It’s now autumn, and children of all ages have returned to their studies. The question often arises, what can be done nutritionally to enhance someone’s learning experience?
Bacopa Complex from the Medi Herb side of Standard Process has been found to enhance one’s IQ. Along with Ginkgo biloba, an herb which increases the circulation to the brain, a child or anyone can more easily pass their tests or enhance their brain’s function. Taking tests is stressful no matter what your age. The adrenal glands are the organs which help us to handle the stressors of life. When your adrenal glands are strong, then you can handle stress better. But when the adrenal glands are weak, then physically you cannot handle a stressful event as well as you could if your adrenal glands were normal in function. We have the capacity to react in as fast as one-tenth of a second, but that’s only when our adrenal glands are functioning optimally. People who freeze when an incident occurs, often have inadequate adrenal gland function. One symptom of weak adrenals, is when you get up from sitting or lying down, and you feel dizzy or light-headed. That’s abnormal at any age. The adrenal glands need Vitamin C and the mineral Copper. That’s why wearing copper bracelets helps people during their stressful times. The body can absorb the copper from the bracelet itself.
As we age, we sometimes lose our sense of smell and/or taste. Both can be rejuvenated by taking foods which have lots of copper in them.
Because the circulation to the brain decreases with age, and the brain itself shrinks with age, anyone over the age of 60 should be taking Ginkgo biloba. To enhance our brain’s function even more, we older people should be taking Choline and Lecithin (Soy Bean Lecithin from Standard Process), because it helps our nerves to communicate with each other more efficiently.
The Most Important Muscle
The heart is the most important muscle in the whole body. If it stops, the whole show stops. So it is vital that we keep the heart strong and working effectively.
Cardiotrophin PMG from Standard Process will keep the heart muscle working well. 80% of all heart problems involve the heart muscle itself, so it makes sense to take something which will keep the heart muscle strong. Remember, the very first sign that you have a heart problem is usually sudden death. It’s easier just to take a few supplements to keep the heart going strong, rather than to find out the hard way that you were unaware you had an underlying heart problem.
Wheat Germ Oil
Another supplement called Wheat Germ Oil has a substance in it called ‘octacosanol’. This helps give you more stamina. Personally, I have tried it and it works well. If you want to do some physical activity which normally tires you out, take 6 capsules a day for about a week, then do what you want to do, and you should be able to last longer than you usually can.
Our bodies are made up of 75 trillion cells. One third of them, about 25 trillion, are red blood cells. Red blood cells are red because they contain iron. Iron is needed in order to get the oxygen out of the lungs and into the red blood cells. Without oxygen our bodies will fail. Most people could use a little more iron in their diet. Ferrofood is a non-constipating supplement. It has a lot more than just iron in it, which is why it won’t affect your bowel movements. This supplement has even been found to alleviate depression in some people.
