Two Weeks to a Healthier & Younger Brain
Just as your body changes with age, so does your brain.

Unfortunately, as you age, it's common to experience a mental decline.

You might think this would start to happen in your later years, but recent research conducted from Northwestern University found that an abnormal protein (amyloid) may start to accumulate in your brain as early as your 20s.

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive brain disorder that damages and eventually destroys brain cells.

This leads to memory loss, changes in brain function and thinking. According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than five million Americans are living with this disease and it is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.

Over 85% of all Alzheimer's cases occur in the United States, Western Europe and developed Asian countries.

Gary Small, MD, discusses why brain health is so important, as well as how two weeks is all you need to for a healthier and younger brain.
