fats and sugars into usable cellular energy. Yet, the body’s production of CoQ10 declines significantly with advancing age. With an ample amount of CoQ10, mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout the entire body — including the most densely populated area, the heart. CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant, helping protect proteins, and DNA of mitochondria from oxidation and supporting mitochondrial function.

More people are supplementing with CoQ10 than ever before. One reason is increased awareness that “statin” drugs used to lower LDL and cholesterol deplete CoQ10 levels in the blood, and possibly the tissues.

  • All cells in our bodies contain tiny organelles called mitochondria that function to produce cellular energy by means of the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cycle. The number of mitochondria in a cell varies widely by organism and by tissue type. A human cell can have from a few to several thousand mitochondria.

    One of the most serious events that cause the loss of cellular vitality is the depletion of mitochondrial energy-producing function. Cells require healthy mitochondrial activity to perform life-sustaining metabolic processes. As mitochondrial function weakens in our cells, so does the vitality of organs such as the heart and brain or in some cases, the entire body.
