Alleviate Stress and Anxiety

According to a study published in The Arts in Psychotherapy last 2015, patients who have anxiety disorder get better thanks to music therapy. Listening to music helps you relax whether you have severe or mild anxiety. Likewise, vitamin C found in fresh fruit juices can help you combat stress.

The stress hormone cortisol increases blood pressure every time you’re stressed. But thanks to vitamin C, you can experience fewer physical effects brought by stress.

Enhance Cognitive Power

Psychological studies have proven that listening to music can keep you alert and it can even improve your memory. Similarly, fresh juices made using masticating juicers can give your memory a boost. In fact, according to WebMD, older adults with memory problems who consumed wild blueberry juice daily had better scores on memory tests than those who took a placebo.

Another study revealed that adding enough amounts of folic acid, riboflavin, vitamin C, and vitamin B12 to one’s diet can aid in countering memory loss.

Improve Concentration

Foods with nootropics are associated with cognitive benefits like enhanced concentration, motivation, and learning. In short, juicing foods with lots of nootropics can help you keep focused. Foods that are abundant in nootropics are lemons, turnip greens, bananas, parsley, strawberries, blueberries, apples, cherries, cranberries, raspberries, and celery. The flavonoids found in some fruits and veggies also support learning and brain function.  Take note that using a masticating juicer when juicing is much better than using other juicers because it can extract two to three times more juice from leafy green vegetables.

In the same way, listening to music can improve your focus on particular tasks. Classical music and nature sounds can help students, workers, and bookworms concentrate on their homework, reports, and book.

Serve as a Source of Motivation

You can get sufficient amount of B vitamins from kale, oranges, cantaloupe, and strawberries.

Correspondingly, listening to music can help you stay enthusiastic to work out. Studies have revealed that slower music can physically and mentally slow a person down, while fast music can keep one pumped up.

Research shows that listening to music can alleviate stress and decrease the symptoms of depression. According to the researchers in the UK, particular songs can lower anxiety levels by up to 65%. It’s possible because music combats cortisol (stress hormone) in our body. This makes music an excellent medicine for the mind, especially since stress causes nearly 60% of all our sicknesses. Plus, those who sing and play percussion instruments were found to have better improved immune system compared to those who just listened.

Music can make us happy

Studies prove that listening to music we like can make our brains release dopamine, which is a feel-good neurotransmitter. Dopamine allows us to feel happy, excited, and joyful.

Music can give us nights of good sleep

Did you know that more than 30% of Americans suffer from insomnia?

Music improves learning and memory


Studies show that music can help us learn and remember info better. However, this fact would still depend on how much you love the music or whether you’re a musician or not. In one study, subjects were asked to memorize Japanese characters while they’re listening to music which seemed neutral or positive to them. The results? Those participants who were musicians learned better with neutral music but had better results when they listened to pleasurable music. On the other hand, non-musicians learned better when positive music was playing, but they tested better with neutral music. But whether or not you’re a musician, one thing’s for sure: Music can make you better.

The Relationship of Music and Marijuana

You might be familiar with Bob Marley and his pot activities, and it might make you wonder what kind of relationship music has with marijuana. Although only a few studies regarding this issue have been conducted, it’s still worth looking into.


Let’s discuss a particular experiment regarding the two elements.


According to this study which examined the brains of individuals as they were listening to music, there was an increase of activity in the users’ parietal lobe after they smoked pot compared to before they used marijuana. In case you didn’t know, the parietal lobe deals with the reception and correlation of sensory information, and plays a major role in problem-solving as well. The study, in essence, found that cannabis can help the smoker comprehend music with a higher level.

It also suggested that marijuana and music can both lead to an increase in activity in the right hemisphere of our brain, which is deals with the emotional, imaginative, and intuitive functions. In layman’s term, that means songwriters, as well as musicians, can be a lot more creative if they smoke marijuana. Any genre of music can also be enjoyed more because of cannabis, and marijuana can be enjoyed more with music.

Let’s take a look at what the experts have to say.


Dr. Jörg Fachner, a music, health and brain professor at Anglia Ruskin University said that marijuana doesn’t alter the music or the way our ears function. Rather, marijuana changes the manner users recognize ear space in music. According to Dr. Fachner, weed serves as a psycho-acoustic enhancer which enables users to concentrate more and absorb the music more. He also stated that it modifies the perception of time, which is why when high, people might think that only an hour has passed when several hours have already gone.

Furthermore, Dr. Zach Walsh, a psychology professor at the University of British Columbia, mentioned that people become relaxed when they use cannabis. And once a user is in a calm state, he can be more responsive to music during that time. Dr. Walsh also said that marijuana could better a person’s presence at the moment, which prevents him from worrying, organizing, and planning other things.
