The number of people with diagnosed brain illness is rising at a staggering rate. Whether due to a poor diet, lifestyle, or even due to repetitive concussions or trauma, there are nearly 50 million people worldwide who are living with dementia, more than 8 million new cases diagnosed every year, and an estimated 136 million by 2050. Currently, worldwide healthcare costs associated with dementia are reported to be well over $900 Billion USD. There isn’t a single country on earth whose current health-care system is well equipped to deal with these costs. It’s time to take the health of your brain into your own hands.

Lifespan, that’s simply the number of years you’ll spend on this planet. Healthspan, however, is the number of years you will live in good health. Brainspan on the other hand is the number of years you will live in good health with excellent cognitive faculty. When you eat an optimal diet, practice your best lifestyle, and use nutrients that optimize brainspan, you are brainspanning!

Why become a Brainspanner?

The desire to become a brainspanner is a little different for everyone. Most of us want to live longer, in optimal health, and with full mental faculty.

For Bryce Wylde, the author of Brainspanners, adopting this way of life was to prevent ending up like his mother – with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.


A Health Seeker is someone who desires to resolve a health concern or problem – one who wants to go from unhealthy to well.

A Wellness Seeker is already healthy but desires to go from good to better and achieve optimal wellness.

A brainspanner will do everything they need to do in order to live a long and healthy life with the best possible brain function.

Whether you are a health seeker or a wellness seeker, becoming a brainspanner is the most important thing you can do to live your best life, starting right now.

Participant Results

A trial conducted by Brain Armor monitored the effects of daily Brain Armor supplementation on participants' omega-3 index (O3i) over a period of 90 days (n=64). At the end of the trial, 100% of the participants who supplemented with Brain Armor appropriate for their age showed an increase in O3i, including those who were supplementing with different sources of omega-3 prior to the start of the trial. Similar results were true for two other beneficial health markers: ratio of Omega 6:Omega 3 and AA:EPA ratio.

"There is credible research that shows that it is possible to create and develop new brain cells—so called neurogenesis: generating the birth of new cells. DHA is a vital pre-curser to those new cells."
