The Essentials of Brain Health
There’s no time like the present to start protecting your brain. Alzheimer’s, dementia, and ‘old-timers’ often start developing decades before the symptoms appear.
Supplying your brain with essential nutrients right now is the key to avoiding future memory issues down the road. It’s amazing how the very best things for focus, concentration, clarity, and a present mind are the same things that can also help you later in life.
TianChi, our flagship formula is built on essential nutrients needed for everyday brain function. From everyday common tasks to the more complicated protection and maintenance, the herbs and nutrients provide the essentials for a healthy brain.
Choline, for example, is a great preventative for age-related memory issues. Choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, required for brain speed, memory retrieval, and a healthy nervous system.
It also helps lower homocysteine levels, an inflammatory chemical that can cause neurodegeneration and the buildup of amyloid plaques.
Two other nutrients involved in lowering homocysteine levels are B12 and folic acid. This can only happen when they are in the proper methylated forms though, just like the ones we use in all of our formulas.
Methylcobalamin and methylfolate are easily absorbed and used by your nervous system. Deficiencies of these important vitamins are associated with brain atrophy in the elderly, and are integral to repairing and maintaining your neurons.
Adaptogenic Herbs for Inflammation
Of course elevated stress adds to the fire in your brain, especially in the hippocampus or memory center. Adaptogenic herbs have been shown to lower this inflammatory marker and create brain coherence and communication.
Herbs like ashwagandha, reishi, and rhodiola not only lower stress - but are also powerful antioxidants for overall health.
This combination of nutrients and herbs forms a baseline of nutrition with the essentials needed for overall health to happen. We all know prevention is the best medicine and there isn’t anything better for priming your brain for those golden years than TianChi – the ultimate stress and brain essential!
