Brain-Boosting Good Green Stuff

Juggling the endless tasks we need to get through each day can often mean that our memory for remembering details is not always great. How often do you forget passwords, phone numbers, even just why on earth you walked into the room? Mental function is impaired when we’re stressed and tired; and declines as a natural part of the aging process that (scarily) begins around the age of forty.

The great news is that our brains are able to be trained. With the right nutrition and environment they can build new brain cells and slow cognitive decline. For centuries, herbs have also been used to boost memory and cognition and now there is strong research to support their use in improving attention, cognitive processing and memory by activating neurotransmitters and protecting damage to neurons that cause mental decline.

The following herbs you can find in NuZest’s Good Green Stuff – scientifically supported, memory-boosting herbs – just one of the plethora of benefits to taking your Good Green Stuff every day!

Panax Ginseng Extract – aids in concentration and enhanced mental function by activating neurotransmitters

Rhodiola Rosea – recognised as one of the best memory-boosting herbs, it enhances physical and mental performance and helps to retain a higher level of mental function by stimulating the central nervous system

Gotu Kola – thought to be able to improve blood flow to the brain, thereby enhancing memory and brain function

Sunflower lecithin – plays a role in nerve function so may be beneficial for neurological performance

Orgranic Chlorella – may help to prevent the progression of mental decline

Rosemary Leaf extract – traditionally used for improved memory, it also acts as an antioxidant, neutralising free radicals.

 

Good Green Stuff can be used as simply as adding two teaspoons to a glass of water, but if you want to get creative, visit our recipes section for ideas and inspiration.
