There are so many benefits to keeping our brain healthy. A sharp and active mind can reduce your stress levels, help you recall information faster, and make you feel more engaged with life. That’s already a lot, but here are more benefits you enjoy when you have a fit brain:

• You think faster

• You are more apt to try new things

• You more easily find the right words when you need them

• You are able to practice better listening skills

• You become more efficient

• You are more observant

• You react quicker to stimuli

• You can maintain a good mood longer

• You become better at retaining information

• You become more self-confident

With the busy lives we lead, a healthy brain is important.

Vitamins and supplements are just one piece of building a healthier brain, but every step we take can bring big benefits.

Okay, so what are the 7 vitamins and supplements your brain needs to not only maintain health, but also repair damage?

1) Vitamin E protects your brain from certain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

2) Vitamin B is necessary for the creation of all the best brain chemicals such as dopamine, epinephrine, and serotonin.

3) Vitamin B12 protects the brain from nerve damage and keeps your thinking sharp.

4) Folate keeps your brain in tip-top form, improving areas such as memory and even your ability to concentrate.

5) Vitamin B6, like vitamin B, is necessary for the creation of serotonin.

I am an author, speaker, caregiver, and Grammy. The latter is by far the most fun! Having been a primary caregiver 3x, I realized so many lessons were learned too late to benefit my Dad who passed of Parkinson's Disease. I resolved to write a book to make life easier and safer for other caregivers that would get them ideas, inspiration, and lessons learned. It's called "Caregiving: How To Hold On While Letting Go" available on Amazon. I am a Certified Caregiver Consultant and Advocate as well as a Community Educator for the Alzheimer's Assoc. and Founder of The PurpleVine LLC

I want to know more caregiving tips, and resources, plus get FREE gifts!
