When is the last time you took a mental health day? You know, a day just for you... a day where you completely disconnected... a day where you rested from the rigors and stress of your daily job to actually fill your own cup?
Well, if it's been a hot minute, then we encourage you to join us today, #MentalHealthDay, because the truth is, restoring our minds (and our bodies) is critical to maintaining our health and homeostasis.
That's why when formulating our blends, we worked with doctors and nutritionists to include ingredients that actively work to help support your brain and body on the daily. Get to know these 6 Vejo blends (and their brain-boosting ingredients) that can help support your mental health:
Banana Almond: Almonds contain protein, healthy fat, zinc, and vitamins B6 and E which can help to preserve memory, boost alertness, and prevent cognitive decline.
Tart Berry: Marionberries may improve brain health and aid in preventing memory loss caused by aging; the unique combination of antioxidants in this berry blend may positively alter how our brain neurons communicate. Anthocyanin rich berries are also nitric oxide protective and may increase circulation to task-related areas in the brain.
Clean Greens: Dark leafy greens, like spinach, are abundant sources of magnesium, a mineral that increases GABA, which encourages relaxation.
Matcha Latte: The combo of L-Theanine and caffeine work together to increase alertness, sustain attention, improve mood and reaction time.
Tropical: The lining of the digestive tract contains a majority of your body’s serotonin receptors, a neurotransmitter dubbed the "feel-good hormone". Fiber from bananas can help support a healthy gut microbiota contributing to mood and cognition.
- Cold Brew Coffee: Caffeine influences neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine that may contribute to increased focus, improved mental alertness, and reduced risk of cognitive decline.
Inspired to be a little kinder to your mind? It's time to schedule a day off and fill your own cup with Vejo! Cheers to happier, healthier, and more balanced lives for us all.
