Feed Your Head

One of the basic aspects of establishing a good diet is figuring out what you need to maintain excellent brain health, especially as you age. Your brain is made of fat, so making sure it is getting supplemental fat is the best place to start.

Fat is one of the only components of brain health not covered by TianChi. It’s nearly impossible to add a great source of fat to a powdered drink, but we’ve got the stress and nutrition parts covered. A good place to start is to concentrate on Omega-3’s and coconut oil. Your brain is about 30% DHA, an Omega-3 found in fish oil that is absolutely essential to brain health. It’s even available in vegan form from algae.

Coconut oil is a excellent oil for cooking and for eating in general. It supplies your brain with medium chain triglycerides (MCT), a type of fat that the brain can use for fuel. It gets converted in the liver into ketones, which can be used directly by the brain. If you don’t enjoy the coconut taste, you can buy pure MCT oil, which is actually better for your brain anyway!

Having good fats are essential for brain health. Your brain and all of your cells depend on good fats for health maintenance. Missing them can lead to brain fog and excessive inflammation – so feed your brain the fat it needs and let TianChi take care of the rest.
