How Do Brain Health and Heart Health Go Hand in Hand?
Better heart health at middle age is associated with improved brain health and a lower risk for cognitive decline, according to findings from a study that spanned 25 years.
In fact, making just incremental improvements with your heart health can result in powerful benefits to your brain health and brain volume as you age. It is important to note the study was observational and the connection proved to be a correlation rather than direct, causal links. But ultimately, there is no harm in taking steps to protect your heart. Psychology Today has even more.
