Ingredient Spotlight: NeoGene Complex
Just because it's not Mental Health Awareness Month anymore doesn't mean that mental health is any less important. On the contrary, the state of the world today is calling attention to the imperative nature of a strong support system to keep anxiety and despair at bay. We want to shine a light on two products in the U.S. Doctors’ Clinical lineup that are formulated with natural ingredients to encourage mental and physical vitality, enhance mood and cognition, and extend the life of cells by defending them from oxidative stress.
These products are NeoGene and NeoGene Advanced, which both contain a proprietary blend of 19 effective antioxidant and anti-aging vitamins, minerals, and botanical extracts for natural yet potent support for healthy cellular function and mental acuity. With no gluten, shellfish, or genetically modified ingredients, these USDC products help you pursue your health and wellness goals with total peace of mind.
NeoGene and NeoGene Advanced both include 754mg of our clinically proven NeoGene Complex, a formula composed of five ingredients that have been studied for their health- and cognition-boosting benefits in prestigious universities all over the world. Alone, each ingredient boasts an impressive nutrient profile. Together, these five ingredients support healthy cell replication and provide antioxidant protection to slow the cell degradation that accelerates aging.
St. John’s Wort
Also known as hypericum perforatum, St. John’s wort is a flowering herb with natural mood-boosting properties that has been used in natural medicine for over 2000 years. The active compounds hyperforin and hypericin have applications as antidepressants, anticarcinogens, and antimicrobial and virus-inhibiting agents. While their function cannot be entirely explained by modern science, hyperforin and hypericin may help to regulate serotonin reuptake and increase the activity of interleukin-6 (a cytokine thought to play a key role in immune defense mechanisms like antibody production). Hyperforin also inhibits the reuptake of dopamine and norepinephrine and has demonstrated cognition-improving effects. Hypericin may prevent tumor growth and has shown promise in stroke research and the detection and treatment of cancer.1 Supplementing with St. John’s wort can improve health concerns and ailments like depression, anxiety, apathy, restless sleep and insomnia, and feelings of worthlessness.2 Extracts of the perennial plant possess neuroprotective abilities to prevent damage to the brain from toxic substances.
Dimethylaminoethanol, or DMAE, is a natural precursor to the brain activity-promoting neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine (Ach) enables the transmission of signals between nerve cells and regulates a variety of brain functions including REM sleep, pain responses, and muscle contractions.3 In addition to increasing the production of Ach, DMAE is thought to slow the effects of aging on the brain. It reduces the buildup of beta-amyloid plaque, a substance linked to loss of memory and the decline of mental acuity over time. DMAE also plays a role in repairing cell membranes and promoting cellular health. The compound may possess the ability to find and attack certain free radicals, and has demonstrated its capacity to positively influence mood, improve memory, and encourage overall healthy brain function. As a topical treatment, DMAE can reduce the visibility of fine lines and hydrate skin for a fuller, more youthful appearance.
If PABA sounds familiar, that’s probably because para-aminobenzoic acid has long been used as the active ingredient in sunscreen for its ability to provide protection from damaging UV rays. It’s a natural component of folic acid that helps maintain healthy skin and hair, supports energy and vitality, and participates in protein metabolism and red blood cell formation. PABA has been used to treat a number of skin conditions and may help to improve or lessen the symptoms of conditions like anemia, arthritis, and constipation.4
Rich in flavonoids and terpenoids that support healthy circulation, encourage neurotransmitter function, and possess powerful antioxidant properties to protect against premature aging, ginkgo biloba has been used medicinally for thousands of years. The dried green leaves of the maidenhair tree have been the subject of countless studies for the benefits they deliver to the brain. The uses of ginkgo biloba extend to treatments for blood disorders and support for eye health, and it may also help to soothe bladder infections and increase sexual energy. Research suggests that ginkgo biloba can improve memory and enhance one’s ability to perform common daily tasks.5 Certain extracts have been studied for their effects on dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease, and scientists theorize that the promotion of good circulation helps to improve brain activity and protect neurons from damage. One study demonstrated improved behavioral performance in adults aged 50 to 61 years old who were given ginkgo biloba extract over the course of 14 days, supporting the belief that ginkgo biloba is an effective treatment for working memory deficits experienced by elderly individuals.6
L-Glutathione can be found in every cell throughout the body. It’s known as the “master antioxidant” and it provides a powerful defense against toxins, free radicals, and the oxidative stress that contributes to premature aging, diabetes, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis.7 A combination of three amino acids, glutathione protects the brain by transporting harmful mercury out of brain cells. In addition to playing a role in building DNA and proteins, glutathione also supports healthy liver function by improving protein, enzyme, and bilirubin blood levels, especially in individuals with chronic fatty liver disease. Glutathione levels decline with age, and decreased amounts in the body may be linked with increased fat storage and decreased fat burning. Supplementing with glutathione can help resume fat burning processes and improve insulin resistance.7 This multipurpose antioxidant also boosts immunity and encourages the regeneration of other antioxidants like vitamins C and E.
