In this week’s blog, featuring Brain Function, we cross the halfway mark of our course detailing the “11 essentials” to a healthy supplemental regimen. We’ll continue to discard most of the medical jargon and be sure to lay out what an optimal supplement routine looks like. Our curriculum will cover the 11 areas that are most critical for treatment on a bi-weekly, session by session basis. Our focus areas are as follows:
- Omega – 3 Fatty Acids
- Coenzyme Q10
- Mitochondrial Function
- Hormone Balance (DHEA)
- Brain Function
- Bone Health
- Neural and Hepatic Health
- Vitamin D Levels
- Vitamin K
- Men’s & Women’s Health
Session 6: Brain Function:
It goes without saying that keeping your mind as healthy as your body is important, especially as you reach the twilight years of your life. People often recognize that as they age their minds are not as sharp as they used to be, but it doesn’t have to be this way! This is a result of a number of things, such as your phosphatidylserine (PS) levels declining as you age. PS helps the brain use its fuel efficiently, so as it begins to run at a lower level, you can see a cognitive decline as a result.
As with the body, if you maintain good nutrition that includes dietary supplements, and you keep your blood pressure and weight in check, you have a great foundation to build on. Providing the brain with the supplementation of the different bioactive compounds your body naturally has, but begins to lose as you age, is a great way to keep your mind just as sharp as ever! Extensive research has demonstrated the ability of these bioactive compounds, such as Phosphatidylcholine and N-Acetyl-Cysteine, to alter symptoms of cognitive impairment in a beneficial way.
Suppositories always provide the best absorption into the bloodstream, and our Zeptil Brain Boosters suppositories offer a great way to help your memory, mood, concentration, and more. We understand some of our customers prefer alternate methods of supplementation, and we have you covered as well, just visit our DR Vitamin Solutions brain and memory page. Another great choice in going beyond just helping cognitive function is our Cardio-Juvenate Classic Berry, which science suggests may help with medical conditions such as coronary artery disease, angina, high blood pressure, and more! This is because the chief ingredient, L-arginine helps widen the arteries and therefore increases blood flow which helps each of these conditions.
As always, if you have specific concerns or conditions, we at DR Vitamin Solutions would be happy to make more specific supplement recommendations to compliment your basic foundation. You can leave us a comment here, or use the contact information listed on our website.
