Brain health is something that should always be front and center for everyone, regardless of age.
However it's often thought about only as older family members start to experience cognitive issues or when a neurological disease is diagnosed. But wouldn't you love to prevent cognitive decline and protect your brain health before the effects of aging take place? You can and it starts with your endocannabinoid system or ECS.
Healthy Brain, Healthy ECS
Have you ever heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you haven’t, you’re not alone. The system was first discovered while scientists were researching the cannabis plant. (Don’t worry, this has nothing to do with marijuana.) The results found that the endocannabinoid system has a powerful effect on your life balance or homeostasis. You know the feeling – like you could handle anything and still have enough energy to power through your day.
Your brain – along with your spine – is powered by your central nervous system which, in turn, is guided by your ECS and its receptors found in cannabinoid receptor 1 [CB1]. These receptors are the lock in the ECS lock and key function with the messages being sent by your brain acting as the keys.

Bacopa and huperzine all work in concert to help protect your brain health, enhance memory and battle oxidative stress. Let’s look at each one.
Ancient Ayurvedic practitioners have used bacopa (or brahmi) for years and it's been proven beneficial in the treatment of things like ADHD, Alzheimer’s and as a general stress buster.
In fact, a recent study in Australia revealed that the control group given bacopa showed a higher instance of cognitive memory recovery than the placebo group.
