It’s never too late to start your journey towards better brain health. What you put in your stomach now affects your brain later – including your ability to think, remember and process information. Research has shown that the healthiest eaters at age 50 had a nearly 90 percent lower risk of dementia compared to those who had the least healthy diets.
Physical fitness is the other key to maintaining brain health. Being physically active in midlife could improve your brain function decades from now. This means that the type of activity you do isn’t as important as being active. Choose what you enjoy and stick with it. Your brain will thank you.
