Top 7 ways to increase Myelin in your brain.

Top 7 ways to increase Myelin in your brain.

What is Myelin?

Myelin sheath is a cover made out of fats and proteins that wraps around the axon (end) of a nerve cell. It is responsible for the concentration and focus of your mind. Since myelin transmits neuronal signals, Myelin plays a critical role in determining intelligence.

Here are some tips that will increase the amount of Myelin in your brain so that you can have better concentration, razor-sharp focus, and a more productive mind.

1. Have a Deep Sleep.

  • Turn off household lights, get red light bulbs.
  • Don’t eat for at least 3 hours before going to bed.
  • Go to bed at the same time every night.
  • Completely blackout room with curtains and wear a sleep mask

2. Take a diet rich in Vitamin C 

Vitamin C is known to participate in myelin formation.

Here are some foods rich in Vitamin C

3. Take a diet rich in Iron.

Studies show that low iron levels lead to a reduction in myelination, and higher iron levels support the formation of myelin.

Watch here some list of foods that are rich in Iron.

4. Learn to play a musical instrument.

 Studies show that learning a new instrument leads to increased myelin.

Watch here a list of musical instruments which you can play. 

5. Exercise daily.

 Exercising daily improves memory by restoring myelin. Exercise can also increase mitochondrial function, which increases myelin when consuming a high-fat diet

Here is a video on how to exercise at home.

6. Avoid alcohol.

 Chronic alcoholism speeds up normal age-related myelin deterioration in the brain.

7. B Vitamins

A number of different B vitamins can help your body regenerate myelin.

Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the generation and function of myelin. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause demyelination and problems with early brain development.

Here is a list of some foods which are rich in Vitamin B.
