There has been a longstanding awareness that amyloid plaques in the brain are a major causative factor in the development of cognitive problems, including Alzheimer's Disease. However, recent research indicates that another major contributing factor in cognition is vascular impairment in the brain.(1) Current research suggests links between heart disease and dementia.(2) In fact, damage to the small blood vessels in the brain may significantly increase risk of cognitive problems with aging.
In recognition of the vascular component, we now offer a new specially priced package for brain health and maintenance which addresses both areas of concern. The new product is called NEURO PERPETUAL™ and combines support for brain protection and healthy blood flow to the brain.
