Schools Out: 10 Ways I Keep My Mind Sharp In Summer (#10 is Delicious…)

Couple having fun during the summer

As a kid, I couldn’t wait for school to end and summer vacation to begin.

Those last few weeks of class were torture as I would stare out the window at the nice weather, desperately waiting until I could slam my books shut, toss my backpack in the closet, and run around with my friends. 

I actually had a running joke with my family anytime an educational topic would come up: 

“Sorry, Mom—I turned my brain off for the summer.” 

Well, that was a looong time ago, and now I have almost the opposite desire.

Around our house, school helps keep our family on a routine. Keeping schedules, doing projects, and helping with homework helps me stay ‘on top of things.’ 

But in the summer, our schedules relax a little, and I can feel my mind wander a bit more than usual.  

This isn’t exactly a bad thing, but as I’m getting older, I definitely pay more attention to my mental health than I used to. 

Here are ten ways I keep mentally fit during the summer. 

1. Dynamic Brain Supplements

OK, so this is a little bit of a shameless plug for my company… 

But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. 

One of the easiest ways I’ve found to boost my brain power is by taking Dynamic Brain every day.* This supplement is packed with essential nutrients and cognitive enhancers designed to improve focus, memory, and overall mental performance.*

And it’s not just me it works for, either. Just check out the reviews on the Dynamic Brain product page and see for yourself. 

2. Regular Physical Exercise

Exercise isn’t just for my body; it’s great for my brain, too. Activities like jogging, swimming, or even a daily walk increase blood flow to the brain, promoting neurogenesis and enhancing cognitive function.

“Neurogenesis” is the creation of new neurons in the brain. This process starts during infancy and continues in specific brain areas throughout our lives but can sometimes stall as we get older.

3. Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation help reduce my stress, improve concentration, and enhance memory. I set aside a few minutes daily to practice deep breathing, guided meditation, or mindful activities.

I use the Calm app for guided meditation, but if you’re new to the practice, you can also use many other tools. 

4. Learning Something New

Summer is a perfect time to pick up a new hobby or skill. Over the years, I’ve studied Spanish, learned to play the guitar, and taken an online course from the community college where I live. 

5. Being Socially Active

Engaging with friends and family, joining clubs, or participating in community activities helps keep my mind sharp. Social interactions stimulate cognitive functions and reduce the risk of cognitive decline.

Especially during summer, I like to host dinner parties and BBQs with friends and family. 

6. Getting Adequate Sleep

Quality sleep is crucial for my cognitive function. I aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night to allow my brain to rest and rejuvenate. Good sleep hygiene practices significantly impact memory and learning.

7. Playing Brain-Training Games

Numerous apps and games are designed to challenge my brain and improve my cognitive skills. I enjoy puzzles, card games, or strategy-based games to engage my mind.

8. Reading Regularly

Reading books, articles, or even blogs stimulates my brain, improves my vocabulary, and enhances my comprehension skills. I make a summer reading list and dive into new and interesting topics.

I’m currently reading “The Women” by Kristin Hannah. It’s sometimes super intense, but I can’t put it down.  

9. Staying Hydrated

Dehydration can negatively affect my cognitive abilities. I ensure I drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep my brain functioning optimally.

You will never find me without my oversized water bottle. 

10. Eating a Brain-Healthy Diet

Best Brain Foods for your health

You didn’t think I’d write a whole blog post about mental fitness without giving you one of my favorite brain-boosting recipes, did you? 

I incorporate brain-boosting foods into my diet, such as fatty fish, blueberries, nuts, and seeds. These foods are rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients essential for brain health.

Brain-Boosting Salmon and Kale Salad

Ingredients

• 2 salmon fillets
• 1 bunch of kale, washed and chopped
• 1 avocado, diced
• 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Instructions

Prepare the salmon:

• Preheat your grill or oven to 375°F (190°C).
• Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

• Add the chopped kale to a large bowl. Drizzle with a little olive oil and a pinch of salt.
• Massage the kale with your hands for about 2-3 minutes until it becomes tender and slightly wilted.

Prepare the dressing:

Dress the salad:

Embrace Adventure This June: How My Friend Found Relief During Great Outdoors Month

Older woman smiling hiking outdoors summer
Older woman smiling hiking outdoors summer

Did you know that June is “Great Outdoors Month?” 

Like many of us, I’ve (unknowingly) been celebrating ‘Great Outdoors Month’ pretty much every June my whole life. 

Hiking, paddleboarding, biking… It’s the perfect time of year to get outside and move your body. 

It got me thinking, though, about one of my dearest friends Sarah, and her battle with nerve discomfort

You see, Sarah and I have been hiking buddies for more than 20 years. We even hiked to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,505 feet), but that was a looooong time ago. 

Anyway, a few years back, Sarah started dealing with nerve issues in her hands and feet. One day, after she declined an evening walk with me, I remember her saying: 

“I’m so sorry I can’t walk with you tonight. It feels like a sunburn but inside my feet. Even a bedsheet rubbing across my toes at night will wake me up with an insane burning sensation that makes it hard to sleep, so walking is out tonight.” 

I’ve had my own share of health issues over the years, but nothing quite like what she described. I felt awful for her. 

But you know what? Sarah didn’t get down on herself, and she didn’t quit doing the things she loved, like being outdoors… 

She took action. 

Today, I want to share with you how my friend conquered her own nerve issues. 

She’s given me permission to tell you her story, and we both hope it will help if you or somebody you know is dealing with nerve discomfort.

Speak with a Healthcare Professional

It sounds obvious, but do not skip this step. Nerve discomfort is a relatively common issue, especially as you get older. 

Speak openly with your physician about your circumstances, but also understand you have options beyond prescription medications. 

Sarah worked with her doctor from the start to develop a plan that included the following lifestyle changes.

Eat a Good Diet

Eating a well-balanced diet is crucial. There’s no special eating plan specifically for nerve issues, but ensuring you’re getting enough nutrients can help your overall health and potentially reduce discomfort. 

Sarah has started incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into her meals. Reducing or eliminating alcohol intake has also been beneficial. We now enjoy healthy picnic recipes packed full of superfoods when we have outdoor meals.

Get Regular Exercise

Many studies have shown that people with chronic discomfort who exercise feel better, have more energy, and have improved moods compared to those who don’t. 

Note: I’ll cover how to overcome that initial barrier to getting yourself moving in the next few sections.

Sarah found low-impact activities like walking in the park, swimming, and gentle cycling worked best. We’ve even modified our hikes to choose flatter, easier trails. 

Despite the nerve discomfort, these activities help Sarah stay active and boost her mood.

Use of Assistive Devices

Sarah has found that using assistive devices like hiking poles makes it easier for her to move around and reduces her discomfort on the trails. 

Always someone who loves fashion, picking the right shoes can also be a crucial step in comfort. Gone are the uncomfortable pumps, as Sarah is now embracing more sensible but still stylish walking shoes.

She also invested in ergonomically designed chairs and desks for her home, which have brought significant relief.

Relaxation Techniques

Yoga, fitness and woman exercise, training and workout for wellness, relax and health in living room at home. Meditation, pilates and senior lady stretching, focus and calm on yoga mat in lounge.

Stress can exacerbate nerve discomfort, so managing it is key. 

Sarah started practicing yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises. These techniques not only help with stress but also seem to reduce her level of discomfort. 

We often have serene outdoor yoga sessions, finding peaceful spots in nature to practice mindfulness and relaxation.

Supplementing Your Diet with the Right Formula of Amino Acids, Antioxidants, and Nutrients

Beyond the Label: What the Community is Saying About Dynamic Krill Oil

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Krill Oil
Stonehenge Health Dynamic Krill Oil

There are a lot of things I love about working at Stonehenge Health

I get to write about my passion—health and wellness. 

I research and learn about cutting-edge new ingredients, studies, and products. 

I work with amazing and talented people. 

But my favorite part about working here? 

I get to hear stories about people transforming their lives through better health. 

I talk with people who tell me how our products have helped them improve their health literally every day, and I read dozens more online, too. 

Today, I wanted to share some of those stories with you, specifically about one of our most versatile products: Dynamic Krill Oil

Have you ever wondered if there’s a supplement that could address multiple health concerns at once? 

Imagine finding something that supports your overall well-being, from reducing joint discomfort to improving mental clarity. 

At Stonehenge Health, we’ve formulated Dynamic Krill Oil to do just that, plus a lot more.  

But don’t just take my word for it—listen to what our community has to say. Here are a few of my favorites:

Improved Mobility and Reduced Discomfort

“One week into my first bottle of Dynamic Krill Oil, my right knee discomfort from a broken knee cap years ago has disappeared. Previously, kneeling caused serious problems. Three weeks in, my lower back discomfort is also considerably reduced.”*

Our customers often report rapid relief from long-standing discomfort. Whether it’s a knee injury or back stiffness, Dynamic Krill Oil helps to improve mobility and reduce discomfort, allowing you to enjoy your day.*

Clean and Pure Omega-3 Source

“I’m new to krill oil but have done a lot of research and am convinced of its benefits. After a few weeks, I feel great with zero side effects. I like that krill oil is cleaner than other types of fish oils for Omega-3’s because krill are lower on the food chain, helping them avoid pollutants that build up as larger creatures devour smaller ones. Plus, Antarctica is definitely clean as oceans go.”

Krill oil is a superior source of Omega-3 fatty acids because it’s derived from small, shrimp-like creatures found in the clean, unpolluted waters of Antarctica.*

This means fewer contaminants and a purer product for you.*

No Fishy Aftertaste

“There is no fishy aftertaste, and it contains high amounts of astaxanthin and phospholipids. After a few days of use, it relieved my dry eye symptoms.”

One common complaint about fish oil supplements is the unpleasant aftertaste.

Dynamic Krill Oil eliminates this issue, providing all the benefits without the fishy burps. Plus, the added astaxanthin and phospholipids enhance its effectiveness, particularly for conditions like dry eyes.*

Relief from Joint Discomfort and Swelling

“I’ve been taking Dynamic Krill Oil every day for about six months. Within days of starting, I noticed that my ankles were not swollen and stiff at the end of the day.”*

Dynamic Krill Oil can significantly reduce joint discomfort, making daily activities more comfortable.*

Many folks have experienced noticeable improvements in their joint health.*

Enhanced Mental Clarity

senior woman and man mediating and relaxing outdoors

“I have been using Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Krill Oil for about 18 months and have to say that within the first week or so of using it, I felt a significant improvement in my mental clarity. It was such a relief to have my ‘sharp brain’ back; I can’t even explain my excitement. I thought I was doomed to declining mental faculties, and perhaps that is waiting for me down the road, but now? Now I have the brain I had 15-20 years ago, and I completely attribute it to this krill oil. Not only that, but I also experienced a noticeable reduction in my joint discomfort. Try it; you’ll be excited, too.”*

Dynamic Krill Oil isn’t just about physical health. Like the review above, many members of our community find that it enhances mental clarity and cognitive function, giving them back the sharpness and mental acuity they thought they had lost.*

Effective Swelling Reduction

“I had a case of swollen feet and lower legs, particularly my left. I took some other natural supplements that helped a little, but I still had significant swelling. I purchased my first Dynamic Krill Oil three months ago and started using it as soon as it arrived. I noticed a reduction in the swelling after about 4 weeks, and after 3 months of use the swelling in my feet and legs is about 95% improved. I am very happy with the product and have reordered it. Actually, I signed up for the automatic shipment program.”*

Persistent swelling can be uncomfortable. Dynamic Krill Oil has been shown to provide much-needed relief.*

Breaking Free from Multitasking With a Healthier Approach to Productivity

A cheerful, busy mature Asian female tailor or online clothes shop seller is multitasking, talking on the phone with her customer while working on her computer in her atelier studio.

In today’s fast-paced world, multitasking is a societal norm. 

It’s often listed as a desirable skill in job descriptions and is commonly thought of as a positive trait. We almost yearn to juggle multiple tasks at once, believing it will make us more productive. 

And I admit it; as a Mom and full-time researcher and writer, I am a frequent multitasker. 

But is multitasking really beneficial, or is it doing more harm than good?

To answer that you have to dig into the science of the human brain.

The Science of Multitasking

task switching concept

From a scientific standpoint, multitasking isn’t quite what it seems. 

The human brain is not designed to perform multiple tasks simultaneously. Instead, what we refer to as multitasking is actually “task switching.” 

This is when the brain rapidly shifts its focus from one task to another. According to a study from the University of Southern California, this constant switching can lead to several inefficiencies. The study indicates that multitasking causes us to make more mistakes, retain less information, and also changes the way our brains work.1

When we switch tasks, our brain must reconfigure itself to the new task’s rules and parameters. This process consumes cognitive resources and time, making each switch less efficient and increasing the likelihood of errors. 

As a result, the quality of work often declines.

The Downsides of Multitasking on Your Health

Multitasking Concept. Overworked Businessman Sitting At Laptop Overloaded With Work

But apart from the reduced quality of work, there are potentially some serious mental health concerns associated with constant multitasking. 

Increased Stress

Multitasking can elevate stress levels. The brain’s constant shifting between tasks creates a sense of pressure and urgency, which can lead to chronic stress. 

Over time, this stress can contribute to burnout and other health issues.

Over time, this stress can contribute to burnout and other health issues.

Cognitive Decline

There is evidence that multitasking may contribute to long-term cognitive decline. Research published in the journal PLOS ONE found that people who frequently multitask may experience reduced brain density in areas responsible for cognitive control and emotional regulation.2

Impulsiveness

Multitasking can make us more impulsive. When we’re constantly switching tasks, we may become accustomed to the rapid pace and start making hasty decisions without fully considering the consequences. 

This impulsiveness can negatively impact our professional and personal lives.

4 Benefits of Focusing on One Task

While multitasking might seem like a way to get more done, focusing on one task at a time can be much more effective.

1. Improved Quality of Work

Happy mature woman planting flowers in the garden at home

When we dedicate our full attention to a single task, the quality of our work improves. We’re able to think more deeply, catch mistakes, and produce better outcomes.

2. Reduced Stress

Focusing on one task at a time can reduce stress. It allows us to work at a more manageable pace and complete tasks more efficiently, leading to a greater sense of accomplishment and well-being.

3. Enhanced Cognitive Function

Focusing on one task can strengthen our cognitive abilities. Concentrated effort improves memory, problem-solving skills, and overall brain health.

4. Better Decision Making

Single-tasking encourages thoughtful decision-making. It gives us the time to consider all aspects of a situation, leading to more balanced and well-informed choices.

Summer days are here, and with them, warmer temperatures. 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t always wake up with the best appetite. This is especially true in summer due to the warmer weather.  

On days I’m not feeling a big appetite, I love to whip up a smoothie to help start my day off on the right foot

For Your Nerve Health

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Nerve

It’s generally not something most people think about every day, but it’s important to take action to protect your nerve health

Because although it’s a normal part of the aging process, nerve discomfort caused by cellular degeneration is no fun. I hear stories from our Stonehenge Health community all the time describing their issues with nerve discomfort: 

Feeling tingling sensations or as if pins and needles are pricking the skin, typically in the hands or feet…

Noticing a loss of sensation or numbness, particularly in the extremities, which can be hazardous as it may affect the ability to detect pain or temperature changes…

Experiencing sharp, burning, or throbbing discomfort that can occur suddenly and severely or persist as a chronic condition…

Getting essential nutrients to support your nerves is important, but it’s a challenge. 

If you’re trying to get all the necessary vitamins and nutrients you need to support nerve health from your food, it’s going to be an uphill battle…

Researching different food sources, planning meals, and calculating specific serving sizes to get a sufficient amount of nutrients to support your nervous system just isn’t realistic. 

This is where Dynamic Nerve can help. 

With Dynamic Nerve, everything you need to support healthy nerve function is contained in a bottle. Take three capsules with a glass of water daily, and you’ll give your body everything it needs to support your nerves.*

Thousands trust our scientifically formulated supplement to reduce nerve pain, boost nerve health, and enhance energy.* 

Packed with B vitamins and Alpha-lipoic acid, it’s designed to strengthen nerves and improve function.*

How & When Should I Take My Supplements?

We often get asked what the optimal time is to take a supplement. You may have heard that you should take them with food on an empty stomach, or… take them before breakfast, or… take them before you go to sleep, so which is it?

The answers depend on the ingredients, what you want to accomplish, and, most importantly, what you want to avoid—like insomnia or digestive discomfort.

So, let’s break it down by product type to discover when and why timing matters in achieving the full benefits you’re looking for in your daily supplement routines.

Water-Soluble Vitamins

Dynamic Liposomal Vitamin C

The human body does not naturally store water-soluble vitamins for later use, so you need to replenish them daily through your diet or supplements. 

Two of the most well-known water-soluble vitamins are B complex and C vitamins.

In general, it’s safe to take any B vitamins or a B-complex vitamin at any time of the day. 

But because B vitamins are known to boost your energy, taking them first thing in the morning lets you take advantage of their energy-boosting properties.  

Recent research also shows that B Vitamins may interfere with sleep and even cause vivid dreams—another reason to take them earlier in the day.1

Vitamin C naturally occurs in citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit, and lemons. No matter how you get your Vitamin C—fruit or supplements—the benefits are enormous. It’s an essential nutrient that not only supports a healthy immune system but also collagen synthesis and brain health

However, a study on 16,000 Americans showed that one in three of us is still Vitamin C deficient.2

Note: Because even a moderate Vitamin C deficiency can lead to dry skin, a reduction in collagen synthesis, and an impaired immune system, consider taking a high-quality daily supplement like Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Liposomal Vitamin C.

This formula contains a potent daily dose of 1,500 mg of fat-soluble and highly bioavailable Vitamin C. Dynamic Liposomal Vitamin C efficiently replenishes your daily needs.

Fat-Soluble Vitamins

Some examples of fat-soluble vitamins include vitamins A, D, E, and K. 

Fat-soluble vitamins dissolve in oil, so they should generally be taken alongside food. 

Studies show that taking fat-soluble vitamins immediately following a meal may boost the amount of vitamins your body absorbs.3 

This means that it doesn’t particularly matter what time you take them as long as you take them with food.

Probiotics

Dynamic Biotics

Your gut microbiome is a vast collection of beneficial and harmful bacteria that directly affect your digestive health, brain function, and immunity

Probiotics can help restore your gut with helpful bacteria that balance your gut microbiome. Getting (and keeping) your gut in balance is key to feeling your best.

Your digestive system becomes less active while you sleep; therefore, the best time to take probiotic supplements like Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Biotics is at bedtime. This way, the probiotics have the chance to hang out longer in your intestines and colonize.

Note: Dynamic Biotics contains 55 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) of lactobacillus and bifidobacterium probiotic strains. It also includes prebiotics to help nourish the good bacteria and give them the food they need to have the best chance to colonize and thrive in your gut.*

Minerals

It’s best to take minerals such as zinc and magnesium before bedtime. 

Some minerals produce a calming effect that may help you fall asleep more quickly and sleep more deeply.4 

If you’ve been prescribed a mineral supplement twice a day, the best times to take it are morning and evening.

Omega-3’s

Dynamic Krill Oil

Omega-3 supplements offer a wide range of health benefits, from a better mood to better mobility.* 

Many experts recommend taking essential fatty acids with a meal, ideally dinner. Omega-3 is more likely to be tolerated by your body when taken with food, and the enzymes released during digestion help facilitate absorption.5

 An emulsified form of krill oil is best, as it can further help with absorption.*

Fish oil is a popular omega-3 supplement that has a reputation for causing indigestion and nausea. Because fish oil is hard to digest, take fish oil in divided doses if you can, not before exercise or bedtime. Physical activity or moving your body into a prone position may cause unpleasant fishy-tasting reflux, sometimes referred to as “fish burps.”

Note: Many people have turned to krill oil due to its increased bioavailability compared to fish oil. Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Krill Oil contains 1,600 mg of K•REAL® Pure Antarctic Krill Oil (with EPA and DHA), ensuring that your body gets enough to thrive.*

Antioxidants

Antioxidants protect your cells from free radical damage caused by exposure to pollution, and chemicals and as a byproduct of an unhealthy lifestyle.*

Antioxidant supplements like Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Turmeric should be taken with a meal to help maximize absorption and minimize stomach upset. If you’re taking a twice-a-day dosage, you can take one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Adaptogens

Dynamic Mushrooms

Adaptogens—like the ones found in some functional mushrooms—help you adapt to all forms of stress, such as physical exertion, noise, fatigue, and emotional strain.* 

They simultaneously help you feel less anxious and more energized while improving your sense of well-being.* 6

Given their wide range of wellness benefits, adaptogens have exploded in popularity in the last few years.

Given that some adaptogens stimulate while others are more relaxing, timing an adaptogen depends on what you want to accomplish. Take energizing adaptogens like Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps in the morning or during the day.

Note: If you want to stay calm during a stressful workday, take a multi-adaptogen formula like Stonehenge Health Dynamic Mushrooms.* Lion’s Mane and Maitake will give you focus and energy, while the Reishi will help you stay calm and balanced.*

Multi-Ingredient Supplements

Dynamic Brain

Nutritional supplements that address specific health goals—such as boosting immunity to help stave off infection or improving cognitive function—often contain various ingredients that don’t fit entirely into one category. 

Take Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Brain—It’s a combination of 40 ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, and neuro-nutrients, that support your brain’s health while also helping to improve your memory and focus.* 

For multi-ingredient supplements like this, follow the instructions on the bottle.

If it is a multi-pill dosage, split the number of pills between morning and evening. Do not take Dynamic Brain at night. It contains a high level of B-complex vitamins known to boost energy. Therefore, the best time of day to take Dynamic Brain is first thing in the morning.

One last thing: Not all supplements on the market are monitored for quality, purity, or safety like prescription drugs. You should always select supplements made by a reputable source that is third-party tested and manufactured in cGMP-certified facilities in the United States, like all the high-quality products made by Stonehenge Health.

No matter how you’re looking to benefit from taking supplements, consistent daily use is the key to getting the results you’re looking for. Finding the time of day that works best for your needs and incorporating them as part of your routine is the ideal way to feel the maximum results and long-term benefits of any nutritional supplement you select.

Unveil the Power of Fungi: 3 Science-Backed Benefits You Can Get From Mushrooms

reishi functional mushroom
reishi functional mushroom

If you’ve been reading magazines or seeing lots of ads for mushroom products, you might be wondering: 

What’s all this talk about mushrooms? I thought they were just for pasta, salads, and pizza…

We’re not talking about those kinds of ‘shrooms—we’re talking about functional mushrooms. 

They’re called “functional mushrooms” because they contain bioactive compounds believed to positively impact the body, from boosting the immune system to enhancing mental clarity and providing energy.*

Functional mushrooms are:

• Rich in beta-glucans, so they support your immune system.*

Nootropic, meaning they support memory and mental clarity.*

Adaptogenic, which means they assist your body in adapting to daily stress, leading to improved mood and sleep quality.*

At Stonehenge Health, we have a unique blend of five functional mushrooms we call Dynamic Mushrooms

With thousands of online reviews, our community has shared many stories about the results they’re getting with our functional mushroom blend. 

In today’s article, we’ll pull a few recent testimonials and dive into the science behind the reported health benefits. 

Let’s start with three of the top reported health benefits: 

1. Increased concentration*

2. Reduced stress*

3. Less brain fog*

Let’s dive in.

1. Concentration

Concentrated mature businesswoman ceo boss typing on laptop, working at office desk

Short attention spans…

In our increasingly fast-paced world, you may feel like your attention span is getting shorter every year. 

Maybe it’s getting harder to finish a book, pay attention to a conversation, or even watch a movie without looking at your phone…

If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Concentration problems are a widespread concern, but you don’t have to let them negatively impact your life. 

Studies on the Lion’s Mane mushroom have shown its potential to enhance cognitive functions, including concentration. One study indicated that its bioactive compounds could stimulate brain cell growth, improving mental focus and cognitive agility, which are key to maintaining concentration. 1

This is exactly why we’ve included Lion’s Mane in our Dynamic Mushrooms formulation. A full gram in a 10:1 extract of the mushroom’s fruiting body packs a potent punch of nootropics designed to help support cognitive function.* 

 These are the types of stories we hear from our customers every day: 

“I noticed the difference in mental activity in the first few days.”*Jeff

“The day after taking it, I do feel a lot sharper! I noticed it the very first day after taking it! I gave it a month before writing this review because I do randomly have good days sometimes, and I wanted to rule out coincidences. But I am convinced it is working for me!”*Arlene

While many people turn to stimulants like caffeine to try and enhance their concentration, functional mushrooms may be able to give you the boost in focus you’re looking for without the crash.*

2. Stress

Senior Man Rubbing Tired Eyes Wearing Eyeglasses

Have you ever watched a TV show with a character who is so laid-back and calm no matter the situation you can’t help but laugh when you see them? 

It’s funny because everyone gets stressed out occasionally; nobody stays cool 100% of the time. 

And while stress is never fun, it happens sometimes and that’s normal. 

But if you find yourself constantly stressed or know somebody who is, it may indicate a larger problem. 

The Reishi mushroom, known for its adaptogenic properties, can help balance the body’s stress responses.*

“Adaptogenic” refers to substances that help the body manage stress by normalizing physiological processes and promoting a balanced homeostasis.

Clinical evaluations suggest that Reishi can lower elevated stress levels, promoting a more relaxed state of mind.*

Dynamic Mushrooms is packed with 100 mg of this incredible fungi, along with another 100 mg in a 4:1 extract of Maitake—also studied for its role in helping modulate the body’s stress response.* 

Together, these two adaptogenic mushrooms can provide a buffer against the physical and psychological impacts of stress.*

“These are amazing! Best mushrooms I have tried on the market. Fruiting bodies helped a lot with cognitive, stress, fatigue, and focus. Felt the results on day 2, been taking for three months now. Subscribed for monthly deliveries. Well worth it.”*Jessica

3. Brain fog

“Helps with brain fog and concentration.”*Geno

Brain fog isn’t technically a medical condition but rather a term describing symptoms that can affect one’s thinking ability. 

If you’ve ever had feelings of confusion, forgetfulness, lack of focus, mental clarity, and decreased concentration, then you know exactly what brain fog is. 

It can be caused by a variety of factors, including lack of sleep, stress, hormonal changes, diet, and medical conditions.

Hericium erinaceus (commonly known as Lion’s Mane mushroom) has been reported to have therapeutic activities related to the promotion of nerve and brain health.*

By stimulating the production of nerve growth factor, Lion’s Mane can potentially clear mental clutter and enhance cognitive clarity, combatting brain fog symptoms.* This improvement in cognitive functioning is essential for mental clarity and effective thinking.*

Krill Oil vs Fish Oil: Which is Better For Your Health?

Krill oil pills on a spoon, closeup
Krill oil pills on a spoon, closeup

Fish oil and krill oil have been a mainstay in the health and wellness conversation for years now for one primary reason: 

Omega-3 fatty acids. 

There’s a great reason for all the hype. 

Omega-3s have been clinically proven to deliver incredible health benefits such as: 

Heart health: Omega-3s have been clinically proven to support heart health in various ways.*1 

Eye health: Omega-3 is one of the structural components of the retina in the eyes, and supplementation can support overall eye health.*2 

Bone and joint health: Omega-3s can boost the amount of calcium in bones, which leads to improved bone strength.3 They are also beneficial in reducing joint discomfort and stiffness.* 

Mental health support: High levels of Omega-3s are associated with improved mood and cognitive function.*4 

Sleep quality: Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, may contribute to better sleep quality.*

So, if krill oil and fish oil have Omega-3s, you’ll get the same health benefits from either, right? 

Not exactly. 

It turns out there are several key differences between krill oil and fish oil—backed by science—that provide the answer to the question: 

Which is better for you: Krill or fish oil? 

When you look at the facts, there is really no comparison.

Here are four reasons krill oil is best for your health.

1. Omega-3 Health Benefits

woman taking supplement

Fish oil is renowned for its high concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids, specifically EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). As listed in the section above, these fats are crucial for providing many health benefits. 

Krill oil also contains EPA and DHA. However, unlike fish oil, the Omega-3s in krill oil are bound to phospholipids, which studies suggest may enhance the body’s absorption of these fatty acids.

Both supplements effectively deliver Omega-3 benefits, but krill oil may offer an edge in bioavailability.* This means that the same amount of Omega-3s might be more effectively used by the body when sourced from krill oil, potentially increasing its health benefits per gram.*

Advantage: Krill oil.

2. Additional Health Benefits

Beyond Omega-3s, only one type of oil has additional advantages. 

Fish oil is a well-established supplement often used for various conditions linked to Omega-3 deficiencies, but the benefits it provides are all related to Omega-3s. 

Krill oil, on the other hand, contains astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant that fish oil lacks. Astaxanthin offers additional antioxidant properties, protecting cells from damage and supporting your health.*

The astaxanthin in krill oil provides a unique bonus outside Omega-3s, offering more comprehensive health benefits.*

Advantage: Krill oil.

3. Absorption

The form of Omega-3s plays a crucial role in how well they are absorbed and utilized by the body. 

Fish oil’s Omega-3s are primarily in triglyceride form, which can be less efficiently absorbed compared to the phospholipid form found in krill oil. 

Phospholipids align more closely with the human body’s cell structure, facilitating a more straightforward absorption pathway. 

This enhanced absorption means that krill oil might offer more Omega-3 benefits at lower dosages, making it an appealing option for those who prefer to take fewer supplements.*

Advantage: Krill oil.

4. Purity and Sourcing

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Krill Oil

Purity is a significant concern when it comes to fish oil—and fish in general—as fish from the ocean can contain mercury and other environmental toxins. The purity of fish largely depends on the fish source, the food chain from which it comes, and the waters from which it is harvested. 

Fish oil is primarily derived from capelin, sand eel, anchovy, horse mackerel, cod liver, pilchard, and menhaden. These fish can be caught in many places worldwide, often in polluted oceans. 

In contrast, krill oil typically shows lower levels of contaminants for a few reasons: 

• Krill have short lifespans, giving them less time to ingest toxins

• Krill are on the bottom of the food chain, giving them less chance to ingest toxins

• Krill live in the Antarctic Ocean, which contains the most pristine waters on Earth

With Dynamic Krill Oil from Stonehenge Health, you can actually see the exact source of your krill oil bottle by scanning the QR code on the label of each bottle and entering the lot number  on our website. 

>> Click here for more info on our commitment to transparent sourcing

Note: Both krill and fish oil products should be certified by third-party organizations to ensure they are free from harmful levels of contaminants and that they contain the advertised levels of Omega-3s.

Advantage: Krill oil. 

Both krill oil and fish oil offer valuable health benefits, particularly in delivering Omega-3 fatty acids essential for maintaining various aspects of health.*

However, krill oil has a clear advantage due to better absorption, lack of harmful contaminants, and additional antioxidant benefits from astaxanthin.*

If you’re considering integrating krill oil into your health regimen, Dynamic Krill Oil from  Stonehenge Health is a top-rated option. 

Our product contains the highest-quality ingredients, and we ensure that each batch is sustainably harvested, transparently sourced, and rigorously tested for purity and potency. This aligns with our commitment to environmental responsibility and high-quality health supplements.

The purest and easily absorbed krill oil. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“This stuff is as pure as it gets. The only oceans that haven’t been horribly polluted are the Antarctic Oceans. That’s where they harvest this stuff, so you KNOW you’re getting the best.”Dustin

Stamina booster. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I recovered energy and stamina. Great.” Ana

Choosing the right Omega-3 supplement can significantly influence your health journey. Consider making Dynamic Krill Oil part of your daily routine to reap the profound benefits.

10 Healthy Ways to Deal With Physical Limitations

cheerful fit senior man running at the beach in the morning

Physical limitations… 

They challenge us our entire lives. 

When you’re a kid, it takes a while until you become coordinated enough to pour a glass of milk from the gallon jug, tie your shoelaces, become strong enough to open a car door or be tall enough to ride the roller coaster. 

When you get older, it can become harder to do the things you’re used to doing easily, like picking up a bag, climbing a ladder, opening a jar, or sometimes just getting out of a chair. 

If you’ve experienced any of these types of physical limitations, how do you handle it? 

You probably don’t throw a tantrum like a child, but it can be frustrating nonetheless. 

The great thing about this situation is that you can use your experience and wisdom to deal with these physical limitations in a positive and healthy manner. 

There are two different approaches to adding longevity to the things you love to do: mental and physical. 

Let’s dive into some practical strategies of how you can use both.

Mental Strategies for Coping with Physical Limitations

1. Adopt a Growth Mindset

View each limitation not as a definitive barrier but as a challenge to overcome or adapt to. This mindset encourages resilience and creativity in finding new ways to enjoy life’s pleasures.

2. Focus on What You Can Do

Rather than dwelling on lost abilities, concentrate on activities and hobbies within your reach. This positive focus enhances your quality of life and can lead to discovering new passions.

3. Practice Gratitude

Regularly acknowledging and appreciating the aspects of your health and life that are thriving can significantly improve mental well-being. Gratitude fosters a more joyful and satisfying life, regardless of physical constraints.

4. Seek Support

Connecting with others navigating similar experiences can be incredibly validating and empowering. Whether through community groups, online forums, or conversations with friends, shared experiences can lighten your emotional load.

Physical Actions to Enhance Well-being

Incorporate gentle exercises like walking, swimming, or yoga into your routine. These activities can maintain flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular health, which are crucial for overall well-being.

6. Prioritize Nutrition

7. Adopt Mind-Body Practices

Techniques such as meditation, tai chi, or deep breathing exercises can help manage stress and pain, improving physical and mental health.

8. Regular Check-ups

Stay on top of your health with regular medical check-ups. Early detection of any issues can lead to better management of your physical limitations.

9. Modify Your Environment

Adapt your living space to suit your needs better. Simple changes, like removing trip hazards, installing grab bars, and ensuring good lighting, can make a big difference in your independence and safety.

10. Integrating Supplements for Nerve Health

Stonehenge Health Dynamic Nerve

While adopting the above strategies, it’s also wise to consider how dietary supplements can support your body’s needs. 

One such supplement is Dynamic Nerve, crafted to nourish and support nerve health.* 

With getting older, nerve function can often decline, leading to discomfort and affecting mobility and daily activities. 

Dynamic Nerve is formulated with a blend of high-quality, natural ingredients designed to support nerve health and comfort, providing a foundation for maintaining activity levels and quality of life.*

Facing physical limitations as we age is a universal experience, but it doesn’t have to define your life. 

We can navigate these changes with grace and vitality by adopting a positive mindset, focusing on our capabilities, and taking proactive steps to maintain our health. Remember, it’s not about the years in your life, but the life in your years. 

And with the support of supplements like Dynamic Nerve, you’re not just getting older; you’re thriving.

Explore more about how Dynamic Nerve can complement your journey towards aging gracefully.

Embrace your health with a holistic approach that values mental resilience, physical activity, and supplements’ supportive role in maintaining nerve health.

Discovering the Magical Kitchen Within: A Path to Unconditional Love and Self-Care

Friends holding heart hands
Friends holding heart hands

The Magical Kitchen is a fascinating concept from the book “The Mastery of Love” by Don Miguel Ruiz.

The Mastery of Love

It’s a great book if you haven’t read it. 

But this lesson is so profound we had to share it with you today. 

In a world that often teaches us to seek validation and love from external sources, the Magical Kitchen serves as a profound reminder of the boundless love that resides within us all. 

This story challenges our perceptions of love and dependency and shines a light on the path to a fulfilling life rooted in self-love and generosity.

Ready to have your mind blown? Check this out.

What is the Magical Kitchen?

Middle age couple smiling confident pouring food on frying pan at kitchen

Imagine possessing a magical kitchen, abundant in every imaginable delicacy, offering unconditional nourishment to anyone who enters your home. The quantity and quality of your meals are endless. 

If somebody came to your door and offered you a slice of pizza on the condition that you give up your magical kitchen and do what they say, you would think they were crazy. You wouldn’t do it. 

Your magical kitchen is the inexhaustible source of love within your heart—a love so vast and self-sustaining that you don’t need anything else. This concept is the essence of self-love and independence, knowing that you have everything you need within yourself.

But if you’re like many people, you’re not always bursting with self-love. Often, you may seek out love from others. 

And this leads to a problem…

Starvation Leads to Dependency

With delicious pizza. Watches TV show. Senior man with grey hair and beard indoors.

Now, imagine a situation in which you don’t have a magical kitchen. In fact, you’re starving. 

If that same person offers you that same slice of pizza under the same conditions, you’ll take it because you need it. 

The slice of pizza is a metaphor for love or affection, showing how deprivation can lead us into dependency and loss of freedom. 

When we lack love for ourselves (no magical kitchen), we become vulnerable to manipulation, willing to compromise our values for the mere promise of affection from others. This desperation not only diminishes our self-worth but also entraps us in cycles of seeking external validation to fill an internal void.

The Path to Unconditional Love

The lesson from the magical kitchen is clear: 

When you cultivate a rich, unconditional love for yourself, you become free from the need for external validation

Like the magical kitchen, your heart is a source of infinite love. Embracing this truth empowers you to share your love generously without fear of depletion. 

As Ruiz says, “What makes you happy is love coming out of you.” 

This generosity of spirit enriches your life and attracts genuine connections and reciprocated love.

Self-Care as an Act of Love

In nurturing this inner abundance, self-care becomes an essential practice. 

Caring for your mind, body, and spirit through healthy habits, mindfulness, and nourishment is an act of love that keeps the kitchen well-stocked.
