Neuroscientist, Sandrine Thuret, found that every human being can grow new neurons. The research that she has conducted allowed her to support neurogenesis, increase the formation of memory, enhance the mood, and reduce the possibility of related decline.
In fact, the brain can be actually “fixed”, which actually proves that the lost brain cells could be re-grown.
Learn more about Neurogenesis
The brain is separated in different regions. Neurogenesis is actually the process in which the brain cells are developed. This process usually is active during pre-natal development, but in fact there are two regions of the brain where the neurogenesis has found that continue to develop during adulthood. These two regions are called sib ventricular and the hippocampus.
Back in 1962 and 1963, Joseph Altman had made a groundbreaking discovery in neurogenesis. In that time neurogenesis has been overlooked until 1990s when the mainstream research began to look at neurogenesis as possibility and priority. The learning about memory have been directly linked to the brain function and the growth of the new brain cells.
Some of the neuronal effects have been found to be in stress regulation and in the beneficial mechanisms of certain antidepressants. Due to this the new brain cells are directly linked to areas of Alzheimer’s and depression.
Learn how to grow new brain cells:
These methods are not expensive and you can do it yourself. You will only need to maximize the cognitive potential and support neurogenesis.
Regular exercise – you will need to walk every day in order to stimulate the neurogenesis. According to different studies, 45 minutes of walking on daily basis can help you grow new hippocampal tissue. Also they have found that regular exercising can help you decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s
Reduce the consumption of calories – you can try and fast or minimize the intake of calories in order to allow the brain to remain alive for longer period of time. You should consume turmeric, or practice intermittent fasting in order to stimulate new brain cells growth.
Consume blueberries – You should consume more blueberries in order to improve your mood and cognitive function. Also it helps you because it contains flavonoids that are great food for the brain. Also try to keep the sugar consumption at minimum in order to support neurogenesis.
Consume curcumin – you will need to consume curcumin on daily basis in order to stimulate the brain growth. Curcumin is actually found in turmeric and it is associated with neurogenesis in animal studies. Different studies have confirmed that this ingredient elevate the brain derived from neurotrophic factor expression.
Consume omega-3 fatty acids/eat wild fish – Docosahexaenoic acid is extremely effective and contains high amount of omega-3 fatty acids. Also it helps you support neurogenesis. Different studies have shown the DHA can help neurogenesis so you should consume wild-caught fish or increase the omega-3 fatty acids supplements on daily basis.
Green tea – you will need to consume green tea on regular basis in order to stimulate neurogenesis. The compound called EGCG (epigallocatechingallate) found in green tea is directly linked to the growth of new cells. This claim has been confirmed by different studies, which proved that the brain cells grow faster when consumed green tea.
Here are some of the side effects of growing new brain cells:
Neurogenesis actually has positive impact on the brain health. Different specialists have stated that too much neurogenesis can have negative effects when compared to other neurogenesis.
Also the new born neurons that have been stimulated through the process of neurogenesis can die in 14 days. Due to this process, new neurons will migrate to the molecular layer that has been formed.
In case you have very poor diet, you should know that these methods will not do any benefits for you, so you should take into consideration consuming healthy diet.
