Improve Your Memory and Fend Off Alzheimer's

Posted by John Coppola on 07 Aug, 18

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disorder affecting an estimated 5.3 million Americans. Although it’s commonly associated with ‘old age’ research shows that signs of age-related memory loss can begin to surface at a much younger age than previously believed.

A study published in the British Medical Journal looked at more than 7,000 civil servants in London between 45 and 70 years of age. As expected, the researchers found evidence of decline in cognitive functioning in all memory categories among the older age groups (60+). The shocking discovery was that people as young as 45 also began to exhibit a decline in cognitive functioning. Alarming brain health statistics show:

By 2025, it is estimated that the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s will rise to 7.1 million—a 40 percent increase!

Although there are currently 5 prescription medications approved by the FDA to treat Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, all the medical research reveals none of these medications reverse the cognitive disease. They merely manage the symptoms, at best.

The good news is, there are things you can do at any age to prevent age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s—and the sooner you get started on them, the better.

This one standout nutritional supplement has been showing promising results in scientific research for memory enhancement and improved cognitive protects against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Acetyl l-carnitine

Acetyl l-carnitine (ALCAR) is an amino acid that’s produced naturally in the body. Its function is to produce energy for the cells and protect the nerves. In essence - it nurtures the brain's delicate neurological system, and promotes the synthesis of neurotransmitters essential for memory, thought, and mental vigor. Unlike plain l-carnitine (an amino acid), acetyl-l-carnitine is fat soluble and highly active in nerves; it offers superior protection from stress and excitotoxic damage to all nerves in the body.

An important attribute of AlCAR is... it’s also a powerful antioxidant that can cross the blood-brain barrier. As a result, it benefits the brain by reducing oxidative stress and removing accumulated toxins.

Oxidative stress and toxin accumulation can interfere with brain cell energy production, leading to mood imbalances or depression, memory loss and significant cognitive decline.

ALCAR also helps your brain metabolize fat and cholesterol preventing a build up in your brain leading to impaired function. This cleanup function makes it less likely that cholesterol will form into beta-amyloid plaques, a main culprit in Alzheimer’s.

Do you know, excess alcohol damages brain cells, in part, by leaving a trail of damaged fatty particles. These particles produce free radicals (oxidative toxins) that cause even more damage. ALCAR has been shown to clean up these fatty particles, preventing the damage caused by excess alcohol intake.

ALCAR’s ability to support healthy brain mechanisms is integral to healthy memory, learning, computation, analysis, perception, and many other cognitive functions.

Research on Acetyl l-carnitine

A double-blind, placebo-controlled human study showed improvement in patients with early neurodegenerative disease symptoms after 12 weeks of supplementation with ALCAR. Several additional studies involving neurodegenerative disease markers and poor brain blood flow observed improvement in subjects with ALCAR supplementation.

Studies show Acetyl L Carnitine supplementation stops the progression of inflammation and free radical damage in the brain. It also has been shown to reverse the damage, caused in aging, thereby functioning as an anti-aging nutrient for the brain.

Research has shown a therapeutic dosage of ALCAR is between 1000 mg to 3000 mg daily.

Other Amazing Benefits of Acetyl l-carnitine

Scientific studies have revealed a wide array of health benefits derived from taking Acetyl L Carnitine.

  1. Acetyl L Carnitine (ALCAR) has been shown to prevent Peripheral neuropathy and nerve damage
  2. ALCAR lessens neuropathy symptoms (burning, numbness, tingling, pins & needles, pain).
  3. ALCAR protects peripheral nerves and brain cells from damage caused by chemotherapy drugs without hindering the effectiveness of the drug.
  4. ALCAR has antinociceptive effects thereby reducing pain
  5. Acetyl L Carnitine assists all nerves in the process of regeneration (regrowth)
  6. ALCAR protects the nerves from glucose damage in diabetes and reduces incidence of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN).
  7. Acetyl L Carnitine improves heart health and protects against heart disease


When we came up with the formulation of NUPHORIA Blue, our main goal was reversing and preventing peripheral nerve damage. We had no idea what a powerhouse of benefits this supplement would have, aside from repairing damaged peripheral nerves. Each day, there is more and more research published on the vast benefits of Acetyl L Carnitine. Taking NUPHORIA Blue to boost memory, sharpen cognitive function and preventing age-related dementia and Alzheimer’s is a No-Brainer (pun intended). If you suffer from burning, numbness, tingling, pins & needles or pain in your feet or hands, then taking NUPHORIA Blue is a must. If you suffer from pre-diabetes or diabetes, you should be taking NUPHORIA Blue to prevent Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN). Also, if you are about to undergo chemotherapy, or are currently undergoing chemotherapy, starting NUPHORIA Blue is imperative.
