Have you ever felt dumb, slow, or stupid? We all have. It’s not your fault, it’s biology. After every thought, taste, sight, or sound we experience, a piece of sticky brain trash is left behind on our brain highways. The more sticky trash that is left behind, the more cluttered our highways become and the longer it takes to navigate them. In reality, this means it takes you longer to think, respond, react, and come up with that witty remark you wish you had ten minutes ago.
Due to our hyper-aroused culture and state of the world, our brains are full of trash. Most of us don’t know we have brain trash building up, or know-how to clean it out. For those that know, they may not have or make the time to clean their brains. After all, it does take some daily effort. Exercising at a moderate intensity, eating 7-10 servings of vegetables, and staying away from sugar, alcohol, stress, and processed foods isn’t quite easy for us all.
We need help. We are working too hard, accidents happen, stress builds, and insecurities mount in our careers or relationships. Our trash builds up and we can’t hire a maid for our brain’s messy room…hmm or can we?
Fortunately, China and India have been leading the way in using herbs for centuries to assist in daily life. Research on an Ayurvedic herb called Brahmi (bacopa monnieri) has shown that it works on the gut, brain, and nervous system to cause cellular regeneration while clearing out brain plaque, (scientifically know as Beta-amyloid proteins.) This means new cells are formed and the plaque is cleared. This way you can think faster, learn more efficiently, and focus on your task at hand.
Another great smart herb is from China and called Matcha Green Tea. This is a form of high quality green tea that was dried in the shade to keep the chlorophyll and living enzymes intact. It’s high in L-Theanine, an amino acid. It helps with stress, improves learning and concentration, and may even reduce the jitters brought on by too much caffeine in coffee or cola.
An unknown healthy brain food is nutritional hemp! Our organic hemp juice is green and full of chlorophyll, phytocannabinoids, vitamins, and minerals. Hemp contains the perfect ratio of Omega 3:6 for humans, which lubricates the brain. The importance of these fatty acids becomes most obvious when they're lacking. People who don't get enough omega-3s in their diet face an increased risk of developing conditions such as dementia, depression, attention-deficit disorder, dyslexia and schizophrenia [source: ScienceDaily].
Chlorophyll, found in large quantities in hemp, is high in oxygen and can help carry oxygen around the body and to the brain. This rapidly improves blood oxygenation and helps cleanse the body. It is a dietary source of magnesium which can also be found in green leafy vegetables, young cereal grasses, and chlorella. These are all alkaline-forming foods which promote healthy pH levels in the body, and particularly in the gut, which in turn helps good bacteria to thrive. [Source: CalorieBee].
Hemp was also patented all the way back in 2003. Some highlights from the patent:
•Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties
•Useful in the treatment of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory, and autoimmune diseases.
•Can protect the brain from acute and chronic issues - limits neurological damage following stroke and trauma.
•Treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia.
•Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as CBD, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses.
So as you can see, there are many solutions to a healthy, younger brain, and with Better Brain+ we've put quite a few of them to work for you. We can hire a maid for our brains, and she costs less than a cup of black coffee each day - and won't stain your teeth. Her name is Better Brain+ and she contains a special blend of organic hemp, organic bacopa, and organic matcha to keep your brain healthy and happy.
