Vitamin C, fiber, and polyphenol flavonoids protect your brain from stress and the rigors of age.
Royal jelly facilitates the differentiation into neurons, astrocytes or oligodendrocytes from neural stem cells. It's unique fatty acid 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid (HDEA), aids in the generation of both neuronal and glial cells and may stimulate neurogenesis in the mature brain.
Turmeric may help in breaking down destructive plaques and aid in the generation of new brain cells while reducing inflammation in the brain.
Peppercorn has been shown to be able to increase the bioavailability of nutrients, specifically the curcumin compound in turmeric, making turmeric that much more potent.
Sage has been linked to enhanced memory recall, most likely by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase that deplete the cholinergic and noncholinergic neurons.
Celery, and especially their seeds, are extremely rich in luteolin, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound that has been closely linked to enhanced cognition and memory recall.
Cranberries may protect the brain from oxidative stress, preserving and improving memory.
Honey stabilizes blood sugar, provides glucose to the brain, and stimulates the heart. Antioxidants from honey have been shown to fight plaque and provide vital nutrients to the brain such as magnesium, B-vitamins, zinc,potassium, and thiamine.
Besides the ability to provide a jolt to the neurons, coffee may aid short-term memory recall and protect the blood-brain barrier.
Oats may increase blood flow to the brain improving attention and concentration. Oats have also been shown as helping reduce arterial plaque.
Spirulina & Chlorella
Spirulina - Besides being a powerhouse of vitamins, such as B-complex, beta-carotene, E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and essential fatty acids, spirulina may protect the brain from damage and aid in the regeneration of brain cells.
Chlorella - With 5x's the chlorophyll as wheat grass and potent detoxing nutrients, chlorella has been shown to aid memory, concentration, and focus.
A rich source of L-carnitine, an amino acid that has been shown to improve memory. Almonds also provide ample folic acid and phenylalanie, which may boosts dopamine an important neurotransmitter for stabilizing your mood to ensure frustration and depression does not compromise performance. Phenylalanine has also been shown to improve focus and attention by supporting adrenaline production.
A fiber treasure trove, chia seeds may help maintain stable glucose levels, protecting against neuron damaging insulin spikes. They also have been shown to reduce inflammation.
The best natural source of magnesium, Cocoa's flavanols have been shown to stimulate brain blood flow for several hours significantly improving cognition and memory recall.
The gamma linoleum acid (GLA) in flaxseed may reduce inflammation and improve concentration. The most concentrated natural source of lignans, flaxseed may protect the brain from oxidative stress.
A good source of magnesium, a mineral shown to improve memory and focus, Hazelnuts also contain proanthocyanidin, quercetin and kaempferol. These flavonoids are powerful antioxidants and may reduce inflammation and control cortisol, the stress hormone, during extended periods of stress.
High in antioxidants, walnuts may protect the brain from neuronal degeneration and have been shown to improve memory, concentration, and information processing speed.
Known for it's ability to calm the mind and reduce anxiety, chamomile is also high in luteolin, which has been shown to improve hippocampus functions, especially memory recall.
The polyphenols found in green tea have been shown to stimulate dopamine, improving mood and motivation. They have also demonstrated an ability to keep glucose, your brain's main fuel, level and avaibable by regulating insulin sensitivity.
