Dr. Bruce Daggy, nutritionist, explains how our brains decline, starting at the age of 20. But, it’s not the loss of brain cells, it’s the loss of connections between the neurons that causes the decline.
Recommendations from Dr. Daggy:
Good nutrition, including fish for the omega 3’s, fruits and vegetables for antioxidants and healthy beverages.
Supplementation, because it’s hard to get all the nutrition we need from the food we eat. Dr. Daggy recommends MindWorks
Play brain games using a program like CogniFit that determine your current status and track your progress.
Set an alarm clock for an hour before bedtime. Use that hour to slow down so you can get a good night’s sleep.
