Neurofeedback is a great modality to teach the brain to function more optimally, by inducing the brain to create new connections between neurons (nerve cells). But, like with the growth of any tissue, that requires nutrients. You can teach the brain all you want, if it doesn't have the necessary nutrients to make new connections, then the benefit of neurofeedback would be limited.

So, to get the most out of neurofeedback, it is important to ensure that the brain has all the nutrients it needs. What are some of these nutrients? Here are some of the most important ones:

* Omega-3's: the brain contains a lot of fat, and about a third of that is DHA, one of the omega-3's

* Phosphatidyl-choline: necessary as a building block for cell membranes

* Anti-oxidants: help protect the brain from further damage

* Nootropics: these are substances that increase the blood flow to the brain, so that there are enough nutrients and enough oxygen for optimal function. This is also important for memory.

There are many more nutrients that can be useful, but these should get you started.
