A Thief is Lurking in Your Coffee...
Are You Getting Enough Nutrition?

The economy may be down, but according a New York Times article, vitamin sales are up! In a time when people are scrambling to save a penny, many of us are realizing the importance of our health during these stressful times. Since health insurance is becoming more expensive, more Americans are shifting to “prevention” mode, taking their health into their own hands. This is a good thing, but only an educated consumer can make the best choice for their health.

Why is it that in a country where obesity and over-eating is a major problem, many are still not getting the nutrition that they need? One reason is stress. Stress depletes our bodies of calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamin C, and the B vitamins. This is why we feel fatigued when faced with stress.

Many people reach for a cup of coffee when they are tired, but coffee snatches more of these vitamins, as well as potassium from our bodies. Add sugar and you lose chromium, magnesium and even more C’s and B’s. Even medication designed to help us, are suspects in crime – aspirin walks away with phosphorus and more vitamin C. Are you on birth control pills? Subtract even more vitamins A, B and Cs. With the string of festive holidays during these coming seasons, that bottle of wine may make you feel merry – but watch out! Excessive alcoholic drinking could be the greatest robber of all – taking many nutrients, especially the stress-relieving B vitamins.

It is no wonder well-informed people are reaching for effective supplements. Golden Illumination's Brain Formulas can help to replace what’s been stolen. Try these well-formulated brain lobe supplements to replenish your health.

              1. Total “True” Responses: Dopamine Deficiency


              2. Total “True” Responses: Acetylcholine Deficiency


              3. Total “True” Responses: GABA Deficiency


              4. Total “True” Responses: Serotonin Deficiency



              • Add up the True Answers in the 4 catagories
              • Then circle the highest number of the 4 catagories this is your most deficient nature and is the one which is most likely to lead to illness. Often, you burn out your edge just by being yourself. For example, if you are GABA deficient it is likely that you are a dopamine nature, these types often push themselves too hard at work and burn out their edge.

              Any category between 3 and 5 true statements is considered a minor deficiency.

              Any category between 6 and 8 true statements is considered a moderate deficiency.

              Your age in years differs from the physiological age, and the age of your brain. This is really a way of saying that what is really important for overall health is first and foremost brain health and fitness.

              Dr. Braverman’s emphasis on the health of the brain was a wake up call for me. We don’t normally think about it, but your body cannot function optimally if the master controller, your brain is not functioning properly.

              The cornerstone of brain health is the balance of your neurotransmitters, which are the chemicals that allow your brain’s processing operations to be carried out. A neurotransmitter is a chemical that is involved in processing signals between neurons and other cells.

              The four primary neurotransmitters involved in maintaining a balanced brain are:

              • Dopamine
              • Acetylcholine
              • GABA – Gamma-aminobutyric acid
              • Serotonin

               Each of your neurotransmitters is essential to proper brain health and when any one of them is deficient or out of balance with the others, problems result which can ultimately affect all body systems, leading to very serious, and even life threatening health conditions.

              Your brain age is dependant on the right neurotransmitter balance, and when problems in this area are identified soon enough, it becomes possible in many cases for you to treat these imbalances with diet and over the counter supplements rather than drugs.

              Golden Illumination is so pleased to offer Dr. Braverman's Brain Deficiency Quiz. We recommend all of our customers to take this test before purchasing the Brain Formulas. ~View Brain Quiz above~
