It used to be thought that neurologic decay in aging individuals was inevitable however recent research has proved this old way of thinking to be wrong.

We all know that continually challenging the brain by doing puzzles or learning new skills is important for minimizing cognitive decline however today I’m going briefly discuss a couple of amazing compounds you may want to consider if staying sharp for many years to come is important to you.

The first is an amino acid.

It’s fairly common knowledge now that neurites can be regenerated by a special kind of carnitine known as Acetyl-l-carnitine-arginate.

Yes, we can regrow brain cells.

Acetyl-l-carnitine-arginate has been shown to stimulate brain neurites by as much as 19.5%!

The research on this patented form of carnitine is impressive and to learn more about it see New Brain Regeneration Nutrient Grows Neurites.

The second is magnesium.

It’s well known that magnesium plays an important role in cognitive function however the problem with magnesium is that is not readily absorbed into the brain.

That all changed when researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology discovered that a highly absorbable form of magnesium known as magnesium-L-threonate accumulates in the brain and helps to reverse brain aging by restoring  neuronal and synapses function.

The result could potentially translate into an 18% short term and even greater long term memory increase resulting in a more youthful learning capacity.
