an Alternative to Natural Health
Nature's Sunshine Products
Designed to provide the brain with maximum protection against free radical damage, Brain-Protex with Huperzine contains nutrients that support optimal brain health.
This formula contains huperzine, Ginkgo biloba, phos-phatidyl serine, choline, ethanolamine, inositol, lycopene, alpha lipoic acid and Rhododendron caucasicum. These herbs, nutrients and antioxidants protect the brain from damage, supply nutrients for maintenance of brain cells and enhance brain activity.
Huperzine (25 mcg. per capsule) is a substance that occurs naturally in Chinese club moss, a plant used in traditional Chinese medicine. It appears to block the enzyme acetyl-cholinesterase, helping to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter. People with Alzheimer's disease or memory trouble have characteristically low levels of acetylcholine.
The herb Ginkgo biloba (60 mg. per capsule) helps support circulation throughout the body as well as to and within the brain. Improved circulation may promote better concentration, memory and alertness. Ginkgo also protects capillaries and strengthens the blood/brain barrier, increasing resistance to unwanted invaders.
A blend (10mg. per capsule) of Phosphatidyl serine, choline, ethanolamine and inositol help support and protect proper brain function.
The powerful antioxidants lycopene and alpha lipoic acid (2.5 mg. per capsule) neutralize free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid may also play a role in long-term memory.
Rhododendron caucasicum is a potent free radical quencher that has been used for decades in Russia.
One capsule of Brain Protex provides 5 mg of Rhododendron caucasicum root extract. Rhododendron caucasicum is a unique plant among all other species of Rhododendron and is considered safe for human consumption. It is reported that some species Rhododendrons, mainly the flowers, contain grayanotoxins, which are not soluble in water and can be harmful. The root extract in our product is extracted with water. This 100% water-soluble extract does not contain grayanotoxins.

Chinese researchers recently discovered that a stan-dardized extract of huperzine helps improve learning and memory in animals. Similar improvements were observed when the compound was given to humans with Alzheimer’s disease.
Additional research shows that phosphatidyl serine can help improve cognitive measures in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Customer's Story: Memory Problems
"I stopped in The Herbs Place on recommendation of a friend to get some ideas for my mother who had been diagnosed with memory problems. I talked with Randal and also read some materials on the research table and decided to use BRAIN PROTEX to improve her memory since it was the most potent. She used it according to directions, and by the end of the first bottle the entire family could tell there was a difference in her memory and concentration. I just came back to buy two more bottles and wanted to let you know how excited I am that's there's something natural that is REALLY helping her." S. Mason
