The Benefits of Taking Brain Supplements, Part Two
In our previous blog post, we touched on some of the ways that taking brain supplements can improve brain health. If you missed part one, read through our first part and see The Benefits of Taking Brain Supplements.
Today, we’ll be touching on some of the other benefits associated with Ceretrophin, the formulas used for our BriteSMART brain supplement. At BriteFocus, our brain supplements were created for all different kinds of people, including:
- Baby boomers
- And more!
Improving Your Brain Health With Supplements
In part one of our series, we talked about the clinical trial conducted on Ceretrophin™, the formula that we use in our BriteSMART supplement. This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled exploratory trial that found the different ways brain supplements can help improve brain health.
In the last post, we covered Ceretrophin’s ability to increase your IQ, improve aspects of decision making, and reduce stress and tension in the brain. Today, we’re here to look at four additional benefits so you can better understand if you and your brain health would benefit from one of our brain supplements. These four benefits include:
- Increased memory recall
- Improved working memory
- Decreased mistakes
- Increased mood
If you missed our first part about the benefits of taking brain supplements, make sure you read through that article to learn even more about the ways you can improve your brain health!
Increased Memory Recall
The Ceretrophin clinical study showed a 2.52% improvement in the accuracy of participants’ memory recall 30 days after they took the supplement.
Our memories are important and memory recall is an important component of a brain’s function. The ability to recall certain memories allows your brain to use those memories to help inform your present and future actions.
Memories hold knowledge about our lives, our personality traits, and distinct attributes. Our memories also link our past and present and help us plan for the future. In fact, a research study looked at how memory worked in participants with depression. They found that the impaired memory of the depressed participants made it more challenging for them to recall past memories or imagine different future outcomes.
So if your brain is able to recall information quickly and easily, it is easier for your brain to make informed decisions about the present and future.
Improved Short Term Memory
At the end of the 30-day study, participants showed a 0.51% improvement in their ability to remember numbers for a short period of time. This showed the supplement’s ability to improve working memory.
There are many different types of memories that are kept in the brain. While the terms “working memory” and “short term memory” are often used interchangeably, they are not the same thing. The short term memory retains the information and is part of the working memory. The working memory both retains information and properly utilizes that information. But both short term and working memory are retained for short periods of time — sometimes less than 20 seconds — while long-term memory stores, retrieves, and manages information.
When you find a brain supplement that can help improve that working memory, you’ll be able to better retain and utilize new things in your working memory.
Mistakes are a part of being human. But did you know that your brain reacts a certain way when you make a mistake? The Ceretrophin study showed that participants made 29.6% less mistakes after thirty days on their brain supplements. This included:
- Less false alarms
- Improved concentration
- Improved decision making and information processing
- Improved accuracy in discriminating between stimulus alternatives
When your brain makes a mistake, two different things happen. First, your brain makes an initial signal to indicate that something went wrong. Then, your brain will fire another signal that indicates that you’re trying to fix the problem. Both of these signals happen within a quarter of a second after you make the mistake.
But why did you make the mistake in the first place? At the moment when you made the mistake, your brain believed that it was doing the right thing. According to a neurological study at Carnegie Mellon Univerisity, this happens because there is a “mismatch between the subjects’ internal models and reality.” This could be a misconception about how the world works or incorrect beliefs about how a limb or body part can move or operate.
If you notice that you’re making silly mistakes because you’re not able to focus or think clearly, a brain supplement could help improve your concentration and prevent those mistakes in the first place.
The Ceretrophin study found that participants had a 3.25% reduction in their stress level from day one to day thirty when they were on a brain supplement. Not sure how that works?
The brain is also responsible for regulating and dictating your mood. This is because the levels of different chemicals in your brain control different emotions. For example, three of the most commonly studied neurotransmitters — the chemical messengers in your brain — are dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. These are related to your pleasure, memory, and controlling stress and anxiety. So boosting these different neurotransmitters can help control or even improve your overall mood.
