Our brain is one of our most important organs, yet it is so often neglected. When you realize the importance of our brain’s function when it comes to the rest of our body working properly, you’ll want to make sure that your brain is as healthy as possible.
Here are four simple things that you can start doing right now to show your brain some much needed love!
With the immense advancement in portable devices like our cell phones and tablets we have an infinite amount of information at our fingertips. This is an amazing thing, but it also comes at a price to our health.
Our brain is like a muscle and if we don’t use it, we lose it. We are relying and have become more and more dependent on using our digital devices instead of the greatest intelligence machine that we have been blessed with – our brain.
I personally do not need a cup of coffee to get my day started, but on occasion I do enjoy a good cup of joe (maybe 3-4 times per week). However, I do not make a pit stop at my local Starbucks or DD (some of those coffees contain more sugar than a can of soda), instead I make mine in the following way for a nice boost of health benefits…
Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee – I personally use the one with Lion’s Mane and Chaga to add a nice boost to my brain for increased focus and productivity. No, this coffee does not taste like mushrooms, but you sure do get the benefits!
Grass Fed Collagen Peptides – if you’re a vegetarian, you might not want to add this; but if not, this is great for your skin and hair health. I personally use the Thrive Market brand. It’s tasteless so don’t worry about it adding any unwanted flavor to your coffee.
Grass Fed Butter – real butter is healthier than all butter substitutes. Healthy fat that is excellent for your gut and brain health. Blending it will create a nice a delicious froth without using any creamer or milk (which you shouldn’t be drinking anyway).
Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil – this is designed to amplify ketosis and fuel our brain and body. It is flavorless and does not contain Lauric Acid.
Coffee is an excellent source of polyphenols, helps to improve cognition, and has been associated with reducing risk of dying from heart disease, diabetes, & lung disease. Just make sure to use good quality coffee (to eliminate risk of mold often found in industrial coffee beans) and leave out all the sugary crap and creamers!
