10 Natural Supplements That Promote Healthy Brain Function

John Gray

I feel that we are at a crisis in the world. More and more people are experiencing loss of memory, dementia, Alzheimer's disease and other brain-related conditions.

There are many factors that can contribute to dementia and Alzheimer's. It can be due to environmental factors, such as lead paint in your house or chemicals in the air. It can be due to certain medications, especially Lipitor.

It can also be due to excess sugar in the brain, also known as diabetes of the brain. I discuss that further in this video, as well as, recommend various nutritional supplements to try for better brain function.

There is not a one solution fits all, but you will learn what supplements work and why they do. You will learn what food to eat and what to avoid. You will gain the insight you and your children need to achieve optimal brain function and focus. I do not know what is right for you, but I can share the missing insight for you to discover what will work for you.

When taking supplements, it is important to see them not as drugs with dangerous side effects but as the missing ingredients from the food we eat. Just as you might add a long list of spices to make a meal more tasty and healthy, you can now add a list of supplements to make it more nutritious.

Here are ten supplements that promote healthy brain function:

Vitamin C
To get right to the point, vitamin C is the best supplement you can take for the brain. But for vitamin C to do its magic, our liver needs to make glutathione. To make glutathione, we need a healthy, drug-free liver and we have to eat foods high in the amino acid cysteine.

Glutathione activates vitamin C and assists the body in detoxifying the toxic chemicals and heavy metals that interfere with body and brain function. Special mineral supplementation to activate optimal brain function is also just as important.

Most people are simply not aware of the high content of sugar in their diet. One of the many problems with a diet rich in sugar is that sugar depletes vitamin C. That is why nature provides extra vitamin C in sugar rich fruit.

Our diet today is too high in added sugars and simple carbohydrates like white rice, bread, chips, cookies and cake made from processed flour. These foods spike our blood sugar levels too high, which deplete the body of vitamin C and result in a lifetime of gradual injury to our brains.

Super Foods Shake
My Super Foods Shakes are made with undenatured whey protein. Undenatured whey protein isn't processed with high temperatures that kill enzymes like regular protein powders. So undenatured whey protein contains all the amino acids in the right proportions needed to make feel-good brain chemicals.

Super Minerals
While researching the work of Dr. Hans Nieper, I learned about special mineral supplements from Germany that were bonded to orotic acid, a substance high in mother’s milk and whey protein.

Unlike common mineral supplements bonded to carbonate, citrate, phosphate, ascorbate, chloride, etc., minerals bonded to orotic acid are freely transported across the blood-brain barrier. These mineral orotates help brain function immediately. They are super minerals for super brain function.

Vitamin B
All the B Vitamins are for the brain. Most B Vitamins are not absorbed into the body ad you end up peeing them out right away. So it is important to find B Vitamins that are time-released throughout the day.

Grape Seed Extract
Grape Seed extract helps reduce inflammation in the body and , most importantly, the brain. Grape Seed Extract is also one of the few antioxidants capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is currently being recommended as helpful for almost everything. This is because it is necessary to absorb calcium, which is necessary for every brain function. Without Vitamin D the brain cannot utilize brain hormones to increase healthy focus.

Super Cleanse
Regular cleansing and fasting can greatly improve your brain function. When you aren't eating and forcing your body to digest food for energy, it allows the body the space to "clean house" and rid itself of toxins. The Super Cleanse drink is ideal for this. Even if you only cleanse for 3-5 days, this drink is a great way to do it.

The brain is made out of Omega-3. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are essential for brain health. Omega-3 improves learning and memory, helps balance mood swings and protect against depression and cognitive declines.

Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals that are mined in certain parts of the world. Zeolites are one of the few negatively-charged minerals found in nature and they have a very unique structure. Zeolites have large, vacant spaces that allow large, positively charged ions to be attracted to it, then trapped and eliminated from the body - like heavy metals, mercury, lead and cadmium.

Phosphatidylserine (PS)
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a natural nutrient found in the brain. Our brain cells use PS to generate and transmit the electrical signals that make the brain perform. PS actually helps the nerve cells generate the energy they need to maintain the brain s electrical circuits. A good PS supplement is helpful for learning and mood and for coping with the challenges of daily life.

    Hi John, This is such a serious topic, especially given the level of challenges around maintaining a healthy brain - memory, function, focus, motivation etc. Thank you for sharing your amazing knowledge and love the video!

    Why does Zeolite come in two forms, liquid and powder? What are the differences between the two? Also, for what length of time should one take Zeolite and in what quantity per day? Thank you so much.

    Dr. John, I have an allergy to lilies and have been advised not to take a chance on drinking the aloe vera juice, because it is in the lily family. Will the lemon water work without the aloe vera?
