When we are in our twenties and strong we don’t think about our memory because it is sharp and who cares! We learn along the way without questioning ourselves, especially for children it comes naturally, no question asked.

Although our focus is not on memory, we have people around reminding us  ” You’re getting older etc. ” We are programmed to think that way even before we were born, we are on automatic pilot.


The potential of our brain is reached around 20 years old and start declining after that age. That is why we have to begin before birth to eat properly with all nutrients needed to keep our brain healthy as long as we can so that we can prevent diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Moreover, when the symptoms appear it is too late to prevent the disease because before the signs of it, the damage may have started 20 years ago prior to the onset.

In the past, a loss of brain function was supposed to be normal and unavoidable. Recently, we have been taught that our brains have “neural plasticity,” which means that our brain can re-wire after a stroke or a trauma.

As humans we wait until we have symptoms to do something about our brain health, prevention is better than cure.

Some signs to look at:

  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Brain fog
  • Difficulty learning
  • Anxiety
  • Tire easily
  • Low motivation
  • Difficulty to focus and concentrate
  • Fatigue in response to chemicals or foods


This is important to take control of our brain health not to wait for the doctor’s advice, we need to be in charge of it. I will share with you 7 ways to improve and keep your brain healthier and longer.

We have 2 periods of time in our lives to prevent losing neural connections.

  1. Before age nine, as the grey matter had develops by then.
  2. Before age 19, as the white matter had completely developed.

How to Improve our brain health

1 . Exercises

According to Dr. Johnny Bowden PhD, C.N.S. we can do only one thing and will change your brain health. It can be done at any age, it will pump up the power of our brain. Aerobic exercises will decrease brain loss and help your cognitive abilities. Also, it makes you happier & lives longer. 30 minutes a day is enough on a regular basis and set aside the time when you are at your best. Take a pedometer with you and do 10,000 steps a day. Even at your desk and do a sport you enjoy!

2 . Eat Smart

We know that antioxidants are very important for our brain cell connections, this is the key.

  • Lots of leafy greens
  • Lots and lots of colours
  • Whole grains, and legumes and lentils
  • Blueberries
  • Maintain the blood sugar level: eat regularly at 7:00am, 10:00am, 1:00am, 4:00pm, and 7:00am.  Eat foods high in fibre it slows down the digestion and keeps your blood sugar stable the whole day.  Reduce sugar intake and processed oils.
  • B Complex    15027790_688664344629968_2234197250351106796_n
  • Omega-3 fatty acids, CoQ10, Lecithin, and Vitamin E

3 . Improve Blood Flow

Our brain weighs  3 pounds but it demands 20 – 25% percent of the blood from each heartbeat. It is due to its high demand for oxygen. So that is why exercises are so important and the way we feed our brains can make a huge difference.

In addition, we can add Grape Seed Supplement Extract

The grape seed extract is one of the most powerful antioxidants containing called “polyphenols” over 50 times more powerful than Vitamin C or E.
With a supplement that contains grape seed extract, be sure of its property and purity of the product. The best extract is from the Chardonnay grape seed and it is one of the most potent forms of antioxidants.

4 – Use of products with Guarana Extract

Guarana is a little colourful berry native to the Amazon. When it ripens, the fruit splits and a small black seed emerges from it. Moreover, they provide more mental clarity and focus and increase memory functions.

5 – Training Our Brain

Although young people have more neurons, as opposed an older person has more branches.

What can cause a poor memory;

1. Disbelief, you don’t think that your brain is a remarkable organ so that you can’t improve which is not true.

2 . Disinterest, losing interest to do new things because you think that you are too old and so on. Learn new sports or musical instruments will help to increase your memory.

3 . Disuse of your brain, as they used to say; ” You don’t use it you lose it” and it is true, brain exercises are as crucial as physical exercises to keep your neural connections healthy.

6 – Keep Socializing

Sharing and telling our experiences, increase brain activity by stimulating some areas in the brain that provide for memory and learning.

7 – Stressing Less

Moderate stress like exercising for tests at school, playing chess, reviewing is considered necessary stress so your brain becomes stronger. However, prolonged stress creates confusion. We need to find our ability to laugh and not staying in chronic stress, listening to music and meditate whatever you like.

Enjoy your healthy lifestyle!
