Healthy Smoothie Recipes: Improve Memory and Focus

Are you looking for healthy smoothie recipes to help you improve clarity, memory, and focus? Read on!

Healthy Smoothie Recipes to Improve Brain Focus

If you want to improve brain focus, look for healthy smoothie recipes that blend fresh fruits, dark leafy greens, supplements, and a selection of all-natural extracts. Improve your focus while also transforming your body from the inside out. Best of all — these smoothies taste great!

Healthy Smoothie Recipes Incorporate Healthy Foods

It’s common for supposedly healthy smoothie recipes to be filled with far too much fruit and no leafy greens. It’s also common for people to load them with artificial sweeteners, Stevia extract, and processed sugars.

Leafy greens are packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and high-quality amino acids. They’re a critical part of healthy smoothie recipes! Leafy greens include spinach, kale, microgreens, romaine, Swiss chard, collard greens, cabbage, watercress, romaine lettuce, bok choy, and endive.

Dark fruits are important too. For one thing, they’re antioxidants. For another, the purple pigment in dark fruits contains flavonoids, including resveratrol, which can help decrease blood pressure. Resveratrol helps relax the arterial walls, decreases the pressure in the arteries, and promotes better circulation. Dark fruits also contain polyphenols, which can reduce the inflammatory response in the body.

Key Extracts and Supplements

Extracts and supplements are herbs, vitamins, minerals, and other healthy substances you can add to a smoothie. Healthy smoothie recipes that support brain focus incorporate the following supplements, all of which specifically support nootropic brain health and focus.

Polygala tenuifolia (Yuan Zhi, Seneca, Chinese Senega)

Polygala is a powerful nootropic, an adaptogen, and an antioxidant. It’s valued in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its ability to protect the brain. It’s commonly used to rejuvenate the mind, support meditation, and increase clarity of thought. Adherents believe that it improves creative thinking, enhances dreaming, and enhances manifested ideas. The Chinese name Yuan Zhi translates to “high aspirations.”

Research shows that Polygala extract can go beyond simply being neuroprotective and can promote neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation, pushing the plant into a special category of nootropics that supports new brain cell growth. Polygala makes an excellent addition to healthy smoothie recipes that support brain health. Read the Polygala FAQ.

Paeonia lactiflora (White Peony Root, Chinese Peony)

Like Polygala, Paeonia is a nootropic, an adaptogen, and an antioxidant, and it’s believed to increase energy, intelligence, and awareness. It’s commonly used to rejuvenate the mind, support meditation, and increase clarity of thought. It’s also frequently used to help treat cognitive deficits and improve learning and memory. Recent studies have looked at its and cognitive-enhancing properties. Paeonia makes an excellent addition to healthy smoothie recipes that support brain health. Read the Paeonia FAQ.

Phyllanthus niruri (Chanca Piedra)

Sourced in the Amazon region of Peru, Phyllanthus has 100+ bioactive compounds. It’s a powerful antioxidant, it’s a nootropic, and it’s the world’s best synergistic adaptogen. We believe no plant in the world offers more health benefits, and its neuroprotective qualities support memory and focus. Read the Phyllanthus FAQ.

Additional Supplements

Healthy smoothie recipes that support brain health and memory often include the following supplements:

Omega Oil: Research suggests omega-3 fatty acids may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and may have a positive effect on gradual memory loss linked to aging.

Phosphatidylserine: Important chemical that improves mental function. It’s also what the brain uses to incorporate omega-3s.

Flaxseed: Believed to fight heart disease, diabetes, and breast cancer. It contains Omega-3s (which support memory), lignans (antioxidants), and fiber.

Protein Powder: Easy and convenient source of complete, high-quality protein.

Tip: Freeze Your Fruits

Want your brain focus smoothies to be thicker and less liquid-like? Many healthy smoothie recipes include frozen fruit! Freeze your favorite dark fruits like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and elderberries. And if you choose to include banana, you can freeze it too!

You can also freeze your leafy greens in a freezer-safe bag. Just be sure to put your frozen greens into the blender (don’t defrost them before use).
