These days many people over 55 who see themselves as becoming forgetful are concerned about developing Alzheimer’s. Of course, some of this is natural, we all forget at times. Our busy lifestyles can cause stress which contributes to forgetfulness. Of course, it does not mean that every time you misplace your keys that you have early Alzheimer’s.
Brain cells need to communicate for memory to happen. This communication happens over synapses. Remember during the recent heatwave Con Ed lowered the electricity, causing a brown out. As a result, lights and air conditioners had a lower output and did not work as well.
Your brain is like an electrical circuit with information traveling through synapses. There is a positive correlation between the quality of information going through the synapses and the brain’s ability to hold on to memory. When the current runs strong through your synapses your memories are filed and recall happens quickly.
Chronic stress from chronic pain or constant worry without resolve or continued poor sleep impairs the functionality of the brain’s communication system.
Test Your Memory
Take the new memory screening test. The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America developed a new memory screening test to more accurately test memory using speed, pictures and focus as indicators of memory.
The link in the button below opens a new tab so you can come back here and finish the test.
If your score was:
- Not as good as you would like
- If you have dementia in the family
- Have chronic stress
- Are concerned about brain health
If you said yes to at least 2 of these you want to take action now to support a healthy brain.
Turn On Neural Pathways
Ageloc Youth has been shown in clinical trials through functional MRI to turn on pathways in the brain. See the photo.
