Improve your memory and brain power and live longer - well. Learn why people of all ages should take steps now to protect and strengthen their brain to improve their current mental power and to reduce their risk of dementia in the future. Discover which foods and lifestyle habits harm our brains and which help our most vital organ.

I am passionate about brain health because it's personal for me. My mother recently passed away from Alzheimer’s disease, and so I am dedicated to doing everything that I can to stay healthy for my young daughter. What excites me most is that everything that is good for your brain is also good for your overall health and happiness. It’s a ‘no brainer’ to take action once you understand the science!
