What is Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN?
Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN is an ingredient extracted from scallop. This ingredient is supported by clinical trial for its effectiveness in supporting and maintaining healthy cognitive function, emotions and behaviours in patients with brain deterioration. Extensive research have demonstrated that plasmalogens are important for brain health support — protecting brain cells against oxidation, suppressing the formation of amyloid plaques and neuroinflammation (which are responsible for cognitive decline), promoting neurogenesis (birth of nerve cells), inhibiting neuronal cell death and improving learning and memory function.
What is NeuroREGAIN?
NeuroREGAIN is formulated with Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN extracted from scallop using a patented extraction technology developed by Dr Takehiko Fujino and his team. Harnessing the benefits of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN, it is a natural fomula to support brain and memory functions.
What health benefits can I expect from Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN?
Clinical trials of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN have shown its efficacy in supporting cognitive, emotion, behaviour and the quality of life of patients with brain deterioration, the health benefits of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN may vary from person to person. As brain deterioration may due to many possible causes, some people may observe positive changes while other may not.
Why does it take 2 capsules to deliver 1mg of plasmalogen? Is 1mg even a clinically significant dose?
Some plasmalogen supplements appear to contain large amounts of plasmalogen precursor as compared to 1mg of active plasmalogen in NeuroREGAIN. It is worth noting that plasmalogen precursor must be metabolically converted into target plasmalogen molecule, before being utilized by the body to correct plasmalogen deficiency. Hence, it is unsurprising that plasmalogen precursor has to be consumed at a much higher dosage, compared to active plasmalogen (NeuroREGAIN) which can be utilized by the body directly. However, it is uncertain how much plasmalogen precursor can eventually be converted into the target plasmalogen molecule and it could be varied between individuals. Hence, plasmalogen precursor and active plasmalogen are completely different and incomparable.
Does oral intake of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN have any effect on plasmalogen levels in the human body?
Yes, plasmalogen levels in blood do increase after consumption of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN. In general, the level of plasmalogens in the blood is correlated to the cognitive function of the brain.
How long does it take to see the benefits of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN on my health?
The ideal duration for optimum effect of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN on patient with brain deterioration has not yet been studied in any clinical trial. However, positive changes have been observed in certain patients within a short period of one month after administration. Continuous supplementation of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN is strongly recommended to maintain signicantly high plasmalogen levels in the body. It is important to note that the intake duration by any person should be determined by their physician, with consideration of the effects and changes in that person.
Can I consume plenty of scallops in place of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN to achieve the same level of effect on cognitive function?
Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN extracted with special technique can be absorbed efficiently into our body. It is not possible to achieve the same absorption efficiency with consumption of plenty of scallops.
Are there any known side effects of consuming NeuroREGAIN Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN?
There are no known side effects associated with daily consumption of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN in NeuroREGAIN if taken as recommended, except if one is allergic to scallop or soybean. You are advised to consult your physician before taking any dietary supplement if you have, or have had any health condition. Discontinue use and seek advice from your physician of any adverse reactions such as allergic reaction. Please note that dietary supplement is not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle.
I am concerned about my poor memory. Can Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN help?
Yes, Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN can help in supporting memory function. Based on the clinical trials conducted, Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN increased MMSE scores within as short as three months of oral intake. MMSE is a test for a number of different mental abilities, including memory, concentration and language. In addition, feedback given by caregivers also revealed an improvement of memory in the subjects.
When should I start to take Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN for protection against brain deterioration?
It’s never too early to start your supplementation of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN as accumulation of amyloid β proteins occurs 20 years before the onset of poor cognitive symptoms. Since brain deterioration typically develops in people aged 65 or older, it is highly advisable to take Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN from the age of 45 to replenish the reduced plasmalogens in the brain as an protection against deterioration of cognitive functions.
Who is suitable to consume Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN?
Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN is suitable for people who have poor cognitive function. It is advisable to take Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN as early as possible. In addition, those who have concerns of brain deterioration can also take Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN as an early protection to reduce the risk. Please consult your physician before taking NeuroREGAIN Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN if you are pregnant or lactating.
Is it safe to take more NeuroREGAIN more than the recommended daily dosage to expedite cognitive improvement?
Dosage is optimised at 0.5mg twice a day. Do not exceed the recommended dose as excessive intake of any dietary supplements may not deliver the intended effects. Please discontinue use and consult your physician if any adverse effects such as allergic reaction occurs.
How should I take NeuroREGAIN?
NeuroREGAIN comes in a capsule form. Take one capsule (containing 500µg plasmalogen) twice a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon or night. Swallow the whole capsule with water. If necessary, capsule may be opened and mixed with water (avoid hot water) for ease of consumption. For maximum absorption, it is highly recommended to consume NeuroREGAIN on an empty stomach or 2 hours after meal. Try to establish a routine by taking the capsule at the same time daily. If you missed the first dose, take it as soon as you remember, or together with the second dose within the day. As dosage is optimised at 2 capsules a day and taking more is not recommended, it is NOT advisable to make up for the missed dose by taking 3 capsules the following day.
Can I take NeuroREGAIN while I am on medication?
Yes, you can. However, please take NeuroREGAIN and medications at least 2 hours apart.
How should I store NeuroREGAIN?
NeuroREGAIN should always be stored in a cool, dry place at room temperature. Protect from direct sunlight, keep out of reach of children and please do not refrigerate.
Brain Deterioration Began 20 Years
Before Symptoms Appear!
A study shows that the accumulation of Aβ protein (amyloid plaque) in brain, started as early as 20 years before the appearance of symptoms of brain deterioration.
Causes of brain deterioration
The causes of brain deterioration are still unidentified but research suggests they probably include a combination of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors (e.g. brain fatigue). In fact, two abnormal structures, namely amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles (deposits of tau proteins) in the brain are prime suspects of nerve cells damage that could possibly lead to brain deterioration.
What are amyloid plaques?
Like dental plaques that form on teeth, amyloid plaques are clusters of Aβ protein deposits in the brain. In a healthy brain, the proteins would be broken down and removed from the brain naturally. However, in a deteriorating brain, the body is unable to remove these protein fragments and they accumulate to form hard and insoluble plaques between the neurons in the brain. This causes disruption to neurons communication and induces oxidative stress that affects the proper functioning of the brain.
What are neurofibrillary tangles?
Brain cells depend on an internal transport system to carry nutrients and other essential compunds throughout the extensive neural network. This system requires the normal structure protein called tau. In brain deterioration, threads of tau protein twist into abnormal tangles inside brain cells, leading to failure of the transport system and causing death of brain cells.
Brain deterioration may also be attributed to brain fatigue. Recent studies in Japan found that one of the possible root causes of brain deterioration is “Stress-induced Brain Fatigue”. Excessive stress coupled with unhealthy lifestyle and diets, environment contaminants and lack of sleep, produce free radicals, thereby causing the nerve cells to oxidise and the brain to fall into a state of fatigue. This may lead to symptoms of brain deterioration over a prolonged period.
What are Plasmalogens?
Plasmalogens are a type of phospholipid present in almost all tissues of human, and are most abundant in the brain. They are essential for their critical role in memory, focus and other cognitive functions. Plasmalogen levels in the body begin to increase from foetal stage, peak by the 30s and start to decline thereafter. Research indicated that this decline affects brain performance, especially in plasmalogen-deficient seniors.
Breakthrough in Plasmalogen Research
The strong correlation between plasmalogens and brain deterioration had already been confirmed decades ago. However, these studies had made very little progress. The main reason for the slow progression was due to extraordinary amount of time and money required for plasmalogen extraction and detection. In addition, there was no high-volume extraction technology available to extract large amount of plasmalogen for animal testing and clinical trial. However, a research team led by Emeritus Professor, Takehiko Fujino of Kyushu University in Japan has successfully established a simple plasmalogen detection method and developed a patented plasmalogen extraction method to extract large volumes of high purity (92%) plasmalogens. These discoveries have led to a major breakthrough in plasmalogen research.
Plasmalogen and Brain Functions
Studies have also shown that plasmalogen levels are significantly reduced in the brain tissue and serum of patients with brain deterioration. The decline of plasmalogen is associated with the severity of cognitive impairment.
Clinical effectiveness of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN on patients with mild brain deterioration
In a clinical trial, patients (aged 60 – 85 years) with mild brain deterioration were orally administered 1,000 μg (500 μg twice a day) Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN or placebo daily for 24 weeks and their cognitive function was assessed.
Oral administration of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN significantly improved memory function of the patients with mild brain deterioration in which significant memory improvement was also seen in a subgroup of female subjects and those who were younger than 77 years old. No clinically relevant adverse events were observed and thus, it is safe for consumption.

Subject C: 80-year-old male, brain deterioration for 3 years
Although the symptom of repeating activities continues, he began to actively enjoy life after consuming Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN for 3 months. He took part in ball games at the elderly club, invited friends for a meal and grew vegetables in the garden. His MMSE score also improved by 5 points in 3 months.
Subject D: 70-year-old female, brain deterioration for 11 years
She suffered from severe delusion and could not take care of herself. Changes were seen two months after she consumed scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN. She was able to apply lipstick and put on accessories without any help. This reduced the burden on her husband as her caregiver.
Subject E: 70-year-old male, brain deterioration for 1 year
He became irritable due to his inability to carry out his daily tasks. His skill in “Go” (Chinese board game) slackened from level 6 to the beginner’s level. Changes were observed after he consumed Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN. He became more cheerful and empathetic. He recovered and his skill in “Go” was reinstated to level 6. Now he volunteers and teaches “Go” at a day service facility.

Endorsement and feedback
1. Scientific studies have shown that scallop is a better source of plasmalogen than chicken for the following reasons:
- The structure of plasmalogen extracted from scallop is closer to those found in the human body.
- Plasmalogen from scallop is enriched with higher amount of omega-3s (DHA and EPA), thereby giving it the added efficacy of serving the functions of both plasmalogen and the two essential omega-3s.
- Clinical trials have shown that plasmalogen extracted from scallop has quicker effect on the improvement of cognitive function than plasmalogen extracted from chicken.
Unity Popular Choice and Award Winner
Plasmalogens are a type of phospholipid present in almost all human tissues, most abundantly in the brain. It declines after age 30 and research indicated that this decline affects memory, focus & brain performance. Scallop is a better source of plasmalogen for use by humans as its structure is closest to plasmalogens found in the human body thus far. Other plasmalogen sources include krill oil, cow & chicken breast and shark liver oil.

Progress of cognitive functioning shown in the Clock Drawing test done by Tom Yip, a cancer survivor with dementia after taking scallop-derived plasmalogens (NeuroREGAIN).
Subject became more expressive and responsive after taking scallop-derived plasmalogens (NeuroREGAIN) for 2 weeks.
Subject’s MMSE score improved from 18 (moderate dementia) to 23 (mild dementia).
Mr Tom Yip (75 years old) is a cancer survivor with brain deterioration whilst also suffering from hallucinations. His condition showed no progress after taking prescribed drugs. He also tried taking coconut oil in which he observed improvement initially, but the condition later worsened.
He tried scallop-derived plasmalogens while continuing his medication and coconut oil. After just 1 month, we see great improvement in his cognitive function through the Clock Drawing Test (CDT). CDT is widely used as a clinical screeining tool for cognitive impairment. Tom’s wife also noticed that he does not wake up during the wee hours of the morning as frequently as before.
From this, we can conclude that scallop-derived plasmalogen dietary supplementation will not interfere with existing medications and other supplements.
Madam Seki (83 years old) has poor memory and degenerating brain function. Initially, she has little facial expression and could not hold a conversation. However, after taking scallop-derived plasmalogens for just 1 week, her family members are amazed to see that she looked more expressive, just like how she was before her diagnosis. Neighbors also observed that she looked more cheerful
Mr Lai (86 years old) needed a caregiver because he has difficulty controlling his shaky hands and cannot feed himself. He also experienced hallucinations and often “sees” people entering and leaving his high-rise apartment through the window. He started taking scallop-derived plasmalogens in September 2016, 1 veggie cap in the morning and 1 in the evening. By December 2016, the hallucinations have disappeared and he is able to feed himself. He is delighted to resume some of his favorite past times activities like playing mahjong and occasional horse-betting. Mr Lai’s improvement was so great that even his doctor was amazed.
My 46 year old husband has had memory problems since his early 40s. He was always unfocused in his daily activity and cannot remember if he has even eaten. It was not like this in his younger days. As he struggled with memory loss, he became very frustrated and depressed; it also affected his work performance. Besides having to deal with forgetfulness, Jack also suffered from severe insomnia as he could not calm his mind in the nights.
I was very worried that his condition was deteriorating and felt helpless. A friend introduced us to NeuroREGAIN, hoping it would help Jack. After taking 1 capsule daily for 1 month, Jack’s memory has improved. He is more aware of his surroundings and his mind is clearer too. Jack’s memory, temperament and sleep quality has gotten better with NeuroREGAIN.
When I first purchased NeuroREGAIN 6 months ago, my 90 year old father was in the severe stage of brain deterioration. In the time after, his condition did not change and even seemed to worsen.
But only 2 weeks ago, I started noticing an improvement. My father used to stay silent the whole day, but he is now talking more, even though not every word is clearly articulated. He also looks for the bathroom and refuses to pee into the portable urinal he used to use. My father also asks to take a walk instead of using the wheelchair like before.
It is very hard to explain, but we see him “re-learning” his life and also “reconnect” to his old memories. We don’t know if there will be further improvement, but we only wish for him to have a good and peaceful life. We are very happy with his progress and hope that our father’s story can help and encourage those suffering from brain deterioration and their family members.
