The only way to move forward is to embrace change, which is exactly what we are doing here at Cerebra Nootropics! After lots of thought and careful consideration, we have decided to once again expand our product line.
This time, we will be adding vitamins that we believe should be a part of any supplement stack. Since our motive is to create a convenient one-stop supplement shop to help you along your path to longevity, it was about time we added these helpful vitamins to our shop.
Let’s take a closer look at which products will be a part of this shop expansion and why you may want to start incorporating them into your day-to-day strive for longevity!
What are vitamins?
First and foremost, what are vitamins? Essentially, vitamins are a class of organic molecules that are essential for micro-nutrient, which an organism needs in small quantities for the functioning of its metabolism.
This is an essential category of nutrients we all need to survive and thrive. Let’s look at the specific vitamins we will be stocking in the near future and their importance.
Vitamin C – What is it and why do we need it?
One of the most well-known vitamins of them all! Vitamin C is found in various foods and is also sold as a supplement. This essential nutrient is heavily involved in the repair of tissue and the enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters. The functions of this vitamin in the brain include but are not limited to acting as a co-factor for dopamine beta-hydroxylase in the conversion of dopamine to the catecholamine and acetylcholine released from synaptic vesicles.
Individuals who get little or no vitamin C (below 10mcg daily) for many weeks can suffer from scurvy, which is basically a name/term for vitamin C deficiency. This can cause serious fatigue, inflammation in the body/brain, skin conditions, joint pain, slow wound recovery, unhealthy hair/nails, and so much more. Surprisingly, most people have a Vitamin C deficiency, however, only 1 in 20 people are seriously affected by it. The rest of those who have the deficiency have symptoms that go unnoticed until they create serious health issues.
Studies show us that consuming additional Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, can increase your blood antioxidant levels by up to 30%! This massive increase in blood antioxidant levels helps the body to naturally defend against inflammation. This could help in reducing the risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease. An all-around vital vitamin!
Vitamin B12 – What is it and why do we need it?
Vitamin B12 has always been extremely important, however, the important role it plays in health is becoming more common knowledge as many individuals around the globe move towards a vegan or plant-based lifestyle.
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a vitamin involved in metabolism and is one of the 8 members of the B vitamin family. This B vitamin is extremely essential for the working of certain enzymes in the body and, although not chemically related, are generally found together in the same foods. When you find one, you will likely find another! Whether you eat a plant or meat-based diet, it can be tricky getting in all of your Vitamin B12 each day. This is where supplementation comes in handy!
Not getting enough B12 in your diet can lead to anaemia, which means your body does not have enough red blood cells to do the job, which can lead to feeling extremely weak and tired. A Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause serious damage to your nerves and can affect memory, thinking, and other vital brain functions. Getting enough B12 will change your energy levels and mental clarity for the better!
Vitamin D – What is it and why do we need it?
This vitamin is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, phosphate, magnesium, and many other biological needs. Any group of vitamins found in liver and fish oils, such as Vitamin D, is essential for the absorption of calcium and the prevention of rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.
Your body needs to get enough Vitamin D to function well, however, getting too much Vitamin D also isn’t the best for health. This Vitamin helps with strengthening bones/teeth and, according to research, could help in preventing some cancers. Additionally, it helps keep your muscles and muscle tissue healthy! Not to mention that it plays a huge role in regulating brain health. It can help aid the development of the brain and nervous system and help postpone the decline of general health, increasing longevity.
When you consistently get enough Vitamin D, you will notice an array of positive changes. Your skin, nails, and hair will start to grow and glow! You will have more energy and recovery from injuries will speed up. You will look, feel, and perform better while increasing longevity!
Vitamins are all-around a must in order to not only survive but also thrive! Making sure you get these vitamins into your body daily will increase your health as a whole, helping you achieve longevity. At the end of the day, Cerebra’s main goal is to help you get to where you need to be in regards to your health in order to live the longest, healthiest, and happiest life you possibly can.
We are so excited to add these vitamins to our shop. Keep your eyes peeled in the upcoming weeks for this amazing product drop and increase both your supplement stack and longevity!
