Train your brain – it’s an amazing organ
The brain is an amazing organ. Whether you are an executive running a business, a student facing exams, or a mum running a busy household, it is important to have mental focus and clarity, and the learning centre of your brain functioning at all times.
The brain is the centre of your nervous system, controlling thoughts, movements, memories and decisions.
Your brain is composed of about 100 billion neurons that send and receive information around the body.
Although it makes up just two per cent of your body’s weight, your brain uses around 20 per cent of the total oxygen and blood in your body.
When you’re awake, your brain produces enough electricity to power a small light bulb.
About 70,000 thoughts are created by your brain each day, and new brain connections are created every time you form a memory. When you learn something new, the structure of your brain changes.
Board games and puzzles are incredibly good exercise for your mind.
They can also relieve stress and keep you mentally balanced and socially connected. To enhance thinking and word skills, reading, writing, talking with people, learning a new language or trying something new can help to keep you on your toes and challenge your brain. As always, a healthy diet rich in protein and omega 3 fatty acids, as well as a good exercise and sleep regime, keeps your brain healthy.
For extra help, HealthZone Brain Zone supports brain cells and the healthy transfer of information for sharp focus, quick thinking, and learning ability. A calm and clearthinking mind also assists in reducing cortisol levels, which are often raised during mentally stressing times and can lead to weight issues.
Brain Zone contains phosphatidylserine, a naturallyoccurring phospholipid nutrient. It plays a supportive role in nerve centre function, nerve transmitter release, synaptic activity, and the conduction of electrical current. As the brain ages, phosphatidylserine levels decline, leading to deterioration of cell membranes. Brain Zone supports mental health in the elderly, and may also be helpful for children for mental clarity and focus.
