7 HEALTHY FOODS FOR THE BRAIN
Evermind is a natural-source, plant-based cognitive elixir packed with healthy food for your brain. Learn more about 7 healthy food ingredients we choose specifically for their ability to nourish the brain.
The health benefits of walnuts are well documented. Walnuts are rich in alpha-linolenic acid, a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid. Walnuts also possess more phytonutrients and polyphenolic compounds than any other type of nut on the planet. Both omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols are considered critical brain foods that may counteract oxidative stress and inflammation. For scientists, walnuts are the supreme food to support a healthy brain.*Please do not drink Evermind if you are allergic to walnuts.
Flax seeds are a tiny seed that pack a powerful dose of Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based essential omega-3 fatty acid. Evermind delivers 2,000mg of ALA omega-3s from walnuts and flax. ALA is especially important in supporting brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein found in the brain and spinal cord that plays a key role in keeping nerve cells (neurons) health.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Lion’s mane mushrooms contain compounds that stimulate the growth of brain cells (neurogenesis) and protect them from damage. Lion’s mane is also known for its anti-fatigue effects, which helps improve physical energy independent of its benefits on mental function.
Choline is an essential nutrient similar to vitamin B complex. It impacts healthy brain development and the nervous system, muscle movement, liver function and metabolism. It is required to make acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in memory. The body does not produce enough choline on its own, so you need to get the majority of it through diet, especially challenging if you are a plant-based consumer. Fortunately, Evermind delivers a healthy dose of choline bitartrate from walnuts to fuel your active brain. We use Choline Bitartrate which is the only form of food-grade choline that has GRAS (Generally Accepted as Safe) status.
A great coffee alternative, Evermind contains 80 mg of caffeine from organic Guayusa, a sustainably grown Amazonian leaf. Guayusa also contains L-theanine and theobromine. These three plant-based ingredients are naturally synergistic, offering more benefits combined than caffeine alone. Coffee contains 140 grams of caffeine and is often associated with jitters and post caffeine crash. Mental alertness is the biggest brain benefit of this healthy ingredient.
Evermind contains only 3 grams of sugar per bottle, with NO added sugars. We use organic date paste (and monk fruit) for flavor, for a natural sweetness and low sugar levels. Monk fruit is low-glycemic and low-FODMAP, which means the natural sugars release and assimilate slowly into the bloodstream. A good source of plant-based fiber, dates are also rich in flavonoids, a powerful antioxidant thought to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Like date paste, we use nutrient rich monk fruit to add natural sweetness without the effects of high-glycemic sugars. A natural anti-inflammatory, monk fruit has no calories, carbs or fats, making it a great option for maintaining a healthy weight.
