Whether you are a student wanting to get better grades, a busy professional needing to stay focused during long days or someone who needs to improve their memory, the best way to reach your goal is to focus on brain health.
One of the easiest ways to give your brain some extra love is to include brain-boosting foods in your diet. Some of our favorites are; walnuts, fish, olives + olive oil, eggs, turmeric, and bitter greens like dandelion greens.
While food is a great place to start, often we need more support to improve our brain function. We have polled our nutritionists and have come up with this Super Brain supplement list:
Natural Factors PQQ-10_This supplement is a combination of 2 of the most powerful nutrients for optimal brain health. PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone), enhances nerve growth, prevents cognitive decline and enhances learning abilities. Co Q-10 provides your brain the energy that it needs to perform its many duties, namely: memory and critical thinking.
Natural Factors Cogni-Hi-Q_Compared to traditional fish oils, Cogni-Hi-Q was created to improve brain health. It is much higher in DHA, the aspect of omega 3 that increases brain power. It was formulated with you in mind as the absorption of this DHA is going to be easier on your body than if it were to try and absorb it from a general fish oil.
New Roots MCT Oil_MCT (medium-chain-triglycerides) is a type of fatty acid that is the best type of fuel for your brain. You can include this oil in your breakfast oatmeal or in your morning coffee for a day of increased energy and focus!
NOW Lavender Oil_Often the reasons we cannot recall a memory or focus on a test is because we are stressed. The natural aroma of lavender helps our body turn off the stress response so we can focus on the task at hand.
GOL Mood+_ This is probably our most popular probiotic, and for good reason! It was formulated to help the body adapt better to stress. As mentioned earlier, stress is a key reason we cannot think clearly. Including this probiotic in your daily routine will not only improve brain function but you will feel better!_
So there you have it. These are our top brain-boosting supplements to help you think clearer and better every day!
