Life Extension Dopa-Mind™ is a standardized wild green oat extract for aging individuals who wish to maintain more youthful cognitive health and performance.
With age, our brain’s levels of dopamine—which regulates mood and cognition—begin to diminish, leading to a corresponding decline in mental performance. This dopamine depletion is largely caused by rising levels of an enzyme called monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B).
Published studies show that by inhibiting MAO-B, this bioactive wild green oat extract promotes healthy dopamine levels. This MAO-B inhibiting mechanism has been shown to support mental acuity and longevity. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in aging volunteers with below-average cognition, researchers demonstrated that 1,600 mg of the same wild green oat extract found in Dopa-Mind™ produced a 74% improvement on a standard test of mental acuity. In soon-to-be published research, 800 mg of the same extract supported mental processing time and speed. In other research, this extract exhibited support for cerebral vasodilator function, as well as endothelial function—both of which play roles in brain health.
The wild green oat extract in Dopa-Mind™ has been shown to promote more youthful cognitive performance in those where it is showing signs of waning, help maintain cognitive function in those whose minds are still healthy, and may support longevity. The suggested dose is one tablet of Dopa-Mind™ daily for the first month. If desired results do not manifest, increase the dose to two tablets daily.
