What is BDNF?
BDNF is an acronym for brain-derived neurotrophic factor. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is a protein and a member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors that support and promote neuroplasticity, the ability of the adult brain to reorganize its neural network by forming new connections.
How can a BDNF supplement support brain health? To increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor, a healthy diet and exercise are key. Additionally, specific nutrients can support the brain’s natural ability to generate BDNF. BDNF Essentials® is a comprehensive BDNF supplement designed to support the brain’s formation of nerve growth factors, such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which promote neuroplasticity, and neurogenesis.
This unique formulation promotes healthy:* Neuroplasticity
Brain cytokine levels
BDNF & neurogenesis (generation of new neurons)
Oxidative stress levels
Nrf2 (brain antioxidant)
Cell membranes & function
BDNF Essentials supplement mechanisms of action:
NeuroCyto protect™ Blend
Blend of five researched herbs that promote brain-derived neurotrophic factor formation and support healthy cytokine levels.*
Cognition Blend Blend of phosphatidylserine and Citicoline to support healthy cellular membrane function and cortisol levels.* What is the role of BDNF in the brain?
BDNF Essentials® is a comprehensive BDNF supplement designed to support neurological health. This unique formula leverages ingredients that have been shown to aid in the formation of nerve growth factors, such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is essential in supporting neuron health, neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to rewire itself after a traumatic brain injury), and neurogenesis (the growth of new neurons).
In addition to supporting cellular neurological health, this comprehensive formulation is also designed to support healthy cytokine levels within the brain, overall cognitive function, modulation of cortisol levels, and to support healthy brain activity with aging. BDNF Essentials® contains targeted herbs, mushrooms, and nutrients, which have been found to provide brain supporting and protective properties for memory, concentration, and cognitive processing. Research has shown that these BDNF supplement ingredients may promote the healthy production of nerve growth factors to support neuroplasticity.
By providing support for overall cognitive function as well as long-term neuron and cellular health BDNF Essentials® can nurture brain health, neuroplasticity, and mental wellness for patients seeking to promote the health of this vital organ.
Clinical research Researched Nutritionals® currently has a clinical human research study underway on BDNF Essentials®, and it will include various clinical and lifestyle measurements so the doctor and patients know what to expect when including this product in their cognitive protocol. Anecdotally, we have had doctors report very positive feedback from many patients.
