GalantaMind Plus is a multinutrient braincare formulation designed by life extension scientists Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw for their own daily use as a means to help preserve and protect memory function. GalantaMind Plus is the core product in their Mind Food Brain Maintenance Toolkit which also includes Memory Upgrade II and Omega-3 HeartFelt. GalantaMind Plus features galantamine, a photonutrient extracted from the common snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis), daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus L.)., and spider lily (Lycoris radiata) among other plants. As an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEl), galantamine competitively blocks the premature, age related breakdown of the natural neurotransmitter acetylcholine, an essential molecule that supports memory function. Unlike other AChEis, galantamine also enhances nicotinic receptor activity, an effect long known to influence memory and intellectual activity. Galantamine is the same memory-function enhancer used 3200 years ago by the Greek hero Odysseus, the champion of memory and the enemy of forgetfulness. GalantaMind Plus also contains green tea polyphenols and turmeric (each with it own system of antioxidants: each operating together as a system), along with vitamin C, vitamin E, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and lithium (an important brain food found in the bottled waters of American and European health spas) and quercetin.*

Several years ago I noticed mental changes in my husband. His doctor didn't think anything was wrong even enough to test him, which at that time Alzheimers was only treated after many symptoms were present making the disease obvious. After searching the web I found the original galantamine and he has been taking that for several years now, probably 6 or 8. Two years ago we added some other nutrients and Namenda, a prescription drug. He is now very stable and only rarely has episodes of alzheimers symptoms. If I hadn't given him this product, he would be in a nursing homeor passed away by now. His brother just passed away from Alzheimers, his mother several years ago. When the new plus product came out he was started on that. Thank you so much for this product. It is life saving.
My father recently passed away from Alzheimer's. His two brothers died of it also, of early-onset alzheimer's, diagnosed by MRI, as did my grandmother. When I, in my late 50's, began developing some recall problems and occasional confusion, I must admit I panicked. I began taking this product, and noticed an immediate difference. At this point I feel completely confident of my brain power, have no problem recalling words or names, and the feeling of occasional confusion about what has happened in the recent past is GONE. In my own mind I am sure that this is not a placebo effect. I cannot rate it too highly. If this product is too pricey for you, try huperzine A, much cheaper and also terrific. My bias toward the galantamine, however, is research I have read that indicates the beneficial effects of galantamine last up to 36 months even after it is discontinued. This means there must be some brain chemistry that galantamine improves almost permanently. The lithium in it is important because it is both a stimulator of the growth of grey matter in the brain, and it blocks the formation of tau tangles, which also figure in the alzheimer's pathology. Best wishes to all who are worried about this dread disease.
