Healthy food combined with healthy habits and healthy environment provides healthy mind to the students

If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences.The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient; at others, so bewildered and so weak; and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond control! We are, to be sure, a miracle every way; but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting do seem peculiarly past finding out.Jane Austen (1775 - 1817), Mansfield Park.

Memory is the recalling and recapitulating capacity of a person. The brain and the computer work in similar fashion to store day to day happenings, incidents and visuals. When a person’s brain is fresh he is able to store more information and remember the matter for long. Everyone, starting from a child to an elderly person has an emotional overload that in the modern language is sometimes called –‘tension.’ And this leads to some degree of pre-occupation. Pre-occupation destroys the momentary pleasures that are etched in our daily memory diary and we tend to become forgetful. As the Italian poet and critic, Cesare Pavese said, “We do not remember days, we remember moments. The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten.”

Elderly people’s loss of memory power is related to physiological changes in the brain due to hardening of arteries due to age. Forgetfulness is a common occurrence in today’s fast-paced life. Forgetting birthdays, wedding anniversaries or an important meeting time is common among those who tend to multi-task and burn their candles from both ends.

Lack of focus and concentration among students is not uncommon. This too a large extent is due to the playful nature of children, distraction by television or computer games or the Internet. Lack of interest in a subject can be another reason. How can we improve this apathy?

Hi Naznisa, I say Spirulina is a great memory booster or enhancer. High Grade Spirulina contains all know required nutrients and phytonutrients: complete protein, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, pigments, etc. As importantly its bioavailability is likely of the highest order as proven in clinical human trials and its beneficial results of usage proven in large clinical and industrial trials with animals and human. Of the many phytonutrients contained in Spirulina, GLA and phycocyanin [a blue pigment] are the greatest contributor to boost brain function. Phycocyanin is known to enhance the functioning of the brain and nervous system. Phycocyanin helps draw together amino acids for neurotransmitter formation, which increases mental capacity. Certainly the Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) content is another important factor. As we all know, the human brain is around 80% fat. Nerve tissues in the brain need "healthy"¯ fats in order to function properly, and GLA is one of the healthiest fats you can consume. That's why human breast milk contains high quantities of GLA. In fact, breast milk is the #1 source of GLA on the planet, and spirulina is #2. Phycocyanin content of Spirulina combined with its GLA content (the good fats that heal) provides a compelling reason to consume these micro-algae. The GLA feeds your brain and nervous system with the nutrients it needs to be healthy, while phycocyanin increases brain functionality. It's a powerful combination. But please be careful where you get your Spirulina as a lot are using fillers. I hope I was able to help.
