BRAIN HEALTH #3: KEEP YOUR HEART HEALTHY- The second most common cause of death after heart failure is brain failure known as Dementia. One of every three people over 65 will die with Dementia and 80 percent of those people have underlying vascular disease of the brain caused by the same risk factors that promote atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries in the heart. The blood supply to the brain is critical as it delivers oxygen and nutrients essential for life. While most organs get blood supplies from either the right or left sides of the body, the brain has a circle of blood vessels at the base of the brain, called the Circle of Willis. If blood flow from one side is stopped, the blood from the heart simply goes around this circle from the opposite side keeping the brain alive. Your body knows the importance of the heart to the brain, and so should you! Keeping your heart healthy by losing excess abdominal fat, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and controlling blood pressure and blood sugar are steps you can take to help your brain stay healthy as you age. Brain aging starts in your 20’s and 30’s, so it is never too early to start Balanced Nutrition and a Healthy Active Lifestyle!! #drdavidheber #heart #brain #aging #dementia to learn more go to and and read PERSONALIZED NUTRITION AND TRANSFORMATION available as an e-book on for $5.49
