The Electrician is an herbal formula designed to help support healthy cognition, mood and memory. This product supplies herbs and extracts that have been shown to work through a variety of mechanisms, including helping to maintain proper levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, as well as supporting healthy neurons and nerve impulse transmission. The Electrician contains a wildcrafted blueberry complex, a novel berry extract that in addition to blueberries uses extracts of huckleberries and bilberries. This product also features vinpocetine, Huperzine A (a naturally occurring alkaloid compound), the green tea polyphenol EGCg, and the Ayurvedic herb Bacopa monnieri.

NATURAL SUPPORT FOR COGNITION, MOOD, MEMORY, AND FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH COGNITIVE DEFICITS

The Electrician supplies herbs and extracts that have been shown to work through a variety of mechanisms including acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity, enhancing nerve impulse transmission, aiding in the repair of damaged neurons, and decreasing Aβ protein aggregation, among others; which help to support those with cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.

The Electrician may help support overall brain health in those with the following:
• Cognitive dysfunction • Vascular dementia • Alzheimer’s disease • Suboptimal learning performance • Memory deficits

Highlights

Huperzine A (HupA) is a naturally-occurring alkaloid compound found in the club moss Huperzia serrata, which upon ingestion acts as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. The deficiency in cholinergic neurotransmission in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), among other mechanisms, can lead to symptoms of this disease. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors act to increase available acetylcholine through the inhibition of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. Improved cholinergic neurotransmission can manifest in stabilization or a less than expected decline in cognition, function and behavior.

Bacopa monnieri is a well-known and frequently used remedy in India and has been used as a nerve tonic in Ayurvedic medicine since the 6th century. It is described as “enhancing the mind” and is considered to promote improved mental function. As such, most modern research has focused on the mechanisms behind these properties. Active compounds, including triterpenoid saponins and their bacosides, are responsible for bacopa’s ability to enhance nerve impulse transmission. The bacosides aid in the repair of damaged neurons by enhancing protein kinase activity, neuronal synthesis, reduction of beta amyloid levels, restoration of synaptic activity, and ultimately the improvement of nerve impulse transmission.

In human trials Bacopa monnieri has demonstrated improvements in various parameters of cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, including orientation of place, time and person, reading comprehension, and other parameters of memory, attention and mood.15 In healthy older adults Bacopa was also shown to improve various markers of cognitive function.

Vinpocetine is a highly potent vasodilator, acting by direct relaxation of the vascular smooth muscle. Vinpocetine enhances cerebral blood flow in patients with cerebrovascular disorders. Vinpocetine has been shown to cross the blood brain barrier, protect neurons from the toxicity of glutamate and N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA), decrease platelet and red blood cell aggregation, and increase red blood cell membrane flexibility in stroke patients as well as in healthy subjects. In those patients suffering from mild to moderate vascular dementia, vinpocetine benefited memory, learning, and global clinical measures of cognitive performance.

In three studies of older adults with memory problems associated with poor brain circulation or dementia-related disease, vinpocetine produced significantly more improvement than a placebo in performance on global cognitive tests reflecting attention, concentration, and memory.

Recommended Use:
Take two capsules per day with meals, or as directed by a health care practitioner.
