Secrets Of The Super Agers – Living Long AND Living Well

 

– Study seeks super agers’ secrets to brain health.secrets to super agers

They’re called “super agers” – men and women who are in their 80’s & 90’s, but with brains and memories that seem far younger.  Researchers are looking at this rare group in the hope that they may find ways to help protect others from memory loss.  They’ve found some tantalizing findings:  Imaging tests have found unusually low amounts of age-related plaques along with more brain mass related to attention and memory in these elite seniors.  “We’re living long but we’re not necessarily living well in our older years and so we hope that the “Super Aging” study can find factors that are modifiable and that we’ll be able to use those to help people live long AND live well,” said study leader Emily Rogalski, a neuroscientist at Northwestern University’s cognitive neurology and Alzheimer’s disease center.

Factors such as stress, poor diet, and environmental toxins can have a big impact on our brains.  It can weaken our cells’ natural defenses, lower cell energy, damage DNA, and decrease cell performance—all of which can contribute to age related plaques on the brain & overall cellular aging.  So what can we do to try and combat these age related plaques and other damage to our brain so we can become Super Agers!?  START HERE and see what the brightest people are finding out about fighting brain aging.
