yogayak.com The Ocean Sounding Breath is also known as Ujayii Breathing, Victory Breath or, for the cheeky yogi – the Darth Vader Breath. To create the proper “hah” sound, hold your hand up to your mouth and exhale as if trying to fog a mirror. Inhale the same way. Notice how you constrict the back of the throat to create the fog effect. Now close your mouth and do the same thing while breathing through the nose, creating the ‘ocean’ sound. Imagine that you are drinking your breath through the nose. You can do this breath during asana practice to bring more oxygen to the body, during meditation to increase mental focus, or anytime during the day that you find your concentration slipping. Duration 6 min Benefits: increases mental focus, builds heat in the body and promotes a sense of mindful calm.

It is amazing at first look that the brain uses 20 percent of the entire oxygen intake and 50 percent of all blood sugar even though it weighs only 2 percent of the total weight. But when you consider that the brain is the central controlling entity for all voluntary and involuntary actions, then the fact seems justified.

However, when there are problems in its normal functioning, the brain reacts by causing various symptoms and disorders like headaches, anxiety, confusion, loss of concentration and memory. The health of the brain is totally dependent on our food and drink habits, exercise and sleep. Most people accept that the body needs dietary supplements but the importance of mental health supplements is not yet known to all.

• Vitamins: All vitamins are essential for the body but Vitamin B and its family directly affects the brain. To take an example, Vitamin B12 helps in developing nerve cells and red blood cells. Its deficiency causes anemia, which is the inability of blood to carry oxygen, depression and mental disturbances.

• Minerals: The brain needs several minerals to keep functioning optimally. Zinc, for instance, is an essential ingredient in cell membranes. When zinc is deficient in pregnant women, the child is born with brain defects and other body defects like cleft lips and clubbed limbs. Zinc can be found in chicken, turkey, milk, cashews, peanuts and baked beans.

• Antioxidants: Free radicals can be very harmful to the brain cells because brain cells do not have the ability to repair themselves. Once the brain cells die, brain functions are affected. Therefore antioxidants are used to destroy free radicals. Vitamin C and E rich foods like lettuce, watermelon, spinach, oranges, lemons and bell pepper, are natural sources of antioxidants.

• Fatty acids: The importance of fatty acids in brain health is a recent discovery. Our diets have become poorer in fatty acid content over the past many years and this has been linked to increase in various mental ailments like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and bipolar disorder. Fatty acids are naturally found in fish like mackerel and herring and promote the health of cell membranes.

Consuming mental health supplements is becoming more of a necessity in the modern world because our diet does not include fresh fruits and vegetables but mainly comprises of processed fast foods which are inferior in nutritional terms. It is critical to take mental health supplements containing antioxidants, fatty acids, minerals and vitamins. But they are not to be considered an alternative to healthy habits like exercise, drinking water and adequate sleep.

Choosing the most appropriate mental health supplements can be difficult sometimes. However, nothing is better than the best. Usana Health Sciences has been producing and marketing various body health and mental health supplements since 1992 and has been selected as the best in a study that compared 1500 products in the market.

An ancient Chinese proverb says – He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors. This is true of the modern world where people are addicted to low grade food stuffs like burgers, fries, and other fast food. Nutritional deficiency is common to children as well as adults. Here are some vitamins and minerals which are commonly found to be lacking in our diet.

• Vitamin B-12: This is an important vitamin that helps in formation of red blood cells and development of nerve cells. The most common complaint of B-12 deficiency is anemia.

• Vitamin E: This is a known antioxidant that helps to prevent the oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Deficiency causes skin diseases and hair loss.

• Chromium: This mineral functions to enhance the metabolism of glucose and prevents anxiety, depression and fatigue.

• Iron: This is an important mineral which is lacking in most diets. It is beneficial for DNA synthesis and transport of oxygen. Iron deficiency is the main cause for anemia, low hemoglobin and growth retardation.

To address the issue of deficiency, one must consume nutritional supplements which provide all the micro-nutrients required by the body in a balanced form. You can consult your physician for which supplements to take.
