The brain is the powerhouse and control center for all
physiological and cognitive functions. It contains billions of neurological
connections that work together to
carry out complex functions. The brain
controls unconscious physiological
activities such as breathing, pulse,
and digestion; and conscious activities
such as thinking, reasoning, and feeling.
The brain is a very complex, sensitive organ that needs to be properly nourished and constantly stimulated in order to function properly and retain flexibility much like an athlete. Over time, the build up of toxins from pollutants, drugs, residues and other sources inhibits proper circulation. Unless properly cared for, the brain receives less and less of the vital nutrients and antioxidants it needs to function properly. When the brain is not functioning properly, memory loss and a whole host of problems ensues.
A normal human brain weighs about 2% of the total body weight. It grows up to 75 - 80% of the adult size within the first two years and full size at the age of 6 years. But the brain shrinks as you grow older. The shrinking starts in adulthood and continues at an average rate of 2% per decade. This means that at 80, your brain will be 12% smaller than at 20.
