What Stresses your Brain?

Causes of Brain Aging

Hundreds of factors have been shown to cause brain aging. Where do we even start? The key to success is to tackle the stressors in an organized way. Basically, if you can identify and remedy these four main sources of brain stressors, optimal brain power can be achieved, by freeing up your brain for functional enhancement rather than expensing energy repairing the damages cause by brain stress. The four main categories of brain stressors are: Circadian Disruption, Inflammation, Glycemic dysregulation and Emotional stress.

Chronic stress, feeling burned-out, overwhelmed, and lingering negative feelings induced by toxic relationships can all cause brain cell damage and overtime, brain volume loss, setting the stage for depression and dementia.
