Chapter 2: Fine Tuning Your Mental Clarity on a Daily Basis
So where to start? How about with the mind, seeing as the mind leads and the body follows. If you can keep your brain sharp and your mind nimble, then you will be able to enjoy life in at least some capacity and maintain your dignity. What’s more though, is that a healthy mind will help to automatically give you a stronger and healthier body. Your mind controls your movements after all and this is the key to maintaining good biomechanics and muscle control.
So let’s take a look at the issues that you might struggle with in this department as you age and how you can keep those problems at bay…
Cognitive Decline With Old Age
The thing we most often associate with age-related cognitive decline is forgetfulness. When you reach a certain age, you start to forget where you left your keys a little more regularly and eventually you start to forget the names of your family. Just call everyone ‘Frank’, it’s easier.
Some degree of memory loss is fairly normal with age and is referred to as ‘age related cognitive decline’. However, in some cases it might take the more serious form of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The latter is caused by amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, which are caused by a build-up of protein fragments attaching to the cells. This can lead to confusion and severe memory loss, which we know as dementia or Alzheimer’s. In some cases, confusion and memory loss are exacerbated by damage to the brain caused by a stroke or traumatic brain injury.
But long before that, comes the slight tiredness and the brain fog. It’s almost imperceptible but it’s definitely there. Like a computer that takes just an extra minute or two to boot up. No one else would notice, but you know it’s not running on all cylinders anymore. Not like it used to.
Think back: how much harder is it to wake up in the morning than it was five years ago? Back then you would likely be out all night drinking with friends and then wake up the next day with energy to spare. It’s not your body that’s changed at this point: it’s your brain…
Or how about you think back even further (memory allowing…) to when you were just a little kid. Back then you could run around in circles for hours without ever tiring out. Likely you know kids who can still do the same thing. These days though, many of us struggle just climbing the stairs!
Constantly feeling tired is no fun and neither is having half the enthusiasm you used to have when you were younger – or the ability or the passion for learning. Notice how young people are always learning new skills, making new friends and changing careers and that gets harder as you age.
Oh and what about mood? Have you noticed how you’re just much angrier all the time these days? What once wouldn’t have caused us pause for thought now has us growling under our breaths like mad people. What happened to that youthful optimism? If you understand the ‘law of attraction’ then you’ll know how being angry all the time will only lead to fewer opportunities and less enjoyment. Apparently it’s at the age of 60 when these changes really occur.
So what’s actually happening inside that cranium of yours to cause all this change?
Increasing Brain Energy and Mood With Nutrition and Nootropics
There are many things that change in the brain and that are responsible for the changes we see in our abilities and our personalities. Many of these can be somewhat mitigated by the right nutrient and/or supplement regime however and when nutrients, herbs or medications are used in this way they’re referred to as ‘nootropics’ – compounds that can help to enhance brain performance.
Let’s start with that low energy – what causes this?
There are a couple of things, but up front is the decrease in mitochondria. As we’ve already discussed, your mitochondria are the tiny little fuel generators that live in all of your cells. Their job is to take glucose and to convert it to ATP, or Adenosine Triphosphate, the ‘energy currency of life’.
These mitochondria are found throughout our bodies and that includes the brain, where they live in the brain cells. If you’ve ever felt too tired or too lazy to complete a sum because it involves holding numbers in your working memory, then your ‘brain energy’ is letting you down.
And this is what makes it harder to find the enthusiasm to do anything as well. Another night of the same old TV it is then…
If you were to look at the cells of a young kid under the microscope and compare them with those of a middle aged man, you’d see that the middle aged man had far fewer mitochondria. Scientists now believe that this is one of the key differences in the energy levels of children versus adults. As it happens, this is also one of the key things that a lot of nootropics target. Ingredients ranging from l-carnitine, to PQQ, to Lutein, to creatine, to bitter orange work at least partially this way.
Another thing that affects brain energy as we get older is blood flow. Like every other part of your body, your brain needs a steady supply of blood to provide nutrients and oxygen for healthy function. Unfortunately, as your breathlessness upon reaching the top step will attest, our blood flow suffers as we age.
This is where vasodilators come in. Things like garlic extract, vinpocetine and ginkgo biloba all offer this increased energy by increasing the diameter of the blood vessels. This can also be very good for those with high blood pressure! These allow more blood, oxygen and nutrients to be directed toward the brain, helping you to feel more alert and more awake. As mentioned, you can also get a lot of benefit from nutrients like iron and B12 which help the body to create more red blood cells. This very simple change is very often enough to increase the amount of oxygen and nutrients making their way around the body to the brain and once again to supercharge your energy levels.Other Details
