We often associate memory loss with ageing but memory lapses are normal and should not be considered in most cases warning signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s. While forgetfulness is common among older adults this age related memory change is not the same as dementia. Scientific research now tells us that the brain is capable of producing new brain cells at any age. The new science of Neuroplasticity has produced many case studies proving the brains capability of repairing and producing new neurons (nerve cells in the brain).
Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Norman Doidge high lights many of these cases in his bestselling book “The Brain that Changes Itself”. This new scientific understanding of how the brain works has allowed for new approaches that use memory maintenance programs to improve common memory loss, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) even Alzheimer’s disease which is another type of dementia. As the saying goes there is nothing new under the sun, natural herbs and spices have been used to improve memory and the overall well-being of the brain in Asia and Africa for centuries; the following three are the best known
While studying to become a certified Ayurvedic practitioner I learned that bacopa Monnieri a natural brain tonic made from the Bacopa plant could be used to improve memory, nerve cell repair and mental focus. Ayurveda is a natural healing science who’s foundation is in Eastern India where bacopa is also known as Brahmi, after Brahma the creator God of the Hindu pantheon. History tells us that ancient Vedic scholars used the Bacopa herb to help them memorize lengthy sacred hymns and scriptures. Bacopa Monnieri is also used a blood pressure regulator and to treat Epilepsy, Asthma, Ulcers and Inflammations.
Huperzine is a natural memory remedy extract taken from the Firmoss plant which can be found in India and Southen Asia. In China practitioners of Chinese medicine use Huperzine to fight Alzhemers disease it is also used for age related memory repair, and to prevent or slow cognitive decline as the brain ages. Studies have shown that Huperzine has the ability to increase blood flow to the brain, a leading cause of memory loss is a decrease of blood flow to the brain.
Saffron Extract a spice made from the Crocus Sativus plant, has long been a spice used to improve memory, and to address depression, Asthma and Insomnia. Saffron studies have shown that the extract has also been successful in weight loss, improvement of mental fatigue, mood, stress, forgetfulness and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
If you would like to improve your memory, alertness, mental focus and the over-all maintenance of your brain like most muscle strength you have to use it or lose it. Productive options can be meditation and energy movement exercises like Tai Chi, Ki movements and Qi Gone can be helpful.
I also recommend “Total Recall”, a memory booster natural supplement formula made with Bacopa Monnieri, Huperzine, saffron Extract and Korean Red Ginseng. If you visit www.nowuno.info you can learn more about and even purchase this amazing memory maintenance natural product.
