Brain fog: causes and remedies

Brain fog: causes and remedies

Brain fog does not refer to a specific illness but to symptoms that cause problems with thinking. Having brain fog can make you feel distracted, confused, and unorganized. Here is a list of reasons you may have brain fog:

1— Pregnancy: In addition to the changes your body undergoes during pregnancy, the chemicals released to protect and nourish your unborn child can affect your memory. It is common for pregnant women to forget things.

2— MS: This disease affects the central nervous system and can alter the way the brain communicates with other organs. MS patients usually experience memory, attention, planning, or language problems. It can help to have learning and memory exercises, and therapists can show patients new ways to handle challenges they face. 

3— Medication: Certain medications may result in brain fog. When you have trouble thinking or remembering things after taking your medicines, you should contact your doctor.

4— Menopause: Women in menopause may experience difficulty remembering or learning new things. They usually experience this symptom after their last period, around 50. Supplements and other types of medication may be helpful.

5— Having depression: It may become difficult for you to remember things or analyze problems. It may be related to the lack of energy and motivation that comes with depression, or it could be because of the mental fogginess caused by depression. Medications and talk therapy are both effective treatments for depression.

6— Sleep: Sleep helps your brain work properly, but too much sleep can make you feel foggy. Try to get seven to nine hours of sleep every night. Keep your computer and smartphone out of your bedroom to get a good night's sleep. You may also want to avoid caffeine and alcohol after lunch or right before bedtime. Getting to bed and waking up at the same time can also be helpful. If you suspect that your brain fog is the result of sleeping disorders like apnea, insomnia, or narcolepsy, you should see a doctor.

7— Lupus: Lupus causes your immune system to attack your body. The symptoms may differ from case to case. Most lupus patients have difficulties with memory, confusion, or concentration.

Many factors can contribute to brain fog symptoms, including nutritional deficiencies. Patients with medical conditions associated with brain fog are more likely to experience these symptoms. Taking dietary supplements may be helpful if brain fog results from a lack of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. In this article, we discuss six evidence-based nutrients that may help relieve brain fog.

Vitamin D This fat-soluble vitamin is crucial for immune and brain health. Low vitamin D levels can negatively impact cognitive health and cause brain fog. Earlier, we discussed that depression often causes memory problems and brain fog symptoms, such as poor concentration. Many people with depression are deficient in several nutrients, including vitamin D. Studies indicate that supplements with vitamin D can improve depressive symptoms such as brain fog.

Moreover, a small study of 42 postmenopausal women deficient in vitamin D found that those taking 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily for one year performed better in learning and memory tests than those taking 600 IU or 4,000 IU. In addition to reducing brain fog, mushroom vitamin D in our daily formula for women and men helps improve memory, concentration, and mood.

Magnesium Magnesium is an essential mineral necessary for many body functions, such as enzymatic reactions, energy production, nerve function, and blood pressure regulation. Many people do not get enough magnesium in their diet, which may negatively impact brain health and lead to brain fog symptoms such as difficulty concentrating.

Those who are stressed have low magnesium levels that can even make them more susceptible to stress. Anxiety symptoms, memory impairment, and poor concentration can all result from stress. Maintaining adequate magnesium levels with Sanbera Essential Day To Day may reduce susceptibility to stress and stress-related cognitive impairment, as well as brain fog symptoms.

With magnesium derived from plants in Essential Women and Essential Men, plus mushroom vitamin D, anxiety and depression symptoms may be relieved, which reduces brain fog related to these common mental health conditions.

Vitamin C The vital role of vitamin C in the immune system is hard to overstate, but it is also critical for many other bodily functions, including brain health. Those with adequate blood levels of vitamin C performed significantly better on tests assessing memory, attention, reaction time, and focus than those with low vitamin C levels, according to a study that included 80 healthy adults.

Vitamin C deficiency has also been linked with depression and cognitive decline. As a result of supplementing with Acerola vitamin C day and night, we can maintain a stable mood, improve mental performance, and combat depression.

B Complex Deficient levels of specific B vitamins can lead to brain fog symptoms such as memory problems, difficulty concentrating, and more. Sanbera may help reduce these symptoms in people with low levels of B vitamins.

A recent study of 39,000 people found that low vitamin B12 levels were associated with poor memory and attention. You may also experience brain fog if your levels of folate and vitamin B6 are low. Thus, taking a high-quality B complex nutritional supplement such as Sanbera may prevent these symptoms. Combined, Essential Day to Day and Reload Time to Time deliver the most absorbable form of all the B vitamins your brain and body require to function both in the day and at night.

Vitamin A Vitamin A is rich in retinol. It also has retinoic acid and retinaldehyde that are bio-active metabolites. Beta carotene-rich provitamin A in our Essential Women and Essential Men supports brain health by stimulating cell growth.

Vitamin E Vitamin E is a lipid-soluble vitamin. As a result, it can cross the blood-brain barrier. In addition to preventing dementia, it delays cognitive decline. In response to free radicals, the body experiences oxidative stress, which damages the neurons and causes brain fog. In the body, vitamin E that can be found in our daily formulas for women and men is responsible for regenerating these nerve cells.
