How to Enhanced Brain Function, Memory and Learning



   I love working at home but at times it can be frustrating. About a month ago, I shared with you what a typical day looks like for me in my post A Day In The Life Of A Blogger. This post basically showed all the different things that I do most days as a blogger. One of the main things that most bloggers have to do is write. For the most part, I enjoy writing and have no trouble coming up with things to talk about. Then there are the days when the topic that I have to write about is not easy. I have had many posts that take a couple days to come up with ideas on what to write. My best thinking is done when I am out running. I wish there was some way that I could record my thoughts while I am running onto my computer. I could so much work done that way. There are also the days when my mind just does not want to work and I have trouble thinking. I have had way too many of these days that I call brain fog. When my brain is in its fog, I not only have trouble concentrating but I also have trouble remembering things.


  Since I am into healthy living, I wondered if my body was deficient in something that could be causing my brain fogs. I discovered that maybe it could be choline as another symptom of being deficient was having trouble sleeping, that's me alright. I also learned that endurance athletes could be at risk for choline deficiency and I have been trying to increase my speed with my running the past couple of months. I also learned that vegetarians(that's me) and vegans are more prone to experiencing a deficiency in choline. Did you know that people who drink a lot can be at risk of choline deficiency? In fact, most people do not intake enough of this mineral that is good for the brain as it is found in only a couple of food items like eggs, liver, beef, salmon, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, breast milk, and some beans. Since I don't eat meat and only eat eggs, beans, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts a couple times a week, I decide that it was time for me to start adding more choline to my diet and a choline supplement sounded like the best option. Did you know that choline is a water soluble mineral and must be replaced daily? Some studies also think a choline deficiency might be linked to dementia and Alzheimer's. 


  After doing some research about the benefits of taking choline, I decided that a supplement would be good for my brain function and memory problems.  I decided to try Vitamonk Alpha GPC for my choline supplement. I liked that it was a 100% safe to take and that it not only supports brain cognition but also promotes learning and memory. I wanted to get my brain out of its fog so I could be more productive with my writing as for me writing is how I make my money. I found it easy to take this choline supplement as not only is it natural but it is also vegetarian and gluten-free.

Alpha GPC is an all-natural nootropic that has been shown to:
+ support cognition and mental performance (in a natural and healthy way)
+ promote memory and learning in healthy individuals
+ boost your focus (even in stressful situations)
  
Scientific studies show that Alpha GPC is the most efficient dietary supplement to get the powerful molecule choline through your diet, into your blood and brain. Once absorbed, it turns into acetylcholine - the learning neurotransmitter - leading to a whole range of cognitive enhancing properties.

Symptoms of a choline deficiency may possibly include:
low energy levels of fatigue
memory loss
cognitive decline
learning disabilities
muscle aches
nerve damage
mood changes or disorders


   I have been taking Alpha GPC for about a week and my brain seems less foggy. I have also been able to focus better on my work. Alpha GPC really isn't meant to be a "quick fix" product and it might take a while for me to see changes in my cognition. I like taking this supplement as choline is something that my body needs and it will not only help my brain now but also may help in the future to prevent dementia problems. My mom seems to complain about her memory and not being able to remember things. So I think I will get her started on this choline supplement. Since it is found in food and is a safe water soluble mineral, it is safe for my mom too.

                       Do you think your body may be deficient in choline?

  I only covered a little bit about choline and its uses. There is so much more information at Vitamonk's website. So go learn more about how this mineral at the below links.

  2. I get brain fog all the time too - it's definitely a side effect of my autoimmune condition. I find its better when I avoid gluten, but its still there so I'm definitely going to look into Choline!

  3. I am in a cloud sometimes and I thought it could be just getting older. I would talk to my doctor first before taking anything.

  6. I need this supplement like right now. Our bodies cannot produce all the required dietary allowance that is why we need to take supplements. I am checking out VitaMonk's website.

  7. Guess I'm somewhat skeptical although I will admit to not having as good a memory as I once had. My favorite is when I could put together a 20 slide presentation in my head while driving home, run in the house & write it down before talking to anyone ... it worked. Of course that was more than 20 yrs ago & now I need paper to do this.
