)-- Memory loss (http://www.prevagen.com) symptoms showed an improvement across all parameters in the Prevagen Quality of Life Study conducted by Quincy Bioscience, makers of Prevagen®, a brain cell protection supplement. The study concluded the impact of Prevagen on memory loss reduces forgetfulness, helps word recall, reduced the need for reminders, and improved memory in 90 days.
The Prevagen Quality of Life Study was an open-label of 56 generally healthy participants over a 90-day period measuring changes in overall cognition, quality of sleep, energy, mood, pain, and general health.
The results of the study show improved performance across all parameters, illustrating that Prevagen provides a clear benefit in the area of memory, especially for those who reported having poor memory starting at Day 0 (baseline) of the trial.
Prevagen (10 mg) was taken daily by the trial participants. The study showed a statistically significant improvement in memory after 30 days. 57% of participants had improvement in general memory, 51% in retailing information, 84% in remembering driving instructions, and 66% in word recall.
The brain contains calcium-binding proteins that protect the brain cells and under normal functioning, many cellular processes are closely regulated.
Calcium-binding proteins regulate calcium to keep a balance within the nervous system. As people age, an individual’s production of calcium-binding proteins is reduced. As the calcium-binding proteins decline, calcium is not as closely regulated, leaving brain cells vulnerable. Excess calcium can result in neuronal cell damage and memory impairment.
“Fortunately, Prevagen provides a supplemental source of calcium-binding proteins to protect the cells, helping to restore calcium balance,” explains Mark Underwood, President and co-founder of Quincy Bioscience.
”The calcium-binding proteins that protect our brain cells deplete with age. Prevagen is the only all-natural brain supplement that can replace these proteins and prevent memory loss,” continues Mark Underwood. “This is one more study we’ve conducted with Prevagen showing the benefits a calcium-binding protein supplement on memory loss symptoms, by helping to keep brain cells alive which can result in a healthier brain, a sharper mind, clearer thinking and better memory.

Memory loss (http://www.prevagen.com) supplement Prevagen, is manufactured by Quincy Bioscience (http://www.quincybioscience.com) a biotechnology company based in Madison, Wisconsin. Quincy Bioscience is focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel compounds to fight the aging process. The company's products focus on restoring calcium balance related to neurodegenerative disorders and other destructive age-related mechanisms. Quincy Bioscience is developing health applications of the jellyfish protein apoaequorin for dietary supplement and pharmaceutical products. The company’s first product, Prevagen (www.prevagen.com), was launched in the fall of 2007 and is intended to supplement the loss of critical calcium-binding proteins depleted in the normal course of healthy aging.
