As the baby boomers get older, Alzheimer’s disease is becoming more and more common. June this year was Alzheimer’s awareness month, hopefully you didn’t forget ☺. Here are some products to take on a regular basis to keep yourself mentally sharp.
Not only does this product supply recommended levels of omega 3’s, but also includes the invaluable brain fat, DHA.
Has been shown to improve cognition and overall mental proficiency. Supplies vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and folate.
This new product includes Ginkgo biloba, huperzia serrata, and acetyl-L-carnitine and was developed to address acetylcholine need, and to give the brain the nutrients it needs to function at a higher level.
I wish I could tell you that just taking supplements could stave off this disease, but they can’t. However, some easy lifestyle changes can go a long way in preventing symptoms and onset of the disease.
Be Good to Your Heart
Reduce stress and eat good fats. What’s good for the heart is also good for the brain.
Mix It Up
Have you ever tried eating with your non-dominate hand? How about brushing your teeth? Doing new tasks can create new neural pathways, making your brain more pliable and sharp.
Learn Something New
Personally, I have been trying to learn how to whistle. My coworkers may not be happy about it. Lately the “whistle” sounds like a teapot about to burst.
Enjoy Strategy Games
Play cards, do a jigsaw puzzle, or try the Sunday crossword.
