Does the Sound of Noisy Eating Drive You Mad? Here’s Why

Oh, those irritating sounds: the slurping of coffee; the echoes of loud chewing; or the nervous, continuous clatter of pocket change or keys — all things that drive some people nuts when others make such sounds nearby. The name for this sound discomfort is misophonia, and now scientists have found that an abnormality in a part of the brain that controls emotions is what causes some people to have misophonia, Time reports.

While it’s comforting to know that there is an actual brain activity that contributes to a hatred of certain sounds, it’s also important to remember that brain health is as important to your overall health as paying attention to the rest of your body is. Contrary to popular belief, your brain doesn't have to slow down or become unreliable with age, and there are steps within your control that can influence your memory, cognition and more.

The good news is that there are several things you can do to boost brain health. For example, there is strong evidence that maintaining adequate vitamin D levels is important for memory and cognitive function. In fact, vitamin D’s neuroprotective effects are so strong that studies show the risk of cognitive impairment is up to four times greater in elderly people with severe vitamin D deficiency compared to those with adequate levels.

Most people can get good vitamin D with sun exposure. But if you do opt for a vitamin D supplement, please remember that you also need to boost your intake of vitamin K2 through food and/or a supplement.
