Your brain is amazing.

But modern living environments exacerbate the destruction of cells and reduce cell function including those higher functions in your brain.

There are three factors that are constantly working against you in your body: Oxidation, Inflamation and Toxicity.

You can help yourself out by causing your brain to create a protein called Brain Derived Neuropathic Factor (BDNF) – this involves enhancing the performance of the mitochondria and there are a number of ways to do it. First up – surprise surprise – voluntary exercise. Another is simple calorie reduction. Intellectual stimulation (new things and meditation) is vital. Finally there are the supplements listed below, most importantly being Curacumin and DHA.

The aim of brain health is to keep the Mitochondria healthy. Ironically mitochondria are huge producers of the very same free radicals that lead to their own destruction – so they need special help to keep them in peak condition.

Some of the best known naturally occurring brain function enhancers are as follows:

Tumeric – massive amounts of Curacumin (powerful Ayurvedic herb with powerful anti-oxidant and anti-imflammatory properties)
Glutathione – counterbalances the inflammatory effects of toxins in the brain
Omega 3 fatty eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) – proteins and complex molecules required for electrochemical transmission and signal reception
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) – an important natural regulator of infamation (inflamation is the major cause of ADHA, MS, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease)
