Everyone has the ability to grow new brain cells according to Sandrine Thuret, neuroscientist. He offers advice on how to enhance the neurogenesis, better the mood, strengthen the memory, and slow down age-related decline. The human brain can be fixed through the growth of the brain cells.
What in fact is neurogenesis?
Our brain is created of brain regions and neurogenesis is the creation of new brain cells and happened after prenatal development. This process is believed to proceed in adulthood as well in two regions of the brain, known as sub ventricular and the hippocampus. New brain cells can be of great aid in treating Alzheimer’s and depression.
Growing New Brain Cells
According to newest study walking for 45 minutes on a daily basis may elevate the chance of new hippocampus tissues and other studies indicate that regular workout is highly beneficial for neurogenesis and it may also decrease the chance of Alzheimer’s.
If you eat blueberries on a regular basis, you will encourage neurogenesis, but also better your mood and cognition. Blueberries are rich in flavonoids and do not contain a lot of sugar. Balanced blood sugar levels are known to trigger neurogenesis.
Fast and avoid caloric foods
This can elevate the risk of loss of brain cells.
You should include turmeric to your daily diet
A substance found in turmeric and ginger, curcumin is known to encourage the growth of brain cells and this has been backed up by scientific studies with animals. Curcumin lower the brain-derived neurotrophic expression factor that is pivotal for a variety of brain functions.
You should increase the intake of omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids elevate the creation of new brain cells. Add wild-caught fish to your diet to benefit from them.
You should drink more green tea
Neurogenesis is supported by by the EGCG compound present in green tea.
You should eat dark chocolate
It is believed that 70 percent cacao chocolate support longevity and it also contributes to the growth of new brain cells due to being rich in flavonoids.
