6 Supplements for Brain Health, Healing Brain Injury, Preventing Dementia


Brain health has become one of my passions after my own acquired brain injury in 2014. I worked extremely hard at my own recovery and my constant research on brain health has me updating my list of research continually. Here are my latest finds:

Huperzine A: This is an active ingredient in TCM, club moss. This ingredient helps neurotransmitters which are extremely important for memory.

Phosphatidyl Serine: This is a nutrient that helps regenerate neurons and help mental capacity. People with dementia taking it, have seen a reverse in their symptoms according to Dr Khalsa who specializes in dementia care. He recommends taking 300 mg a day, broken into 100 mg with each meal, 3 times a day.

Vitamin E: This vitamin shields neurons from free radicals that damage cells and can also help regenerate neurotransmitters.

Coenzyme Q10: This nutrient helps neurons produce energy for proper function. It is also extremely good for the heart!

Ginkgo: This herb maximizes blood flow to the brain and helps protect neurons from free radicals.

DHA: DHA is usually manufactured from algae and is an important building block of fat for brain function. (Do not mistake for DHEA!)

Eating cold water fish will always be a great way to feed your brain health because of the fatty acid compounds that fish have. Hemp oil is a choice for people who are either vegan or allergic to fish. Hemp oil has a great presence of fatty acid chains, only plant based.

If you'd like to learn more about natural healing and herbs, the Sacred Herbal Certification Course over at Secrets of Sedona, is a great way to dive deep into plants, plant medicine, and how to really utilize what is around you. I'd love to have you join the class.
