Brain Food

Dementia is major concern for an aging population. There are steps people can take to keep their minds sharp throughout their lifetimes, and, not surprisingly, proper nutrition should be at the top of the list.

In January 2018, a study was published in Neurology that revealed eating leafy greens has a positive impact on cognitive ability. For nearly five years, 960 participants from the age of 58 to 99 years old had their food intake monitored as part of the Memory and Aging Project. None of the people who took part had dementia.

At the end of the study, those who consumed even one daily serving of leafy greens showed a slower decline in cognitive ability than the participants who didn’t. It was determined that particular plant nutrients, such as vitamin K1, folate, lutein, kaempferol and nitrate, found in greens and other foods contributed to this desirable state of mind.

AIM for the Brain and Beyond                                            

The AIM Companies has been promoting the nutritional benefits of greens ever since 1982 with the introduction of BarleyLife, the juice powder of young barley plants. AIM’s founders had immense belief in it’s potential to benefit people’s health and instinctively knew that they were on to something big. The fact that AIM has enthusiastically promoted this green powder for 37 years is the result of having “Nutrition that works.”

Over those years, AIM introduced additional whole-food concentrates, including RediBeets and CoCoa LeafGreens. Along with BarleyLife, these powders are rich in the brain-boosting plant nutrients identified by this recent study.

Having a concentration of plant nutrients in easily assimilated powders is an ideal way to supplement and boost wholesome food intake, not only for brain health but for overall well-being.

In addition to brain-healthy powders, AIM’s targeted nutrition includes GinkgoSense, a natural health product that helps improve memory in an aging population.

“Nutrition that works” for the brain and beyond is something to think about and, most importantly, act upon.

11 AIM Products for Brain Health

Brain

If you’re concerned about the health of your brain, it’s a good indicator that you have a brain. The three best ways to keep your mental capacities at full functionality are by exercising your body, exercising your brain and by maintaining proper nutrition.  At this point, we all know how to exercise: run, swim, cycle, hula-hoop and/or cartwheel. Exercising our brain can take the form of fun crossword puzzles, solving riddles in order to cross bridges in fairy tales or mentally challenging games, but the nutritional needs of your brain are very specific. That’s where The AIM Companies comes in. We have expertly formulated and tasty whole-food juice concentrates and nutritional supplements that can really help keep your mind sharp. Here are eleven of those products.

But if you want to talk about B-vitamins, Peak Endurance is the product that you’re really going to want to talk about. Two servings of Peak Endurance gives you 100% of your daily B-vitamin needs. B-vitamins play important roles in nerve impulse propagation. Studies have also shown that B-vitamins may reduce some risk of Alzheimer’s/dementia and can also reduce brain shrinkage.

4. AIMega

Studies have shown that a reduced intake of Omega-3’s increases the risks of age-related cognitive decline.

5. CellSparc 360

In one study, CoQ10 was shown to reduce brain deterioration in Parkinson’s patients. Generally though, CoQ10 has also been shown to improve vascular health which, in turn, promotes healthy blood flow to the noggin.

6. CranVerry+ 

In clinical tests, resveratrol has been shown to benefit memory and increase blood flow to the brain.

7. ReAssure SP

Your brain is made mostly of fat. Cartenoids like lycopene safeguard fat. I know, this is the only time in your life that you’ve wanted to retain fat.  It’s hard for me to wrap my fat mind around this, too.

Vitamin K has been linked to better verbal episodic memory performance.  It also helps to keep your arteries pliant, a hallmark of healthy blood flow.

A study published in Neuron journal, found that increasing brain magnesium can improve learning and memory. Magnesium is essential for brain health, especially in aging populations.
