Questions and Answers

At the moment my brain is kinda of like a cloud. Out of control & scattered?My question is how do I compress this huge way of thinking into a solid sphere. My mind only keeps getting enhanced in the daily stuff I do because I take everything as a competition. I cant seem to finish my sentences because I studder at times. Its not a studdering problem I just realize that my mind is not at on an even place with my vocal reaction time. An example would be “I have capitalism class in the morning.” I would slur it and instead I would say “I have calssitalism in th-” I wouldn’t finish the sentence knowing I mispronounced. These past couple days I have been able to remember my dreams so clearly that in my dream I actually believe its real to the point where I’m actually in my bedroom looking out of my curtain & seeing what was”The end of the world.” At times I’ll get up & through the day I’ll remember my dreams but sometimes theres a kickstart. If something happens during my day that has something to do with one of my dreams I just get flooded with all my dreams & enjoy it to be quiet honest. So basically to clarify my question….

How does one compress the mind to think more solidily

*When I’m bored I do multiplication like 78×63. I dont use paper

P.s. I refuse to revise what I’m about to say in my head because I see it as a waste of time. There is certain situations of course but in normal daily life, there is no need

*I’m 17

*I have trained my brain to never cease because if Im not doing anything to harness my mind… Someone else is.

Take at least 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, or the recommended dose of a high quality of fish oil daily, like Carlsons, or Melrose: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or its FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it! Females may benefit by balancing the DHA, & EPA versions of Omega 3 in fish, or krill** oil with ALA flaxseed oil Omega 3, or at least one heaped tablespoonful of ground flaxseed, daily. Vegetarians: Google: “Omega 3; algae; supplies” and use with flaxseed. Use the www.mercola.com ** SEARCHBAR. Dr. J Cannell, at Http://vitaminDcouncil.org recommends 20,000iu of vitamin D3 daily, with frequent testing to ensure levels of at least 100nmol/l are maintained, for psychosis, and then reduce to around 5000 IU daily (Dr. Mercola recommends 5000 IU to 8000 IU for most healthy people). Dr. Kim, at www.drbenkim.com holds similar views.

FOR PEOPLE NOT SUFFERING FROM PSYCHOSIS (HALLUCINATIONS & DELUSIONAL STATES): Dr Mercola, at Http://www.mercola.com advises: in the winter months, if not getting sufficient daily exposure to strong light, go to a doctor and ask for a 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, blood test. When you get the results, don’t follow the typical “normal” reference range, as these are too low. The OPTIMAL value that you’re looking for is 45-52 ng/ml (115-128 nmol/l)”. The company which tests your levels has to be one of those using the correct form of test, and this topic is addressed via the searchbar at Mercola.com – “vitamin D3; testing”. View Http://drbenkim.com/vitamin-d-facts.htm & Http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articl… 59% of Americans are deficient in the extremely important vitamin D3, with their lowest levels occurring in late winter, and early spring. Canadians get even less sunlight exposure. People with the lowest levels are 11 times more likely to suffer depression (psychosis can occur with major) depression.

Dr. Cannell advises that the co-factors most often deficient in the American diet, and necessary to optimise its absorption, and utilisation are magnesium, zinc, boron, and vitamin K2. I recommend using either health food/vitamin stores, or Googling: ” … ; supplies” rather than risking any old, or substandard products at supermarkets, or even on pharmacy shelves.

Vitamin A and vitamin D3 compete for absorption using the same metabolic pathway, so I no longer recommend cod liver oil as a source of either. Take the 2 separately, at least a few hours apart, if using both, but most people don’t need vitamin A if eating a reasonably healthy, balanced diet. The Omega 3 and vitamin D3 will act as preventatives for a wide variety of disorders and diseases, both physical and psychological, as well as boosting your immune system, and are 2 that most people in Western countries are deficient in, so I suggest that you recommend them to others as well. The best dietary source of vitamin K2 is natto (Only FERMENTED soy products, like natto are safe for females).

10,000iu/daily is generally regarded as safe daily upper limit for vitamin D3, although some people may need 3 times as much, and it is worth checking AFTER you have been using effective strength supplements for 3 months to make sure you have achieved as safe level according to Dr Mercola’s suggestions. Test every 6 months in late winter, and late summer.

Is it okay to take Vitamin E supplements without asking a doctor?I’m a 16 year old girl and heard that Vitamin E helps the skin, hair, and nails so I bought some supplements from CVS. My mom said that it’s alright because it’s just a vitamin, but I searched online and it said that it’s a fat-soluble vitamin which means it doesn’t flush away when you pee like other vitamins do. Is it possible I could overdose on it?

I’m only taking the recommended amount which is one pill a night, so I think it’s okay. I’m not an adult yet though so I don’t know if that matters. I don’t want to bother asking my doctor though. So is it alright for me to take the supplement daily? I don’t take any multivitamins btw.
@how_j;
Well I’m not old or have cancer, so none of those things apply to me. I just want a straightforward answer. Anyone can copy and paste useless information from some website. I’m capable of using google too, you know.

Posted by Dani
[display_name id=”1″]Vitamin E is LIKELY SAFE for most healthy people when taken by mouth or applied to the skin. Most people do not experience any side effects when taking the recommended daily dose, which is 15 mg.

Vitamin E is POSSIBLY UNSAFE if taken in high doses. If you have a condition such as heart disease or diabetes, don’t take doses of 400 IU/day or more. Some research suggests that high doses might increase the chance of death and possibly cause other serious side effects. The higher the dose, the greater the risk of serious side effects.

There is some concern that vitamin E might increase the chance of having a serious stroke called hemorrhagic stroke, which is bleeding into the brain. Some research shows that taking vitamin E in doses of 300-800 IU each day might increase the chance of this kind of stroke by 22%. However, in contrast, vitamin E might decrease the chance of having a less severe stroke called an ischemic stroke.

There is contradictory information about the effect of vitamin E on the chance of developing prostate cancer. Some research suggests that taking large amounts of a multivitamin plus a separate vitamin E supplement might actually increase the chance of developing prostate cancer in some men.

High doses can also cause nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramps, fatigue, weakness, headache, blurred vision, rash, and bruising and bleeding.
Special Precautions & Warnings:
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: When used in the recommended daily amount, vitamin E is POSSIBLY SAFE for pregnant and breast-feeding women. There has been some concern that taking vitamin E supplements might be harmful to the fetus when taken in early pregnancy. But it is too soon to know if this is an important concern. Until more is known, do no take vitamin E supplements during early pregnancy without talking with your healthcare provider.

Angioplasty, a heart procedure: Avoid taking supplements containing vitamin E or other antioxidant vitamins (beta-carotene, vitamin C) immediately before and following angioplasty without the supervision of a health care professional. These vitamins seem to interfere with proper healing.

Low levels of vitamin K (vitamin K deficiency): Vitamin E might worsen clotting problems in people whose levels of vitamin K are too low.

An eye condition called retinitis pigmentosa: All-rac-alpha-tocopherol (synthetic vitamin E) 400 IU seems to speed vision loss in people with retinitis pigmentosa. However, much lower amounts (3 IU) don’t seem to produce this effect. If you have this condition, it’s best to avoid vitamin E.

Bleeding disorders: Vitamin E might make bleeding disorders worse. If you have a bleeding disorder, avoid taking vitamin E supplements.

Head and neck cancer: Don’t take vitamin E supplements in doses of 400 IU/day or more. Vitamin E might increase the chance that cancer will return.

Prostate cancer: There is concern that taking vitamin E might increase the chance of developing prostate cancer. The effect of vitamin E in men who currently have prostate cancer is not clear. But, in theory, taking vitamin E supplements might worsen prostate cancer in men who already have it.

Surgery: Vitamin E might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using vitamin E at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

DOSING:
For vitamin E deficiency: a typical dose is RRR-alpha tocopherol (natural vitamin E) 60-75 IU per day.

Okay this is another source more likely to fit your needs. Again this is pasted from source. Why? If you are asking this question then you show you can’t use google properly. This is a doctor’s opinion. This answer shows all of the general things you need to know. This also most likely applies to you because you never stated if you have cancer or not. A 16 year old girl can, it is unlikely, have most of the things mentioned above. Also this question also answers thing for other people wanting to know the same thing! 🙂

Vitamin Supplements for TTC couples?I recently had a checkup to make sure everything was ok before we TTC. The doctor mentioned that Folic Acid was important to take when TTC and for the health of the baby which i knew about but i’ve never heard from waht i read online that we should also take Fish Oil vitamins? Has anyone been told they should take fish oil vitamins when ttc by their doctor? Thank you.

Posted by Curios
[display_name id=”1″]Get the One-A-Day PreNatal vitamin pack. It gives you all the recommended Folic Acid, vitamins and minerals. It also has a DHA/EPA supplement, which is the “fish oil” supplement that is good for brain development and function. Or use the total package of supplementation in Brain Fuel Plus found here http://BR1.experienceBA.com

Good luck!

Can Anyone Provide Authentic Procera AVH Review ?

I have been wanting to use the memory supplement for very long now, can anyone provide me Genuine and authentic Procera AVH Reviews. Thanks.

[display_name id=”1″]

While on my trip back to the states from India, i found my cousin using the memory supplement. While it was only a couple of months that she had been using it but the effects she shared with me were interesting. She had researched the product a lot and read actual user testimonials and stuff too from Http://increasememorypower.net/ Go ahead and form your own opinion. According to my experience it does have a positive effect.

Procera AVH” dose it work ?

The infomercial says it will detoxify and re-energize your brain making it 10 to 15 years younger. But I don’t believe it works. Has anyone on here tried it ? Or can you debunk it ?

Posted by Mark M
[display_name id=”1″]

As with many of these highly priced “memory enhancing” products, claims for Procera AVH are based on flimsy folkloric anecdotes from ancient Chinese medicine and extrapolation from incomplete and inconclusive scientific studies.

The main “memory enhancing” components appear to be Vinpocetine, Huperzine A and acetyl-l-carnitine

Acetyl-l-carnitine
This is found in any normal diet (including vegetarian). The highest amounts are found in red meat and dairy products although legumes, nuts, cereals and many fruits contain significant amounts. The precursor carnitine is biosynthesised primarily in the liver and kidneys from the amino acids lysine or methionine. A normal diet should give more than enough of this material without the need for supplements.
Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnitine

Vinpocetine
This is an alkaloid extracted from the periwinkle plant, Vinca minor. In 2003 a clinical trial on "older adults with memory problems" produced inconclusive results. Since vinpocetine is related to other Vinca alkaloids, Vincristine and Vinblastine, that are powerful anti-cancer agents which impair formation of microtubules, there is suspicion that this drug may have similar effects and should be used with extreme caution.
Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinpocetine

Huperzine A
Huperzine A is an alkaloid found in the plant firmoss, Huperzia serrata. Although it has been used in China for centuries for the treatment of swelling, fever and blood disorders, there are no studies in the West showing memory enhancement. Clinical studies in China on early stage treatment of Alzheimer's disease show that huperzine A is comparably effective to the drugs currently on the market.
Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huperzine_A

I’ve seen no evidence to suggest that Procera AVH can “detoxify” your brain any better than a glass of clean water! In fact, taking chemicals that go directly to the brain will introduce "toxins" to the brain. This claim is plain silly!

My conclusion about Procera AVH is that this product may have a marginal effect on memory but, like you, I very much doubt the claims made by the manufacturers.

The Procera AVH, Why does use of its?

How to work Procera AVH.anybody have complete information about this product actuality. Plz give me suggestion.

Questions and Answers

What is wrong with my body?

I used to be in perfect health. YMCA and power walking. I am 54. In 2003 I woke up and the left half of my body was numb. I went to the emergency room. A Neurologist saw damage the size of a grape. He said my left arm will be slightly numb for the rest of my life. He gave me 81mg. Asprin. After a few years I became unusually tired in the afternoon. On Jan 1, 2009, I had two strange dizzy spells and I almost passed out. I immediately got a Bounding heart beat. My eyes went more blurry just as if you abruptly shut off a light switch. My arm suddenly became number but I could still play the guitar well. Doctor gave me either Plavix first or Crestor first I forgot. Anyway I was on both not at the same time. Several times I felt like I was having mini strokes over a several months. My breathing became labored. They said at ER it was anxiety. My heart still Bounding for months and not an answer, my muscle tissue began to break down getting worse every day. I felt like I had Virus-like symptoms inside my body but without the usual symptoms of a virus. My low back muscles began to get weaker. My neck muscles began to get snap crackle and pop. I could hear them snap through a Motorcycle helmet with the engine noise of my Honda scooter. I sold it. My heart went into persistent Atrial Fibrillation. My left arm was numb, but the numbness was coming and going. I felt something strange happen in my brain and heart and my left arm became more numb but this time the numbness was permanent. I heard of the Mini Maze done by Dr. Randall Wolf and he did the Mini Maze Sept. 13th 2011. He took out my appendage where 90% strokes occur. The A-fib is gone and he took me off of Warfarin which I am glad. My virus symptoms went away but now I have Mono. My question is: My muscle weakness is still present and my left arm and left hand is permanently 20 % numb. It doesn't work as well but still works pretty well. I can still play the guitar but I get tired quickly. I believe from my own research that I had a brain stem stroke or a stroke did brain stem was damaged. The brain stem controls breathing. I believe my breathing mechanism is damaged. I still don't breath well and haven't for 2 yrs. Date Nov. 3, 2011. I took a turn for the worst last night. My heart is beating a little harder, about 100 bpm within the range but is uncomfortable and my left arm got number and weaker with noticably less movement. My body feels much weaker. It's beating a little harder. It feels uncomfortable. I easily see it beating in the mirror. It's beating fairly hard and a little too fast. It's hard to do daily tasks such as laundry. I feel like my body is heading for disaster like maybe a heart failure or something bad. I am 6'1 and now weigh 137 lbs. I keep losing pounds every week. Three years ago I weighed 168. I told my family doctor of my rapid weight loss and he told me I look Fine. What do you make of this? Can anyone figure this out? Most of my doctors don't care or think all of this is in my mind. They thought the Afib was in my mind until it was proved! Date right now is Nov. 4, 2011. I am frustrated. I want my life back. I am a very young looking 54 year old guy. Almost 55. My doctors don't have a clue about all of this. Please give me your best answer or if your not sure that's OK too. Mike.

If you still have "mono", any physical activity — other than the stroking of a guitar, can be quite tiring. Breathing can be difficult at any exercise level (walking, going up steps, etc.) when you have "mono".

If you began taking any kind of supplements (vitamins, energy drinks, etc.) you should let your doctor know – or, quit taking them and see if the symptoms you are having improve.

Which supplement should I take to grow taler?

Every day I drink two glasses of milk so I could get calcium and protein. When I drink the second glass I take one pill/ supplement called usana body rox (essentials vitamin & mineral supplement). I take this so I could grow taller but now I'm starting to wonder if it's bad for me? Like I mean it says an adult is suppose to take it 3 times a day but it does'nt say anything about a kid taking it. Does this mean it's bad for me? Can I still take it? Can I take more than one a day? But now my dad has bought me another supplement called omega-3 kids brain health. It says it's suppose to help support healthy brain and cardiovascular functions but the body rox says it maintains good health. The omega 3 kids has omega 3 fatty acids, elcosapentaenoic acid, fish oil, and docosahexaenoic acid but the body rox has alot of vitamins and minerals like vitamin d3 , vitamin b12, calcium, and magnesium. So which one should I take to grow taller? Which one sounds better? Which one will help me if i'm a 13 year old girl trying to grow taller? And how much and when should i take the supplement to grow taller?

My advice? Don't take them, period. They are doing the body more harm than good – MSN
Http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16655168/wid… People spend $20 billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . Those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. So it’s up to consumers to bring health concerns to light. “It’s important to understand the difference between over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements,” say Pieter Cohen, MD, an internist at Cambridge Health Alliance and instructor at Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Mass. The FDA gets involved only after the fact, if the supplement later appears to be causing harm. By that time, the supplement may already have harmed many consumers who used it. “The burden of proof is on the FDA to determine [a supplement] is dangerous and remove it from the market,” Cohen says. Consumer complaints are the primary trigger for investigations. One recent investigation of the dietary weight-loss supplement ephedra resulted in it being banned for sale in the United States.
Example: Protein Shakes poisoning article:
Http://fittipdaily.com/poison-in-your-pr…
China, which has repeatedly been caught exporting contaminated products, is a major supplier of raw supplement ingredients. The FDA has yet to inspect a single factory there.

We have identified a dozen supplement ingredients that we think consumers should avoid because of health risks, including cardiovascular, liver, and kidney problems. We found products with those ingredients readily available in store.

Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.

Questions and Answers

Too many nootropic supplements?

I'm taking 5HTP, Tyrosine, Ashwaganda, and Omega 3 for a mood booster and I've noticed a subtle but pleasant effect on my mood and overall outlook. I occasionally add L-Theanine and Ginko Biloba

I've been reading about Inositol and Choline and I want to add that in

Am i over doing-it with the supplements? Should i cut some out? Is anything dangerous?

Any advice appreciated.

Posted by ElG
[display_name id=”1″]

There is such a thing as overdoing it, yes.
These particular supplements are generally safe to take together in appropriate doses. Most of those have benefits on brain health (memory, focus, etc) and/or mood support, although Ashwagandha is more for stress and the immune system.

Anyway, Choline and Inositol help more with brain health, but not as much directly for mood support. If you are looking for more mood support, I would go more for SAM-e, 5-HTP, and Rhodiola Rosea as the major ones. Good luck and I hope I helped!

Brain booster Supplement?

For memory loss try eating more foods rich in Vitamin B1 (thiamine) ie ~ brewer's yeast, whole grain breads and cereals, meat (pork or liver), nuts, legumes such as peas, beans and lentils and potatoes.

Also take a multi B complex supplement including all the B's ie ~ B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 as they work best as a group….. The B complex of vitamins are essential for a healthy digestive, neural and immune system…… Do not purchase any of the B complex of vitamins individually unless under the specific instructions of a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath.

The need for B1 (and the B complex) increases when we are stressed, during illness and surgery. B1 has beneficial effects on the nervous system and mental attitude and will also aid in digestion and keep nervous system, muscles and heart functioning normally………… The B complex of vitamins will help bolster your system so as you can better deal with the everyday little dramas life presents for us ♥

It is a water soluble complex and as such our bodies can neither produce or store them. Therefore we need to ingest them on a daily basis or suffer the side affects.

When we are placed under added stress the first group of vitamins to be used up will generally be the B complex and as such we need to adjust our intake accordingly…….. When you are stressed and generally frazzled simply take another B complex supplement. As they are a water soluble group any excess you ingest will simply be excreted in your urine.

Also, an L-glutamine supplement taken 3 times daily on an empty stomach will also bolster a healthy immune and nervous system and assist in maintaining muscle function……. It also helps maintain the health of intestinal flora and thus is a digestive aid ♥ Glutamine is a natural amino acid and a naturally occuring antioxidant and does a marvellous job for me at increasing my level of concentration and for bolstering my ability to retain information ♥

Other nutrients which are said to enhance your memory and make you smarter are ~ Fish oils (those found in cold water fishes such as tuna and salmon do a brilliant of levelling out your moods, stress levels and attention to detail) as other posters have already mentioned, Vitamine E (i would suggest eating more foods rich in Vitamin E as opposed to supplementing), grapeseed extract, lipoic acid, Vitamin B3 (niacin), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B12 (cobalamin),folic acid, choline, gingko biloba (i haven't used it myself so unfortunately am unable to recommend a brand for you), gotu kola ………… Obviously none of them will turn you into Albert Einsteen but you'll surely start remembering where you put your keys though buddy ♥

Things that could be robbing you of your precious B complex of vitamins are :- eating too much protein, alcohol, eating too much tinned food, laxatives and diuretics, antiobiotics, antidepressants, penicillin, prednisone and aspirin, otc cold and flu medicines.

Also, try to cut back on drinks such as caffeine, tea, sodas and soft drinks as they are all B complex thieves…….. As well as being great at dehydrating you.

When you take your daily B complex supplement ensure that you take it with some type of calcium rich food ie: low fat cheese or milk or a calcium supplement that contains vitamin D3 as they all work in conjunction with one another.

Quite a handfull of information here …….. Sorry it's a bit long winded but you need to know all this.

Drink loads of fresh filtered water too as the happiest and healthiest body will always be the most hydrated one.

I sincerely wish you the best of health & vitality buddy♥

take care of you♥

Fluoride supplements for 6 month old?

My son is 6 months old and his dr prescribed fluoride supplements to take daily because we have well water. Fluoride is toxic and doesn't leave your body and is bad for brain development. I'm not really for it.. My inlaws gave their girls the supplements as babies and they've had multiple surgeries in their mouth. Does it sound like a good idea giving it to a baby?

Posted by Brittany
[display_name id=”1″]

Do NOT give a 6 month old baby fluoride supplements. Here is the recent conclusion made by the Harvard School of Public Health:

"Impact of Fluoride on Neurological Development in Children"

July 25, 2012

For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.

The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012.

The researchers conducted a systematic review of studies, almost all of which are from China where risks from fluoride are well-established. Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance in groundwater, and exposures to the chemical are increased in some parts of China. Virtually no human studies in this field have been conducted in the U.S., said lead author Anna Choi, research scientist in the Department of Environmental Health at HSPH.

Even though many of the studies on children in China differed in many ways or were incomplete, the authors consider the data compilation and joint analysis an important first step in evaluating the potential risk. “For the first time we have been able to do a comprehensive meta-analysis that has the potential for helping us plan better studies. We want to make sure that cognitive development is considered as a possible target for fluoride toxicity,” Choi said.

Choi and senior author Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health at HSPH, and their colleagues collated the epidemiological studies of children exposed to fluoride from drinking water. The China National Knowledge Infrastructure database also was included to locate studies published in Chinese journals. They then analyzed possible associations with IQ measures in more than 8,000 children of school age; all but one study suggested that high fluoride content in water may negatively affect cognitive development.

The average loss in IQ was reported as a standardized weighted mean difference of 0.45, which would be approximately equivalent to seven IQ points for commonly used IQ scores with a standard deviation of 15.* Some studies suggested that even slightly increased fluoride exposure could be toxic to the brain. Thus, children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas. The children studied were up to 14 years of age, but the investigators speculate that any toxic effect on brain development may have happened earlier, and that the brain may not be fully capable of compensating for the toxicity.

“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” Grandjean says. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”

Questions and Answers

Has anyone taken any proven vitamins for memory boost ?

Posted by Delani
[display_name id=”1″]What was that again.. OOOpps.. I think gonna need a memory booster too. Heheh.

Any tips to help boost concentration?I’m currently working on a thesis for final year of uni but am finding it extremely difficult to concentrate…anybody any useful tips?? Thanks for feedback 🙂

Posted by Celtic Goddess
[display_name id=”1″]Hey, buddy …… For memory loss and increasing your concentration and levels of focus try eating more foods rich in Vitamin B1 (thiamine) ie ~ brewer’s yeast, whole grain breads and cereals like brown rice, meat , organic nuts and seeds like almonds, brazil nuts and sunflower seeds, legumes such as peas, beans and lentils and potatoes………. Sooo, ditch the white bread buddy if you eat any.

Organic with the nuts and seeds to avoid the nasty sulfites and other chemicals they use in the commercial varieties to “preserve” them that will upset sensitive bodies.

Cut out lollies, candies, sugary and packaged junky type foods like ice cream, cake and chocolate ….. Or at the very least cut right back on them as they will only rob you of your precious vitamins and nutrients and stress your system more….. Are you vegetarian or lactose intolerant?? It’s really important to supplement with a B complex if you are mate …. Take a multi B complex supplement including all the B’s ie ~ B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 as they work best as a group……… Don’t take any of the B complex of vitamins individually but rather as a whole group unless specifically told to by a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath.

The need for B1 (and the B complex) increases when we are stressed, during illness and surgery. B1 has beneficial effects on the nervous system and mental attitude and will also aid in digestion and keep nervous system, muscles and heart functioning normally………… The B complex of vitamins will help bolster your system so as you can better deal with the everyday little dramas life presents for us.

It is a water soluble complex and as such our bodies can neither produce or store them. Therefore we need to ingest them on a daily basis or suffer the side affects.

Things that will rob you of your precious B complex of vitamins are :- stress, eating too much protein, alcohol, eating too much tinned and frozen food and processed sugar, laxatives and diuretics, antiobiotics, antidepressants, penicillin, prednisone and aspirin, otc cold and flu medicines and painkillers.

Also, try to cut back on drinks such as caffeine, tea, sodas and soft drinks and pop if you drink any as they are all B complex thieves…….. As well as being great at dehydrating you …. Hydrate yourself properly too and drink at least 8 glasses of fresh filtered water daily ……. You need water to think clearly, your lungs need it to breathe, you need it to lubricate your joints, transport nutrients, digest your food …… Every single cellular function in your body relies on water ….. You’d be amazed at how being just a little dehydrated can affect your concentration, mood and energy levels…. Drink up.

Also, an L-glutamine supplement taken 3 times daily with a meal will also bolster a healthy immune and nervous system and assist in maintaining muscle function……. It also helps maintain the health of intestinal flora and thus is a digestive aid… Glutamine is a natural amino acid and a naturally occuring antioxidant and is brilliant for helping you to retain more information and recollecting particular thoughts.

Other nutrients which are said to enhance your memory and make you smarter are ~ Vitamine E, grapeseed extract, lipoic acid, Vitamin B3 (niacin), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B12 (cobalamin),folic acid, choline, gotu kola ………… Obviously none of them will turn you into Albert Einsteen but you’ll surely start focusing more mate ……… Take care of you.

Questions and Answers

When is it time to switch to senior dog food?My dog is goin to be 7 in feb. Hes a lab/pit/boxer mix (to be fancy a labpitoxer, sorry had to crack that one) about 78 lbs, and still full of energy… My question is when exactly should i start introducing the senior food into his meals? I really do hate this idea (pretty much because i dont want to think of him getting older… It saddens me) but at the same time i want to switch his food to an affordable, natural product. I work at a petstore, so i get a lil discount, which helps me a bunch (hes not my only baby, but my oldest). I have the options of Solid Gold, which has caught my interest, Organix, natural balance, natural choice, nutro max, avoderm. Solid gold seems to be in my price range. What are some thoughts, to dog foods and switching to senior formulas along with all natural (hes on large breed pro plan at the moment). Any other foods i should be thinking about at other stores? Suggestions?

Posted by pandoras_snakegirl
[display_name id=”1″]Yes, your dog is getting older (something we all hate to see) but there are things you could be doing to help your dog be healthier as he ages and even add a few years to his life (something we all love to see)!
My opinion is that you should make the switch to an all natural food AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and not wait around till your dog reaches that senior stage of his life. Pro Plan well its just not cutting it, it has ingredients that really shouldn’t be in a quality dog food such as fillers (corn, wheat gluten), mystery products (poultry by-product, animal digest and fish meal) and simply not enough meat content a dog needs in it’s diet. I see a great food that you mention, though: Solid Gold (Barking at the Moon). It is completely all natural , good meat content and completely grain free. A couple of foods you could look for are Innova and Canidae All Life Stages (Original): These are very good foods as well. I think Canidae would definately be in your price range if Solid Gold is.
If you choose to switch your dog over to Senior formula then you can do it at around 8-9 years of age. Im not sure if Solid Gold has a senior formula so you’d probably have to add supplements but Canidae has a Senior formula which I would recommend simply because of it’s added nutrients. There are alot age related problems for dogs such as arthritis, kidney diseases and even brain diseases . Senior forumlas contain higher levels of antioxidants, high quality proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and fibre to help combat against these diseases. I think it would be an excellent idea if you made that switch.
*Remeber that anytime you switch dog foods to incorporate the new in with the old slowly adding more until your dog is completely switched over to the new food.
Gingko biloba is it really works for the brain?? Like good for memorization?Has anyone tried it yet?? Thanks.

Description

Can’t remember like you used to? Maybe Ginkgo Biloba could help. Ginkgo Biloba is scientifically proven to improve blood and oxygen flow to the brain and extremities, making it a valuable botanical to enhance memory function, mental sharpness and other cognitive functions. An ideal supplement for seniors and younger persons with active lifestyles.

Some of ginkgo’s actions result from several of its constituents working together, and other actions relate directly to specific constituents. Ginkgo extract seems to affect cognitive deficiency in two ways; it stimulates populations of nerve cells that are still functional, and it protects nerve cells from pathologic influences. Ginkgo flavonoid constituents, which are mainly rutin, are efficient free-radical scavengers. Rutin is known to improve capillary fragility and permeability. Ginkgo contains ginkgolide constituents that competitively inhibit platelet-activating factor (PAF) binding at the membrane receptor.

This action might be responsible for beneficial effects in asthma, bronchospasm, hypersensitivity reactions, and circulatory diseases. Ginkgolides antagonize PAF-induced decreases in myocardial contractility and coronary blood flow, and prevent cyclosporin-induced nephrotoxicity. Ginkgo contains ginkgolides A and B. These exert an anti-stress and neuroprotective effect by decreasing corticosteroid synthesis. Ginkgo leaf extract increases cerebral blood flow. There is some evidence that ginkgo might improve cerebral metabolism and protect against ischemia. Ginkgo leaf extract decreases blood viscosity, improves microcirculatory blood flow, protects neural and retinal tissue from hypoxic or oxidative injury, stimulates choline uptake and prevents age-related decline in muscarinic receptors in the hippocampus. There is some suggestion that ginkgo leaf extract might exert a monoamine oxidase inhibiting effect. There is also some suggestion that it shows some activity against Pneumocystis carinii, arrests fibrosis in damaged hepatocytes, and inhibits nitric oxide production in inflammation. Ginkgo can improve vascular blood flow in the corpus cavernosum by relaxing vascular smooth muscle, which helps erectile function.

Dosage: At least 40 milligrams of the 24% concentrated extract, three times daily for a minimum of three months.

[display_name id=”1″]You need to start feeding your brain and stop trying to fix everything by putting crap in your body. Your body will follow your brain, it has no other options. So, start getting a GOOD education in physiology and nutrition and stop reading junk info on the internet.Hydroxycut is the worst of the worst supplements. P90X is an awful way to train because no one need a one-size-for-all video when they have a totally unique physique and unique goals. You need a personal trainer and that should be you. The fact that you waited until late to get started just means you’ll have to catch up. One way to get yourself up to speed is to do the following.

1. Watch all of Scooby’s 210+ videos here –> Http://www.youtube.com/user/scooby1961#g… . (Scooby is a little too “old school” and is not up with the latest science so he’s not 100% correct. He promotes some myths such as 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day which is just wrong. He promotes the use of some supplemnts against the NIH warnings and recommends caffeine which without sufficient cautions, etc. However, he’s the best I’ve been able to find…and I looked at every website I’ve seen mentioned in this forum in the past year.)

2. Next, read everything here so you can learn a little anatomy and kinesiology as well as how to perform exercise in good form –> Http://www.exrx.net/

3. Finally, buy this book and study it (you can skip over the heavy science stuff) –> Http://www.bodybyscience.net/home.html/?…

In the mean time, your coaches will help you with training for your defensive line skills.

Don’t take any supplements. For the truth about supplements, read the following.

– You can’t fix a bad diet with exercise.
– You can’t fix a bad workout with diet.
– You can’t fix anything with supplements.

Keep it real, do the hard work, and understand you can’t undo year’s of bad diet and exercise in weeks.

Questions and Answers

What supplements are good for brain health?

I have used drugs such as spice nd alcohol and I'm trying to make my brain more healthy . What are some good vitamins/supplements ? I'm 16.

Posted by babiesmiles
[display_name id=”1″]

As far as supplements, a good multivitamin (like a one a day) will not hurt. B-12 will increase energy too, because getting sober will be hard and draining. I'd go with a previous comment too and try fasting, but if you were a heavy drinker, be careful. Come down slow or you have the potential to shock your body.

I used to suffer from alcohol abuse, what supplements would you suggest for the health of my brain?

I was a light-alcoholic. I know alcohol kills brain cells that will no longer go back. So I'm assuming, unfortunately, I lost some amount of brain cells because of that and I know them they will never come back but everyone loses brain cells at some point. My question is, what supplements would you suggest to, at least, lower the loss of brain cells for the rest of my life?
You are all trolls. I KNOW THAT IM NOT GETTING THEM BACK. What supplements to take in order to prevent further brain cell loss for the rest of my life?

Posted by Sarkis
[display_name id=”1″]

I wouldn't worry so much about supplements for preventing brain cell (neuronal loss).

Our brains are plenty capable of harvesting what we ingest in our diets to provide all the ingredients to keep our brains healthy.

So as far as supplements, I could give you a list of amino acids, nootropics, and vitamins but you wouldn't notice any difference. I'll give you one,.. Fish oil — This has been studied to death and has neuroprotective properties. (You can find this at any pharmacy, walmart, grocery store, etc).

Further — our brains are not static, and our brains are trillions of neurons that have exponential branches of dendrites that are linked via synapses.

You are correct, we all have brain cells die — every day.. All of us, no matter how healthy we are.

Though this is a normal processes of metabolism and biology.

You are not 'brain damaged' from your light alcoholism — unless you notice some real abilities you used to possess that you can no longer do.

Even so,.. Even with some light cognitive impairment — the brain is plastic.. Ie: Neuroplasticity.

This means that your existing neurons (aka: Brain cells) — can and DO form new connections to take the place of any damage, loss of neurons, etc.

This is how we learn. Our brains are not static. We don't develop our brain and it's connections through childhood and hit adult-hood and it then becomes locked or 'static'. This is a very old myth that most still believe in one form or another that neuroscientists have long since disproved.

The fact is everything you learn, ie: A language, an instrument, everyday memories, experiences, how to drive, a sport, etc — Is a process of the brain dynamically changing and these neurons creating dendritic pathways for the 'ability' to perform or remember, etc these tasks.

So with this in mind,.. Just as in stroke victims, or Traumatic brain injury cases you can relearn things lost from "damage" with repetition and practice. It isn't quick, but it happens.

The brain is quite redundant — so cells (neurons) lost don't immediately cause some major malfunction of function. There are generally many fold connections among a huge number of neurons that are responsible for any one function, memory, ability, etc.

Even the notion that we cannot grow 'new' , completely new neurons is highly debated and contested and I suspect with the discovery of active stem cells in our brains that it will soon be debunked that we are 'stuck' with X amount of "brain cells".

Don't worry so much, just focus on your sobriety and you will be fine.

Take care,

Questions and Answers

What is the most effective brain supplement for college students that is not ADHD medicine?

I've heard cerebral success, procera AVH, gingko, fish oil… Whats the best and safest?

Posted by Eleni Kavvadias
[display_name id=”1″]

Well I eat more fish,cold meats, berries and a bit bran. I do not take a big meal but keep snacking through the day. If you have a big carb meal you will feel sleepy as the body has to deal with a lot of food, so as long as the body has enough and the protein if giving the body strength you should whizz through what you are doing. It works for me, also do some power walking 30 minutes is enough. That lets the brain relax and the body have a simple work out burning just enough calories to keep that up with the brain.

What's your supplement cycle?

Right now I'm on Nitrix/No-Xplode and since you can only use these for 12 weeks, what is a good alternative to cycle to? Please post anything from a good cycle with those products or any other products you may be using and (if you can) why you're using those.

[display_name id=”1″]

Anabolic Muscle Gain Supplement Cycle
A cycle is a logical and effective pattern that is followed in order to get the best results of the different supplements that are taken. The average length of a cycle is 6 – 12 weeks in duration. The length of time for an off cycle is at least 4 weeks.

Making these cycles up for yourself doesn't require the knowledge of a brain surgeon only common sence. What is shown on this page is just an example. To give you some kind of idea what eveyone else is doing out there. Once you figure out what works well for yourself, you can design your own cycle that will give you maximum gains is the shortest period of time. The short effective cycles are almost always the best.

This cycle is an advanced cycle and may produce incredible muscle mass gains. This powerful combination of sup[plements may also result in incredible pumps, vascularity and hardness.

Omega 3. But supplements aren't very effective.
Daily exercise, puzzles, and a well balanced diet with plenty of fruits and nuts is a thousand times more effective.
Also, since the brain has high percentage of fat (toxins tend to concentrate in fat tissue) a detox might also help.
