Make Your Brain 10 Years Younger?!
There’s a lot more to brain health than avoiding Alzheimer’s and dementia.
You want to be able to recall the lead actor from your favorite movie… easily keep up with the conversation when you’re with a group of friends… and make sure you’re not vulnerable to things like phone scammers.
Sure, there are many healthy foods can keep your brain sharp as a tack.
But there’s something else you can to make your brain 10 years younger.
And it has nothing to do with what’s on your dinner plate.
A recent study published in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry studied data from more than 19,000 people over 50 years old.
They wanted to know who regularly completely puzzles like crosswords and Sudoku. And then they had them complete a series of tests evaluating attention, memory, and reasoning.
You probably already know where this is going.
The individuals who regularly completely puzzles performed better on the tests, indicating that they had better brain function.
In fact, the puzzle-players had the brain function equivalent of someone 10 years younger!
And when they looked specifically at tests of short-term memory, their brain function was that of someone eight years younger.
The most dramatic benefits were seen in the areas of speed and accuracy.
In other words, people who regularly do these puzzles are much more likely to stay sharp as a tack… and are much less likely to experience those notorious senior moments.
This study supports previous research that has shown that these types of puzzles can help maintain brain function.
Now, what this study is NOT saying is that crossword puzzles can help prevent dementia. What it IS saying is that it could possibly help keep your brain functioning better, faster – and younger.
If you’re not into puzzles, don’t worry. You can expect the same benefits from any exercise that “works out” your brain – including activities like learning a new language or taking up a new hobby.
