Did you know that as you age your cognitive function will likely slow down? This can be intimidating for many people, but there is hope! We’ve put together some helpful tips on how to improve memory function as you age.
The brain can regrow and strengthen neurological pathways even as you age, which will increase your memory, intelligence and thoughts.
So how can we improve memory function and increase our cognitive ability?
Neurologists are finding that meditation, reading and complex problem solving can help your brain exercise and stay fit, similar to how one would use exercise to keep their muscles in shape, your brain benefits from exercise as well.
Also, what you put into your body can help (or hurt) your brain health. Here are some foods that can help keep your brain strong, healthy and improve memory function:
Blueberries – These little berries are known to be packed with antioxidants that will improve blood flow to the brain.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Used as a health food and beauty treatment, olive oil is good for you inside and out. It can improve brain concentration and slow your aging by mitigating free radicals and other toxins in the body.
Avocados – The healthy fats in avocados are super rich in Vitamin B’s, C’s, potassium and folate, which also improve blood flow to the brain.
Turmeric – The benefits of turmeric have been documented widely in recent years and it is known as a super herb for anti aging benefits. Turmeric is an anti inflammatory and assists in removing toxins in the blood. When paired with black pepper extract, it becomes 1000 times more effective by increasing the body’s absorption of the herb.
Bacopa Monnieri – Science consistently confirms that the Bacopa herb slows down, and even reverses, cognitive decline. It protects the brain and boosts memory and concentration. Bacopa can also increase exercise stamina by supplying the muscles and brain with more oxygen. It enhances pineal gland function as well, leading to higher intuition and creativity. Bacopa is the main ingredient in Nambu’s Hi-Memory Formula.
Bacopa benefits the brain by balancing levels of neurotransmitters and stress hormones, thus improving cognitive and mental health. Neurotransmitters are chemicals brain cells use to communicate with each other. Bacopa’s domain includes dopamine, serotonin and acetylcholine. Neurotransmitters can affect your karma. Karma is translated as “Action”. Our actions are decided by our thoughts and emotions. Neurotransmitters affect mood, appetite, addictive compulsions, energy, libido, motivation and more. They control your ability to focus, concentrate, learn, remember and turn off your mind when it’s time to relax and go to sleep. How well neurotransmitters work will affect these behaviors and moods. Tuning your neurotransmitters and the chemicals that control them will definitely help you control your Actions and thus control Your Karma.
Bacopa is a master neurotransmitter regulator that dials their production up or down as needed.
SInce the brain is a “receiver” of thoughts, and both brain and body absorb karma, Nambu Botanicals has produced phoneme infusedtm (sound vibration), enlivened herbs to help filter thoughts and allow high energy, healthy thoughts. This is a tradition that goes back to the ancient Siddha Yogis.
Bacopa boosts your intuition amd may help you to think more unconventionally. Bacopa is also a nootropic that increases memory, powers the brain with oxygen, boosts concentration and focus, decreases stress and makes it hard to forget newly learned information. Allow two to six weeks for all these effects to peak.
