Shop by Health Goal: Mind System
From the ayurvedic perspective, mental ability can be classified into three categories: learning (Dhi), retention (Dhriti) and recall (Smriti). The mind/body relationship is complex. Ayurveda defines three parts to this delicate balance: thoughts, the senses and the nervous system (Prana Vata), the emotions and the heart (Sadhaka Pitta) and cerebro-spinal fluids and the communication between the thoughts and the emotions (Tarpaka Kapha). Finally, there is the relationship between consciousness, the mind and the body. The master coordinator among them is Ojas -- the most highly refined product of digestion that supports mental ability and a wide range of vital functions within the body.
Powerful Nourishment for the Mind
The Mind Plus System strengthens and balances all the mind/body factors for improved mental energy and alertness. It provides powerful nutrition to the brain, helping to increase mental focus; enhances the ability to imbibe information and recall and apply it when needed; and improves mind/body coordination. Stress, pollution, poor nourishment and advancing age can take a toll on mental ability; so that often we use only a fraction of our full innate mental potential. With the Mind Plus System you can effectively combat these factors for enhanced mental potential and functioning.
