Nerve acid, also known as Salacholaic Acid, is a monounsaturated fatty acid. Because it was found in mammalian nerve tissue early, it was named nervonic acid. Nervous acid is high in the brain and nerve tissue, is an important constituent of biofilms, and is usually used as a marker of medulla (white matter) in brain glycosides. A special nutrient that the brain needs for life. Nervous acid is a “high-level nutrient” necessary for the growth and redevelopment of nerve cells, especially brain cells, optic nerve cells, and peripheral nerves, and maintenance of physiological functions. It is a treasure for nourishing the brain; it is difficult for the human body to generate , in vitro uptake is very important.


Acer truncatum is a unique seed of a woody plant containing nervonic acid in China. Its seeds contain high oil content and are rich in resources. It is currently the main resource for extracting nervonic acid. Acer truncatum seed contains a variety of active ingredients, rich in nervonic acid, vitamin E, etc., which can protect cells against oxidative stress caused by free radicals and improve cognitive function.


Nervonic Acid can completely penetrate the blood-brain barrier to repair damaged nerve fibers, unblock the brain circuit, repair aging damaged and hardened heart and brain walls, restore blood vessel elasticity and regulate blood lipids.


Nervonic Acid has the advantages of combination drugs, especially for the prevention and treatment of major diseases of the nervous system, which has important in-depth development value.

Clinical features of nervonic acid:

  • Repair and dredge nerve fibers, improve the activity of cranial nerves, restore the activity of nerve endings, promote the growth and development of nerve cells, and prevent nerve fiber atrophy;
  • Inhibit the divergence and decline of cerebral nerve fibers and nerve cells, promote the recovery of brain damage, and prevent the collapse, atrophy and hardening of brain tissue;
  • While promoting the development of brain tissue, it also reduces the accumulation of lipofuscin in brain cells, thereby preventing the aging of brain cells and achieving the purpose of longevity; improving blood circulation in the brain, ensuring adequate supply of blood oxygen to brain cells, and promoting metabolism ;
  • Refreshing the mind and strengthening the brain, nourishing the brain nerves, regulating the function of brain cells, enhancing the connection of information between brain cells, enhancing the energy of brain cells, promoting cell proliferation and differentiation, and restoring the brain’s clear cognition, discrimination, learning, thinking and memory Features;
  • Promote the growth, development and functional improvement of brain tissue, improve the brain’s intelligent response speed, enhance self-motor and sensory functions, and realize the self-reliance and learning ability of children with cerebral palsy.

Effects of Nervous Acid

  • Promote brain development and improve memory

Nervous acid is an essential nutrient for brain development and maintenance of function. It has a great effect on improving the activity of cranial nerves and preventing the aging of cranial nerves. Brain nerve cells play a very important role in information transmission and information processing. Nervous acid is one of the important components of the brain nerve cell membrane. By ingesting a small amount of neural acid every day, the function of the brain cell membrane can be enhanced, and the information in the brain can be enhanced. Connect, transmit and process, enhance the memory function of the human body and promote the recovery of brain fatigue.

  • Slow down aging

Human aging often starts from the aging of the brain, and the aging of the brain will cause the decline of other functions. After the elderly consume nervonic acid, the white matter of the brain is replenished in time, which improves the vitality of brain cells and helps to enhance the vitality of human life. So as to achieve the purpose of delaying the aging of the human body.

  • Hypoglycemic and lipid-lowering

Nervous acid, as a long-chain fatty acid, acts synergistically by promoting the normal metabolism of essential fatty acids ∞-3 series and ∞-6 series. It can quickly reduce low-density lipoprotein in blood, increase high-density lipoprotein, reduce total cholesterol content in serum, reduce blood viscosity, and inhibit platelet aggregation; it can promote the secretion of insulin in the middle mouth of pancreatic islets and prevent diabetes; studies have shown that nervonic acid It can improve blood microcirculation, has obvious effects on hyperlipidemia, hypertension, hyperglycemia, atherosclerosis and other diseases, and can effectively prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, senile dementia and other diseases.

In addition, according to the latest research, since nervonic acid is the only substance that can repair nerve myelin sheaths, many of the effects that drugs cannot achieve can be compensated and repaired by nervonic acid, such as insomnia, forgetfulness, etc. , problems such as inattention are often related to the shedding of nerve myelin sheaths, which can be repaired by nervonic acid.

Nervonic Acid Application:

  • Health supplements
