Fresh grass was cut off when the chemical compound that will be inhaled relaxing and happy. That is why, smell the grass and plants while walking in the park or the mountains will make us feel comfortable. This was revealed by researchers from the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. Chemical compounds contained in the scent of grass but can ease the tension also acts to prevent decline in mental ability at the time of old age.
Scientists claim that the smell of grass that is released to work directly on the brain. Primarily affects the brain called the amygdala and hippocampus associated with emotion and memory. "Both these areas are responsible for defense response and the endocrine system, which controls the release of stress hormones such as corticosteroids," said Dr Nick Lavidis, as quoted by Science Alert.
Therefore, research that takes up to seven years later created the perfume with the scent of newly mowed grass to help relieve stress and improve memory. Lavidis then explained that the stress is divided into two categories. First, stress is when someone will do something or when someone had to do my best to get the best results. But according Lavidis, stress is known as a good form of stress.
While the second category of stress is bad stress that can trigger high blood pressure, forgetfulness, and weakens the immune system. "This type of stress can damage the hippocampus by reducing the relationship between the cells that communicate that affects memory loss," said Lavidis. For that, Lavidis suggested that people affected by this stress inhaling chemical compounds released by the fresh grass or trees that shade
