My 4 Most-Recommended Brain Boosters

My 4 Most-Recommended Brain Boosters

One of the best brain-boosting compounds is Ginkgo Biloba, which  has been shown to inhibit the formation of the enzyme MAO-B, which emerging evidence suggests may contribute to cognitive impairment as we age. Ginkgo also may help increase circulation in the brain, as well as support cells in the brain’s hippocampus.

Bacopa monnieri, my second recommended brain booster, may improve higher-order cognitive processes such as learning and memory. In a three-month study published in Psychopharmacology, subjects taking this herbal extract demonstrated significantly improved speed of visual information processing, learning rate, and memory.

Brain booster number three, huperzine A, is a plant extract derived from Chinese club moss. Researchers believe it works by improving the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that transmit signals from a neuron, or nerve cell, to a target cell across a synapse.

Phosphatidylserine is my recommended brain booster number four. This nutrient may help restore receptors on brain cells. These receptors permit neurotransmitters to communicate with neurons.
