Natural Awakenings Tucson

Brain Support in Crazy Times

We have all suffered some unbelievable changes in our lives lately. It has been stressful, apprehensive and downright scary. Emotionally and physically, it takes a toll on our brains. What do we do? What can we do?
        To understand, let’s learn some basics. The brain needs two things: activation and fuel. Activation comes from many things, such as exercise, brain games, art, music, sports, yoga and more. Sight, sounds, movement, problem solving, laughter and more create brain cell metabolic activity.
    Fuel is our food and nutrition. A low inflammatory diet, adequate protein and essential fatty acids are minimum brain requirements. Nutritionally, we can find increased production of nitric oxide from consumption of beets, broccoli seeds and alpha lipoic acid.
      So in crazy times, it’s time to get crazy. We must activate our brain and feed it. Most of all, be thankful and patient.
