2. DHA from Fish and : While the brain’s main energy source is glucose, it’s building blocks are primary comprised of fatty acids, more specifically, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA makes up 70% of myelin, the protective sheath that lines active, communicating neurons. Without an abundance of DHA available, brain cell communication stands to be significantly compromised, inhibiting recall and jeopardizing brain health.

3. Crossworld Puzzles and Brain Teasers: Crossword puzzles and brain teaser exercises keep parts of the brain active that may otherwise fall into a rut.

    You missed one………sex.

    Orgasms can do a body (and a brain) good.

    A new study from Rutgers has found that orgasm can actually increase brain activity. The researchers used an fMRI machine to measure blood flow to different parts of the brain, and then they had the study participants engage in a variety of activities from crossword puzzles to self-stimulation. They found that while certain mental exercises (such as crossword puzzles or Sudoku puzzles) can increase activity in parts of the brain, only orgasm could increase activity across the entire brain. In other words, self-stimulation and orgasm actually had more positive mental benefits than “cerebral” activities like puzzle-solving!

    The Rutgers study is just one of many that have studied the potential benefits of sexual satisfaction. Other studies have found that orgasms are beneficial because they help to improve circulation, burn calories, promote better sleep, alleviate pain, improve mood, and decrease stress. Hence, not only does sex feel good, it’s actually good for you…both physically and mentally as this new research shows.
