									                        Tips For Excellent Brain Health
Health tends to be on the thought of many Americans minds. However, the health of our
minds typically is not thought about as much as it should be. Having a healthy mind should be
thought about far more often than it is. This article will provide you 3 tips for excellent brain
health.

1. Did you know that vitamin deficiency, which many Americans suffer from, can increase the
risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, and depression? Let alone heart attacks, strokes,
and several forms of cancer. Alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, sugar, and even meat can deplete us
of critical B vitamins.

                                                     You first need to decrease your intake of
                                                     these items. Next, increase your intake of
                                                     beans and green leafy vegetables. It is
                                                     also a good idea to talk to your doctor to
                                                     find out your blood level of homocysteine.
                                                     The doctor will most likely recommend
                                                     supplements that can help ensure you are
                                                     at the proper level.

                                                     2. It is common knowledge that sugar
                                                     increase obesity, responsible for 2/3 of
                                                     Americans with obesity, which also causes
                                                     diabetes. However, did you know that
                                                     diabetes increases your risk to suffer from
                                                     dementia by four times? That is a
                                                     staggering statistic, and one that is easy
                                                     to address.

                                                     You should first go to a doctor and take a
                                                     blood test called a glucose tolerance test.
This test will decide if you are at risk from consuming sugar. If the test results are unfavorable
you should quit sugar and start exercising more, which you should also do if the test results
are favorable.

3. Brain function suffers over time due to sleep deprivation. If you do not get enough
sleep, your brain hormones become imbalanced, causing higher cortisol, responsible for
stress, and lower growth hormones, responsible for healing and repair.

It is important that you get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night. It is best if you go to bed and
wake up at the same time each day. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid any stimulating
activity one hour before bedtime, such as watching TV or doing work. Also, take supplemental
magnesium like magnesium glycinate because it is a relaxation mineral.

Your brain’s health is an issue that should be important to you. What you do in your young
days will have a deep impact on how well your brain health is when you become older. Follow
the 3 tips for excellent brain health listed in this article and you will begin to have a healthier
brain.
