Natural Brain Function Support
What Improves Brain Function?
Brain function, whether mood, neurological function or cognitive dysfunction, is a topic of great concern in this era of human life.
Whole World Botanicals offers products based on two botanicals, actually foods, called Maca root (Lepidium meyennii) and Camu-Camu (Myciaria dubia) that may have positive nutritional effects on the brain.
Causes of Moodiness
Many disturbances in mood are linked to the high stress levels that people live with. There is scientific evidence that high levels of stress change both neurotransmitter hormone balance and adrenal gland functioning. Maca, through its role in helping the body to make more IGF-1, has a positive effect on neurotransmitter hormones.
There is also evidence that it has a positive effect on adrenal gland function. Camu-Camu, through its high quantity and quality of food sourced Vitamin C, helps neutralize free radicals caused by stress and linked to low mood. On the TOSC (Total Oxidant Scavenging Capacity) test, Camu-Camu showed a far greater capacity to destroy free radicals than did apples and oranges, and even much higher than blueberries and acai fruit.
Neurological disorders, such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) are commonplace today. Both Maca and Camu-Camu can help alleviate the symptoms of this disorder, even if it cannot treat or cure this disorder.
Help for Menopausal Depression
Women in Menopause often experience both a temporary depression (caused by menopausal hormone imbalance) and brain fog. Maca root is known from studies to relieve menopausal depression and improve cognitive function.
Why Alzheimer’s Disease Occurs
In the latter part of life, Alzheimer’s Disease has become commonplace. It is now the sixth highest cause of death in the U.S. The most recent studies link this disease to blood markers for high levels of inflammation. Although no causative link has been established and there is no known cure for this disease at this point in time, it is always a good idea to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, known to help neutralize free radicals in the body, as well as take supplements which do the same, since a high level of free radicals are linked to high levels of inflammation in the body.
Consuming an adequate daily level of fruits and vegetables (diet), certain therapeutic botanicals (dietary supplements) and a well-functioning immune system are all geared to destroying an excessively high level of free radicals in your body and thereby help your body to maintain a healthy inflammation response.
