Boost Your Brain Power with Peptide Bioregulators

Our brains are utterly incredible – and that’s an understatement. The most powerful object in the known universe is in your head. It’s as mysterious as it is familiar, driving our thoughts and actions, both conscious and automatic. It’s one of the hardest organs to take care of, too, even before you consider mental health. The brain is just like any other part of your body: it can get worn out and tired. Because it’s essentially in charge of your whole body, a tired brain has a knock-on effect on your whole being. Even the fittest and healthiest among us can succumb to mental fatigue, and this can get worse with age. So how do you keep the brain running at peak performance throughout your life?

Be Generally Healthy

A healthy, powerful brain should be part of a healthy, powerful body. Staying in good general health is important for obvious reasons, but the benefits to the brain are often understated compared to the physical benefits. Exercise and diet play a key role in your brain’s health and potential output. Good blood flow and carbohydrates supply the brain with the fuel it needs to work at its best. A lack of water can impair memory and focus and cause headaches, so hydration should be a top priority. One of the most overlooked areas for a healthy, happy brain is sleep. Studies have shown that sleep-starved individuals can be a greater risk on the road than those driving under the influence of alcohol. Lack of sleep severely impacts brain function: memory, reaction time, concentration and problem solving. Modern life makes it easy to burn the candle at both ends, but sleep is too important to dismiss. A powerful brain needs its rest.

Boost with Peptide Bioregulators

Modern computers take advantage of overclocking: pushing hardware past its known limits to achieve more power than it was designed to do, bringing a whole new level of performance. So is it possible to overclock the brain with a pill, like in the movie Limitless? Not yet, and maybe that’s a good thing! But you can help hold off the effects of aging on the brain with peptides, boosting your brain’s ability to repair and regenerate. Peptides are naturally occurring chemicals made up of amino acids. Almost every process in your body is dictated by peptides, making them an essential nutrient. Part of the aging process involves the slowing of the bioregulators responsible for absorbing these peptides. This can impact your organ function and repair process. That can be hard to swallow when it comes to the health of your brain. Our Cerluten® CNS Peptide gives the central nervous system, including the brain, exactly what it needs to repair. So while it’s not exactly a function-boosting super pill, it provides a boost to those essential nutrients responsible for its condition.

Are “Smart Drugs” Ever Going to Exist?

It’s a tough one to call, especially without a solid context for what being smart means. Any future drugs might have the same stigma attached to them as steroids and performance-enhancing drugs do in athletics. They may not work in the desired way at all, because compared to every other organ and system in our bodies, the brain is fiendishly complex. The heart, as elegant and brilliant as it is, is a simple pump. Even our complex network of blood vessels can be interpreted simply as piping. Because they’re simple and serve a single purpose, we can develop drugs to control how they work. We could potentially enhance one specific capability of the brain, but the brain serves so many purposes that enhancing one area may rob another of function. Think of it in terms of a body builder that only strengthens their upper body and always skips leg day. For instance, a drug to enhance focus could impact memory or emotion. There could be trade-offs that render the brain exhausted. There’s a long way to go before we can say we have a brain-wide enhancement drug – but research continues.

Modern Opinions towards Aging

Old age is an inevitability we all must face. Depending on culture, old age is painted in several ways. To some, aging means feebleness, frailty, and being past your prime. To others, it’s a symbol of wisdom, a reason for respect. Sometimes it’s both. So how do people feel about aging today? Is age discrimination still a thing in 2016? And what does it mean to “grow old gracefully”?

How Do We Define Aging, and What Causes It?

The truth is, nobody really knows what triggers physical aging. Aging isn’t just a matter of time. Genetic and environmental factors have a big impact on how we physically age.

There’s so much more to aging than how long you’ve been alive for. It’s the accumulation of all the changes in a human body over time: physical, psychological, and social.

You might have heard people say something along the lines of “they’re sixty, but a young sixty” about a particular person, either because someone is young at heart or because they look younger than they are.

The rate of change is different for everyone. Long-term biological processes don’t have much regard for the way we structure our calendars. Mental health can remain unaffected while physical health deteriorates. Personal changes and losses can affect your integration into wider society. It’s a complex web of factors.

What we do know is that physical aging happens because our cells change as we get older. Senescence (the technical term for biological aging) is a complex process in advanced organisms like us humans. After decades of research and testing, we’re still no closer to discovering the triggers, but there is plenty of evidence supporting ways to counteract the effects of aging.

Attitudes towards Aging

Everyone has their own personal attitude towards aging. Some are anxious about becoming unable to do things they used to do. There are health concerns – and of course the looming prospect of death.

Death and the fear of death seem to be common themes at all ages when talking about aging, with the attitude to death changing from absolute fear to near-acceptance.

Attitudes about growing older tend to change with age. Strangely, it seems the older we get, the calmer we feel about dying. Younger people, especially when first realizing their own mortality, can feel some really strong negative emotions about death.

Some people take a more easy-going, “whatever will be, will be” attitude, as long as they have their health. Not wanting to become a burden to family and friends is a key trend too.

In the great conversation of age and the human condition, isolation` and loneliness tend to pop up less among the young. That feeling of being surrounded with family and friends and having people to rely on can sadly fade away as we get older.

Age Discrimination

Sometimes called ageism, the stereotyping and discrimination of people based on their age has played important roles culturally, societally, and politically.

It applies to all ages. Young people are subjected to prejudice and stereotypes just as the elderly can be. But when we’re talking about age discrimination, we’re usually referring to older members of society.

Attitudes to the elderly vary by culture and subculture, by status, and by personal values. It does feel, however, as though there has been a renaissance era of appreciation for older people, particularly in the West: terms like “silver fox” and “cougar” break the conceived notion that getting older means you’re no longer desirable or sexy. Aging and elderly celebrities have given a sense of empowerment in the media. Even advertising in the last decade has become more inclusive and age-representative.

But this kind of progress isn’t universal and there are still so many stereotypes about older people that usually center on how they look. We age and our bodies change; the sentiments on this topic range from light-hearted, self-deprecating jokes to body confidence and bullying.

That’s right – you’re never too old to be bullied.

Getting Old Gracefully

How is it achieved? Many believe it’s a state of mind: not allowing yourself to change because of how old you are. There’s the idea that plastic surgery and attempts to reverse the aging process are somewhat against the natural way, which is true to some extent.

There are less intrusive ways to fend off the effects of aging. Our extensive range of antiaging products are available to do just that – to give your body the best chance of staying in good shape for as long as possible.

For a healthy mind, staying physically active is just as important as being mentally active. Memory supplements can also help keep your mind energized and alert.

Remember: you’re only as old as you feel.
