Heart Health & Brain Health

MORE CONNECTED THAN YOU THINK

 

What helps your heart can help your brain too. Following a heart-healthy lifestyle can lower your chances of having a stroke, and it can also make a big difference in your mental abilities as you age. New studies have shown that the risk factors that can lead to heart disease and stroke, such as physical inactivity and obesity, also contribute to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss and cognitive dysfunction.

Those with heart-healthy habits in their 20s tend to have larger, healthier brains in their 40s. The brain is highly dependent on a healthy heart and circulatory system to work right, so it makes sense that heart-healthy living would result in a healthier brain. 

One strong predictor of brain health is high blood pressure, and it is the most significant risk factor for stroke. But a stroke can happen when you’re young. Hear first-hand from a young strong survivor about her personal experience and better understand your own risks.

Enjoy light refreshments, and a chance to win fabulous door prizes.
