Cant find your car keys? Forget whats on your TO DO work list? Youre not alone. Each one of us forgets things occasionally. We may call it a seniors moment, but memory loss is nothing to take lightly. All of us know the old saying use it or lose. Well, its the same for our brain.
This giant sized look alike walnut, is the hub center of various types of intelligence, reasoning, memory and other cognitive skills. One of the ways to keep it from becoming sluggish, is to be mentally active. Volunteer, learn a musical instrument, pick up the newspaper and do the Sudoku, learn a new hobby etc. This will keep the electrical impulses in the brain, firing.
All of us know that the basics to prevent memory loss are to:
- Get a good nights sleep
- Stay hydrated.
- Exercise to help sharpen thinking.
- Get organized and be socially active.
The most important fuel for the brain is eating a well balanced diet, enriched with natural vitamins and supplements, herbs and enzymes. The foremost food that comes to mind is fish, as brain food. It is a rich protein source rich in omega 3 fatty acids that are key for brain health. These healthy fats that are EPA and DHA have the amazing brain power and have been linked to lower dementia and stroke risks and slower mental decline; plus, they may play a vital role in enhancing memory, especially as we get older.
