Five Tips Prevent Memory Losses

Tips Prevent Memory LossesMost of the time memory losses can be triggered by too many tasks at once (multitasking) or effect from menopause, but do not give up by accepting it as a natural thing. This article will explain to what you should do so memory losses can stay away from you longer than you expected:

Flossing every day
. The formation of plaque on teeth is not good for our brain, and then the memory. According to Michael Roizen, MD, co-author YOU-The Owner's Manual: An Insider's Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger, plaques that form between the teeth can trigger an immune reaction that attacks the blood vessels, so blood vessels can not send nutrients to the brain. The solution? Do not forget flossing every day. Keep forgetting? Then keep your floss in your makeup case, it would be easily seen.

Multitasking at the gym. Just as body exercise that keep your body in good shape, so does exercising your brain, it will be in good shape too. Do both it will bring a double benefits. How to multitasking at the gym? Try to fill in a crossword puzzle while pedaling stationary bikes or listen to language lessons or iPod while running. Scientists say, train your body and mind at the same time can rejuvenate brain cells. Do not like multitasking? Fill out the crossword puzzle right after the exercise, when the brain is still really energetic.

Consume more fish. Omega-3 contained in fish such as salmon and fortified foods such yogurt for instance, is a super food for memory which is the DHA, a type of omega-3, effectively reducing inflammation and improving arterial nerve protective layer. Again, according to Roizen, will reduce memories losses due to age factor, reducing the risk of dementia, depression, and accelerate the intellect.

Sports. Increasing the heart rate 3 times a week for 20 minutes, even just walking, will increase the oxygen in the brain that helps the growth of new cells. According to Sam Wang, Ph.D., associate professor of neuroscience at Princeton University, aerobic exercise is as effective as the other brain training activities. You don’t even have to go to the gym. Studies show that physical activity of moderate to strong, even just once a week, proved to be able to help you maintain cognitive function up to 30%.

Use chopsticks. According to Maoshing Ni, PhD, author of Second Spring: Dr. Mao's Hundreds of Natural Secrets for Women to Revitalize and Regenerate at Any Age, studies show that engaging in activities that involve the fingertips will directly stimulate the brain. Activities with your fingertips, such as using chopsticks, spinning, or even twirling a pen or pencil between the fingers can also help the brain; all this fingertips activity helps blood circulation to brain. As we all aware good blood circulation will help remove waste products which prevent nutrients reaching the brain.
