About Brain Shield™ and the importance of cGP

Its time to understand and invest in the health of your brain

On a daily basis, our bodies naturally produce the Key Brain Nutrient cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP). This Key Brain Nutrient normalises the insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) function within the brain. This nutrient is a key to brain fitness and whole of body health and wellness.

As we age our bodies produce less of the key brain nutrient cGP required to sustain normal brain function.

Research has shown that low levels of cGP may be found in neuro-degenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s and strokes.

“A world first” natural and safe source of cGP

New Zealand Blackcurrants naturally contain a high level of a Key Brain Nutrient – cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP) – which is beneficial to the ageing body and mind.

Brain Shield™ is made from selected New Zealand blackcurrants high in cGP, providing a natural supplement of this key brain nutrient to help maintain your health and active lifestyle.

The research

Associate Professor Dr Jian Guan-MD. PhD found New Zealand Blackcurrants contain high levels of cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP) Key Brain Nutrient that normalises the insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) function, a key to whole body health, wellness and brain fitness hormone.

Dr. Guan, who has researched cGP for nearly 30 years, says low levels of cGP are commonly found in people with age-related issues. She states; “cGP can decline with age, so the high natural levels of this nutrient found in New Zealand Blackcurrants can help maintain these levels.”

Dr. Guan says “I like to call it maintenance of ageing. This finding about New Zealand Blackcurrants is very exciting because it is something completely natural with the ability to maintain and support a healthy ageing body and mind.”

Dr. Guan came across “The power of New Zealand Blackcurrants” by chance when researching levels of cGP in patients who had New Zealand Blackcurrants added to their diets. She found increased levels of cGP after only 4 weeks of a daily measured amount of Blackcurrant.

Our bodies produce the Key Brain Nutrient cGP naturally. cGP is essential for maintaining the function of an ageing body and mind. Deficient cGP function can lead to early onset and more rapid progress of brain ageing and other age-related conditions, such as Rett Syndrome.

Vitality™ New Zealand Brain Shield™ is a patented natural plant-based solution made from New Zealand Blackcurrants with other nutrients that have been specifically formulated to deliver the average daily dose required to maintain an optimum level of the Key Brain Nutrient cGP in the body as we age.
