Welcome to another installment of Purium Head to Toe. In this series, we help you fine-tune your health with Purium products. This blog’s focus will be on brain health!
Remember: we recommend that you maintain your baseline health with the Daily Core 4. Once you have that under control, we encourage you to consult our Purium Head to Toe guide to optimize your health.
Brain health may not seem too important to you if you are younger, but it’s always a good idea to take preventative care.
So, what product may support your cognition, memory, and function? Read this recap to learn more. (Click the Zoom links below to watch the Zooms instead).
Recap: Brain Health
The healthspan of our brain needs to match the lifespan of our bodies.
Amy started a Lifestyle Zoom with this powerful quote. Take a second to let it sink in.
As we age, we may encounter issues with our body that we learn to live with. Maybe our joints get a little weaker, maybe we can’t wake up as quickly as we used to. These factors may be uncomfortable at times, but otherwise, we can continue to live our lives without worry.
However, brain health does not work like this. If your health brings you 80 years of life, but your brain stops functioning properly before then, you may encounter major issues. It is definitely a sad thought, but it’s an idea we need to keep in the back of our minds.
So, what can we do about our brain health today, that will help us have a healthier tomorrow? Be conscious about the foods we eat. Our Co-Founder held this idea dearly and developed a product to support you.
Dave Sandoval created our product Revive-It-All with total brain health in mind. Here is how the product came to be.
Most people think that neurotransmission (the process in which chemicals in our body interact with our brain to help us function) only comes from brain. They believe that once the brain got tired, our neurotransmission function becomes weaker. This is how some believe memory loss and other brain-related issues come to life.
But that’s actually not the full picture.
Brain health is affected by neurotransmitters and neuroreceptors. Neuroreceptors receive a neurotransmitter and determine what to do with it. From there, your body respond accordingly.
Dave compares these neuroreceptors to pennies. When you see a brand new penny, it’s shiny. But after that penny is exchanged through monetary purchases, it starts to lose its shine. As it goes from customer to cashier to customer to cashier and so on, it bares wear and tear. If you were to look at the same penny a year later, it may look different–maybe darker, maybe a little more rugged.
Brain researchers found that they needed to help “scrub” these neurotransmitters clean to help overall brain function as we age. However, this is not an easy feat. The brain contains a “blood-brain barrier” that makes it hard for chemicals to enter.
But of course, where there’s a will, there is always a way…
Back in the early 2000’s, Dave stumbled upon an article in Reader’s Digest: The End of All Aging. In the article, researchers theorized that a certain plant chemical combination may be able to help the brain in ways that pharmaceutical companies never could before.
So, what was that combination? Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Dave took this synergistic combination and made it more efficient with Revive-It-All.
With the power of Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid, Dave also added a powerful antioxidant and enzyme: Ginkgo Biloba and superoxide dismutase.
This pharmaceutical-grade combination may support the body’s ability to improve memory, cognition and even reaction time! We know of MMA fighters who like to use Revive-It-All, so we included it in our Sports Pro Pack.
