(NaturalNews) Perhaps the greatest threat to brain function is chronic stress. Challenged by fear and anxiety, the body will produce excessive amounts of cortisol, the "stress hormone", which eventually damages the brain's memory center. And, although cortisol is a necessary hormone for survival purposes, excessive amounts destroy our adrenals, immune system plus much more.

Eliminate brain fog - naturally! On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, a LIVE internet radio broadcast - Dr. Holly Lucille, a nationally recognized leader in naturopathic medicine will teach us how to improve thyroid and adrenal function; elevate our moods; increase our energy and improve mental clarity.

Prevent adrenal fatigue and elevate your mood - naturally

Obviously, it goes (almost) without saying, if you can reduce the stress in your life by changing your perspective or making changes in your lifestyle habits - do it. But, nutritionally speaking, you may want to consider boosting your intake of vitamin C to support healthy adrenal function. Remember, the adrenals produce stress hormones and without them - your ability to handle tough situations is diminished.

According to Dr. Lucille, "during stress, the adrenal glands stockpile this antioxidant to protect against free-radical damage. However, ongoing stress depletes this vital nutrient from the adrenal glands." By the way, Dr. Lucille recommends at least 250 to 500 milligrams (mg) per day of vitamin C for anyone concerned about the negative effects of stress and maintaining a clear mind.

Sharpen your mind with chocolate and essential fatty acids

Cocoa, the key ingredient in chocolate, is loaded with brain-boosting antioxidants called flavonoids. Just don't go and buy any (commercial) brands filled with excess simple sugars, poor quality fats and nasty chemical additives. Scientific research shows that small amounts of dark chocolate, consumed on a regular basis, can improve blood flow to the brain - which enhances cognitive and memory test scores.

Did you know that the human brain is composed of significant amounts of fat? If you want to avoid being "brain dead" - be sure to include lots of omega-3's in your diet. Naturally, especially these days, you want to be careful about the quality of fat you eat. If you're not comfortable eating fish - several times per week - then a good quality omega-3 supplement of about 500 - 1,000 mg per day could help improve brain function.
