‘Better than Sudoku’
Getting older is one of the main causes of smell loss. 25 percent of people above the age of 50 have a seriously decreased sense of smell. Nearly one in three people above the age of 75 are functionally anosmic (unable to smell permanently or temporarily).
Smell loss not only affects appetite, but it can have wider implications for health and wellbeing. A study by scientific journal, Nature shows that smell loss can negatively impact older people’s ability to socialise.
Training and improving your sense of smell can have significant benefits for wellbeing and mindset as you age. In a recent study, smell training performed better than Sudoku in improving verbal function, wellbeing and indicated a decrease in depressive symptoms.
The AbScent Original Smell Training Kit is the ideal starter kit for smell training, it features the aromas of rose, lemon, clove and eucalyptus used in the original 2009 study in handy jars to make your daily smell training simple and effective.
AbScent is a UK charity supporting people with smell loss with trusted information, peer support and practical advice. If you or someone you know is affected by altered smell or taste, please visit https://abscent.org
