Have You Tested Your Brain Health lately?
Many of my long-time fans remember that Magnesium was my favourite vitamin supplement. If you do, then you should remember my John Kerry/Mitt Romney moment when I flipped-flopped to liking Omega 3’s more.
Why do I like Omega 3? Omega 3 (Not 1, not 2 but 3) fatty acids are not just anti-inflammatories, but they are un-inflammatory.
Why is inflammation not my friend? Inflammation is the internal process that facilitates disease and symptoms. It is a complicated and multi-step process. Inflammation is caused by injuries and disease, but also what we eat. Mass produced and processed foods all cause inflammation as does Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. Basically all the foods we Americans love cause inflammation.
Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9 what is the difference? If you remember chemistry the number tells us the structure and shape of the molecule; so not all Omegas are created equal. The amazing thing about Omega 3’s anti-inflammatory process is it supports the body’s natural healing ability and is also crucial to brain health. Most of you know this. That’s why you take your fish oil.
How do I know if I am getting enough Omega 3? Not only do we need to know if you are getting enough Omega 3 but are you taking the right product? Not all fish oils are created equal. Testing can be done to measure three things. Amount of inflammation, how much Omega 3 is in your cells, and brain health. What if I told you I could have your Brain and cellular health tested by a Nobel Prize nominated military scientist?
How do you measure inflammation and brain health? A prick of the finger gives you a wealth of information. Your brain’s health is measured by looking at essential fatty acid bio markers in your blood cells. These fatty acids are considered essential nutrients in the diet because they are a significant component of the cells that make up your central nervous system. Essentially the cells in the nervous system are made from fatty acid in your diet. To have a healthy nervous system your body requires sufficient levels of certain fatty acids (EPA & DHA) in your blood. A healthy nervous system is needed for proper regulation of all your body’s systems. Measuring and tracking your fatty acid levels over time is one of the most important things you can do to protect and optimize the health of your brain and body.
A healthy brain is an efficient brain. Your brain’s connections can become stronger or weaker over time due to many physical, nutritional, or emotional events. When your brain’s connections become stronger, your cognitive performance improves. Likewise, when you experience stress or nervous system interference, your cognitive performance is reduced.
This assessment also tests the capacity and efficiency of your brain. Focus, attention, memory, processing speed is all measured. A nutritional recommendation can be made, and a few changes to diet and supplements and we can improve your brain health.
The assessment is powered by the Brain Resource® International Database, a scientifically and clinically validated tool utilized by a research network of over 350 scientists. Your results show how you rank compared to others your same age.
