Brain Health Nutrition

Author: Christine Rauch-Nell (B.Pharm)

Our brain and diet play a key role in our longevity. And how healthy that longevity is. The foods we derive our nutrition from can directly impact what inflammation and oxidative stress our bodies may experience. This in turn can increase our risk for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease. 

The nutrients Vitamin B1, B6, B12, and Folate (Vitamin B9) as well as Vitamin D3 all play an essential role in the maintenance of brain health

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) helps your body convert food into energy, while your brain needs it to metabolise glucose and it is necessary for proper nerve functioning.  

Vitamin B6 activates enzymes that are in charge of producing energy, neurotransmitters as well as red and white blood cells that support your immune system.  

Folate and Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) help make neurotransmitters, haemoglobin, and DNA, while also keeping nerve cells and red blood cells healthy.  

Vitamin D3 assists as a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant for increased Brain Health support and decreasing the risk of neurodegeneration. 

NeuroXCEL is an activated B-Complex supplement with additional Vitamin D3 that can be used daily to assist with your brain nutrition. NeuroXCEL contains Active B-Vitamins such as Vitamin B1, B6, B12 and Folate as well as 1000 IU Vitamin D3 to help your brain health.
