Cure Brain Fog & Poor Memory

Do you find yourself forgetting things, misplacing stuff, or just plain feeling fogged in? We joke about our forgetfulness at times…our sunglasses on our heads as we search for them…. but the seriousness of the issue is our mental performance and long term brain health. If forgetfulness and brain fog persists, it can signal the beginning of dementia or Alzheimer’s. We can’t let that go. We can do something about it.

Could You Have Brain Sludge?

Damaged cells become free radicals, and a chain reaction is set in motion. Free-radicals attack proteins in the brain. This turns them into “sludge” called lipofuscin—a form of brown slime that can coat neurons. Ronald M. Lawrence M.D., Ph.D., a specialist in neurology and assistant clinical professor at UCLA School of Medicine says, “that slime decreases the ability of the brain to send vital electrochemical messages to other parts of the brain. As the slime thickens, memory declines and senility and dementia begin.”1 Free-radical damage to the hypothalamus and pituitary glands result in a decline in growth hormone (GH). Low GH can contribute to more of the manifestations of aging including problems with sleep. Poor sleep further contributes to mental decline. Free-radical attack on the adrenal glands results in a decline in the hormone DHEA—a hormone essential to the ability to learn and form memories.

Due to a host of modern-industrial pollutants, processed foods, too many sweets, computers and other sources of low-electromagnetic-field toxicity, and other generators of free radicals, many middle-aged and even younger people are suffering declines in memory, ability to learn, cognition, intelligence, and capacity to think clearly. Peak mental performance is a necessity for many people. Business meetings require that you be in top form. There are reports to go over, facts to memorize, summaries to write. Your job demands an alert, quick mind. So does school, if you are taking any courses. Also social settings and doing simple tasks, even if you are retired, calls for clear thinking. You want to stop any mental decline and get your brain back in top shape.

Your first step? Scavenge free radicals and prevent attacks on brain cells with an abundance of antioxidant nutrients such as you find in fresh vegetable juice and wheatgrass juice. As you feed your body high quality “brain food” every day, you’ll see a difference. You have to also remove substances that contribute to brain decline such as all sugars and artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners are neurotoxins that are worse for the brain that sugar. Avoid all junk food as well, which is very bad for the brain.

Whether you want to improve memory or enhance creativity, concentration, and alertness, and prevent brain aging—dietary boosters from juicing and nutritional supplements can make a tremendous difference.
