New Benefits of Mind Revealed

There are a lot of reasons to love Mind, one of our flagship products—enhanced mood, improved concentration, better focus and attention to detail, and energized brain activity.* Now, you can add a boost of antioxidants and effective immune support to that list.

That’s right! A recent study conducted by NIS Labs last year found that the organic Wild Microalgae® used in Mind provides antioxidant protection and support for your innate immune system. 

Let’s start with the antioxidant portion of this study. As a quick review, antioxidants are molecules that help fight off unstable molecules like free radicals. If left alone, these unstable molecules can cause oxidative stress within your body, which can ultimately cause damage to your cells. Antioxidants combat this by stabilizing free radicals, thus neutralizing them so they can no longer cause damage. 

As part of this new study, they measured the antioxidants found in Mind, and the results showed that it contains a variety of water-soluble antioxidants that are easily available to your body at a cellular level. This means that when you take Mind, you are providing your body with plenty of the antioxidants it needs to help fight off free radicals and minimize damage from oxidative stress!

Not only does Mind provide your body with antioxidants, but this study also found that it can help protect, and even increase, the levels of reduced glutathione in your cells.

Glutathione is one of the most important antioxidants in the human body, and it can exist in an oxidized or reduced form. In its reduced form, glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant for combating oxidative stress from within your cells. 

This study by NIS Labs found that MIND has a statistically significant protective effect on the intracellular (within the cells) levels of the reduced form of glutathione. For cells that were under oxidative stress, the levels of reduced glutathione increased 25% over cells that had not been exposed to Mind. For cells that were unstressed, the ones that were nourished with Mind had 68% more reduced glutathione than those that were untreated! How amazing is that?! 

As if the antioxidant power of this product isn’t enough, the study also found that, because of its antioxidant power, Mind also supports your innate immune system. 

Your immune system is made up of a variety of different types of cells, with one of those types being known as phagocytes. Within the category of phagocytes, there are a number of different cells, such as monocytes and PMN cells, that all serve the same basic purpose—to absorb microbial pathogens and other small cells and particles. 

By doing this, these cells help protect your body by getting rid of harmful bacterial pathogens and dead or dying cells before they can harm your body. When activated, phagocytes engage in what is called phagocytosis, which essentially increases their capacity to do their job. This means that they are better able to protect your body. 

During testing, two types of phagocytes were activated with the algae used in Mind, and in both cases, there was an increase in the number of cells that engaged in phagocytosis. When monocyte cells were activated with the algae, 10% of those cells engaged in phagocytosis, which is great. But the really impressive revelation was that when PMN cells were stimulated with the algae, more than 90% of them engaged in phagocytosis! This means that by nourishing your immune system with Mind, you can encourage more of your immune cells to increase their capacity for their job, which will ultimately increase your body’s natural ability to protect itself. 

So, if Mind isn’t already a part of your daily routine, what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a bottle today so you can support your mind, your immune system, and the rest of your body with the most nourishing superfood on the planet.
