Upgrade Your Brain's Hardware.

Your Brain is Elastic!

Previously, it was believed that the brain’s structure is hard-wired like a machine that does not change or grow. Thanks to recent research, we understand that new neurons are produced throughout adult life. Neuroscience fascinates us at Nooflux. We love how the field is constantly evolving and being expanded upon. Plus, learning more about it allows us keep our products at the forefront of brain health and development. If personal development helps upgrade your software, Neurotrophins help upgrade your hardware.

What are Neurotrophins?

Neurotrophins (Neuro- : related to nerves / -trophins : a hormone that releases other hormones) are a family of proteins that induce the survival, development, and function of neurons.

Three main types:

  • Brain derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF):  One of the most active neurotrophins in the brain. The BDNF protein is active in the hippocampus, cortex, and forebrain - areas vital to learning, memory, and higher-order thinking.  

  • Nerve Growth Factor (NGF): Responsible for ensuring the survival and proliferation of certain target neurons and reducing neuron degeneration.

  • Neurotrophin-3: Primarily involved with the development of new neurons that form from life experiences and memories (external stimuli)

Why is it important?

Neurotrophins are essential to brain health and function. Decreased levels of BDNF and NGF have been associated with impaired learning, aging and variety of neurological/mental conditions (depression, dementia, schizophrenia, etc.).

Neurotrophin levels decrease as we age, so it is important to take the necessary steps to support support your brain and keep these proteins at optimal levels. 

How do you increase it?

BDNF and NGF expression have shown to be significantly enhanced by environmental enrichment and appear to be the core reason why cognitive performance is enhanced by environmental enrichment. You can increase neurotrophin levels through aerobic exercise, nutrition and supplementation.  

We wanted our products to provide the best nutrients for the brain. That’s why all the ingredients in the Axon play a role in stimulating NGF & BDNF levels in the brain.
