Emophix™ “Emotional Healing Extract” contains Phytotherapeutic Extracts of Bacopa monniera, Clitoria ternata, Centella asiatica, Withania somnifera, Pannax ginseng and Cinnamomum vera. The principal action of Emophix is to stimulate the growth of new dendrites in the Amygdala. The purpose of dendritic regeneration in the Amygdala is to allow new neural pathways to be developed in the part of the brain known to control emotions, so as to re-wire the emotional content of the brain by over-writing old hard-wired emotional patterns.
The amygdala is associated with a range of cognitive functions, including emotion, learning, memory, attention and perception. Current views of amygdala function emphasize its role in negative emotions, such as fear, and in the linking of negative emotions with other aspects of cognition, such as learning and memory. Bacopa monniera has been demonstrated to have an effect on the dendritic morphology of neurons in the basolateral amygdala, a region that is concerned with learning and memory. Constituents present in Bacopa monniera extract have neuronal dendritic growth stimulating properties.
Bacopa monniera (BM), a traditional ayurvedic medicine, is reported to improve learning and memory behaviors in animals and humans. The plant and plant extracts
have been extensively investigated for their neuropharmacological effects, and studies have confirmed their nootropic action. The active constituents of the plant facilitate learning and memory-enhancing properties. BM has other potential benefits, such as a facilitatory effect on the capacity for mental retention. BM has been used in ayurvedic medicine and in traditional treatments for a number of disorders, particularly disorders that involve anxiety, intellect and poor memory. Significant antidepressant activity has also been observed.
Clitoria ternatea, The effectiveness of extracts were studied in attenuating electroshock-induced amnesia in rats. Extracts produced significant memory retention. In order to delineate the possible mechanism through which Clitoria ternatea elicited the anti-amnesic effects, its influence on central cholinergic activity was studied by estimating the acetylcholine content of the whole brain and acetylcholinesterase activity at different regions of the brain (cerebral cortex, midbrain, medulla oblongata and cerebellum). In vitro and in vivo results suggest the potential of hydroalcoholic extracts of Clitoria ternatea for treatment of cognitive deficit in neurological disorders.
Centella asiatica has been shown to be very useful in improving learning and memory. It is also used as a tonic for promoting brain growth and improving memory. In addition, the plant is used in children with learning difficulties to improve general mental ability and in people suffering from cognitive disorders
Withania somnifera, Also known as Ashwaganda this Ayurvedic herb can boost brain function, lower blood sugar and cortisol levels, and help fight symptoms of anxiety and depression. Several controlled human studies have shown that it can reduce symptoms in people with stress and anxiety disorders
Cinnamomum verum. Contains antioxidants, including polyphenols, phenolic acid and flavonoids
