Deteriorating brain health is usually diagnosed based on problems with cognition or memory. People have long suspected that specific nutrients can positively affect cognitive functions such as learning and memory. In fact, many nutrients can actually modify aging brain function, in part by increasing formation of brain synapses. A steady intake of food-based antioxidants is important to protecting your DNA and lowering risk of diseases.

Cognition is a general term that refers to the ability to know and includes the following:

  • Perception
  • Recognition
  • Though
  • Learning
  • Reasoning
  • Problem solving
  • Imagination
  • Mental clarity
  • Ability to concentrate and focus
  • Verbal, visual and spatial memory
