Nature has provided the amazing herbal remedies that can increase the power of your brain. The use of herbs is the oldest form of medical science in the world, and it is still used abundantly in naturopathic practices today.

Myriad of scientific studies concluded the efficacy of Bacopa Monnieri, Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, Wheatgrass and Barleygrass – the powerful combination of IntelliFood Maxx Brain Booster’s components - to boost brain power and cognitive function and nourishment for the body.

Bacopa Monnieri, also called Brahmi, is a creeper herb found along the periphery of marshes and ponds throughout India. This herb has been used as a traditional remedy for over 3000 years in India to enhance memory and learning in the Indian system of Ayurvedic medicine.

Research authority has shown that the Bacopa Monnieri rejuvenates and revitalizes damaged or worn-out brain cells, particularly in the brain center known as the “hippocampus” which is concerned with memory and learning. It facilitates memory acquisition, consolidation, retention as well as the recall of learned tasks. Hippocampus is a brain area located just above the ear and it is the area in the brain associated with memory formation.

Bacopa Monnieri contains bacosides, which are chemical compounds that can repair damaged neurons,thus improving nerve impulse transmission and stimulates nerves activity.

Bacopa Monnieri is also helpful in combating stress,improving reflexes and increasing mental capacity.

Ginkgo Biloba - This natural herb increases circulation throughout the body by thinning the blood, and thereby increases the supply of oxygen to the brain. It is also a powerful antioxidant,and has been shown to increase several elements of brain fitness, including better memory retrieval and clearer focus.

Ginkgo Biloba, is a unique species of tree with no close living relatives. The ginkgo is a living fossil, recognizably similar to fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated and was introduced early to human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food.

Ginkgo Biloba is one of the world’s oldest surviving trees. Its longevity is due to its resistance to disease and pollution, adaptability and unique biochemical properties.

Ginkgo Biloba is the tree of life. At the end of World War II on August 6, 1945 an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima by the Americans. Ginkgo trees were only the survivor and are still alive today.

Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) - is a nourishing food and a brain boost - revitalizing herb to the body, brain and nerves - it assists memory, concentration, intelligence,improves reflexes and energy levels, and is said to help balance the left and right hemispheres of the brain.

Gotu Kola is higher in the B-complex vitamin group than any other plant previously examined. This again may account for its effects on the brain. It is especially high in thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), and pyridoxin (B6). B complex is necessary in providing energy for the body, by converting carbohydrates into glucose, a usable form of sugar for the body to burn. The B complex is responsible for the normal functioning of the nervous system as well. A healthy nervous system allows for a better functioning and organized brain.

Gotu Kola also reduces anxiety in adults and children that enhances focus and concentration in logical memory, and learning.

People have reported that with using the herb regularly they have been able to correct high blood pressure and cholesterol. Many people have experienced relief from painful and crippling arthritis and rheumatism.

Numerous research projects in the western world studied this herb after the remarkable life of Professor Li Chung Yun, who died at the age of 256 years in 1933. He was born in 1677 and in 1933 the New York Times announced the death of this remarkable Oriental, whose life span had reached over two and half centuries. The Chinese Government officially recorded his age. The professor ate Gotu Kola daily. At 200 years of age he was still lecturing at a Chinese university and was said to look like a man of 50 years, he stood straight and had his own natural teeth and full head of hair.

In the Philippines,the leaves are either consumed raw in salads or as a tea for tonic and stimulant benefits to the body. The leaves have been employed medicinally inthe French West Indies and Brazil to cure uterine cancer, leprosy and elephantiasis. In the People’s Republic of China, Gotu Kola is used for fevers,common cold influenza, sore throat and liver ailments such as cirrhosis and jaundice.

Wheatgrass is the ultimate energizer for body and brain.

Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly oxygenated environment.

Oxygen is vital to body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body’s oxygen supply), and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.

Wheatgrass is well known as the super food of the history because of its complete nutritional profile from vitamins to minerals, from Chlorophyll to powerful live enzymes,from anti-oxidant to phytonutrients and most of all it is the most alkaline-based food, all this in the balance form.

Some of the superior qualities of wheatgrass include the following:
  • Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
  • Itis a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells,detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.
  • Restores alkalinity to the blood. The wheatgrass’ abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used torelieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.

Barleygrass was one of the first grains to be cultivated, as early as 7000 BC. The use of barley for food and medicinal purposes goes back to the distant past.Chlorophyll bursting barley grass is a green cereal grass that is an excellent nutritional source for both humans and animals. Young barley leaves contain all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and detoxifying compounds, proteins and enzymes that keep the human body healthy.

Barleygrass is recognized as the most nutritious of all plant foods, a total health food that boosts the proper functioning of organs and the immune system since it contains essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes plus chlorophyll, phytonutrients, and phytochemicals.

Barleygrass contains a substance called P4D1; it not only has a strong anti-inflammatory action, but has also been shown to actually repair the DNA in the body's cells. P4D1 aids in the prevention of carcinogenesis, aging, and cell death.

Barleygrass is the best source of the nutrients that the body needs for growth, repair and well-being.
