Just 10 Hours of Brain Training Can Produce Benefits That Last 10 Years

As you age, even simple daily mental tasks can be harder.

But you don’t have to let this happen. And the solution may be easier than you think. A recent study proves it.

2,832 men and women were studied. Their average age was 74. All of them lived independently.

The training was focused on three things.

  • How fast they processed information.
  • How well they could reason.
  • How well they remembered things.

The results were impressive. After only 10 sessions of less than 90 minutes each, their skills in all areas improved. Even better, these results lasted 10 years.

Vitamins and Antioxidants under Attack

Recent headlines might have you rethink taking supplements.

But should you? After all who wouldn’t when seeing headlines like these:

  • Studies Suggest Multivitamins Are Useless and Possibly Dangerous
  • When Vitamins Backfire
  • Vitamin D health benefits found questionable at best
  • Supplements Tied to Higher Prostate Cancer Risk
  • Antioxidants may speed up lung cancer progression
