In This Episode:
Brain regeneration is an important concept that is critical in today’s environment. Your brain is the command center of your nervous system and the center of all of your body’s functions and systems.
The health of your brain is essential for your memory, learning, mental energy, and mood, and the prevention of mental health issues and neurodegenerative disorders.
Even though most of your brain cells are formed in the womb and during infancy, new research suggests that your brain is able to regenerate and create new cells throughout your life. This means that you can keep your brain health, mental energy, and memory even as you age.
In this podcast, you will learn what brain regeneration, BDNF and neuroplasticity are and why are they important for brain health. You will understand the most common things that can damage your brain. I will also share 12 powerful ways to heal your brain cells and support your brain health naturally.

Purality – Mushroom Mindboost
Our brains rely on SO many compounds found in nature. These include vitamins and minerals, but also things like polysaccharides, flavonoids, amino acids, carotenoids, folates, enzymes, and so, so much more. But how many of these are you actually getting?
Due to modern farming practices, environmental pollution, and the continued loss of nutrients in our foods, most people aren’t taking in nearly enough of what their brains need.
If you’re experiencing cognition problems like memory loss or brain fog, then chances are you too are missing out on a lot of these important compounds.
The good news? Medicinal mushrooms contain ALL of these compounds and more!
This is why our friends over at Purality Health have infused five of the most nutritious medicinal mushrooms with their MICELLE LIPOSOMAL formula to create Mushroom Mindboost.
Purality Health’s patented formula allows these rare, highly beneficial mushroom compounds to be safely shuttled directly into your bloodstream. The result is clearer thinking, improved memory retention, and feeling as spry as your young self again!
