Optimise your memory and mental performance with the natural brain nourishment of Swanson Ultra NeuroSilk with Brain Factor-7. Much like a high-performance engine, your brain works best when it gets premium-grade fuel. And NeuroSilk fuels your brain like nothing else can.
NeuroSilk features Brain Factor-7 (BF-7), a unique brain-nourishing peptide found naturally in silk. The Chinese have breeding silkworms for silk production for more than 5,000 years, and silkworm cocoons have been used for health purposes for nearly as long. In its raw state, silk consists of two main proteins, sericin and fibroin, with a glue-like sericin layer surrounding tough central filaments made of fibroin. BF-7 is produced through an enzymatic hydrolysis process that isolates silk's fibroin peptides to deliver purified, concentrated brain nourishment.
BF-7 is packed with glycine and alanine, which are important amino acids for healthy neurotransmitter function and cellular energy production, but the key to its brain-boosting power lies primarily in its unique physical structure. BF-7 peptides feature beta-pleated sheet amino acid sequences that enable them to interact with signaling receptors in cell and nuclear membranes. Their small size allows BF-7 peptides to readily cross the blood-brain barrier, where they can interact directly with beta-pleated sheet structures in brain cell membranes to support cognitive function. Outside of the brain, BF-7 can also have favorable interactions with beta-pleated protein components involved in healthy circulatory and insulin function.
The natural nourishment of BF-7 can provide a valuable mental boost for young and old alike. Human studies on the effects of BF-7 on memory and mental function conducted in Korea have shown positive results in healthy young adult, middle-aged and elderly subjects. Wherever you fall on the age spectrum, with NeuroSilk, you can give your brain a nutritional advantage to make the most of your mental capacities.
