BrainStrong Review and Giveaway

First of all, let me tell you a little bit about the BrainStrong products that are offered.  Please note that all this information was sent to me and are not my own words, I just feel that it is important to know all aspects of this product to understand it.

  • BrainStrong Adult: Contains 900 mg of life'sDHA, the only source of DHA clinically shown to improve memory in adults over 55, plus L-theanine and green tea extract to naturally support mental sharpness and energy.  ($29.99 month's supply)
  • BrainStrong Toddler: The first DHA supplement for toddlers made in a powder form so it can be mixed into such toddler favorites as milk, yogurt, pudding, oatmeal, mashed potatoes or macaroni cheese.  Contains 100 mg of DHA omega-3. ($16.99 month's supply)
  • BrainStrong Kids: Great-tasting gummy supplement containing 100 mg of DHA (more DHA than any other over-the-counter kids supplement) plus other vitamins to help keep your child's brain functioning at its best. ($12.99 month's supply)
  • BrainStrong Prenatal: Prenatal multivitamin and supplement.  Contains the most omega-3 DHA (350 mg) and folic acid (800 mcg) available without a prescription. ($19.99 month's supply).
What are the health benefits: DHA is one of the good fats found throughout the body.  It's a structural fat that goes straight to the tissues such as those in the brain, to keep them functioning to the best of their ability.  Just as calcium is essential for building strong bones, DHA ensures that the cells in the brain, retina, heart and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly from infancy through adulthood.
Here is the great thing about this!  It is all vegetarian also!  So anyone with a vegetarian family can also use this product and not feel upset about using it.  When I gave this to my son, it was very easy to get him to take the whole amount needed.  I gave it to him in a cup of milk and he didn't even seem to notice it was there.  I know there is a lot of things that are hard to give him because, well, he is a toddler and likes everything the way it is already.  The instructions tell you to give one packet a day and each toddler formula comes in pre-packaged servings with 30 packages included in a box.  The pre-packaged servings make it much easier because you are not sitting there trying to measure everything out and making it even more obvious to your toddler that you are messing with their milk or food.  You can also now pick up BrainStrong at your local drug, food and mass retailers nationwide, including CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens and Wal-Mart making this a product to easily get your hands on!

  1. I learned "Between birth and five years of age, the human brain increases approximately 3.5 times in mass." Although I probably learned this in my college biology class but it sure didn't stick! LOL
