Take one capsule after breakfast and one
capsule after dinner.
You can optimize your
long-term memory and concentration by:
1) Taking ClariMind
- ClariMind releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the
molecular level to promote cognitive function.
2) Exercising Regulary - A
fit body supports a healthy mind, and a healthy
mind is a necessity for superior recall and focus. Beside improving
circulation and raising oxygen levels, exercise causes your brain to
release dopamine which gives you a sense of well-being and promotes
restorative sleep. This counters the stress which lowers dopamine
levels in the body leading to an unhealthy outlook and poor sleep.
3) Breathing Mindfully - Slow, regular, and full-intake breathing
(which fills the stomach) optimizes oxygen levels in your body,
relieves stress, and boosts concentration levels. This type of
breathing is practiced by meditation practitioners. Most people
shallow chest breathing, which is an improper and detrimental breathing
technique. In Western society, big chests and small waists are
glorified, leading to this unhealthy breathing practice. By fully
utilizing the diaphragm and expanding the belly on inhales and
contracting on exhales, the body will enjoy increased benefits.
4) Eating Properly - A balanced diet with sufficient essential fatty
acids which help build brain cells, amino acids which are required for
neurotransmitter production, and carbohydrates which provide glucose
("the brain's fuel") is critical for optimal brain function. Foods rich
in essential fatty acids include dry roasted nuts, pumpkin seeds,
salmon, sardines, trout, tuna, avocados, and fresh coconut. Sources of
amino acids include eggs, milk products, and green leafy vegetables.
Healthy sources of carbohydrates include fruits and vegetables, brown
rice, wholegrain bread, porridge oats, and wholewheat pasta.
5) Increasing Iron Intake - Iron helps you gain and maintain energy and
alertness. Daily Iron dosage should be 15 to 20 mg. Doses larger than
this may cause stomach upset and constipation. Good sources of Iron
include almonds, hazel nuts, soya beans, oat and wheat bran, and boiled
6) Increasing Vitamin A Intake
Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that helps keep free radicals away
from the brain and helps protect the body from infection. A daily
dosage of 800 mcg is recommended. Foods rich in Vitamin A include
carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, kale, cantaloupe, apricots, peaches,
papayas, mangos, milk, eggs, and
7) Increasing Vitamin B12 Intake
Vitamin B12 helps to make red blood cells and is important for nerve
cell function. It helps to produce methionine which in turn is needed
to make S-adrenosyl-methionine (SAMe). SAMe is involved in the
manufacture of neurotransmitters and in brain metabolism. A daily
dosage of 100 to 250 mcg is recommended. Good sources of Vitamin B12
red meat, poultry, milk, cheese, and eggs.
8) Increasing Vitamin B6 Intake - Vitamin B6 is supports normal brain
and nerve function and also helps the body metabolize proteins and make
red blood cells. A daily
dosage of 25 to 50 mg is recommended. Vitamin B6 is found in potatoes,
bananas, beans, seeds, nuts, red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and spinach.
9) Increasing Thiamin Intake - Thiamin (Vitamin B1) helps the body
metabolize carbohydrates and is necessary for proper heart, muscle, and
nervous system function. A
daily dosage of 20 to 30 mg is recommended. Good sources of
include pasta, meat and fish, dried beans, soy beans, peas, and whole
10) Increasing Niacin Intake - Niacin (Vitamin B3) supports nerve
function, helps convert food into energy, and helps maintain healthy
skin. A daily dosage of 30
to 75 mg is recommended. Niacin is found in red meat, poultry, fish,
11) Increasing Vitamin C Intake
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) plays an important role in the synthesis of
the neurotransmitter norepinephrine and stabilization of free radicals
in the brain. It should be
consumed in the form of calcium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium
ascorbates which are optimal for countering oxidative stress.
daily dosage of Vitamin C is 1000 to 2000 mg. Foods high in Vitamin C
include oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli,
12) Increasing Vitamin E Intake
Vitamin E is the primary fat-soluble antioxidant in the body which
makes it a crucial brain protector since the brain is composed mostly
of fat. One molecule of Vitamin E can protect 200 fatty acid molecules
from free radical damage thereby helping brain cells remain
functionally healthy for a longer life. Vitamin E also strengthens
cerebral capillaries and red blood cells thus helping to increase
oxygen availability in the blood. And it dissolves blood clots to
prevent stroke. Recommended daily dosage of Vitamin E is 450 IU. Good
sources of Vitamin E include seeds, nuts, soybeans, brown rice, oats,
fresh wheat germ, and eggs.
13) Increasing Selenium Intake
Selenium is an essential trace mineral which is a necessary component
of several important antioxidant enzymes (like Glutathione) your body
manufactures to combat free radicals. It is also one of the most
powerful detoxifiers of heavy metals that damage the brain and other
organs. Selenium binds to mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium, which
all disrupt brain chemistry by displacing important minerals like iron,
zinc, and copper. It is able to "chelate" these metals – a word derived
from Greek word for "claw." In a sense, Selenium grabs hold of these
molecules and removes them from brain cells. Recommended daily dosage is 50 to 200µg.
Selenium-rich foods include
wheat germ, tuna, herring and other
seafood and shellfish, beef liver and kidney, eggs, sunflower and
sesame seeds, cashews, Brazil nuts, mushrooms, garlic, onions, and
14) Increasing Zinc Intake -
Zinc is one of the elements
builds brain fibers in the brain's center for regulating memory and
emotion (the Hippocampus). If you don't have enough zinc in your body,
these fibers will not be able to function as well and will decrease
your cognitive function, or ability to remember and think. Recommended
daily dosage is 15 mg. Good sources of Zinc include beans, nuts,
shelled pumpkin seed, red meat, poultry, oysters, crab, whole grains,
fortified cereals, and dairy products.
15) Increasing Omega-3 Intake
Omega-3 Fatty Acid known as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a brain food
because DHA is found in high concentration in the gray matter of the
brain. In order for neurons to communicate properly, the membrane (or
wall) around neurons need to be flexible enough to allow vital
molecules to pass through. Aging and diets high in cholesterol and
saturated fats can cause membranes to stiffen and be less pliable. This
prevents molecules from passing and results in mood imbalances,
learning difficulties, and other decreases in brain function. Omega-3
restores the flexible and pliable nature of your neuron membranes to
improve cell communication and brain function. Recommended daily dosage
is 600 to 1,000 mg. Excellent sources of Omega-3 include salmon, flax
seeds, and walnuts.
16) Taking Time Off - Extended periods of concentration drain you of
energy just as extended periods of exercise exhaust your body. Occasionally distract yourself from what
doing to give yourself time to recover.
17) Seeking Hypnotherapy - Hypnotherapy is effective for addressing
past trauma that might be affecting your present state of mind. By
accessing the sub-conscious in the hypnotic
state, the hypnotherapist will take you back to relive the experience.
The act of reliving the experience desensitizes
you and helps release feelings of fear, pain, or remorse that are
holding you back from optimal mental and physical health.
