Quincy Bioscience Promotes National Nutrition Month

Makers of Prevagen, Best-Selling Memory Supplement, Recognize the Vital Role of Nutrition for Healthy Brain Function This March

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - Quincy Bioscience, creators of Prevagen® best-selling memory supplement, supports National Nutrition Month. The Wisconsin-based biotech company believes that a well-supported brain, that of proper nutrition and supplementation, will lead to a healthier and more productive life.

Quincy Bioscience underscores the fact that the human brain controls all cognitive areas, such as memory, thinking, and focus. When these functions are strongly maintained, the implications on daily routines are tremendous. Unfortunately, the normal process of aging can negatively affect brain performance, but can be lessened with the help of a balanced diet and daily supplementation.

Research suggests that a healthy diet can help keep major organs functioning at a high level. A diet consisting of the right blend of proteins and complex carbohydrates has proven to be the most beneficial. The best regimen to support healthy brain function is one rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can be found in cold water fish, fish oil and flax oil. Those who lack a balanced diet are several times more likely to experience age-related mild memory problems.

Water is another key component to having balanced nourishment -- drinking eight to twelve eight-ounce glasses per day is the suggested guideline to follow. Some benefits of drinking enough water include regulating body temperatures, helping in digestion, healthier-looking skin, and more.

Lastly, vegetables contribute to the essential nutrients needed for healthy brain function. Studies have found that to retain the health benefits associated with eating cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, cabbage and kale), the real thing must be consumed. This is important because the phytochemical inside vegetables is the important missing nutrient that the brain needs.

Each week, the writers at Quincy Bioscience post a new article to the Prevagen sponsored the Memory Improvement Blog that covers topics including nutrition and wellness, memory-making ideas, and brain fitness tips. The Memory Improvement Blog can be found on the Prevagen website at http://info.prevagen.com/blog.
