Brain Fog Is Much More Common Than You Might Think
Hearing the term "brain fog", one would probably assume that it stems from one's forgetfulness or playful explanation of why you can't remember things or serve as the reason why many of us have stood in a room, having a blank stare, not remembering why we came into the room in the first place.
If you have ever had those bouts of feeling like you lacked mental clarity, couldn't focus your attention on a task at hand, lacking concentration, or simply a general sense of just feeling not completely dialed into your own life, you could probably be classified as having a case of “Brain fog”.
Now with brain fog, most symptoms are "normal" when done with medical tests per se, but it is one of those conditions where people have many of the uncomfortable symptoms mentioned earlier yet the medical field can't label it. Just imagine if you are having trouble thinking of words on the tip of your tongue, feeling as if you're performing tasks in a haze, or even taking longer to do certain tasks are not, and then hearing the doctor tell you that nothing is wrong with you. What's up with that?
We should note that using the term brain fog doesn't mean the same thing as brain impairment or dementia, and there are no studies that says feeling of brain fog lead to cognitive diseases. But there are other reasons you may be feeling that way, and it has to do more with foods than it does aging.
Children Need Probiotics For Better Gut Health
Do kids need probiotics? Is it important for children to take probiotic supplements or eat probiotic foods? How about kombucha? Should kids be drinking kombucha or other fermented drinks? This is definitely one of the top 5 questions I receive when a parent wants to know whether it's important for their son or daughter to take probiotics or drink Jared's Kombucha or Jared's Kefir Soda. And in 90% of the situations, my response is always the same... a definite "yes".
It's important for me to throw a couple of caveats in there before I give a resounding "yes" (every family is different in terms of what they choose to eat and how they provide for their children), but from an overall perspective, a strong healthy gut is vitally important to a child during it's growing years, and probiotics and fermented foods can assist in that.
The First Step To Better Health
We all should understand that it seems to be a lack of easy tips for healthy living. I love to write about something food, fitness, health, or wellness related, but I also enjoy writing about how people can make new and exciting changes in their lives. So, it probably comes as no surprise if I was to say that I understand that most feel overwhelmed when it comes to making changes to a new fitness or health program. That can be a bit daunting, right?
