What Is a Head Injury?
A head injury is any sort of injury to your brain, skull, or scalp. This can range from a mild bump or bruise to a traumatic brain injury. Common head injuries include concussions, skull fractures, and scalp wounds. The consequences and treatments vary greatly, depending on what caused your head injury and how severe it is.
Head injuries may be either closed or open. A closed head injury is any injury that doesn’t break your skull. An open, or penetrating, head injury is one in which something breaks your skull and enters your brain.
It can be hard to assess how serious a head injury is just by looking. Some minor head injuries bleed a lot, while some major injuries don’t bleed at all. It’s important to treat all head injuries seriously and get them assessed by a doctor.
What is a concussion?
Some experts define concussion as a head injury with temporary loss of brain function, which can cause cognitive, physical, and emotional symptoms.
Concussion may also be defined as an injury to the brain, often caused by a jolt or blow to the head - in the majority of cases, the individual does not lose consciousness.
Causes of concussion
Concussion can cause cognitive, physical and emotional changes.
The brain floats in cerebral fluid which protects it from jolts and bumps. A violent jolt or a severe blow to the head can cause the brain to bump hard against the skull.
This can result in the tearing of nerve fibers and the rupturing of blood vessels under the skull, leading to a build-up of blood.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease found in people who have had a severe blow or repeated blows to the head. The disease was previously called dementia pugilistica (DP), i.e. "punch-drunk", as it was initially found in those with a history of boxing. CTE has been most commonly found in professional athletes participating in American football, rugby, ice hockey, boxing, professional wrestling, stunt performing, rodeo, and other contact sports who have experienced repeated concussions or other brain trauma. Its presence in domestic violence is also being investigated. It can affect high school athletes, especially American football players, following few years of activity. It is a form of tauopathy.

there is no reason why you shouldn't be taking EHT to help defend your brain!" - Max Stock - Signum Labs at Princeton University

What is Nerium EHT®?
Nerium EHT© is a proprietary mix of bioactive molecules isolated from coffee.
EHT® was developed in part through funding received by the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation, The Michael J. Fox Foundation, and the National Institute of Health.
EHT® is the result of 20 years of research performed by Dr. Jeffry Stock at Princeton University, where it was discovered using a proprietary phosphatase screening platform.
EHT® is an active component in coffee and ensures TAU activity is optimized, resulting in healthy communication between neurons and better brain health.
Nerium International is the sole distributor of EHT®

OPINION / TESTIMONIALS
The Top 5 reasons everyone should take EHT!
by Dr. Traci Barthel
Nerium International partnered with Signum Biosciences in May 2015 and now has exclusive rights to EHT. EHT is a patented bioactive molecule discovered from a green coffee bean. This is the most incredible supplement, I believe anyone that can swallow a pill should be taking EHT. Signum was evaluating different foods over the last 20 years for bioactivity and focused on the green coffee bean for a number of reasons. They discovered EHT which stimulates PP2A in turn protecting and stabilizing tau protein. The important thing to know is that tau protein is an integral component of a neuron. It helps to transport nutrients and strengthen neural connections. The more stable tau protein, the faster and better the connections. Aging, stress or injury to the brain causes dysfunctional tau protein resulting in weakened neuronal connections that can affect memory, performance and focus.
1-EHT promotes better cognitive function and brain health. We can follow our health by seeing how our bodies look or watching the scale, we cannot watch what is happening in our brain. I think it is important to do whatever we can to maintain and improve our brain health. Signum has created the ideal brain health supplement with EHT and other vitamins and supplements well know to improve brain health.
2-EHT increases focus, mental alertness, memory and recall. If we all had just a bit more focus, motivation, drive, whatever you want to call it, imagine what you can accomplish in a day. I call it a calm energy. I am not jittery from too much caffeine, rather very focused and ready to take on anything.
3-EHT is BSCG certified drug free supplement. This is awarded to companies that produce their supplements under the highest quality standards and protect against contamination. This means every pill you take will contain exactly what you expect, pure EHT and some vitamins and supplements, no contaminants!
4-EHT contains methylated B12, methylcobalamin. Most manufactures use a synthetic non naturally occurring form of B12 called cyanocobalamin. This is a much less expensive version of B12, and is not well absorbed and actually contains a cyanide molecule. Methylcobalamin exists in nature, is better absorbed, and is not toxic!
5-EHT may improve performance. Strong microtubules and better neuronal connections may result in better performance. We have neurons in our brain and peripheral muscles, better connections in the muscles can result in improved performance. Muscle memory occurs when you do the same thing over and over again. If you are taking EHT and in a performance sport you may see a benefit. Who doesn’t want a slight improvement in performance? In some sports 1/100th of a second can be the difference of qualifying for the next level of competition.
I have personally noticed several positive changes while taking EHT. I have more energy throughout the day. I have better focus and accomplish more things daily on my to do list. I believe I sleep better and actually am sleeping less hours per night and feeling more rested. I suspect it is because I am so productive during the day my brain can turn off and sleep! So again, I believe that everyone that can swallow a pill should be taking EHT!
