Some of the important nutrients which are able to assist in boosting your ability to memorise and concentrate are:-
Essential Fatty Acids
Ginko biloba and some other herbs
However, are you aware the single MOST important element crucial for the development and maintenance of healthy brain function is LECITHIN?
The active ingredient in lecithin is phospatididylcholine. It is a nutritional building block for the synthesis of the brain’s primary memory neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.
Neurotransmitters function as brain messengers that enable the brain cells to “communicate” with each other. When neurotransmitter levels decline, the brain cells are unable to “communicate” efficiently with each other. This means that previously stored information (“memory”), cannot be recalled easily. Your “recall”ability weakens, causing fuzzy memory and mental tiredness in high-stress situations.
The result is a person is likely to suffer from poor concentration and diminished ability to retain and recall information.
Therefore lecithin is essential for mental development and maintenance.
Scientists used to believe that adult brains did not regenerate or add new neurons (the communication pathways in your brain).
The good news is the latest research has shown that the opposite is true. Even after maturity, brain cells do regenerate if they are given the essential building blocks!
This a very good piece of news. It means our mental capacity is not restricted , and it is possible to grow new brain cells and improve our mental alertness even when we grow older.
Remember… unlike other “mind herbs”, lecithin is the actual component that your brain and nerves are made from. Without sufficient lecithin, no matter what herbs you take to improve declining mental capacity or memory, the effort may be futile.
You may not have heard about this nutrient. You may not even know how to pronounce it – “less-a-thin”.
But it is a big deal, when you find out how it can improve your life in this review.
It is a phospholipid – found in every cell in our body. It is most abundant in our vital organs, brain, liver, heart, kidneys and nerves. In fact 30% of the brain’s dry composition is lecithin. It’s also an important component of all cell membranes. It keeps the cells permeable, allowing vital health-giving nutrients and oxygen are able to enter the cells, and disease causing toxins are able to exit.
In short, it is vital to our bodily functions and considered the most important element for our brain.
If you or a loved ones suffers from:-
missed appointments and deadlines
poor recall of names, faces, facts, dates and numbers
constantly repeating yourself
problems finding the right words – feeling “lost for words”
If any of these symptoms are familiar to you, then you may be nutritionally deficient in Lecithin.
How do you overcome a deficiency? Simple, take Lecithin in granular form. Remember that lecithin is a natural food, not a drug. It is non-toxic and virtually free of side-effects.
The normal recommended dosage for an adult, just 7.5g (1 heaped teaspoonful) is sufficient to maintain your brain’s memory cells in impressive wording order. The dosage can be safely increased (doubled or tripled) in cases of memory impairment.
Children older than 6 can take lecithin at half the normal adult dosage. Just this small amount per day will help ensure your child gets enough lecithin for optimal mental and physical development.
It can be taken on it’s own, or added to drinks or food, like sprinkled over cereals, soups or salads, blended with fruit or vegetable juice, added to graves sauces or dressings, used in baking such as bread, cakes, cookies.
Our Nn Lecithin is derived from natural soybeans and is completely free from preservatives, coloring or artificial flavoring. Not all Lecithin is created equal. The potency and efficacy of lecithin is determined by it’s phosphatides content. A high quality product would have at least 97% phosphatides and be derived from non-genetically modified soybeans. Anything less is a bad choice.
Did you know that studies show that antioxidants can prevent aging on a cellular level? This is where the aging process begins. They prevent one of the tell-tale signs of cellular aging – the accumulation of an “age” pigment called lipofuscin and AGE (advanced glycation end-products).
Accumulation of lipofuscin and AGE is the main cause of the signs of premature aging, such as wrinkles or brown spots on the skin, and can cause even more destruction inside your body.
Antioxidants can slow down their formation and dramatically keep your cells youthful for a longer period of time.
What are antioxidants? Basically they are a group of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phyto-nutrients, and phyto-chemicals that help protect your body from free radical damage. Free radicals are highly unstable molecules which are constantly being formed in our bodies as a result of oxidization (simply breathing oxygen causes this), toxins (like pollution, pesticides or house-cleaning chemicals), stress, include exposure to sunlight, cigarette smoke, a diet high in fat or sugar, processed food, medication, exercise, etc.
In short they are impossible to avoid.
Each cell in the body suffers at least 10,000 HITS by free radicals each day.
And there are close to 100 trillion cells in the body. Imagine the number of HITS your body suffers daily.
So, what can we do about it? We can consume antioxidants to help our bodies fight the effects of free radicals.

Water – an Essential Element for Cell Rejuvenation
Water is a very important nutrient in cell rejuvenation and optimum health.
Put simply, without water, nothing lives. Water is your energy source, like your body’s cash flow. Water energizes each cell of your body, giving them energy to live and adequate hydration increases the efficiency of your immune system, preventing damage to your DNA. Water powers and electrifies our brain functions and is needed for the efficient manufacture of all neurotransmitters, including serotonin. Water enhances the “mind/body” connection, reducing stress, anxiety, depression and helps maintain normal sleep.
Water is essential for your body’s digestion, metabolism and assimilation of food, and is a must for releasing energy from food.
Water is your body’s transportation mechanism, allowing movement of nutrients through your body. And water facilitates removal of toxic waste from different parts of the body taking it to the liver and kidneys for disposal. Water also prevents constipation and aids in weight loss.
Water is your body’s principal lubricant, it’s present in the joint spaces and spinal discs and helps prevents arthritis and back pain. Water dilutes the blood and prevents it from clotting during circulation, reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Proper hydration improves your skin and eyes.
We cannot store water, so we must continually replenish our supply by drinking pure, fresh energized water regularly.
Not just any water will do. Why? Water can contain toxins which add to your toxin load rather than eliminating toxins from your body. So what can you do about it? Drink pure and energized Hexagon water.
Enzyme Deficiency, what is it and how do you avoid it?
It’s something you probably never heard of, or thought about. I know I didn’t. So what is it about? Enzymes are the miracle nutrient vital for health.
We are all born with an “enzyme potential”. Our personal enzyme potential depends on our genes, something we can’t control. When our enzyme “bank” runs out, health suffers and life ends.
Every function of your body requires enzymes to make it happen. Without enzymes we wouldn’t be able to:-
Basically we wouldn’t be able to exist. Put simply, we would die.
It all sounds a bit dramatic, but it’s true. Our cells degenerate fast if you have an enzyme deficiency, causing aging and sickness.
However, enzymes aren’t forever, they have a limited life and must be replaced regularly. The problem is that you can’t get enzymes from cooked food. Every time we eat cooked food we make a withdrawal from your enzyme bank. Conversely each time you take an enzyme supplement you make a deposit. Eating enzyme-rich raw food is a good start, but it doesn’t count as a deposit as the enzymes required to digest a certain food are contained in that food.
So how can you increase the balance at your enzyme bank? Enzyme supplements. What is the best type of supplement? A complex bio enzyme supplement created using many fresh, raw fruits and vegetables to deliver a broad range of enzymes, in a pre-digested liquid form.

Over 110 Antioxidants work Synergistically to Offer Better & More Complete Protection
Free Radicals What Are They?
Highly unstable molecules that wreak havoc in the body.
Formed daily in the body every moment when you breathe or your body uses oxygen. Impossible to avoid.
Other causes: stress, exposure to sunlight, air pollution, house-cleaning chemicals, cigarette smoke, a diet high in fat or sugar, processed food, medication, exercise, etc.
Each cell in the body suffers at least 10,000 HITS by free radicals each day.
And there are close to 100 trillion cells in the body. Imagine the number of HITS your body suffers daily What do Free Radicals cause…
Elevated Blood Pressure
High Cholesterol Levels
Lowered Immune Function
Other Degenerative Diseases
What Combats Free Radicals? Antioxidants ! Over 110 Antioxidants & Cofactors in Stabilized Rice Bran work synergistically to offer More Effective & More Complete Protection.

We are alkaline creatures who require slightly alkaline blood pH of 7.35 to 7.45 to allow correct oxygenation of our blood so the body’s vital processes can function properly. A reading above or below this range means our body is under stress, leading to illness, disease or worse.
Normal blood pH has a very small window of acid/alkaline pH balance.
How does an acidic pH occur? From the foods we eat, (poor diet and acidic food), water, stress, intake of toxins, poor immune system. An acidic balance decreases the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and decreases the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to an impaired immune system. Plus your reserves of minerals will be depleted as your body tries to compensate for an acidic pH by using up your reserves of alkaline minerals.
It is important to understand that the pH thing is not just a piece of fancy chemistry we don’t need to worry too much about. Here are just three simple reasons why:
If our body pH sinks below 4.0. we die.
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and all disease-producing organisms flourish in an acidic medium and die in alkaline conditions. The same is true of Cancer cells. So once our body pH starts to drop below neutral, we are opening the door for disease right there.
All the many Enzymes required for every function in our bodies will not work under acid conditions.
So if we keep our body fluids alkaline, we are setting up the first line of defence against disease and aging.
