Let’s talk about your brain and how to keep it healthy.
“You are what you eat” is a tale as old as time, but it is SO true. What we feed our body becomes our body, especially our brain! Diets rich in healthy fats, grass-fed meats, and organic fruits & vegetables packed with vitamins and minerals, and loads of water are best for your brain!
Our brain is 73% water, and it only takes 2% dehydration to affect our attention, memory, and other cognitive skills.
The recommended daily water consumption is half your body weight in ounces of water. For example: If you weigh 200 lbs, you should drink 100 ounces of pure water. Although that task might sound daunting, the benefits of consistent water consumption are extremely beneficial.
When you are fully hydrated, your brain will thank you by:
– Helping to balance your mood and emotions
– Maintaining memory function
– Increasing blood flow and oxygen to your brain
– Preventing and relieving headaches
– Reducing stress
Our brains are roughly 60% fat by dry weight, making it the fattiest organ in the body!
Fat, in the forms of omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids, are vital for optimized brain health and function. But why?! Low levels of omega-3s result in brain shrinkage equivalent to two years of structural brain aging.
To get these awesome fats into the brain, you need Phosphatidylcholine (PC for short)! PC is a major component of cell membranes and works to transport DHA and EPA into the brain, creating optimized functionality.
In short, PC is cognition ammunition!
Vitamins and minerals are utilized in every cellular function in our body, brain included!
A healthy diet with a variety of organic fruits and vegetables ensures enough diversity of vitamins and minerals for optimized usage.
B-Vitamins, which the Keto//OS® Max are packed full of, assist in making the neurotransmitters of the central nervous system help nerve-cell membranes quickly send and receive cell to cell communication.
Both vitamins and minerals help convert food into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) that all cells use for energy, especially fuel-hungry brain cells.
Good nutrition creates health in all areas of our existence.
Invest in what you put into your body, not because you want to look & feel better, but because you want to be BETTER. Our mind and body are not separate, what affects one affects the other.
