The Brain

We are seeing younger and younger people in locked units in the nursing homes. We are not just talking about someone who misplaces their keys; we are talking about people in their 50’s and 60’s that are no longer able to function in society! How does the Nutegra Medical Nutrition Therapy Program help your brain functioning? It helps by reducing the amount of carbohydrate that you are eating through a meal plan that is only 20-25% carbohydrate and the rest of your nutrition plan is made up of protein and healthy fat choices. By reducing the carbohydrate we are preventing something called “Glycation of protein”. This is a process where sugar and protein combine in your circulatory system and adhere to the wall of the arteries and veins with a sticky substance. (Think of fondant) This glycation of protein will cause hardening of the arteries and prevents blood from flowing to your BRAIN! With your personal meal plan and the Omega 3 Fatty Acids in the Cellular Fix, you may notice better concentration, improved sleep and you just may remember where you placed those keys!

If your brain needs more repair we will look at using:
CoQ10: CoQ10 is found in every cell of the body and recent research shows that it prevents some symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease as well as aiding with heart functioning. Also anyone on a statin medication for cholesterol must be on CoQ10 to prevent muscle breakdown, including heart muscle tissue!


Phosadyl (Lecithin): Lecithin is an emulsifier it helps with fatty acid function. Two studies one from MIT and one from Vanderbilt found that supplementation with Lecithin improved left brain function which aides in the area of speech.

Remember, the brain is the control center of your body, without your brain functioning there is little else going on. Even sex; orgasm takes place in the brain first and so you want your brain to be functioning to “get you over the edge” as they say. Without good blood flow to your brain, all areas of your body will be off. With the Nutegra Medical Nutrition Therapy program we are seeing improvement in multiple areas, due to promoting individual basic good nutrition!
