Superfoods can also influence the mind in a very positive manner. Herbs and superfoods have been used for these purposes for thousands of years. These are safe herbs, superfoods and extracts used by millions of people around the world. As tonics and superfoods, they can, by definition, be used for as long as you like.
The health of your brain is fundamental to your well-being. Natural ingredients and their derivatives like extracts and nutraceuticals, can help maintain excellent circulation to your brain, can reduce oxidation caused by free radicals, can protect the brain proactively and can help you keep a sharp mind.
The brain and the mind are not quite the same thing. But they are of course interdependent. Nurturing and protecting your brain is an avenue you should pursue with one product or a set of products. Nurturing your mind is another avenue that has been of great interest to humans since prehistoric times, and even more so in our current time when so many interesting options are becoming available. Pursue both avenues and build yourself a brain and mind program, hopefully one that goes along with a performance enhancing Three Treasures longevity program.
Though the brain has a tight protection from toxins, its seems to like many of the natural herbal molecules found in herbs and superfoods. Many are capable of passing through the brain-blood barrier, a microscopic, branched capillary network that forms a barrier to the brain. These capillaries are tightly packed together to form this barrier. Oxygen is filtered through by a very quick process known as passive diffusion. Most nutrients require a transport system, including glucose, the brains primary food.
We will discuss your brain in this section. Mind support is discussed in its own section. Here are some of the great natural products for your mind.
General Brain Health
Here are some of the great natural products for your whole brain.
Himalayan Rhodiola for the Brain
Diamond Mind contains herbs that have been used for centuries in Asia to nurture the brain, including Himalayan Rhodiola sacra, Gingko biloba (standardized in this product), and Polygonatum sibericum, known as “the brain’s own food” in Asia. Diamond Mind increases brain blood flow and oxygenation. The adaptogenic nature of these herbs is brain-supportive. It is believed that restoring oxidative balance may be one of the underlying mechanisms by which medicinal herbs can protect against ageing and cognitive decline. The herbs in Diamond Mind have high antioxidant capacity, can penetrate the blood-brain barrier to reach the brain, and protect the brain from free radicals.

Ashitaba Products for the Brain
Lion’s Mane Products for the Brain
You can actively and safely protect our brain from free radical damage and from blood circulation deficiency. Here are some of the herbs, adaptogenic formulations and nutraceuticals that help “precondition” the brain to withstand free radical bursts and blood circulation deficiency. A number of Chinese herbs have significant neuroprotective actions as antioxidants, dopamine transporter inhibitors, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, free radical scavengers, chelators of harmful metal ions, modulators of cell survival genes and signaling, and improving brain blood circulation. Researchers are looking very closely at brain blood circulation as a marker of an aging brain. Maintaining healthy brain circulation is a key to loner life and a strong mind. The average total blood flow to the brain in the healthy young people is around 740 milliliters per minute. In the seniors in relatively good health, the rate is around 550 ml per minute. It can get much worse. There are multiple protective mechanisms in the beneficial effects of tonic herbs and superfoods. As we age, we need increased brain protective support from supplements. In the real world, we need several herbs and superfoods, with different mechanisms, in order to protect the most complex organ in the world, our human brain.
