Ways to Increase Concentration and Boost Memory

Creating healthy eating habits is one the most important ways to help children do well in school and throughout their academic life. Today at the Tutoring Center in Friendswood we want to discuss how the right types of food and good eating habits can boost a student´s memorization and ability to concentrate.

Promote Concentration

Lack of concentration happens when the information is not being transported and captured constantly and correctly. The cells in the brain must be able to take a message and send it effectively, and good levels of oxygen are required for this. Eating regular healthy meals helps blood sugars stay constant and allows better levels of oxygen to reach brain cells. The information then needs to be transported to other brain cells through nerve fibers. Nerve fibers are surrounded by a fatty element. This fatty substance is called myelin and is built and maintained by eating sufficient amounts of omega 3 foods such as salmon and walnuts.

Improve Memory

Memory improves when new connections in the brain are formed, and when brain cells are stimulated they best construct those connections. Acetylcholine is a chemical in the brain that keeps the brain cells alive and alert so prolonged connections are created. Choline, is a similar chemical that can be found in certain foods and has a very similar effect to the brain producing chemical acetylcholine. Eggs and liver contain sufficient amounts of choline to help cause this brain cell stimulation effect. Other smaller amounts of choline can also be found in some veggies such as broccoli and cauliflower.
