Antioxidants and Omega-3 nutrients boost mental health so you can enjoy life. Brain vitamins and supplements help you think!
The Most Important Thing You Can Do To Improve Brain Health...
Your brain is your hungriest organ . . . Feed it right with brain vitamins and supplements. Experience sharper thinking and brighter moods.
Your brain is a real pig.
Now, don't take this the wrong way but it's true. Your brain hogs up the nutrients your body takes in.
Weighing only 3 pounds, your brain takes in a full 25% - one quarter – of your body's entire glucose and oxygen supply. And more than its fair share of other nutrients as well.
Have you ever noticed how hungry you get doing brain-heavy activities like reading? In fact anthropologists speculate that increased access to nutrition – either through eating meat or cooked tubers - was what allowed us to develop bigger brains. Otherwise we just couldn't get enough nutrition to support its activity.
Cynthia Green, PhD, founder and director of the Memory Enhancement Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, reported in a recent issue of Prevention Magazine that the food you eat is the most important factor in how well your brain performs each day.
And keep in mind, brain power is not just about how quick-witted you are. Your brain also manages your emotions. A healthy brain also supports healthy moods.
So What Does Your Brain Need To Improve Its Performance And Do Its Job?
- The most important building block for your brain is good fats, specifically omega-3 fatty acids. Like electrical wire insulation, this fat sheathes the neurons, allowing them to transfer messages smoothly. In fact one study showed that people who consumed more omega-3 fatty acids simply had bigger brains.

- Antioxidants are crucial for your brain. Your brain uses up about 17% of your body's energy. And in burning up this energy it produces enormous amounts of damaging free radicals. Antioxidants, especially Vitamins A, C, E and phytonutrients from the cabbage family, are critical for brain protection. Polyphenols like epigallocatechin in green tea; quercetin in apples; and the ones that give blueberries their deep blue color all help your brain with their unique antioxidant powers.
- Phosphatides from soybeans like inositol, help your brain build synaptic membranes – the part of your brain cells that transmit or pick up signals. These nutrients have been associated with sharpening your focus.
Vitalive's antioxidant multivitamin and multinutrient supplement provides more antioxidants to your brain than any other daily vitamins . . . as well as phosphatides and other key brain foods.
Feed your brain vitamins and other nutrients it needs and experience a new level of mental acuity and plain good feeling. Because there is nothing like good nutrition to improve brain power.
