Gotta Feed The Brain!

Cognitive brain function

Exercise It Too.

NOT MUCH is going on (literally) without a healthy, working noggin.

Whether or not we exercise our bodies, most of us recognize that for it to be strong, it needs to be properly fed, exercised and rested.  No such consideration is accorded the brain.

We tend to take the brain for granted.

It”s a good idea, say the brains that study such things, to not be so caviler about that gooey mass residing between our ears.  There are brain exercises noted to improve memory and cognition, and just as with the body, certain foods and nutrients that nourish it.

In particular, there are potent formulas that enhance circulation in the brain, provide antioxidant help and boost production of an important brain nutrient, acetylcholine.

Such supplements can be particularly benefical as we get older.

Other than the Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid combination mentioned here, I don’t regularly take any supplements primarily directed at improving brain function per se, although a few of my friend’s wish I would.  However,  I do cycle in and out of the following supplements that are helpful to brain health and cognition:

Ginkgo Biloba 120mg  (120mg, 60 small capsules)

From time to time I take Ginkgo Biloba, widely touted as improving blood circulation to the brain. Like a lot of the supplements I use, I consider it, and the others listed here, as insurance.


Hydroxocobalamin Extreme™ (5000mcg, 30 tablets)

Hydroxocobalamin Extreme is a powerful scavenger of nitric oxide, which with its oxidant product peroxynitrite, affects brain function and pain sensitivity. Hydroxocobalamin also helps manufacture the myelin sheath that acts as a protective layer around the brain and helps produce neurotransmitters, which are vital for brain communications. In some cases, hydroxocobalamin is being used in treatments for autism.

Think Clear (60 medium veggie capsules)

Think Clear is comprised of four top-rated nutrients for brain and memory health that effectively supports cognitive function. This formula enhances circulation and oxygen flow to the brain to promote optimal cell health, as well as supporting information transmission from cell to cell.
