Quincy Bioscience has been conducting brain research by looking at the neuroprotective effects of the calcium-binding protein apoaequorin for more than a decade. The company is dedicated to finding solutions for degenerative brain health conditions and the effects of brain trauma affecting so many Americans.
Apoaequorin is jellyfish-derived protein very similar to the calcium binding proteins found in the human nervous system, which becomes depleted in aging and age-related diseases. The protein has proven neuroprotective and to help with memory.
Quincy Bioscience recently released The Brain Health Guide in order to create awareness of the benefits of apoaequorin and offers practical tips to help preserve healthy brain function in aging.
