Educate your friends and loved ones and make a difference in the fight to end Alzheimer’s!
The Science Behind Brain Health
The brain is the control center of your body. It requires stimulation and a constant supply of nutrients to function correctly. The brain undergoes natural changes as it ages, affecting memory and cognitive function. The good news is that a growing body of scientific research shows that caring for your brain health can reduce the risk of age-related cognitive decline.
Supporting a Healthy Brain
Here’s a look at some things you can do to boost your brain health:
Take Care of Your Health: Get your recommended screenings and manage health conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Quit smoking, limit alcohol intake, and get enough sleep. Keeping your body healthy will reflect on your brain function and cognitive health.
Stay Active: Regular exercise or physical activity will support your brain health. It also helps boost your energy and strength, improves your balance, prevents cardiovascular disease, lowers the risk of diabetes, and perks up your mood.
Exercise Your Mind: Mind activities include reading books, playing games, learning new skills, creative writing, working, or volunteering. Mental exercise can help promote brain function, lowering the risk of cognitive decline.
Limit Screen Time: Chronic sensory overstimulation resulting from excessive screen time when the brain is developing can contribute to cognitive decline. It substantially increases the rates of early-onset dementia later in adulthood.
Consume Healthy Foods: Maintaining a healthy diet reduces the risk of chronic diseases and supports a healthy brain. A nutritious diet may include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats or plant-based proteins, and low-fat or no-fat dairy products. Limit sugar and salt intake, control your portions, and drink plenty of water. Maintaining a healthy diet can lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline.
Brain Building Nutrients: Quality vitamins and nutrients play a role in your brain health, building a better memory, preventing Alzheimer’s and memory loss, and boosting your mental health and wellness. But how do you stay ahead of your vitamin and nutrient needs to support a healthy brain?
Oral Vitamin and Nutrient Drawbacks
Quality vitamins and supplements are essential to restore your micronutrient levels and enhance your brain health. Oral supplements may not offer the needed solution. After all, who wants to deal with dozens of vitamin bottles? Moreover, 40 percent of adults have difficulty swallowing pills, including people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Aside from their inconvenience, oral supplements must first travel through the hostile environment of the digestive tract, deal with stomach acids, pass through the liver, and finally make it to the bloodstream. The active ingredients are reduced over and over during this tedious journey, and much of their value is lost.
