Memory problems affect many people. Sometimes it can be minor by not being able to come up with a friend’s name or where you left your car keys and other times it can be very serious. One in five Americans between the ages of 75 and 84 develop Alzheimer’s Disease. Beyond age 85, it hits almost half of us.
This eBook on why memory fails us is divided into two parts. The first part addresses how memories are formed and ultimately stored in the hippocampus. The “Science” of memory and the second half of this eBook will focus on things we can do to promote mental and physical health such as which foods are best for brain health, how sleep affects our brain, and which metals to avoid that are toxic and may contribute to amyloid plaque (believed by some researchers to be the cause of Alzheimer’s).
Brain health is vital to protecting and keeping memory and avoiding Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
