Optimizing brain health is not something that you only have to be concerned about in your later years. With daily responsibilities such as parenting, multitasking at work, every day stressors and lack of sleep etc. it’s easy for your brain to not to function as well as you’d like it to. When working with clients, I find that they have a lot of improvement and experiencing better brain health by using the following nutrients:
1. N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)
NAC is a precursor to glutathione—a tripeptide active in detoxification and antioxidant systems. Research suggests that NAC hinders the formation of free radicals that can contribute to oxidative stress in the brain.
2. Phosphatidylserine (PS)
PS is a phospholipid that is highly concentrated in the brain and plays a key role in neuronal energy production and communication. The body must synthesize the PS it needs for better brain health because very little is found in food. Supplementation can help maintain normal brain levels of PS and thereby support brain functions that are dependent on this vital phospholipid.
3. Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR)
ALCAR supports nerve health. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it stabilizes cell membranes, provides antioxidant support, and helps maintain brain cell health. In addition, ALCAR supports neuronal energy production, facilitates transport of fuel and waste products into and out of mitochondria, and supports production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter essential to the processes of learning and concentration.
4. Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Alppha-Lipoic Acid has fat- and water-soluble properties and therefore imparts intracellular and extracellular protection against oxidative stress. With its low molecular weight, alpha-lipoic acid is easily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. It then enters circulation, crosses the blood-brain barrier, and reaches the brain where it can support antioxidant activity and regenerate glutathione, vitamin E, and vitamin C.
5. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 plays a pivotal role in energy generation because it transports electrons in the mitochondrial electron transport chain. CoQ10 also donates electrons, helping to protect the brain from oxidative stress and further supporting neuronal cell health.
Better Brain Health
Brain is a nutritional shake that contains a variety of nutrients and co-factors that support mitochondrial energy production, antioxidant systems, neurotransmitter production, and cell membrane integrity.

Brain features pure d-mixed-tocotrienols complex derived from red palm oil—a scientifically validated source. It provides all four tocotrienol isomers (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta) in natural ratios. Tocotrienols offer extraordinary protective benefits to brain cells (e.g., white matter) and neurons, and higher serum levels of tocotrienols are associated with cognitive health. This brain health formula also features VegaPro™, a proprietary pea/rice protein blend.
