 Progressive Health’s Progressive-17

Description

Progressive Health's Progressive-17 is an advanced nutritional formula specially developed to support brain health, promote memory and manage Alzheimer's symptoms. It contains clinically evaluated nutrients including phosphatidylserine, acetyl L-carnitine, gingko biloba, bacopa, vinpocetine, huperzine A, vitamin C and vitamin E. Progressive-17 works to support neurotransmitters, slow brain cell degeneration and boost immunity.

Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia occur in older adults and cause memory loss, confusion and eventually death. Approximately 4.5 million people have Alzheimer's disease and the number is expected to rise to about 16 million people by 2050. Research suggests that Alzheimer's patients are often nutritionally deficient. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer's, Progressive-17 can promote healthy brain function and provide essential brain-supporting nutrients.

Phosphatidylserine is an essential phospholipid (cell membrane lipid) found in the brain. Studies suggest that it can help learning, memory and attention problems and may improve cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's and dementia. One study reveals that patients given phosphatidylserine demonstrated improved memory and mental ability.

The herbs gingko biloba, huperzine A, bacopa and vinpocetine enhance blood flow and energy production in the brain while improving mental performance and cognitive function. Acetyl L-carnitine contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which is required for mental function, and may improve slow down the degeneration of brain cells.

Free radical damage may contribute to the degeneration of brain cells. Alzheimer's patients often have low levels of vitamin C. Studies suggest that supplementing with antioxidant vitamins C and E can boost immunity, neutralize harmful free radicals and lower the risk of developing Alzheimer's.
