)-- Memory loss (http://prevagen.com/MemoryLoss.html) study on brain health supplement, Prevagen, supports 2010 Older Americans Month theme, “Age Strong! Live Long!” The Prevagen Quality of Life Study was conducted by Quincy Bioscience, makers of Prevagen, a brain cell protection supplement. Study results of older Americans taking Prevagen show reduced forgetfulness, reduced need for reminders, help with word recall and improved memory in 30 days.
When Older Americans Month, (formerly Senior Citizens Month), was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans reached their 65th birthdays. In 2008, (the latest year for which data is available), the older population--persons 65 years or older--numbered 38.9 million. By 2030 there will be about 72.1 million older persons, more than twice their number in 2000. Persons reaching age 65 have an average life expectancy of an additional 18.6 years (19.8 years for females and 17.1 years for males).

“My life’s work is committed to helping older Americans ‘Age Strong, Live Long!’ and we have completed many neuroscience research studies to address the healthy brain aspect of this theme,” says Mark Underwood, neuroscience researcher and president of Prevagen’s manufacturer, Quincy Bioscience. “We have learned that the calcium-binding proteins that protect our brain cells deplete with age. We developed Prevagen which is the only all-natural brain supplement that can replace these proteins and prevent memory loss.”
Underwood, whose interest in neuroscience research began after witnessing two of his family members develop memory loss, says “The Prevagen Quality of Life Study 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.” To read the Prevagen Quality of Life Study visit http://www.prevagen.com/files/PRV_Memorystudy_packet.pdf.
