Memex 100+TM Provides Multi-Pathway Anti-Aging Support for the Whole Body, Better Memory and Thinking


Memex 100+ Options




Memex 100+TM is our patent-pending nutraceutical supplement that promotes anti-aging pathways for the whole body with additional support for memory, thinking, and coordination.

As people age they typically respond, remember, and move slower than do younger people. Can this normal neural decline with age be slowed or even stopped? We believe that Memex 100+TM offers the potential to slow the decline in youthful levels of neural function, memory, and coordination as you age.

In addition to our highly effective proprietary astragalus which is in Stem Cell 100TM, Stem Cell 100+TM and Memex 100+TM we have added astragaloside IV to Memex 100+TM making it an even more potent anti-aging nutraceutical.

Memex 100+TM, Stem Cell 100TM and Stem Cell 100+TM are all versions of the same nutraceutical. Memex 100+ contains overall anti-aging ingredients plus support for memory and brain health. We recommend you select one of the 3 depending upon which fits your personal needs. All 3 act on many stem cell and anti-aging mechanisms. For even better protection against aging add TeloMaxTM and EpiMaxTM. The Rejuvenation ComboTM gives you Stem Cell 100+TM, TeloMaxTM and EpiMaxTM with a $35 discount over the individual prices.

Developed by experts in the anti-aging field, Memex 100+TM was created using genetic and computer intelligence systems to select natural substances that support longevity and optimal neuronal function with age. The selected substances were then rigorously tested in model animal systems to identify a mix of substances that acts on multiple longevity genes and synergistically improved neural function with age.

The function of the neural system declines with age. Older people typically respond, remember, and move slower than do younger people. The question is: Can this normal neural decline with age be slowed or even stopped? At Life Code, we believe that our new herbal supplement Memex 100+TM offers the potential to slow the decline in youthful levels of neural function, memory, and coordination as you age. This belief is based on the science and research behind Memex 100+TM.

In the Figure below, we compare crawl times for Drosophila groups with a Normal Group (dashed blue line) or with a Weakened Group (solid blue line) neural function. The crawl times were measured in seconds that the Drosophila took to crawl from the bottom of a test tube to the top as a function of age. As expected, all Drosophila groups take longer to crawl up the side of the tube as a function of increasing age. Just like humans, Drosophila move slower with age. One can also see that the Weakened Group has much slower crawl times as a function of age. However, if we treat the Weakened Group with Memex100TM, the Memex-treated Weakened Group (solid red line) had nearly as fast crawl times at each age as did the Normal Control Group. These assays are significant, as the plotted lines are the averages of 200 individuals for each of the 3 groups (100 individuals of each sex).

Drosophila Crawl Test with Memex

The above results are dramatic and show that Memex 100+TM is potent in normalizing neural function in Drosophila. In addition most of the individual components in Memex 100+TM have shown efficacy in improving human neural functions in studies published in peer reviewed journals.

Harness the Power of Your Neural Stem Cells

All the organs and differing tissues of the body appear to have adult stem cells available for regenerating cells in case of injury or disease. It was recently discovered that even brain neurons (previously thought to be non-dividing and irreplaceable in adults) have their own reservoirs of adult stem cells for regeneration. Unfortunately, as we age most adult stem cell populations either decline in number and/or lose the ability to differentiate into functional tissue-specific cells. For example, in many organs old folks have only half the number of stem cells found in young people. Thus, adult stem cells become more and more dysfunction with age, which progressively increases organ and tissue dysfunction with age. Memex 100+TM offers a way to receive some of the benefits of stem cell therapy today by improving the effectiveness of your own adult stem cells.

Active Ingredients: There are 12 natural components that make up the patent-pending combination in Memex 100+TM. The herbal components are highly extracted natural herbs that are standardized for active components that promote neuronal function, adult stem cells, and a healthy level of inflammation:

1) Astragalus membranaceus root is one of the main essential components. In traditional Chinese medicine Astragalus is considered a true tonic that can strengthen debilitated patients and increase resistance in general. Modern herbal treatments with Astragalus membranaceus root (often in concert with other herbs) are used to enhance immunity and to help in wound healing. Astragalus contains several compounds that are active on genes that we and others have identified to promote longevity and neural function. For example, mTOR (mammalian Target of Rapamycin) is inhibited by astragalus extracts. The mTOR protein is involved in cell autophagy (the cellular waste system) and mTOR inhibition is reported to extend lifespan in mice and flies. As long lived non-dividing cells, neurons are dependent on healthy levels of cell autophagy. Astragalus also inhibits Microtubule Star (PP2A), which is a protein phosphatase that alters tau phosphorylation levels and can affect memory and brain function. Microtubule Star is strongly linked to longevity and neuronal function in our genetic and machine learning screens.

2) Gastrodia elata tuber. Extracts of Gastrodia elata are inhibitors of the neurotransmitter acetylcholinesterase, which is an excitatory neural transmitter in the brain that is essential to cognition, hormone secretion, wakefulness, attentiveness, sexuality, and muscle contraction. Gastrodia elata has long been used in Chinese Traditional Medicine in nervous system disorders and is known to increase vascular circulation and GABA levels in the brain. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an inhibitory neuro transmitter that affects many brain functions such as anxiety and stress levels, motor control, and vision. Gastrodia elata also reduces brain inflammation, which genetic data suggest is critical to optimizing brain cell function and regeneration.

3) Schisandra chinensis berry extract has been important in Chinese traditional medicine as an “adaptogen” for stress resistance, longevity, and increasing energy, physical performance, and endurance. Schisandra extracts reduce TNF-alpha, IL-1B, IL-6, Abeta, and cortisol to suppress neural inflammation. Schisandra also induces the protective Nrf2 and HO-1 genes to promote cholinergic signaling. These pathways are all strongly linked to longevity in our genetic and machine-learning screens and to neuronal function though the current literature.

4) Vaccinium uliginosum has positive effects on increasing the insulin sensitivity pathway and reducing the inflammatory factors TNF-alpha and the prostaglandin PGE2. The herb has a history as a medicinal in Chinese traditional medicine to treat diabetes, bladder problems, and swelling of the lining of the stomach and intestines. The extracts of Vaccinium uliginosum berries are highly enriched for their flavonoids (the active ingredients).

5) L-Theanine is a natural amino acid from Camellia sinesis that reduces mental stress and inflammation while improving cognition and protecting brain cells from ischemic or toxic injury. L-theanine alters novel longevity and neuronal genes identified in our genetic and machine-learning screens. Some of the targeted genes are trans-membrane proteins involved in the neuronal uptake of glutamate in the glutamatergic neurotransmitter signaling. Theanine is an analog of glutamine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, so it has direct effects on the brain. Among its psychoactive properties, L-Theanine is reported to reduce metal stress and improved cognition and mood via its expected binding to the GABA brain receptors in the parasympathetic nervous system. Thus L-Theanine appears to increase the overall level of the brain inhibitory transmitter GABA and is reported to promote alpha wave production in the brain. L-Theanine also affects the expression of Excitatory Amino Acid Transporters (EAATs), which are novel longevity and neuronal target genes identified in our genetic and machine-learning screens. L-Theanine also increases brain dopamine concentrations and has significant affinities for the AMPA, Kainate, and NMDA receptors. The AMPA receptor is a non-NMDA trans-membrane receptor for glutamate that mediates fast synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. Kainate receptors are non-NMDA receptors that respond to the neurotransmitter glutamate, which have been implicated in inhibitory neurotransmission via promoting the release of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. The NMDA receptor is a glutamate receptor and helps control memory and synaptic plasticity. L-Theanine may also have positive effects on serotonin levels. In rats, L-Theanine has been neuroprotective.

6) Astrogaloside IV is a high-dose purified major active component of Astragalus and is synergistic with the wide spectrum extract of Astragalus membranaceus as our first ingredient. Astragaloside IV has effects that are virtually identical with the biosimilar TA-65, which is widely marketed as a standalone telomerase activator.

7) Genistein is a phytoestrogen isoflavone that binds the Estrogen Receptor, which ia linked to longevity and neuronal function in our genetic and machine learning screens. Genistein also down regulates beta-amyloid, glut-1 and presenilin, which help promote healthy brain function. Genistein is also reported to increase autophagy (the cellular waste system), PPAR, and the Nrf-2 antioxidant response. All of these additional gene functions promote longevity and neural function.

8) BioPerine is purified piperine isolated from black pepper extract. All of the other components are made more bioavailable by the inclusion of small amounts of BioPerine?. Besides providing greater bioavailability, piperine is also reported to improve memory in a rat animal model.

9) Lithium (as Lithium orotate) is added as an important trace mineral. Lithium promotes several genetic pathways that are important for longevity and neuronal function. For example, lithium promotes NCS-1/Frequenin that codes a calcium-binding protein involved in neurotransmitter release. Other important neural pathways affected by lithium include autophagy, tau phosphorylation, and neural transmitter breakdown by acetylcholinesterase. These are very important pathways for neural function. Lithium has been added at a very low dose, which our testing showed extended longevity while minimizing potential side effects.

10 ) Selenium (as a selenium amino acid complex) promotes major genes involved in longevity and neural function. For example, Selenium promotes the Pre-mRNA-Processing splicing Factor 8 (PRPF8) and Excision Repair Cross-Complementing 1 (ERCC1), which were identified by Genescient as major targets in their genetic pathway studies on longevity and neural function. PRP8 plays an essential role in cellular message processing, while ERCC1 is important for genetic repair. Both these basic processes can decline with age. Selenium is also a cofactor in many selenoproteins, which can help promote aluminum detoxification.

11) and 12) Methyl B-12 and Methyl Folate work together as the active methylated forms of Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid. The active methylated forms of these essential vitamins are typically not present in food and many people are deficient in the methylated form of Folate or B-12 with age, leading to neurological dysfunction. It has been estimated that some 40% of Americans have only one active gene for converting dietary Folate to the active methyl folate form and 10% of Americans lack both active methyl converting genes. Memex 100+TM provides 600 mcg per day Methyl Folate (5-MTHF) and 500 mcg per day Methyl B-12.

Safety: The twelve components in Memex 100+TM are nutraceutical grade and have been individually tested in both animals and humans without significant safety issues. Those with pre-existing conditions of diabetes or hypertension should coordinate this product with your doctor, as lower blood glucose or reduced blood pressure can result from taking the recommended dose of this product.

Warnings: may lower glucose and/or blood pressure in some individuals. The supplement is not recommended for pregnant, lactating, or hypoglycemic individuals.
