Want To Improve Brain Memory? Consume Vitamin
You'll often forget something? If yes, consume vitamin. :)
The brain is an organ of vital importance. because one function of the brain is to remember. And you may experience memory loss due to various things, including the age factor. But forgetfulness that signifies decreased memory function in the brain can be prevented with some vitamins and other essential nutrients. Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin E, and vitamin D is a nutrient that is needed to maintain mental function and memory. A recent study has proven it.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin B, Vitamin C
This nutrient is very important, because the fatty acids is essential for normal metabolism and can not be synthesized by the body. Vitamin B is a group of water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in cell metabolism. Vitamin C is water soluble vitamin necessary for growth and development
Vitamin D and Vitamin E
This vitamin helps the body absorb calcium. Calcium and phosphate are two minerals that are essential for normal bone formation. Vitamin E is fat-soluble antioxidant that stops the production of reactive oxygen species are formed when fat is oxidized.
In a study involving 104 men and women, scientists have measured the levels of nutrients in 104 men and women, with average age was 87 years old. The scientists also conducted brain scans to determine brain volume. It also provided six common tests used to assess mental function.
The results of these studies found that people with the highest blood levels of 4 vitamins are, judged to have cognitive test results are higher and have a larger brain volume compared with participants who had low vitamin levels.
While the trans fat content is higher in the blood, were significantly associated with impaired mental ability and brain volume is smaller. Consumption of trans fats also increase the risk of coronary heart disease by raising levels of LDL cholesterol and lower HDL cholesterol levels.
Well, from now on you get used to eating healthy foods, like fish, fruits, vegetables, and stay away from trans fats
