It’s back to school for so many young people and adults this time of year. Wouldn’t it be great to have a little help with mental acuity, memory, and concentration? The demands of our busy lives certainly take their toll on our mental health. Fortunately, there are several natural supplements that can help.
Our product, Acuity, is a blend of Ginkgo biloba leaf extract and other plant based extracts. This blend aids in concentration, focus, and memory enhancement. It also is beneficial in increasing the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) plays an important role in the brain’s neurotransmitter system and its nerve connections. It is vital to brain cell structure and function, making PS essential to overall brain function and cognition. Some research has shown that phosphatidylserine may be beneficial for those with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and for young people during mentally stressful times.
There seems to be no limit to the health benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids derived from fish, including outstanding brain health! Omega 3 fish oil combats inflammation of the brain, improves mood disorders, aids in alleviating depression, increases the brain’s cognitive function, and leads to overall positive mental health. Consumption of fish derived, polyunsaturated Omega 3’s have been linked with a reduced risk of mental impairment due to age. We have an EPA/DHA-SP product that is highly concentrated and molecularly distilled to be free of toxins!
Another important supplement with many health benefits is Vitamin D. Most people in the United States have low Vitamin D levels due to poor diet and lack of time in the sun without sunscreen. Vitamin D helps ward off depression, especially for those affected by seasonal low light conditions (also referred to as Seasonal Effective Disorder). Another important note about Vitamin D is that low levels are associated with higher risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer ’s disease.
