Why is Braincare so important?
Your brain has a significant impact on your daily well-being. Without exaggeration, it affects almost everything. From your energy level to your concentration to your mood. So it directly affects your quality of life, no matter how old you are.
A healthy brain makes you perform at your best. In a nutshell, this means:
- better mental health and stress management
- sharpened focus and memory
- boosted mood
- improved sleep and energy
- less brain fog
- improved learning and retention
- lasting whole-body health
Simple habits and routines for Braincare
Your Braincare routine is unique. Because no two brains in this world are the same, just as no two people in this world can be identical. So what works for you may not work equally well for the other person.
But there are some basic principles that each of us can take to heart and adapt to our needs in order to maintain a healthy brain day after day.
Therefore, let's take a closer look at the 5 Pillars of Braincare:
- Hydration & Nutrition
- Selfcare & Mindfulness
- Relaxation & Sleep
- Sports & Exercise
- Learning & Digital Diet
In this blog post, we focus on the first fundamental pillar: Hydration & nutrition.
Let's start with the apparently simplest thing: drink enough water. Men need 2-3 Liters of water per day (depending on body weight). For every tea, coffee or alcoholic beverage, a glass extra 🤯.
Our brain is quite thirsty. If we are 1-3% dehydrated, it already affects our concentration and memory. An important rule is: You only notice that you are dehydrated when your lips are dry or you are thirsty, then you’re way more than 3% dehydrated!
💧 Our Recommendations:
- Put a big glass of water next to your bed and drink it first thing in the morning when you wake up. This way you start the day with more energy..
- Buy a water bottle, at best 1L, then it will be easy for you to drink enough water. Alternatively, you can always have a large water jug on your desk.
Research suggests that a Mediterranean diet, called the MIND diet, boosts our memory and prevents neurodegenerative diseases like dementia.
For example, you should eat the following:
🥬 5x per week green, leafy vegetables
🥕 5+ different coloured fruits and vegetables daily
🫐 5x per week berries
☀️ sufficient vitamin D
🌭 ❌ Minimally processed foods
We want to take a big part of that off your plate with our NOUMEN Braincare Supplement. Soon we will be launching our SHOP. In the meanwhile, please remember to be consistent, man.
In the next blog posts we will introduce you to the 4 remaining pillars of Braincare.
