3 supplements for brain health

Bacopa In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Bacopa monnieri is also called “brahmi,” which means “brain tonic.” The active ingredients are bacosides, and they work synergistically with a mix of other plant components to support memory and learning capacity. A research review that detailed a dozen human trials with participant ages ranging from children to seniors concluded that bacopa protects neurological function and enhances mental performance.

Because Patrick Mateer and Seal The Seasons are on a mission to rescue local farmers, lift up local economies, and furnish a profusion of perfectly ripe, brilliantly flavored local fruits every day of the year. We’re talking peaches from South Carolina, cranberries from Wisconsin, cherries from New York, strawberries from Oregon, blueberries from California; all are locally grown, family farmed, non-GMO, and frozen at their very peak of blissful ripeness.
