The best gift for Mother’s Day

Parents’ good health is the children’s best asset. Not sure if you feel the same. My dad left us when I was around 23 and he was 55. When he was around, the only gift I can think of for him was a massage chair. Tens of years have passed, my mom is now 76. Looking back, I know the best thing I have given my mom over the years is E.Excel products. At the current age of 76, she is very mobile, goes anywhere she wants and is independent. Her medical expenses are almost negligible. Ain’t all these the best gifts for us, the children?

The very first product my mom took is <ART>, when she was around 58. Like most elderly in their 50s who begin to experience knee pain. I got her on <ART> and it is currently one product that she believes so strongly about and does not want to stop taking. These days when people begin to walk with a limp at early 50s, she can still run for buses in her 70sπŸ˜….

<Nutrifresh> and <Evernew Orange> have also helped her long-term constipation problem. She is also on <Vision>, <Circle>, <Refresh>, <Encore>, <Millennium> and <Nutriact>. Every time when she has her eyes checked at GP, she passes with flying colors. When most of her peers went through cataract-removal surgery, she does not need to.

With the launch of <toThink> a few years back, immediately I want her to have it after studying the ingredients.

<toThink> contains very high concentration of American Ginseng and Lion Mane Mushroom. I am pretty sure no one can find such high concentration of american ginseng in another product brand, at this pricing.

After reading various literature on American ginseng, I definitely want my mom to have it! Vitality, prevent dementia, improves immunity, reduces flu and cold occurrences, reduces inflammation, and mental alertness. I told myself this is a must-have for her, at her age. And I always emphasised to her to finish one pack in less than three days for best results. I am glad she listens πŸ™‚

I brought her for half yearly regular GP checkup and they will test her memory. And I always tell the doctors her memory is better than mine lol. Recently the doctor said, yes she could tell her memory is good. haha

So you see, ain’t the products investment all well worth it?


E-Memories Testimonial

My friend’s mum lately had trouble remembering things.  It was so bad that when she was on the phone with her mom, her mum will immediately forget what the daughter had told her after they put down the phone.  The mom had to call my friend back to ask again.  Her mum was so frustrated with herself and my friend, on the other hand felt so stressed as her mum had to call her every other minute due to her forgetfulness.  

She decided to let her mum try E-Memories (twice a day) and after taking it for 1 month, her mum is able to remember what was said after putting down the call!  Now her mum is so much happier with herself and my friend no longer feel stressful communicating with her mum.

Our brain and nervous system needs a protein called Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) for normal development.  However, age, illness and environment can affect the level of NGF in our brain and research have shown that Lion’s mane mushroomJi-Lin ginseng and Ashitaba can help to support the NGF level in our brain.  These 3 ingredients are in E-Memories:

Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Researchers discovered that Lion’s Mane Mushroom influences the production of enzymes that signal cells to release NGF, thus supporting the normal function of NGF in maintaining, repairing and improving the infrastructure of memory.

Ji-Lin Ginseng
Ji-Lin ginseng is found to also contain ginseng saponins which are good in supporting healthy NGF levels in the brain.  Ginseng saponins also helped to maintain cell viability in the hippocampus (a memory-making part of the brain) which aid healthy learning and memory.

Ginseng also helps to support brain cells against free radical toxicity.  Free radical-induced toxicity is a contributing factor in degenerative neurons.

Ashitaba supports healthy levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which belongs to the same group of nerve cell proteins as NGF.  BDNF is particularly vital to the hippocampus to create persistent, long-term memories.
Ashitaba also contain a compound called chalcone which supports the production of multiple neurotrophic factors which are proteins that support neurons.

Preventing Dementia

I was watching the television on Talking Point a few days back. The topic caught my attention – ‘Am I at Risk of Dementia‘. It was said in 2015 that 1 in 10 Singaporeans over 60 have dementia.  In 2012, about 28,000 people in Singapore aged 60 and older had dementia.  And this number is expected to soar to 80,000 by 2030.

As defined in ADA (Alzheimer’s Disease Association) website:

Dementia is an illness which affects the brain, causing the brain cells to die at a faster rate than normal. It is not normal ageing. As a result, the mental abilities of the person with dementia declines. This leads to failing memory, deterioration of intellectual function and personality changes.

What further disturbs was the mention that more and more younger people are diagnosed with dementia and, as early as at 40; the prime of their life and careers.

 Prevention seems the only solution. 

The Nerve Growth Factor 

Our brain and nervous system depend on a vital protein called the NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) for normal development.  NGF supports the health of growing and existing neurons.  Our body produces NGF naturally, but age, illness, medications and environment can affect the level of our NGF.

Healthy Brain Foods 

Examples of foods that allow our body to produce more NGF are Lion’s Mane Mushrooms (Hericium erinaceus)Ji-Lin Ginseng (Panax ginseng) and Ashitaba (Angelica keiskei Koidzumi).

Lion’s Mane Mushroom can influence the production of enzymes that signal cells to release more NGF.

Ji-Lin Ginseng contains ginseng saponins that are found to maintain cell viability in the hippocampus, a memory-making part of the brain.  Thus it supports healthy learning and memory.  It also contains ginsenoside Rg1 that supports healthy neurons, cognition, and internal signaling, which supports the creation of proteins vital to the health of the brain.

Ashitaba supports healthy levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which belongs to the same group of nerve cell proteins as NGF.  BDNF is particularly vital to the hippocampus, and its ability to create persistent, long-term memories.  Ashitaba also contains chalcone which supports the production of multiple neurotrophic factors, which are proteins that support neurons.

E-memories actually contains all the mentioned ingredients in concentrated form! That’s so nice! It can also be consumed by the young at school to enhance their learning, for the working adults to be more effective in ‘retrieving their memories’, and last but not least, the elderly to prevent declining of memory.
