Sidelined by a Head-Knock? | Marbles | Confidence & Resilience

Confident and resilient

There is more you can do to support your brain during rest and recuperation.

Marbles is a plant-based supportive supplement to maintain your energy levels, resilience and brain health after a blow, jolt or knock to the head.

Head-knocks, blows and jolts

A knock to the head is a risk in many sports – from football to cricket, boxing, horse-riding, skiing and even surfing. Whether competing at the highest professional level or simply as an enthusiastic amateur, a knock can leave the brain vulnerable. When symptoms linger, it’s common to be left wondering if life will ever be the same again. Not to mention whether it’ll be possible to return to training and competition.

Conventional medicine’s treatment for a knock to the head is simple rest and time, and this can work for 90 per cent of people who usually recover within a few weeks. But for a strong minority, the complex and often varied flow-on effects of a head-knock can persist long after the initial blow, impacting people’s lives for months or even years with ongoing and debilitating symptoms that include headaches, fatigue, mood imbalance, poor sleep and reduced memory and concentration.

It can help to know that the cognitive, physical and emotional side effects that follow a head-knock are the brain’s way of showing us that it is inflamed and not functioning normally. Because knocks and blows can’t be detected on MRIs and other brain scans they sometimes go undiagnosed, so it’s important that we recognise and report any symptoms to a medical professional.

Leading research into plant-based molecules offers a new way to actively support the brain during rest and recuperation.

The good news is that there are ways we can support our brain while we recover so we can start feeling back to normal and get back into training.

Marbles is a new supportive supplement built on leading research and in-house lab work to access the protective and restorative properties of plants.

Plants make up a large portion of a healthy diet and there’s a long history of evidence that shows that they provide essential nutrients to keep us healthy. New research has found that plants are also packed with powerful compounds called neuro-phytoactives that actively benefit the brain.5, 10

The neuro-phytoactives in Marbles have been shown to be especially helpful during times of rest and recuperation. They can assist in regulating our body’s inflammatory responses.1, 11 Relief from inflammation can help reduce the build-up of toxins and free radicals1, 22 that may be generated after experiencing a knock to the head. Neuro-phytoactives support energy levels to fight the fatigue. They also help preserve focus and maintain concentration4, 10, to help lift the ‘fog’.

An indirect benefit of Marbles is that it helps maintain a healthy mood14 and balanced mental wellbeing4 through the frustration of having to sit out and watch during the healing process.

Most importantly, Marbles supports your brain’s health so you can carry on with confidence and return to peak form in the sport you love.

Feel confident and enjoy the benefits that Marbles brings to the brain.

Your brain is with you every step of the way.
It’s yours for life. And there are times when it needs a little extra nourishment to keep up with you.

Phytoactives

Phytoactives are chemical compounds found only in plants that have protective and restorative qualities. They have long been used to support human health and wellbeing, and a new wave of research shows they can specifically support brain function and cognition. This has the potential to transform the way we address modern health ailments.
