Each of your body’s organs plays an important role in your overall health, but it would be hard to argue against the notion that the brain is the “king” of all the organs. Thus, ensuring the health of your brain should be near or at the top of your priorities when it comes to taking care of yourself for the long term.
Research suggests combining good nutrition with mental, social and physical activities may have a greater benefit in maintaining or improving brain health than any single activity. At the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® 2014, a two-year clinical trial of older adults at risk for cognitive impairment showed a combination of physical activity, nutritional guidance, cognitive training, social activities and management of heart health risk factors slowed cognitive decline.
In addition to eating well, getting regular exercise and regularly stimulating your brain by learning new things, there are five areas to pay special attention to regarding your brain health:
- Blood flow and oxygen level
- Energy production (ATP)
In a perfect world, your DNA provides a healthy foundation and your diet and exercise habits do the rest — but sometimes your brain needs a bit of a “kick” from medical supplements like Brain Retain, Benfotiamine, Vinpocetine, Curcuminoid BCM-95, ATP Activate and DHActive.
