Brain Health - Omega 3 and CoQ10
Because none of us are likely to star in the sequel to Steve Martin's "The
Man with Two Brains," we won't ever have a spare one to fall back on and
therefore we need to be satisfied with the brain we have. And more to the
point, we need to take extraordinarily good care of it. Our brains are our
command center, our body's mission control and when something goes wrong,
it can adversely affect everything. Luckily there are some proactive and
even fun ways to enhance healthy brain function.
Feed your Head: Eat up the good stuff
It is no great mystery that eating right can actually make the brain
function more effectively. Eggs can enhance brain development and memory
and contain 12 vitamins and minerals.1 There are many more
"brain foods" exploited as such for their nutritional value and high doses
of Omega-3 fatty acids, thought to be the ultimate in antioxidant brain
food. Some include broccoli, blueberries, tomatoes, nuts, and leafy greens
to name a few.2 The two most beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids are
eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (EPA and DHA), present in many
food sources like fish and also available in quality supplements. The real
trick is to increase your intake of coveted Omega-3 fatty acids while
limiting the consumption of omega-6 fatty acids that are considered unhealthy
in large amounts. And when this ratio is imbalanced, eating a variety of
Omega-3 enriched foods plus taking quality supplements can step in and fill
Strain your Brain: Brain Teaser Benefits
According to the Alzheimer's Association as many as 5.3 million people in
the United States are living with Alzheimer's.3 One of the risks
of developing Alzheimer's seems to be linked with other health conditions
like heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
These are diseases that can damage the heart or blood vessels and can
precipitate the onset of Alzheimer's or vascular dementia. Some tips for
staying as healthy as possible would be to watch your weight, avoid
smoking, limit alcohol intake, and exercise your body and brain. It is
popular opinion in the scientific community that keeping your brain active
can help stave off or even avoid Alzheimer's disease. So stimulate your
mind with crossword puzzles, intriguing novels, theater, playing cards and
chess and other mind-teasing endeavors. Raising mental acuity can lower
your risk for age-related brain deterioration.
Be a Brainiac: Some supplement sources
There are numerous nutritional supplements that can lend their expertise to
support healthy brain function. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally
occurring vitamin-like substance found in every cell of the body, but whose
levels naturally decrease as we age. CoQ10 is responsible for promoting
heart health, increasing energy levels, and aiding the immune system as
well as helping to keep blood pressure levels in normal range. CoQ10 comes
in various forms, mostly related to absorption levels. Omega 3 supplements
provide the daily need for essential Omega-3 fatty acids. It may help lower
triglyceride levels, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and enhance immune
Full spectrum multi vitamins provide key nutrients to promote healthy
heart, brain, eye and bone functions and some are fortified with
antioxidants which help to protect healthy cells in the body.
So go on Einstein, solve that equation. Equipped with the right tools,
maybe it's not that hard after all.
