Brain Power

The brain is perhaps the most important organ affected by aging, since it consumes more energy than any other organ of the body. An energy deficit in the brain and central nervous system affects the activities of organs throughout the body as well as memory, attention and focus, and mood.

The brain is highly sensitive to oxidative, free radical damage, which is the most common reason for brain decline. Foods high in antioxidants counter that damage and protect the brain. “Brain starvation” is another common cause of mental decline. The brain’s dietary requirements are extremely high – feeding it with the protective nutrients it needs will cause it to perform better.

Memory
Memory loss and brain aging are a natural part of getting older. No matter how “normal” memory lapses may be, that doesn”t make them any less frustrating. Experts agree that the best way to keep your brain fit is to keep using it. Four things to keep your brain sharp include: mental activity, physical fitness, stress reduction, and a healthy diet.

Mood
How consistent is your energy and how happy are you? How sharp is your mind and how balanced is your mood? – and what if anything, do these qualities have to do with what you put in your mouth?

Feel-good substances surround us. Many of us eat chocolate, drink coffee, tea, energy drinks, or chug caffeinated, sugary soft drinks. Then there are those who smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, or take recreational drugs. On top of this, millions of people take antidepressants and sleep aids on a daily basis.

Do these substances work? Obviously they do, or they wouldn’t be so popular. They boost energy, relieve anxiety, and help us recover from a hard days work. The highs that many of these substances give us can disappear all too quickly, and leave us coping with a nasty aftermath. Mood swings, depletion, exhaustion and even addiction can result from all that popping, pouring and puffing.
