Brain health is becoming more important and talked about now more than ever. With the increase in Alzheimer’s and Dementia, long haul viruses that cause long term brain fog and increased time on technology taking care of our brains is of the utmost importance.
Here are things we know will help keep your brain healthy:
Exercise has many known benefits, and regular physical activity also benefits the brain. Multiple research studies show that physically active people are less likely to experience a decline in their mental function and have a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. These benefits result from increased blood flow to your brain during exercise. It also tends to counter some of the natural reduction in brain connections that occur during aging, reversing some of the problems. Aim to exercise several times per week for 30 to 60 minutes.
Get plenty of sleep.
Sleep plays an important role in your brain health. Some theories state that sleep helps clear abnormal proteins in your brain and consolidates memories, which boosts your overall memory and brain health.
Aim for seven to eight consecutive hours of sleep per night, not fragmented sleep of two- or three-hour increments. Consecutive sleep gives your brain the time to consolidate and store your memories effectively.
Eat a Mediterranean diet.
Your diet plays a large role in your brain health. Consider following a Mediterranean diet, which emphasizes plant-based foods, whole grains, fish and healthy fats, such as olive oil. It incorporates less red meat and salt than a typical American diet. Studies show people who closely follow a Mediterranean diet are less likely to have Alzheimer’s disease than people who don’t follow the diet.
Stay mentally active.
Your brain is similar to a muscle — you need to use it or lose it. There are many things that you can do to keep your brain in shape, such as doing crossword puzzles or Sudoku, reading, playing cards or putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Consider it cross-training your brain. Incorporate different types of activities to increase effectiveness.
Keep your blood vessels healthy.
The health of your arteries and veins is important to your heart health but it is also critical for brain health. Get your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol checked regularly and take steps to keep your numbers within a normal range.
In addition, many people have good results with supplements formulated for the brain.
