How to Keep Your Brain Healthy:
A healthy lifestyle can help protect, nourish, and revitalize your brain. This includes:
- Omega-3 fats. The omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) keep the dopamine levels in your brain high, increase neuronal growth in the frontal cortex of your brain, and increase cerebral circulation. NeoPak and NeoCell both contain DHA and EPA.
- Exercising. Exercise lets your brain to work at optimum capacity by causing nerve cells to multiply, making BDNF, strengthening their interconnections and protecting them from damage.
- Sleeping well. It’s during sleep that your mental energy is restored, and a lack of sleep causes your brain to stop producing new cells. Long term sleep problems shrink the brain.
- Eating healthy whole foods. Like the rest of your body, your brain depends on healthy foods to function.
- Getting out into the sun. This will help you maintain optimal vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is involved in maintaining the health of your brain. Vitamin D receptors are found in the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous. Vitamin D levels are an integral part of many neurophysiological mechanisms.
Vitamin D also improves your brain’s detoxification process. For children and pregnant women, getting enough vitamin D is especially crucial, as it plays a major role in protecting infants’ brains from the vaccine induced disorders known as autism. NeoPak contains the 100% daily recommendation for Vitamin D
- Challenging your brain. Mind-training exercises help keep your brain fit as you age. This can be something as simple as doing crossword puzzles or playing board games that get you thinking.
- Avoiding foods that contain artificial sweeteners and additives. Substances such as aspartame (NutraSweet) and MSG, which are common in processed foods, can damage your brain. For instance, consuming a lot of aspartame inhibits the ability of enzymes in your brain to function normally, and high doses of the sweetener leads to neurodegeneration.
All of these things will help not only your brain but also your entire body. So heal the brain and heal the body!
