Natural Brain Supplements
Cognition: “The mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses.” Truly, nature’s gift that keeps on giving. Until illness or age begin to take it away. Which, thankfully, can be slowed and even prevented.
Cognitive decline isn’t “natural”
We used to think that when it comes to cognition, age eventually takes its toll. It seemed natural.
But the number of years you’ve lived is irrelevant.
What’s relevant is how well you’ve lived them—how well you’ve defended yourself against a lifetime of exposure to toxins, stress, trauma, unhealthy food, and other threats.
Here’s a list of trusted, proven natural brain supplements to keep your wits about you.
A tree that lives for 2,500 years has something special going on. That’s the estimated age of a ginkgo tree in China. And that’s how long Chinese and Indian medicine have used its leaves to improve memory.
We recommend ginkgo for that reason, and also to:
Protect and improve mental processing speed
Relieve and reduce symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s
Numerous studies confirm that ginkgo does that and more.
In a six-month study, 31 patients over 50, with mild to moderate memory impairment, received either a ginkgo supplement or a placebo.
Ginkgo had a positive effect on cognitive function—response speed on computerized tests was significantly better than in the placebo group.
Another study concluded that ginkgo appears to stabilize, and often improve, cognitive performance of dementia patients, and to support short-term memory.
There’s a library full of similar data. Give ginkgo a try after consulting with your doctors. Dosage varies depending on what you’re treating.
