If I wanted my brain to be healthy here is a few things I would start with:
Vitamins A, D, C, B6, B12, B1; Carnitine, Zinc, Folate, Glutamine, Glutathione & Cysteine, and Magnesium.
I recommend using Young Living Products because of their Seed to Seal Guarantee and the fact that they use essential oils in their supplements to enhance the effectiveness of the minerals.
Young Living OmegaGize - contains DHA/CoQ10/D3. WONDERFUL supplement, and the capsules are tiny! The brain needs these fatty oils to function properly!

Sleep, It does a body good!
Did you know:
1. Children need 10 -11 hours of sleep every night and adults need a minimum of 7-9 hours?
2. Our brains detox while we sleep?
3. Melatonin protects against oxidative stress?
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour "clock" that plays a critical role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up. When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin.
Supporting deep sleep:
Young Living Lavender, Young Living RutaVala, Young Living Peace & Calming or Young Living Sleepyize are wonderful oils to promote healthier sleep.
Just 30 minutes of exercise a day has been shown to:
- Reduce Alzheimer's by 50%
- Reduce anxiety and depression by 50%
- Reduce progression to diabetes by 58%
- Reduce overall risk of dying by 23%
Exercise keeps your brain from shrinking, according to Dr. Olivier Wenker, Physician for Integrative Medicine
Our body produces serotonin in our gut, which our brain needs for optimal health. So how do we keep our gut healthy?
I highly recommend getting the book "Inner Transformations Using Essential Oils" by Dr. LeAnne Deardeuff, DC & Dr. David Deardeuff, DC. This book is an awesome way of explaining the brain to gut connection and also how all the other organs function with cleanses.
What can I eat to keep up ultimate health?
There is a lot of different "DIETS" out there but from the research I've been doing I found the following 2 diets to be the best. (Please be sure to consult your physician to determine which diets best suite your body type)
1. Vegan - No Meat, Dairy or Eggs. "Vegan diet tends to be higher in dietary fiber, magnesium, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, iron and phytochemicals, and lower in calories, saturated fat, cholesterol, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, calcium, zinc and vitamin B12.[n 2] Well-planned vegan diets can reduce the risk of some types of chronic disease, including heart disease, and are regarded as appropriate for all stages of the life-cycle by the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council, and Dietitians of Canada. Because uncontaminated plant foods do not provide vitamin B12 (which is produced by microorganisms such as bacteria), researchers agree that vegans should eat B12-fortified foods or take a supplement." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veganism
2. Paleo - "The paleolithic diet (also called the paleo diet, caveman diet or stone-age diet) is based mainly on foods presumed to be available to paleolithic humans. There is wide variability in the way the diet is interpreted. It includes vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, meat, and organ meats while excluding foods such as dairy products, grains, sugar, legumes, processed oils, salt, and alcohol or coffee." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet
"Foods high in fiber and phytonutrients are brain-healing foods. Whole grains such as oats, whole wheat, brown rice, bulgur and bran provide both fiber and nutrients. So do beans and legumes. Omega-3-rich foods like sardines, tuna and wild salmon are beneficial. Foods high in antioxidants such as blueberries, carrots and leafy dark green vegetables are brain nutrient powerhouses. Seeds and nuts like ground flaxseeds, walnuts and almonds are additional foods that provide health benefits." - http://www.ehow.com/about_5130432_after-foods-vitamins-heal-brain.html
