Did You Know that Brain Games May Help Prevent Dementia?

Memory is the fabric of our souls. It enables us to recall the major events in our lives. Memory also provides us with a sense of purpose that gives our lives meaning.

Our memory is so integral to who we are that it’s easy to take it for granted. Yet when memory risk factors like high stress, lack of sleep, and a bad diet aren’t addressed, they can lead to memory loss and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

With an ever-expanding elderly population in America, dementia is a growing disease that, sadly, has no known cure. However, effective treatments have helped many improve their cognition and memory well into their later years.

Follow these four steps to boost your memory and decrease the risk of developing cognitive impairment and dementia:

It’s Your Choice

Did you know that in spite of the natural aging process, you actually have a choice in how fast your brain ages? Your behavior and habits can speed up or slow down the rate at which your brain declines with age. Being mentally and physically active, eating nutritious foods and avoiding unhealthy habits can help you maintain optimal brain health and ward off dementia.

Memory Boosting Foods

Research has shown that some foods can boost cognitive function, memory and alertness, while other foods may actually increase a person’s risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. The Standard American Diet (appropriately abbreviated as SAD) is filled with pro-inflammatory foods that increase your risk for diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. Instead of eating foods high in sugar and fat, reach for memory boosting foods like broccoli, walnuts, blueberries, salmon and spinach. These foods are rich in protective nutrients that will help boost your brain and prevent memory loss.

Become a Lifelong Learner

One of the keys to keeping your brain young is to continually engage in new learning. Since your brain is like a muscle—the more you use it, the stronger it gets. When you learn something, new neural connections are created, which improves your capacity to remember. On the other hand, when you stop learning, cognitive performance suffers as the internal connections in your brain begin to break apart.

Play Brain Games

Although it’s been well-documented that brain training can improve concentration, visual-spatial acuity, and coordination, there’s been no evidence to suggest that mental exercise can reduce the risk of chronic memory issues…until now. A new study has revealed that brain training exercises can help to prevent dementia. At BrainFitLife, our brain gym includes 34 brain games that stimulate different areas of the brain and have multiple skill levels that help you grow as you go. Online brain-training games are a terrific way to have fun while getting your brain into tiptop shape. Spend just 15 minutes a day doing these energizing games, and your brain will start processing better and faster.

The best part of brain games is that anyone at any age can benefit from them. BrainFitLife has developed a personalized online training plan specifically to your brain type to improve your memory, mood, energy and focus. Although getting older is unavoidable, aging is optional. To learn more about how Brain Games can improve your memory and reduce the risk of dementia, visit us at BrainFitLife.

    I do these things already, so I’m good. 🙂

    Are yogurt and muesli brain food or are they junk? [J(am), U(nclean), N(eural), K(ill)].
    I eat a bowl with one half cup raw muesli and organic yogurt (milk and probiotics) each morning. I want to know if this is a great choice or if there are better ones.

      Hi, yoghurt from which milk? Cows? Sheep? Read what Dr Mercola writes why cow’s milk isn’t good for humans. Sheep, goat’s milk can be better.
      In which climate do you live? For countries like Ireland warm breakfast is better, and cooked meals. Raw foods, fresh juices especially from fruits picked when they’re still unripe, then travelling thousands km aren’t as beneficial as one may think. I like what Dr Andreas Moritz says about it. He is an Ayurveda master.
      Do you have enough micro elements? They can be most re important then vitamins.
      You posted a different question, but how can I answer properly if don’t know who is asking, what’s your health state, etc. Please, see Dr Tent’s lecture ‘Mineral Crisis of America’,. D Robert Morse and Barbara O’Neill are wonderful naturopath’s. I wish you best of luck with finding out what is most beneficial for you. You can self study or find some nutritionist, it’s worth it.

      P.S. ‘Wheat Belly’ is a great book explaining what’s wrong with wheat today and what we can eat.
      Sauerkraut, cucumber in brine are eaten from Germany to Korea. Kimchi is a national dish in Korea. It’s good for our good bacterias in our guts. Please, don’t forget we have a second brain in our guts.
