Who isn’t affected by “brain fog” during our busy lives? Food sensitivities, fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, and toxic abuse all act as ballast to our normal brain function. The Brain Smarts station offers a selection of “Nootropics” to help alleviate this syndrome. Simply put, nootropics are supplements which enhance brain cognition by addressing all the deficiencies which have built up over time.
The quest for anti-aging strategies is the holy grail. We prefer to think of anti-aging as a search for solutions which enhance your quality of life rather than simply extending it. We offer supplements like reservatrol and NAD which have been shown to do both. We have highlighted some great collagen products from Ancient Nutrition which help your skin and tendons to feel young again.
The underlying causes of inflammation vary from allergies, toxins, stress, and overuse of muscles and tendons. Treating the symptoms is important because chronic inflammation can prove more damaging than the underlying cause . Our Inflammation Station features products such as curcumin which has been proven to help break the cycle and allow the body to reset. Our CBD products offer an even greater impact on relieving the inflammation by targeting our endocannanabinoid system. Its like pressing the master reset on your body.
We believe good health starts with eating right. Pure and organic botanical products are a good second line of defense. Our due diligence in this area has uncovered the astounding anti-inflammatory health benefits that are possible from this plant. We offer a tincture which is created from a cold pressed extraction process in Colorado. The growing and extraction process is done in a manner which ensures purity of the product.
Our stomachs have formed symbiotically with good forms of bacteria to be able to digest food, regulate our hormones, create serotonin, and make us regular. Science has learned that the bacterial balance of our stomachs is in serious jeopardy these days as our diet of processed foods and sugars has caused new colonies of bad bacteria to take over. We really have no choice but to supplement the good bacteria in our gut to combat the bad and encourage proper hormonal balance in our bodies.
Many of us have an ancient genome that is challenged by modern processed food sources. Autoimmune disorders are often the result of assaulting our bodies with modern sources of carbohydrates and sugars. The solution to this dilemma is to switch to a ketogenic diet. Remarkable things can happen to our bodies when they are relieved of the trauma of fighting foods we are not equipped to digest.
The “Organic” label is helpful in helping customers seeking to promote good health through what they eat. It is important to remember what we are seeking to achieve; good quality produce made with no pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers, and no toxins. At For Goodness Sake we strive to achieve that objective by also knowing the farmers who are supplying us. We review the government reports on the produce to ensure quality.
The advantage of a boutique health food store is we can react quickly to changing tides in the field of supplements and nutrition. We are paying particular attention to new products in the area of nootropics (supplements that enhance neurotransmitter function). We spend time examining the best products and trying them ourselves before we bring them on board.
