BDNF–Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor–is a key growth hormone. It protects the structure and integrity of our neurons, enables our neuroplasticity–that’s our ability to create new neural maps, and promotes neurogenesis–our ability to grow new brain cells. By creating new pathways we empower ourselves to shift patterns, trauma, and open to new skills and abilities. Neurogenesis turns back our brain’s clock, making us cognitively younger or more vibrant. So–how do we get more of this amazing substance? Actually–it’s simple: cut back your calories, do 20 mins of aerobic exercise a day, meditate regularly and take DHA (available at any store these days). Your food and choices could change your life. How much more is waiting for you?
