Three home remedies to help stimulate and strengthen the brain naturally

Just like heart health, brain health is one of the most important aspects in the life of any human being. Protecting it helps prevent conditions such as dementia, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease.

“Brain health is defined as the development and preservation of neural functions and networks according to age. It is necessary to enjoy a full life, as well as a good ability to recover from injuries or illnesses ”, indicates the portal Guttmann.

In this sense, the digital platform High level recommends three home remedies to help stimulate and strengthen the brain naturally:

1. Learn a trade. One “recommendation to strengthen the brain is to stimulate the intraparietal groove, which is in charge of directing the coordination between the eye and the hand. A good method to achieve this is to learn juggling. This was determined by an investigation from the University of Oxford, which found that after 6 weeks the density of white matter increased, which is responsible for communicating to neurons. The same effect is also achieved, if you practice tennis or play the guitar, ”explains the site.

2. Reduce stress. When a person is stressed, the brain produces more of the hormone cortisol, which kills neurons. One of the solutions to this problem is to spend more time with family and friends.given that a scientific study found that people who have more social lives are less prone to chronic stress.

3. Take care of cholesterol. “Excess cholesterol can clog blood vessels in the brain and cause damage to brain tissue, which ultimately slows down the process of receiving and storing information. We recommend a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercise several times a week and stay away from high-fat foods,” the portal adds.

Foods to oxygenate and strengthen the brain

  • Walnuts are foods that contain essential fatty acids, omega-3 and vitamin E, which help strengthen the brain.
  • According to research published in Journal of Nutritionalso contain numerous phytochemicals that provide potential benefits to brain health.
  • Specifically, and according to the data in this publication, the polyphenolic compounds found in walnuts help reduce the oxidative and inflammatory load in brain cells. In addition, they favor interneuronal signaling and participate in neurogenesis.
  • Natural products like Ginkgo Biloba are not yet approved as a treatment for brain problems. However, its extracts have been tested, as they have benefits against cognitive decline and memory problems.
  • A publication of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine determined that the extract of Ginkgo Biloba may contribute to an improvement in the symptoms of age-associated cognitive decline.
  • One of the recent studies, published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine points out that maca has neuroprotective effects that, among other things, improve cognitive functions, motor coordination and resistance capacity.
  • However, as this research was done in rodents, more evidence is required.
