Why is brain health important?

Maintaining a healthy brain day to day is important to stay sharp and feel good - but keeping a focus on this in the longer term has wider significance. This is because leading research indicates that it is possible to lower the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s – in part by maintaining a healthy brain. This means that it may be possible to prevent or delay the onset of such diseases.  

How can we help?

At Brain Health Network, we’re working with academics at leading institutions around the world to learn more about the latest research they’re doing related to brain health. We help explain their findings and recommendations in a clear and understandable way, so you don’t have to read through any academic journals (but you’ll still be able to find the source material, if you’re interested).
