11) Keep a Healthy Diet
Memory tablets are not advisable to students. However, the formula of a healthy tablet may be a good guide to have such ingredients from natural food. Your brain cell membrane is always exposed to oxygen free radicals that cause injury to cells. If you would plan for losing weight, it would not be right to completely avoid oil and fat, as they are good solutes to prevent tissue damages. For example, having Salmon in your diet promotes the level of omega-3 fatty acids, which scavenges oxygen free radicals and protects your brain cells. Unsaturated fats and High density lipids are good for health. Avoid having food prepared from saturated fatty acids. You can also listen to your dietician and plan your menu instead of opting for memory enhancing tablets available in the market. Your brain is composed of fatty acids, memory is improved only when neural pathways are built to tap the information centers and retrieve the information. The myelin sheath is a fat over sensory neurons, which builds the neural pathways during the process of learning and memorizing. Smoking in the student life is common but try to avoid this habit to protect your brain cells from getting damaged. Too much of anything is good for nothing. Avoid having coffee frequently as it would leave you jittery and nervous distracting you from steady concentration and memory. The best healthy fluids for your body and mind are fresh juice, unflavored water, unsweetened teas, and, in small amounts, juices without additional sugar. A fun fact about brain boosting foods: in Germany, university cafeterias and supermarkets sell assorted nut and raisin mixes, calling them “student food,” not only because the contents make a wonderful snack to tide over long study sessions, but because nuts contain natural healthy fats like the aforementioned omega-3 oils and more. There’s a good reason why a walnut looks like a brain, after all.
