Natural Brain Health Support for Children
With kids returning to school, one of the things that us parents like to focus on is supporting our children’s brain health, and I’m going to share with you two amazing supplements that we have here at Organixx that I use in my son’s daily supplement routine. It’s a little bit of a more unique routine in that I take the capsules and I will break them open and I will put a third of the capsule in some sort of yogurt or smoothie mix, applesauce, or even a juice packet.
The Power of Fermented Functional Mushrooms
So, I want to share with you two resources that we have that are amazing. First of all, 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+]. It is amazing. There are a multitude of powerful, functional mushrooms that can help support powering up your child’s brain, and one of the things that’s really awesome about this blend is it’s fermented. So, we ferment the mushroom extracts in an adaptogenic, kind of liquid fermentation. So, this also adds to bioavailability of the powerful nutrients in the mushrooms, but also adds to stress management resources – adaptogenic herbals that can lower children’s stress levels.
So, functional mushrooms and 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+], some of the ones that I’m going to highlight today:
Lion’s mane is categorically one of the best functional mushrooms for brain function. We know that especially with young minds as kids are learning and teenagers, their brains are kind of resetting all the time. One of the things we know is that lion’s mane can really help support the neuroplasticity and the turnover of good healthy brain cells. So, we actually see the neurons firing in a stronger way and also developing in a healthy way so that their brain function, their memory improves, and overall, we see really powerful brain enhancement through the use of functional mushrooms.
There’s also chaga, which is a really good powerful antioxidant. There’s reishi and maitake – some really good mushrooms that we know are beneficial for immune health – but also are good for brain support. So, 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+] is one of the ones I will take one of these capsules, I will open it up, and I will put a third of the contents in a smoothie or a yogurt mix.
Brain-Supportive Botanicals and Herbs
The other one that is specifically brain-focused that we have is Brain Health 8 [formerly Ageless Brain]. So, it’s not just for us individuals in our mid-life or more senior time of our life, but we can use the properties of bacopa and camu camu to help support our kids’ brain health. And this is another one that we would open up and use a quarter of the capsule for the children’s version or the children’s dose. So, these two, 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+] and Brain Health 8 [formerly Ageless Brain], are really powerful for kids’ brain-supportive supplementation.
I’m excited to share this with you because one of the things with school returning, there’s a lot of kind of catch-up that happens, making sure kids are at the level where they left the previous grade, and so a lot of times there will be a lot of expectations put on kids and it can be stressful and it also requires that mental focus.
So, these two supplements, 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+] and Brain Health 8 [formerly Ageless Brain], can really help bolster your child’s learning and also retention as they learn new skills and tactics, techniques, and practices at school. So, I’m excited to share this tip for us parents out there who want to support their kids’ brain health.
