  • Can’t find your car keys in a regular basis?
  • Don’t remember why you are standing in the cool room downstairs?
  • Is it diminished brain function – of loss of focus?

“The notion of losing one’s mind as we age is not as unavoidable as we are led to believe.”

memory-lossNew research into our incredible memory and brain function is absolutely “mind” boggling. We can actually continue to improve our mind and increase our memory as we age. Don’t let your biological age stop you if you‘ve always wanted to sign up for Spanish classes but never had the time!

Improving brain function has more to do with exercise than even a brain-supporting high Omega 3 supplement or diet.  Aerobic exercise for 20 minutes 6 days a week seems to be optimal. Aerobic exercise translates in keeping your heart rate at a comfortable 110 to 130 beats per minute.   Subtract your age from 180 to establish your ideal target.

If walking is your favorite form of outdoor exercise, be sure to go at a speed that raises your heart rate.   Having a heart monitor is a great help at least until you have your best guess within your personal range.

The benefits of quality exercise almost every day reaches far beyond improved brain function. Fresh air and vigorous exercise improve circulation, digestive and lymphatic function. Add to that a good night’s sleep and you ‘ll be waking up in the morning ready to dance into a new day and get a head start on your Spanish.

Afke’s Lemon-Ginger-Apple Cleanse
It never hurts your thinking to keep your gut polished and it is the secret to a happy liver and kidneys. The following  drink gives your gut a good rinse.  Making this day a “plant to plate” day will increase the benefits even more. Alternately, give your digestive tract a rest and commit to a one-day liquid cleanse. The following protocol is simply effortless and tastes great.

  • ½ cup apple juice ( x 5 = 2.5 cups)
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice ( x 5 = 10 TBSP)
  • 1 TSP freshly juiced ginger root ( x 5 = 5 TSP)
  • ½ TSP sea salt ( x 5 = 2.5 TSP)
  • ½ cup warm water ( cx 5 = 2.5 cups)
  • Quintuple the recipe all at once and you’ll be set for the whole day!

Drink one 8 oz glass on an empty stomach upon rising. Another 8 oz glass before lunch and one during or right after lunch. Two 8 oz glasses between 6 and 7 p.m. Easy peasy – lemon squeezy!
