(NaturalNews) A Natural News article entitled "Five easy ways to increase mental acuity, end depression, and prevent or reverse Alzheimer's" was posted in April 2011. You can access that article in the sources section below. But there are more preventative measures to add to that list. It seems wise to launch an all-out multiple pronged effort with as many preventative measures as possible when you begin struggling with names and titles that were once easily accessed.

Uncommon nutrient brain boosters

Decreasing as we age, acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that needs to be increased as we approach or pass mid-life. It can be done with the right nutrients. Even if brain memory cells are not damaged, if there is not enough acetylcholine, accessing those memories can be exercises in futility.

There are choline compound supplements available as precursors for increasing acetylcholine in the brain. According to Dr. Ray Sahelian, MD, these can furnish rapid results for memory improvement.

The herbs ginkgo biloba and ginseng also aid acetylcholine production. Omega-3 rich foods such hemp, flax, and chia seeds also help support acetylcholine.

L-arginine is a precursor for nitric oxide (NO), a gas that enhances blood flow to brain blood vessels and other organs. Brain benefits are considered secondary to NO's ability of preventing heart attacks and strokes.

But nitric oxide has been found to benefit anti-aging and brain deterioration associated with aging. Inhaling nitric oxide has even been used as emergency treatments for brain injury trauma victims.

Non-nutritional approaches

Most hormones decrease with age, but not cortisol, according to Dr. Al Sears. Cortisol increases with age and is a major source of mental or brain deterioration. Since stress produces this "fight or flight" hormone, minimizing stress can eliminate excess cortisone production.

Meditation is a proven method of reducing stress. The corpse pose of Hatha Yoga, done properly, promotes total relaxation, eliminating every trace of tension. Practiced daily, either or both of these methods lead to a general demeanor of stressing less over situations that were common stress factors.

Truly relaxing to the point of releasing all tense muscles is a powerful practice for curbing cortisol production.

Exercise helps too, and it doesn't have to be vigorous. Brisk walking for a mile or so a few times a week has demonstrated improved memory and mental acuity as people reach middle age or later.

Recently, a three minute simple exercise has been found to reduce brain fog and improve mental acuity. Access the video in the sources section below.

Using your mind more for interesting pursuits instead of less as you age is wise. "Use it or lose it" applies here too. Instead of retiring to a life of absolute leisure, engage regularly in some activity that's interesting to you and that requires using your noggin.
