Green Drinks

The most common substances used as drinks, or as additions to juice drinks are blue-green algae, wheatgrass, barley grass, oat grass, spirulina, chlorella, and dulse. In addition, one can add a number of other natural brain tonics, including astralagus, lecithin, beet juice powder, bee pollen, ginko and green tea extracts.

Because of the broad range of ingredients, these products offer a veritable smorgasbord of micronutrients, which are not generally present in most common foodstuffs. And, they are very rich in chlorophyll, which activates the enzymes that produce vitamins E, A, and K. (Interestingly, chlorophyll has almost the same molecular structure as hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the body.) Best of all, you city dwellers can grow your own grasses, in a small tray on your windowsill. These substances are extremely rich in trace minerals, in which many people with cognitive decline are deficient. These trace minerals are the catalysts that enable vitamins and enzymes to perform their various functions.

One can add supplemental value to your cognitive enhancement by mixing in the nine essential amino acids that can not be manufactured by the body, and must therefore be ingested as nutrients. These nine important amino acids are tryptophan, lysine, leucine, methionine, phenylalanine, valine, threonine, and isoleucine. I am sure you will recall that two of these amino acids, tryptophan and phenyalanine, are the primary 'building blocks' for the important neurotransmitters, serotonin and norepinephrine.

I suggest that you have a green juice drink first thing in the morning, as part of your wake-up routine. For most people, a green juice drink creates a pleasant feeling of stimulation, which is not like the roller coaster ride of caffeine stimulation, but an influx of stable energy.

I know that you probably do not have a supply of these substances, in you kitchen, yet. So, next time you pass by a juice bar, order a double shot of wheatgrass juice and feel what happens. You will be convinced.
