Tips for maintaining and improving health of the brain

While there are still mysteries surrounding the fundamental treatment of memory, research has revealed the activities that can improve memory and promote overall brain health. John H. Byrne, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Texas Science the Faculty of Medicine of Houston (UTHealth), studies the mechanisms of neuronal and molecular, which are at the basis of learning and memory. Here are three tips that provides for the maintenance and improvement of the health of the brain.

1) Exercise

"Everyone knows that exercise is good for the heart, but what you may not know is that exercise also seems to be good for the brain," he said Byrne, June and Virgil Waggoner Chair. "There is much recent evidence that shows that the exercise itself promotes neurogenesis - the generation of new nerve cells in the brain. It had long been believed that once you lose nerve cells, had gone for good, and the brain cannot regenerate them, but exercise seems to inspire the brain's ability to generate nerve cells."

2) Diet

"There are certain" brain foods "that you seem to have an advantage on the brain," Byrne said. "New research indicates that Omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in salmon and other fish, can develop the gray matter of the brain. Food and drinks that are rich in antioxidants may also help keep the brain sharp. For brain food, consider a glass of red wine, some salmon, blueberries, a little bit of chocolate or a cup of green tea. The Food, indeed, can play a role in the health of the brain, but remember, everything in moderation. Research indicates that those who are obese have a higher incidence of Alzheimer's disease and other diseases that affect the brain. Staying slim appears to promote the health of the brain, so the exercise, watch your calories and eat the right kinds of foods."

3) Brain Activity

"Have you heard the saying," Use it or lose it. "True," Byrne said. Those who are active intellectual have a lower incidence of Alzheimer's. You have to exercise your brain cells just as you exercise your muscles, so you read a book or do a crossword puzzle. Those types of activities can protect your brain. There is also evidence that social activities help promote healthy brain. Interacting with other stimulates the brain."
