As one gets older, blood flow to the brain and to peripheral tissue decreases. Diminished cerebral circulation can also result in vertigo, ringing in the ear, Alzheimer's symptoms, forgetfulness and depression. Mental Master is for cerebral vascular insufficiency and works by increasing blood flow into the head, brain and body, and getting the blood across the blood brain barrier. Since it assists memory, focus and cognition, it may help one to study, help memory and cognitive thinking and it works best when this vascular problem is present, especially with the elderly.

Mental Master stimulates the activity of serotonin, dopamine, and norepineprhine in the cerebral cortex, brain stem and hypothalamus, and increases the permeability of the blood brain barrier to precursors of dopamine and serotonin. This enhances the effects of these neurotansmitters on the brain and improves cognitive functions (thinking, analyzing, evaluating, calculating and planning), learning, attention span, memory and work productivity. In addition, it works as a limbic (emotional) brain tonic, it tonifies the stress axis (hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal axis) and increases stamina and alertness. This helps to keep the body and mind strong when under stress and also relieves fatigue and normalizes mood in depressed individuals. It is helpful for those exhausted from emotional upheaval or excessive work habits.

By protecting neurons against the harmful effects of reative oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide (NO), it helps ward off neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Mental Master is a great long-term support to help preserve future brain functions.
