Brain Maintenance Program
I Andy Lee Graham, and it has become painfully obvious that my older parents, family and friends brains are becoming slow also. It seems wise to believe, that if can see people my age slowing, then why wouldn't my own brain be slowing? I am 56 years old.
This page is a research page full of information I have collected with the goal of keeping the brain working until age 100.
Goals: To optimize the foods, vitamins, exercises, and lifestyle whereby the brain can thrive.
Brain Health - Move to Africa. The is a book called "The First 20 Minutes" by Gretchen Reynolds who explains the first 20 minutes of exercise is valuable. An invention is taking 2-5 idea and combining into something simple to use, that makes something easy, that was difficult.

2. Sleeping at Night and before bed:
1. Remove Pillow: The pillow elevates your head above your body, and allows the brain to drain blood. By removing the pillow the blood can flow directly to the brain because there is no bending of blood supply. Primitive man did not have pillows, this is an anti-evolutionary development, that is not natural.
2. Elevate your feet: By raising the bed just a few inches, you can force more blood and oxygen into your brain while you sleep.
3. Drink a glass of water: This will ensure that the blood, and body has sufficient supply of water. A dehydrate body has more problems pumping blood.
Clean or Flush the Blood, Bowels, Intestines, and Colon: To induce them to become clean. The body needs to have fast moving systems to keep them running properly.
--- Overeat these foods, with plenty of water.
Eat a whole coconut, the next day you will have diarrhea.
Popcorn is a good way to keep it working..
Whole Kernel corn, corn on the cob, etc.
Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, nuts
Peanuts, complete with shells.
Swallow Un-cooked popcorn

Chemistry for the Brain:
Omega-3 fatty acids or DHA --- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary structural component of the human brain cerebral cortex, sperm, testicles and retina. It can be synthesized from alpha-linolenic acid or obtained directly from fish oil.
Folic acid also known as vitamin B9, vitamin B or folacin and folate the form naturally occurring in the body, as well as pteroyl-L-glutamic acid, pteroyl-L-glutamate, and pteroylmonoglutamic acid are forms of the water-soluble vitamin B9. Folic acid is itself not biologically active, but its biological importance is due to tetrahydrofolate and other derivatives after its conversion from dihydrofolic acid in the liver. Vitamin B9 (folic acid and folate inclusive) is essential to numerous bodily functions. The human body needs folate to synthesize DNA, repair DNA, and methylate DNA as well as to act as a cofactor in biological reactions involving folate. It is especially important in aiding rapid cell division and growth, such as in infancy and pregnancy. Children and adults both require folic acid to produce healthy red blood cells and prevent anemia.
Iodine: Known to improve mental clarity.
Magnesium L-Threonate: "In preliminary research published in the prestigious journal Neuron in 2010, MIT researchers screened every available form of supplemental magnesium and demonstrated in an animal model that Magnesium L-Threonate—and only Magnesium L-Threonate—has the ability to cross into the brain and boost magnesium levels. In their experiments, this increase in brain magnesium concentrations resulted in observable benefits in key cognitive measures." Read
Vitamins to take daily
Magnesium L-Threonate: This is difficult, the only way I know to have it is to buy from Amazon.com.

Below could be correct, but too many questions to recommend.
Antioxidant: An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. They do this by being oxidized themselves, so antioxidants are often reducing agents such as thiols, ascorbic acid, or polyphenols.
Blueberries and strawberries: Antioxidant - Journal of Neuroscience suggests that blueberry extract can improve short term memory loss.
Dark chocolate: Antioxidant, Natural stimulants
Almonds or Cashews:
