Taking 2 Krill capsules a day (or as advised by any healthcare professional) will help support your long term brain, heart and eye health. You should take Krill on a full stomach with a glass of water.
Supplements aren't short term answers, though, and aren't a replacement for a healthy, balanced approach to life.
The other things we can all do to boost our brain and heart health include:
Get a good night's sleep - Sleep is arguably the most powerful tool in maintaining physical and mental health. Getting the right amount of sleep helps complete the full cycle of nocturnal processes that help your body and brain function at their best when you're awake. Between seven and nine hours is the recommended amount of sleep required by an adult for the mind and body to fully rest and function at its best. Resist the box set and stop the scrolling. Tomorrow, you'll be pleased you did.
Keep ourselves well hydrated - water plays a huge role in brain health and function. If we don't drink enough water, it can affect our concentration, memory, and learning ability. Even the slightest amount of dehydration can have an impact on all those things and our mood. Good things to drink include water and unsweetened herbal or green tea. Both caffeine and alcohol are dehydrating and can affect our sleep patterns. About two litres of water a day is a good target to aim for.
Get stress under control - Our levels of hormones such as cortisol remain consistently high when we're feeling stressed. These heightened levels of hormones produced as part of our flight or fight response contribute to mood swings and anxiety, poor concentration and memory problems. No wonder we feel less than positive, and it's not great for our brain health either.
Get active - physical activity is just as crucial for our brain health as it is for the rest of our physical and mental health. It doesn't have to be strenuous to be good for you. The Ancient Greeks made the connection between walking and better thinking. Researchers have proved that outdoor activity increases our vitality, enthusiasm, pleasure and self-esteem. It also helps to lower tension, fatigue and depression. So if you can fit nothing else in, get a walk outside and feel the benefits.
Give ourselves a mental workout – whether you're into crosswords, word searches or use a specific brain training programme, it's all good stimulus for your brain. But did you know that craft hobbies such as woodwork and sewing also work wonders for your brain? And writing yourself a list or note, rather than tapping it into a device, means there's a better chance that you'll remember what you've written.
Practice meditation, tai chi or yoga - all of these have been shown to provide significant mind-body benefits. Combine them with any of the other suggestions, and you're beginning to have a real brain health routine, not to mention the other physical and mental benefits.
