Fuel Your Brain Like You Do Your Body
Would you believe me if I told you that too many people, including health freaks, neglect one of the most important muscles in their body?
Well it’s true! Can you guess what it is?
If you guessed the brain you are correct.
I myself am a ecstatic health freak. I love taking care of my body, I love supplements, I love going to the gym and learning about healthy practices, I love it all! BUT, I have always neglected the importance of that one very important muscle until recently. MY BRAIN!
Your brain needs to be taken care of just like your body. You feed your body, you exercise your body, you train your body. The same needs to be done with your brain. After much research and self experimentation I have found some great solutions for taking care of your brains health.
1) Feed it! There are certain foods that have excellent nutrients for your brain, especially foods with omega 3 and DHA. Examples of foods with these nutrients are: fish, eggs, and milk. If you simply Google omega 3 and DHA you will find a huge list of resources that will tell you what foods are great for these nutrients.
2) Supplementation! Just like you take a vitamin for your body, you should be taking a vitamin for your brain. I have researched many of these supplements and have narrowed it down to my favorite. Braintech 1.0 is one of the newest on the market and has some of the latest most beneficial ingredients. It’s like an overall super food for the brain that also helps with focus and alertness. Basically it helps transport choline to the brain along with other nutrients that not only stimulate the brain, but provide long term health for the brain. The focus you get when your on it is amazing as well. The other thing I liked about this sites product was that they donate $1 of every sale to the Fischer Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. I thought it was pretty cool that they are helping people out as well.
3) Exercise! Your brain needs exercise just like your body to stay in shape. This is simple. Reading can help stimulate your brain. Reading fantasy or fiction books helps stimulate your imagination and visionary use of your brain. Crossword puzzles are a huge one. Basically if consistently challenging your brain to think, you are getting some great brain exercise. There are also programs you can find on line that are basically games that will challenge your cognitive skills as well.
So, to sum everything up for a start on your brain health there are three key concepts and practices to get involved in. Feed your brain with foods high in omega 3 oils and DHA. Take a vitamin for your brain like the one in the article. Exercise your brain consistently. With a combination of these three brain boosting steps you will be on your way to a healthy lifestyle and a healthy brain.
I wish you all the best of health!
