Higher Mind Bio-Aligned Formula With Phosphatidyl Serine Higher Mind addresses the multiple, interdependent body systems necessary for healthy brain function: neurotransmitter production, cell membrane stability, energy generation, antioxidant defense and myelin sheath generation. This Bio-Aligned Formula features phosphatidyl serine, a phospholipid that is an essential component of nerve cell membranes. These membranes conduct electrical impulses that promote communication between nerve cells, contributing to healthy cognitive function. Higher Mind – Neuroceutical Complex with Phosphatidylserine Neurotransmitter Production & Synaptic Activity Higher Mind supplies certain ingredients that are neurotransmitters and second messengers in the brain’s communication system. Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that convey messages from one nerve cell to another across the synaptic gap that separates them. Second messengers then transmit the messages from the membrane of the receiving nerve cell to its inner environment. Acetylcholine Production Higher Mind contains ingredients that play a role in acetylcholine metabolism. Acetylcholine, one of the most important neurotransmitters, is vital for memory and muscle movement. Nerve Cell Membrane Nerve cell membranes are critical to the processing of information by the nervous system, because the electric signal travels down the cell membrane. Phospholipids, particularly phosphatidylserine, are key structural components of nerve cell membranes. Sufficient phospholipids are important for optimal electrical signaling. Energy Metabolism Certain nutrients and herbs play important roles in supporting the body’s energy generation process and proper circulation. This is critical for the brain, which requires huge amounts of energy to carry out its numerous vital functions. Antioxidant Defense Some nutrients and herbs support the body’s natural process for antioxidant defense. The brain is composed of 60% fat, and the nerve cell membranes are primarily composed of lipids (fats) that are vulnerable to peroxidation by free radicals. Electrical signaling takes place primarily in the nerve cell membranes. Therefore, antioxidants are critical for a healthy functioning brain. Myelin Sheath Generation Certain B-vitamins are needed for the proper formation of myelin. This substance, which is composed of fat and protein, forms a protective insulating sheath around certain nerve fibers. Properly formed myelin is vital for optimal conduction of nerve impulses.
