About Ceriva

Ceriva is a nutritional formula that has been specifically designed to improve memory, slow brain aging, and support cognition. It is widely known and scientifically proven that free radicals damage is the cause of many chronic health problems, such as inflammatory disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and cataract. Antioxidants are the best means to prevent the formation of radicals, which cause tissue and brain cell damage. Ceriva provides such antioxidant protection to the brain cells. In turns, this supports the good health of the brain and enhances cognitive and memory skills.

How Ceriva Works

Ceriva is a Metagenics product, and as such, it is made from high-quality, natural materials that maintain their health benefits intact throughout the various production stages from selection to packaging. Through the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the formula helps improve the function of the brain cells and protects the metabolic brain function.

What Is Acetylcholine?

Acetylcholine is one of the most powerful neurotransmitters in the brain that works in a variety of ways to support our ability to use logic, our linguistic skills, our creativity, and our working memory. It is also vital for mobility, coordination, and muscle memory.

According to recent research, the brain can grow new cells and repair damaged ones (aka neuroplasticity) well into adulthood as opposed to a previous notion that wanted the brain to grow primarily during childhood. Acetylcholine can promote brain repair and brain regeneration after damage (i.e., due to an injury), which, subsequently, also affects memory and learning. Lack of acetylcholine can lead to cognitive decline (the acetylcholine levels of some Alzheimer’s patients have been reported to be up to 90% lower than average). So, we can assume that a deficiency or decline of acetylcholine can be responsible for memory loss.

Symptoms of Acetylcholine Deficiency

People with acetylcholine deficiency usually experience the following symptoms:

  • Have a hard time finding the right words when they write or talk.
  • Difficulty in using logical thinking & doing math problems.
  • Get distracted easily and lose thought process during presentations or conversations.
  • Difficulty in staying focused when reading a book.
  • Struggling to follow the storyline of a movie.
  • Trouble remembering things from books they have just read.

They may also exhibit the following:

  • They lose things more often than before.
  • They feel tired all the time.
  • They react slower than the average person.
  • They often get lost and can’t follow directions easily.
  • They have cravings for fatty foods.
  • They have bad muscle tone.
  • They have ADHD symptoms, like agitation, rambling thoughts, lack of focus, and restlessness.

The good news is that improving acetylcholine synthesis can help regain healthy brain functioning.

Ceriva Ingredients

Colostrinin– It is a proprietary PRP (proline-rich polypeptide*) complex that has a stabilizing effect on cognitive function in patients with memory problems and age-related disorders. It also provides cells with effective antioxidant production.

Huperzine A – It offers multi-dimensional support for neurological health and is also found to alleviate oxidative stress, reduce neuroinflammation, improve memory capacity, and enhance cognitive function after serious brain injury. This ingredient derives from a memory-boosting plant extract (a type of firmoss called Huperzia serrata).

*Proline-rich polypeptide is derived from the milk given to a newborn mammal as their first nourishment. This complex is also proven to influence a wide variety of biological functions, including the regulation of tissue and cell processes.

Other ingredients are:

Croscarmellose sodium – A component made from cotton fibers or wood pulp that is used as a disintegrant in pharma formulations.

Stearic acid - A fatty acid that comes from vegetable fats and provides cell energy and contributes to the development and maintenance of the nervous system.

Silica - An essential nutrient that has been found to positively affect brain function. Also has antioxidant properties.

Also, microcrystalline cellulose and Huperzia serrata powder extract. The formula contains milk.

Important Notes:

  • The recommended serving size is one Ceriva tablet daily unless otherwise instructed by your healthcare practitioner. In any case, do not exceed 2 tablets per day.
  • The formula is not recommended for nursing or pregnant women.
  • Operate and/or drive machinery with caution.
  • Store in a cool, dry place, out of reach of children.

Avoid taking Ceriva if you:

  • Are taking cholinergic medications or acetylcholinesterase inhibitors or blood-thinning medications or immunomodulators.
  • Have peptic ulcer, chronic respiratory condition, asthma, benign prostatic hypertrophy, cardiac arrhythmia, seizure disorder, malabsorption syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Have suppressed immune function.

Side effects are rare and may include mild mood change, temporary anxiety, dizziness, sleep disturbance or fatigue.
