Do you feel like your thoughts are stuck in a never-ending cycle of fuzziness or your mind isn’t quite as sharp as it once was? Perhaps you find yourself grappling with Brain Fog these days more often.

You’re not alone.

In a recent survey*, over half of Brits confessed their memories have taken a nosedive, leaving them losing their train of thought up to 10 times a day and feeling mentally ‘foggy’.

Do you feel like your thoughts are stuck in a never-ending cycle of fuzziness or your mind isn’t quite as sharp as it once was?

The cumulative effects of stress, burnout, poor diet, and sleepless nights, even the menopause, can contribute towards sabotaging your mental mojo. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can take proactive steps to stay sharp.

Aidan Goggins, an award-winning pharmacist and nutritionist explains: ‘Research effectively shows the ‘mind wandering’ phenomenon. 

‘This is where the hyperstimulation and increased demands in our lives cause us to suffer more cognitive failures. This includes attention and memory lapses which often lead to negative effects on our feelings and behaviour.

‘Mind wandering is so common that it’s the fastest-growing cognitive science research area. Reducing time scrolling on social media platforms, spending time in nature, having a clear disconnect from the workplace, especially if working from home, and putting your phone in a different room to where you sleep all improve our environment to stop mind wandering.’

Additionally, many people are either unaware or underestimate the importance of good nutrition for maintaining their brain health and tackling things like mind wandering and brain fog.

Fish, for example, is a brain-boosting superstar food; the likes of mackerel, salmon, and sardines are packed with omega 3 fatty acids – the ultimate brain fuel. Ancient herbs and botanicals used in innovative ways are also equally important in supporting your cognitive world.

To help address this growing cognitive health trend, following extensive research and scientific scrutiny, the expert scientists and nutritionists at FutureYou Cambridge have released their first dedicated brain health supplement.

Brain Complex+ is a pioneering blend of high-quality ingredients that work together to optimise and support brain health and cognition, including mental performance and memory.

The key ingredients include Virtiva® Plus, an exclusive synergistic Ginkgo biloba extract and phosphatidylserine formulation which delivers a combined effect greater than the sum of the ingredients separate effects.

Ginkgo biloba is a well-known plant which has traditionally been used in China for centuries. It contains a variety of compounds that are beneficial for neurovascular health and maintaining cognitive function.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a fat molecule that forms part of every cell in the body and a natural building block of the brain – after all, our brain is almost 60% fat. Brain cells use PS to communicate and carry messages among them, building up memory, learning and processing functions. PS is found in many foods such as egg yolks and offal (such as liver), but as we move towards more plant-based diets, many of us might not be getting enough.

In addition to the PS included in Virtiva® Plus, the product also contains Sharp-PS®, a patented soy-derived PS that has been researched in cognitive performance, providing a boost of this essential brain nutrient.

Brain Complex+ also contains Bacopa monnieri (sometimes known as Brahmi), an ancient herb used in Indian medicine. It contains a mixture of several plant compounds to support brain health and wellbeing.

Both ginkgo and bacopa have been long used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine but now scientific research is validating the positive effects of these extracts in mental performance including focus, concentration, and alertness.

Finally, this advanced brain health supplement contains highly absorbable (bioavailable) B vitamins and zinc, which contribute to normal cognitive and nervous system function, as well as the protection of cells from oxidative stress – a major factor in brain health.

Melanie Green, 61, noticed that she was struggling to find the right words in her busy job, and so began taking Brain Complex+

This exciting new supplement certainly made a difference to Melanie Green. Aged 61, a former dancer and now a financial advisor, Melanie noticed marked improvements after taking Brain Complex+ for a few months.

‘I have a lot of responsibility with my work and am time poor. I find taking vitamins supports me psychologically – it creates a little wellbeing as far as I’m concerned.

‘I was under work and personal pressure and was finding, when I was speaking to people, I was searching for the right word all the time and the word kept eluding me – it was like a delay with my speech, a kind of word fog.

‘Long story short, I began to worry and I thought my work and life pressures were affecting me. In truth, I was concerned about my cognitive deterioration.

‘I read about Brain Complex+ and the science behind it so I thought I would try it as I was beginning to be concerned about getting older and my brain slowing down.

‘I didn’t expect immediate results, but it reassured me to think the ingredients could be working quietly in the background. And I expected that to be my journey with the supplement.

‘However, I’m really pleased to say, I’ve noticed that since taking it, I’ve stopped pausing trying to find the right words. Before I’d think, ‘Good gracious, what’s wrong with me?’ But I can say that now I no longer struggle to find the right words, which has been very reassuring for me.

‘I like to think I eat a healthy balanced diet, and try to keep fit, but I know I don’t manage to eat everything I need on a daily basis – it’s just impossible – so topping up on vital nutrients makes perfect sense to me.

‘It was a conscious decision to do something positive about my brain health – it was certainly worth investing in for me and if others have similar experiences, I would suggest they give it a try.’

Ray, a cryptic crossword puzzler agrees and says: ‘Commensurate with starting this supplement I found my cryptic crossword solving became easier and this has continued.’

And Sandra, aged 84, agrees: ‘I was getting forgetful although I had been taking ginkgo biloba for some years to combat this. When I saw that the Brain Complex+ supplement contained some extras, I decided to try it. I now do my daily crossword and sudoku more quickly and when I do forget things I usually remember them more quickly. So I think it’s helped.’

Dr Miriam Ferrer PhD, Head of Product Development at FutureYou Cambridge, concludes: ‘We have customers who regularly take our omega 3 supplements to support their brain health. However, we felt there was an opportunity to create a focussed formulation, to support individuals who were specifically concerned with brain and cognitive health.’

‘If mind wandering or brain fog resonates with you, or you’re simply interested in preserving your long-term brain health we want to make it easy for you to try our vegan-friendly brain supplement. Since we’re all different, I’d recommend trialling it for a few months to see if it works for you. We’re so confident in Brain Complex+ that to help you get started, we’re offering you the chance to try your first pack for just £5.’

Brain Complex+ contains pantothenic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 and zinc. Pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental performance. Vitamins B6 and B12 contribute to normal functioning of the nervous system. Zinc contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
