What are brain health complexes?
Brain health complexes are specifically formulated to support the health of the brain, nervous tissue and nervous function.
What do brain health complexes do in the body?
Your brain is made up of nervous tissue. Many nutrients are required for brain and nervous system health. Some nutrients are required for structure and cell-to-cell communication. Brain health complexes usually contain B vitamins, choline, and coQ 10, as well as healthy fats.
Omega 3 DHA contributes to normal brain function. DHA is required in the structures of brain tissue.
Potassium contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system and is required for nerve transmission, essential for nerve cell communication.
Magnesium contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system and is required for the inhibition of nerve impulses, which is important for proper nerve communication.
B vitamins 1, 2, 3 and 6 contribute to normal functioning of the nervous system and are required for the nerve coating: this coating helps to direct impulses. Vitamin B5 (or pantothenic acid) contributes to normal mental performance particularly to memory. Vitamin B12 contributes to normal psychological function and normal functioning of the nervous system. And deficiency is associated with cognitive disorders.
Vitamin C contributes to a normal functioning nervous system, as well as being needed for collagen production in blood vessels. Flexible blood vessels are needed to ensure good blood flow and nutrient distribution to the brain cells.
Biotin and Iodine have also been shown to contribute to a normal functioning nervous system.
Why do I need a brain health complex?
Many people would benefit from a brain health complex, especially those who struggle to concentrate and focus. Our modern lifestyles are full of mental pressure. We are expected to give everything we have in our work place, and then come home and give it all again to our family and social community. Sometimes, we need some mental and nervous support to help us through. People with anxiety and nervous disorders may also benefit from a brain health complex. Ensuring that your nerves and brain have sufficient nutrients to function is vital.
How do I take brain health complexes?
Brain health complexes come as capsules, tablets or oils. They should be taken with food once or twice per day.
