This week we have been exploring different facets of brain health including the brain gauge test and powerful modalities to restore or maintain brain health. See our video below with practitioners Dr. Bita and Dr. Bales and they discuss critical factors related to brain health.
This article looks at an additional piece of brain health: supplements. At Center for New Medicine, we are dedicated to providing the most comprehensive information and cutting edge, non-toxic treatments/supplements. Below is a list of 5 impactful supplements for brain health our patients regularly use.
Berberine helps prevent dangerous oxidation of brain tissue which, in turn, helps restore or maintain memory and a strong brain. Along with this, berberine is able to target and destroy harmful enzymes that deteriorate the brain and lead to poor memory. Lastly, it helps increase blood flow to the brain to help reduce inflammation, flush out toxins, and deliver fresh oxygen to the brain.

The medium-chain triglycerides in coconut oil are like a superfood for the brain. The brain is made up of about 60% fat (by weight) and as such, needs high-quality fats in order to function optimally. The key to coconut oil is its medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Most vegetable oils are long-chain triglycerides which are harder to break down and are more easily stored as fat. The smaller MCT’s are more readily broken down and absorbed for brain fuel (particularly when glucose is in short supply).
Coconut oil is also an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant. Brain inflammation is a contributing factor to anxiety and depression. MCT coconut oil is a clear, flavorless oil that can easily be added to smoothies, soups, drizzled over salads.

B vitamins play a role in the creation of neurotransmitters. A depletion in these neurotransmitters can lead to various cognitive concerns like fatigue, depression, brain fog, and anxiety. Vitamin B12 plays a role in the production of myelin, a protective coating around the axons of our brain. Damage to myelin in our brain or reduced production slows the speed of communication from neuron to neuron and can lead to symptoms like dizziness, numbness, and loss of vision in extreme cases.

Omegas and specifically Omega 3 Fatty Acids (EPA, DHA, ALA), are important substances that help regulate the brain’s structure and ability to perform. They help regulate functions like executive function, aspects of memory, reaction time, age-dependent brain loss, cognitive impairment, and more.
