Vitality® New Zealand Brain Health
The human body is constantly exposed to pollution, poor nutrition, ageing and stress, each of which will increase the risk of oxidative stress. The brain is particularly vulnerable to oxidative damage, which can break down the immune system, leading to illnesses including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Dementia. By taking Vitality® New Zealand Brain Health capsules you can expect improved blood flow to the brain which in itself can be expected to prevent vascular dementia, degenerative cerebrovascular diseases caused by a restriction of the blood supply in the brain.
More than that, scientific research has shown that you can expect the Vitality® New Zealand capsules to reduce the activity of a family of enzymes called monoamine oxidases, which regulates serotonin and dopamine concentrations in the brain. These chemicals are known to effect mood and cognition, and are the focus of both neurodegenerative symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease and mood disorders, including stress and anxiety.
New Zealand blackcurrants are the most nutrient dense, anthocyanin rich blackcurrant berry in the world and the blackcurrant berry has the highest concentration of natural anthocyanin of all sources (Figure 1). Here at Vitality® New Zealand we have developed a process to encapsulate a refined extract of the Blackcurrant berries with the highest concentration of anthocyanin yet available to the market at 472 mg NZ Blackcurrant Extract Currantex 35 and 78mg Vitamin C per capsule.
The health benefits of anthocyanins are outstanding but the benefits aren’t confined to anthocyanin as the Blackcurrant berry fruit has very high Vitamin C content1 including good levels of potassium, phosphorus, iron, manganese and Vitamin B5, and a broad range of other essential nutrients.
Scientific research by Harvard University (USA), University of East Anglia (UK), the Brain Performance & Nutrition Research Centre of Northumbria University (UK) and The New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research has consistently shown that Blackcurrants are good for keeping people mentally young and agile. Brain benefits identified by this collective research are:
- Improved mental performance;
- Improved concentration;
- Reduce stress & anxiety;
- Increased cognitive function;
- Reduced neurodegenerative symptoms;
- Parkinson’s support.
