A Google A Day – Keeps the Doctor Away

Browsing through my local newspaper this morning I noticed the word “Google” and anything about Google usually gets my attention.

The article (from Manly Daily Sat Oct 18 2008) was about recent research by a team of scientists from University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and published in the latest edition of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.

The study found that searching the internet stimulates brain activity in the elderly and middle-aged and helps to keep their minds sharp.  The UCLA scientists found that searching the web triggers key centers in the brain that control decision making and complex reasoning and may help stimulate and possibly improve brain function.

Dr Gary Small, the principal investigator of the study, said “The study results suggest that computer technologies may have physiological effects and potential benefits for middle-aged and older adults”.

The study’s authors noted that their findings are the latest to suggest that complex activity that keeps the mind engaged, such as crossword puzzles, may keep the brain healthy.

Love Your Brain – Empower Your Life

Without a properly functioning brain we are in serious trouble, we just can’t live up to our full potential. Your brain works on the principle “use it or lose it”. Despite what you may have heard, you really can grow new brain cells.


Your brain need care and attention just like the rest of your body. So, how can you achieve an improvement in your brain power?

Think of your brain as an electrical circuit board, with an ability to constantly have new circuits installed, and existing ones to be reinforced.

So what are the building blocks of improved brain power? One is physical, the other mental exercise.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS

Keeping your body properly hydrated with energized living water is very important. However, you may not be aware that the single MOST important element crucial for the development and maintenance of healthy brain function is LECITHIN? It is a nutritional building block for the synthesis of the brain’s primary memory neurotransmitter.

Neurotransmitters function as brain messengers that enable the brain cells to “communicate” with each other. When neurotransmitter levels decline, the brain cells are unable to “communicate” efficiently with each other. This means that previously stored information (”memory”), cannot be recalled easily. Your “recall” ability weakens, causing fuzzy memory and mental tiredness in high-stress situations.

Lecithin is essential for mental development and maintenance. Lecithin is inexpensive and easy to consume.

What’s the Big Deal About Lecithin? – Part 4 – Brain Boosters

Some of the important nutrients which are able to assist in boosting your ability to memorise and concentrate are:-

  • B Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • Ginko biloba and some other herbs

However, are you aware the single MOST important element crucial for the development and maintenance of healthy brain function is LECITHIN?

The active ingredient in lecithin is phospatididylcholine. It is a nutritional building block for the synthesis of the brain’s primary memory neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.

Neurotransmitters function as brain messengers that enable the brain cells to “communicate” with each other. When neurotransmitter levels decline, the brain cells are unable to “communicate” efficiently with each other. This means that previously stored information (“memory”), cannot be recalled easily. Your “recall”ability weakens, causing fuzzy memory and mental tiredness in high-stress situations.

The result is a person is likely to suffer from poor concentration and diminished ability to retain and recall information.

Therefore lecithin is essential for mental development and maintenance.
