Have You Ever Walked Into a Room and Forgot Why You Went in There In the First Place?

Everyone suffers a gradual decline in memory and thinking speed as they get older. It’s a normal part of aging. But just because it happens to everyone, that doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Think Sharp was designed to provide your brain with the right nutrients to think the best way it can.

Helps maintain memory

Helps maintain memory, cognition and focus in your senior years

Ingredients clinically proven to support the aging brain – promoting clear and sharp thinking, and enhancing long and short-term memory.

Banishes Brain Fog

Banishes brain fog, so you feel more alert and aware

Ingredients clinically proven to boost the production of neurotransmitters – the chemicals that deliver messages to control everything you think, feel and do.

Targeted Nutrition

Targeted nutrition for brain cells

Ingredients clinically proven to cross the blood/brain barrier, including antioxidants to lower the inflammation - that can damage or even destroy brain cells as we age.

Why Did We Develop Think Sharp?

"To make the best of our years we need more than just our physical health, we need our mental health as well and in particular to avoid one of the worst curses of getting old: dementia."

Warren Matthews - Founder of Xtend-Life – shares the personal story of how concerns about dementia within his family led to the development of Think Sharp.

"Researchers now know that the road to dementia starts about 20 years prior to the first clinical symptoms, which provides a big opportunity to protect your brain and reduce your risk of developing dementia in later life."

Dr. Amanda Wiggins – Chief Research Scientist at Xtend-Life - has a PhD in Neuroscience and is ideally placed to describe the science behind how Think Sharp works.

Your Brain Power Falls Earlier Than You Think

New studies show that mental decline can start around age 45 – much earlier than people realise – and by the time you reach 60, this decline starts to speed up. Memory problems fall into three broad categories, with the first two, normal “forgetfulness” and mild cognitive impairment, being risk factors for dementia. 

20-30
Peak Performance

Your brain is at its optimum levels in your 20s to 30s.

How Think Sharp May Help
  • Improve working memory
  • Increase speed of thought
  • Boost concentration
40-60
Normal “Forgetfulness”

The first signs of brain aging are mild and personal, things that only you might notice, like struggling to find the right words or remembering names.

How Think Sharp May Help
  • Provide support against brain cell damage
  • Slow down the brain deterioration associated with aging
  • Improve working memory
  • Increase speed of thought
  • Boost concentration
Any Age?
Dementia

There are lots of different types of dementia, but the most common one is Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is accompanied by all sorts of changes in the brain and at this point, it's not known what causes it.

How Think Sharp May Help
  • Although there is no known cure for dementia, the risks of developing it can, according to many clinical studies, be reduced by supporting the brain with specialised nutrients to maintain the health of the brain cells for as long as possible. The key is to ensure that you provide these essential nutrients to your brain to give it the best chance possible of avoiding this condition.
60-80
Mild Cognitive Impairment

This can develop into something others notice. It’s the difference between forgetting where your car keys are versus forgetting you have a car and is a major risk factor for people to go on to develop dementia.

How Think Sharp May Help
  • Provide support against brain cell damage
  • Slow down the brain deterioration associated with aging
  • Improve working memory by supporting neurotransmitters

How Does Think Sharp Work?

We've come at this from a number of different angles to try to get the most effective product.

Brain Booster

Brain Booster

Sibelius™:Sage, Bacopa, Phosphatidyl L-Serine and Huperzine have been shown to help you think sharper - by boosting accuracy, attention, working memory and recognition.

Brain Protector

Brain Protector

The B vitamins and Folate have been shown to protect against diseases associated with aging, including slowing the rate of brain shrinkage.

Brain Cleaner

Brain Cleaner

A clean brain is a healthy brain. The antioxidants in CyanthOx™ and Oxifend® have been proven to “mop up” free radicals, the molecules that contribute to the problem of an aging brain.

Ingredient Sage

Sibelius™:Sage

Sage has traditionally been used to improve cognitive skills including memory, attention and learning. Sibelius™:Sage is a concentrated, proprietary extract that clinical studies have shown can increase memory performance in older adults by nearly 70% and attention by over 100% within 60 minutes of taking it, with the benefits lasting for hours.

Accuracy Words Item Remembered

An extract of Slavia (sage) with anticholinesterase properties improves memory and attention in healthy older volunteers https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18350281/

Ingredient Bacopa

Bacopa

Bacopa has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and recent studies have shown it supports improved thinking, learning, memory and reaction times in the elderly, including those with dementia. It might also protect brain cells from chemicals involved in Alzheimer's disease.

Ingredient Serine

Phosphatidyl L-Serine

Phosphatidyl L-Serine supports against age-related deterioration in brain cells. Derived from sunflower, it supports cognitive function, including memory, the ability to focus, concentration, reasoning and problem solving, and is a popular choice for those wanting to slow cognitive decline in older age.

Huperzine

Huperzine A

Huperzine A is derived from moss and has been used for centuries to treat a range of ailments. Recent studies have linked it to improved memory and mental function.

CyanthOx™ Organic Sea Buckthorn

CyanthOx™
Organic Sea Buckthorn

Derived from sea buckthorn, an ancient plant grown in the Tibetan Plateau, this clinically proven proanthocyanidin extract can help protect the brain from free radical damage.

Oxifend™ Red Grape Skin Extract

Oxifend®
Red Grape Skin Extract

Made from New Zealand unfermented grapes, Oxifend® Red Grape Skin Extract is a powerful anti-oxidant. It has also been shown to reduce the formation of plaques between neurons, which are hallmarks of Alzheimer’s.

B Vitamins and Folate

Think Sharp includes B6 and B12 vitamins, along with Folate to help slow the rate of brain shrinkage (a precursor to dementia). A two-year VITOCOG study showed the importance of these vitamins for healthy brain aging by reducing the amount of brain shrinkage.

The Risk of Dementia is Rising

It’s ironic that in the modern world, we have ways of managing some of the biggest threats to our physical health, such as cancer and heart disease, but there is no cure for the biggest threat to our mental health, dementia.

Dementia is frightening because it attacks our ability to speak, think, and remember and changes our behaviour towards others.

The chances of getting it increase with age. The good news is there are things we can do to fight against it.

Next Steps…

If you or a loved one has any concerns about cognitive decline, it is well worth trying Think Sharp for a month.  If you don’t feel that it has benefited you in any way, let us know, and we will give you a full refund, less the shipping costs, when you return your empty or unopened bottle.

Why did you Replace Neuro-Natural Recall?

Think Sharp is a solution that is more convenient (fewer capsules) and has a lower price point.

It is a superior product to Neuro-Natural Recall, containing our new clinically proven ingredient, Sibelius™:Sage, to increase memory performance in older adults, Folate to help protect against brain shrinkage and CyanthOx™ to "mop up" free radicals.

How long will it take to work?

We're using an ingredient called Sibelius™:Sage, which starts to work within one hour of taking the supplement, so people should really feel an almost immediate boost to their thinking. The other ingredients are really designed to build up and provide cumulative benefits over a longer time frame so say within one month. Individual results may vary.

When should I take the product?

Take two capsules per day, either with or without food. We strongly recommend taking it during the day rather than just before going to sleep because the Sibelius™:Sage extract does kick in within the first hour. Most people want to be feeling sharp, good and on form during the day and rest their brain at night.

Can I take this product if I am on medication?

There is a very real risk around taking this alongside some other specific medications. People who have Alzheimer's disease are sometimes prescribed a class of drugs called acetylcholinesterase inhibitors which block a particular enzyme, and the result of that is that you have more of that enzyme called acetylcholine in your brain and also in your peripheral nervous system, so in your muscles and mediating signals to your heart your pupils. Do not take it together with any other acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. Always seek medical advice before starting a new supplement.

Can I take a double dose for extra effectiveness?

When additional support is needed, the dose can be increased to 4 capsules per day. Do not exceed 4 capsules per day.

Are there any side effects?

The ingredients have been linked to occasional mild side effects, including gastrointestinal problems and headaches, but all of the ingredients in Think Sharp are both safe and effective. If you experience any mild side effects that you're concerned about, you should seek medical advice or stop taking the supplement.

This product shares some ingredients with Total Balance. Can they be taken together?

Yes, they can certainly be taken together.

This product shares many benefits with Omega 3 fish oil. Which should I be taking?

We suggest you take both because they complement and reinforce each other because they work in slightly different ways.

We highly recommend everyone take DHA and our Xtend-Life fish oil blends have a high content of it. There are some really good long-term studies showing that supplementation with DHA is protective against the development of dementia, but we haven't seen any studies published showing that taking DHA or any fish oil has an immediate and short-term effect on the sharpness of thinking.

Why are the doses of Sage in Think Sharp lower than those in some of the clinical trials?

Levels of Sibelius™:Sage in some trials are 333 mg and Think Sharp has 167mg; there are two reasons for this.

Firstly, Sibelius™:Sage and huperzine work by the same mechanism (they boost the levels of acetylcholine in the brain and body), so if we used both, the higher levels of Sage could end up doubling the impact and have potential side effects.

Secondly, a 167 milligrams daily dose of Sibelius™:Sage has still been clinically proven to improve working memory, speed of processing, memory recall and a number of other memory domains.

Is it safe to take sage long-term?

Yes, the only issue is Thujones which are present in Sibelius Sage. The upper limit for daily consumption of Thujones is 6mg per day. Sibelius™:Sage contains thujones at a very low level (not more than 0.1%). A daily dose of 167mg Sibelius™:Sage that's in Think Sharp would deliver 0.167mg thujones, which is well below the upper daily limit for this substance.

Can I take Think Sharp if I’m pregnant?

If you are pregnant, please consult your healthcare practitioner before starting Think Sharp.

Can I take Think Sharp if I'm breastfeeding?

If you're breastfeeding, please consult your healthcare practitioner before starting Think Sharp.

Can I give Think Sharp to children or pets?

Not suitable for those under 18 years of age. Not suitable for pets.

Does this product contain any allergens?

No, it doesn't contain any allergens.

Is Think Sharp suitable for vegans or vegetarians?

Yes, Think Sharp is suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
