Brain

The brain, which is located in the head, is the part of the central nervous system. The brain is a complex organ; the human brain is made up of many tens of billions of nerve cells, each of which is connected to a large number of other nerve cells. It is probably the most complex structure in the universe. The brain controls and coordinates sensory systems, movement, behaviour and homeostatic bodily functions such as breathing, blood pressure and body temperature. The brain is the source of movement, memory and (for higher types) cognition (awareness) and emotion.

Part of the nervous system

 

The term encephalon is also often used to indicate the brain. Together with the nerves in the body and the spinal cord, they get called the nervous system. In general, the brain can be divided into the small brain, the brainstem and the large brain. It is estimated that the brain consists of about one hundred billion nerve cells (neurons). The brain is constantly processing the information that comes in through the senses.

 

Supplements and vitamins

 

There are several dietary supplements in this category that can support the normal functioning of the brain, such as omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid, coenzyme Q10, Alpha-Lipoic acid, L-Carnitine and Resveratol. Vitamins are also essential for proper physiological functioning of the brain. The water-soluble vitamins B and C work in the aqueous areas of the brain and the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K are active in the fatty areas of the brain. Vitamins also have a beneficial antioxidant effect.
