Every new venture has a story behind its inauguration and mine is no different. People have asked me “Why have you started your new production company with a memory pill? Well, this is my story.
Many years ago I was the Medical Director for the Alzheimer’s Foundation and as such began getting a lot of patients with the disease. While running routine laboratory tests I noticed that almost all of the patients had low Pregnenalone levels. Then I started testing some of their relatives and noticed that they too had low levels of Pregnenalone, so much so that the correlation was in excess of 80%. So curiously I started ordering Pregnenalone levels on people who had no symptoms and no family history of Alzheimers and much to my surprise almost none of them had low levels of Pregnenalone. I observed these phenomena for almost 20 years and it has held true ever since.
Somewhere in the early 90’s a young woman in her 30’s whose mother had contracted the disease came in complaining of memory loss. I ordered a Pregnenalone level and as predicted it was very low. I started her on Pregnenalone and within a week she called me back thanking me for getting her memory back. With slight variations I have seen this story play itself out innumerable times in my practice over the last 20 years.
The second part of the story actually occurred with me. I had sinus problems for many many years and finally ended up having my first major surgery a few years ago. After the operation my mind was “cloudy” and “slow” for almost three months. So I started looking into what I could do to get my usual mental “speed” back. During my research I found out that in Germany alpha lipoic acid is a prescription drug while here in the U.S. it is over the counter. Over there it is used prior to surgery to prevent post operative memory loss. Well as luck would have it I required a second major sinus surgery and this time I was ready. I took my alpha lipoic acid for two weeks prior to surgery and much to my great surprise I woke up ready to do a hundred yard mental dash. No cloudiness whatsoever.
Third story. While at a A4M (American Academy of Anti Aging) meeting I attended a lecture given by a Brazilian Physician on the effects of so called “brain nutrients” and PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scans. He measured the activity in the cortex of the brain (the thinking part) pre nutrient and post nutrient. Scan after scan, each so called brain nutrient had no effect on cortical activity. Then came the Phosphatidyl Serine (PS) slide and the cortex lit up like a light bulb. In fact no other nutrient that he measured had the same effect. This proved to me that if you want to increase the activity and blood flow to the thinking part of your brain you had best take PS.
So of course I had to try it. My brain felt like it was back in college, everything I read seemed to stick and all I wanted to do was keep on reading. And I have heard this story over and over again also.
It seems lately that more and more of my friends and acquaintances are complaining about their memory, so I had been telling them that they should take some or all of the items below. I went to our local “health food store” to look at bottles that I could recommend and much to my chagrin I could not find one that incorporated all of the things I wanted to recommend. That was the final impetus to make my own and make one that incorporated all the ingredients that could really make a difference.
