The Dr. Mike Show is Brought to You by Neuro Coffee (TM)


Neuro Coffee (TM) is a high octane brain supplement infused into great coffee. It contains a patented extract from the coffee fruit, which has been clinically shown to increase levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) after taking. BDNF acts to grow and repair neurons in the brain and the body. As we age, BDNF decreases. Age related diseases of the brain (e.g. age related memory loss) are often associated with low levels of BDNF. Aging in general, stress, and lack of sleep also negatively impact BDNF.

Coffee drinkers never miss their morning cup of coffee, and now with Neuro Coffee (TM) you can enjoy that morning ritual even more knowing that it is helping your brain health. Neuro Coffee (TM) is roasted in small batches. Click here to start getting your monthly supply of Neuro Coffee.
