According to David Perlmutter, M.D., Board-certified neurologist, “Alzheimer's is preventable. It is a disease predicated on lifestyle choices primarily, because of the high amount of carbohydrates/sugar that we now, as Western-culture individuals, are consuming.”
Brain research recently has shed much light on the processes of our brains. Now we know that the brain can add new cells, that connections can be re-routed and renewed over time so we can stay sharp and healthy. The brain takes about 2% of our weight and 20% of body's blood flow, so good circulation is necessary for a healthy brain.
To help lift that brain fog that sets in on all of us we can do several things. Exercise is one of the key ingredients to a healthy brain. Walking and reducing stress is good for the body all round! And keeping our brain sharp with brain-games is a fun way of keeping those connections functioning.
Eating right is another key to good brain health. Staying away for empty carbohydrates and sugar-laden foods is necessary for a healthy brain and body. Feed your whole body the vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids and carotenoids needed for good health! And drinks lots of filtered water, circulation is necessary! Stay way from grains as much as possible according to Dr Perlmutter. Think health for the whole body and your brain will keep sharp and witty for life!
I take a new supplement from Shaklee called MindWorks that is supports brain health. Check it out on my personal online website. MindWorks key nutrients have been shown in three clinical studies and dozens of laboratory studies to immediately enhance mental sharpness and focus and protect against age-related mental decline.*
Shaklee is a leader in cognitive health, not only providing nutritional support but also funding brain health research. That's why we take every MindWorks bottle we sell and use a portion of the proceeds to fund the Shaklee Grant Program for Brain Health Research.
