BRAIN HEALTH #1: BRAIN HEALTH AND AGING – The brain begins losing cells by age 23 and changes in the brain can be detected by age 30. The most common results of normal brain aging are an inability to recall names or facts, and an inability to multi-task or solve complex problems. In most people the Sea Horse-shaped structure called the Hippocampus (Latin for Sea Horse) gets smaller with age. With a more advanced brain deterioration called Mild Cognitive Impairment or MCI and with dementias like Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, and Parkinson’s Disease the Hippocampus is even smaller. One in three seniors die of dementia, and 80% have heart disease so in my next post, I will discuss how keeping a healthy heart will help your brain stay healthy- so stay tuned!! #drdavidheber #brain #aging #dementia #memory #thinking to learn more go to and and read PERSONALIZED NUTRITION AND TRANSFORMATION available on as an e-book for $5.49
