What Are Beta Brain Waves?
Beta Brain Waves are considered to be among the fastest brainwave frequencies and are documented as brain waves within the frequency range of 12 Hz – 38 Hz (or 12 to 38 cycles per second). They are typically produced by the left hemisphere of your brain, but can be synchronized. Each time you solve a tough math problem, logic puzzle, or read a book, your Beta Brain Waves kick in.
People who think logically tend to have a lot of Beta Brainwave activity. Adults tend to have more Beta Brainwaves than children and teens – and Beta Brain Waves have been known to increase as you get older. In the majority of healthy adults, Beta Waves seem to be the dominant rhythm. Beta Waves have also been associated with an increased ability to focus on our external reality. When we experience too many Beta Brain Waves, there can be problems like stress and anxiety. However, when produced in normal amounts, there are definitely many benefits to be had from experiencing Beta Brain Waves.
