As it turns out, the old saying “use it or lose it” applies to brain health as much as your biceps.
In other words, you can change and strengthen your brain — if you put your mind to it (no pun intended).
“It wasn’t so long ago that we thought you were born with all your brain cells, which will eventually die. Now we know that it’s possible for brains to change and to make new connections and neurons,” says Emily Rogalski in a recent Chicago Tribune interview.
She’s a neuroscientist at the Alzheimer’s Disease Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and lead author of a new study involving “super agers” — people in their 80s and beyond who have memory and cognitive function of people half their age.
Rogalski and her team are trying to find out what makes super agers so sharp.
And nimble, too.
These people with better brain health have more energy, they look younger, they’re more concerned about others than themselves, and have a great attitude. Everything about them seems younger than their peers.
Hmmm… sounds like a certain 79-year-old Hallelujah Diet Founder we know. 🙂
Speaking of which, can you believe that diet is not part of this new study?!
And when you have more energy, you want to do more with your life.
Surely this study will find different reasons why these whipper-snappin’ seniors live so youthfully.
But you don’t have to wait for the study results.
Changing your diet is something that anyone can do at any time — so you can start protecting yourself against Alzheimer’s and enjoying the benefits of better brain health and younger, more vibrant living… right now![quote]Do you feel younger or older than you really are?
