Lower the risk of memory loss with Bubble Math
By 18 June 2015
By training with our game Bubble Math you of course train your brain to calculate faster, which is convenient when you’re shopping, but there is more you’re training. By doing mental calculations, you’re improving the white matter (myelin) in your brain. The white matter acts as insulation of the axons of the nerve cells, which ensures the communication between different parts in the brain. In the image below you can see a nerve cell.
The long middle part is the axon, which is covered in white matter, which is yellow in the image to show. Doing mental calculations improve the quality of the white matter in the brain and increases the speed of the transfer of signals between brain cells, which results in an improved memory. The disappearance of the insulating white matter results in a slower transfer of signals, and is responsible for memory loss.
With Bubble Math you can improve the white matter in your brain, but for an optimal result it is favorable when the white matter is protected properly. Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in fish, will make sure the white matter in the brain is protected. Omega-3 fatty acids often refer to the two most important acids, which are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docasahexaenoic Acid (DHA). Here is a list of fish that contain a beneficial amount of these Omega-3 fatty acids:
The favorable effect already occurs when eating fish containing Omega-3 fatty acids once a week. The combination of training with Bubble Math and eating fish every now and then results in the next benefits:
- Improving/protecting the white matter
- Improving your memory
- Being able to work faster
- Lowering the risk of memory loss
- Improving the ability to learn
- Preventing cognitive decline at a later age
