"Healthy" brain for year 2011

Hi Happy New Year. What are we expecting for a new year? For me, of course a "healthier" brain! I need an active brain to do more work and handle tasks in next year. Here is a little tip of how to achieve that. A brain needs 120g glucose for every single day. During fasting period, normal blood glucose level should be 4.0 - 6.1 mmol/L. However, if measure in 2 hours after having meal, normal blood glucose level should be 4.4 - 8 mmol/L. If blood glucose level < 3 mmol/L, it can cause our brain response slower and faint if getting worse. Thus, since our brain needs continuous supply of glucose, we need to eat adequate portion size of foods for every meal and maintain appropriate frequency in a day to boost up our brain activities. So, what do you all think? Please "feed" your brain well to celebrate a whole new year!

大脑一日平均需要120克葡萄糖,由于脑部的葡萄糖储备只能维持15分钟,它必须依靠血液中的葡萄糖持续输送。人体在禁食的期间正常血糖值是4.0 到6.1 mmol/L. 若在进食两小时后测量,正常血糖应该是4.4 到8mmol/L. 若血糖值少于3mmol/L, 会导致脑部反应缓慢,甚至陷入昏迷状态。因此,为了脑部的正常运作,我们必须维持正常的饮食时间,每餐保持适合的份量,少吃多餐,以最好的状态迎接新的一年。
