Can supplements help me with my focus and concentration?

The Brainy One Cognitive Complex

When taking nutrients for brain health, it is essential to get the right blend. Taking each nutrient and herb individually would be unrealistic, yet just taking one, means missing out on many other important nutrients. Nude Health have expertly formulated The Brainy One Cognitive Complex to help you get the most benefit in just one capsule. Nude Health use some of the most active and bioavailable forms or nutrients and herbal extracts, including methylated B12, which is very easy for your body to use. Some people have difficulty using other forms of vitamin B12.  If you want to support your cognitive health, consider taking this supplement to help with your focus and concentration. It can be even more effective if taken alongside Nude Health’s Omega 3 supplement for even more added benefits.

How does the brain work? 

The brain is a dense organ consisting of nerves. These nerves control the function of the body. The nerves rely on neurotransmitters which are messengers and instruct the brains’ functions for things like sleep, mood, motivation, learning, focus and concentration. These neurotransmitters are made up of certain nutrients, which must be present in the diet for the brains proper function. 

Another important factor in brain health and function is a healthy myelin sheath. This is the outer coating of the nerves and controls the speed of messages. The myelin sheath requires the right nutrients to preserve its health and function. The brain is incredibly complex and needs a wide range of nutrients to help it work efficiently. Look for a supplement designed specifically for cognitive function which includes the following nutrients – 

Which nutrients should I take for focus and concentration?

Vitamin B1 – Also known as thiamin, is needed for brain cell metabolism and to effectively create energy from glucose. A constant source of energy for the brain is needed to maintain concentration and focus. The brain has a direct biochemical process for processing thiamin, which indicates how important it is.  Thiamin is also needed to produce a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine plays an important role in cognitive function, working memory, attention, episodic memory, and spatial memory function. https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnbeh.2012.00024/full

Vitamin B3 – Also called niacin is also required for brain cell metabolism and to effectively create energy from glucose. It works directly with thiamin for this function.  A constant supply of glucose is needed to maintain focus and concentration and prevent memory loss. Any wains in energy supply may lead to mental fatigue and poor concentration. Vitamin B3 is also needed for the production of a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Dopamine supports mental function by improving cognition and attention.  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25455298/

Vitamin B6 – Also called pyridoxine is another essential vitamin for the brain. Vitamin B6 is required for the synthesis of many neurotransmitters, including serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin levels in particular are needed to maintain motivation for a task, and dopamine supports cognition and attention. Vitamin B6 is also needed for the production of a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which helps to bring a sense of calm, and supports overall brain health. 

Vitamin B12 – Vitamin B12 is needed to maintain the myelin sheath of the nerves which regulate the speed of nerve communications. B12 is essential for the production of dopamine, adrenaline and serotonin, all of which support brain function. When the body has sufficient adrenaline, it is well oxygenated. A well oxygenated brain improves cognition and focus. 

Pantothenic Acid – Also called vitamin B5 is required as a structural component in the brain. Pantothenic acid is needed for the production of a substance called coenzyme A, which is then used in multiple neurotransmitters and for effective brain cell-to-brain cell communication. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4772032/ 

Zinc – Zinc plays an important role in the way nerves communicate with each other. This communication is called synaptic transmission and is essential for the metabolism in the brain and many enzymatic processes needed for proper brain function. Neurons in the brain contain zinc as part of their structure, so any lack of zinc may affect neuron function. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7082716/

Ginkgo Biloba leaf extract – Ginkgo biloba is an herb which is used to encourage blood flow to the brain. Good blood flow is necessary for proper oxygenation of the of the brain, and for the supply of nutrients for optimum function. Good blood flow may improve focus, concentration and attention span. Ginkgo also has the ability to protect your brain cells from oxidative damage. Oxidative damage occurs with day-to-day functions, as well as environmental factors such exposure to pollution, smoking and poor diet and in the long run can lead to a decline in brain function. 

Bacopa Monnieri Extract – Bacopa Monnieri is an herb which may increase the length of dendrites, part of the nerve cells that are closely linked to learning and memory and learning. Studies suggest that Bacopa Monnieri may improve the speed of processing visual information, rate of learning, attention and ability to process information. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11498727/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23320031/ 

Rhodiola Rosea Root – Rhodiola is an apoptogenic herb. This means it has a regulating effect within the body. Rhodiola may be beneficial for mental fatigue. One study demonstrated that Rhodiola may improve performance at work by 20%. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11081987/ Another study concluded that Rhodiola may improve capacity for mental work. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12725561/  Rhodiola is commonly taken by people who are taking exams as it helps with their focus and concentration.

Choline – Choline has a close relationship with vitamins B6 and B12. Choline is needed for the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which carries signals between the brain cells and supports memory, learning and mental function. The richest food sources of choline are from animal products so watch out for your choline levels if you don’t eat these.
