Supplementation can be a fantastic way to keep your brain and body healthy, but don't depend on supplements alone. Choosing the right supplements means that you can "fill in the gaps" for what may be lacking in your diet. For example, it is quite difficult to get all your trace minerals, such as copper, through diet alone, and again this is where supplementation comes in play.

Diet is the foundation of your health program both for your mind and your body. Choose foods that are brain healthy, such as wild Alaskan salmon, sardines and walnuts. All of these foods have brain and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. This is an important way to keep your entire body healthy.
