Coenzyme Q10

This Coenzyme is essential for transformation and contribution of energy to every living cell and increases longevity by slowing the aging process. That is due to its antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals.
There are foods that help us to produce it naturally, like nuts, sprouts or spinach.
We can also opt to take it as a supplement for a period of at least 3 months.

Three medicinal plants

One of the best natural remedies to improve cerebral oxygenation as well as tips, is the ginkbo biloba, a plant that improves the circulation of the brain and therefore strengthens mental ability. We can start it to take when we noticed a lack of memory, concentration, etc.
We can take it, for example, in summary form, but combiene breaks periodically to make the body do not get used and continue making profits.
The centella asiatica or gotu kola is a plant traditionally used by the India medicine to improve the general circulation, in a manner similar to ginkgo biloba. A good option would be to alternate these two herbs to seasons.
Sometimes we tend to underestimate some plants we have available, and that have instead been used easily by our ancestors for many diseases. One of them is Rosemary. Although we will have to monitor or check with a doctor if we suffer hypertension, Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) has antioxidant properties, very useful to avoid the damage that free radicals do on neurotransmitters and acts as a natural protector of the brain.
Already in ancient Greece was used to improve the memory and even students is placed a wreath of Rosemary on the forehead before their exams

Mint essential oil

Peppermint essential oil is an excellent brain stimulant that we can easily acquire and use daily. We can rub gently the temples with a couple of drops of this oil, which is very refreshing and has a pleasant aroma.

Finding the balance

As with everything, any part of our body must be used often to function properly. That is why we have to find a point of balance between its disuse due to age, physical inactivity, etc., and its abuse, as in cases of stress. To exercise the brain we can do Sudoku, memory, card games, games do accounts, remembering lists of objects, reading, comprehension exercises etc.
If on the contrary we suffer mental overload situations we will choose to exercise daily, soak up the Sun, have contact with nature, make breathing deep, go to a masseuse, etc. If not disconnected at night and our brain is still running can take infusions of Valerian or passion flower and try to be a few minutes with blank mind before going to sleep. Labour issues should not come out of work.
As important as using the brain is unknowingly let it rest.
