Ageing & Your Brain

 Your brain is the slowest thing to age. Is that perhaps because it’s protected by the skull? The body recognizes this system as supreme. It’s the most important thing in our body.  Let’s first understand this vital part of our anatomy. The brain is also connected to your spinal cord and nerves that branch off that. This is also protected. It’s the bones of the spine (vertebrae) that are protecting the spinal cord. It’s an entire system that’s all connected. 

Your brain is the master controller of every cell, tissue and organ in your body. It’s through your nervous system that you perceive the world, adapt to stress and coordinate all bodily functions. Can taking nootropics really help? Absolutely! That’s why Yootropics Brain is designed to help you slow ageing through optimization of brain health or cognitive function. When we previously thought of brain enhancement- we used drugs or nervous system stimulants like caffeine. However, coffee, and you can take a little break! When you swap caffeine as a brain booster and mix it up with nootropics instead, you’re enhancing cognitive function without the anxiety or come down. There’s no crash. You’re just working better, the way you’re designed to. 

Yootropics is an Australian company leading the way in the nootropics market to support you with brain health. Brain disease like Alzheimer’s is on the rise and we are aware of becoming educated in how we need to take care of our brain & nervous system. I’m an advocate of chiropractic care because Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in removing nervous system interference to allow clearer communication from brain to body. The scientific and specific chiropractic adjustments restore optimal communication to cells via the pathways of the nervous system. This is where regeneration can start to occur. 

It’s literally clear information to our DNA. But nutrition is also information to our DNA and cells. It’s not merely calories. This is why I studied superfood nutrition as an elective when obtaining my certification as a Food, Lifestyle & Wellness Coach. I’ve always been excited about what’s possible when it comes to slowing ageing.  At almost 49 years old, I’m excited to enter my fifties with the knowledge on what we can do to assist our bodies to heal, repair and renew through the workings of the nervous system. Our bodies are capable of absolute vitality when we give it the right environment. We were taught that the two best diets for slowing ageing were the Mediterranean diet and Japanese diet. 

Mediterranean diets are rich in olives and olive oil. Good fats from plants are crucial. I wrote about it in my first best seller called, Eat Fat, Be Lean. The nervous system and the hormones (particularly the sex hormones) are made up of fats and cholesterol and so we need to fuel our bodies with these EFA’s / essential fatty acids. Native to the Mediterranean region is the Pinus Pinister Stem Bark, another nootropic ingredient responsible for an increase in cerebral blood flow.  The Japanese diet has lower levels of protein and  is mostly plant based, with a healthy dose of good fats. Plant based diets could mean a deficiency in B12 and B6 which may accelerate brain illness like dementia as well as other diseases. That’s why Yootropics Brain has included these crucial B group nootropics as one of the 12 stacked nutrients, in your daily dose. 

Dozens of studies have been known to show that exercise and even just walking can prevent our brains from ageing and that’s because there’s better blood flow. Again, blood flow to the brain is what we desire for brain health and our team designed this supreme natural ‘smart drug’ to do just that!
