Nourish Your Mind: By Dr. Plant.

While in graduate school I became fascinated with the idea of supplementing the mind both for cognitive performance and preservation.

Though there are few long term studies done of specific herbs and supplements with respect to long term cognitive performance, there is overwhelming evidence on the importance of a healthy diet and exercise in contributing to a person’s mental capability and health.

For example, the picture shows an individuals brain activity walking vs. sedentary. As you can see, exercise not only engages our muscles, but also our mind. Exercise builds strong muscles and a strong mind.


Additionally, people who eat a diet rich in essential fatty acids, little to no red meat, and a plethora of antioxidants appear to have better long term cognitive health. Look for fruits and vegetables enriched in essential fatty acids and antioxidants such as Moringa Oleifera and Avocados.

Furthermore, studies have shown individuals who supplement with essential oils perform better in memory. A study was done that showed diffusing peppermint essential oils helps individuals perform on tests vs. those not exposed to peppermint essential oil.

So the solution is: Exercise, Eat Right and Supplement Naturally.
