14 Jul Feel LikeYou’re Losing Your Mind? It Might Be Brain Fog
Most have heard of brain fog. Its symptoms range from difficulty concentrating, and losing track of keys, to trouble remembering names or appointments. If you feel distracted and less focused today, you may have wondered how brain fog will progress as you age.
While the loss of mental sharpness and memory is a natural part of the aging process, it is not inevitable.There are steps you can take to protect, maintain, or reinvigorate your brain health.
There are many causes of brain fog, which include:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Metabolic diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, thyroid disease)
- Neurotransmitter (dopamine, glutamate, epinephrine) imbalances
Low levels of dopamine, norepinephrine, or glutamate – the neurotransmitters in our body- can cause low brain function or create a lack of focus. These imbalances can be treated with specific amino acids to improve brain function. The first step is getting your neurotransmitters tested.
You are in charge of your brain health. You can be focused and alert, but fixing your brain starts with eating a healthy diet, staying active, decreasing your stress – and ensuring your neurotransmitters are fully optimized.
