What does cognitive health mean to you? Does it mean a reduced risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life? Does it mean having a better memory and sharper focus today? The good news is, after reading today’s article you’ll learn how a new product maybe able to offer you both.

Over the past several years researchers have begun to better understand the role played by BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) on cognitive function. BDNF is a powerful protein found in the brain that is integral to a variety of processes including learning, memory, alertness and mood. Like growth hormone for the brain, BDNF plays a key role in neurogenesis, the production of new brain cells. Studies find people with higher levels of BDNF have a dramatically lower chance of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life.

So if higher BDNF levels mean a lower risk of cognitive disorder, what can we do? Recent research shows a unique patented extract of the whole coffee fruit can increase BDNF better than any other botanical available. It’s called Neurofactor and is now available in two new products from Garden of Life - Memory & Focus for Young Adults and Memory & Focus for Adults 40+. Both contain 100mg of the patented coffee fruit extract used in the studies.

In addition to the coffee fruit, Garden of Life has further enhanced each of these new products with age specific botanical blends clinically shown to enhance memory, recall, processing speed and other key metrics of cognitive function. I was so excited I started taking one of them the moment it arrived. For more information on which product I chose, watch my product review.
