Feeling Forgetful? Nutrient Tag-Team EASES Your Mind

Happy Valentine’s Day. I hope you have something fun planned with a loved one.

Speaking of plans—remember that time you FORGOT Valentine’s and were in the doghouse for days?

Or maybe it was your keys, a doctor’s appointment, or even the waitress’s name that’s served you coffee for the last three years instead.

Regardless of WHAT you’ve blanked on, those little forgetful moments leave far more than just frustration in their wake…

“Brain burps” can shake your confidence and lead to an avalanche of anxiety.

After all, you can’t help but wonder if it’s “just age” or something more serious. And you worry that it could be the beginning of a downward spiral.

The truth is many minor memory lapses have benign causes. Stress, poor sleep, depression, low B12, and prescription side effects are common causes.

If your general mood and personality haven’t changed and you aren’t experiencing SUDDEN confusion or memory loss, they’re likely nothing more than everyday senior moments.

And your doctor can confirm it with some simple tests.

But that doesn’t mean you have to take them lying down. New research published in the journal Nutrients just provided us with another option.

It turns out energizing Guayusa tea (a favorite of the indigenous people of the Amazon) combined with Lion’s Mane mushrooms could help strengthen and stimulate your brain in ways no prescription can.

Guayusa and Lion’s Mane target different areas of the brain.

The tea improves cognitive performance and perceptions of happiness. Meanwhile, the mushroom boosts working memory, complex attention, reaction time, and mood.

They’re both great options to boost your brain power. But as you age, they’re far from the only weapon you can add to your brain-supporting.

  • Creatine is an amino acid that supports cognition, memory, and energy production.
  • CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that fights oxidative damage, increases mitochondrial concentrations in the brain, and converts food to energy used throughout the body.
  • Antioxidants such as vitamins A and C and phytonutrients (including bioflavonoids, flavanols, and polyphenols) protect your brain from dementia-linked oxidative damage and inflammation.
  • In addition to CoQ10, alpha-lipoic acid, astaxanthin, selenium, and vitamin E provide mitochondrial support (the energy-producing motors of our cells) to boost your brain’s energy.
  • The herbs curcumin and bacopa decrease inflammation and act as powerful antioxidants supporting brain health and better memory.

P.S. Shocking new research will have you firing your sofa to SAVE your brain.
