Jarrow Formulas®, Inc., a global wellness and nutritional product company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, has announced the launch of BrainBoost™ with clinically tested ingredients to deliver both short-term and long-term cognitive benefits.
One of the major ingredients in BrainBoost is Sharp-PS®GOLD, an activated form of Phosphatidylserine (PS), which has a conjugated complex of DHA (omega-3) fatty acid bound to the backbone of the PS. This complex is more bioactive because this form of PS is found naturally in the brain. PS is important for cell membrane fluidity and improves brain uptake of DHA. PS-DHA cannot be obtained from any vegan source and is the most clinically validated form of PS.
BrainBoost™ also contains ChocoMind™ (from Theobroma cacao), a patent-pending extract high in theobromine that has been shown to positively affect cognitive and motor functions, including reaction time.
Additionally, BrainBoost™ contains Vinpocetine which supports brain metabolism by increasing brain circulation, enhancing the cerebral synthesis of ATP, improving the utilization of oxygen and supporting the synthesis of several neurotransmitters that affect such critical brain functions as memory, recall, focus and mood.
“We are excited about Jarrow’s decision to make Sharp-PS®GOLD a major component of BrainBoost™,” says Elzaphan Hotam, CEO of Enzymotec USA, a biotechnology company that develops and produces innovative biofunctional ingredients and suppliers of Sharp-PS®GOLD. “We truly believe this is an important step for making this ingredient a standard for the entire cognitive supplement industry.”
