Protect your brain
As degenerative brain disease is quickly becoming a worldwide epidemic, it is important to focus on reducing inflammation in your brain in order to keep it healthy and bright.
Every cell in your body requires nutrition to function properly and that includes your brain. Without proper nutrition, inflammation begins to develop. Inflammation in your brain may be caused from chemicals in your environment, lack of nutrition, excess sugar, food additives or even dehydration.
It’s a fact that both stress and toxic chemicals play a role in deteriorating your brain. The average person is exposed to far too many chemicals causing excessive inflammation in the brain. Excessive stress just adds fuel to the fire. You have to realize, excessive stress hormone causes a part of your brain to soak up environmental toxins at an accelerated rate. It’s called the hippocampus and is the center for memory retention and recall.
During chronic stress the hippocampus area of your brain becomes open to attack from a variety of inflammatory chemicals, causing the hippocampus to absorb these chemicals like a sponge. Obviously, this concentrated amount of inflammatory chemicals in the memory center of your brain is not a good thing. Chronic stress and excessive levels of stress hormone need to be reduced in order to keep this from happening.
Tune in – turn on
In order to keep your brain optimized, you must feed all of the energy centers that influence it. When your brain is fed properly, it will have a positive impact on your cognitive ability and will fuel your body for maximum performance. As a result you will be happier, more creative and motivated with focus and mental clarity.
If you want a healthy brain, you must be proactive and take the necessary steps to feed your brain what it needs to perform at its best. However, you must first understand how stress and inflammation play a role in the breakdown of homeostasis and the deterioration of your brain.
Feed your brain what it needs
The beauty of adaptogenic herbs is that they influence all of the energy centers of your brain and have a direct impact on brain inflammation. By combining adaptogenic herbs with specific nutrients that affect neurological activity, you can have a brain that functions in perfect harmony and keeps your hippocampus in check.
There are specific nutrients that allow you to create acetylcholine and dopamine. Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter responsible for the speed with which your brain process information. It is a known fact that a deficiency of acetylcholine is associated with an aging brain.
Your brain also needs dopamine, the neurotransmitter responsible for powering up your brain. Proper dopamine levels influence creativity, focus and the ability to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
