5 Tips to Help Improve Brain Health

As individuals age, their brains change and evolve. Similar to the physical body, there are preventative measures that can be taken to maintain a youthful and robust brain. There is an increasing body of evidence suggesting that the risk of cognitive decline can be reduced through healthy lifestyle choices. Here are five lifestyle modifications that can be implemented for brain health.


Maintain a Healthy Heart

The brain can be likened to a steering wheel, providing direction and control, while the heart can be compared to an engine, facilitating blood flow throughout the body. Without a healthy heart, the overall health and function of the body’s organs could be severely compromised.

Conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes should be promptly addressed and managed to prevent severe consequences. Tips on how a healthy lifestyle can support heart health can be found here.


Proper nutrition is crucial for maintaining brain health. The Mediterranean diet, also known as a flexitarian diet, focuses on plant-based foods, healthy fats, grains, and fish. Research indicates that communities following this diet have lower rates of Alzheimer’s compared to those that do not.

If the Mediterranean diet does not suit an individual’s preferences, incorporating plant-based foods into their diet can be beneficial.

Brain Exercise

Just as physical exercises like squats and deadlifts are needed to build leg muscles, activities such as reading, sudoku, and crossword puzzles can stimulate the brain and keep it sharp with age.

Acquire New Skills

Learning new skills, such as a new language or a musical instrument, can contribute to maintaining a healthy brain. It is recommended to learn real-world skills over spending excessive time on online brain games, which primarily improve game-related tasks rather than real-world abilities.

Quality Sleep

Recent research indicates that sleep deprivation can lead to cognitive issues such as impaired memory. If individuals suffer from sleep apnea or stress, they should seek ways to address these issues to ensure they get a full eight hours of sleep each night.

Purium and Brain Health

Purium is a strong proponent of helping individuals change their eating habits and lifestyle. Their superfoods are designed to assist individuals in leading long, healthy lives. In terms of brain health, there are two products that stand out.


Revive-It-All is a top-tier blend of antioxidants and herbs specifically formulated to support healthy brain function while promoting energy, vigor, and mental clarity.

White American Ginseng

White American Ginseng has been historically used for its revitalizing properties and its ability to restore balance in the body. The product contains at least 28 active ginsenosides which promote energy without causing jitteriness.
