Once a person gets older, his brain function will gradually degenerate, and his memory will gradually decline. It is easy to forget, and he often loses his way, causing great troubles to normal life.
If these forgetfulness conditions are getting worse and worse, even when you forget the names of family and friends, you often forget to put salt in cooking, and you can’t find your way home when you go out, you should go to the hospital for an examination as soon as possible to determine the reason. So, what is best for the elderly to eat? Although the following five foods are relatively common, they are not common. They are "favored" by the brain and are very suitable for the elderly to help slow down the aging of the brain.
If the elderly want to make their brain healthier and aging slower, they can eat fish once or twice a week to help maintain brain vitality and improve memory.
Studies have found that fish meat helps control the degradation of middle-aged and old brain cells and delays aging. This is closely related to the lecithin, high-quality protein, calcium, and unsaturated fatty acid Omega-3 rich in fish meat. Especially salmon, herring, sardines, tuna deep-sea fish, contains Omega-3 is very rich.
Sesame is rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid and other small unsaturated fatty acids. Therefore, the elderly eat a spoonful of sesame every day, can provide the brain with sufficient unsaturated fatty acids, help delay brain aging and improve brain function.
Eggs are rich in high-quality protein and lecithin, so they can also enhance brain vitality and play a role in strengthening the brain. It is recommended that the elderly eat an egg a day. However, it should be noted that due to the high cholesterol content in egg yolks, people with high cholesterol can halve their consumption.
Soy is rich in nutrients, rich in high-quality protein required by the human brain, and 8 essential amino acids. Therefore, it helps to enhance cerebrovascular function and strengthen the brain.
Bananas can provide a large amount of tyrosine to the brain, which can make people energetic, concentrate, and improve creativity.
The above five foods can help the elderly to strengthen their brains. You can eat them in the same way as usual. Remember not to eat more at one time, otherwise you will lose the reward.
Of course, it is not enough to eat these brain-enriching foods often, and measures should be taken in various ways to strengthen the brain's functions, such as reading books and playing chess mentioned earlier. In addition, you should try to reduce things that damage brain function, such as staying up late; eating a lot of high-salt, high-sugar, lead-containing foods; using the brain too much.
In addition, there is a non-invasive, physical treatment that does not require medicine-a new type of brain light modulation therapy instrument. The head is irradiated with near-infrared light, passes through the brain to reach brain tissue, activates cell activity, improves brain active oxygen content and ATP production.
