Brain and Nervous System Health
Supplements that feed our brain and nervous system
The brain and nervous system is our body’s information processing and control system that coordinates all our biological functions and brings to our self-awareness as well as the ability to be rational. Our brain and nervous system are fundamental to health. In fact, when brain function deteriorates, such as in cases of dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases, life expectancy is significantly shortened. Therefore, keeping our brains healthy is vital for our health and well-being into old age.
Nutrients that are essential for optimum brain function are antioxidants, such as those found in berries and certain fruits, and omega-3 fatty acids, found in flaxseed oil, nuts (walnuts), green leafy vegetables and, if you are a meat eater, fish (although there are increasing concerns about toxic contamination of our lakes and oceans). The other factors that must be mentioned for maintaining brain health are regular exercise, reduced exposure to aluminium (in processed foods and medications) and moderate intake of alcohol and sugar.
