Inositol

Inositol

Inositol, sometimes referred to as Vitamin B8, is a water soluble fatty lipid that is required by the body for the formation of healthy cells. Inositol has been shown to be effective in treating some cases of the following:

    • Depression
    • Anxiety and panic attacks
    • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
    • Bipolar Mood Disorder

Patients treated with supplements of inositol showed a definite improvement in several studies of depression. Clinical evidence suggests that large doses of inositol reduce the number and severity of panic attacks.

Omega 3 Fish Oil

Omega 3 Fish Oil

The human body requires a tremendous amount of omega 3 fatty acids to function properly. The human brain is comprised of 60% fats, and approximately half of that fat is DHA omega 3. This means that nature intended the human brain to be "powered" by fats. Although it's not a perfect metaphor, it's somewhat like trying to run a car without fuel.

Deficiencies in omega 3 fats have been linked to:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Postpartum depression
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • ADHD and ADD.

Researchers from institutions such as the Harvard School of Public Health have shown some of these conditions will greatly improve with increased omega 3 fatty acid intake. Other studies have shown that even if you don't have any of these conditions, memory and focus can improve with consistent use of fish oil supplements. The bottom line is that Omega 3 helps your mind function, making it easier to process, understand and recall information. There are also added benefits, such as glowing skin and hair!
