What’s Up with This BRAIN FOG??
If you are over the age of 35, you remember the days of old…the days when you had to memorize almost everything of importance. Your list of phone numbers was a mile long, birthdays and addresses were all put to memory IN YOUR BRAIN. With the introduction of smart phones and the entire world of AI, we no longer have to remember much of anything. We are no longer exercising and/or training the largest and most powerful muscle in our body, our brain. Thankfully, there are ways to re-train that noggin with the use of vitamin supplements, peptides and exercises.
Signs and Symptoms of Brain Fog
- Memory Loss
- Vision Problems
- Lack of Balance
- Forgetting Faces and/or Names
- Planning Issues
- Trouble Focusing
- Difficulty Completing Tasks
- Vision Problems
Of course, everyone can be moody from time to time and everyone forgets what they were saying sometimes, but true brain fog is more consistent and noticeable and will continue if not taken seriously. The very first thing anyone with a consistent brain fog should do is take inventory of his/her own daily living patterns and habits. How great is their diet? How are they sleeping? Are they moodier than usual, could it be a hormone imbalance? After taking note of all the above and fixing whatever patterns or habits that are broken; if you are still declining faster than you would like, this is known as cognitive impairment and the symptoms can range from mild to severe.
Cognitive impairment is when a person has trouble remembering, learning new things, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life.
What Are the Main Causes of Brain Fog?
- Hormone Imbalance
- Chronic Stress
- Poor Sleep Habits
- Poor Diet
Major shifts in estrogen for women who are pregnant or going through perimenopause or menopause can and will cause brain fog. Fortunately, a pregnant woman can typically rest assured she will return to her normal cognitive state once her hormones level out after baby arrives. Unfortunately, peri-menopausal women as well as menopausal women will most likely need a little help in defeating brain fog.

Beyond Our Products
Exercising our mind is just as important as exercising any other part of our body, scratch that, it’s actually MORE important. How in the world do you exercise your mind? I’m glad you asked! You can start by learning something new. Maybe you have always wanted to learn how to cook or play tennis? You can try Sudoku or crossword puzzles. You can even go old school and challenge yourself to memorize your credit card numbers or family and friend’s phone numbers again. We all made it through the big Y2K scare, but who knows, someday that memory MIGHT come in handy if no one has their smartphone or computer to help them out. You could be a hero! 😉
Let’s Sum It All Up:
Brain Fog is not fun and can make you feel like you are losing your mind at times. That feeling alone can be a bit depressing. As stated earlier, we live in a world without much need for a good memory anymore. It is up to us to keep it trained up and at it’s very best. Our doctors can look at your bloodwork and tell right away what could possibly be causing your brain fog and with their expertise, they can get you headed down the right path towards, “top of mind awareness.” again.
Sleep patterns are the largest component of brain fog, without sleep, our body’s main hard drive (the brain) can’t function properly…it is basically running on fumes. Our peptides that contribute to better sleep patterns are Sermorelin and CJC-1295. Aside from sleep deprivation, brain fog can also be caused by a hormone imbalance.
It is important to always stay on top of your hormone levels, any imbalance can cause a mountain of issues, but as we age, testosterone is proving to be the one we all miss the most. HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) is a great way to get your levels back in check. Not only will you feel better about your brain fog, but you’ll also feel better about life. If you’d rather not mess with any of the above at first, that’s ok, we will always recommend a weekly dose of our Meyers Cocktail, it is simply made up of the best stuff on Earth.
