Life Extension Dopa-Mind: Dopa-Mind is a unique formula that helps promote healthy dopamine levels, a neuronutrient known to maintain youthful mental performance.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and cognition. But dopamine levels decline as we age, corresponding to a decrease in mental performance. Dopa-Mind is a unique formula that helps promote healthy dopamine levels to help support and maintain youthful cognitive health1.
Benefits of Dopa-Mind:
- Promotes youthful brain dopamine levels with a wild green oat extract1
- Encourages mental acuity measurable using standardized cognitive testing1
- Supports cerebral artery dilation for healthy brain blood flow3
Dopa-Mind contains a standardized extract of wild green oats which inhibits the monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) enzyme. This is important, because age-related decline in dopamine is largely caused by rising levels of MAO-B. Published studies show that by inhibiting MAO-B, this bioactive wild green oat extract promotes healthy dopamine levels. This MAO-B inhibiting mechanism has been shown to support mental acuity and longevity.1
In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in aging volunteers, researchers demonstrated that 1,600 mg of the same wild green oat extract found in Dopa-Mind produced a 74% improvement on a standard test of mental acuity.1
Research shows that 800 mg of the same extract supported mental processing time and speed.2 In other research, this extract exhibited support for cerebral vasodilator function, as well as endothelial function both of which play roles in brain health. 1
The wild green oat extract in Dopa-Mind has been shown to promote more youthful cognitive performance in those where it is showing signs of waning, help maintain cognitive function in those whose minds are still healthy, and may support longevity.4
