You Can Grow New Brain Cells
Did you know that you can grow new brain cells even as an adult? Neural stem cell researcher, Sandrine Thuret, discusses how you can help promote neurogenesis in your brain.
Neurogenesis is a fancy term for the growth of new brain cells. So how can we promote the growth of new brain cells?
- Learning – Never stop learning!
- Sex, Running (or physical activity that gets your heart pumping and oxygen circulating to the brain)
- Diet – Eating omega-3s, blueberries and other healthy foods. Also restricting your calories promotes neurogenesis.
What to avoid? Sleep deprivation, stress are two big ones!
