Full Prescribing Info
MEMORX IQ Plus is a vitamin preparation containing acetyl L-carnitine (ALC), an amino acid for brain development. ALC improves the brain's cognitive functions by boosting the levels of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine (ACh) is one of the main neurotransmitters involved in memory and mental functioning.
MEMORX IQ Plus also contains zinc, which has an immunity-building effect. Zinc has an antioxidant role in the CNS. The brain contains substantial concentrations of zinc. Zinc deficiency has been seen to affect cognitive development and low zinc levels had been linked to low attention span and memory impediment. Zinc supplementation is needed to prevent and correct zinc deficiency.
MEMORX IQ Plus contains vitamin A, which is considered an important cognitive aid. Vitamin A deficiency has been seen to severely affect spatial learning and memory tasks. Vitamin A supplementation is needed to prevent and correct vitamin A deficiency.
MEMORX IQ Plus contains B-complex vitamins, which are important in proper brain functioning and have been known to fight cognitive dysfunction. Vitamin B1 is essential for the health of the brain and nerve tissue. It is also involved in the chemical reactions that cause the release of ACh in the brain.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) functions in >50 metabolic reactions, especially those producing energy. Deficiency in this vitamin produces memory failure.
Vitamin B6 acts as an antioxidant. It is required for the conversion of amino acids into neurotransmitters in the brain. For example, the conversion of phenylalanine to norepinephrine (NE) requires vitamin B6. Norepinephrine is involved with thought and memory. It is the chemical messenger that plays an important role in mental functioning. It seems to be specifically involved with long-term memory. A decrease in NE also corresponds to a decrease in mental acuity or mental sharpness.
Vitamin B12 is a co-enzyme that is particularly important in the brain and nerve tissues. It is necessary for the synthesis of RNA and DNA. It is required to build the walls of brain cells. Vitamin B12 is essential in myelin sheath formation around the nerves that is important for their health and function. This is important because without the myelin sheath, the nerves cannot transmit their messages at optimal speed (reduced speed in processing information). With vitamin B12 supplementation, alertness, learning ability and behavior are improved and mentality and memory are enhanced.
MEMORX IQ Plus is enriched with taurine, which helps in the mental and visual development of growing children. Taurine is a major stabilizing ingredient of brain cell membranes, keeping electrical current from spreading out of control throughout the brain. Taurine modulates the enzymes involved in energy metabolism in the brain. Through its ability to preserve the glutathione peroxidase system, recognized for its potent antioxidant capabilities, taurine protects cells from lipid peroxidation and deleterious membrane structure changes.
Fortified with lysine, MEMORX IQ Plus enhances appetite of children. Lysine gives energy to the body and is of value in upgrading utilization of food low in quality protein.
MEMORX IQ Plus is a health supplement designed for the optimum mental development of children.
