The elderly are good at “using the mouth” to prolong life
Longevity sounds like a big project, but in fact, some small details can exert unexpected effects after a long period of time.
Older people should eat more food, eat less, chew slowly, be good at mouthwash, diligently communicate, sing and laugh. If you practice these “mouths”, you can delay aging and prolong life.
Eat less meals. The gastrointestinal tract, liver and kidneys and other organs of the elderly are weaker. Eating less meals can minimize the burden on the body while ensuring nutrient intake.
It is best for the elderly to eat four to five meals a day, and each time they are 50 to 60 percent.
Chewing and chewing activities are closely related to the brain.
When the number of chewing foods increases or the frequency increases, the blood flow to the brain also increases significantly, activating the cerebral cortex, thereby delaying aging.
Good at mouthwash and swallowing Russian scientists have found that the central nervous system will start to excite after about 5 minutes of continuous mouthwashing. The large amount of saliva secreted immediately after the mouthful of mouthwash will exacerbate this excitement and have a good health effect on the brain.
In the traditional Chinese health practice, there is a “drumstick” saying that the tongue is stirred up and down more than 36 times in the mouth, and the saliva produced is swallowed three times, and there is no evil fire, no blood, no blood, no spleen, no longevity.The effect of the year.
Singing and laughing Singing not only makes people happy, but also enhances immunity.
Laughter is also the best helper for health. French psychologists point out that when people laugh, there will be a “biochemical storm” in the brain that can greatly improve brain function.
The elderly sing more and laugh more, can relax the brain and effectively prevent the occurrence of senile dementia.
Diligent conversation The longevity of China’s famous Chinese painting master Guan Shanyue is that he often talks with people. He has not only activated his own brain, but also made friends from all walks of life. He is cheerful and open-minded.
More conversation can reduce the incidence of loneliness and depression.
