How to improve your sense of smell?

No doubt you can choose some classy products and appreciate their aroma if you have an acute sense of smell. But, do you know that smelling food can boost your metabolism? Yes, you can digest and metabolize the food more efficiently if you smell your food before consumption. And if the process is continued regularly, you can also boost your smelling power.

Let’s see what else you can do to boost the olfactory senses.

Increase the zinc uptake

If you do not have sufficient amount of zinc in your diet, your power of smelling the aroma may decrease. Therefore, increase the intake of sunflower seeds, spinach, kidney beans, oysters, and shrimp.

Stay away from smell-impairing substances

Consumption of alcohol and smoking is proved to negatively impact the smelling ability. In fact, the sense of smell is inversely proportional to the blood-alcohol level of an individual.


You thought exercise is limited to staying active, shedding weight, or toning of muscles. Well, the exercise sessions can sharpen your olfactory senses by boosting the brain function.

Get a humidifier

A humidifier increases moisture level in the air, which ultimately enhances the level of moisture in a nose. And, do you know what happens then? Yes, you guessed it right. Moisture boosts your sense of smell. Because the odor molecules need to be solubilized by the mucus in the nose.

Short and shallow sniffs

If you are introduced to a new aroma, it is a good idea to take a series of shallow and short sniffs. It boosts your ability to enjoy the smell.
