Product Description

What's Nervonic Acid

Acer Truncatum Seed Extract Nervonic Acid (24:1, n-9) is a fatty acid. It is a monounsaturated analog of lignoceric acid (24:0). It is also known as selacholeic acid and cis-15-tetracosenoic acid.

It exists in nature as an elongation product of oleic acid (18:1 Δ9), its immediate precursor being erucic acid. Nervonic acid is particularly abundant in the white matter of animal brains and in peripheral nervous tissue where nervonyl sphingolipids are enriched in the myelin sheath of nerve fibers.

In the same way, recent studies have concluded that nervonic acid is implicated as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of nerve cell myelin.

This acid is an important member of the group of the cerebrosides, which are fatty acids of the glycosphingolipids group, important components of the muscles and the central nervous system and peripheral. Indeed, it is one of the major fatty acids in brain sphingolipids, normally accounting for approximately 40% of the total fatty acids in sphingolipids.

The Source

Initially discovered in mammalian nerve tissue, Nervonic acid now is found in many seed oil of plants such as Acer Truncatum and Malania oleifera.It is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid and an important components of the muscles and the central nervous system and peripheral.Nervonic acid is recognized by various scientific researches the first and only material which can promote the repair and regeneration of the damaged never cells and tissues.Nervonic acid is an important ingredient in nervous cell membranes because it is vital in regulating the ion channels and receptors.

As a very popular new health care products additive Nervous acid is beneficial for treating nerve stroke complications, Alzheimer's, cerebral palsy, cerebral atrophy, memory loss, insomnia, forgetfulness and other brain diseases.


  1. Nervonic Acid can advance the re-growth of neuron. It possesses the following three medical effects:
    Repair and dredge the speedway of transferring nervonic information nerve fiber to dredge the brain route.
    Repair the injured cranial nerve cells.
  2. Advance the re-growth of cranial nerve.
  3. Nervonic acid can increase the energy of brain cells, advance the multiplication and differentiation of cells, prevent the cranial nerve cells from consenescence and injury, recover the clear perceive ability, distinguishing ability, study ability and memory of brain. It is effective to prevent senile dementia.


It is also used as a biomarker to predict who will suffer some psychoses. For instance, there is evidence of abnormal levels of fatty acids in individuals with schizophrenia. In particular, decreased levels of 24:1 are related with prodomal psychosis symptoms so it can be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of this kind of disorders.

Nervonic acid can be an indicator of future neurodevelopmental disorders in male babies whose mother has preeclampsia. Recent studies show that cord nervonic acid levels were lower in women with preeclampsia delivering male babies as compared to normotensive control group. But this does not happen with girl babies. These results suggest that male babies born to mothers with preeclampsia may be at an increased risk of developing neurodevelopmental disorders as compared to female babies.

This acid is present in the composition of aged eye lens, but it does not appear in normal eye lens. This data shows that we can use the presence of nervonic acid (together with heneicosylic acid and docosahexaenoic acid) as biomarkers of aging lens, which is the most vulnerable stage for cataract development.
