Supplements for the Brain

By Dr. Keerthy Sunder

What Supplements are Good for the Brain?

They say that nothing lasts forever.

As we use our brains and bodies over the years, we need to develop an awareness for how to take care of them.

If something goes wrong with the way you think, process information, or perform everyday tasks, your system will naturally signal you that you need to take care of the problem.

The best way to start making up for declines in metabolism and lost vitamin and mineral reserves is start adding supplements for the brain and memory as part of your daily diet.

In this article, we’ll take a look at specific ingredients found in brain supplements that are good for you. We’ll also explain how they work. If you have any questions after reading the article, feel free to use comment section at the end.

Brain Nutrition Supplements: How Do They Work?

Dietary supplements exist to provide nutrients to the body when eating regular foods does not meet your daily requirements. This can happen for three main reasons.

1. Your body cannot absorb enough nutrients, the result of normal aging.

2. The foods you eat do not contain the nutrients your brain needs. If you have a high fat, high processed diet, or high sugar diet…dietary deficits can exist.

3. The quality of foods is affected by pollutants, processes, or industrial agriculture…and the food itself does not contain the nutrients needed.
While there is no single answer to describe how brain enhancing supplement work (each combo formula interacts with different systems in the brain), we can explain it like this: supplements generally have positive effects by increasing the availability of various:

  • Enzymes
  • Hormones
  • Neurotransmitters

... to the brain. Improved brain plasticity is a proof that it is possible to establish new synapses and repair broken neurotransmitter connections.
The human system is a complicated wire of millions of networks. The links which connect each organ of the body work the same way as an orchestra playing a symphony. When something is lacking, the brain immediately sends signals through the nervous system to the entire body. Imbalance indicates that you are not feeding your brain and body with the essential nutrients they need to work harmoniously.

How do you know you need a supplement for the brain?

You can benefit from a supplement if you notice the following:

  • The inability to concentrate.
  • The inability to multitask.
  • Loss of long or short-term memory.
  • Decreases in the ability to retain, recall, or understand information.

What Brain Supplements are FDA Approved?

Brain supplements are only loosely regulated by the FDA. The three (3) main purposes of FDA regulation for brain nutrition supplements are:

1) Health claims
2) Quality
3) Safety

The FDA publishes health alerts when dietary supplements are later found to have possible damaging effects user's health. Still, the market is full of various brain food supplements that make extraordinary claims. The current market exposes people to the risk of purchasing a product with inferior or potentially harmful ingredients.

According to the FDA, supplements are products which intend to increase the nutritional levels in diet. Manufacturers are allowed to use the following ingredients in their supplements:

  • amino acids 
  • extracts
  • herbs 
  • minerals 
  • plant-based substances
  • vitamins 

It is not mandatory for manufacturers to submit their products to the FDA for approval before bringing them the market. But each manufacturer must ensure not to make false claims about the product they are selling. Any kind of misleading is considered a violation of the law.

Best Supplements for the Brain

Dozens of nutrition and medical studies concluded that taking the right vitamins can improve brain work and protect it from cognitive decline in the future. The following vitamins are vital for maintaining strong mental capacity. And, in the U.S., deficiency levels of two of these vitamins are currently at epidemic proportion! They may be just the ones you need.

1. Calcium.

Calcium is essential to electrical signals sent via the nervous system. It is actually calcium that transports brain signals from the outside to the inside of the cell with the help of important proteins. Because calcium ions are mainly present inside the cell, even a small change in calcium levels can create a major complication in the system. Besides being essential to the life of the cells, calcium also moderates the aging process.

2. Iron.

Iron deficiency causes many cognitive impairments. People diagnosed with low levels of iron have problems with language and motor development. According to the latest finding from the National Academy of Sciences, variations in iron levels are directly linked with brain structure integrity.

Moreover, there is a connection between iron metabolism and the integrity of white matter called “myelin”. It turns out that iron is vital for the existence of white matter. In fact, recent studies have demonstrated that people who are iron deficient score poorly in mathematics and language tests.

3. Phosphorus.

Phosphorus is an essential mineral for the health and wellness of brain cells. When phosphorous is present at adequate levels in the system, brain functions are strong. On the other hand, phosphorus deficiency increases the risk of cognitive malfunction, which can lead to Alzheimer’s and dementia.

4. Magnesium.

Over 300 enzymes require magnesium to perform biological reactions. Magnesium supports cognitive health by maximizing the various functions of the brain. Magnesium is known to strengthen the function of synapses in the hippocampus thus improving long-term potentiation.The effectiveness of the prefrontal cortex is also largely dependent on magnesium. Magnesium also strengthens the synaptic nerve endings responsible for transmitting responses.
Brain fog is the first and most common sign of magnesium deficiency. Those who experience age-related memory loss should definitely consider magnesium supplementation. Studies show that low levels of brain magnesium directly correlate to poor memory function.

5. Sodium.

The brain is very sensitive to change in sodium levels. Sodium deficiency is often manifests as confusion and lethargy. It aids in keeping the mind sharp, and it is an important element for the development of the brain since it works to improve its function.
