It’s easy to take our mental health for granted. When you’re young, it’s usually not something you think you need to be concerned about. But the facts are right there in front of us. Studies in the last few years show that age-related mental decline can start as early as age 45. And brain shrinkage can even start in the 30s. So it’s important to start thinking about what you can do to improve your brain health. And then take action!
Ponder this: Every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s.
“More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States
1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women.
A woman in her 60’s has an estimated lifetime risk for developing Alzheimer’s is 1 in 6. For breast cancer it is 1 in 11.
Previous Studies indicate that Walnuts Help with Brain Function.
Walnuts may help your memory was the conclusion of a report published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in 2012.
Diet of walnuts and blueberries may help maintain brain function. It was found that shorter chain fatty acids found in plants, such as walnuts, may have beneficial effects on brain function.
Increase your brain size with walnuts. Study found that those with a low level of omega 3 had smaller brain volumes than those with higher levels.”

In addition to eating certain brain boosting foods and getting in some brain busting exercise everyday, consider supplementing with Shaklee’s revolutionary new product, “MindWorks”. (Get it here.)
Scientific studies have shown the key ingredients in MindWorks work in 3 ways:
Immediate improvement in cognitive performance, 3X better than the control group**
Over time, neural connections become less efficient, impairing our ability to recall, think, and respond. A key nutrient in MindWorks was shown in multiple clinical studies to significantly enhance memory, sharpen focus, and improve reaction time.*
Protects against age-related mental decline*
Key nutrients in MindWorks were shown in laboratory studies to promote the formation of new neural connections and in a clinical study to reduce brain shrinkage rate by 30% over two years.† In addition, MindWorks key nutrients were shown in laboratory studies to effectively cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain.*
Supports healthy circulation*
Blood circulation is critical for delivery of oxygen and key nutrients to the brain. It is linked to neural activity.*
**At 6 hours vs. control
†Based on a two-year study of 223 adults with mild cognitive impairment
And don’t forget about flexing your mental muscle another way: Every MindWorks bottle purchased includes a free month of access to brain-training software from CogniFit. An email will be sent to you within 48 hours of purchase including a link to activate your CogniFit account and your unique login code.
