Nutritional Supplements For Brain Health & Energy

Rethinking the idea of nutritional supplementation in light of what is truly nourishing (and beyond).

Close to forty-four years ago I was introduced to taking nutritional supplements (by a medical doctor's recommendation) and under the
belief that the supplements would give my body things it apparently was lacking from my diet at that time. I continued taking nutritional supplements over the subsequent years and which my ongoing research (that included the poor conditions of our soils across the u.s. of A plus other factors) further validated my convictions that food was lacking in nutrients. However, my way of thinking on this began to change once I was introduced to Nourishing Traditions and the work of Weston A. Price.

I was ready for this change as I had known that really good nutrition needed to come from good nourishing food. I also knew that my supplementation was not going to solve the problems with nutrient-poor foods. I wanted to be as healthy as possible plus I wanted to make a difference with the rest of the big food picture - from soil all the way through the food system to our tables.

Fortunately a number of things came together for me that allowed me to make a number of wonderful shifts in my life and especially with my relationship with food. For the past fourteen plus years I now place more emphasis on the importance of having a completely nourishing diet as the first foundation and I place less emphasis on supplementation. From this perspective I responded to a friend's inquiry regrading a brain health supplement product as follows.:

"Personally I think grass-fed fats are probably the first order
of real food nourishment for the brain (as well as for energy)
and that much of the isolated 'nutrients' found in supplements
require a complete nourishing diet base to activate and
optimize their potential effectiveness. Next to that I think
gut health has an very important role for both the brain
and for energy. Last but not the least I think emotional
well being supports healthy brain function and also has
an impact on energy. Together these take into
consideration a certain 'body-mind' and 'mind-body'
approach which goes along with what I know of the
unison relationship between psyche-brain-body-organ."

There was a time when I was taking more supplements than I could
list here. Now I am taking one and it is not for either my brain or my energy. I am so grateful that I do not feel a lack with either of those!
