【#Vivien Yeo’s Beauty & Lifestyle】Does the brain also need anti-aging? From diet to brain training, seize the golden period of brain health!
In addition to skin, the brain also needs anti-aging. The ages of 30-40 are considered the golden period for brain health because the body and brain start to age, and physiological functions gradually decline, leading to aging of the body. At the same time, factors such as increased stress and workloads can also lead to brain fatigue. Therefore, we should pay more attention to our brain health, cultivate good eating habits and engage in some brain training to maintain the health of our brains.
I usually start by improving my diet and regularly consuming some brain-boosting foods：
Blueberries contain abundant antioxidants, especially anthocyanins and flavonoids. These antioxidants can reduce the damage caused by free radicals to brain cells, prevent brain aging, and protect against nerve cell damage. In addition, they can increase blood flow, improve memory, promote neuronal connections, and enhance cognitive function and attention. Therefore, I drink 2.5 cups of blueberry juice every day, which helps to fight against oxidation, improve memory, and prevent brain and nerve aging.
Nuts (including almonds, cashews, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts)
Nuts are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, especially omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These fatty acids are crucial for the normal function of the brain and nervous system. They can improve cognitive ability and memory, as well as protect nerve cells and prevent some neurological diseases. Nuts also contain abundant protein and antioxidants, which can protect cells from free radical damage, which is important for brain, body development, and nervous system health. Studies have shown that regular consumption of nuts can enhance key brain wave frequencies related to cognitive, learning, and memory functions. I also recommend eating about a handful of nuts as a snack every day, which is beneficial and healthy.
Bananas are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, tryptophan, and sugar. Potassium is crucial for the normal function of the brain and nervous system. It regulates heart rate and blood pressure and enhances nerve cell conductivity and regulates muscle contraction. Vitamin B6 helps the brain produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates physiological functions such as mood and sleep and is also known as the "happy hormone". Tryptophan is a substance that can regulate mood and promote sleep, helping the brain to relax and stay healthy. Sugar provides energy for the brain, keeping it active and focused. Therefore, I eat one banana every day to promote gut health and maintain brain health.
Reading for half an hour a day
Reading requires focusing attention on text and content, which helps promote activity in different regions of the brain and connections between neurons, while also improving cognitive and memory function. It trains analytical, reasoning, and problem-solving skills while also cultivating imagination and creativity. Reading for half an hour each day is very beneficial for brain health, as it not only improves brain activity, thinking, and language skills, but also helps reduce stress and anxiety, and maintain brain health.
Playing with educational toys
As a mother now, I spend time playing educational games with my children to promote their brain development. Educational toys are the best tools for developing the right brain, and playing such games not only exercises thinking skills, but also helps to cultivate more flexible and innovative thinking, and improve problem-solving skills, and resilience. Therefore, I make sure to spend time with my children every day playing educational games, which not only helps with their brain development but also helps to keep my brain active and healthy.
In addition to adults needing to keep their brains healthy, it is also important for children to have good brain development as they grow older. The small-molecule amino acids in YUSAIKA ORGANIC DRIP CHICKEN ESSENCE can be converted into effective nutrients, help relax the brain, maintain focus and clarity, and promote cognitive development. YUSAIKA ORGANIC DRIP CHICKEN ESSENCE can also aid brain development, promote growth and repair of tissues, and can be consumed by both adults and children.
