Boosting mental acuity: The surprising benefits of light therapy

Mental acuity is a term that describes the sharpness of the mind, encompassing abilities such as clear thinking, quick decision-making, and memory. As essential as these functions are, factors like aging, stress, poor diet and sleep, or even "brain fog" can hamper them. Thankfully, innovative solutions are becoming more readily known and available. The SYMBYX Neuro, is a photobiomodulation device emitting red light therapy and infrared light therapy. It provides a promising new and natural avenue to enhance mental clarity at-home.

Understanding Brain Fog

Brain fog is a term used to describe symptoms like confusion, forgetfulness, and a lack of mental clarity. It can be caused by several factors, including:

  • Sleep and Water: The obvious first port of call is to obtain adequate sleep and proper hydration to reduce brain fog fast.
  • Vitamin Deficiency: Deficiency in B vitamins, especially B12, are thought by some scientists to lead to brain fog or worsening mental acuity.
  • The role of Magnesium: Magnesium may aid cognitive function and may alleviate symptoms of brain fog, as well as improve sleep in people looking to improve mental acuity.
  • Diet: Foods rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins, like blueberries, avocado, and fish, may also help combat brain fog. Your dietary changes don’t have to be complicated but eating more whole foods and more plant food (which are higher in fibre) are common recommendations.  
  • Exercise, breathing and relaxation: Hydration, deep breathing exercises, short breaks in nature, a detox from screen-time and gentle to rigorous exercise may all stimulate improved cognition. Weight lifting has also been specifically shown to improve brain chemistry in recent scientific studies
  • Gut problems: Imbalances in gut flora and digestive issues can lead to brain fog. Inflammation from leaky gut can disrupt communication between your gut and brain, producing confusion and forgetfulness, making it one of the possible causes of reduced mental acuity. SYMBYX is clinically testing infrared laser on the gut or abdomen (via Mater Research IBD research study) to improve gut balance and function. (If you are interested in using our DuoCare 904 Laser or our PhysioCare laser for your digestion and/or gut issues please contact us at for treatment protocol and further information.)

Enhancing Mental Acuity with the SYMBYX Neuro

The SYMBYX Neuro is an advanced photobiomodulation helmet, a light therapy device, specifically designed to address cognitive concerns, including brain fog. It works through:

Enhancing brain blood flow: By promoting circulation, it ensures better oxygen and nutrient delivery to brain cells.

Reducing Inflammation: Minimizing brain inflammation helps clear neural pathways.

Stimulating Neurogenesis: Encouraging new neuron growth supports improved memory and learning.

Balancing Mood: By possibly treating depression and anxiety, it creates a favourable environment for clear thinking.
