Easy Tips to increase your mood, sex drive and memory from Nikki Warren Naturopath and the Founder of NaturoBest
1. Combat stress
Strategies to decrease stress include yoga, meditation mindfulness, deep breath exercises and sex.
2. Start to exercise
Regular aerobic exercise can increase the size of the hippocampus, a brain area which is responsible for verbal memory as well as learning. Exercise can also aid in improving circulation and improves sexual performance.
3. Get enough sleep
Sleep is the process that processes short-term memories and transforms them into long-term ones. Research has shown that lack of sleep can hinder ability to perform on memory tests. Try to sleep for 7-9 hours each night.
4. Increase these vitamins and minerals.
A lack of B12 is associated with memory loss. It could also aid in preventing the brain from atrophy (the loss of brain cells). Vitamin B12 is usually found in animal products therefore vegans typically need to supplement. Choline is essential to produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine , which is necessary for a healthy nervous system and brain functions like mood, memory and control of muscle. Choline levels during pregnancy are associated with improved memory for the infant. Lower levels of folate are linked with dementia and cognitive decline therefore, eat your greens!
5. Maintain your weight in a healthy range.
Weight loss improves all aspects of your health: physical, mental , and can even increase your fertility!
6. Limit alcohol
Drinking alcohol to excess or too frequently, can cause damage to the hippocampus, which is a region that is located in our brain and plays a crucial part in memory. Alcohol can boost sexual desire in small amounts, but it is a killer for libido/orgasm in the event of drinking too much!
7. Snack on walnuts, blueberries, and dark chocolate.
Each of these foods is high-quality brain foods and have been proven in research to enhance cognitive function and slow decline. Dark chocolate has the benefit of releasing the endorphins. They increase pleasure, boost mood, and mimic the feeling of being in love. Mix the frozen blueberries as well as walnuts in smoothies for a tasty healthy breakfast!
8. Herbal help at hand
Siberian ginseng can help improve physical and mental stamina and also focus and mental memory especially under stress. Bacopa is supported by numerous studies that have proven its efficacy in increasing memory and concentration for people of all age groups. Damiana enhances libido for both men as well as women. It is a nervine tonic, which is to say it helps nourish your nervous system. It is a traditional Western herbal treatment, it is often recommended for those suffering from depression or anxiety. Both of these ailments can impact libido and memory. Tribulus leaf is frequently utilised to boost female and male fertility. As an aphrodisiac, it increases libido for both women and men. Most of the time tribulus berries are utilised in supplements due to the fact that they are inexpensive, however it is the leaves which contain the active components that are required to produce an therapeutic effect.
