Mind, Mood and Memory Boost From The Right Kind of Nutrition

Obesity is causes the cognitive decline and brain fog due to levels of inflammation and ultimately shrinkage of critical brain areas like the hippocampus. Our hippocampus is responsible for critical memory and mood functions of our brain, and proper nutrition can improve your function in all of these areas. We need to be able to heal nerve endings, regenerate new nerve cells, and decrease proteins that clog the function of the brain.  It’s not completely clear as to how to do this for each of us as we all have unique genetics that contribute to these functions. but many experts agree on key facts. The neurodegenerative, vascular and metabolic factors of disordered nutrition cause the gut inflammation, the loss of immune function, and the inability to shield ourselves from toxins and become the reasons for early onset dementia and cognitive decline for those who have increased central obesity, increased hip to waist ratio, and who are obese. Losing weight is helpful, but not the ultimate solution to improving health, changing your body’s levels of inflammation are the solution. Conversely if you change your body’s inflammation levels and improve the health of your gut biology and the microorganisms that live there, you will lose weight while improving your mood and memory.  Aging also complicates the picture and makes you more susceptible to the factors that cause the inflammatory factors that interfere with thinking. As you enter your 4th, 5th and 6th decade you can be mindful of these forces and take steps to reverse them. Any additional factors that causes dysbiosis: the presence of a disordered microbiome, most of which is in your gut. A few ways you can improve your nutrition: 1. avoid GMO products that have been exposed to very toxic pesticides, 2. Minimize antibiotic exposure and increase probiotic consumption if you have to have an antibiotic 3. Use dietary strategies to decrease your cholesterol as using medications has been associated with increased rates of diabetes and it’s complications 4. Enrich your diet with fermented foods such as kombucha, yogurt, kimchi  5. Enrich your diet with prebiotic fiber (jicama, dandelion greens, chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, garlic, 6. Healthy fat, and for most of us who aren’t active to always consume all the calories we would need for vitamins, consider supplements.
