Ever go into a room and forgot what you went in there for? Well, consider this; “ A piece of brain tissue the size of a grain of sand contains 100,000 neurons and 1 billion synapses all communicating with each other. Brain information moves at an impressive 260 miles per hour. This is faster than a Formula 1 race car. ”And any given memory is deconstructed and distributed in different parts of the brain.” Then, for the memory to be recalled, it gets reconstructed from the individual fragments.” There, now you don’t have to feel so bad when you forget a phone number. Does anyone still memorize phone numbers? Let’s talk about a great product to help keep your brain humming along like a well-oiled machine. It’s called Full Focus+ by Neurobiologix. It consists of 12 ingredients formulated to work together to maximize each ingredient's full potential. Full Focus+ consists of very important ingredients for brain function, such as Green Coffee Bean extract, SAMe, L-Taurine and L-Methionine. So let’s start with Green coffee bean extract.
Green coffee beans are regular coffee beans before they’ve been roasted and ground into that delicious beverage many of us must have to get up in the morning. When coffee beans are in their green state, they contain a huge amount of a chemical compound called chlorogenic acid, a powerful antioxidant. Besides the many other beneficial properties of cholorgenic acid, everything from helping with depression to liver disease, studies have shown that it elevates plasma levels of a growth factor (GCSF—or granulocyte-colony stimulating factor) that is associated with improved memory.
One study showed that chlorogenic acid significantly improved the impairment of short-term or working memory and significantly reversed cognitive impairments in mice. According to a study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, GCSF is also thought to promote the formation of new brain cells and the synapses that connect them. Both caffeine and coffee show powerful effects in protecting brain cells from age-related degeneration. Wow, give me that cup o’ joe! But in the meantime, green coffee bean is just one of the brain enhancing elements of Full Focus. I will talk about SAMe, L-Taurine and L-Methionine in my next blog sequence.
