Brain Health for Aging
The elderly population (age 65 and above) in the United States is expected to grow by twenty to fifty percent by 2030. The biggest concern while aging is maintaining quality of life.

Nutrition is the largest factor in maintaining health and preventing illness as we age. A plant-based diet is ideal. Animal proteins should be non-GMO and organic.

Listen as Dr. John Lewis joins Dr. Susanne Bennett discuss how to maintain brain health as you age.
