					                10 How To "Strengthen" Brain

Being smart was not something that happens because it is spontaneous. In
addition to genetic factors there are several methods used to increase your
intelligence. If you wish, you can follow the 10 steps recommended the
following alternatives:

1. Sport
Believed to increase the capacity of the brain for several years, but scientists
found new evidence showing a relationship practice with physical and mental

A study from the University of Cambridge declared jogging several times a
week can stimulate the brain. By walking for several days, hundreds of
thousands of new brain cells will grow which will have an effect on memory
formation and memory.

Thus increasing the ability to recall memories without confusion on cognitive
tasks and can memerlambat mental damage in old age.

Recently, scientists also discovered that exercise is also able to release a
protein named "noggin". Proteins that will act as an agent and cons of other
proteins, such as bone morphogenetic proteins. Thus stimulating increased
cell division of the brainstem, the brain remains active and nimble as we get

Research also indicates the strengthening of the production of "noggin" could
prevent brain-related diseases such as Alzheimer's age.

2. Siesta
Scientists suspect that nap has a significant impact on the memory capacity
of the brain.Recent research has found that sleeping for an hour in the
afternoon to increase the working capacity of the brain and dramatically
improve their ability to learn new facts and tasks.

Nap after lunch also serve as a regenerative assistance, which allows the
brain to keep the memory stays while the new information entered.

The researchers found that those who stay awake throughout the day tend to
be more difficult to learn new tasks, so experts assume that the long-term
impact of a nap is a degenerative mental disease.
3. Magnesium-Rich Foods
Magnesium-rich foods such as spinach and broccoli are believed to enhance
memory and brain power food. The latest research, published in the journal
Neuron found, increased magnesium in the brain can help the learning
process both young and old age people.

4. Bask
Scientists have found that sunburn can increase your intelligence and prevent
dementia. Intake of vitamin D can be obtained from the sun, but vitamin D
also is found in oily fish oil. Which can increase the ability to keep the brain
remains active in top condition as you age.

In addition, in the Journal of Neurology found that the relationship between
increased intake of vitamin D resulted in faster information processing,
especially in men over the age of 60 years.

5. Mow
The researchers said the chemicals found when mowing the grass can not
only reduce stress and make people happier, but also could prevent mental
decline in old age.

Australian scientists claimed that the smell of freshly cut grass directly acting
on the brain, especially in the area of emotions and memories. Even when
this was released a perfume that smelled of cut grass that can be used to
menciptkan sense of relaxation and stimulate the brain surrounding the

6. Sex and Chocolate
Book by Simon Wootton and Terry Horne has claimed that eating dark
chocolate to improve sex, and follow the Scandinavian tradition, who would
choose to have cold meat for breakfast can improve brain power.

This book examines how diet, environment and stress affect mental
capacity. They emphasized that the brain capacity is always considered in
terms of genetic, although it is actually determined lifestyle.

In addition, the materials of dark chocolate affects the process of sexual
intercourse, while the energy gained from the cold meat can stimulate the
brain and prevent mental disorders as they age.

7. Studying music since the young
A study showed that young children who take music lessons show more
advanced brain development and improved memory compared with those
who did not take music.
Children who are trained music ditemukkan better on tests of memory
associated with general intelligence skills like reading, verbal memory,
mathematics and IQ. The scientists conducting this research indicates that
music has the potential to improve intelligence in children from the age of four

8. Talking with your baby
Experts say that mothers who talk to babies can help their children's brains
develop better.Researchers from Northwestern University in Illinois found that
words play an important role in brain development of children even before
they start talking.

The study showed that increasing the ability to categorize words according to
the representation of their images at an early age can memebnatu child's
brain development.

9. Playing Tetris
A study by American scientists found that the classic puzzles (Tetris game)
may also have a positive impact on your brain power.

The results showed although the game is relatively simple compared with the
sophisticated computer games today, regular exercise can increase the
power of thought. After playing for half an hour every day for a period of three
months, suffered a brain 'structural changes' in areas related to movement,
critical thinking, reasoning, linguistic and processing.

10. "Thinking Cap"
Currently, scientists have developed a product called "Thinking Cap" which is
expected this device can improve the brain's ability to learn.

Researchers from the University of British Colombia, Vancouver, started the
project after discovering that the brain's ability to learn new tasks increased
significantly when a magnetic vibration directed to the premotor cortex, a
brain area just behind the forehead. This technique can be used to enhance
the ability not only intellectually, but also to help those who have difficulty
