FAQ about brain health
What is brain health?
A healthy brain, supported by adequate blood flow, is essential for living a longer and fuller life. Brain health enables thought, planned action and emotional connections that impact the daily lives and progress of individuals, families and communities. A healthy brain is able to:
• pay attention receive and recognize input from our senses
• learn and remember
• solve problems and make decisions
• support movement and
• regulate emotions
The advisory from the American Heart Association goes further in defining ideal brain health so that it can be measured, monitored and modified. This is important so that researchers and policy makers can identify whether we are making progress towards lessening the impact of dementia as life expectancy increases and the population ages.
This is the first American Heart Association advisory on measuring important factors supporting brain health. The authors recommend that ideal brain health be measured against the seven metrics – Life’s Simple 7 – that were originally developed by the American Heart Association to define ideal cardiovascular health. Life’s Simple 7 includes 4 ideal health behaviors and three ideal health factors:
• physical activity at goal levels
• healthy diet consistent with current guidelines
• weight: body mass index
• untreated blood pressure
• untreated total cholesterol
• and fasting blood glucose
Please know that in the event of severe weather, some activities may be canceled and rescheduled for safety precautions.
