Alzheimer’s Risk Cut in Half!

Alzheimer’s Risk Cut in Half!

When you survey people to determine what diseases they fear the most, Alzheimer’s is always among the top answers. Its been estimated that in America today there are approximately 5.4 million of us who’ve be...

Your Brain Really Does Have A Second Chance!

Your Brain Really Does Have A Second Chance!

Years ago, when I was in medical school, we were taught that humans lacked the ability to grow new brain cells. This was called the “central dogma” of brain physiology. Incredibly, the notion that the brain ...
Gut Bacteria & BDNF

Gut Bacteria & BDNF

What if I told you that your gut bacteria have a large role to play in levels of BDNF, or brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which acts like growth hormone for the brain? In this video we look at probiotic s...
DHA Keeps Your Brain Healthy

DHA Keeps Your Brain Healthy

DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that plays a central role in brain health. As I have discussed before, one of the key factors that correlates levels of DHA to brain health and disease resistance is DHA’s abilit...
High BDNF Tied to Lower Alzheimer’s Risk

High BDNF Tied to Lower Alzheimer’s Risk

Growth hormone for the brain. What a concept. Truth is, science has indeed identified a protein that does exactly that, and it’s called brain-derived neurotrophic hormone (BDNF). Knowing about BDNF is even m...
