Could ‘Brain Shake’ Speed Path to Recovery from Concussion?

A new product was introduced today that holds great promise for maintaining and improving the health of the brain.

What separates Peak Health’s Bran Shake product from anything else on the market is that it is comprehensive and the foundation of the product is science.

Its not cheap. But for a product that holds so much promise, it may be worth considering for those suffering the cumulative effects of concussion, or a single concussion.

“The world’s leading researchers in nutrition have identified specific nutrients that are important for promoting brain health,” said Dr. Stacey Bell, the company’s team leader in the research area and formerly on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School. “Yet, no one has ever combined these nutrients into a complete meal.  This is what the Brain Shake has – everything your brain needs and nothing it does not.”

The Brain Shake, which can be purchased at https://peakhealth.shop/, or www.thebrainshake.com, contains 119 nutrients (Chocolate) that have been shown in scientific studies to improve memory, cognition, focus, performance, and sharpness and to protect the brain as we age.

One of the foremost authorities on nutrition and the brain also weighed in.

“This is the first comprehensive food or drink being brought to market that I have seen intended to improve the performance of the brain, as well as protect our brain as we age,” said Dr. Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as the leading authority on the role of nutrition and the brain with more than 150 papers published on that topic.

In a press release, the company noted that “The Brain Shake™ is a complete meal, containing an excellent source of protein, 25 vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3s. It also contains Peak Health’s proprietary BrainCare™ a proprietary blend of nutrients (https://peakhealth.shop/pages/health) that target memory, focus, cognition, performance and long-term brain health.  The Brain Shake has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It is also GMO-free, gluten-free, and contains no added sugar.

“Peak Health believes in supporting independent nutritional research and is currently funding four major studies with leading research universities concerning the importance of nutrient-rich foods and brain health, satiety, obesity/diet, and children development.”

Dr. Bell added: “We built the Brain ShakeTM based on the most accepted, peer-reviewed research studies on brain health and nutrition. To continue to expand our understanding, we are launching a major clinical study with a world-renowned research university to further demonstrate the effect the Brain Shake has on brain health.”
