The health of the brain and heart largely determine the health of our entire body. When the heart and brain are well, the body and mind will thank you. In everyday life, your own choices can have a significant impact on your well-being. Healthy lifestyles help to cope with everyday challenges, and prevent e.g. signs of exhaustion and depression.
Eat yourself healthy
The health of the heart and brain is most affected by a varied diet that contains enough good-quality fat and fiber, regular exercise and avoiding excess weight, adequate sleep and enjoying life and avoiding excessive stress. Easy, right? It's always worth keeping in mind that it's often small everyday choices and even small changes can have significant benefits towards a healthier tomorrow. Nutrition has a significant effect on energy, mood and the ability to learn new things. One-sided food is a clear risk factor for many memory disorders: nutrient-poor food does not have enough of the necessary building materials for the brain, while a varied diet protects the brain and helps the heart transport oxygen to the brain. The brain enjoys unsaturated fatty acids, berries and vegetables. Vegetables and berries contain protective nutrients to support brain function. Foods containing good fats, such as avocados, fatty fish, nuts, seeds and almonds are the best brain foods, promoting brain, central nervous system and memory function. Good fats keep cell membranes in good condition. The unsaturated fats contained in avocados and olive oil promote the functioning of the cardiovascular system, e.g. by lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow, thus ensuring adequate oxygen supply to the brain. The antioxidants contained in walnuts, macadamia nuts and almonds, on the other hand, protect not only from memory disorders but also from cardiovascular diseases. Fatty salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which boost brain function and memory and are important building materials for the brain. In addition to protein, you should always choose high-quality sources of fat and fiber for your plate and try to eat as versatile as possible.
High-quality nutritional supplements to support brain and heart health
With brain and heart health in mind, you can take a few high-quality nutritional supplements to support a varied diet. In the Puhdas
+ product range, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B12 take care of brain and heart health. Omega-3 fatty acids
A healthy adult needs 2–3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids daily, which can be obtained by eating 150 g of fatty fish or alternatively by taking omega-3 fatty acids with food. Omega-3 fatty acid preparations have large quality differences: low-quality preparations do not provide enough of the necessary nutrients, so you should pay attention to the quality of the dietary supplement. High-quality omega-3 fatty acid is also bright in color. EPA and DHA contained in premium Omega-3 fatty acids maintain heart health, normal vision and brain function. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids maintain the normal functioning of the nervous system and immune defense. Puhdas
+ Premium Omega-3 is a pure and strong fish oil preparation: the product guarantees that you get a strong dose of EPA and DHA fatty acids in the purest possible form. In the Puhdas+ product range, you can also find Vegan Omega- 3
, which is a 100% vegan product. Pudas+ Omega-3 products have the Friend of the Sea certificate. Certification ensures environmentally friendly fishing, conservation of endangered fish, 100% traceability and overall responsibility. Vitamin B12
Vitamins of the B12 group are important vitamins in terms of endurance, vitality, memory and learning. In addition, vitamin B12 promotes the normal functioning of the immune system, psychological functions and the nervous system. Vitamin B12 as a dietary supplement is especially important for vegetarians and vegans, because vitamin B12 can only be obtained from products of the animal kingdom, such as meat, fish and dairy products and eggs. Puhdas
+ vitamin B12 spray 400 µg is a domestic and preservative-free vitamin B12 spray. The lingonberry juice and rowanberry juice made from Finnish, acidic berries contained in the product act as nature's own "preservatives".
