3 Steps to Increase Attention

In this this fast paced world we are being bombarded with so many things at once. We start one thing, move on to a second and third and forget to go back and finish the first thing we started.

Our ability to stay focused is put to the test when we have so much to do. I know many of you moms out there are just like me, you have a list of things you have to do and the best of intentions to accomplish them. You get started only to get interrupted by one of your children, a phone call, a knock on the door, then, you either forget about it or lose motivation.

Students in school are challenged in the area of attention as they sit in their classrooms for a long period of time listening to someone lecture. They may start off focused, however, towards the end of class they start to lose it and all they hear is blah, blah, blah and then their minds start to wonder.

If you need help increasing your attention and memory, here are 3 steps that will help you achieve this in a natural way through diet and key supplements.

Step 1: Commence your day with a glass of water before you have breakfast.

Our brain is made up of 70 percent water, so starting of your day with a glass

of water to hydrate your brain is important.

Think about it, while we sleep through the night, we do not drink anything,

Our brain is in need of hydration and glass of water first thing in the morning

will do the trick. A dehydrated brain will affect your attention, cognition and how

well you function through out the day.

Step 2: Remove refined sugars, processed foods, trans fat, msg, artificial flavors

high fructose corn syrup, dyes and preservatives from your diet.

These ingredients alter your brain function, your attention and mental clarity.

Removing these ingredients from your diet will help your body and brain

become healthier allowing them both to function in a positive way.

Step 3: Take key supplements to help with attention and cognition.

Our body needs specific key supplements to increase brain function.

A. A Multi Vitamin with Vitamin Bs will help provide the body with the

necessary vitamins and minerals. Vitamin Bs help increase energy

levels in cellular function.

B. Omega 3‘s - Taking a high quality fish oil will help increase concentration and

reduce inflammation in the body.

C. Ashwagandha, Choline, Tyrosine and Alpha Lipoic Acid are key ingredients to help with

brain function, focus and cognition.

Ashwagandha - Is beneficial in reducing stress and improving focus and memory

Choline - Is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which helps with memory and


Tyrosine - Is an amino acid important for the formation of the

neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine and

serotonin which are responsible for regulating mood and behavior.

Taking L-tyrosine helps to enhance mental alertness.

Alpha Lipoic Acid - Is a powerful antioxidant that crosses the blood brain

barrier, protecting the cells from oxidation and free radical

damage to the neurological system, decreasing

inflammation. It also helps the body detoxify from heavy

metals promoting healthy brain function.
