Beat Fogginess & Achieve Mental Clarity With This Nootropic Supplement*
If you've recently experienced brain fog, you definitely aren't alone. Whether your mental fogginess is due to hormonal fluctuations, external stressors, nutritional status, seasonal shifts (hello, pollen season!), or even environmental toxins—it seems everyone is dealing with mental clarity challenges as of late.
So much to do, yet so little clarity and focus. Am I right?
What is brain fog?
Brain fog is the colloquial term for occasional cognitive challenges—such as confusion, forgetfulness, and the inability to focus or think clearly. We are not talking about extended periods of fogginess here. For those situations, you'll want to check with a health care practitioner.
While struggling to concentrate is no reason to panic, it certainly can be frustrating when you're trying to wrap up a big project, stay present with your partner, or follow along as your child tells you about their day.
If you're nodding your head along and saying "yes, that sounds just like me—and it is frustrating," then hang tight because help is on the way!
How mbg's brain guard+ can help combat occasional fog.
Our new proactive brain health supplement, brain guard+, is packed with nootropic brain nutrients (i.e., citicoline, kanna, and resveratrol) that promote cognitive performance and mental sharpness.* Indeed, while we vetted many possible ingredients and bioactives to create this unique formula, supporting mental clarity was top of mind.
- Citicoline (as Cognizin®) is a brain nutrient that supports neurotransmitter synthesis—specifically, acetylcholine and dopamine, which help enhance focus, memory, clarity, and learning. Additionally, this powerful neuronutrient increases mental energy in the frontal lobe (an area of the brain impacted by temporary fog).*
- Kanna (as Zembrin®) is unique plant extract from South Africa that helps promote stress management, enhance stress resilience, and reduce feelings of anxiousness (that often accompany mental fogginess, by the way). Additionally, this little-known botanical supports a healthy mood and deep, restful sleep1 (both of which are key to promoting mental clarity).*
- Resveratrol (as Veri-Te™) is a polyphenol that increases cerebral blood flow (I repeat, blood flow to your brain!), which not only combats fogginess but also improves overall cognitive function. When it comes to hormonal brain fog, this phytonutrient may provide additional assistance—in one study, resveratrol was shown to improve processing speed and cognitive flexibility2 in postmenopausal women.*
