Problems with the brain may affect the whole body. An insufficient brain blood supply (cerebral insufficiency) or a cerebral hemorrhage may paralyze the body and even affect the lifespan of a person. 

As you age, if there is an insufficient brain blood supply, you will experience many symptoms of discomfort. If you want to know whether you are in a state of cerebral insufficiency, you need to observe whether you experience these common manifestations. The more often, the more risk to the body.

5 common manifestations of an insufficient brain blood supply

1. Feeling sleepy and yawning 

If there is cerebral insufficiency, people will feel very tired, and it will be accompanied by frequent yawning. If you have these symptoms, you’d better check whether the blood supply and brain function are healthy to avoid further damage to the body. 

2. Dizziness  

Most people with cerebral insufficiency experience dizziness even after sleeping for a long time, but they don’t feel tired.

If the cerebral insufficiency is not mild, the symptoms of dizziness can be quickly alleviated by having a rest. If dizziness occurs quite often, it means that the cerebral insufficiency could be serious. A person may faint, and it could even be life-threatening. 

3. Vision is affected 

If you want to judge whether you have cerebral insufficiency, you just need to pay more attention when going about your business.  

If you often have blurred vision or your vision suddenly becomes dim, it is due to insufficient nutrition in the cerebral cortex and brain cells. This is caused by an insufficient brain blood supply. Therefore, the optic nerve function has been damaged to a certain extent. 

4. Numbness in limbs

Cerebral insufficiency can cause numbness of the tongue, hands, and feet. Sometimes your hands have a poor grip or feel numb, or you may have unclear speech or a knotted tongue. These may be the symptoms of an insufficient brain blood supply. 

5. Emotional instability 

People with cerebral insufficiency have big mood swings and become very irritable and indifferent, which affects their normal lives. If people have these behaviors, it is likely to be caused by cerebral insufficiency. You need to pay attention to it and seek medical attention promptly. 

The above symptoms are often encountered by people with cerebral insufficiency. If these symptoms occur, you need to be careful. 

3 ways to alleviate insufficient brain blood supply

1. Restful sleep 

Maintaining a steady sleep pattern is very important to achieve quality rest for the body and mind. Only when sleep is stable can the brain get better rest.

2. Less oil and less salt 

Blood flow problems are frequently closely related to a poor diet and lifestyle. So for everyone who wants to protect their brain health and avoid cerebral insufficiency, you must reduce the daily intake of various processed oils and salts commonly found in ultra-processed foods that many eat these days to save time cooking.  

3. Eat some brain foods 

To counter the symptoms of cerebral insufficiency, middle-aged and elderly people can eat brain foods such as honey and walnuts regularly. Nuts are relatively rich in nutrients and are effective in the maintenance and repair of brain cells. Honey contains many trace elements, fructose, and glucose making it palatable and delicious. Both can improve not only memory, but also brain function and relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of cerebral insufficiency.
