The Significance of Cognitive Health
Cognitive function encompasses not only our capacity to think, learn, and remember but also our ability to reason, make decisions, plan, concentrate, and discern right from wrong. With this in mind, it becomes evident that maintaining optimal cognitive function is essential. Cognitive decline is a natural aspect of aging, much like the various other forms of wear and tear on the human body. However, what about cognitive health in younger individuals?
Balancing busy professional lives with multiple tasks can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. For example, some people may struggle to maintain enough energy to complete a full day of work, exercise, spend time with their families, and achieve a healthy work-life balance. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy or falling behind.
The natural aging process can sometimes result in the accumulation of certain substances in our neuron pathways. As the human body ages, β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) in the brain may naturally accumulate. This could potentially contribute to a perception of cognitive decline. Aging is an inescapable part of human life.
The Science Behind Acteolin™:
Various research articles have studied acteoside for its potential to reduce β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) and tau protein phosphorylation buildup in the human brain, which may be associated with compromised cognitive and memory functions.
Research studies have also explored acteoside’s potential to support acetylcholine levels, the primary neurotransmitter in the human nervous system, by possibly decreasing its breakdown and increasing its synthesis in the human brain.
Acteoside has been examined for its potential to reduce a master inflammatory cytokine nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), which may be linked to inflammatory lung functions. Collagen buildup is associated with fibrotic lung disorders.
Additionally, acteoside may potentially reduce collagen buildup in the lung by decreasing transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) production. Acteoside has been studied for its potential to reduce histamine release and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) and interleukin 4 (IL-4) production in cells that may be linked to breathing obstruction.
Acteoside’s potential to induce hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) in epithelial cells has been studied, and it may be involved in organ regeneration, wound healing, and embryogenesis. Acteoside may also potentially support retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) levels, which are essential for normal visual functions. RPE cells tend to decrease with aging.
Acteolin™ is NuLiv’s proprietary acteoside (a caffeoyl phenylethanoid glycoside (C29H36O15)). Pharmacological, in-vitro, animal, and human clinical studies have examined acteoside for its potential to:
- Support cognitive and memory functions by potentially reducing β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) accumulation and abnormal tau protein phosphorylation and by protecting the central cholinergic system in the brain.*
- Support lung functions by potentially reducing nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) induced inflammation, collagen accumulation, and histamine release in lung tissue.*
- Support retinal functions by potentially promoting hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) that may be involved in organ regeneration, wound healing, embryogenesis, and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) that is essential for normal visual functions.*
