Brain Health - Omega 3 and CoQ10


LifeSource Vitamins


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 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 the gap.

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 system functions.

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.
