Brain fog is not a medically recognized term but is a commonly used phrase that sums up feelings of confusion, forgetfulness, and lack of focus and mental clarity. Having brain fog is fairly common, but it’s not normal. There are many reasons for loss of focus or “Brain Fog”:

· Sleep deprivation

· Depression

· Hormone changes

· Thyroid problems

· High protein diets

· Overstressed

 · Menopause/Andropause

· Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

· Technology overload

· Adrenal fatigue

· Substance abuse or withdrawal, prescriptions

· Too little exercise, unhealthy diet

Loss of focus usually falls into two categories—lifestyle induced or as a side effect for a medical condition. Those experiencing the issue should see a doctor to rule out a related and underlying medical condition.

Folate—Even slight deficiencies lead to tiredness, distractedness, moodiness & reduced memory recall
Omega 3 Fatty Acids—Support memory, increase speed of neural transfer & can help repair damaged neuro-connections
Zinc—Low zinc exacerbates the effects of stress on the body, zinc is involved in the maintenance of ideal hormone levels
