RENO, Nev., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In launching the Brain Shake™, Peak Health addresses the last frontier of nutrition and health – our brain.
"The world's leading researchers in nutrition have identified specific nutrients that are important for promoting brain health," said Dr. Stacey Bell, the company's team leader in the research area and formerly on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School. "Yet, no one has ever combined these nutrients into a complete meal. This is what the Brain Shake has – everything your brain needs and nothing it does not."
The Brain Shake, which can be purchased at https://peakhealth.shop/, or www.thebrainshake.com, contains 119 nutrients (Chocolate) that have been shown in scientific studies to improve memory, cognition, focus, performance, and sharpness and to protect the brain as we age. Brain health is critical for people of all ages as the brain is one of the few organs that does not regenerate after about age 18.
"This is the first comprehensive food or drink being brought to market that I have seen intended to improve the performance of the brain, as well as protect our brain as we age," said Dr. Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as the leading authority on the role of nutrition and the brain with more than 150 papers published on that topic.
And not a moment too soon.
Brain disease has become an epidemic in the United States. Per the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's is the most expensive disease in America, costing hundreds of billions of dollars annually, and will approach $1 trillion annually by 2050. Today one in three seniors die with Alzheimer's or another dementia disease. Furthermore, 40 percent of people with diabetes type 2 will ultimately suffer from Alzheimer's, which is now known as diabetes type 3.
The Brain Shake™ and all Peak Health's products are based on the scientific foundation that our bodies are designed to stay healthy or heal themselves if we consume nutrient-dense foods, according to Trey Robinson, Peak Health's go to market team leader.
"Peak Health uses the best scientific research to create tasty, nutrient-rich meals, which provide us with everything we need for great health," he said. "These meals replace the poor choices we are making – particularly at breakfast and on-the-go – which dominate our ultra-processed diet as we lead our busy lives."
The Brain Shake™ is a complete meal, containing an excellent source of protein, 25 vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3s. It also contains Peak Health's proprietary BrainCare™ a proprietary blend of nutrients (https://peakhealth.shop/pages/health) that target memory, focus, cognition, performance and long-term brain health. The Brain Shake has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It is also GMO-free, gluten-free, and contains no added sugar.
Peak Health believes in supporting independent nutritional research and is currently funding four major studies with leading research universities concerning the importance of nutrient-rich foods and brain health, satiety, obesity/diet, and children development.
"We built the Brain Shake™ based on the most accepted, peer-reviewed research studies on brain health and nutrition," said Dr. Bell. "To continue to expand our understanding, we are launching a major clinical study with a world-renowned research university to further demonstrate the effect the Brain Shake has on brain health."
