My mother was sharp as a tack until my father died last
year. She is 85 years old and once my father passed
away she lost the will to live and decided to stop
taking all of her supplements. Now her cognition is
failing and I can't help but attribute it at least partially to
the fact that she is no longer taking antiaging and
memory enhancing supplements. Well so it goes...
Here are my tips to maintaining and improving your
1. Get plenty of exercise. Exercise improves the
blood flow to the brain and thus helps oxygenate the
brain. This helps clarify the mind as well as producing
endorphins which help to combat depression,and
mental fuzziness .
2. Take a multivitamin and antioxidant. This will
preserve your cellular health and also help to slow the
aging process. Even if you eat a perfect diet , the
stress we are under in our society and the pollution we
encounter every day can cause cellular aging and
increased cortisol levels which also diminish brain
3. Take your fish oil. Fish oils contain the highest
amounts of DHA and EPA. Call me or email me for
exact dosages as I do not like to make any specific
recommendations in these emails.
4. Acetyl L-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid taken
together have been scientifically shown in research
studies done at UC Berkeley to reverse the aging
process. This includes the brain as well.
5. Another powerful antioxidant is CoQ10. Not
only is it antiaging, and good for your heart, it also
lowers blood pressure in those who need that type of
support. Another good reason to put it in your health
6. Use your brain! Those seniors who stayed
intellectually engaged through reading, working
learning new things (new neuronal pathways as my
husband likes to say) and doing puzzles had lower
rates of dementia than those who took a less mentally
active approach to life. Use it or lose it!
7. Manage your stress! Those who practice
meditation and yoga also had stronger cognitive
function as they aged.
