The researchers perform a series of experiments looking at the impact of various stress and foods that can affect our brain. They discovered that such stress creates more myelin-producing cells, but fewer neurons than normal. The result of this disruption is an excess of myelin in certain areas of the brain, which interferes with the timing and balance of communication. The researchers found that stress can also have negative effects on the brain. Amongst the organs within the human anatomy, the brain stands out to be arguably the most complex going by its functions. The brain does vital functions like controlling body temperature, controlling body hormones vital for other processes, and ensuring lucid memory. Minus the brain, human beings can barely live and are akin to walking corpses hence if not well handle our stress it can easily kill new neurons in our brain. Also, people are usually made oblivious of the actions they involve themselves in that may slowly and silently kill their brains. Most of such actions that kill the brain generally stem from someone's lifestyle. and their life events. Therefore, in this article am going to take you through some of the things that might be slowly killing your brain that you are not aware of.
1 Through smoking
When a person smokes, nicotine reaches the brain within about ten seconds. At first, nicotine improves mood and concentration, decreases anger and stress, relaxes muscles that eventually reduce appetite. Long-term smoking of cigarettes has adverse effects on the brain. In accordance with medical research, the habit makes the brain retreat in size over time. The retreat in size leads to a reduction in memory and raises one's susceptibility to contracting diabetes and dementia that affect functioning due to damage of the brain exceeding what might be caused by aging.
2 less sugar consumption
Elevated blood glucose harms blood vessels. Blood vessel damage is the major cause of the vascular complications of diabetes, leading to other problems, such as damage to blood vessels in the brain and eyes causing retinopathy. Foods with high sugar contents are often loathed in this era as they are associated with lifestyle diseases like obesity and diabetes which are common. On the flip side, too much abstinence from sugary meals may pose more harm than good for your brain. Therefore, your brain needs some optimal supply of glucose for it to function optimally.
3 consumption of too much junk meals
Eating too much junk food such as French fries, pizza, and burgers, seems to make this neurological appetite regulation stop working, researchers have found. A diet rich in junk food can affect the hippocampus in as little as a week or in a number of days. Junk meals are foods rich in excess processed sugars. Consumption of such a line of foods in excess is directly related to the retardation of brain parts that are responsible for memory. Always prefer vegetables and fruits to junk food for the best brain health.
4 Getting less sleep
Does poor Sleeping Affect the Brain? Without sleep, the brain struggles to function properly. Because they don't have time to recuperate, neurons become overworked and less capable of optimal performance in numerous types of thinking. Many people have different chores that sometimes deprive them of enough sleep. Less sleep or rather interrupted sleep pattern will increase your susceptibility to suffering from dementia. It also increases your susceptibility to suffering from heart problems. You can enhance your sleeping patterns by desisting from alcohol intake and coffee consumption just before retiring to bed. Just you are requested to sleep well.
