Did you know that even moderate alcohol consumption has been shown to damage brain neurons?

 
Further, cell phone and WIFI radiation (which is practically unavoidable) has been linked to disruption of the protective blood-brain barrier (allowing greater levels of toxins into the brain that would otherwise be shielded).
 
Then there's daily hygiene -- were you aware that most antiperspirants and deodorants contain aluminum that can cause toxic build-up of heavy metals in the brain?
 
To add insult to injury, new research even shows that the electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones may disrupt the DNA of your delicate brain cells leading to brain dysfunction.
 
How many hours per week do you use your cell phone?
 
It sounds pretty overwhelming, and it is, but what can you to combat the impact of the these every day items that are preying on the delicate cells of your brain?  Here are just a few things that can make a big difference:
 
1. Consume more omega-3s in your diet from fish like salmon & mackerel.  Your body uses these healthy fats as building blocks for the brain's electrical messengers called neurotransmitters.  You can also use a quality omega-3 supplement such as Tobis gold 1000mg capsules or oil.
 
2. Strive for 8 to 9 hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep each night.  Lack of sleep can deplete important brain nutrients that are "recharged" during the sleep cycle.
 
3. Eat more probiotic rich foods like yogurt, kefir, fermented pickles and sauerkraut, or supplement with a premium probiotic supplement like Xenca Five a day plus in powder or capsule form.
