Brain Health: What Happens to Our Brain As We Age?

Brain Health

Does anyone know what happens to our brain as we age? What’s the situation of your brain health?

I know, right now another thing that happens with age.

First, it was decreased digestive enzymes and now it’s my brain!

When your brain shrinks, it affects your brain health and functions. There can be issues with focus, memory, and problem-solving. But the good news is, your brain can create new pathways with new learning.

Your brain has neuroplasticity but is needs certain chemicals to do this. One is Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, also known as BDNF, is a protein.  BDNF is a member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors, which are related to the canonical nerve growth factor. BDNF decreases with age.

What to do about this?

  1. Exercise daily at least 20 minutes.
  2. Calorie restriction. Not starving yourself, but not overeating either.
  3. My favorite Brain health supplements.

I’m so excited to share with you USANA’s new brain health supplement, CopaPrime. They’ve actually done clinical research on it testing the pre-frontal cortex before and after supplementation and doing cognitive tasks. Subjects were able to maintin focus with less effort. Now that’s something I can really use.
