Unlike many other supplements on the market, Mind is not a conglomeration of isolated lab-manufactured vitamins and minerals. Instead, it is a whole food product that contains Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) harvested from Upper Klamath Lake. This organic Wild Microalgae® contains a plethora of naturally occurring nutrients such as antioxidants, chlorophyll, fatty acids, enzymes, minerals, proteins, and vitamins among many others.
Each summer, when the algae is in bloom, New Earth harvests this naturally occurring superfood and uses it to make real food supplements that are known to nourish the human body. Mind, a flagship product, is known for energizing brain activity, increasing mental alertness and enhancing the immunity of the body. So how does a supplement with one ingredient do all of these things?
The cell wall removal exposes the heart of the Wild Microalgae which contains different vitamins and minerals, phycocyanins, chlorophyll, and proteins. These nutrients are broken down during digestion and then become available for assimilation. The proteins in the algae are then broken down into amino acids, which are utilized by the body to form neuropeptides. Neuropeptides enable the communication of neurons with each other.
Mind provides the body with different nutrients that easily pass the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) to nourish the brain and the central nervous system. The BBB is formed by the brain capillary endothelial cells, a protective mechanism that limits or prevents dangerous substances from reaching the brain cells.
Proteins are made of different amino acids that have different functions in the body. One of their roles is in the manufacturing of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals that send information throughout the brain and body). Neurotransmitters also affect mood and the overall function of the nervous system. Because amino acids from Mind are easily transported through the BBB, damaged nerve cells can receive the nourishment they need.*
Keep in mind, not all proteins are equal. Whole, nutritious foods are the best source of amino acids, and it is important to get the full gamut that your brain needs for optimal health. Unfortunately, not all amino acids in plants and animals are equally bioavailable. Amino acids from some grains are almost impossible to digest due to the cellulose that coats proteins. On the other hand, animal protein is difficult for humans to digest due to its large size and molecular weight. Only small proteins or free amino acids can easily be absorbed. Mind contains over 20 types of amino acids.
The brain is the most undernourished part of the body, and while it only makes up 2 percent of the total body weight, it uses up to 20 percent of the entire body’s energy. Fortunately, New Earth’s Mind helps in supporting brain power by providing it with the nutrients it needs.* The removed cell wall allows greater access to amino acids which are the most important raw materials for neuropeptide buildup.
