MOST OF US are con­cerned about our mem­ory, brain func­tion, and men­tal per­for­mance, and look for ways to sup­port it.

Re­vive Mas­ter­mind is a new sup­ple­ment on the mar­ket that will help you achieve this; it’s suit­able for all stages of life. If you’re a stu­dent you can take it to help fo­cus dur­ing exam prepa­ra­tion.

If you’re busy with life’s de­mands you can take it to boost brain per­for­mance. To en­sure that you will re­mem­ber your vi­tal ap­point­ments and where you left your car keys! If you’re se­nior you may need it for men­tal per­for­mance, brain and cog­ni­tive func­tion, you could take it for six to nine months; as­sess how you’re feel­ing then take it ev­ery so of­ten af­ter that.

How does it work? Mas­ter­mind con­tains DHA which con­trib­utes to the main­te­nance of nor­mal brain func­tion. Fish oil con­tains DHA, but this for­mula con­tains a veg­e­tar­ian source of Omega 3 DHA pow­der from an al­gae source.

It also con­tains Cho­line and Uri­dine which means that the ben­e­fits of DHA are en­hanced.

It pro­vides Zinc which is im­por­tant for nor­mal brain func­tion help­ing you to co-or­di­nate the in­for­ma­tion that you re­ceive more ef­fec­tively.

It con­tains B12 which con­trib­utes to the nor­mal func­tion­ing of the ner­vous sys­tem, and B5 which is im­por­tant for men­tal per­for­mance. So while they are not nec­es­sar­ily new in­gre­di­ents, it’s the com­bi­na­tion of them work­ing to­gether syn­er­gis­ti­cally that cre­ates an amaz­ing prod­uct. It’s packed in in­di­vid­ual sa­chets which you add to water and take daily.

If you want to look af­ter your brain you should avoid su­gar in all its forms. You need to eat oily fish at least 3-5 times a week, in­clude nuts, seeds, olive oil and co­conut oil. Eat plenty of veg­eta­bles and fruit they pro­vide anti-ox­i­dants and will pro­tect the cells in the body from dam­age. Add Lecithin gran­ules to your food, it’s great for the brain. Sup­ple­ments that con­tain Argi­nine will help keep the ar­ter­ies clear en­sur­ing proper blood flow to the brain.

Other things you need to do in­clude; keep­ing the mind ac­tive, reg­u­lar ex­er­cise, and hav­ing a good in­ter­ac­tive so­cial life is im­por­tant.

If you are hav­ing prob­lems with your mem­ory don’t iso­late your­self. Talk to peo­ple and let them know how you’re feel­ing. True friends are there to help you, not judge you.
