Antioxidants Lower the Risk of Cataracts - The Life Extension Blog | The Science of Aging Well | Scoop.it
Brendan Wilde's insight:

The studies evaluated the risk of cataracts in association with blood levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene, and beta-cryptoxanthin.1

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain

Sweat Your Way To A Healthier Brain | The Science of Aging Well | Scoop.it

"He feels smarter already."

 

Moving your body may be the best way to protect your brain.

 

Physical exercise can ease depression, slow age-related memory loss and prevent Parkinson-like symptoms, researchers reported at the Society for Neuroscience meeting underway in San Diego.

 

The findings — some in animals, some in people — suggest that people may be making a mistake if they're relying primarily on crossword puzzles and brain-training games for mental wellness.

THE MIND HAS GREAT influence over the body, and maladies often have their origin there. — Moliere What were Dean Ornish, Mehmet Oz, Dan Brown, the Dalai Lama, and I all doing in Woodstock, New York?
Brendan Wilde's insight:

Scientists have shown how #meditation makes the brain bigger and better. They mapped the brain function of Tibetan lamas trained in concentration and mental control and found higher levels of gamma brain waves and thicker brain cortexes (the areas associated with higher brain function) in meditators.
