Understanding cognitive functions and what we can do to age well
A chemical imbalance in the body, like a micronutrient deficiency, a high level of chronic inflammation or toxins resulting from an unhealthy lifestyle can negatively impact our brain functioning, potentially leading to symptoms of cognitive decline. Women appear to be particularly vulnerable due to the added effect of hormonal imbalances.
