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!

The best part? Mushroom Mindboost tastes just like chocolate syrup, but without the sugar or artificial sweeteners! And today, we have a 30% OFF coupon for you! Just visit puralityhealth.com and use the coupon DRJ to access 30% OFF your purchase today!
