If you want to keep your mind sharp and improve your memory and focus, there are several things that you can do. You need to stay hydrated, you need to make sure you get enough sleep each night, you need to get some exercise, and you need to eat what your brain needs.
So what does your brain need?
Two of the best thing you can feed your head are Omega-3 and antioxidants. Antioxidants work as anti-inflammatory agents, helping to reduce inflammation that has your brain feeling cluttered and slow. Omega-3 fatty acids can also help to reduce inflammation and are critical to building the cell tissue in your brain. Omega-3 is to brain cells and nerve cells essentially as protein is to muscles.
So how do we get more antioxidants and Omega-3 into our system? Here are some quality ingredients you can count on:
- Fatty fish. Salmon, albacore tuna, cod, and tilapia are all loaded with fatty acids. These fish are loaded with fatty acids that can help your brain. For best results, you should have seafood three nights a week, and you should look for wild-caught fish, not farmed fish.
- Walnuts. These are the perfect snack if you’re trying to improve brain function and if you’re watching your weight. Walnuts are packed with Omega-3, and it’s easy to keep them handy in a bowl so you can just grab a handful between meals.
- Bacopa. What exactly is Bacopa? It’s a plant native to parts of Asia and packed with antioxidants. Add to this the nootropic properties which may help to improve brain function, and the adaptogenic properties, which help your body to manage stress and keep you from getting mentally fatigued.
Bacopa is also known as thyme-leaved gratiola, herb of grace, water hyssop, or Brahmi, and has been known as a medicinal herb in India for centuries.
Working It Into Your Diet
Working quality ingredients into your diet isn’t always easy. We have busy days, busy weeks, and busy months when we don’t have time to go looking for fresh fish at the market, or we don’t have time to sit down for a home-cooked meal.
One great source of Bacopa: MemoryArmor, one of the newer Herbalife products designed specifically to improve short-term memory and mental function. It’s also loaded with vitamin B and D to help keep your brain fighting strong.
Whenever you can, you should take time to sit down and eat a real meal. But you can always use a little help in getting everything you need to live healthily. With Herbalife ingredients, you can feed your brain and your body even when you have to eat on the run.
Of course, there are no magic pills. If you want to get the most out of the quality ingredients found in Herbalife products, you will need to stay in shape, you’ll need to stay rested and hydrated, and you’ll need to keep your brain active. But it’s nice to know that you have a little helper on your side to keep your brain going.
Past a certain age, your brain will naturally start to deteriorate. But we can combat that with healthy habits and healthy eating, and Herbalife can help.
