For the classroom to the workplace, we all could you use a little boost to help us stay mentally engaged and focused. Here are our go-to’s:
Essential Fatty Acids
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are just that - essential. The body must have these nutrients to function and our body does not produce them on its own. That means we must get them from our diet of oily fish, or supplement with fish oils. A deficiency of essential fatty acids can lead to an impaired ability to learn and recall information. EFAs rebuild old cells and create new ones as well as assist chemical messengers in the body, especially in the brain.
2. Phosphatidyl Serine (FAZ-fah-tid-el SAIR-een)
This phospholipid is also needed by every cell in the body and occurs in the brain more than anywhere else. The supplement is extracted from lecithin and is found in eggs and soy. Phosphatidyl Serine is clinically proven to benefit a wide range of brain functions at any age, especially attention and focus.
3. Redd Remedies™ Brain Awakening
This impressive product combines three key ingredients:
Magtein™ is the only form of magnesium that readily crosses the blood brain barrier. Research has shown it supports healthy cognitive function, memory health and overall brain health.*
Amla protects the brain against free-radical damage.*
Lion’s Mane Fruiting Body supports the healthy synthesis of nerve growth factor and strengthens concentration and memory.*
