Brain Health and Shift Work

Published on 7/9/2019

Recent research has found that chronic shift workers–especially, those who have done shift work for at least 10 years–may suffer from a premature aging of the brain equivalent to 6.5 years. The problem occurs because of a disruption in the circadian rhythms of the brain. The researchers believe that disrupting the body’s internal clock can lead to physiological issues which in turn negatively affect the brain.

If you are a shift worker, what can you do to combat these effects?

Limit consecutive night shifts: If you can, try limiting night shifts to no more than 3 in a row. Some research suggests it can cut down on the negative effects.

Take exercise breaks: The study found there may be potential cognitive benefits to taking breaks during shift work, if you use the breaks to do aerobic exercise.

Cease shift work and get a day job: The study found that when shift work stopped, people returned to normal–but not immediately. In fact, the researchers found that it took at least 5 years to get over the negative effects of chronic shift work.
Increase vitamin D: A previous study found that people who work night shifts may have a vitamin D deficiency from lack of sunlight, which can worsen cognitive decline.

Brain Tip:


Brain Food...

While all fruits pack some nutritional benefit, only berries seem to wield power when it comes to improving brain health. Women age 70 and older who ate one or two half-cup servings of blueberries and strawberries per week had brains that performed as much as two-and-a-half years younger than women who hardly ate any berries, according to a study published in the journal Annals of Neurology.

Researchers say the flavonoid compounds in berries, especially the anthocyanidin pigments that have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and give berries their beautiful hues, may be responsible. Consistent with this research, the MIND diet researchers suggest eating berries two or more times per week.

Get more: Blend frozen blueberries into smoothies; slice strawberries into a salad with avocado and walnuts; mash raspberries on toast with peanut butter in place of grape jelly.
