Tips for Memory Loss!
Are you losing your keys or forgetting why you entered a room? Such experiences can happen to us sometimes, but can happen more and more frequently with age – often because our minds are elsewhere…
It is not uncommon for each one of us to sometimes stop talking abruptly in the middle of a sentence, desperate to find a movie title or its main actor – that we had in mind a nanosecond earlier…
"Normal" Memory Loss
If your memory plays this kind of trick too, rest assured – specialists will tell you that it is not a sign of dementia.
This phenomenon is in fact an "attention problem". Therefore, the more we try to remember a movie title, a name, etc., the more it tends to disappear. Even though it happens more frequently as we get older, it happens because we usually have no real interest in knowing "the-name-of-the-guy-in-the-movie-with-the-silly-blond-who-were-in-a-car-chase".
A Quick Solution
The best solution is to change topic – the information you were looking for will come back eventually, and probably randomly.
Best to Prevent
It is possible to improve your memory and prevent memory loss.
1. Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo Biloba helps body circulation by carrying blood and oxygen wherever the body needs it, especially to the brain.
2. Active Mind
Active Mind has been scientifically proven to prevent hippocampus deterioration. It can also prevent toxic proteins accumulation that are responsible for neuron’s death and cognitive impairment. According to studies, Active Mind has reduced hippocampal degradation by 68%, which improves memory, comprehension and verbal skills to people with Alzheimer’s disease.
3. Lion's Mane
This fantastic specimen can be found in forests and cliffs around the world. New studies found that Lion’s Mane provides constant support to the brain and nervous system. Recent research indicates that Lion’s Mane Warm Water / Alcohol Extract stimulates Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) synthesis and helps myelination process.
Finally, you will probably get better scores in a memory or brain capacity test if you maintain a good lifestyle:
- Exercise regularly (at least 30 minutes of brisk walking five days a week).
- Maintain a healthy weight (BMI between 19 and 25).
- Avoid smoking.
- Take care of your health: Prevent or treat Hypertension, Hypercholesterolemia and Type 2 Diabetes – all of which contribute to memory loss by impairing blood circulation in the most blood-thirsty part of the body: the brain.
According to research, adopting a healthy lifestyle during your 40s will also reduce your risk of dementia later in life.
What You Need to Know…
Let’s face it: One of the biggest barriers of taking preventative measures against dementia is that we are almost all convinced that it will never concern us – but in fact, dementia affects one "other" person of 20, aged of 65 and over. But, if we develop dementia, we will obviously not be aware of it…
According to Sube Banerjee, Professor of Mental Health and Ageing at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, dementia is such a global health problem and the amount of money spent on patient’s treatments are so high that "if dementia was a business rather than an illness, it would be the most prosperous in the world".
No One Is Immune!
According to Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), 35.6 million people in the world suffer from dementia and by 2050, this number will exceed 115 million. We can not ignore this situation – I got proof last week myself. Ironically, the day after a presentation on dementia, I entered a yoga session with my gym bag… Empty.
Obviously, I had good reasons: I was too busy looking at my phone and looking for my keys while I was packing – or not – my bag. But that is not really an excuse. The only thing that comforted me when I was painfully trying to perform my Sun Salutation, stuck in my jeans and tunic, is that, at least, my yoga session would help me to clear my mind. Things could only get better!
