Do you have any concerns about how your brain will age? What are the signs of cognitive decline and, more importantly, can it be stalled or reversed? Too often we focus on the body and the conditions that can arise as we age. But, what about our brain? How does it age? Can we stop serious conditions like Alzheimer’s or dementia?
