How brain cells get destroyed

Brain cells get destroyed when we experience high levels of chronic inflammation. This mainly happens due to chronic stress, unhealthy eating habits (eating too much processed sugar, meat, and refined carbs), and not getting enough rest.

When we have an inflamed brain, it leads to brain fog, anxiety, depression, and low energy; and in the long run, it may cause cognitive decline and other diseases.

Neurogenesis happens in two parts of the brain: the hippocampus and the olfactory bulb. The former is responsible for emotional health and memory function while the latter is associated with smell.

The neurotrophin BDNF is a type of protein that helps with the brain cells' growth and survival.

  • Neurogenesis - is the process of which new neurons/brain cells grow in the brain;
  • Neuroplasticity - refers to the existing neurons and the new neurons grow and form different connections with each other. It shapes who we are.
