The cells of the brain are very vulnerable to reduced
blood and oxygen volumes. In addition, many nutritional
elements have molecules that are too big to cross the
brain barrier. Hence, the brain is very vulnerable to
aging through lack of nutrition and lack of exercise,
just as the rest of the body.
Conditions such as memory loss, poor concentration
and alzheimers have shown to respond well to correct
nutrition and stimulation.
The ensure the brain is well nourished depends on having
a healthy cardio-vascular system, to push adequate freshly
oxygenated blood, carry nutrition to the brain.
Two key nutrients to support brain function are fatty
acids [monounsaturated fats] and antioxidants.
Omega-3 helps reduce the risk of dementia risk by balancing
the inflammatory effect of so called bad fats like omega-6s
[corn oil and soybean oil]. Read more on Omega-3
