The human brain is one of your most vital organs. It plays a role in every action and every thought, and just like the rest of your body, it needs to be looked after.
Can Alzheimer's disease be prevented? There are no guarantees, but healthy lifestyle choices will help keep your brain as healthy as possible as you age.
By making better lifestyle choices now, you can improve your brain's ability to sustain long-term health and fight illnesses.
Be good to your brain:
- Challenge yourself
- Be socially active
- Follow a healthy diet
- Be physically active
- Reduce stress
- Protect your head
- Make healthy lifestyle choices
- Do your brain a favour - volunteer!
