Does damage of brain cells cause brain fog?

Damage of brain cells

Another cause of brain fog is damage of the brain cells, for example due to aging or injury. Additionally, lack of sleep can cause hormonal imbalance and this can result in a bad effect on your brain. Prolonged fasting will help not only with providing ketones to feed your brain, but also by activating autophagy (healing/detoxifying process in the body).


  • Do periodic prolonged fasting (at least 18 hours)

  • Get more sleep (take naps if needed)

  • Consume B vitamins:

• nutritional yeast

• benfotiamine

  • Take potassium and magnesium

Other causes:

  • Constantly thinking/analyzing

  • Inflammatory condition

  • Sleep problems
