It is also advertised as a support for healthy heart, eyes and skin. The formula is created by Green Medica, a new company manufacturing and selling all-natural nutraceuticals designed for the wellness and health industry.

Brain Rescue is advertised as one of a kind orthomolecular PC DHA nutritional supplement which is created for the support of optimal brain function. The main active nutrients are Glycerophosphocholine (GPC) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) combined to offer the brain the energy it needs to work at full power.

Brain Rescue is claimed to be beneficial for everyone concerned to keep their mental alertness and optimal brain functioning, be they students or elderly people.


1) What is Brain Rescue?

Brain Rescue consists of a blend of two active ingredients mixed in a unique formula.Glycerylphosphorylcholine (GPC) is a nutrient considered essential for helping with a variety of disorders and safer than substances with similar effects. GPC has been clinically researched and proven to possess beneficial effects for the brain in case of patients aged between 19 to as old as 90 years. It has been shown to increase mental focus, attention, recall and cognition in young subjects and help patients suffering from mental decline caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Taken orally, GPC rapidly elevates the level of choline in the brain. Choline is a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which plays a key role in the Peripheral Nervous System and the Central Nervous System processes.

Docosahexaenoic Acid, or DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid found in all human cells, has been extensively researched and demonstrated to play a crucial role in brain cells to generation, transmission and response to electrical and chemical messages. Particularly, for Brain Rescue, the DHA is extracted from algae and not fish as is usually the case.

It is also marketed as America’s #1 brain nutrient, with no empirical evidence provided to support that claim. However, there is only evidence of clinical testing on the ingredients of Brain Rescue and not on the whole formula.

The DHA from the Brain Rescue comes from controlled growth microalgae, not from potentially contaminated sources such as fish.However, to avoid undesired side effects, it is advised to consult an informed physician before taking this supplement.
