Guest Report: Boost your Brain Health


 
Diet and exercise are just as important for your mind as they are for your body.   Preventing  Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia will help you “Feel Better and Live Longer!”   Following a brain-healthy diet provides many benefits, including reducing your risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.  To boost your brain health, think about improving the blood flow to the brain. 
Consuming healthy fats from nuts, seeds, and avocados will help to lower your bad cholesterol and improve blood flow to the heart and brain.  Antioxidants from almonds, walnuts and pecans help to protect brain cells from cell-damaging free radicals.  Be proactive and be protective of your brain health by consuming nutrient dense fruits and veggies that promote brain health.  Include “B” foods like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, beets, blueberries, and blackberries, which all contain brain healthy benefits. 
Exercise keeps the mind and body in shape.  Get 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity per week to increase blood flow and oxygenation to both heart and brain cells.  Numerous studies show that exercise can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and overall cognitive decline.  Practice brain aerobics by participating in things that engage your attention, involve the senses and introduce new concepts. 
Coaching you to "Feel Better and Live Longer!"
