The world is becoming more competitive day by day, in order that our kids fit into this climate and achieve success; it becomes essential that they realize their full growth potential. Research shows us that physical fitness is directly linked to children’s brain development. This link is the cornerstone that leads to their success.

Physical fitness related to brain performance

Scientists have found an association between physical fitness and brain development. The kids who are fitter tend to have a bigger hippocampus, and they perform well on memory tests compared to their less-fit peers.

Physically fit means having proper growth rates which mean correct height and weight for their age. In the above research, scientists used magnetic resource imaging to measure the relative size of specific structures in the brains of kids.

The hippocampus is tucked deep in the brain and is associated with memory and learning. A bigger hippocampus is associated with better performance on spatial reasoning and cognitive tasks.

Another research study by the University of Illinois researchers says that kids who are aerobically fit tend to have slightly thinner gray matter and do better on maths test compared to their lower-fit peers. 
As Indians, we tend to place a strong emphasis on maths and science subjects. So this study should make you sit down and take note of what is bothering your kids’ healthy development.

Thinning of the outermost layer of brain cells in the cerebrum is associated with better mathematics performance. Gray matter thinning is also associated with better reasoning and thinking skills according to previous research studies.

University of Illinois scientists says that physically fit kids have beefier brain white matter than their less-fit peers. Kids who are physically fit have more fibrous and compact white matter tracts in their brain than their peers who are less fit.

The bundles of axons that carry the nerve signals from one brain region to another describe the white matter. The more compact white matter is associated with faster and more efficient nerve activity.

Power foods that boost your kids’ growth

Calcium- it is vital for developing bone mass. Nearly all bone mass is built during childhood and adolescence. Sources include cheese, yogurt, and milk.

Vitamin E- Sources include avocado, nuts, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, wheat germ and spinach.

Fiber- Sources are fruits, beans, lentils, and chickpeas.

Potassium-   You can find it in bananas, yogurt, orange, milk and fish such as halibut and cod.

Iron-  It is found in shrimp, beef, chicken, beans and lentils.

Why should you give Horlicks to your kids?

I give Horlicks to both my children. Proper nutrition is essential to achieve healthy growth patterns. In this fast paced world, lack of time, picky eating, and junk foods act as barriers for a healthy diet.

Horlicks with its great history and time-tested formula provides the essential nutrient boost your kids need to attain their maximum growth potential. Research shows that drinking Horlick's speeds up the growth process and the results are visible in 6 months.

Horlicks naturally enhances growth and weight gain. It is specially formulated with high-quality whey protein to ensure maximum success.

 Guarantee the nutrition of your kids today so that they enjoy success tomorrow.

Thyroid hormone has a far reach in the body from your brain to bowels, so diagnosing a disorder can be challenging. Here are some tell-tale signs to find whether your thyroid is on the blink. üYou’re exhausted üYou’re feeling weak üAlways su…

Meishe village best described as “hidden jewel” is located near the volcanoes of Haikou. The village houses and roads are made of volcanic rock and the people are so untroubled that they never lock their doors. In this village, folk culture has withstood the test of time. The villagers prefer to marry their daughters to young men whose families have more jars to collect rain water.
Similar to our above story fermentation has also withstood the test of time. Prehistoric man made cheese some 7000 years ago and the earliest evidence of wine making dates back to 8000 years ago. So what is meant by fermentation? According to the author of the “Art of Fermentation”, it is best described as the flavorful space between fresh and rotten. The science of fermentation is known as zymology.
The fermented foods offer a variety to our diet. The biological enrichment during the fermenting process produces proteins, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids and vitamins. This boosts our immune functi…
