  • Understanding your Brain

Our brain only takes up a small part of our body, but it is so powerful and responsible for the actions of all our bodily functions.

With 85 billion neural cells and 150 trillion synapses that transfer information at 265.909 miles per hour, the brain is a finely tuned, fast acting machine that helps keep your body working: breathing, circulating blood, transporting nutrients and waste. 

It never stops working, not even when you’re sleeping. It’s so busy that even though your brain only takes up 2% of your body by size, it uses a full 20% of your available energy! 

What are you feeding your body? Is it good for your migraine brain?

We don’toften think about how hard our brains work, but we should. For those who suffer from migraines, their brains are even more complex and work harder(and require more care and attention) than the regular brain. We need to make sure we are meeting the energy needs of our brain by keeping electrolytes in homeostasis. This helps our brain and body work in harmony and will lessen your migraines. 

Why Study the Brain?

Understanding the brain is one of the great remaining frontiers of modern medicine.  

Complex and vitally important to our survival, providing your brain with nutrients. Scientists are still studying the complexities of migraines.  

 

How is the brain studied? 

Electrophysiology 

By attaching electrodes to the brain, we can track the brain’s electrical activity from surface level to a couple of inches deep. Although not effective in tracking migraines themselves, it does track the brain’s voltage differences with migraineurs in comparison to non-migraineurs. Regardless, it is helpful for understanding the brain and how it reacts to different stimuli. 

Analyzing the Blood

  • Blood tests are used to measure the amount of glucose and electrolytes in the bloodstream. We can then speculate how these affect the blood flow to the brain. 

Imaging 

  • X-RAYs provide a small snapshot of the generic brain structure. X-RAYs cannot see soft tissue, but they can be very useful in seeing physical injuries. 

CT Scan  

  • CT Scans are a combination of x-rays that provide a clearer a better view of the brain. Iodine dye is typically used for CT Scans to enhance the view of soft tissues via the blood vessels within. 

MRI 

  • MRIs can provide a real-time look of the state of the brain, including soft tissue, but no insight into how the brain functions. 

fMRI 

  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an addition to MRI. It captures how the brain functions while the person is given tasks while in the MRI machine. 

DNA  

  • We gain a better understanding of the brain’s likelihood of developing different conditions.  

 

As scientists strive to understand the many mysteries of the brain, our research scientist, Dr. Angela Stanton, believes that migraines are linked to imbalanced electrolytes. That is why we offer pure, 3rd party tested, safe and effective supplements that we take ourselves.  

Our brain never stops working.

Even when we are asleep, our brain is sending neural signals to all parts of our body. It is telling our respiratory system to keep breathing and our circulatory to keep pumping blood through our body. Our circulatory system is actually in charge of transporting all the nutrients, metabolic wastes, water and salts through our system.

When we are awake, our brain is responsible for everything from waking us up and moving us around to getting us out of harm’s way. All these connections are subconsciously telling our body to reach out our hand to reply to that email, or telling us to munch on our food. It is fascinating how our brain is in charge of commanding every part of our body and we don’t even think about it. Our thinking signals occur at 265.909 miles per hour!
