Cognitive Health & Brain Supplements
Cognitive Health plays a pivotal role in helping you maintain a fulfilled life. Without cognitive health, you would mentally stumble through life…not able to adequately perform your daily activities. Not able to achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
What is Cognitive Health?
In simple terms, cognitive health — also called “brain health” — is the ability to clearly think, learn, and remember. But there is nothing simple about the cognitive process. You see, cognition also involves attention, reasoning/decision making, creating/storing memories, interpreting sensory input, developing empathy, retaining information, and so much more.
Symptoms of Poor Cognitive Health
The symptoms of poor cognitive health are typically subtle in the beginning, but if not addressed, they can become much more serious over time. Symptoms of poor brain health include:
- Brain fog
- Trouble focusing
- Impaired judgment
Poor brain health can even lead to Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer’s is a disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, eventually leading to inability to perform even the simplest of tasks. And it’s an increasingly common disease. According to the National Institute on Aging, more than 5.5 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s disease.1
The good news is that you don’t have to suffer from brain fog, poor memory, or any of the other symptoms of poor cognitive health. There is an amazingly easy fix that we can’t wait to tell you about. But first…we need to tell you about the main cause of forgetfulness, brain fog, and other distressing cognitive issues — brain inflammation.
Brain Inflammation and Cognitive Function
It may surprise you to learn that one of the biggest risk factors for cognitive decline is neurological inflammation. Doctors are calling brain inflammation a “hidden epidemic” that can lead to so many of the cognitive issues commonly shrugged off as just a symptom of age. Brain inflammation has been linked to a variety of cognitive defects, including memory, focus, and concentration issues. Brain inflammation has even been linked to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.2,3
But what causes neurological inflammation?
Causes of Brain Inflammation
Though we still have a lot to learn about the brain, lifestyle factors play a big role in the development of brain inflammation. Here are the 4 main factors that research indicates may lead to neurological inflammation.
Standard American Diet
The standard American diet rich in starchy carbs, sugar, processed fats — and processed foods filled with preservatives — is the number 1 cause of brain inflammation. This inflammation leads to hypothalamic dysfunction that can negatively affect emotions, behavior, and memory (as well as metabolic function.)4
There is no doubt that we live in a stress-filled world. Work. Family. Finances. All these and more constantly vie for our attention, creating massive amounts of stress.
And though many people take stress for granted, there is evidence that it can trigger brain inflammation that negatively impacts your cognitive health.5 In fact, chronic stress may even promote long-term changes in your brain!
In a series of experiments, University of California, Berkeley researchers showed that stress has a physical effect on the hippocampus in the brain, an area that regulates memory and emotion.
Researchers discovered that chronic stress produces excess myelin (white matter) in various areas of the hippocampus that interferes with “timing and communication” within the brain. 6 This could negatively affect memory, especially the speed at which memories are accessed.
Just like stress, sleep deprivation is a common occurrence for most people. And its effect on your mental state is probably all too familiar — brain fog and mental dullness.
But did you know that sleep deprivation is considered to be a risk factor for neurodegenerative diseases? 7
How is this possible? Well..research indicates that sleep deprivation damages the blood-brain barrier allowing toxins and other dangerous substances to seep into the brain. These substances trigger inflammation in the brain.8
In this industrial age, we are exposed to environmental toxins every day. Air pollution. Carbon monoxide. Household cleaning agents. Lead. Mercury. All of these can inflame your brain and lead to memory loss, confusion, brain fog, and other cognitive impairments.
Preventing All Causes of Brain Inflammation?
You can, of course, fix or prevent brain inflammation by eating a healthier diet, reducing stress, getting more shut-eye, and avoiding environmental toxins.
But that’s easier said than done. In some cases, it’s impossible to avoid all inflammation-causing factors. (Can you really get rid of all environmental toxins?)
Fortunately, you don’t have to drastically change your life to prevent or fix brain inflammation.
All you need is a breakthrough clinically proven brain health supplement. After all, there are many supplements commonly used to reduce stress and improve sleep.
Brain Supplements for Cognitive Health
Certain supplements have long been known to calm the nervous system and help you drift off to sleep. (By reducing stress and improving sleep, these supplements may indirectly reduce or prevent brain inflammation.) Some supplements commonly used to fight stress and/or insomnia include:
- Ashwagandha (Indian Ginseng)
- B-complex vitamins
- Valerian Root
Along with supplements that help reduce stress and promote restful sleep, there are a few supplements that specifically address brain inflammation. Unfortunately, most people are deficient in the exact nutrients needed to support the brain and prevent neurological inflammation.
Did you know there are 4 anti-aging, brain-boosting “fountain of youth” super-nutrients that your brain is MISSING RIGHT NOW which may help to decrease brain inflammation and help your body to reduce the risk of disease and premature death?
