3 Ways To Tackle Memory Loss And Improve Memory

Some people believe that forgetting things is a natural part of aging.

Furthermore, some people continue to perform better at work, while others continue to struggle.

Similarly, even children are prone to forgetting what they have learned at school or at home. More research is now showing that diet plays a vital role in memory formation.

Fat makes up the majority of our brain. It is high in metabolic activity and is made mostly of polyunsaturated fat.

Lutein is a molecule that has a neuroprotective impact on the brain by decreasing oxidation, especially in areas rich in polyunsaturated fats like DHA.

Because our brain utilizes 10% oxygen while it is at rest and 50% oxygen when it is intellectually active, our brain is constantly attacked by free radicals (chemicals that emerge from chemical reactions in our bodies).

Even though it only makes up 2% of our body weight, it requires a lot of energy to function, which is why it has a chemical reaction and is at risk of degeneration.

There is no need to be concerned because numerous nutrients, as well as lifestyle changes, can assist to reverse oxidative responses in the brain.

Here are a few strategies for dealing with memory loss.

They are as follows:

1. Foods that improve cognitive performance: Foods like potatoes, okro, spinach (especially green leafy vegetables), carrots, almonds, walnuts, milk, and the most effective of all, red grape juice, improve cognitive function and prevent memory loss.

Some meals are known to have a harmful impact on the brain. Red meat and its substitutes, hydrogenated vegetable oils, artificial colors and preservatives, and MSG (monosodium glutamate) are all examples (which is found mostly in spices as flavouring agent).

MSG, commonly known as hydrolyzed vegetable oil, is a flavoring agent used in snacks.

2. Getting enough sleep is essential: When we sleep, our brains are cleansed. The lymphatic system in our brain is responsible for removing poisons from our bodies.

Our brain, on the other hand, is cleansed by the glymphatic system. While sleeping, this eliminates waste products from the brain and nerve system.

It has a fluid called cerebrospinal fluid that accumulates all of these chemical compounds, such as hazardous by-products, proteins, and other substances, and aids in their expulsion from the body.

As a result, getting a decent night's sleep of 7-8 hours is critical for having a healthy memory.

3. Exercise is critical: Exercise or go for a brisk stroll at least five times per week.

A daily walk, especially a fast walk, helps to increase blood circulation and cognition.

At least 5 times every week, go for a walk. Certain yoga poses also promote blood circulation, which helps cognition.
