It was believed that the human brain could not produce new brain cells after reaching maturity, but scientists have accepted the fact that the human brain can undergo neurogenesis, and this process can be helped through some lifestyle and dietary changes.
Two specific regions of the brain (hippocampus and the subventricular zone) show evidence of neurogenesis after maturity. Hippocampus is center of memory, emotion and the autonomic nervous system.
You can promote adult-stage brain cell formation by following these 5 steps:
1. Exercise – regular exercise is the most effective way of promoting neurogenesis in your brain.
4. Sunlight, sleep and sex
5. Cannabis and psilocybin – Cannabis contains THC and CBD that match with receptors in the brain to promote neurogenesis and reduce anxiety. Psilocybin increases hippocampal neurogenesis.
