The brain is the most complex tissue in all of the human body.
At about 1.4kg, it is one of the heaviest and most oxygen demanding organs, and uses up to 30% of the body's glucose supply to function. It allows us to sense and make sense of our environment, it lets us move with purpose, and feel and interpret emotions. It controls and coordinates all body function 24 hrs a day, without us having to think about it. Finally, it lets us think and shapes who we are with all our personality traits, habits, and individual quirks. How do we care for this precious organ?
There are three simple requirements for our brain to function well:
Is your brain getting enough oxygen? Is it getting quality fuel? And is it getting enough complex activation (movement)?
