Recent studies have shown that beta hydroxy beauty rate, a principal Keytone, is not just a fuel, but a super fuel more efficiently producing ATP energy than glucose.

Rezza vera trawl is an effective compound for optimizing brain function. It increases blood flow in the brain when performing mental tasks and the heart of the tasks the greater the effect of raspberry trawl.


Coconut oil is a supra fuel for the brain and reduces inflammation.

It is heat stable so you can cook with it at high temperatures.

Alpha lipoic acid crosses the blood brain barrier and ask as a powerful antioxidant in the brain in both watery and fatty tissues.

Vitamin D, which is actually a fat Seiyu bowl steroid hormone, his ass out viable. Reports of Shona 25 percent risk reduction in cognitive decline in individuals with higher levels of vitamin D. Women with high intakes of vitamin D have a reduction in developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Low levels‘s of vitamin DAlso contribute to depression and chronic fatigue. Vitamin D is needed by the adrenal glands to help regulate and


Aerobic exercise is shown to increase the size of the hippocampus.

Exercise has proven to induce growth of new neurons in the brain and build novel networks in the brain. It’s one thing to give birth to brain cells, but another to organize the sales into a network that functions in harmony. We don’t get smarter by making your brain cells, we have to interconnect the cells into the existing neural network otherwise they will room aimlessly and eventually die. One way to do that is to learn something new.


Exercise makes neurons nipple and able to multitask. BNF plays a role by strengthening cells and axons, 40 find the connection between neurons and sparking neurogenesis. Neurogenesis increases the brains ability to learn new things, which in turn strengthens those new brain cells and further fortifies the neural network.

Higher levels of BD NFL are associated with a decrease in appetite


Those individuals in the lowest temperature sent of daily physical activity had a 230 percent increase in developing Alzheimer’s disease. Those who exercised daily had a 10 percent decrease in Alzheimer’s onset

Leptin influences all hormones and controls all the functions of the hypothalamus in the brain. The hypothalamus is where your inner dinosaur lives – – and is responsible for your bodies rhythmic activities in avast for array of physiological functions from hunger to sex.


Both leptin and insulin are pro-inflammatory molecules. Leptin is an inflammatory side of Keane and our exacerbated by carbohydrates. The more refined and prices the carbohydrate, the more out of whack healthy levels of leptin and insulin become.

Continuous carbohydrate abuse on the body’s insulin pumping in blood sugar balancing eventually leads to insulin resistance. That also occurs with leptin.

When the body is overloaded and overwhelmed by substances that cause continuous surges in leptin, the receptors for leptin start to turn off and you become leptin resistance.

This leaves the body loanable to illness and further dysfunction.

I love you to try gristle glyceride levels are also a hallmark of too many carbs in the diet.


Not a single drop or supplement on the planet can balance leptin levels, but better sleep as well as dietary choices can do the trick.

Better diet includes one shift your body away from relying on carbs for fuel and had brain boosting supplements to your daily regimen


Restful sleep
