7 Tips for a Healthy Brain

These seven steps can promote a healthy brain and sharp memory.

  1. DO eat according to the Pan Asian Mediterranean (PAM) diet. It's loaded with antioxidant-rich fruits and healthy fats that promote a healthy brain.

  2. DON'T eat trans fatty acids which contribute to heart disease and Alzheimer's.

  3. DON'T drink excessive alcohol, which causes premature aging of the brain.

  4. DO place a filter on your kitchen tap that removes heavy metals and chlorine from your drinking water.

  5. DO avoid products that contain aluminum, such as deodorants, antacids and baking powder (aluminum can cause early aging!). Do not drink out of aluminum cans.

  6. DO make sure you exercise your mind with crossword puzzles, reading and other activities that will increase your mental sharpness and a healthy brain.

  7. DO keep homocysteine levels under 9 for a healthy brain.
