Is It Really Possible for Your Body to Create New Brain Cells?
Elevate Your Potential Magazine
Scientific research suggests that brain cells can regenerate. An amino acid called taurine plays an important role in creating new brain cells. Researchers found that taurine increased the growth of brain cells by activating “sleeping” stem cells. Taurine also increased the survival of new neurons, resulting in an increase in adult brain cell creation.
Taurine levels fall significantly with age, leaving the brain, heart, kidneys, and other tissues deprived of this vital healing compound—one capable of rescuing dying cells and restoring cellular communication. Experts are beginning to recognize that with age, many can experience a taurine deficiency that is a real and fundamental threat to health.
Taurine Can Slow and Reverse Brain Shrinkage
The great news is that taurine is a super low-cost supplement, meaning everyone can benefit from its potential to slow and reverse degenerative processes. For years, scientists believed that brain shrinkage (atrophy) was an unstoppable degenerative process. New research reveals this loss of brain matter is partially caused by reversible processes.
One of the chief requirements for growing fresh brain cells is a little known amino acid: taurine. Taurine has a surprising number of critical actions concerning how cells protect and renew themselves. Studies now show that restoring taurine content in brain cells can reverse these trends, and rejuvenate brain structure and function.
You can grow new brain cells. Here’s how | Dr. Sandrine Thuret
(TEDx Talks) Can we, as adults, grow new neurons? Neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret says that we can, and she offers research and practical advice on how we can help our brains better perform neurogenesis—improving mood, increasing memory formation and preventing the decline associated with aging along the way.
