The ingredients Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin are powerful plant based nutrients called carotenoids. They can be found in leafy greens like spinach, kale and broccoli.
They act as potent antioxidants to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress on the brain. These powerful compounds also support the brain by reducing inflammation.
FUN FACT: According to USDA data, 1 Bowl of Spinach in 1953 has the same nutritional value as over 43 Bowls of Spinach today. That's an 84% loss of nutrition! What this means is that even with a healthy diet we don't receive these key nutrients in the quantities our brains' need.
Omega-3s are known as essential fats, meaning our bodies can't produce them and we must get them through our diet. Foods high in omega-3 include cold water fish like salmon.
Omega-3s are vital nutrients for maintaining healthy brain function and have been linked to healthy aging throughout life, including pregnancy and early life. They are also used to fight inflammation in the brain.
BRAIN TIP: Our omega-3s contain 500mg DHA and 150mg EPA. These are essential fatty acids required for rebuilding new cells. In fact, they are often referred to as the building blocks for healthy cell membranes. These cell membranes provide critical support for the brain connections that support healthy memory, cognition, and emotional well-being.
