Memory & Concentration

Stimulation and protection for long term health benefits

There are a number of factors that can cause memory decline such as certain medications, alcohol, tobacco, sleep deprivation, head injuries and stress. Nutrition also plays a factor in reduced cognitive function; diets laden in saturated fats and processed sugars have been linked to reduced brain activity and learning capacity (Molteni 2002).

The mind is like a muscle; if it’s not used regularly it can become less agile and effective. Memory and concentration, cognitive function and alertness naturally decline with age; there are however, many things one can do to keep the mind sharp. Lifestyle strategies to improve memory and cognition can be very effective; exercise, relaxation techniques, adequate sleep, reading, puzzles and a healthy diet all play a role in how well the brain functions, especially as we get older.

At Fusion® Health we recognise the value of supplementing a healthy diet and lifestyle with herbal medicines and essential vitamins and minerals to help provide antioxidant protection, increase cognitive function, relieve mental fatigue and improve memory and concentration, no matter what your age.

Here’s what Chinese medicine has to say about Memory & Concentration

  • In Chinese medicine, symptoms of stress are commonly associated with a disturbance in the flow of Shen or mind and spirit. Stabilising Shen, calming the mind and spirit and regulating the flow of Qi (energy) can help you respond to stress in a healthy way.
  • A deficiency in Liver and Kidney Yin (also called inherited Qi) is associated with chronic nervous system deficiency which can manifest as fatigue and cognitive impairment.
