Do you know this feeling? I love it!
However, this is not always the case. I bet you have experienced waking up with a foggy and heavy brain, feeling incapable of completing even the simplest tasks.
Having experienced brain fog myself, I know how frustrating and debilitating it is, especially if your daily tasks rely on high-level brain performance.
There are many causes of brain fog. Nutrient deficiencies, thyroid problems, hormonal and digestive issues, chronic infections, and heavy metal toxicity are the most common culprits. It is necessary to find the cause of the problem in order to eliminate it. But this can be a lengthy process.
Here are 5 top nutrients that quickly enhance your brain function:
Gingko Biloba: my favourite herb! It has a profound ability to improve brain clarity and the way the brain receives information. It works by enhancing blood flow to the brain and decreasing oxidative stress. You may notice a difference in as little as 2-4 weeks.
Bacopa Monnieri: Gingko’s best mate! Both herbs work together enhancing brain action. Bacopa stimulates the parts of the brain that influence emotions, appetite, learning, mood, sleep and temperature control (a.k.a. serotonergic receptors), making them work faster and more effectively. You may notice some effects after just 4hours with full benefits experienced after a few weeks.
Korean Ginseng: Nature’s powerhouse! Works within minutes; smoothly but effectively enhancing the brain’s engine.
Phosphatidylcholine: encourages elasticity of our brain cells and promotes clarity within days. Supports acetylcholine – the neurotransmitter responsible for focus and alertness.
Zinc: A must-have! Zinc plays a part in many body functions. It’s widely believed that zinc supplementation makes everything function better. Most of the population are deficient in this mineral, so I recommend 25 mg of Zinc to almost everyone.
