USANA CopaPrime+™: Two Doctors Are Better than One
There’s a science to writing quiz show questions.
A good question should bring one of three reactions: “I knew that,” “darn it—I should have known that,” or “I didn’t know that, but I’m glad I do now.” From Trivial Pursuit to watching Jeopardy, I can’t count the times I’ve blurted out the wrong answer only to mutter, “Jeez, I knew that.”
It’s incredible what I’ve learned (and forgotten) through the years. From state capitals to Shakespeare sonnets to how cellular osmosis works, I’ve collected a lifetime of education from countless sources. Mr. Vordahl taught math, Mrs. Quinn showcased world history, and Mrs. Anderson unlocked chemistry. These three teachers and hundreds of others built my educational foundation.
All of learning is experienced based. It starts from mimicking your parents as an infant. As you get older, you go to school and learn from teachers and classmates. You absorb everything you read, watch on TV, and experience in the world. Your five senses record your environment, helping you think, reason, remember, and learn new things.
It’s important to keep your brain healthy. Without it, you’d be in trouble. And that’s where USANA CopaPrime+™ comes in. Your brain controls your thoughts, memory, and speech. It’s in charge of the movement of our arms and legs and the function of the organs within our body. Weighing around three pounds, the brain is an apex consumer of your body’s blood and oxygen, taking in 20 percent. There’s almost 100,000 miles of blood vessels in your brain with over 100 billion neurons.
Your brain needs glucose, vitamins, and minerals to function at its highest level. Brain cells can’t store energy; therefore, they need a constant stream of complex carbohydrates. And your brain needs water. Even with a two percent decline in water (dehydration), you can experience pain, memory loss, and cellular damage. Eating a diet rich in oily fish containing omega-3, berries, nuts, avocados, and beans provide the macronutrition your brain needs.
It’s a smart idea to support your brain with a steady source of antioxidants. Free radicals—unattached oxygen molecules—can damage cells. Every cell in your body is affected by free radicals or oxidative damage, but your brain cells are particularly vulnerable.*
See oxidative damage in action by simply slicing an apple. Over time, the apple will turn brown from the oxygen in the air. Rub a little lemon juice on each slice, and you slow down the spoiling. Similarly, taking antioxidants helps promote the healthy cellular aging process.
Taking antioxidants helps promote the healthy cellular aging process.
USANA® CopaPrime+™ helps your mind focus, learn, and recall memories with a boost of nutrition for your brain. How do I know this? Because USANA’s Chief Science Officer Dr. Rob Sinnott told me. He’ll also talk about this revolutionary brain support supplement on The Dr. Oz Show on Friday, February 28, 2020.*
Use this Jeopardy-style crash course on USANA® CopaPrime+™ to prep you for Dr. Sinnott’s discussion with Dr. Oz.
Q. A supplement used to optimize cognitive function.
- What is a nootropic?
CopaPrime+ is comprised of three naturally derived nootropics: American ginseng, Bacopa, and coffee fruit extract. Nootropics can help maintain cognitive function, including executive functions like memory development, creativity, and motivation in healthy individuals.*
Q. This ancient root assists with mood-support.
- What is American ginseng?
American ginseng is an incredible plant. Found throughout the northeastern United States, this strain of ginseng is prized for its intense, sweet flavor and herbal benefits. It’s packed with antioxidant properties to help the healthy function of brain cells, neurons, and nerve cells. A key ingredient in CopaPrime+, American ginseng supports cognitive tasks related to the speed and accuracy of processing information.*
Q. A perennial, creeping herb native to the wetlands of southern India, often called hyssop, herb of grace, and Indian pennywort.
- What is Bacopa monnieri?
The “copa” in CopaPrime+ comes from this non-aromatic herb. Bacopa is shown to support normal cell signaling, vital to learning and memory.*
Q. The fleshy fruit surrounding this seed is packed with antioxidants.
- What is coffee fruit extract?
More than the source of your morning cup of joe, coffee fruit extract supports BDNF (brain-derived neurotropic factor) levels. BDNF is a protein that helps with nerve growth and neuroplasticity, the muscle-building part of the brain. Just like lifting weights builds muscles, increasing neuroplasticity helps to strengthen the pathway linked to memory. The coffee fruit extract in CopaPrime+ supports alertness, mental clarity, and focus while supplying antioxidants and neuroprotective properties.*
Q. Optimal brain health.
- What is taking CopaPrime+?
Adding CopaPrime+ to your daily routine helps support your cognitive function to focus on the task at hand. It’s not a miracle drug, but rather a supplement that optimizes your mental strength. Your brain powers everything in your life, and CopaPrime+ supports healthy short-term and long-term cognitive functions.*
- Supports performance-driven activities like focus, short-term memory, and resilience to stressors.*
