Students sniff rosemary to enhance concentration

Rosemary

 

 

When you sniff Rosemary an ancient herb you improve your cognition and mental clarity, it enhances relaxation and soothes the mind. The aroma is warming and engages the senses, with an almost instant calmness on the mind.

For several years I keep stumbling across articles suggesting that when you sniff Rosemary it improves mental clarity. Yesterday I blogged about the Neal’s Yard Study Buddies a range of aromatherapy products and supplements that support focus and memory function; today I find an article in BBC News http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-39780544 relating to students sniffing rosemary. The article states that “A study found that pupils working in a room with the aroma of rosemary, in the form of an essential oil, achieved 5% to 7% better results in memory tests”.

Nutrition Body and Soul sell Lavender and Rosemary eye masks(pillows) that aid relaxation and mental clarity. These are handmade using 100% recycled cotton and filled with homegrown lavender and rosemary from my garden. I retail these at £4.00.

 

 

 

 

Omega-3: Food for improved mental clarity and function that may also protect against diseases.

 

Recently The Journal of Alzheimers Disease have reported that “This is very important research because it shows a correlation between lower omega-3 fatty acid levels and reduced brain blood flow to regions important for learning, memory, depression and dementia.”

Supplements can support your intake of Omega -3 supplements, NYROrganics Omega-3.6.9 Blend is ideal.

Omega-3 Food for improved mental clarity and function that may also protect against diseases.

Omega-3 Fatty acids are crucial for mental health and wellbeing. Foods high in saturated fats affect the molecular systems that maintain mental function. Correct nutritional intake plus regular exercise improves cognitive function.

Your diet is influenced by multiple external and internal factors. External factors are those associated with culture, family habits, geographical location, income and society in general, not to mention media and advertising pressures.

Internally your brain controls your eating behaviours. Memories associated with both pleasure and dislike of foods remain with you for many years; as does the use of food as a reward.

Studies relating to the interactions of your brain when consuming Omega-3 fatty acid saturate the food sector. Within your brains cell membranes is an omega-3 fatty acid known as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

As the Western diet has evolved, there has been an increased intake of saturated fatty acids; and decrease intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Research suggests this may have some relation to the high levels of depression.

For several years, therapists have combined diet and exercise to reduce symptoms of depression and bipolar disorders. The thought behind this is where therapists focus on the gastrointestinal tract playing a critical role in the release and production of enzymes and nutrient absorption. The vagus nerve, stems from the base of the brain to several organs linked to the digestive tract. Inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract puts pressure on the vagus nerve, resulting in stimulation, and this reaction decreases the behaviour of neurotransmitters in your brain.

Some hormones found within your gut are associated with influencing your cognitive process and emotions:

Leptin – chemically reacts (synthesised) within the adipose tissue. This is loose connective tissue, with the main role of storing energy. Leptin also sends signals to your brain to reduce appetite. If your leptin levels fall when you lose weight, this can trigger hunger and increase your appetite and food craving.

Ghrelin – a growth hormone produced in the stomach and small intestine, known as the ‘hunger hormone’. The hormone influences part of your brain called the hypothalamus, which controls your appetite and more recent research has linked it to food ‘reward’ behaviours. Ghrelin also controls insulin release.

When you are dieting, the ghrelin levels are high and triggers the hunger response.

Your food intake both amount and nutrient content affect multiple brain processes that impact the behaviours of neurotransmitters and signal pathways; in basic terms food affects the way you brain reacts.

A deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids can result in impaired memory function and has been associated with mental disorders including depression, where those with diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids research findings found less episodes of depression and improved cognitive function and overall benefit to health.

Interestingly exercise with a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduces the mental decline associated with ageing.

Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids:

Fish – Salmon
Flax seeds
Kiwi fruit
Butternut squash
Walnuts

Other nutrients that improve /support cognitive function:

Curcumin – Turmeric (curry spice)

Flavonoids – Cocoa, green tea, citrus fruits

Vitamin D – Fatty fish, mushrooms, soy milk, cereal grains.

Vitamin E – Asparagus, avocado, nuts, olives, spinach, wheat germ.

Vitamin C – Citrus fruits

Calcium – Milk,

Zinc – Oysters, small amount in beans, almonds, sunflower seeds.

Selenium – Nuts, meat, fish, eggs.

Choline – Egg yolks, turkey, lettuce.

Copper – Oysters, lambs liver, brazil nuts, cocoa.

Iron – Red meat, fish, poultry, lentils, beans.

Looking to Improve your Memory, Start Sniffing ‘Rosemary’

Rosemary

Rosemary is a traditional ancient herb used both in the kitchen and herbal medicine linked to aiding increased memory. Henry Lyte’s in 1578 wrote that ‘Rosemary comforts the brain and inward senses’.

Memory problems?….Are you suffering from ‘brain fog’, recall sluggishness or feel your head is about to explode?. With the media reporting the rapid increase of dementia, we seek strategies to help us remain mentally alert and one step ahead of memory loss.

There are many different views on dementia, what causes it, and the correct treatment. As a nutritionist my interest is in using nutrients as both preventative and treatment. For years we have been told to increase our nutrient intake of fruit and vegetables, so most of us are now eating at least 4 of our recommended 5-8 a day. Research of Omega 3, suggests that those who consume a recommended daily intake of Omega 3 have better mental clarity and cognitive process speeds. But what else can we do?

The essential oil of Rosemary is used to promote memory, mental clarity, and more recently has been used to improve cognitive performance. The gentle crushing of the herb releases the alpha-pinene an organic compound found in the oils of rosemary and sage as well as many species of pine trees.

Pinene can increase mental focus and energy, as well as act as an expectorant, bronchodilator, and a topical antiseptic and has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine to retain and restore memory.

Have your own Rosemary plant?, next time your in the garden rub your hand on the branches and savour the awakening aroma.

Nutrition Body and Soul love the lavender and rosemary sleep mask/eye pads – perfect to aid sleep or used whilst meditating using the visualisation technique.
