About the Ingredients in NeuroProtek
“Flavonoids are a group of plant metabolites thought to provide health benefits through cell signalling pathways and antioxidant effects. These molecules are found in a variety of fruits and vegetables.” http://www.news-medical.net/health/What-are-Flavonoids.aspx
Flavonoids are natural molecules found mostly in green plants and seeds. Unfortunately, our modern life diet contains progressively fewer flavonoids and those that are consumed are difficult to absorb because they do not dissolve in water. Under these conditions, the average person cannot consume enough to make a positive health difference. There are approximately 3,000 flavonoids. Of those, NeuroProtek® contains three:
Luteolin (> 95% Pure) is a nutrient from a class of naturally occurring molecules known as bioflavonoids. Luteolin was incorporated in this formula after published papers showed it is important in the body as a free radical scavenger.
Quercetin ( > 95% Pure)is a natural non-acidic flavanoid. The quercetin used is NeuroProtek is obtained from the saphora plant. Algonot decisively choose not to use the more common and less expensive source of fava beans.
Rutin (> 95% Pure) is a glycoside of the flavonoid Quercetin. Like quercetin, rutin is extracted from the saphora plant and is a non-acidic natural flavonoid that adds additional anti-oxidant qualities. Rutin helps liberate quercetin in the intestine, making absorption easier. Rutin has been shown to be the strongest antioxidant in studies.
Olive Kernel Extract (Oil, Unprocessed, MicroFiltered) is a natural, potent low-acidic anti-oxidant. This unique oil (a lipid) plays an important role in NeuroProtek® as it is used to increase the absorbability of flavonoids. We use only virgin olive seed oil from the island of Crete, Greece.
Why the chosen flavonoids?
Flavonoids are naturally occurring compounds frequently found in green plants and seeds. In powder form, whether taken as pills, tablets or hard capsules, all flavonoids are difficult to absorb and are extensively metabolized to inactive ingredients in the liver. In fact, less than 10% of orally ingested flavonoids are absorbed. In addition, very few flavonoids are beneficial; instead, many others such as morin show no activity, while pycnogenol is weakly active (as compared to luteolin or quercetin) but could cause liver toxicity.
As an additional consideration, the most common commercial source of the flavonoid quercetin is fava beans, which can be detrimental to blood cells in those of Mediterranean origin (15%), who lack the enzyme glucose-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD). Quercetin and its closely, structurally related flavonoids – rutin and luteolin, have potent anti-oxidant actions.
