About Core4Life Advanced Memory Formula
Core4Life Advanced Memory Formula, available in soft gel form, contains a proprietary blend of chromium picolinate, PS and DHA. These ingredients have been scientifically tested for their ability to improve cognitive function:
-- Chromium picolinate is an essential trace mineral that promotes healthy blood sugar, which is important because glucose helps fuel our brain.
-- PS is a naturally occurring phospholipid nutrient essential to the functioning of all cells of the body, but is most concentrated in the brain. PS supports communication between brain cells and promotes improved memory.
-- DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid, most commonly found in fish oil, which maintains brain fluidity and may help in the maintenance of cognitive function.
Core4Life Advanced Memory Formula is manufactured according to strict Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. This product can be taken safely alone or with medication, with optimal results seen in 30 to 90 days. In addition, the chromium picolinate ingredient is deemed safe by the FDA and is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use in foods and supplements.
