Your “Grey Matter” matters!
Your brain is a wonder of nature, an incredible multi-faceted organ, all of which works collectively to keep you alive, participate in and make sense of the world you live in. The benefits of a healthy functioning brain are black and white, it is essential to enable you to live a long, healthy and fulfilling life; and it’s never too late (or too early) to take steps to maintain a healthy brain.
5 Easy Steps to Optimise Brain Health
Take care of your heart
What’s good for your heart is good for your brain: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and obesity have all been associated with higher rates of declining brain health and increased risk of dementia. Healthy blood vessels support a healthy brain and thinking skills.
There is good evidence that regular physical activity gives brains a healthy boost. Regular exercise is associated with better brain function and reduced risk of cognitive decline. Any exercise is better than none, and regular physical activity on most days is best.
Mentally challenge yourself
Use it or lose it! Scientists have found that learning new activities or skills helps build new brain cells and strengthen the connections in the brain. Whether its learning a new language, a new sport or a new hobby, or doing puzzles, challenge yourself mentally and keep learning.
“Let food be thy medicine”. Your brain needs a range of nutrients to function properly, and evidence indicates that a balanced diet may help maintain brain health and functionality. For example the healthy Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish have been linked to a number of positive benefits for brain health.
Most humans are social animals and prefer company to isolation. Social engagement has been found to be beneficial for cognitive function, as well as vascular condition and mood. Social activities that combine both mental and physical activity such as dancing or team sports, provide even greater positives for brain health.
What about health supplements for the brain?
There are numerous natural ‘nootropic’ substances that may help support brain health and mental clarity. While there are no ‘magic bullets’, as more research is done, the efficacy of these ingredients is becoming clearer. Sanderson have reviewed much of the available research and developed a complex of what we believe are a group of nootropic nutrients with good evidence for supporting brain health, and in particular, mental clarity and focus and cognitive functions.
