Pukka has introduced its new organic Brainwave capsules, created specifically to improve cognitive function and support brain health.
The Brainwave formulation includes:
- turmeric, which studies have found may have several protective effects for the brain, including the ability to bind to heavy metals in the brain to remove them.
- brahmi and gotu kola to enhance circulation to the brain, favouring memory, learning and concentration as well as having a relaxing effect and helping to lift mood.
- rosemary and holy basil – sources of antioxidants which may help to protect against free radical damage that can alter brain functioning and improve learning and memory.
- green tea catechins, which have been found to have protective effects for the brain, potentially helping to delay decline in brain function.
The herbal supplement was formulated by herbalist and Ayurvedic practitioner Sebastian Pole, who comments: “The herbs in this formula have been chosen for their ability to boost circulation to the brain, improve memory and mental clarity, lift ‘brain fog’ and provide protective antioxidant activity. Taking just one to two capsules a day can have quick-acting benefits for brain function, memory and focus, as well as providing long-term protection against future changes.”
