In this week’s episode, we’re talking about the crown jewel of the human body. That’s right, let’s talk about that brain in your noggin. Have you ever wondered what you can do to decrease lack of concentration, increase focus, and increase your mental clarity? Maybe you just want to be proactive against dementia, brain inflammation, neurodegeneration, and other conditions that affect the health and longevity of your brain. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. Michelle and Diana are going to lay out their 5 Pillars for Good Brain Health.

We’re talking about increasing your ‘brain-derived neurotrophic factor.’ What the func is that? Well, it’s responsible for mood, memory, and long term brain health. Keeping your BDNF levels up is crucial to your brain’s health and can be accomplished with exercise, sleep, fasting, fatty acids, and, yes, we’re talking about nootropics. Tune in to learn how each of these can help keep those wheels spinning.
