Astragalus is primarily known for its anti-aging properties, but it is also an effective antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune booster. Phosphatidylserine is a key building block for billions of cells in the brain. It may increase the levels of chemicals in the brain involved in memory and aid cellular information transfer. Additionally, it has a mood-enhancing and anti-ageing effect.
Panax ginseng extract is also a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant, with ginsenosides regulating inflammation and maintaining cellular health. These ingredients may slow down the ageing process, make the brain's cognitive functions more efficient, support mental health and have a mood-boosting effect. They support the immune system, boost energy levels and may reduce fatigue.

MORE ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
In herbal medicine the root is the most commonly used part of this plant. Astragalus has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for at least 2000 years.
The main active substances in Astragalus are flavonoids, saponins and alkaloids, which have telomerase-activating properties. Telomerase enzyme can re-lengthen telomeres (a protective cap called a telomere at the end of each DNA strand), thus rejuvenating our cells and extending their lifespan. Altogether, the active ingredients of Astragalus have been thoroughly investigated for 9 effects, including regulation of immune function, anti-ageing, anti-tumour, blood sugar lowering, blood lipid lowering, anti-fibrotic, antibacterial, radioprotective and antiviral effects.
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that performs many vital functions in the body's tissues and organs, but most importantly, it is a key building block for billions of brain cells. The results of several experiments show that the levels of this substance in the body decrease significantly with age, so it is worth paying attention to your daily intake to protect your body from cellular damage for many years to come. Research shows that phosphatidylserine may help slow and even reverse age-related cognitive decline, may be involved in the process of eliminating damaged or unnecessary cells, boost memory, increase concentration, speed and accuracy of thinking, help stabilise mood, reduce stress and anxiety, regulate cortisol levels produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress and support the maintenance of a healthy body weight.
Panax ginseng extract
Ginseng has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. The key to the effectiveness of Panax ginseng root is its main active ingredients – ginsenosides. Studies have shown that ginseng extracts and ginsenoside compounds can inhibit inflammation and increase the antioxidant capacity of cells and may also boost the immune system. It has also been shown that ginseng may be beneficial for mental function, help combat fatigue and help increase physical activity by reducing oxidative damage and increasing cellular energy production.
