Ways to Boost Your Brain Power

<br> <P>What you can do today to maximze memory and conquer cognitive problems.<br></P>

EVER FORGET WHERE YOU'RE PARKED?
CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT YOU NEED TO PICK UP FROM THE GROCERY STORE?
LITTLE MEMORY LAPSES CAN BE FRUSTRATING AND THEY CAN GET MUCH WORSE AS WE AGE.
FOR SOME, THEY CAN TURN INTO BIG PROBLEMS LIKE DEMENTIA OR ALZHEIMER'S... BUT THERE ARE SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW TO REDUCE YOUR RISK!
TONIGHT'S HEALTHCAST SHOW US WAYS TO BOOST BRAIN POWER.
IT'S THE 2012 U-S-A MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIP. MEMORY ATHLETES RACK THEIR BRAINS TRYING TO MEMORIZE PAGES OF NAMES AND FACES, A SHUFFLED DECK OF CARDS AND RANDOM NUMBERS.  DEFENDING CHAMP NELSON DELLIS BREAKS HIS OWN U-S RECORD BY MEMORIZING 303 DIGITS IN FIVE MINUTES! THE 27-YEAR OLD BELIEVES IT'LL BE BENEFICIAL WHEN HIS MEMORY STARTS TO GO. NEW RESEARCH SHOWS AT JUST 45 YEARS OLD, OUR BRAIN POWER CAN START DECLINING! NEUROLOGIST PAUL SCHULZ ISN'T SURPRISED BY THE FINDINGS
"Starting at around the age of 20, people's memory and attention span peaks."
HE SAYS BY AGE 80, NORMAL PEOPLE HAVE LOST 40-PERCENT OF THEIR MEMORY. BUT THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO FIGHT COGNITIVE PROBLEMS. FIRST, FOCUS ON FOCUSING!   PLAY WORD GAMES OR SUDOKU. LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE. READ BOOKS AND MAGAZINES AND DISCUSS THEM WITH OTHERS, AND DON'T FORGET TO FEED YOUR BRAIN! A RECENT STUDY FINDS COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO ATE TWO OUNCES OF WALNUTS DAILY IMPROVED REASONING SKILLS AND NEW RESEARCH SHOWS THESE BERRIES' ANTIOXIDANTS CAN KEEP YOUR MEMORY SHARP.
MEANWHILE, STUDIES ARE MIXED ON THE BRAIN BOOSTING ABILITIES OF THE OMEGA-THREE FATTY ACID. D-H-A FOUND IN FISH LIKE SALMON.
"I take those religiously."
NELSON TOOK D-H-A BEFORE THE COMPETITION. HE ALSO ATE SALMON AND BLUEBERRIES. A FEW THINGS THAT MAY HAVE HELPED HIM WIN THIS! HIS SECOND MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIP IN TWO YEARS.
A MEMORY HE'LL NEVER FORGET.
 NELSON ALSO DID SOME PUSH-UPS BEFORE THE MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIP.
 DOCTOR SCHULZ SAYS PHYSICAL EXERCISE HELPS BOOST BRAIN POWER ACROSS THE BOARD. 
 HE TELLS US ALL IT TAKES IS 20 TO 30 MINUTES OF AEROBIC EXERCISE FOUR TIMES A WEEK.
MEANWHILE, NELSON'S PLANNING TO CLIMB MOUNT EVEREST FOR A SECOND TIME IN 20-13 TO RAISE AWARENESS AND MONEY FOR ALZHEIMER'S.
