10 Brain Exercises That Boost Memory

Not only muscles are losing their ability with the passage of time our brain also loses the ability to repair and regenerate the muscles due to the degeneration. Memory loss or slowing down of memory or other problems caused by the neurological damages and other problems caused by the process of aging can be withstood by our brain without appearing of any sign and symptoms over a large period of time. With the passage of time, it causes the brain more difficult to do mental tasks of routine. But as the weight which works in later life and makes muscles weaker in later life exercises are done to improve them just like neurologist and researchers believe that healthy exercises should be done to improve brain health and to increase brain ability to memorize anything.

The Healthy Brain: A Multifaceted Approach

A person having significant and different healthy behaviors help to reduce the risks associated memory loss and brain damage.  A study done on 2,235 men during 30 years in 2003 and published in PLOS, ONE  reveals the relation between mental health and  five unhealthy activities like smoking, no optimal body mass index (BMI),low intake of vegetables and fruit, irregular physical activities and high alcohol intake. Participants who do follow these activities are at about 60% more risk of developing memory disorders and thinking the ability of the brain.

11 Early Signs & symptoms of Dementia (memory loss or memory disorders):

Robert Bender, MD, medical director of the Johnny Orr Memory Center and Healthy Aging Institute in Des Moines, Iowa found a relation between brain health and healthy diet which has the low content of fat, cholesterol and high content of antioxidants.

Along with healthy diet, regular exercise helps to improve vascular health which in return protects brain muscles and tissues. Self-protection from stress and   restlessness is also important. Dr. Border tells that our brain always approaches to learn more new things. He notices that in some researcher’s works it is told that people who do not pay attention and learn from their surroundings are more likely to suffer from dementia. When person’s brain is in the constant passive state, brain loses its ability to regenerate, he also concluded. Due to these factors passive and unhealthy activities like sitting in front of TV for many hours can affect brain health.
