I recently fell in love with Moon Juice, and have pretty much been addicted to their products since trying the first one. I’m currently using the Moon Juice Brain Dust, and put it in my smoothies/smoothie bowls every day. This Brain Dust contains Lion’s Main mushroom extract powder (along with several brain-supporting herbs), which is beneficial for cognitive support.
Coconut is also known to be helpful for cognitive support. Coconut contains medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that go through a more simple digestion process than other plant-based fats. When medium chain fatty acids are digested, ketones are produced, which can be instantly used by the brain for energy.
